Been going my whole life this place is a Montreal legend.
Ok food. Drink pours—on a martini—are pretty petite.
Delicious. Huge portions. Highly recommend!!!!!
I came here for Sunday brunch as it had been recommended to me by a friend.
If there is one thing that Québécois Love.... it’s their potatoes! Potatoes come with just about everything!
1/3 of my omelette plate was potatoes... the other 1/3 was a salad with a vinaigrette and the last 1/3 was the omelette itself.
I love breakfast and consider myself an omelette snob and I have to say, I was not impressed. There was no seasoning even with all the vegetables in it.
You do get pastries , fruit , juice and coffee if you order brunch so the value is definitely there!
I’ve not yet come here for lunch but dinner would be what I recommend.
I’ll definitely be back!
Oh and by the way... OpenTable shows you can make Sunday brunch reservations between 7:00 am on. This is inaccurate! They do not open until 10:30 am on Sunday’s!
I come here every time I am in Montreal. I was looking forward to their halibut in parchment paper and was sad to see it was not on the menu. However I decided to try their Veal Osso Bucco and it was AMAZING!
This place knows how to ensure you leave with a full stomach! While you wait for your dish, they provide bread, olive tapenade, butter, cheddar cheese and small pickles.
The service is fantastic and is always an all around pleasure to dine here.
I’ll be back for Sunday brunch!
We ended up on the bar side by mistake. The bistro is much quieter! Food was good and so was the service. We would probably try something else if in Montreal in the near future. The dining room is very well decorated.
Food was ok, but both our dishes were definitely under-seasoned. Service was good. We were a little bit disappointed overall
we went for brunch based on the menu however, when we got there, it was not applicable and a special more expensive menu was in play, this should be indicated when making the reservation - if you show the menu on open table, it should be the accurate one.
We attended the Christmas Brunch. It was a great family atmosphere and our 4 year old had a blast, face painting and Santa was great! Thank you!
Nice ambiance, the food was amazing, very nice decor and there is a special vibe that make you feel very confortable .
Very Nice expérience 👌👍👏
Service was extremely slow, the dining room was almost empty so no ambiance whatsoever. It was a thursday noon and I have been regular customer in the past and never saw this resto so empty!
Bon repas Entre associés en affaires.
Third time here - food was fantastic as always. The calf liver is my favorite. Ambiance with the Christmas decorations on the terrace were a great touch. I look forward to coming again.
J’ai pris le steak tartare bien relevé, une spécialité depuis toujours. Excellent. Seul critique, une mayonnaise faite maison serait à faire.
Food was to die for. Friendly service. Lovely place where you don’t need to dress up to get wonderful, fancy, foodie food. Pretty large portions. Bistro is upstairs - very different from the loud, crowded bar! Definitely recommend for special occasions.
Food was good at bistro but the service was very long and timing was off by waiter.... on the other hand at Bar down stairs our bar tender Raul was amazing top notch service very very good....
In all, it was okay.....but I still enjoyed it.....but would not go back.
we ordered the Rib streak special, not at all as advertised in the photo. I thick steal servered on a cutting board served perfectly cooked with a hot pink center. What we got was a flatish grey steak. Neddless to say we were NOT satisfied. They did offer to replace the main meal I opted for a complimentary dessert.
The Steak tartar was also a miss. Over spiced with only black pepper, somewhat dryer than usual. It was fine but NOT up to the usual par.
This was the 2nd miss at one of my favorite's
Beautiful setting in the heart of Montréal; great balcony and cosy and warm interior. This is traditional and authentic fare, with an excellent pastry chef as well!
We find L'Academie on Crescent always reliable and friendly. The food has never disappointed and the staff are super! We use it often as a "home away from home" and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great BYOB restaurant!
