This was my first visit to this restaurant. We had brunch and it was terrific. It was very hard to choose because it’s a really good menu. I had an omelette with a side salad that was great.
Fabulous Bouillabaisse and lobster with spaghetti dish.
We were running late driving from Toronto but staff were kind in holding our table
Pleasant atmosphere, service and great wine.
What more could you ask?
Very nice french food, well executed a place we will return
Devrait rafraichir la decotation. Belle ambiance , et bon menu.
The food was amazing and the staff was friendly. It was a very enjoyable night!
Delicious food, portion size perfect, service was attentive without being annoying.
The OpenTable reservation automatically had us seated outside but the manager was kind enough to seat us inside when requested.
The option to choose outdoors vs indoors on the reservation system would be good, very different ambiance.
Very plesant ambiance, service perfect, flood delicious and prices very reasonnable.
Very nice service. Good food, the bouillabaisse was excellent. Desserts were amazing ( we had crème brûlée and pêche Melba).
bruyant sur le coin de la rue mais quand même agréable
This used to be one of my favourite places in Montreal because of the delicious food and the attentive service. Things have changed the last couple of times I’ve been there. I usually sit at the bar because I am dining alone while visiting on business. I always enjoyed the beef tartare because of its perfect texture and vibrant seasoning. The last time I was there, the bartender asked me if I wanted to start with any appetizers before I even opened the menu. He was surprised when I said that I would prefer to start with a glass of wine. I then had to prompt him to tell me what wines they have by the glass. Then the prices of each. What happened to service?
I ordered the tartare, spicy. It came out quickly, but very bland. I had to flag the bartender down to tell him, he took it away and ordered me another. The second one was a bit better but not spicy, at least it had some flavour. I did not enjoy it as much as I used to.
In the past I have taken many people to this restaurant, friends and work colleagues, and thoroughly enjoyed everything. My past experiences at the bar after a long day of work in another city were memorable. But something has changed, and I’m not sure if I want to return or recommend Le Pois Penche to anyone that asks me where to eat in Montreal.
Dear Pinnhead, This is a very disappointing review, coming from a regular. Something went really wrong and we sincerely apologize. We'll share your comments with our managers immediately. Rest assured that nothing major has changed: same owner, chef, managers. We are, however, training a few new staff. It hasn't been easy filling some positions post-pandemic. We hope you'll forgive this mistake and trust us to serve you again. Your next tartare is on us! Text me at: 514-963-2534. Fede Sanchez
Friendly,attentive, accommodating staff.
Clean, modern,hip place
We met our friends for brunch.
The overall experience was wonderful from the moment we were received at the door. The service from our waiter, the beautiful food presentation and the overall atmosphere was outstanding.
Looking forward to going back for dinner.
Dear Guest, This is a wonderful, heartwarming review! Thank you kindly on behalf of our entire team. Here's to more beautiful summer meals together! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality, Le Pois Penché
the food wasn't delicious at all! and the portions were so small compared to the price. Our waiter was kind of rude, not nice and polite with us, when we needed him, he hardly answered our requests! I don't recommend this restaurant.
Dear KamandR Oh, my. This doesn't sound like the same restaurant our other guests have reviewed here. But what matters is your own experience. We sincerely apologize that you didn't get value for the portions. Most of all, we are terrible sorry that your waiter was rude. This is unacceptable in our restaurant, where friendly hospitality is a trademark. If you're willing to tell us more, we'd love to hear it. Have a wonderful summer! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality, Le Pois Penché
Beautiful interior decor and waiters are all very attentive. Menu is clean thoroughly after each use. Food is good portion size, I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Dear Guest, On behalf of our entire team, thank you kindly for recommending our restaurant! We are delighted you enjoyed the ambience and food and, most of all, the service.

Très bon! Les repas qu'on a choisi étaient très savoureux.
Bonjour Atsu ! Un grand merci pour vos compliments à la cuisine ! Il nous fera plaisir de vous revoir. En vous souhaitant un bel été, plein de bons repas, Fede Sanchez Directeur de l'Hospitalité
It was good but a little pricey
Dear Guest, On behalf of our entire team, thank you kindly for recommending us! Yes, some dishes can be pricey. The cost of great products has us juggling with how to best price our menu for our guests. Of course, we want people to return often. The good news is that we have many affordable choices on the menu, such as moules frites and burgers, plus a $29 lunch table d'hôte with lovely dishes. Hope to see you again soon! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality, Le Pois Penché
Odeur nauséabonde pendant le brunch a l’extérieur causée par un camion qui procédait à une vidange d’huile au resto.
Chère Marie, Nous sommes horrifiés. Nous avons communiqué le message à nos gérants et à la compagnie d'huile. C'est inacceptable de passer faire ce travail durant le brunch ! Nous vous remercions pour votre recommendation positive et vous souhaitons un bel été, plein de repas délicieux ! Fede Sanchez, Directeur de l'Hospitalité
Great place with excellent food and service. One of the best salmon tartars I have had.
Dear Luongo, On behalf of our entire team, thank you very much for recommending us! We'll pass along the compliments on the salmon tartare to our chef. Glad you enjoyed it. Here's to more fun summer meals together! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality, Le Pois Penché

Dear RobertL, We are truly happy you appreciated the choices. Thank you for your compliments to the kitchen and service. We are privileged to have a great bunch of people who love restaurants working with us. Have a wonderful summer! Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
Great food, amazing service. Always an enjoyable experience.
Dear ZevL, This is so nice to read. Thank you very much! Here's looking forward to more summer meals together! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality, Le Pois Penché
I’d have gone to l’Express no St Denis, but they were booked.
Whoever designed the place has terrible taste. Velvet seats, wood tables, white walls and mirrored columns. Everything clashes.
Waiters running around - don’t know where they were rushing to. We waited 40 minutes for our oysters, which arrived at the same time as our appetizers. Big no no.
NY Steak was over-cooked, not tender. Fries are terrible by Montreal standards.
Meh. Won’t go back.
Dear Deck, It looks like our whole system collapsed on your table! We are beyond sorry. 40 minutes for oysters, distracted staff, and overcooked steak are a disaster. We stand by the hundreds of 5-star reviews posted on OpenTable. Your visit deserves a do-over because mistakes like that are unacceptable to us. Please, send us a contact number and, if you agree to return, we'll be happy to make things right, courtesy of the house. Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
We go to Pois penché all the time! The food is amazing !!! Even my 5 year old son loved the mac and cheese !

It was the best meal since we’ve been in Montréal. The lamb steak is unreal. The French onion soup is the best I’ve had. Loved the service from the beautiful hostess who was extremely welcoming to the handsome server who was lovely and kind. We had a fabulous time and will definitely be back.
