Chez Delmo first opened in 1934. Today, the restaurant remains in hommage to the original owners Delisle and Morissette (Delmo) and continues to be a favourite for regulars and visitors alike.
Just minutes away from the Notre Dame Basilica in the Old Port, Chez Delmo continues to serve fresh and premium quality seafood prepared in a traditional French style combined with a modern flair. The house specialty is the Dover Sole meunière and the classic tomato cream soup which have been virtually unchanged for decades.

    First time in Montreal and this place did not disappoint! Spoke both English and French so don’t worry if you only spoke English. There were so many good dishes to choose from but our waiter did a great job with us. We definitely recommend this great restaurant

    Excellent meal and service. When we made reservations, we indicated we were celebrating a birthday. If you don't do anything to acknowledge or celebrate a life event, then why ask?
    Chez DelmoResponded on December 28, 2023
    As we do not ask guests if they are celebrating, there is an option on the Open Table platform to add notes and tag certain occasions. Our customary acknowledgment for special occasions is at the time of the dessert order. Perhaps you opted out of this part of your meal?

    Toujours un plaisir de manger chez Delmo! Le service est impeccable, les produits sont frais, les serveurs connaissent leur carte et sont vraiment aimables. Le seul regret que j'ai eu cette fois ci c'est de ne pas avoir pu manger les moules que j'attends depuis des mois. Elles sont victimes de leur succès. Allez-y vous ne serez pas déçus!

    Merci Diahara! Votre serveur s'appelle David, et je lui ai transmis vos bons mots. Ci un des items sur le menu vous intéresse spécifiquement, appelez-moi directement et je vous indiquerai s'il est rentré car les produits arrivent presque quotidiennement. Merci et joyeuses fêtes! Benoit

    Absolutely lovely time. We went for my father in laws birthday. They paired a lovely brandy with his dessert. It was an amazing meal. My table ordered the clam chowder, mussels and fries, endive salad, walleye, and the salmon. Everything was absolutely lovely, cooked perfectly. The waitstaff was wonderful and made very good (strong) cocktails. Would go again.

    Best seafood restaurant in Montreal. Seafood pasta is amazing. Their Dover sole is served classic meuniere and is the best i've had anywhere. The cocktails are very generous (thank you William). Busy neighborhood joint full of regulars but well choreographed, perfectly timed service, we did not feel rushed. The food is absolutely amazing, expensive but top quality. It's a family owned restaurant, and the interactions between the owners and their children who work there are hilarious and make the atmosphere very special. Service is top notch. Thank you! Strongly recommend.

    Service was a bit slow. Wine was delicious. Our party had the rib-eye, braised veal and salmon. Very good food, served hot and well-prepared. I mentioned in my reservation that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday, but restaurant missed it. Not a big deal but that would be going above and beyond, for sure.

The main course of lobster was delicious but the mussels were the surprising highlight! I welcomed the friendly efficient service and their recommendations.

    We booked our reservation as part of the Montreal MTLaTable promotion. However, we were disappointed with our dining experience. While the service was very good, we felt that the overall quality of our meal was just average. We expected much more from this restaurant. The noise level was quite high where we were seated as the tables were situated quite close to each other. We were expecting a more inspired menu, and a quieter, more relaxing dinner experience at this historic restaurant.

    Aucune flexibilité pour modifier un changement de frites d'accompagnement pour des légumes. Le menu du jour n'est pas clair à comprendre. Je pensais avoir un menu à 40 $ par personne. Plus naturellement vin et tisane. Sans dessert. Je me retrouve avec une addition comprenant taxes et pourboires à 15% à 216 $. Pour un lunch avec une amie - c'est beaucoup trop... je ne vais pas y retourner.
    Chez DelmoResponded on November 3, 2023
    Nous sommes très surpris de lire votre commentaire: en effet la formule du midi (table d'hôte) est clairement indiquée sur une carte séparée du menu régulier, avec le prix de $40 indiqué avant les choix. Le menu régulier ("à la carte") est sur un autre document et encore là les prix sont clairement indiqués sur chaque item. Vous avez choisi "à la carte" et facturé en conséquence.
