We try to have our annual family meal every year since this resto opened. Missed only last year due to pandemic (Health authorities closure). Yesterday (as usual) NOT disappointed. Dave (our waiter) was quick & efficient. Would suggest a jazz piano solos for background music. I had the steak-frites Looking forward to next year.......Thanks again.
Comme d'habitude merveilleux
Cher VincentP, Un grand merci de la part de toute notre équipe pour votre recommandation. Meilleurs vœux pour 2022 ! Fede Sanchez Directeur de l'hospitalité

Dear Guest, We are delighted your Christmas dinner was a success. Thank you kindly for your compliments to our service and kitchen. Happy holidays and a wonderful 2022! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Great food, great ambiance, not too noisy, a little pricey.
Dear mahiasito, Thank you very much for your compliments! We do our best to offer some casual dishes on certain days, such as our lunch table d'hôte, our moules frites, and burgers. Please, don't hesitate to visit for lighter meals. All the best and a wonderful 2022 to you and your loved ones! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
A great experience, not only the food is delicious (we had the atlantic salmon, french soup and onglet steak) but the staff was nice, helpful and kind. The ambiance is elegant and inviting. I will say it is a must to spend a nive evening with your couple or to celebrate a special ocassion.
Dear Federico, Not only am I happy we share the same name, but delighted that you had a great time at our restaurant. On behalf of our entire team, thank you kindly for your recommendation. All the best and a wonderful 2022! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Fantastic meal. Went there with my wife and my son visiting from London. Very nice decor. Impeccable service. Sous chef Takashi took the time to bring us at the table a beautiful Seafood plateau which was excellent. Loved the scallop cheviche. We then shared the excellent beef tartare and then had walleye, duck confit and NY steak. All the food was excellent. Finished with crème brulée and profitéroles, again no faults there. Very warm service from Marwa and the sommelier Dave was excellent and very knowledgeable in his recommendations. Definitely an excellent restaurant. We will definitely return on our next trip to Montreal.
Dear Rene, On behalf of Taka, Marwa, Dave and our entire team, thank you kindly for your wonderful review. It means a lot to us to know that we contributed to make your trip more enjoyable. Please, consider us your second home in Montreal . Enjoy the rest of your travels! Happy Holidays! Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
Woman who greeted and sat us was very accommodating and gracious. Service was excellent. Ambiance - the restaurant is actually nicer looking on the inside, then you might guess from outside appearances.
Dear BethC, We are delighted that the book turned out to be better than the "cover"! Our façade is quite historical, but we aim to keep things fresh inside. Thank you for noticing! Happy Holidays! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Loved the food. Had the French onion soup, fish of the day (walleye) and creme Brulee. The truffle mash is to die for. David was a great server. Would definitely go again.
Dear Astrid, On behalf of David and everyone at Pois, thank you kindly for your "magnifique" review. We all look forward to hosting you again. Happy Holidays! Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
Dear NathalieP, Thank you for this "top" review! We look forward to your next visit, Happy Holidays and a delicious New year! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Extraordinary good service and food. A blast back to our days living in Paris. A mix of traditional and contemporary decor and ambience. There was literally nothing the restaurant could have done to improve our evening.
Dear OliverR, On behalf of everyone at Pois, thank you very much for this extraordinary review. It's a great feeling to know we brought back Parisian memories! Happy Holidays and a delicious New Year! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Homemade cavatelli was so flavorful and delicious. Also had Quebec cheese plate that was ample and very good. Niçoise salad was very good and the tuna was perfectly cooked.
Dear Guest, Thank you for your compliments! Reading your description is making me hungry. And I work here! Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2022! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
The crab cake tasted more of potato than crab. The bouillabaisse was flavourful. The seafood cooked just right. The hangar steak was tender and cooked perfectly. The salmon tartare was fresh and light. The down side was limited alcoholic drinks due to SAQ strike. The dessert, profiteroles, was amazing with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Service was attentive and pleasant with our server and the rest of the service team.
Dear CarolineC, Thank you very much for your kind compliments and feedback, and for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We are delighted you had a nice meal and we promise to look into our crab cake. It must be right every time! Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2022! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Très bon restaurant, super service. Je recommande!
Chère Joannie, Un grand merci pour votre belle recommendation. Au grand plaisir de vous revoir. Joyeuses Fêtes et une délicieuse année 2022 ! Fede Sanchez Directeur de l'hospitalité
Menu was limited… not like the past. Drink was not well made. Overall average
Dear Guest, We're sad to read the menu wasn't big enough and your drink wasn't nice. Our menu hasn't changed much in the last 4 years. Are there any particular dishes you missed? Our bartenders take pride in mixing a good drink and we apologize if there was a mistake with yours. Did the waiter or the manager replace it immediately? We guarantee the quality of everything we serve. We wish you would've had a better time, and we also wish you Happy Holidays! Fede Sanchez, Dir. Hospitality
Outstanding service and food. What a fantastic experience.
Dear ElizabethL, All the best to you and your family! Have wonderful Holidays and an awesome 2022! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Great experience. We had the table d'hote for lunch. You do need a reservation. The place was busy but we still got good service. The plate presentations added to the savours. Are only disappointment was the desert, rather ordinary. For a french restaurant, they could do much better. What about a french pastery?
Dear RollandL, We are delighted you had a nice lunch with us. Thank you kindly for all your compliments and feedback. Our lunch dessert changes often. We try to keep it French, but our chefs sometimes take a detour. When you visit us again, you may ask for our regular dessert menu, where you'll find the classics: crème brûlée, profiteroles, tarte amandine, pêche Melba, and more. Happy Holidays! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Un de mes restaurants favoris à Montréal. Le maître d’hôtel Gino été très gentil et nous avons souvent Marion pour le service incroyable… Merci à l’équipe
Cher LucS, De la part de Gino, Marion, et toute l'équipe un grand merci pour vos compliments et pour nous considérer parmi vos restaurants favoris. C'est un privilège. Joyeuses Fêtes ! Fede Sanchez Directeur de l'hospitalité
We went for lunch. The food was as usual excellent. The plating was lovely and just the right amount. The staff and servers are so friendly and welcoming. We all look forward to the next dining experience there. It is one of our favourite places to dine.
Dear LyndaT, Thank you for giving us the best compliment: to be someone's favourite restaurant means a lot. Until we see you again, Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2022! Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
Everything was perfect!
Dear Guest, We are delighted we were able to make your first trip to Quebec more enjoyable. On behalf of everyone at Pois, thank you kindly for your 5-star review! You have a second home in Montreal. Happy Holidays! Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
The food is, in short, very good. Everyone was very happy with all of their dishes. The wine selection, although quite expensive, is good, and of good value. Service is attentive and quick. The manager is a bit of a nervous type, and could perhaps afford to relax a little - if only for his benefit.
Dear DavidR, Thank you for taking the time to write such a generous review. We are glad everyone at your party enjoyed their time at Pois. We will share your health advise with our manager. If he can sometimes appear nervous is because he wants everything to go smoothly for our guests, but we certainly don't want anyone in our team to feel unduly stressed. Happy Holidays! Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
The restaurant is very pleasant. The quality of the food remarkable and the service outstanding.
Dear Robert, Your review means a lot to our team. We are privileged to have a wonderful group of people working at Pois. We'll share your compliments. We look forward to more good times! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Nice place! Good good and service! I’ ll come back
Dear LilianeG, Thank you kindly for your 5-star review and for your compliments to the kitchen and service. We look forward to hosting you again and to more nice meals together! Fede Sanchez, Directeur de l'hospitalité
Amazing food and wonderful service! The best meal we’ve had in a long time. The lamb and onglet were particularly delicious, as were the profiteroles.
Dear Guest, We couldn't ask for a better review! Thank you, on behalf of everyone at Pois. We look forward to serving you again. Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Excellent restaurant as usuals, strongly recommend this restaurant for every occasion

