About Chez Delmo

Situated in Old Montreal and steps away from the Old Port, this French restaurant established in 1932 makes you feel like you’re at sea savoring the most delicious treasures of the blue waters of the river and ocean. Specializing in fish and seafood, Chez Delmo serves a delicious meal with fresh ingredients. At Chez Delmo, you can choose from a large variety of fish: Dover sole, salmon, cod, sea-bass, halibut, and many more prepared the French way. This means being served in delicious sauces and delicate spices that bring out the fish’s natural flavors without masking them. You may also opt for scallops, shrimp and lobster. Chez Delmo also offers an à la carte dinner and lunch menu. The restaurant's is large and open-aired with a granite bar, the color of which perfectly matches the off-white walls. The mood is very bright thanks to large windows which bathe the high-ceilings of the dining room with light and which offer a beautiful view of the charming Old Montreal atmosphere.

Un endroit superbe dans le Vieux-Montréal pour déguster une crème de tomates ou une soupe de poissons, des poissons fraos, des huitres fraîches, le homard Thermidor ou Newburg préparé de façon classique ainsi qu'un baba au rhum baptisé avec de l'excellent rhum agricole. Sincèrement, nous avons passé une soirée agréable en se régalant.

it was nice to come back after a few months and be greeted as one of the regulars. As usual, fresh fish, done right. If you don't know your fish, you might not get it: they fly in the good stuff and prepare it the old fashioned way. There is a cost to this. You appreciate it of you don't. i happen to like the fact that the fish is done plain jane style. Keep it up, Delmo

I had the seafood pasta: great big scallops, lots of lobster, clams, shrimps. A generous plate of perfectly cooked fresh seafood. I started with a martini, the cocktails are also very generous 4 oz-plus. The tomato soup is surprisingly good.

The first time was a better experience business meal in June 21 or 22 2017 . This is why I decided to come back with my wife and friends. This Saturday it was below my inspection compare the first time. Yes it is expensive I don't care when it is very good. But last Saturday
is was WOW like the first time.

to say the true I won't come back at your place for a third time , because first the portion are to small and the pricing was too high with the service $532.20 for the level of quality.

I didn't penalize the waiter i gave tip $69.42 for a meal $462.78 = Total $532.20
For me the second time it was too expensive experience for the quality i got and the quantity

Sorry I rather say it was wonderful experience , but not last Saturday it wasn't a good one.

You want the true this is my opinion .

My wife and I ate at Chez Delmo last week prior to the Centaur theater. Service was attentive, the wine list interesting, and the menu classic. My meal was extremely good -delicious fish soup with all the extras followed by excellent fish & chips - minimal breading and perfectly cooked fish. Not cheap but good value for the such high quality fish.

This restaurant is a must do in Old Montreal. We wanted a restaurant close to the Westin Montreal. This was a couple of blocks away. Upon arrival we were greeted by the very personable host who gave us a choice of tables for quiet romantic or middle of restaurant with a view of the action. Paul was our server and he was very attentive but not intrusive. Paul was very knowledgeable and helpful as we navigated the menu full of wonderful seafood choices. We decided on an endive salad which was fresh and crisp with a wonderful vinegrette dressing. For an entree we chose the Dover Sole and it was superb. My ding companion has a gluten allergy so the chef changed the preparation for him to accommodate and his was perfect as well. The standard prep served in meunière was moist and delicious. I could go back tomorrow for a total repeat dinner. For dessert, we chose a crime brûlée and it did not disappoint. Paul offered wine pairings to complement the food and that just added to the experience. Definitely a place to come back to.

Très bon restaurant. Le service est au top. La nourriture est savoureuse et bien présentée. Le goût, qualité et la fraîcheur des fruits de mer sont excellents. J'ai été avec ma copine et je dirais que c'est l'un des meilleurs restaurants qu'on a été jusqu'à présent.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on October 8, 2017

Chez Delmo was on our recommended restaurant list from our hotel. The description said essentially that it was a great seafood place; we love seafood so seemed like a no brained. Easy. The ambiance, as it turned out, was the best thing I can say about the place. The waitress was friendly enough but we felt she tried to upsell every chance she had. We asked for 9 oysters, she said what? 12? I asked for a wine recommendation and she picked the most expensive by the glass. Same thing happened when my husband asked about the entrees and again she selected the most expensive dish. All of this turned us off and we haven’t had our food yet. I ordered seafood shell—which was essentially mash with some over cooked scallops and shrimps—for CAD 44. Not worth it. If you’re going to charge me, give me good food, that was not the case with Chez Delmo. The biggest disappointment meal wise on our 6 day trip. For the money, I could recommend all of the other restaurants I tried, and loved, and still save you a few bucks.

This restaurant is crazily overpriced and living on the fact that it has been around for a long time. The prices are extremely high and the quality of the food is average. A seafood platter is $135.00 canadian! I did not select that meal.

Chez Delmo was the perfect spot for my wife and I to dine on our last day in Montréal. The service was incredible, we were able to sample Quebec local cheeses and wines, and the seafood was fresh. I highly reccommend the Coquille de fruits de mer. It was truly on of the finest meals I've ever had. I also reccommend the salmon tare tare. The wait staff were quite accomodating and knowledgable about their meals, wines, and more importantly, ingredients.

A wonderful experience from beginning to end! Perfect Malpeque oysters, delicious lobster chowder. We both ordered the Coquille aux Fruits de Mer and it was superb - lots of seafood in a rich béchamel type sauce, gratinée with plenty of cheese. The base was a small amount of creamy mashed potatoes.
Wine selected was Puilly Fuissé.
With mentioning are the large murals and art works by Carlito Dalceggio, which add flair, colour, and a happy ambience to the restaurant.
The host and our server were exemplary.
Thanks for a terrific evening in Montréal.

We had an octopus appetizer bit tough but good seasoning. The entrees were amazing especially the Waleye so delicious. Though only in town for three nights considered going back the next night ( wish I did) Service a bit slow we waited very low for cocktails ordered before dinner and came after we finished appetizers. The owner manager was extremely apologetic and bought us the round of drinks. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
