Love that it’s 100% vegan with great food and drink options. The 70s music was fun.
I was running late due to a malfunction on the Metro (train sat at one station for nearly an hour), but Bowhead kept my reservation- I called ahead and left a message on their voicemail.
The service was excellent and I was able to relax and enjoy my fish’n’chips once I finally got there.

The cheesecake was excellent, and my food was really good-- I had the Animal fries. Bowhead was great, classic pub fare, everything vegan. Not so much in the way of non alcoholic options, and the service was average, but otherwise I would recommend this place always.

Outside terrace dining seems a bit nicer than inside (inside is great too, but outside has even more of a vibe.)

Un peu perplexe que la serveur ne parle que l'anglais
Musique très forte, difficile de discuter entre amis
Un peu déçu que la "viande" Beyond meat ait été remplacée par VegEat (moins savoureux)
Belle attention de l'établissement pour souligner la fête de mes amis

Enjoyed the restaurant very much. Staff was courteous, respectful of COVID measures.
Food was very good. The yogurt based sauces and the meat dishes were perfect at a very reasonnable price. I wished there were a couple more vegetarian choices.
The other thing: for people that have not eaten middle-eastern cuisine, the names and ingredients of dishes are helpful, but images are even better.
Overall, I very much recommend this gem. Ask the waiters what you like and they will make suggestions on food, and Lebanese beers too!

Excellents plats végétariens (véganes), très bon service courtois, et belle terrasse extérieure pour mieux apprécié la vie sur la rue St-Laurent, j'y retournerai lors d'une prochaine visite à Montréal!

My daughter is vegan, my son in law, vegetarian. I am neither. Since they had been before and loved it, I treated them to what I considered a true feast. The food was amazing. We bought a bunch of dishes to try and loved them all. The cocktails were perfectly blended. The terrasse was safely laid out in consideration of the pandemic, so I felt relaxed enough to enjoy the meal. Bravo Bowhead team. I'll definitely be going again.

The food is really excellent. The only thing is that our waitress was not speaking French at all and we are French speaking and we think it is not cool in Montreal not to at leadt understand a little French. Overall it was a very good experience on the terrasse.

Bel endroit sympathique. La bouffe est bonne et "accessible" pour des non-vegan. Petit bémol pour la tranche de pain blanc faisant office de croûton avec le tartare de courgettes... Cocktails un peu chers, mais délicieux. Il faudrait que les serveurs portent leur masque correctement, i.e. couvrant nez et bouche (le nôtre le portait sur le menton...oups...)

Absolutely amazing service and even better food. Got the captain burger and was hesitant to upgrade my fries to the animal fries but did NOT regret it. I will definitely be back!
