    It has changed from the last time we were there a couple of years ago. The choice in the menu has been reduced, sitting in the front of the restaurant is more noisy and busy than in the back.

    A great surprise for us as we did not expect too much for a restaurant opened on a Sunday evening in Old Montreal. The service was impeccable, the food was excellent as well as the wine. We will definitely come back...we're told there is a nice terrasse in the summertime :)

    Food quality was not what I expected based on the reviews I saw. While ordering I was up-sold for a side-dish that was sub-standard and cost an additional $17.00 which I was not prepared for. Few vegetarian options/substitutions--this one is my fault as I should have studied the menu better. A stuck door caused patrons to have to close it to protect from cold gusts of air to spill into the room regularly...the staff seem unaffected by it.

    We had a fantastic dining experience at Le Polisson on our final evening in Montreal. We thoroughly enjoyed the prix fixee menu the restaurant offered during November's MtLaTable promotion. The Quebecois inspired dishes featured local ingredients; the appetizer, entree and dessert choices were absolutely delicious and the serving portions generous. Great atmosphere in the 300+ year old building, and kind, attentive service from all of the staff, especially Alex and Eric, who shared their intimate knowledge of the dishes, sorbets and wine selections. Most impressive, and so appreciated. Thank you for making our Montreal celebration so memorable. We'll certainly be back! Ian & Naomi Vancouver, BC

    Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Bang bang shrimp were a very poor start (lukewarm, way too much breading, dry, etc.) and when they ran out of beef, they offered a “poutine-like” substitute that was so salty it had to be returned. Finally, when bill came, we were very surprised to have been charge $19 for a simple gin drink (they charged a double for some reason) and $16 for a very small pour of house red wine.
