This was my 4th visit to Lov (second at this location) and unfortunately was my worst. The brunch menu leaves a lot to be desired; we ordered the vegan omelette and lox bagel, the bagel was supposed to have cashew cream cheese but it was barely noticeable and the omelette was so bland. We were seated next to the door, and with the weather incredibly cold over the weekend, we couldn’t even take out jackets off to eat - despite restaurant having plenty of seating farther away from door. Service was poor, staff were disinterested and unfriendly. No one checked on our meal after we received it. I’m hoping this was an exception, will return again in hopes it was.
Waste of time and money. Terrific looking restaurant, but as they say, beauty is only skin deep. Visited Montreal for the weekend and dined at a number of restaurants, only disappointment being LOV. Appetizers were boring, main courses cold, soggy and a long, long time in arriving. Probably just forgotten in the kitchen. Wish we'd forgotten our reservation.
Had been to the one in McGill before, but that location is even better. We had a table on the reserved section on the second floor, and it made the evening even better. The service took a little long, but the charismatic waiter kept us at bay!
Great evening and great food.
Awesome and quick service. A tad expensive. Was told to check it out for the atmosphere, but just very noisy. Very clean establishment, but basically, with its all-white color and tables arrangement, looks like a cafeteria.
Will not return as there are much better places for this kind of food, notably Lola Rosa and Chuchai
Second time at LOV; first time at this location. It’s my new ‘must go’ whenever I’m in Montreal. ❤️
Excellent service and fantastic food.
Love visiting this place. The menu is great, creative and tasty for vegan and vegetarian
I love the food, the decor, the crowd, the service is great! Will come back any chance I get
This is my sixth visit and sadly the worst. I have written glowing reviews after my other visits and cannot after our last. Service was slow and missed even checking in on quality of food. My guest and I both left large portions of our meal and were not asked why.
Anyway might be a while before I return.
Disinterested staff, overdressed salad with too much garlic. All in all underwhelming. This was was my 2nd time going. Won't go back.
Great restaurant that has a nice setting, delicious food and great decor.
Parfait avec poussette et bebe ! Décor incroyable !
Very disappointing with the vegan omelet...good service and ambiance.
I love this restaurant! My only complaint was where we were seated. The restaurant was almost completely empty and the host seated us right next to the only table that was occupied. I understand you want to cram everyone close to the window to make it look full from outside but the experience of your diners is more important that how you look from outside. There's no need to seat people all stuck together if there are multiple tables that are free.
everythings good but the squash plate with the choux de bruxelle..not so good
This was a great restaurant. The only thing that made it not a super great experience for us was our server. We were with English speaking friends so we chose to speak English and she was almost condescending towards us because we weren’t speaking French. She was just overall not friendly and when we asked her if she would mind to take a picture of us she had a blank look on her face like she couldn’t believe we were asking her to do this for us. I would go back because it was a great restaurant but I would not want to be served by this girl again.
Je ne suis aucunement végane ou végé et ça ne m’a pas empêché d’apprécier les repas très goûteux. La seule chose que je n’apprécie moins, pour moi même travailler en service, quand l’équipe ne travaille pas en équipe. Exemple: j’ai demandé au serveur qui nous a déposé les assiettes si je pouvais lui commander un verre de vin et il m’a répondu qu’il m’envoyait MON serveur... qui n’est jamais venu. C’est de belles pertes d’argent. Sinon, je reviendrai pour sur!!! Merci
Cuisine végétale réconfortante, tout était plus que parfait.
Not coming back
I really enjoyed it! It was my 3rd time going to a LOV restaurant and I highly recommend it!
My 4 year old was with us and she was a little angel. I wasn't nervous since it's a not a quiet restaurant, we were there for 2.5 hours, had a very enjoyable long laid back meal with a bottle of wine, she was amazing the whole time since she had her ipad. My daughter loves the vegan mac and cheese as well as their vegan cheesecake. We had a great evening catching up with friends.
Ça faisait longtemps que je voulais essayer Lov et nous n’avons pas été déçu. Mon chum et moi avons passé une belle soirée en amoureux. La bouffe était delicieuse et l’ambiance parfaite. Nous y retournerons c’est sur!!!
Très déçue par la nourriture. Salade beaucoup trop salée. Cari de coco sans saveur
et bien ordinaire. Mon chum a pris un hamberger dont la boulette était molle et pas vraiment bonne...ce ne fut pas un succès culinaire pour nous.