Terrible service and food was mediocre
Dear Guest, This is a tough comment and completely out of line with the experiences described by our guests in our other reviews. If something negative and out-of-the-ordinary happened during your visit, we apologize sincerely and we would like to learn more about it. Could you please send us more details, including the day and time you dined with us? Warm regards, Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
J'aime la place.Petit brunch entre copines ou dîner avec mes enfants...toujours une bonne expérience.
I went with my husband, we really enjoyed our dinner and experience. The staff and waiters were all very friendly and accommodating. We shared the medium size seafood platter and found the portion was excellent. My husband had the hanger steak with fries which he loved and I had the beef tartar which was good also. We were both very full by the end!
Dear Ashley, On behalf of our entire team, thank you kindly for taking the time to write such a nice review and for your compliments to our kitchen and food. It will be a pleasure to host you again! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Nice place to share a drink or a meal with friends.
Dear Zazou, Thank you kindly. Here's to a whole lot more drinks and oysters together! We look forward to hosting you again. Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Great ambiance and expected energy of a French brasserie
Dear Guest, We are delighted you enjoyed the vibe. Thank you kindly for your 5-star review and come visit us again soon! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Bon resto style bistro français. Choix de menus intéressant.
Fun bistro around the corner from our hotel. The onion soup was excellent, as well as the steak frites. My mom had the foie grad en terrine and les moules frites…..both were a huge hit with her. This place gets busy, so go early!
Waiter was fantastic and kitchen staff were on point , quick service ,everything arrived hot with perfect timing.
Great service and food was awesome
Dear Guest, On behalf of everyone at Pois, thank you kindly for your 5-star review and your compliments to our kitchen and service! We look forward to hosting you again. Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality

Family brunch of 16 people. Staff was impeccable. Food was good, the pancakes were a hit.
Dear WilErica, On behalf of our team, thank you for bringing your family brunch party to Pois Penché. We are delighted there was joy all around. Those pancakes are indeed our little "happy pill". We are glad you liked them. Looking forward to the next feast! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Wonderful dinner as always!
Dear Guest, Thank you kindly for your 5-star review and for your loyalty. Much appreciated. All the best, Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
Excellent restaurant! Le service impeccable et que dire de l’ambiance digne d’un vrai restaurant parisien.
Chère SuzanneT, Un grand merci de la part de toute notre équipe pour vos compliments au service et à l'ambiance. Ce sera un plaisir de vous revoir. Bien à vous, Fede Sanchez Directeur de l'Hospitalité
We have been here many times in the past and never been disappointed . Your table d’hôte was phenomenal and usually had a few choices. I tryout understand the pandemic issues but if I can make a couple of suggestions. Your rump steak yesterday was not tender. Your salmon dish was accompanied with some kind of vegetable that was not edible and actually felt like earth was still on them. Presentation looked horrible to say the least due to the color of this accompaniment. Both these 2 points I fell did not represent to me the Pois Penche i remember. If steak will not be tender then use something else, side vegetables should be changed for something else more edible. But everything else was good, the onion soup, crab cake, tomatoes cream soup , panais entrée. And crème brûlée. Happy you re opened.
Dear Isabella, We humbly accept your compliments and your criticism, and thank you for being a loyal guest. We have shared your message with our kitchen. We apologize if your steak was tough. It should not have been. The salmon dish comes with root vegetables skin-on. When cooked well, they have a light crunch, but shouldn't feel gritty. Maybe yours were slightly undercooked. We trust we'll do better next time and look forward to hosting you again! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality
