    We're usually not fans of hotel restaurants, and were having second thoughts when we found out that it was in the Novotel, but so happy we went in! The food was absolutely DELICIOUS, best dinner I've had in a long time. The server was wonderful and the chef totally accomodated my husband's dairy allergy, which is always a plus for us. Will most definately return and recommend.

    We had had several expensive meals and needed a cheaper one. This restaurant in the Novotel was a perfect. It is on a busy restaurant street. Lots of high end cars passed. The service and meals were excellent. It was perfect for us to have a patio dinner.

    We just rolled into Montreal and was looking for dinner options close to our hotel. (turned out the walk was longer than Google maps anticipated!) This turned out to be a perfect spot to dine in. It wasn't overcrowded, so great for the baby we had in tow. The decor was nice, world cup had their area on big sized TVs, and we didnt feel pressured that we were under-dressed in casual clothes seeing that it was just under Novotel, so we fit right in with other potential hotel guests. Service staff was very friendly, despite forgetting my wife's Chicken Florentine - making it on the house was a definitely good call, service of which we seldom see nowadays. Everyone was raving about the rack of lamb, almost worth the drive. Dessert a delight!

    The service was impeccable and friendly. Loved the trio deal with appetizer, main course, and desert, and coffee. Very good value. I had the soup, the veal, and chocolate mousse with coffee at the end. The only complaint I had was the veal was cooked well done, it was dry and tough. The soup wasn't too spicy and to my liking. The mousse was light and creamy and finishing the meal with coffee was just the right touch. It was a good experience despite the toughness of the meat, I'm willing to visit again with friends!

    We went to L'O during Taste MTL and we enjoyed our night. Service was smooth and waiter very nice. The wine suggested was really good. The menu was tasty. We will definitively come back! The only point would be that the bar and restaurant are not separated and we had a group behind us, it was too noise when you want to enjoy a dinner in couple. I will suggest for next time to book a table close to the Windows or in the other side.

    Dined on 11/9/2013
    Often when travelling, especially for dance competitions, you can find yourself having to eat in the hotel restaurant, which is usually overpriced with mediocre food. We found Restaurant L'O to be a delightful change to that. The meal that my husband and I had was outstanding and the Open Table price for it was excellent. The service was gracious yet friendly and we enjoyed our whole experience. We look forward to returning to L'O, even if it isn't during the restaurant week, and trying other menu options.

    This restaurant proves that hotel restaurants can be real gems. It had delicious food, great service & a nice ambiance. Its furnishings are modern & casual so it is perhaps not the choice for a dress-up occasion but the menu was interesting & varied. We had an exceptional dinner here & also a couple of buffet breakfasts which were also superb.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 11/22/2012
    We were visiting Montreal and went to this restaurant because of the location which was near to our hotel and reviews on Opentable. The main drawback to this place is the lack of other diners. This may be because it is situated within a Novotel? The room, decor, service was fine and the service and food all very good but on a Saturday evening you want more than a handful of guests in a large room.

    We went to this restaurant based upon reviews on Open Table and were delighted with our choice. Turns out that we were a bit late as we couldn't find a place to park (welcome to Montreal) but the place was mostly empty, which is a shame because we had a great meal. We don't get good lamb in the midwest, so we both had the rack of lamb. It was terrific - we asked them to hold the thyme as we don't care for that taste, and the chef kindly used a wine sauce instead. Good polonaise potatoes, too. The beers were pricey however - the most we've paid during a week in Canada. Service was nice and the decor is lovely.

    Our party of 4 was very well accomodated - our online reservation was easily placed, then modified to add an extra person, and that Tuesday night, we had a choice of either sitting indoors or outside on the patio. Service let us choose our meal and let us feel free for 4 hours! A great time was had by all! Merci!

    Cannot recommend this restaurant for a pleasant dinner - we left before being served. A loud television and several families screaming running kids created a terrible atmosphere. We would have stayed for the meal, but no one waited on us for 20 minutes - we drank our water left $5 and went across the street to BIS restaurant for a fantastic meal.

    Great lunch! Food was on time, location is super near to our office, and we were served by a very pleasant waiter. Our waiter asked us if there was any special occasion for our lunch - when we quietly mentioned we were celebrating a colleague's promotion, the restaurant prepared a very pretty & delicious dessert dish! Thanks again! Rashmi Sareen

    The restaurant L'O was very accomodating - I reserved for 8 people originally, and because of the ease of online reservations, I was able to change my reservations quickly. The service and waiter & waitress on Friday, Feb 10th were nice, pleasant, brought our food on time, and made a surprise birthday cake for one of our party members! The music was at a low volume, which was great for chatting, and we were not disturbed at all by the other guests. We stayed for 4 hours, and will definately go back!
