                                    After taking a $15 cab ride across the town Montreal to try this restaurant, we were greeted with all of the lights dark and the door locked. There was a bankruptcy notice on the door. No one bothered to notify us beforehand. We then had to taxi to another restaurant back across town.

                                    Au Cinquième Péché is offering a fascinating mix of classics and northern France specialties which are not found everywhere. Everything was good from the mise en bouche to the dessert. The choix was sufficient. Service was very efficient and the owners are very kind and helpful.

                                    I was there to celebrate a birthday of a colleague and the service was awesome. When we entered for our 7 PM reservation, I was worried as there was only one other table occupied. However, was I wrong! The service was awesome and the food was great! The menu is interesting but limited. If you have only basic tastes, this is not for you. However, you like different things, this is the place. Two of us had the duck special, one had the fish of the day (cod) and another had a risotto special. All of us loved the food! The interesting dishes was their take our poutine, a Montreal speciality. They added to seal to it. Additionally, they had sweetbreads and some other dishes! Overall, a great night and I would highly recommend it!

                                    Excellent food, expertly prepared, specially the Ris de Veau (sweetbread). Everything we ordered tasted great, (onglet, the fish of the day, beef tongue, gnocchi Poutine, octopus appetizer) and they were all presented with fresh accompaniments and delicate combinations. Service was also excellent. My husband and I went twice to this restaurant and it's becoming one of our favorites in Montreal.

                                    The food was fantastic, but for the adventurous eater. My wife had Ris de Veau (sweetbreads) and I had an grilled octopus with Chirizo appetizer and duck leg main dish.

Cuisine française revisitée aux goûts et saveur du Québec, les frères Lenglet ont une carte divine, tant au niveau des plats que des vins. Moi qui déteste les abats, j'ai pris plaisir à manger du ris de veau et de la cervelle ! À essayer aussi : leur saumon fumé maison qui est un régal ! Vraiment, si vous êtes amateur de bonne cuisine, bien travaillée, il faut absolument essayer le 5e péché !

                                    It was our first time in Montreal and I researched a few restaurants to go eat. I found about Au Cinquième Péché through Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods page and then visited the restaurants page to watch a brief video on their Sweetbreads dish. I was impressed by the preparation and the menu and decided to make it one of the places we had to visit. It was simply fantastic. We are a family of four and our kids 15 and 9 are true foodies, so we knew it would be a great experience for them too. As appetizers we had the grilled veal tongue with deep fried egg. While I am not a fan of mammals meat, i must say this was an absolute hit, the tongue was perfectly cooked, soft and not gamey at all, the egg was cooked to perfection as well. That day one of the appetizer specials was grilled octopus, that had been marinated in a special house vinegar, and served with lentil hummus. Again, perfect texture and flavor, delicious dish. As entrees the younger one and I had the salmon, which was the catch of the day, which was served with a kale puree and capers and lemon gremolata, that alone i could have eaten by the spoonful! My other son had the duck confit which was another special and my husband had the sweetbreads, which i would have loved to try, but was too slow! All in all, a wonderful food experience, would recommend to anyone who appreciates a well prepared dish.

                                    A friend of mine and I have been dining at this restaurant regularly for more than 10 years, first at a previous location and now on St. Denis street. Over all these years the quality and the originality of the food have been incredibly steady. Service is simple, competent and very friendly. The Lenglet brothers, originally from the North of France, have perfectly succeeded in blending French tradition with Quebec ingredients and flavours. Bravo et longue vie au Cinquième Péché!

                                    We had an amazing time here for a girls' night out in Montreal. The food was incredible and the waiter (and owner) took to the time to explain everything on the menu and he got us excited about each dish. When the food came it was incredible. We all loved the apps and entrees we ordered, and the wine was excellent, too. I could not recommend this place more!

                                    Food was reasonable. One dish out of 3 was very good. The starter, some duck prepared in some way was frankly a bit chemical. The main course: catch of the day was great, fabulous. The dessert... hum, not very fresh. My host had the riz de veau as a main course and really enjoyed it. The portion was large for a sweet bread. The wine was very interesting. We had some of the rosee and it was unusual and delicious testing.

