Le Chien Fumant est un resto prisé par les restaurateurs, les oiseaux de nuits, les curieux et les bons vivants de la ville qui ne disent jamais non à une assiette qui surprend, des produits frais et cultivés localement, des cocktails étonnants, des brunchs réconfortants et une carte de vins distinctive. Bref, un restaurant mordant, mais facile à apprivoiser.

Délicieux, varié, on en a définitivement pour notre argent
J’ai trouvé le service un peu à pression alors que personne n’attendait dans la porte. Le tir a heureusement été rectifié en cours de soirée!
On reviendra certainement.

C’est notre deuxième visite et on adore! La nourriture est savoureuse et le service à été excellent! Le seul hic, nous avions la table que pour 2 heures, on comprends le principe, vous avez peu d’espace mais on serait resté 20 minutes de plus pour un café. Et nous n’avions pas vu ça lors de la réservation.

This place is very small. A therapist least 1/3rd of the seating is bar seating. Which is not exactly romantic! We went for our anniversary, I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time it would be seats at the bar as I would have selected a better restaurant.
We had two starters and two mains. The octopus was interesting and delicious. The tartare tasted like three days worth of sodium in one bowl. And it didn’t come with any kind of crackers or bread to scoop it with. The lamb main was pretty good, acceptable. The veal chop was incredibly rich and heavy and greasy. Also bland.
Cocktail list was uninspiring.
Staff were friendly enough and helpful.
I wouldn’t strenuously object to eating here again, but I wouldn’t seek it out by any means.

Le menu est écrit très petit sur l’ardoise, impossible pour nous de lire d’où nous étions assis. La serveuse n’a jamais offert de nous expliquer le menu, nous avons dû nous lever, prendre une photo et zoomer celle-ci pour voir. Quand nous lui avons mentionné, elle a simplement dit que c’était à cause de plusieurs changements et qu’elle ne pouvait rien faire pour nous. La serveuse n’était pas la plus accueillante. Les saveurs de nos repas étaient mal équilibrées.

J’adore le chien fumant! Les plats sont recherchés, les aliments de qualité. Le service était un peu plus expéditif qu’à lhabitude mais professionnel et sympathique. Beaucoup de bruit quand nous y sommes allés. Le vin était délicieux, les cocktails aussi. J’y retournerai encore et encore! 😊

La nourriture est excellente. Par contre, la musique est forte et les tables sont très rapprochées. Ce n’est pas un restaurant idéal pour un tête à tête romantique. Pour un souper entre amis, c’est bien parfait. Le service est excellent. Le serveur explique bien le menu et notre verre d’eau et de vin n’a jamais été vide.

Service at Le Chien Fumant is friendly and food is delivered briskly. Note: You will be told upon entering how long you have the table, and that does not sit well with some. The Fried Spinach Salad topped with barbecued peanuts was pure genius! However, the combination of Sirloin Steak with Lentils and Escargot was not a felicitous one... my companion’s Pork Filet with Parsnip Purée was more to my liking. We were not impressed with the miniature dessert assortment... It is possible that this is a very good restaurant for cocktails, appetizers, and main dishes, but dessert should be taken elsewhere in Plateau-Mont-Royal.

First time, we had a hard time finding a drinks that they actually had. They had no cranberry or apple juice, no amaretto, it was hard to find something they had except with the cocktail list they had. We tried 2 of them. 1 was ok the other horrible. We were rush to order, couldn’t order entrées and main course separated. It had to be done all at once as per what the server said. We had 3 entrees, Chinatown calamars (by far the best!!!) classic beef tartar and grilled octopus. Both of those weren’t great.
We had the main course shortly after, no time to digest a bit of the entrees. As the menu wasn’t the same as the web one, I was disappointed that the course that I wanted wasn’t on the menu. Ordered steak plate and giant shrimp and sausage. The steak was disappointing as there was 3 little piece sourrounded with so much lentils. Shrimp wasn’t so bad but the sausages so small and thin the grits was good.
We had desert a plate mixed of 5 small ones. Was very small but ok. 200$ bill.
Overall wouldn’t go back.

Incredible food, save for a less than par dessert, but the service brought down by the experience. Upon being seated, we were greated by our server immediately telling the time we had to leave. The entire experience was a true roller coaster between loving our meal, and being confronted by our surly server.
While the food is great, there are many comparable restaurants with employees who care.

It was our second time there.
Very disappointing ! The service was rushed as our waiter was standing there waiting for me to take the last bite of my appetizer so he could grab my plate before I could even swallow. The food was ok.
The bill was not cheap at all. Not worth our hard earned $$.

A truly excellent and original steak tartare ('Korean style'). Cheese plate would merit perhaps some small condiments or option to have two different small pieces for same price.

I went for dinner with my girlfriend. We found the service staff snotty, from the guy who greeted us at the door to the bartender, as we were seated at the bar. I actually felt uncomfortable due to the attitude coming off this guy.
The food was just average. I ordered the steak the pancake (not sure the correct word for this) under the dish was next to impossible to cut through.
Bottom line wouldn’t return or recommend this place due to uppity staff. Went to Nora Gray the night before and it was excellent go there instead!

It was an awesome experience and we had a perfect evening. All four of us went for the « menu dégustation » and none regretted. The food was in abundance for all and the mix of flavours was incredible. We got to taste a bit of everything on the menu. Truly a must go to place.
