The waiter completely ignored us. We had finished eating and the plates were not cleared for over 10 minutes. He paid a lit more attention to French speaking customers. It would have been a much better experience if the waiter was better.

Prix un peu élevés pour le lunch - me font un peu penser à ceux du Vieux-Montréal ... peut-être parce que c’est un restaurant principalement fréquenté par des touristes?

Musique un peu trop forte et peu de mise pour le lunch. Malheureusement, le gérant a semblé refuser deux fois de baisser le volume après que nous en ayons fait la demande.

Nourriture excellente toutefois.

Seule commentaire: Dommage qu'on ne nous ait pas informés que le vin rouge que nous commandions n'avait pas de réserve (dernière bouteille disponible). Il a fallu changer de sorte de vin au milieu du repas, faute de disponibilité. Comme nous étions 8 personnes, il était pourtant facilement prévisible que nous pourrions commander plus d'une bouteille pour compléter le repas.

The restaurant was super cute and totally had the Parisien look and feel! The staff was very friendly and polite, the food was delicious and perfectly portioned. I found the service to be slow. For example- after being served my Americano, it took a good 10mins before the waitress came back with the milk. Also, they forgot my friends smoothie 😞 I would however be willing to give it another chance!

As usual it was excellent. I Have been here over a dozen times in the past years. They pour a great martini, salmon tartare was outstanding, as well as the duck confit. The salad was extremely fresh, with soft leaves. The vinaigrette salad dressing added a touch of sweetness that really went down well. We love sitting at the bar, which gives you a very French bistro feel, but with a broad menu, that also caters to the business traveler and tourist crowd. Oh and let me not forget the 5pm to 8pm oyster special which was excellent! 12 lovely PEI oysters for $20.

The only downside on this visit was the service. We normally get outstanding service at the bar. However on this occasion, the bartender was not very attentive to placing orders, cleaning up the dishes or providing the bill. She seemed to be off doing other things or chatting with the other bartenders.If it wasn’t for the other,very nice bartenders, who we called over, we would’ve had a difficult time getting a meal.

The waiter should pay more attention to client, because it was hard for us to find someone ( waiter) for a service.

I’ve been to Pois Penche many times and had a great experience, but we went for Grand Prix weekend and were so disappointed. We ordered things we get all the time and they were not nearly as good. On top of it, they jacked up the prices for F1 (as expected) but I felt that the quality of the food was less good. The shrimp in the shrimp cavatelli was overcooked and our salmon tartare was just not as good as usual. I put a note on the reservation that it was my friends birthday which they completely ignored so I ended up telling the waitress right in front of her and she didn’t even do anything about it. She brought my friend the main size tartare when she asked for entree and proceeded to try to charge her for the main when she told them she had ordered the entree size and the other waitress said it wasn’t a problem and they’d charge her for the entree size anyways. (Confusing, I know) We didn’t leave her a great tip and she was visiblg upset, but hey, we paid double what we usually do for the same food and it wasn’t as good, and the waitress didn’t check in on us to ask if things were good or to refill the water/wine glasses frequently...

The food was good but the portions for all the plates for the 5 guests were on the modest size - all could have been comfortablly larger.
The bread and jam was excellent and a great way to ensure people were full despite the small portions.

Located right in the Golden Mile of Montreal. We had the salad with the pomegranate seeds, along with the mussels. Both were fantastic and I'd probably order the exact same thing next time. We sat right on the street and it was great people watching - both the pedestrians and the bike riders. Would definitely recommend. Others posted problems with service but we had no sign of bad service - excellent service all around.

We were looking for a nice, centrally located restaurant to have mother's day brunch. They were excellent about accommodating nut and shellfish allergy. The food was good and we really enjoyed our brunch. Our table for 4 was spacious and the restaurant was busy but the noise was well absorbed by the surroundings and we were able to carry on a conversation as if we were at home. Everyone walked away happy with the occasion. Parking was easy and free on the street as it was a Sunday morning. We would definitely meet up there again.

My wife had the smoked salmon and duck confit, both were outstanding. I had the mussels and steak frites. Mussels were excellent, steak was good but lacked a bit of flavour.overall, the food was excellent, highly recommended. The maître d’ was also excellent. Our only issue was with our waiter, he was non-existent, hence, why we thought highly of the maître d’ who stepped in a couple of times. The waiter did not offer pepper, which wasn’t on the table, didn’t refresh any of the wine glasses and after we had completed dinner dropped off a dessert menu without slowing down, just walked past and plopped it down. We have been to Le Pois Penche many times but this server was atrocious.

Nous sommes allés à ce restaurant pour mon anniversaire pour un brunch, après une visite au Musée des Beaux Arts. Notre table réservée la veille pour six personnes, dont deux enfants, était prête et très bien mise. Le menu n'est pas très élaboré mais tout était excellent parmi nos choix. Je recommanderai certainement le Pois Penché à mes connaissances.
