The service was very attentive and timely and all the courses we selected were very tasty. The sommelier was knowledgeable and helpful in making our selection from an abundant list.

It was our first time at Le Local, we enjoyed it and will try it again for sure.
The food was excellent and the menu offered a good variety. They have a great selection of wines for all budget. the service was very professionnal. We liked the location and design of the restaurant. Expect to pay $100 per person all included for a 3 service dinner with wine.

Perfect for the food but the wine list is too expensive. Don't want to pay 150$ a bottle to go with a 25$ main course. The list should be revised with More affordable wines.

Food was absolutely great and selected wine (by the glass) was excellent which is not always the case when restaurants are offering a small selection by the glass. Service was really good too. It's been some time since my last visit but now, just can't wait to go back!

A friend recommended Le Local and we went to have dinner for our anniversary. The ambience, food and overall vibe was excellent. Can't wait to go back!

Nice spot to invite, host for special occasion or business diner (2 to 6) if in the main dining area. Not recommended for detailed or private conversation as seating is fairly tight quarters, you can easily be overheard.
I like the private room off the side street for group of 6 or more. Much more adapt to nice business discussion or intimate private gathering with a few friends.

We were seated in the bar area and found the atmosphere relaxing and enjoyable. The service was excellent and our evening memorable for a complete package that worked perfectly. Highlights were the Sucre et Sale dessert and the Pacific Black Cod. Both were presented beautifully and the tastes impeccably designed. We will return! Merci.

Menu is Montreal bistro style. Food was delicious and service was really good.

Read the reviews- both good and bad- before deciding on this place. So glad we did. The food and service was superb. We had a main course and dessert. Main courses were chef's specials of the day- black cod and Guinea fowl. Both courses were wonderfully presented on the plates. The wine selection was assisted by a knowledgeable staff person. His choice was great. The restaurant might seem a little out of the way but it was an easy walk from the Delta Hotel or a short taxi ride.

Super ambiance, beau resto, très bon service. Le seul bémole, un peu l'impression de payer pour le nom. Disons que c'était très bon, mais un peu cher.

Food was good but menu selections were limited. Food was either standard fair or too out there. Very pricey wine list.

Nourriture excellente, principalement le dessert pot de caramel à la fleur de sel. Toutefois, service trop lent pour un lunch de semaine qui a duré 2 heures.

Trés bon restaurant aussi bien pour le lunch qu'en soirée. Pour moi l'une des meilleures tables de Montreal, que je classerai parmi les 5 meilleures. Entrées variées et toutes trés réussies, Légumes excellents, viande exquise, portions équilibrées, présentation raffinée sans prétention.

We found "Le Local" through "Montreal a Table" restaurant week, and we are mad at ourselves for not finding it earlier. Every dish was excellent. An extensive wine list that covered all ranges, and a really neat décor with an open kitchen. The real knock out though was the service - it is 100% a team approach, and every server who came to our table was first rate. We will definitely visit again!

J'adore Le Local. La table d'hôte n'avait que 2 choix. Connaissant ce restaurant ils auraient pu faire mieux. L'atmosphère est très jeune professionnel(le). C'est très IN!!! J'y ai déjà fêté mes enfants et ceux de ma conjointe et ils ont adoré. Je le recommande fortement.

We chose Le Local to leave an impression on our globe-trotting good friends who are very knowledgeable in wines and good food.
Their requests for a wine from their far-away homeland and differing epicurean preferences were met beyond their expectations and we were very glad to have selected Le Local to add to their long-lasting memories of this short return visit to our city.

Dinner at Le Local was a great start to our weekend in Montreal! The place has a nice vibe and good energy without being loud and rushed. Food was fresh, interesting and artistically presented, and wine suggestions offered by a friendly, knowledgeable server enhanced each dish. We had carpaccio, and gravlax to start; papardelle with venison ragout, and black cod with honey/soy glaze for main course; and delightful vanilla pears for dessert...all excellent. Kitchen staff look like they love their jobs and it shows in the food. Will definitely go again next time we visit Montreal.

A great find. Amazing food, incredible ambiance and amazing service. The wine list is very comprehensive with options for any budget. The goat cheese and beat salad was the best salad we have ever had. I wanted to lick the plate! For mains, we had Beef Chuck, Arctic Char and Black cod. All were just to die for. We tasted each other's and couldn't decide which we liked more. The server was very knowledgeable, friendly and understanding of my friends gluten allergy. Just an overall amazing dining experience.

I had been to the Local when it first opened and the menu was imaginative, the food was good and the atmosphere was great.
This time around was a real dissapointment! Neither the food or presentation was inspiring. The portions seem to have grown but we left most of the food in our plate. If you are in the area you are much better off at Holders!

Take someone special or go with your friends. You will not regret it.

My boyfriend and I went to the Local friday night, and it was very nice. It was for his birthday, this restaurant is not the most romantic one but it was ok. The food was very good (the foie gras with a date square was quite weird and very rich though). The place and the service are great ! The peach desert is awesome.

Absolutely loved this spot. Group of 6 and everyone commented: "best veal dish ever", "top 10 meal", etc. Sad that they were out of the fish special with olive spaetzle so early in the evening, but offered same dish with scallops and it did not disappoint - perfectly crisp sear on the scallops and lovely tender moist centres. The carnivores in our group were ga ga about the veal special and short ribs, and gave many thumbs up. Artfully presented dishes with little unexpected twists, such as the beet and goat cheese salad with crisp bacon bits and a croquet poached egg - delish! Excellent value for food quality, compared to other highly rated spots. Service was very attentive for the entire meal. Will be back on next visit to Montreal.

With friendly bar staff willing to mix you just the right drink and electronic music in the background, this is place is energetic and bustling, a perfect place to start a night out. A great variety of tapas and mains to choose from, gave us the opportunity to mix it up between ocean and land options. Would definitely return with a group of friends in tow.
