Le maître d'hôtel était tellement désagréable que nous sommes partis avant même d'avoir fait notre choix de repas.... Nous avons traversé la rue et avons eu une bien meilleure expérience chez le compétiteur ! Ce fut un vilain plaisir de constater que le resto est demeuré vide ce soir là. Il y a beaucoup de bons restos à Montréal, Chez Lévèque ne mérite pas de vous recevoir.

Excellent restaurant and amazing food I just personally didn’t like the religious music in the bathroom , not a place for it, and I had ordered a beat and goat cheese salade and I got it without the beats and had to ask for them. But all an all it was great experience.

Chez Levesque is the restaurant that has seen many of our family celebrations over the past 5 years because we love it, the food, the service and the ambiance. This time, for the first time, we were disappointed. They didn’t have 3 of the wines we wanted to select, our waiter gave a bit of attitude, was obviously new at his role, made a major mistake on the bill, and at one point walked away with our bottle of wine although it was only half empty, we had to signal him to bring it back. The food was as good as ever except for the tartares, both salmon and beef, which were overly flavoured with mustard and capers. Yes, we will go back because we love Chez Levesque but we sincerely hope that it lives up to our expectations next time.

Nous sommes des habitués. Disons que cette fois-ci n'était pas la meilleure: nous avons dû demander deux fois des glaçons et un verre de Sprite. Le verre n'est jamais arrivé. Une entrée nous a été servie par erreur et un convive a dû attendre alors que les autres étaient déjà servis. Enfin, la cuisine manquait de salade frisée alors qu'on était en début de soirée.

Pour ceux qui cherchent un vrai bistro Parisien autant dans le décor, dans la nourriture française classique que dans le service qui bien qu'exécuté avec professionnalisme, le ton est presque celui du Parisien sec. A voir l'âge de la clientèle on imagine que beaucoup de clients sont réguliers et ce depuis fort longtemps.

Le service est toujours courtois, le personnel est gentil, patient, à l’écoute.
Le homard était exquis, mais j’ai trouvé le prix élevé pour le peu de chair que j’ai mangé.
Un peu bruyant.
Le décor est dépassé, d’une autre époque.
Mais dans l’ensemble, ce fut une belle expérience. Comme d’habitude...

Overall, our favorite meal during this trip to Montreal. We went last year and chose to return.
As said, the food was excellent. However, the service was somewhat lacking. The wait staff was obviously busy but we had better service last year and it was the same holiday weekend but Friday, not Sunday night. I dont know if they were short staffed. Our waiter was always running.
Dont skip the lobster bisque
Best restaurant bread.
We loved our entrees, all varied
The fries were mediocre and can be left out.
We ordered the nougat dessert after overhearing the women at the next table rave about it. I guess if you like nougat, it would be a very good dessert but was not our favorite. The creme brulee was better received.
We will be back there on our next visit
This was my 5th Montreal weekend trip with these friends and the 4th during Victoria Day weekend, a time that seems to work out well for us. I asked my friend if they want to visit a different city next year and the answer was no, we want to go back to Chez Leveque

Les huîtres n’étaient pas à la hauteur. J’avais pourtant demandé l’avis de notre serveur. Il a suggéré un plateau des 4 variétés au menu. Il aurait du me suggérer fortement les huîtres des Îles de la Madeleine, elles étaient nettement meilleures, plus dodues. Les trois autres variétés , particulièrement les françaises étaient vraiment trop petites...cela ne valait pas la peine...
Quant au serveur, il n’était pas vraiment sympathique...et il était dérangeant. Un vrai garçon français des années 70 à Paris...
Notre met principal était délicieux, quenelles et ris.
Le maître d’hotel est charmant.

I love after 9PM concept at this amazing French restaurant. You get an appetizer and main course from their after 9 menu for $25 per person. The food was excellent and that was corroborated by my boyfriend who comes from Lyon France! I am coming back again for sure!

Oyez, oyez! Chez Lévêque a drôlement bien modernisé son ardoise! Tout en conservant les plats brasserie qui ont bâti sa réputation, ses plats du jour ont pris un coup de jeunesse et d’audace, autant visuellement que gustativement! À essayer absolument pour un enchantement garanti.

I take my 100 year old mother-in-law out to a swanky lunch every four to six weeks.

Out favourite place for lunch on a weekday is Chez Levesque.

I usually have the foie de veau with hareng fume as a starter.

Efficient service, great coffee.

The restaurant has the complete feel of a Paris bistro.

Roll the dice. Whatever your order, you won’t be disappointed. This is as authentic as it gets. We went for the Sunday morning Devine Brunch.

There is Valet parking for a reasonable fee. During our seating a large group of parents and kids came into the restaurant. I had three kids of my own with us. I expected the volume to go up significantly and ruin an otherwise perfect dining experience.

The group was shuttled upstairs and we heard nothing. Apparently Levesque is a “kids birthday party” destination.
Don’t let this deter you from a quiet dining experience.

Waiters (and assistants) are about as professional as one would expect.

We will definitely return.
