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.

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.

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.

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.

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 !
