Chez Delmo first opened in 1934. Today, the restaurant remains in hommage to the original owners Delisle and Morissette (Delmo) and continues to be a favourite for regulars and visitors alike.
Just minutes away from the Notre Dame Basilica in the Old Port, Chez Delmo continues to serve fresh and premium quality seafood prepared in a traditional French style combined with a modern flair. The house specialty is the Dover Sole meunière and the classic tomato cream soup which have been virtually unchanged for decades.

    Neat and dedicated service with attention to detail under a very polite and courteous waiting. Scrumptious menu and a sophisticated list of wines. París meets Montreal in this place. One of the most epic memories during my visit to beautiful Montreal.

    The last time I was at the time hounoured establishment was 20 years ago. I went back for the Dover sole which is a hard item to find at most seafood restaurants. The last time I had it, it was covered in bread crumbs and fried like a schnitzel. This time it was not as crispy but still very tasty. It came with a side of smooth mashed potatoes and a few but ample amount of veg. My companion had fish and chips and raved about the freshness of the cod. The wine list was good. The coffee was strong but not bitter. The room as been updated and is charming. The noise level was high which usually means people are having a good time. The washrooms were clean and well appointed.

    The taste and quantity of the food is not worth the price marked. We ordered several cocktails, an entree of calamari, two poached salmon, creole crab and salmon tartare. The calamari was very oily to the point the crust was falling off. The portion was extremely small for the price. The poached salmon was overcooked. The creole crab was okay, but nothing special. Overall, the main dishes lacked flavour. It was nothing outstanding, taste was very mediocre. The service was slow. There was only one waiter for the whole restaurant. The one thing I find pleasing would be their cocktail drinks.

    Best seafood restaurant in Montreal. Seafood pasta is amazing. Their Dover sole is served classic meuniere and is the best i've had anywhere. The cocktails are very generous (thank you William) Martinis are 6 oz +. Classic neighborhood joint full of regulars.Well choreographed, perfectly timed service, and we did not feel rushed. The food is absolutely amazing, expensive but top quality. It's a family owned restaurant, and the interactions between the owners and their children who work there make the atmosphere very special. Service is top notch. Can't wait to go back! Strongly recommend.

    My wife and I don't make it out on dates much since we have kids so it was nice to go someplace quiet and enjoy ourselves. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. The valet parking was a nice add on which we took advantage of as well.

    Excellent meal and service. When we made reservations, we indicated we were celebrating a birthday. If you don't do anything to acknowledge or celebrate a life event, then why ask?
    Chez DelmoResponded on December 28, 2023
    As we do not ask guests if they are celebrating, there is an option on the Open Table platform to add notes and tag certain occasions. Our customary acknowledgment for special occasions is at the time of the dessert order. Perhaps you opted out of this part of your meal?

Le seul regret que j'ai eu cette fois ci c'est de ne pas avoir pu manger les moules que j'attends depuis des mois. Elles sont victimes de leur succès. Allez-y vous ne serez pas déçus!

    Absolutely lovely time. We went for my father in laws birthday. They paired a lovely brandy with his dessert. It was an amazing meal. My table ordered the clam chowder, mussels and fries, endive salad, walleye, and the salmon. Everything was absolutely lovely, cooked perfectly. The waitstaff was wonderful and made very good (strong) cocktails. Would go again.
