Le Chien Fumant
First time, we had a hard time finding a drinks that they actually had. They had no cranberry or apple juice, no amaretto, it was hard to find something they had except with the cocktail list they had. We tried 2 of them. 1 was ok the other horrible. We were rush to order, couldn’t order entrées and main course separated. It had to be done all at once as per what the server said. We had 3 entrees, Chinatown calamars (by far the best!!!) classic beef tartar and grilled octopus. Both of those weren’t great.
We had the main course shortly after, no time to digest a bit of the entrees. As the menu wasn’t the same as the web one, I was disappointed that the course that I wanted wasn’t on the menu. Ordered steak plate and giant shrimp and sausage. The steak was disappointing as there was 3 little piece sourrounded with so much lentils. Shrimp wasn’t so bad but the sausages so small and thin the grits was good.
We had desert a plate mixed of 5 small ones. Was very small but ok. 200$ bill.
Overall wouldn’t go back.
Toujours aussi débile, service et plats de feu, déjà hâte d’y retourner! Congrats à toute l’équipe!
Delicious and comforting food in a lovely homey place. The warmth of the restaurant was in contrast with the icy treatment from the staff... appalling service.
Incredible food, save for a less than par dessert, but the service brought down by the experience. Upon being seated, we were greated by our server immediately telling the time we had to leave. The entire experience was a true roller coaster between loving our meal, and being confronted by our surly server.
While the food is great, there are many comparable restaurants with employees who care.
OMG THE FOOD IS SO FREAKINH GOOD, THE WINE LIST IS IMPRESSIVE AND THE STAFF IS ADORABLE. LOVELY LITTLE PLACE
It was our second time there.
Very disappointing ! The service was rushed as our waiter was standing there waiting for me to take the last bite of my appetizer so he could grab my plate before I could even swallow. The food was ok.
The bill was not cheap at all. Not worth our hard earned $.
The server didnt gave us time to relax and talk after the meal. He wanted us to leave as soon as we're done...
A truly excellent and original steak tartare ('Korean style'). Cheese plate would merit perhaps some small condiments or option to have two different small pieces for same price.
Restaurant chaleureux, service impeccable.
Nourriture vraiment excellente; nous avons choisi le menu dégustation et succès total sur tout.
Le seul hic est la liste des vins qui sont dans l’ensemble très chers. Peu de choix de vin à prix raisonnable aux alentours de 50$
This restaurant is consistently amazing
The food and drinks are amazing! We were four and shared the Feast for brunch (Sunday) and it was delicious!
I went for dinner with my girlfriend. We found the service staff snotty, from the guy who greeted us at the door to the bartender, as we were seated at the bar. I actually felt uncomfortable due to the attitude coming off this guy.
The food was just average. I ordered the steak the pancake (not sure the correct word for this) under the dish was next to impossible to cut through.
Bottom line wouldn’t return or recommend this place due to uppity staff. Went to Nora Gray the night before and it was excellent go there instead!
Very nice place. Very attentive service. The majority of the food including the short rib, tartar and the spring roll were all fantastic. However the lamb shank was a disappointment and the rapini..... I just didn't enjoy the rapini.
It was an awesome experience and we had a perfect evening. All four of us went for the « menu dégustation » and none regretted. The food was in abundance for all and the mix of flavours was incredible. We got to taste a bit of everything on the menu. Truly a must go to place.
C'était une belle soirée. Manger et prendre un a trois verres au bar c'est parfait. Laissez le serveur commander a ma place et ne pas etre decu.
Very noisy and we were rushed to leave the table for 9 serving at 7.
Not nice meat pieces but the taste was very good!
Très bonne nourriture - Par contre, service en accéléré, nous étions au premier service de la soirée ; l'amabilité était moins au rendez-vous que la dernière fois où nous y étions allés. Nous y retournerons sans hésitation par contre.
On m’avait recommandé Le Chien Fumant
L’expérience était vraiment supérieure
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.
Fantastic Ambiance, great staff, nice cache. Great dégustation menu. Highly recommend. Parking was a bit of a challenge. Really authentic feel. Very diverse menu.
An excellent combination of wholesome flavorful and diverse cuisines, great and attentive service, awesome bartender, intimate seating.
My go-to spot every time I visit MTL.
Nous avions une réservation et nous avons eu la table que 45 mins plus tard...
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.
Food was good and the ambience was awesome but eeevice wasn’t great! I would wait to go back, nothing spectacular.
I loved this meal. Would highly recommend! The appetizer I had was as amazing as the main.
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!
Small quaint neighborhood place with outstanding food! We thought it was the best food of our visit to Montreal!
Lovely staff. Great food. Cozy and intimate. We Chicagoans felt like we were held in the arms of a neighborhood.
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.
Très beau resto! J’aime l’ambiance. Manque un peu d’espace au bar! Sinon, tout était bien
Always a great experience! The food is excellent and the service was good. Would definitely recommend
Very tasty and unique meal all round. We had a great dinner. Service was extra special: another great meal at Chien Fumant!!
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.
Très bon menu dégustation! Très bon service! Petit endroit charmant.
Mon incontournable à Montréal ! Jamais déçus, toujours bien reçus ! Et de l’originalité renouvelée !
Amazing food, great ambiance but service not very friendly, too bad if it wasn't for that I would have rather a 5
Prix du vin élevé pour la qualité
La nourriture correct mais sans plus... prix trop élevé par rapport à la qualité
L’endroit est charmant, le service excellent et les plats sont succulents. Les mignardises se partagent très bien pour clore le repas.
