Le Chien Fumant est un resto prisé par les restaurateurs, les oiseaux de nuits, les curieux et les bons vivants de la ville qui ne disent jamais non à une assiette qui surprend, des produits frais et cultivés localement, des cocktails étonnants, des brunchs réconfortants et une carte de vins distinctive. Bref, un restaurant mordant, mais facile à apprivoiser.

The quintessential neighborhood spot. Outstanding food- like actually outstanding- cozy environment but with such a fun vibe. It’s almost painful to have to choose what to eat, because you feel like you’re missing out on 6 other things. So much creativity in the dishes, wonderful combinations of flavors. A must if you’re in Montreal.

We reserved in advance for three and the table we got was small. Other than that, it was a cozy place with great food and excellent service. The server was very attentive to my food allergy.

Second visit.. Food awesome again.

We were three, and although the restaurant told me via phone that the table would small, I wouldn't recommend a party of 3 going. The lack of comfort/space at the table got in the way of my enjoyment of the food/ambiance.. I'll visit again, but if we are a 3some, I will go somewhere else!

Très bon mais encore une fois, mauvaise gestion des réservations et timing du service très ordinaire. C’était pour un anniversaire et nous n’avons pas eu le temps de prendre le dessert, que nous sommes aller prendre dans un autre resto. Cela fait 3 fois que ça arrive, nous n’y retournerons plus. Dommage, c’était très bon.

Le service était trop rapide malheureusement. Nous avons pris le spécial du mercredi et nous avons reçu nos 3 premiers plats dont 2 chauds au même moment. C’et un service expéditif qui a nuit à notre expérience. Toutefois le dessert et le café étaient excellent!!

It was my second time going to this restaurant. Two years ago, we loved the brunch there. So we booked again. The service was very poor. We had to ask many times just for coffee. The waitress was distant and cold. That was very different from last time! It tainted our appreciation of the place.

I went there alone for my birthday dinner and was seated at the bar. It's a bit on the pricier side but the food and service were excellent. From the bar, you get full view of the open kitchen, which is always interesting. It's a very small venue so it gets crowded and noisy rather fast. Overall, a good experience despite the noise. My friends often go there for brunch and recommend it highly.

J'ai opte pour leur "grosse" cote de veau: c'etait... divin ! Moi qui suis tres picky avec la viande et sa cuisson, j'ai ete tres agreablement surpris. Un peu cher, mais ca en valait la peine.
Ma compagne a opte pour l'entrecote, et a ete tres satisfaite. J'ai personnellement trouve ca surprenant (dans le bons sens) mais pas exquis non plus.
Pourrait etre mieux: le service, bien que tres bon, pourrait etre une coche au dessus encore. La musique, bien que tres subjectif, je l'ai trouvee trop forte et pas forcement de tres bon gout.
J'y retournerai volontiers !

Every bite was a delight! A cozy Sunday morning with a slight drizzle outside and a corner view of a charming neighborhood made this restaurant a hit in my book. If my dish was indicative of the other meals on the menu, the chef is a master at blending flavors that make your mouth sing.

Bistro style food at gastronomic prices. Food is good, but not that much more than places like the Lemeac or Chez Leveque (which are not superb restaurants either). Price was on the higher end however. Wouldn’t mind the price if the food was up to par, but it is not. Overall a good place but I was told it was one of the best restaurants in Montreal and they failed to deliver. If you never go to any good restaurants I could understand why you’d rate this 4 or 5 stars.

Food was okay but really heavy. The decor is really hipster which is fine but prices are way too high. It would be a really good little place if the prices were lower but at this price point it’s really not hitting the mark.
