Le Pois Penché perpetuates the style and spirit of Paris in the 1940s, where brasseries perfected the concept of French cuisine as ‘comfort food’. Mindful of its legacy, Le Pois Penché appeals to a mixture of young adventurous diners, seasoned connoisseurs, late-night bon vivants, tourists, and local habitués, always eager to spark conversations and chance encounters over a glass of award-winning wine and gastronomy steeped in tradition. Nowhere are their desires better fulfilled than at Le Pois Penché, where opulence and everyday delightful hospitality intertwine.

Food was excellent.

Service was poor. Plates left on table, rushed to order, ordered bottle of wine that was presented when meals were finishing up and we told the waiter “no thank you”. Unfortunately we had no wine on the table to enjoy with great food.

Service was unfortunate because every dish was delicious and spot on.

Please avoid this restaurant. At the end of our diner, our server accused us of not paying any tip. We gave him more than 50$. He simply was not able to count right. Worst, as it was my wife's birthday, that was unacceptable and the server never came back at us to apologize.

this is one of my very favorite restaurants in Montréal. it is like a trip to Paris, without the jet-lag and the strikes and ... it is a beautiful restaurant with only one television, mostly turned off. the bar is gorgeous. the downstairs party rooms are also lovely. there is music, but it is kept at a reasonable level. and the greeting is always warm (my dining partner thought they knew me, but they don't...yet). and the service is friendly without being overbearing or stiff. so it is a great place to go and to be. but how about the food? last visit, i had a beautiful carrot and ginger soup, with the ginger nicely in the forefront, a beautiful mixed salad with pink grapefruit slices, pomegranate seeds and crunchy greens, followed by a tasty morsel of black cod, perfectly cooked, a hint of soy and something sweet on a bed of greens. yes, i had three starters and no main dish. we went for the dessert, too! i had three very large scoops of excellent sorbet: raspberry and mango, both with plenty of fruit flavour. we were there for a long time since we were having so much fun and we were never rushed. in the winter, as it is now, one can't enjoy the outdoor terrasse, but that's a great place from which to people-watch, too. don't forget their brunch! it is interesting and reasonably priced and you still get all the great stuff i mentioned in the first part of this review.
