I liked the idea of practising prohibition, but the music should be from the 20-30-40 not 60-70.

Le service vraiment impeccable et la nourriture très bonne. Par contre, je n’ai pas apprécié qu’on ajoute un pourboire de 18% directement sur ma facture, ce qui est illégal. J’aurais sans doute donné le même montant, mais qu’on me l’impose, je trouve cela insultant. De plus, j’avais un rabais de 99$ et ils m’ont appliqué un rabais de 90$ seulement. Je l’ai vu seulement rendu à la maison.

What a fabulous meal and excellent service at Le Speakeasy!

We started with the tomato tart that had perfectly fresh tomatoes on a small, buttery tart crust.

For my entree, 

I had the perfectly cooked mushroom ravioli with a shallot, white wine and cream sauce with a hint of thyme. It was transcendent. There’s clearly a lot of skill involved in making a sauce so precisely seasoned and smooth. You *must* try it.



The Korean short ribs were also excellent and I was taken with the kimchi-like salad that had just the right hint of sour without being overpowering,



Le Speakeasy is a short walk or ride from the Old Port and is worth the short trip for the ambiance as well as the food. It’s modeled after an old Chicago speakeasy and the entrance to the restaurant is through what looks like the cooler of the ice cream shop outside.

The panna cotta and creme brûlée were delightful tiny capstones to the meal.

The music is enjoyable and not intrusive, with jazz and R&B favorites.

Concept original et chic dès l’accueil. Je ne m’attendais à rien côté bouffe mais les plats, notamment le tataki de thon et les pétoncles, étaient tout simplement spectaculaires! Service attentionné et hyper professionnel, ce qui n’est pas si fréquent dans les restos branchés... Continuez votre excellent travail, nous y retournerons. Vous pouvez compter sur mes recommandations aux amis et collègues.

We enjoyed our evening, the only reason it's not a 5 stars all the way is because it was a Monday and therefore not very busy

We were a group of 16 which might explain a little but still, it took 15 minutes for everyone to be served once the first few reveiced their meal. The restaurant was only 50% full!
The food was good to very good.
It was very noisy... despite being only 50% full.
The restaurant is however super nice and their fully embrace the Speakeasy theme.

We were a party of 10+ and all had an amazing time. The food was great (I had the tacos and short rib) and the service was exceptional (i think the waiter's name was Patrick). We would definitely return.

Bonjour,

Des amis et moi trouvions que la nourriture était trop salée. De plus, le rapport-qualité serait à améliorer surtout pour la carte des vins et les plats.

Merci !

Our server David was wonderful. He was fun, knowledgeable, and great conversation. Our wine was perfect for what we needed (David's suggestion). The restaurant was so much fun for us, a perfect anniversary spot for a young couple like ourselves. We loved the evening.

Very unique bar/restaurant. Exactly as everyone says, you enter through the freezer door in the small ice cream shop on the street. The bartender/waiter was excellent. Great drinks, recommendations and service. Within minutes, you felt you belonged. We had oysters and bone marrow to start, along with a chaser vodka shot in the bone after eating the marrow. We both had the short ribs. all excellent. And of course the cocktails were spot on. Highly recommend, as it is a very unique restaurant in a sea of "french" style restaurants in Montreal.

Great place ! My boyfriend and I went there after a long day of traveling but this was just the spot for us. Food was AMAZING and our waiter was so great. He bought us a round of shots and recommened a small bar nearby we could walk too. Wish I could go back!

Entry is accessed through a rear door in what looks like a shop, befitting the restaurant's name. The service was attentive, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent from appetizers to desserts.

Our 2nd visit to this great place. David again greeted us and ensured we were well taken care of. We also had the opportunity to meet the chef and discuss some of plates we enjoyed. And the drinks... our party tried a variety and everyone was very happy with their choices! This is definitely a place to try for both amazing cocktails and flavourful plates from oysters to meats including great vegetarian plates - something for everyone. As we were celebrating 2 birthdays, the evening was memorable! Merci à l’équipe et au plaisir d’une prochaine fois!
