Visiting Montréal for the first time and wanted to go somewhere special for my birthday. Started with the oysters which were amazing , especially the miso gratin ones - flavor explosion . Next my fiancé and I split the octopus appetizer which was also A+. For an entree I got the black linguini- packed with seafood and lots of flavor. My fiancé got the filet mignon which he said was one of the best steaks he’s ever had. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. Overall excellent experience !

The food was really good but the service was just wow....outstanding!!! The person taking care of us gave great recommendations on the menu. We told our preference in terms of wine and she was able to find a gem which was perfect for our meal! Mille mercis pour une expérience qui fut mémorable. Certainement, dans mon top 10 des restau à Montréal!!!

Two of the best pescatarian dishes we’ve ever had. A little loud, but it was 9pm on a Friday night. I wish there was a specialty cocktail selection, but the only specialty cocktail is lovely. Overall, fantastic, and we will return on every trip to Montréal

We had gone for my sister’s birthday and the menu had a fresh selection of seafood and well composed entrees. The server was a delight and was able to provide great advice on what were some local favourites. One thing that we appreciated is that the staff was fluently bilingual and took the time to ensure that we understood what was being brought to our table at each service. Overall our favourite treats were the wagyu beef tataki accompanied by the salmon with Israeli couscous and fried zucchini flowers. I would definitely go back.

Amazing. A co-worker recommended we check Le Filet out and it was a great suggestion. The food was amazing (the mix of French and Asian flavours worked incredibly well), the service was casual but professional, and the vibe is fun. We will be back. Thank you Le Filet for a great experience.

It was a birthday dinner and we got the best we could expect.
Great food with the revisited cuisine from a japanese chef. Outstanding !
The way each meal was prepared and then presented on the plate was unique.
The fish was so fresh and tasty. The meat was perfectly cooked.
The wine list was great with a wide range of wines covering many wine regions with affordable prices.
Friendly and very professional staff.
A great evening with the family.
Last but not least, we are french, expert in good food, wine connaisseur, and demanding (few would say arrogant), so a BIG thanks to the staff !

I have had much better meals at Le Filet in the past - the food was good, but not exceptional and for the price, it seems to me it should approach exceptional. The grilled octopus was tasty, but the presentation and accompaniments did not seem to enhance its flavors. The Wagu beef was likely the best dish with the eggplant although the large mushrooms were a bit chewy. The duck was tasty but a bit chewy.
I would not be as quick to suggest to my friends to go to this restaurant, where I would have done that in the past.

The food ambience & service at Le Filet is a perfect 10
The wine pours are rather small , so get a bottle and your good to go. Oysters are spectacular — tuna tartare maybe best I’ve ever had
The layers of flavor are well thought out on each dish

It’s just a wow evening — eyes roll back in your head

Can’t wait to return

Very disappointed. this is touted as one of the best Montreal restaurants but the food did not live up to that reputation. Smoked mackerel rillettes to share were pleasant bu no revelation. The starters were the best, a very nice snapper tartare with a surprise chunk of very tender octopus in the middle, delicate but tasty tuna tartare and octopus with crispy quinoa were all interesting. However the mains were a let down apart from very nicely done scallops with an unusual arugula risotto. The duck magret was chewy, even stringy in some sections and not particularly tasty; the special Spanish turbot was almost tasteless and the first bite was a horrid jelly consistency - tissue which should have been removed from under the skin. And we were ready to enjoy the mains as they took 45 minutes to arrive. Our server was lovely (which is why I've rated service 4* but this was her not the kitchen function which would get a "poor") and she apologised more than once but the delay was unexplained and since none of us were having anything that would have taken more than a few minutes to prepare and the restaurant was not full it was unacceptable. A leisurely pace is pleasant and the timing was fine for the shared plate and the starters but then ... nothing. Our server had suggested what turned out to be a very pleasant sparkling wine which we eked out and enjoyed but having arrived at 7 we were only done at 10 (although we did have desserts which were delicious and arrived promptly). Overall though we would not return - a kitchen unable to serve in a timely fashion and then producing substandard food is not on our menu.
