  • "Second visit to Lemeac was once again irreproachable! We had steak/frites, calf liver, and salmon tartare. The steak and liver are both better than L'Express. The salmon tartare was very fresh but our daughter was not fond of the truffle oil and preferred the classic version of tartare she had at our first visit. The terrace is lovely. There is enough distance between tables that patrons can feel comfortable discussing without being overheard and without overhearing others talking. We arrived at 5:30 on a Sunday and when we left at 7:30 the restaurant was full. Service is superior, they never rush you, very attentive without ever being intrusive. Mid price range for three people entrees, main meal and desserts before tax $135 + great wines"

  • "Bistro at its best. A bit expensive but good value. Noise can be a problem inside at peak hours, like so many similar bistros."

  • "A Montreal resident recommended Lemeac as the best restaurant and her personal favorite of Montreal to my girlfriend days before we left for the city from Chicago. She gave us the best insider tip we could have received! It is a very classic place French restaurant, with a wonderful indoor-outdoor dining room and energetic, friendly crowd. Our drinks were very good and the food was even better. Our first bite of the salmon tartare appetizer let us know we were in for a real treat. The highest recommendations."

  • "Never disappoints. Excellent fish soup, gazpacho, goat cheese salad. Guinea hen was a winner for our cousins, who said it was the best meal they had had in a long time. I had a very generous portion of duck Margaret with ravioli stuffed with mushrooms, and slices of carrots and radish. Superb! No room for dessert but everything looked enticing."

    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Impeccable service, perfectly timed delivery and a wine list to suit all tastes. The lobster salad is a meal in itself. The Moules et Frites expertly prepared. Now, the Pain Perdu, for dessert...absolutely fantastic. Merci."

  • "This restaurant is very consistent in serving excellent french food. The grilled calamari and braised short ribs were very good. Their famous "French Toast" is a must for desert. It does tend to get a little loud in the restaurant from all the excited diners enjoying their great meals."

  • "We really enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Leméac! The last anniversary before our baby is due...The athmosphere was very pleasant - You can hear the music yet it wasn't too loud so we were able to carry on a conversation. The service was great with very friendly and knowledgable wait staff. The Food was amazing! We really enjoyed it!! The dessert is a must! They all looked amazing, but the French toast "pain perdu" with caramel maple serup and dulce de lece ice creme was to die for!!! Generally a great experience with delicious food! We'll def be back!!"

  • "My friend and I ate there during a brief trip to Montreal. The food and the service were lovely. My friend had the hanger steak and I made a meal out of four appetizers. I had the gazpacho, roasted calamari, vegetable tian, and salmon tartar. The only disappointment was the salmon. The fish was sweet and perfectly fresh but it was a one note dish. It was a delicious note but I needed some kind of contrast -- be it in taste or texture. The lemon curd tart was devine."

  • "Lively atmosphere but not too loud. We were there for the late dinner at 10:30 which is a great value at $25 for appetizer and entree. The service was attentive and efficient. The food was excellent."

  • "We were at Lemeac on Saturday June 14 ,2014. Though we had a reservation, our table was small with a view of the wall. The appetizers were the best part of the deal and certainly tasty. Our server left to go on break and we waited quite a long time to receive our bill. While we were waiting, one of the people on the table next to us got his meal spilled on top of him. Shortly after that, we heard a crash of glasses breaking in the kitchen area."

  • "The service and food was good in general. The duck confit was too dry."

  • "Had an absolutely lovely lunch here on a visit to Montreal. Chevre croustillant and smoked salmon salad were impeccable as were my daughter's ravioli aux champignons and salad with grilled shrimp. Beautiful presentation and attentive service. Glasses of wine were perfect. Looking forward to returning for dinner."

  • "Appetizers (salmon tartare and escargot) inventive and very enjoyable. Filet mignon cooked to perfection. Found the cod entree excessively salty, though accompanying fennel mash was fantastic. Adequate service."

  • "The after 10pm menu is super great deal! The food was delicious. Highly recommend the French Toast."

  • "I love Lemeac, everything about it, including the noise which can be over-powering. Hands down it is the best bistro in town, with a way better, more varied menu than L'Expresse and alas Laloux, my previous fave, is now but a pale imitation of its once glorious self. The best calamari dish in town for an entree and Boudin noire with celeriac, plus all the usual suspects; the $25 menu late night menu is still a treat and the terrace is lovely. I even like the washrooms."

  • "I take my 95 year old mother-in-law for a special treat for Sunday brunch. I alway have the omelette because no matter how hard I try I can't make it as light, delicate and flavourful as they do. The fresh OJ is terrific too. I've been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed"

  • "We had a wonderful meal from the « FIN DE SOIRÉE » menu- an excellent value at $25 per person. Service was excellent, options for wine by the glass were great, and the plates were perfectly executed. The restaurant was completely full and guests continued to arrive until our depature near midnight- a testament to the popularity of the place.Unfortunately the room was so loud we could hardly speak to each other; but for that, this would be a 5 star experience. "

  • "I live near Lemeac, so I go there fairly often. I am guaranteed great service and a very good meal. The last time I was there, some patrons were rather inappropriate. Our waiter did his best to fix the situation, and I truly appreciated the effort. Fortunately, my food was great, as always. I'll most likely be back there again sometime this month!"

  • "I have eaten at Lemeac many times over the years and have always found the food, service and ambiance to be great. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case the last time I was there. Hopefully, it was just an off night. "

  • "Food was good but we were expecting more. I took the plat du jour and the truite entrée. Everything was good. Just above average. Nothing extraordinary. Lemeac is living on its reputation and doesn't take the extra step to make sure you'd come back and not try a new address."

  • "Restaurant offrant un menu classique et très bien exécuté. Le décor est agréable et propice aux discussions entre amis. Nous avons profité du spécial après 22h et nous avons trouvé que le rapport qualité/prix était excellent. "
