Seafood
Chez Delmo first opened in 1934 just up the street from where it is now. Back then it had 3 floors; a seafood restaurant on the main floor, a gaming house on the 2nd and brothel on the 3rd. Today, the restaurant remains in hommage to the original owners Delisle and Morissette (Delmo).

Our menu has changed little over the past 80 years. Quality fish and seafood prepared and served in a traditional way. The house specialty is the Dover sole meunière. Our chefs take great pride in this dish, which used to be de-boned table-side, but now done just before serving. Our lobster bisque takes 2 days to create and the classic cream of tomato remains virtually unchanged for decades. We have stayed true to cuisine classique, resisting the popular tide of nouvelle cuisine. Traditionally prepared quality seafood; unadorned and unembellished.

Hubby and I visited his auntie and went for dinner to Chez Delmo. Has cocktails, appetizer, main course, wine, dessert, and coffees. We each had different items and all were fantastic. Excellent food quality, perfectly cooked, and well presented. Our server Jacob was friendly and very knowledgeable in helping us select wine. Will definitely return!

Greeting on arrival was welcoming. Service was very attentive . Food was very good. Found wine pricing a little expensive. Noise level was high. Need some sound reduction alterations..

It is like coming home to be greeted by Benoit and his always competent and charming servers. In this case we had Jacob who looked after us perfectly and unobtrusively. We hope we are able to get back in March. It is always one of the highlights of every trip to Montreal.

By far the best seafood pasta i've ever had. Generous chunks of scallops, lobster and shrimps, homemade pasta and lobster sauce. The service is on point. The bartender makes an amazing old fashioned. Great restaurant!

Actually got served by a first day server with no backup in a restaurant that seemed to be over staffed. Waited 15 minutes for water glasses to get filled. Drinks took forever and wasn’t checked on until our last bites were on our forks. I blame the Managment as much as the server. Terrible experience.

The prices make it so that this place can not be put on my regular rotation. Over $300 tax and tip for two soups, two lobsters one dessert, two drinks and one glass of wine. The price all in should have been south of $250. The lobster was a bit over done. The tomato soup was a step or two above Campbells, it did not live up to it's hype at all. Very nice place for a special occasion, but would not be my first choice for sea food on a regular basis. Service was good.

A perfect dinner. The 1938 tomato soup best I have ever had. Carpaccio, salmon, fish & chips all perfect. Quebec Maple syrup/white cake and ice cream delicious. And the owner, Benoit, and his son, William, both professional and charming.

On our first trip to beautiful Montreal, we had a chance encounter with a local who recommended Chez Delmo. We are so happy we followed his advice! The restaurant is romantic and charming with the best Oysters Mornay we have ever had! The food is exceptional and the service outstanding. Our waiter was the owner’s son, whose knowledge and charm made our visit even more memorable. Highly recommend!

Chez Delmo est un restaurant sûr, toujours fidèle à lui-même.
C'est définitivement un endroit fort agréable pour une rencontre d'affaires et une dégustation de plats de poisson de qualité hors norme.

Décevant le prix beaucoup trop élevé pour la qualité du repas.Les portions sont généreuses mais peu de saveur.Nous nous attendions à des sauces un peu hors de l’ordinaire Un repas que nous aurions pu faire facilement à la maison.
