    Delicious meal at pois penché but exorbitant prices. $88 for french toast, American breakfast and 3 coffees. Come on!! Yes it’s a great place but the prices are insane. They could at least give you the coffees. They cost us $15. Great place when you have a lot of cash to spend on breakfast.
    Le Pois PenchéResponded on May 14, 2024
    Hi AlanL, Thank you for your nice compliments to our food. We are sorry you felt the prices were high. Please, allow us to explain, We believe we are among the least expensive brunches in our neighbourhood in the same restaurant category. We aim to give our guests outstanding quality. Our French toast ($24) is a lovely, thick brioche bread with homemade strawberry coulis topped with homemade cream of cheese and white chocolate, and fresh strawberries. Our American breakfast ($23) includes sous-vide maple bacon thick as a steak and French-style sausage—all made in-house—plus eggs, potatoes and confit tomatoes. Even our jams are made by our chefs. We try our best to give you quality and hospitality for your money. We'd love to host you again! Fede Director of hospitality

    My wife and I entered this restaurant and were greeted by Omar. He was charming and welcoming. Then Hugo took us to our table and took time to answer our questions about the history of the restaurant. Antonio (Tony) was our server. He was knowledgeable about the food and wine and served us in a friendly and efficient manner. The food was fabulous! Prepared to perfection and served hot. We can’t say enough about Le Pois Penche. It’s on our list of favourite restaurants. We WILL be back. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    We ordered our food medium rare and had all of our burger and steaks well done . We ordered a glass of wine which was suppose to be 8 oz and received about 5 oz . Our reservation was at 930pm but doesn’t mean they had to rush and make the food to whatever temperature they wanted . Won’t come here again they need to do better .
    Le Pois PenchéResponded on May 13, 2024
    Hello, JeremieF: Please, allow us some clarifications. Your party changed the reservation twice and arrived later than 9:30, but we understood and it was our pleasure to accommodate you. Your order was placed 5 mins before closing time (10pm), which is perfect. The chefs were happy to serve you. We have 8 oz wine carafes and 5 oz glasses. Maybe we brought the wrong one, but you were charged for 5 oz, not 8. As for the meat, overcooking takes longer than undercooking. The chefs wouldn't overcook intentionally if they were rushing. Still, the wine sizes and the cooking points were mistakes on our part. We wish errors never happened, but it's impossible. We apologize sincerely and hope to regain your confidence and welcome you again for a proper Pois Penché feast. Fede Dir. of hospitality

    Excellent service. Excellente nourriture. Fermeture très tôt pour un vendredi soir à Montréal (on s'est quasiment fait mettre à la porte alors qu'il n'était pas 23h00) Accès au restaurant via l'hotel Chez Swann très médiocre (alors qu'il existait autrefois un accès très élégant qui a été condamné).
    Le Pois PenchéResponded on May 11, 2024
    Ah, vous avez raison, Manon : la vie nocturne de Montréal n'est pas ce qu'elle était ! Je crois que nous sommes le restaurant gastronomique du centre-ville qui ferme sa cuisine le plus tard, à 22h. Même les restos chinois du coin qui étaient ouverts jusqu'à 1h ou 4h du matin ferment maintenant à 21h, Nous aussi, nous souhaitons voir un retour en force du nightlife. Nous offrons toujours des recommandations de bars locaux et menons même des campagnes auprès de la ville. En ce qui concerne le Chez Swann, l'accès est géré par l'hôtel, mais il y a toujours un bouton qui ouvre la porte de notre côté. De la part de nous tous, un grand merci pour votre critique et au plaisir de vous revoir ! Fede Directeur de l'hospitalité

    We went for breakfast. Everything we ate was delicious and the portions were generous. We got the smoked salmon with egg and avocado and the Croque Madame. We also had a basket of fresh baguette and butter. The mimosas were good too. They had more champagne than juice. The cafè americano was good as well. A shoutout to our server who was very attentive and remembered us from a previous visit.

    I come here fairly often and usually enjoy the place. However, the last visit wasn’t so great. I invited an out of town friend who is heavily pregnant. The food and service were great but as we were about to leave (we already paid) a manager approached our table and told us that he needs our table for the next group of guests in three minutes. They do have a two hours reservation policy, and we must have overstayed our welcome by about 20 minutes, so he was technically right. However, there are nicer and more polite ways to convey the message. My pregnant friend got upset. I might consider coming back there but not soon (if ever). There are lots of nice places in Montreal which will happily take my money.
    Le Pois PenchéResponded on May 11, 2024
    Dear Tamara, thank you for taking our phone call and for helping us understand what happened. We provide a fair amount of time for meals and we do our best to extend reservations as much as we can. Unfortunately, when the dining room is full, we have to honour the next reservation and not keep someone waiting 20 minutes at the door. When necessary, we'll inform our guests as graciously as possible and offer alternative seating if available. We feel as uncomfortable about it as our guests. We are sorry that the communications didn't come across as kindly as intended. We trust you've had many nice meals with us and we hope that this glitch won't discourage you from returning. You'd been a wonderful guest and we'd love to see you again. Fede Director of hospitality

Nous avons contacté notre agent OpenTable pour confirmer que les messages d'évaluation ou autres sont aussi en français. Ils sont envoyés automatiquement aux courriels de nos invités après une visite. Si vous les avez reçus en anglais, je vous assure que ce n'est pas notre intention. L'investigation est en cours.

    Amazing restaurant with classic French dishes. Guillaume was our server and was professional and fun at the same time. The Bouillabaisse was the best I have ever had. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely excellent! Food was outstanding - honestly in the top restaurants-food experiences when dining out we’ve ever had, and we’ve dined in Michelin restaurants around the world. Surprising to us after dining here that this restaurant doesn’t yet have one. Surely only a matter of time. We had the grilled octopus, oysters, duck, and bouillabaisse - all fantastic. Highly recommend!

    We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Le Pois Penche' aided tremendously by our server Marwa for our anniversary dinner. From the moment we entered and were seated we were treated to a first class experience. I should also add that the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing allowing for easy conversation. Highly recommend, very glad to have found this restaurant while in Montreal.

    Overall it's a not too bad restaurant, perhaps we're there at their peak, the noise level is hight. The server is friendly, he's been busy to take care of many tables.
    Le Pois PenchéResponded on April 9, 2024
    Dear Kiin, This review is well below our standards. Whenever we get a low rating, we assume that something out of the ordinary occurred, that we made a mistake, and that you didn't receive our usual quality and attention. Please, allow us to apologize. Being very busy is not and excuse for average service. It's actually the time when we should be at our best. Let us know if you wish to share more details about your visit. We hope we'll see you again. We are certain there are many dishes on our menu you'll love. Fede Director of hospitality
