    Great food! Awesome service with friendly staff. We accidentally dropped a fork at one point - the host heard from around the corner and brought a replacement within 30 seconds. Staff water pouring trick was also a hit for the whole family. Delicious!

    We were looking for an outdoor terrace and our hotel recommended Le Polisson. It was a Sunday night of a very busy weekend (Montreal Gran Prix) and the staff was clearly exhausted. Food was good, not fabulous and the service was a bit shaky. However, everyone was very nice and the overall experience was good. Loved the frites, the salad and the draft beer.

    Overall the food was good but the menu was pretty limited. The mussels were excellent. My wife had the lobster roll. The lobster was great but the bread was too large and chewy for the lobster. For dessert we had the fresh donuts with Carmel sauce. I would not order this again.

    Very cute spot in old Montreal. Mussels were great as was the wine. I wanted to marry those fries ❤️ The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The service was quick and efficient. Will definitely go back and recommend.

    Les moules étaient froides, pas assez cuites. La guédille ne débordait pas contrairement à son nom sur le menu et j’aurais aimé avoir des frites avec mon plat qui était homard sur gaufres. Seulement deux desserts, dont un gâteau au chocolat congelé sûrement pas maison. Pour le prix, nous nous attendions à un peu plus.

    Coming to Montreal and looking on the web and picking a place to eat for the evening is not that easy. But, this was a winner. The service was fantastic and food was great. The ambiance is a cross between chic and homey. If you're looking for a night out in the old town I would recommend this restaurant.

    Not haute cuisine, and place is not for snobs; but Le Polisson has it charme; and food is good (in some cases - great). That was right choice for us.

    I remember going there when the restaurant was under Epik name and they had good ravioli when I tried the new Ravi-au-lit nit so good and really small portion when it's not a high-end restaurant. The service was great but little disappointed with the dishes not tasting as good as it was under the other name.

    The new day, calamari and salmon tartare was great! The braised beef dish: mashed potatoes were the best part. Wish the beef was still “together” or on the bone so that I could tear it apart on my plate. The vegetables on the side were bland. The churros were really dense, kind of like fried stale bread rather than a churro. Server was awesome!

    We all had an excellent meal from start to finish in a very nice decor. Execution, flavour, texture and presentation were all above par. Creativity was found in the onion soup being made with IPA with amazing results. The pudding chomeur was outstanding in both texture and flavour. Wine list was interesting. Service was professional , warm and friendly.
