The restaurant is very intimate and cosy. Authentic cuisine fron Lyon (one of my favorites). Great food and service. Reasonably priced for the quality. I had the quenelles and my partner the blood sausage, we both enjoyed our meals and will be back to explore the rest of the menu.

Chef prepared a prix fixe menu selection of three tantalizing offerings at excellent value. A nice wine list provided a variety of French wines by the glass to pair with each course as well as price by bottle options. I chose a Bordeaux and was surprised by a petit appetizer trio to delight the pallet. The first course was a salad verde or soup de jour. I chose the the lentil soup which was dressed with a dollop of Creme Fraiche and a sprinkling of fresh herbs, delicious! The Main course options includes fish, beef and a pork sausage and legume salad. I chose the fish which was a pan seared monkfish drizzled in a lemon butter caper sauce, accompanied by a medley of perfectly prepared broccoli, bok choy, carrots and parsnips. Incredible! The wine I paired was a Louis Latour Chardonnay which was perfect. Classic French dessert options including Creme Brûlée followed. The meal was lovely!

Absolutely delightful dinner.
Very traditional French cooking done very well and served with pride and care.
Small place. Not flashy or "scenery" I loved it!

I’m tempted to tell folks not to go here-
It would ruin it if “discovered.”
Amazing find -the best meal we had in Montreal.
Warm hospitality, delicious food, great value .
If we return to Montreal we will definitely eat here again

We were surprised it wasn’t busier on a Saturday night. Two tables of eight and two tables of two. Our server Veronique was absolutely terrific.

Je me suis sentie à Lyon le temps d'une soirée sur une terrasse en arrière cour très conviviale ! L'œuf en meurette était très bon, j'ai juste été quelque peu déçue par les quenelles dont la sauce Nantua n'avait pas tout le goût qu'elle aurait dû avoir mais le Morgon Château Pizay m'a fait oublié ça ! À refaire sans hésiter !

We arrived very early for our reservation but they seated us quickly. The service was very pleasant. The food was delicious without being pretentious. The wine selection was very good. The location was very easy to get to from the Metro, so this is a very nice option for people from out of town. I would go again next time I visit the area.

We are so lucky to have so many great restaurants in Montreal... and especially in our neighbourhood. Comptoir Lyonnais is one of our favourites. Prices are reasonable and meals are always delicious. We are never rushed and the place is never too busy to provide warm and efficient service. We'll be back.

We want for lunch and it was good, each meal had something special. Not cheap but not too expensive too. If you go there, take your time, enjoy the fireplace and the view of the Jacques-Cartier bridge by night.

The restaurant wasn't very busy. We diners were spread around the room and it made for a more intimate experience. There was a gorgeous fire and each table had a blanket in case it got chilly. I had the table d'hôte of a green salad, salmon with risotto and a brownie. The entire meal/ambiance was relaxed and friendly. I want to go back

A priceless gem - unassumingly and quietly competent - a classic bistro with excellent service, food, and drink. Veronique (one half of the husband-wife ownership team) masterfully served all of the lunch diners without a hint of a faux pas, while her husband plated elegantly simple yet masterful meals for all. The private selection of wines were perfectly suited for the lunch menu. Perfect for a tête-à-tête, lunch or dinner with friends, or date night with your spouse/partner.
