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.

We frequent this pub every time we visit Montreal. It is usually one of our highlights. Unfortunately, the quality of the service and food were severely lacking on this occasion. My husband ALWAYS orders the lamb shank and this time, although tasty, was extremely small compared to past visits. My Sheppard's Pie was mainly mashed potatoes with very little meat - which was not my experience in the past. It seems like they are trying to cut back and save costs at the customers expense. As for the service, we had to wait over 45 minutes for our appetizer, and they were kind enough not to charge us for it. All in all, not sure we will go back next time we are in town.

We, collectively, agreed that the food quality had diminished since we last visited. Plates were smaller and not up to par. Disappointed.

Terrible... I ordered the steak medium. Comes over cook almost well done and Pittsburgh style... no taste, no flavour... for 40$ with tips ???

Your «grillman » don’t know his temperature and the grill most be very dirty for make Pittsburgh the meat...

I am also grillman with 15 years experience... and that’s absolutely horrible representions and not even British way.

Music over loud... can’t even hear my friend at 30cm of my face at 6:30pm supper time... not even clubbing time.

The Burgundy Lion is a long time favourite and a fun place to visit. The pub is situated in trendy area and caters to those who like a taste of British fare
The service is very good and the staff warm and friendly, catering to your every need.
During summer there is a terrace which is very popular and always full
Great selection of single malt should you linger for awhile
Love visiting and dining there

Certainly does not resemble the pubs in the UK. No where near the same atmosphere. The only thing this place has going for it is the single malt selection.

Went there for the SuperBowl. At one point, the TV stopped working and they immediately switched us to a private booth with a TV. Their turkey wings were amazing, and the staff was perfect throughout.

The staff are outstanding. Always friendly and making sure your meal is up to par. You are never rushed. The food is good and the portions are generous.

I don't live in Quebec but when i'm in town and looking for a spot to meet with friends The Burgundy Lion is always at the top of my list.

They are happy to speak to you in either French or English and that means they will always get my business!

Service, food very good. A bit of a mix up with my reservation but staff worked it out swiftly and to my satisfaction. Patrons way too noisy and the more the voices were raised, the more the music level went up.

Server was not attentive. Customers who sat after us ate first. All breakfast food. Server got upset and rude about small tip. Stared at us angrily from the door as we got up to leave. HE Didn't bid us good day, instead HE stared angrily at us with his hand on his hip sulking because of his tip. Very uncomfortable and rude. Server didn't deserve a penny.

The service and "indoor" terrasse saved the day...go there if you want a Pub ambiance, Nice waitresses, and...à Nice dog inside(no joke, they let dogs in the inside terrasse!!) the desserts are really, really good (sticky pudding, cheese cake, peach thinghy were amazing). Every thing else is average...fries are just fat, fish and chip is just 'panure', vege burger boring.

Very cool place, hadn't been in a couple years but had good memories and they were able to handle a bunch for 10 on short notice. Food is great for the price. Expect upscale pub food, and you won't be disappointed. Service was a bit slow but pleasant. Wouldn't hesitate to go back. Greta specialty coffees!

We were particularly impressed with the service. The kitchen was closing (for repairs?) and they called us that day to let us know it would be closing early. When we got there, they were very accommodating and we did not feel rushed during dinner. Maybe because of the construction there were fewer diners than usual, but the pub did not have the loud atmosphere that we had read about in some reviews. While we were initially unhappy that we had not received earlier notice, they made our experience a pleasant one; if they had not told us about the kitchen we never would have known. Pub food was good.

Overall it is an excellent neighborhood choice! If you are a visitor to Montreal and want something that is more of neighborhood establishment as opposed the downtown scene and don't mind taking a cab or Uber, then i would definitely recommend! While the waitstaff is very pleasant, you may get the feeling of lack of attentiveness and indifference

The waitress, despite speaking with her in both French and English to ensure she understood my simple drink order, did not know what I was talking about... I had specified "Schweppes Tonic Water in the yellow can", but she understood otherwise! This beverage has a strong bitter-sweet taste that can mask additives. I could not understand why I felt drunk during the course of the meal, at the end of which I asked if there were any alcohol in my food or drink, which she acknowledged admitting to serving me a gin tonic! She may have adjusted the bill accordingly, but my evening plans were changed because of my state and sensitivity to alcohol... Good thing I was not taking medication, expecting a child or the designated driver that evening!

Very disappointed with our last trip to Burgundy Lion. I ordered Colonial chicken curry, mentioning gluten allergy, and also asked for no yogurt on top. They brought the dish with yogurt on top. Which is not a big deal, mistakes happen, so I just asked them to fix my order.
They took the dish away and later came back with a plate that had a lot more food in it. I got really excited, thought they are just giving me more to make up for their mistake.
BUT as I started eating, I realized that it's the same plate, THEY DID NOT REMOVE THE YOGURT...THEY COVERED IT WITH MORE RICE. WOW!
Waitress was nowhere to be found, she came to us only twice..when we just came and when she brought the check.
I had to let manager know, he explained that it would have taken too long to prepare a new dish...so they just ...covered ..yogurt.
I am terribly disappointed as I loved Burgundy Lion so much and have been going for years. But this is completely unacceptable. It's important for people like me with food allergies and sensitivities to know that this restaurant does not take it seriously, at least not every day.
