British
The word pub is derived from the term public house. A public house was traditionally a meeting spot that could serve as a center for the community as much as the local church. With Burgundy Lion, we immerse ourselves in the community and re-create that sense of comfort but with a modern twist. The concept behind the design and feel of Burgundy Lion is to blend a traditional British pub with a modern lounge bar and to offer a unique twist on British pub cuisine. Burgundy Lion is located in Little Burgundy, an old working class neighborhood in Montreal, steeped in history. Since the early 90"s, Little Burgundy has enjoyed a re-birth as young professionals are taking advantage of its renewed sense of community. Burgundy Lion is not a "traditional" pub by Montreal standards. It provides a higher quality product in food, drink, service, and ambiance than other Montreal pubs.

Dommage que ce soit trop bruyant et que nous avions eu une table placée en plein passage des serveurs de la cuisine à la salle. Les serveurs heurtaient à toutes les 5 minutes ma chaise ou moi-même. Le repas était vraiment bon avec un prix un peu élevé. Beaucoup trop de monde et peu de place pour manger. Les chaises ne sont pas confortable du tout et vraiment trop bruyant pour pouvoir converser à 2 ou plusieurs.

Une magnifique découverte. Un service impeccable, des plats riches en saveurs et portions généreuses. Un décor digne des plus beaux pubs anglais ! Le seul hic : notre table était situé dans un couloir entre les cuisines et le bar. En ayant réservé notre table, nous nous attendions à une meilleure place en salle. Nous demanderons simplement une bonne table la prochaine fois.

We were there for lunch and order a steak with frites. The steak was chared on the outside and the taste of the burn didn't allow any other flavor to stand out. I will go back but will avoid anything that comes from the grill in the future.

Plates were good and portions were large. Food prices were just ok, a bit on the expensive side.
Noise levels are very high, but I guess it’s normal for a pub.

Service was slow, it took a while for the waitress to take our orders for drinks and then again a while for the food orders.

One of the best fish and chips I have eaten and for desert the sticky pouding was amazing. Great service and I will be going back for high tea.

Upon our arrival we were greeted with a smile. Or waitress was fluent in both English and French and knew the menu by heart. She conversed with us on different subjects and came back a couple times to check on our satisfaction. The food was great and got and the whiskey melted like caramel in your mouth.
What a great night.

We come here all the time. The one time we brought another restauranteur the service was horrible and as he speaks French, he heard our waiter talking about us. We live here so quite embarrassing.

Drinks were good and so was the ambiance, but the food left me un-impressed. Not nearly as good as i remembered it from my last visits! Would still come back, but maybe not for dinner, only drinks.

Fish & chips: chips were soggy, fish tasted like it was ready to go bad. Service was slow. Appalling lack of handicapped accessibility to upstairs where Highland Games ceilidh was taking place. Cider was very good.

We went for the US vs Netherlands women's soccer final, so we were expecting - and hoping! - for an energetic crowd. We were not disappointed :) I requested a table with TV viewing in my reservation, and was very pleased to be seated upstairs in a great location.

The service was slow and spotty. I do not fault our waitress at all, who was doing admirably with a busy resto. But management should perhaps consider staffing more wait staff up top for large occasions like this. We waited about 15 minutes to get menus, then another 15 before coffee and water were brought over. Luckily we had the game to keep our attention away from our hungry bellies :) Once it came, the food was delicious - the Rarebit was awesome! The clamato juice in the caesar was a little thin, but otherwise good. I've been to Burgundy Lion before - I live in Montreal - and would definitely go again for a morning sports event.

The French fried were terrible..... really disgusting
We were a party of 4; none of us could eat the fries......it appeared to us as if they had been cooked in old old grease and left to become soggy over several hours.
Shameful.
We will not be returning and will not be recommending this restaurant/pub.


The fish and the steak was ok.

I had the burger and my friend had the fish & chips and honestly I wish I could have had both. The burgers was big but not messy. The fries were great. The place is nice and a great option if you're going to watch a show at the Corona Theatre that is just next door. Really cool area too.

The only thing that was surprising was the choice of table we were assigned. Even though most of the tables were empty, it felt like the worse table next to the stairs was assigned to us.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé l’ambiance,le service, la nourriture et la proximité du théâtre Corona.
Nourriture de pub honnête. Fish and chips et salmon Rushdie très apprécié sans compter le délicieux dessert « Caramel collant ».
Le service était super étant donné que nous allions à un concert à 19h. Avions réservé à 17h et avons eu tout le temps nécessaire. Nous le recommandons sans réserve.

Good experience, but the lamb shank was over cooked and rubbery. Entrées we’re excellent, and the atmosphere and service excellent.