Food was gross.
Food was okay but service was very long. Took an hour and a half to get our appetizers and another 45 to get our main meals. I was expecting more from Lov.
Beautiful decor, good service, savory food for a very reasonable price, good wine, good music and not too loud. Overall a great experience!
This is the most amazing vegan restaurant I have ever been too! But it’s also great for non vegans! Tasty burgers and fries but also yummy beets and avocado dishes. Try the organic cheese!!! I can’t get enough of this place and the decor is stunning!
The Food was to die for! And the service and the place was so Nice and beautiful:-)
Surprenante décoration printanière qui en plein coeur de l'hiver nous a réchauffé.Tes bon service .
love (pun) the place and the ambiance. It is a real gem in the middle of the city and cant wait for the terrace to reopen.
The LOV burger, though delicious was not possible to navigate.
The burger and sauce slid off the bun and oozed everywhere on first bite and became an unmanageable mess. The 3 of us who ordered burgers all ended up using forks and knives-which after all , isn't really the point of a burger.
Please ask the chef needs to find another way of constructing the LOV burger to make it more possible to eat without creating a volcanic eruption.
Highly disappointed with the food and slow service!
It took 25 minutes before a waiter came to us. T W E N T Y F I V E
Très bons desserts, mais mon grilled cheese aux camerises n'était vraiment pas bon, le fromage gusta en tranches n'était même pas fondu du tout et il y avait à peine de camerises (pas assez pour goûter quoique ce soit). La salade en accompagnement n'était pas bonne non plus. À noter que j'avais adoré mon grilled cheese il y a quelques mois au LOV McGill (fait avec un différent fauxmage). Vraiment déçue, comme c'était notre souper de Saint-Valentin et la fête de mon chum...
Jamais déçu par les saveurs et les couleurs des plats. Par contre par deux fois le service n'était pas excellent. La premier fois nous avons attendu 30 minutes notre plats de résistance après l'entrée. La commande n'avait pas été envoyé à la cuisine. On nous a donc offert le dessert, ce que l'on a beaucoup apprécié.
Pour la seconde fois, notre entrée nous a été servie avant nos boissons et les olives que l'on avait commandées avec. Puis le serveur passait venait trop souvent remplir nos verres d'eau, sans même nous demander si l'on était prêts à commander le dessert... Bref encore beaucoup d'attente dans une ambiance très bruyante en plus.
We ordered our food and drinks, and the waitress never returned. We had one course and it seems we were forgotten about, because another waiter didn’t come by until we flagged one down and asked for the bill. We didn’t leave the restaurant until 7:30; 2 hours for a one-course meal and two beers is a long time, and a wasted opportunity for Lov, as we would have ordered more had the waitress come by to ask.
Good food. Good values. Lov it
Très bonne table . Le menu est original et la qualité de service efficace et professionnelle.
Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Saturday night. The food was delicious and interesting. Unfortunately, the service was slow. We had a concert at 8pm, but assumed two hours would be enough to have an unrushed meal. As soon as we walked in at 5:30pm, the host told us that they needed the table at 7:30pm, so we needed to be done by then. We waited about 20 minutes for a server to take drink orders. The server eventually took our orders for appetizers and mains. Our main courses arrived at 7pm, while everyone around us seemed to get their meals within a reasonable amount of time. We would have liked to have ordered dessert--or at least had the option to--but we had to leave to get to our concert. The manager apologized, but basically said it was a busy night. I understand that, but took issue with the fact that as soon as we walked in, we were told that we had to be done within two hours then proceeded to receive very slow service. I would gladly give the restaurant a second chance because the food was fantastic.
Went for dinner after the theater with my daughters and my mom and found it was an excellent experience. The service was good and the food was delicious! I just wanted the recipe to bring home cause it was totally amazing!
Would and did recommend this restaurant to all my friends and anyone who eats vegetarian or vegan.
The decorations and atmosphere is delightful!
Cheers to LOV!
Amazing food in a very trendy, upmarket, vibrant environment. It’s certainly a leap beyond the hippie natural foods of the 70s and 80s! If all vegan/vegetarian food were this good, the world would be full of vegans. Interesting, complex flavours. Loved it so much we went back and ate at the bar the following night.
Food was amazing and service excellent. Extremely attractive dining space, comfortable and beautifully designed. Looking forward to my next meal there.
