Excellent food. Great place for a business meal because of central location. I brought French colleagues and even them were impressed.

Overpriced for what you get . Breakfast was average. Service was ok.

I was very disappointed when i received a charge of 15 dollars for a mimosa on mother’s day.

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.

we arrive on time few minutes before 8 pm
the table was not ready .This is a disappointment ,it s a fairly expensive restaurant so it would have been nice to have the table ready rather than asked to wait a the bar .
The service was very good once seated .

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.

Excellent except at one point for about 30 minutes the music switched to a Yanni style music until the house singer took over. The Yanni type music is a very odd match for this restaurant and its patrons.

Très belle soirée, cuisine française excellente. Le hic de notre soirée a été le chanteur qui se promenait de table en table. Vraiment pas notre style et en plus très fort rendant les conversations difficiles. Si, sur le site, avait été indiqué que le vendredi soir il y a un chanteur sur place, certainement nous n'y serions pas allées.
J'avais parfois l'impression d'être dans ''Love boat''!

La cuisine était excellente,ce que je déplore c'est le niveau élevé de la musique d'autant plus que ce n'était pas de la musique de bistro français....et une autre chose que je déplore ce fût de nous faire dire que nous devions libérer la table au bout de 2 heures....jamais il en fût question au moment de la réservation,remarquez que 2 heures ce fût suffisant mais ça commence mal...le brunch.

We enjoyed our entire meal. The staff was friendly and excellent. The sommelier was quite helpful and the wine he recommended was excellent. pricing seemed quite fair to us. The vibe in the restaurant was friendly and upbeat. The music was enjoyable and not too loud.

Absolutely delightful! Every part of the meal was carefully prepared and presented. The mussels, best ever tasted, the French onion soup with gruyere cheese was exquisite to the palette, the duck confit an absolute best and the creme brûlée and the wine pairing concluded one of the best dinners ever had. The service made it all come together, including the presentation of the desert.
This is one place that will be remembered about Montreal and for sure on top of our list of recommendations.
Thank you.

Worst experience in Montreal. Montreal
Is known for his culinary experience not this place. Food is terrible and overpriced. The manager is completely incompetent and has no control over his chef! Our server was very nice but was so embarrassed for all the problems we had. Soup was barely warm missing the goat Crostini on top, main dish has absolutely nothing to do with the description all different sides, meat was again barely warm the sauce was supposed to have Brie in it didn’t have any and was tasteless, On a positive side the best thing was the bread. Will never go again neither recommend to anybody.

Upscale brasserie food quality and preparation was very good. Service was professional but the big negative was the wine list. Starting at about $65 CDN it is so incomprehensible and poorly organized (not to mention some cute commentaries about producers names etc.. that don't help) that even the waiter couldn't figure out what was a Cote du Rhone or a Cabernet etc... This really needs some work and maybe they'd sell more wine.

Lovely 9 pm menu. Delicious, generous portions and excellent variety. Three in the group had the bavette & fries. I had the Atlantic salmon. The soup and salad starters were excellent. So if you are looking for a place after theatre or a late evening bite while downtown we highly recommend this spot.
After looking at pictures of their brunch menu I think we’ll be back for that also!
Staff was very knowledgeable and genuinely friendly.
