We arrived early for our 9:30 reservation and they were very gracious and accommodating. Our waiter was attentive and gracious. The food was wonderful. Everything was very fresh and serving sizes were great- not too big, not too small. We would definitely return!

When we arrived, they gave us a choice for seating, bar, terrace or dinning. We chose dining even though there was a group and it was 40 degrees outside with humidor, too hot to be outside. They gave us a table in the corner away from the group which made it better. The service was excellent, and the food was amazing. Reminded me from my vacation in Italy back in 2010. The wine selection was good, but then again, I am not too picky on the wine. Overall, I would definitely go again.

Un très bon restaurant. Nous y retournerons! C'est un peu cher, mais c'est le seul inconvénient. Nous avons été impressionnés par les connaissances linguistiques des serveurs (français, anglais, italien!)

Malgré un accueil glacial et impersonnel de l'hôtesse, on avait l'impression de la déranger et elle avait du mal à nous répondre en français, nous avons eu en superbe repas avec un service très attentionné.

La nourriture et les vins étaient vraiment excellents.

L'hôtesse n'a carrément sa place avec le public, mais heureusement, notre serveur était très amical et on ne pouvait demander mieux!

Very good Italian fare and friendly considerate service. Loved my veal roulettes and my partner enjoyed his shrimp and linguine. Cheese cake was delicious. The wine from Piedmonte paired nicely. The noise level was very low as we like it!

We sat outside which was quite pretty and my favourite part of the meal. The waitstaff was upbeat and well dressed. Unfortunately I asked for a non-alcoholic drink and when it arrived I could taste the vodka. I asked the waiter and he assured me that there was no alcohol. Since I know what vodka taste like I had to ask him to go check. Which he did and voila the drink had vodka. They did make me another drink which was delicious but I had my reasons for not wanting alcohol and it was not taken seriously. The food was... ok. The meat platter was very similar to one we make from the grocery store deli. The gnocchi was lacking flavour.

I wouldn’t tell someone not to go here but there are lots of amazing places so this isn’t one I would recommend first.

Charles was the most attractive and attentive waiter we could've asked for! He made me fall in love with the Restaraunt and I would recommend it for anyone who has some money to spend. Great food and great service!

The food, staff and service were excellent. We were a group of 6 and had a great time. Our waiter Charles was excellent and very pleasant which contributed to us having a great evening . I forgot my credit card at the restaurant I was notified via cell and returned to pick it up.

My husband and I ate at L'Epik on a recent trip to Montreal. I booked it because of the positive reviews. However, we were quite unimpressed. Totally average food that was brought out way too quickly. The waiters were charming and solicitous, however that did not make up for the mediocrity of the food.

The appetizers were good. I ordered the steak medium well and it came rare. The server didn’t check on us for another 20 minutes (we were still waiting for wine that was ordered too). My husband was done his dinner before they could “recook” mine. Ugh!
The waitress never did come back. We paid someone else and no one even thanked us for our business. I am certain my face indicated I was not very happy. It unfortunate that this was how we spent our anniversary... there are too many other places to eat in Old Montreal to spend money at Epik again.

The evening we experienced was excellent. The young men serving were truly enjoyable, talkative and good with advice.
Food was great.
It was a beautiful Montreal evening, so being on the intimate terrace was picture perfect.
I selected business meal as that is what our evening was about.
That said I could have easily selected special occasion, date or get-together with friends if choosing more than one option was permitted.
I would return in a heartbeat!

I think the standout was the terrace, if you get a nice sunny day. As well, the very friendly service from the waiters and waitress with whom we interacted the day we visited. As well, the reasonable 5 for 7 prices on drinks menu. All of this would make a visit/lunch/early evening worthwhile up on the terrace. Any review you see that extols the food is overhyped or unschooled; food was just acceptable, which is fine as long as you don’t expect more.
