Perfect spot for a nice charming dinner with 5 good friends. I felt that the ambiance and service was perfect for our friendly reunion but could be either good for a romantic one. The music in the restaurant was very good and at the good level!

La nourriture de ce restaurant est exceptionnelle, mélange de goût et de texture raffiné. Tout simplement délicieux de l'entrée au dessert. Service très bien, bon choix de vin d'importation privée, conseils judicieux pour le choix. Les chaises pourraient être un peu plus confortables et surtout les tables moins collées les unes aux autres, mais le restaurant est tout petit! Donc en attendant qu'il soit agrandi ce serait dommage de priver les convives d'une si belle expérience! Bravo au chef et toute l'équipe.

Nice brunch. Good option that takes reservations for brunch service. Service, food and ambience were all solid.

The polenta goat cheese Benedict and blueberry ricotta pancakes (more beignets really) were both delicious. Will definitely be back again for brunch or to try dinner service.

I love this place. Food was great as usual. Unfortunately this last time, it was a cold night and the place was quite cold from the time we arrived until about 3/4 hour before we left. This detracted from the overall experience.

Reserved at this restaurant with openTable at 10pm a Friday night. On the restaurant website, it says the closing hour is 10:30pm. They refused to serve us, kitchen was closed, they didn’t receive my reservation. They proposed me to make a reservation for another day, which is fair, but we were still hungry. I don’t know whose fault it is, but there was a pretty bad experience.

C’était une belle découverte. Nous cherchions un resto à proximité. Nous ne sommes pas de Montréal et nous cherchions un endroit simple pour manger.
Finalement, nous nous sommes laissé charmer par l’ambiance et avons décidé de prendre un bon repas et une bonne bouteille de vin. Notre pm a pris une autre direction que prévue mais ma mère et moi en gardons un souvenir très agréable.
Merci !

This restaurant had been on my list for a while, so happy to have the occasion to go ( had a show in the neighboorhood )
wish it had been a terrasse day, because the places terrasse looks gorgeous
Inside was cozy but quiet ( we had a 6:30 reservation because of our show )
Both the cocktail menu and wine list were interesting and generous
The appetizer menu was also appealing, but we opted for mains : both the gaspor pork at 32$ and artic char at 36$ ,were tasty, and the sides were inventive
Our main complaint : high prices for tasty but not swoon-worthy offerings
Would return for a drink on the terrasse , tho

Friendly knowledgeable staff. Delightfully creative appetizers, artesian main courses, vast wine selection and incredible deserts. My favorite restaurant in Montreal and the bonus is it’s Petits italie location. Easily accessible from center city by a short Metro ride. Come and let the staff delight you.

Belle terrasse, tranquille. Nourriture bonne mais manque un peu de finition. POur un déjeûner, des œufs bénédictine, pas de fruits, de pommes de terre ou aucun autre accompagnement.
La serveuse est venue à notre table au moins 10 fois, pour nous demander si tout était correct, nous a amené la facture et est revenue 2 minutes après avec sa machine pour qu'on paie tout de suite.
Laissez-nous un peu respirer. Service un peu exaggéré.

The restaurant’s terrace is gorgeous, but has zero vibe and no music. With music, the terrace would be one of the best in the city.

The food was far from acceptable. All steaks were over cooked, the fish was awful! The beef tartare should have been called Dijon tartar with beef garnish. The duck was the best dish bar none.

Our waitress was amazing! Super knowledgeable in regards to natural wine and truly did her best to make the night great.

I used to love this restaurant. Whoever is in the kitchen now should watch their plates and put a bit of pride into his/her dishes. It’s unacceptable to serve a bavette well done.

Sorry, but honestly will hopefully result in better results.

Other than our disappointment over the unusually limited menu choices (5 mains) and a fish dish that contained, maximum, 125 grams of fish, the food was quite good (in the 4 but not 5 star sense). Service was excellent, and the ambiance was quite inviting. Overall, however, Salmigondis, at least on the night we were there, did not live up to its hype. In a world class dining city with at least 50 "Wow!" restaurants (most of which I know from personal experience), there isn't enough about this one to compel me to return.

Only one dish (the beef bavette) out of 5 was good and the accompanying fries as well. The tartar full of mustard, foie gras too buttery and salty @$25!!! No wonder the portion is big. The octopuss was tender but better without the sauce and the waiter said it came with chorizo but there wasn’t any.
Despite ordering 2 over $100 bottle of wines, and expressing our discontent with the food that remained in the plates the management didn’t offer any gesture of compensation like free desert for a party of 5 or take off the salty bill the very salty foie gras at least.
Very limited good choices of a very limited wine list.
Definitely I don’t recommend this restaurant and wouldn’t go back.

The service was absolutely fine, and the mood on the terrace was fantastic.

We tried Salmigondis for the first time on a Saturday night and we were a little bit disappointed. The service was a little slow but that wasn't really the issue. We ordered 3 entrees and 1 small plate and none of them really stood out. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. Plus the portions were quite small. For instance, we ordered the small portion of gnocchi ($17) and it was literally 2 gnocchi, so 1 each. That seems a little small for a $17 plate. We ordered one of their less expensive bottles of white and at the end of the night our bill came up to $120 before taxes and tips and we were both still hungry. I feel like they either need to step up the food, lower the price or make the portions bigger. I don't think we'll be coming back. Montreal simply has so many better restaurants for the same price.

Went for a friend's birthday! We shared 3 appetizers and one meal, plus a bottle of wine, recommended by our waiter. We also shared the beignets à l'épinette! And we waited a little so we got 2 little shooters of what I could guess Chartreuse maybe but uncertain! Food was amazing, service was great I was there for dinner on Friday evening and went back with another friend for brunch on Sunday to sit on their beautiful terrace on a very sunny Sunday. Was really nice! Loved it! I recommend it strongly!

We went for diner at Salmigondis for our one year weddign anniversary. We had only heard good comments about the place, and the food and drinks did not dissapoint. The roasted cauliflowers with dukka were to die for, the fish of the day with the veggies was delicious and desert beignets just melted in your mouth. The service staff was also lovely. We enjoyed dinner, we would be curious to try brunch as well.
