Lawrence Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
My brother and I heard lots of good things about Lawrence. We dropped in and had a negroni to start whilst our table was getting ready. Immediately we noticed the quaint ambiance, it was full yet relaxed. Our server was very polite and efficient. A sommelier recommended a nice bottle of montepulciano which we enjoyed with our delicious meals. The food was top notch, so much decadence with the cooking. I had the lamb, he had the short ribs, both exceptional. We ended our meals just the way we wanted to, with an espresso and a sweet. Overall the experience was excellent, we both walked out raving about dinner and giggling about the stories we shared.
I have eaten at this restaurant twice over the span of several years during visits to Montreal. Given the quality of the food, the professionalism of the staff, and the size of the restaurant, I am amazed I can still get a reservation. It seems like this is an overlooked, undervalued spot for those interested in an excellent meal and a relaxing atmosphere.
J'y étais avec des amis français.
Je me suis donnée la peine d'écrire au resto pour les informer de l'anniversaire de mon ami et rime n'a été fait.
Nous avons été très déçu du peu de variété au menu.
Nous sommes sortis au restos avec nos amis pendant tout leur séjour et le Lawrence a été la plus grande déception.
It is a good place to go. But the night I went, I did not feel the warmth in the owners service. And for the second time that I have gone there the food was too salty. I was ready to spend 200$ for my evening. I thought it would be better the second time. I was wrong.
Started out fantastic. The place has a calm energy with fresh and comfortable vibe. My cocktail was great, and the appetizer was A+++++. I'd order the pea toast over and over again. My main plate was meh. Ordered the lamb, and it came with zucchini on top. It had huge chunks that were mushy (no texture). The lamb also overcooked (no red), but had good flavor. I rarely mention dissatisfaction, but I didn't eat the veg after trying three different pieces. I didn't complain, just told the server in case the kitchen might want to know. I had no expectation, and in fact, was about to order dessert. Then I saw the chef go through the garbage to look at my zucchini. The server was friendly, but now had to deliver the news that is how chef wanted the plate. Wait, did I just hear an excuse? I didn't order dessert after that fail. Note: it was just an FYI said out of a courtesy. Maybe I'm wrong in wanting vegetables to have texture and a bit of a bite, but telling me I'm wrong...?
Lawrence stands out because of its eye on great produce, fresh meat n sourced seafood, and a penchant for creativity!
Unpretentious, Hugh quality and original food satisfies your palate, and makes you want to go back again.
Chefs n staff deserve praise for their novel approach to dining.
While polite and courteous, the sommelier lacked knowledge and any response from him was extremely general. Perhaps the clientele does not prioritize it, but the wine list needs improvement. Food was extremely salty and I spent most of the evening picking out chicken skin that was very rubbery in texture and not appealing to the eye as well as palate. On a separate matter, the table of two dining next to us were repeatedly told that they needed to surrender their table. Being told once is fine, not three times. This shows not only a lack of warmth, but lack of organization. Hopefully the above was an isolated incident.
Visiting from out of town and into the hipster neighborhood, we went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a nearby boutique owner. We made a reservation without checking the menu and were shocked to see tongue, brain, and other foods we would not normally seek out. We ordered octopus and lamb and the food and flavors were fabulous. I highly recommend it to you if you like these foods.
The food was excellent, and the servers quite nice, however, we had to wait over an hour for our table in spite of booking well in advance. We were offered drinks and snacks to make up for this, which was appreciated, however, it was difficult to get the attention of the servers while we were waiting, for things like menus, etc