                                    This was our first night out with my wife since we arrived in Montréal and I have to say this place was just the right place to start. The food was just very good, and the wine too !!! We had a very nice time there and we definitely recommend this place to anyone who want to have a nice diner. Nevertheless, I found the service a little bit slow, so we spent in the restaurant nearly 2 and 1/2 hour. We weren't in a hurry so it did not really affect us.

The veloute mushroom soup was simply divine, and chocolate dessert decadent. Our waiter provided top notch service with a friendly smile. Highly recommend this restaurant.

                                    I booked this restaurant after having found it searching for French cuisine participating in MTL a Table. It's a great find for me because it's right in my neighbourhood! I took my mother who was visiting from Ontario, and we had the Mtl a Table menu, taking one of everything offered. It was exceptional food. I especially loved the mackerel with squid ink brioche. It was smoky and divine. The cocktails were great too. We had a vodka based cocktail with Lemoncello and soda and mint. Ambiance was dim and the lighting was flattering. I had a really fun time. It's not in my budget for all the time, but for a special little occasion, it was perfect. Thanks.

Bon service, un peu chaotique en début de soirée, mais c'est compréhensible comme c'était occupé (dernière soirée de Mtl à table). Dessert (rocher choco-foie gras) très original. Un peu trop bruyant comme ambiance par contre. Je l'ai recommandé à amis et collègues.

                                    It used to be my favorite bistro for years. The old days on Mont Royal were the best but it was still serving good and creative food after moving to its new location on st denis few years ago. My last visit left me with some disappointment; the chef does not seem to be creative anymore and it's a pity for a bistro where you expect culinary novelty. I used to love his desert creations but my last visit I was really not impressed with Ok deserts (an average Paris - Brest and a carrot cake on the menu for 9$ each..). Anyhow I still think that the chef is capable of delivering much better creations.more varieties are needed on the menu. Can probably give him one more chance before final deciding not to come back (a decision some of friends took

                                    Seal poutine, calf brains among other choices. We chose more traditional fare and it was all very good. Attentive service and with very friendly staff. Wine list is exclusively French selections which is somewhat of a disappointment but overall of good evening was had by all of our party.

                                    We really enjoyed this restaurant. it was intimate, yet friendly. The noise level was moderates so we could have a conversation without shouting. The oyster appetizer is a must- tender pieces of oyster with mesclun and white bean purée. a generous delicious portion. I had the best sweetbreads I've ever had- tender, crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside. my husband opted for the equally delicious beef dish. Both were presented and prepared with delicate flavours. Service was efficient and friendly. Did not have dessert. Will leave room next time we visit.

                                    ce resto offre une ambiance chaleureuse, un service attentif et soigné (pas du tout guindé), un choix distinctif de vins au verre à prix très raisonnables et des plats équilibrés et raffinés. J'aurais toutefois apprécié un accompagnement de légumes plus varié et différent d'un plat à l'autre. Mais dans l'ensemble, mon invité et moi avons absolument aimé notre expérience de souper au 5e Péché.

                                    The best octopus I've ever eaten, although it made me angry about all other octopus I'd eaten previously. Great food overall.

                                    In a fun, young neighborhood with fun, young staff and other clients. Quite refreshing for us older folks! Interesting take on old classics (seal meat and sweet potatoes for the poutine). Would definitely return.

                                    The food was fabulous (the best sweetbread I have ever had). Excellent service. Highly recommended.

                                    It's not every restaurant that offers pan seared seal. Highly imaginative cooking in an unpretentious atmosphere. Tres bien.

                                    We went for dinner for my son's 25th birthday and as usual it was awesome. I had the special, duck yummmmmm, my daughter had beef and my son had sweetbread. The staff were wonderful and brought my son a dessert with a sparkler. If you've never been try the Poutine with seal meat - it is divine !!!

                                    Au Cinquième Péché est exceptionnel ! La nourriture est exquise et recherchée, le service est impeccable. Le choix des vins est judicieux et les conseils de notre serveur étaient parfaits. Il n'y avait pas de plats végétariens sur la carte et malgré cela ils nous ont fait des gnocchis aux légumes sans problèmes. Nous y retournerons c'est certain.

                                    We were there on a Saturday night. The place was busy but the service outstanding. The waiter (one of the owner took time to refill the wine and talk with us. The food was excellent. The wine selection very good. Next time in Montreal we will return
