XO Le Restaurant
XO Le Restaurant, situated in the former Banker's Hall, is truly a beautiful space composed of a dining room, a bar & lounge, two beautiful mezzanines, as well as four alcoves which add an extra touch of comfort and privacy. Chef Gonzalez' exciting culinary imagination brings you modern, creative French cuisine.
I would go back for sure. The food however took a little long to come out.
This restaurant is lovely. Energetic and observant front of house giving great service with some simply amazing well balanced food. We loved it.
We went to XO to celebrate my wife’s birthday and our final evening in Montreal. The room is elegant without feeling inaccessible or too stuffy. The service was top-notch. The menu selections were varied and everything we ordered was perfectly prepared. We started with oysters, which were fresh and just the right temperature. The smoky carrot soup was divine. The salad (with beets and buttermilk dressing) was great but not extraordinary. We had a three cheese plate we really enjoyed. For desert we had a pear and mousse dish that was delicious. We enjoyed a few glasses of red wine recommended by the server, and they were just right with the food. We finished the meal with some aged port, which was the perfect ending to a romantic dinner. It’s hard to go wrong with the restaurants in this neighborhood, but if you’re looking for a dining experience that is a step up in ambiance and service, XO is a great choice.
Merci beaucoup à toute l équipe pour avoir souligné mon anniversaire 😄😄🎉
XO is our go to place to eat!! Best service, best experience, best food!
Potentially the most exquisite restaurant I have ever discovered. Fantastic food, service and decor. Without a doubt, top-notch.
Très bon service, par contre pas reçu la commande complète même si demandé nos frites 2 fois après avoir reçu le repas... Très petite portion, nous avons commandé la côte de boeuf pour 2 et les accompagnements étaient pour une seule personne. Donc très cher pour très peu. Je ne le recommanderais pas. Le décor est magnifique et les serveurs très professionnel
Excellent breakfast in a gorgeous setting!
Wonderful staff that made this a fantastic experience!
The absolute best restaurant I have ever been to. The place itself is breathtaking and the service is impeccable. As for the food, it is simply incredible! You won’t be disappointed! Definitely my new favourite
First visit with my mom and definaltely not the last! Made reservations with open table and mentioned a birthday celebration. We were very welcomed right from the start and seated at a booth already set up for us. The restaurant is so grandiose but our experience with the service was impeccable! We were not rushed to order as we were in awe of the setting. Few different waiters came often to ask if we needed anything else, check if our coffee was still hot or needed refill and even after giving us the bill we were told that we did not need to rush. How wonderful it is not to be looking at the time! Bonus was when I saw a waiter approaching us with a 'sparkling' dessert platter and that they were so open to take pictures of us with no hesitation!!!! Thank you to this beautiful team in making my day EXTRA special! Looking forward to return visits!
All it took was one reservation to set in place a wonderful birthday surprise! I arrived with crutches due to a broken ankle and was more than accommodated. Everything from the entre to the final course was exquisite, our waitress a pure delight. My guest, the birthday girl, was almost brought to tears of emotional rapture. Thank you XO for the excellent evening and now fond memories!!
Best place for a business meeting. Discreet and professional service.
This was a truly great experience ! I went to celebrate an anniversary and worked out some special details with the manager in advance. She was extremely accommodating and everything was amazingly delicious. We dined on a Friday evening and got to enjoy some live jazz which was the cherry on top.
Merci! Excellent service et tellement un bel endroit.
Great restaurant! Love the atmosphere!! Live music romantic, great place for valentines dinner with my husband !
Service great, food great.
Disappointed that we chose Friday after Valentine's day to go and were forced to a fixed menu. We didn't get a chance to truly experience XO. Our service was great, the food we had with the fixed menu tasted good, however portions were tiny. You may leave hungry. Will go back.
Beautiful Valentines dinner
Incredible ambiance!! The best place for a special evening with a special person!
Food overpriced, overcooked and portions too small.
Toujours surpris de la qualité de la table d'hôte et de l'excellent service. Plaisir renouvelé à chaque visite.
Simple magical! Food, service and decor was perfect.
C'est un très beau restaurant effet wow!
Pour une sortie en amoureux c'est excellent. Très bonne nourriture, confortable et le personnel est très gentil et attentionné.
Food was bland and had zero flavor. Extremely over priced for the quality and flavor of food served
What an experience in old Montreal! We were very early for our reservation but were welcomed and treated so nicely by all staff. Ambience was chic but intimate with the antique fixtures. Food was pricey, but we didn’t mind because it was a special occasion for us. Thank you to XO Le Restaurant for the great hospitality!
Un des meilleurs steak que j'ai mangé à vie. Mes compliments au chef.
The restaurant was really good, the food too. Only the service was a bit slow but they really sweet and caring
The attention to detail by all staff was phenomenal and the human interactions was lovely. It was our first time going to restaurant and we felt welcomed like friends and seasoned patrons.
Very disappointed. Food was not as good as it used to be.
I went with my fiancé, and I'm a soft-spoken person and the server we had understood everything I said and also spoke English very well. The food was amazing. It was just a perfect dinner to start our Montreal Trip together.
Great food, excellent service!
La salle a manger la plus belle en ville. Tartare de boeuf au fois gras. Wow! Merci. Joyeuses fêtes!
Four of us had Christmas brunch at the XO. It was a first-time visit, but it won’t be our last! The food was exceptional as was the service. The venue is beautiful and confortable. The only exception to the extraordinary beauty of the place is that huge flatscreen TV hanging over the bar. Really? Does that thing have to be on all the time and on CNN showing disasters and other unpleasant news??? It takes away from the pleasant ambiance and overall dining experience.
Excellent food , ambiance!!! Top restaurant ...it is a must 👍🏻
Gentil service mais trop lent. Plats sans relief et entrées insuffisantes. Très déçue pour le prix
Fabulous atmosphere very old world fancy with a touch of coziness
L’endroit est magnifique très théâtral avec les colonnes et les balustrades d’origine. L’ensemble de jazz était bien. Il n’ y avait pas de menu dégustation contrairement à notre première visite.
Le service a été moyen pour le prix, attente pour l’apero, pour la prise de commande, bof! Nous célébrions un événement, nous l’avions indiqué sur la réservation, personne ne nous a demandé ce que c’était. Notre première visite à l’été avait été nettement meilleure.
GREAT spot in an amazing old hotel. The architecture is off the charts and the food and wine are even better. The scallop gnocchi was one of the best dishes I've ever had!! Service spectacular as well :)
