Le Pois Penché Ratings and Reviews
I’ve eaten here before on my last visit to Montreal. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the Residence Inn Marriott Downtown and the Omni Royal hotels.
I ordered their Ballottine De Volaille - Chicken stuffed with wild mushrooms and a tarragon sauce. What they actually had was a chicken baked breast in a bearnaise mushroom sauce served upon mashed potatoes.
It was still very tasty and I did enjoy it!
The service was very attentive and non-intrusive.
I will definitely be back!
Expensive and disappointing. New Years Eve $85 price fixe would have been fine if the food had been good. The chef likes to be innovative and creative but we really just wanted delicious food. We wondered whether anyone had tasted the dishes beforehand—it seemed unlikely. I found the first appetizer—mi cuit salmon—lovely but my husband and the couple next to us refused to eat it. The red wines available by the glass (there were three) were so awful, I skipped having wine with the main course. The 2nd app w mushrooms was good. Duck ravioli was not very good, and braised endive with spoiled ham and rock hard avocado ice was a complete failure. Steak should not be prepared sous vide. It was tough and chewy. The chocolate dessert was good. Service was very good but could not possibly compensate for the disappointing food.
Came for new years, they first tried to sit us in a room in the back with zero ambiance and totally separate from the rest of the restaurant. they agreed to move us when we asked as there were multiple tables in the main room. Food was just okay, steaks were a bit tough and they forgot on of our first courses. We had a good time but probably a few too many mishaps to come back.
It was New Year's Eve, we were looking for a La Carte menu. We were never informed that there was a prix fixe menu. We found out when we arrived at the restaurant. Too much food, not that great either. Better value and food at Restaurant Europea a few nights before.
While the ambiance is very nice and the service friendly and efficient the food itself was less than memorable. Very unusual for this place since many previous meals were outstanding. The 4 of us had lamb shanks, bouillabaisse, and seafood stew. The lamb was fall off the bone cooked which is good but the flavor was not as robust as it should be. Both the seafood stew and bouillabaisse were very modest in the contents. The flavors were good buy simply not a substantial enough portion. The bouillabaisse consisted of the jus, 2 shrimps, about a dozen small bay scallops and 2 2: squares of cod. That was it! usually this dish should have at least 3 types of shell fish, 2 or 3 types of fish and small diced potatoes. Seafood stew was similar. For these reasons I give it only a fair rating.
Le repas était très bon. Le fait d'avoir tout le menu disponible à Noël est apprécié. Le service était efficace, tout en nous laissant le temps de savourer chaque plat. Les portions étaient de très bonne taille. J'ai adoré les moules et le tartare de saumon. Le baba au rhum à lui tout seul vaut le déplacement! Les seuls bémols: le chou frisé accompagnant le saumon grillé n'était pas le meilleur choix de légumes, et un plus grand choix de vins au verre serait apprécié. À part ça, j'ai hâte de retourner au Pois Penché!
Le menu MTL à table était très décevant. Portions minuscules, pommes de terre crues, aucun accompagnement... Ce genre d'événement représente une chance de faire connaître le restaurant, mais vraiment, c'est RATÉ! Carte des cocktails extrêmement chère (15 à 20 $ pour un verre).
Delicious food in a pleasant brasserie setting.
We had great, friendly service. The recommended french onion soup was the best I have tasted- lots of cheese, great broth. The mushroom-stuffed chicken rolls were superb, accompanied by delicately seasoned vegetables. The creme brûlée was as also excellent, as was the special brownie. Portions were small and prices moderately high, but the Table d'Hote meal package was only $31 Canadian dollars. Worth a visit.
Very pricey for very ordinary fare. A filet of Mediterranean Sea Bass with an arrangement of vegetables was $42 per person. I was expecting better especially since the Brasserie Lipp chef from Zurich was the feature chef. Service and ambiance were good. I never complain when I dine with my wife at Lemeac. I would have liked to have left a more positive review but I would not be telling the truth alas.
The food was quite good, delicious desserts. The price point is slightly on the higher side for a Montreal French restaurant. The service was very slow... we waited over 30 minutes for someone to come by after dessert. In the mean time, we saw other waiters doing other tasks instead of taking care of customers. Overall, it was not worth it.
Went there for brunch, the food was good but the baked beans were way undercooked, portion sizes are big or small, no in between. The coffee was pretty bad, served from a huge percolator. To be fair the smoked salmon on toast was really good but the portion size was a bit small compared to the other plates.
Visiting Montreal with my daughter. Found this restaurant online while looking for a place to dine on our last pm in town. Lovely decor, very attentive staff, and professional in service. Varied menu. Our server (sorry I forget his name but so lovely!) helped us to select a lovely French wine. Would definitely visit again.
Our server, Frank, was a delightful young man. We dined there the evening of September 24. He truly made our dining experience very enjoyable.
We ate outside because the air conditioning was not working in the restaurant. Two downsides to sitting outside: if by the tree, lots of spider webs and the trash is too close to the restaurant, so if it's windy, it may smell. It also attracts homeless folks looking for recyclable products.
We go to Montreal once or twice a year and always try to find a good restaurant. Pois Penche was great- so worth the drive from NY State. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We sat by the window people watching and enjoyed shared appetizers of oysters and rilletes. For my entree I had a fabulous saffron flavored seafood stew and my husband had steak tartare with shaved Parmesan and truffles. I can't say enough about the service- our waiter was fantastic. We will go back but unfortunately not until next year.
