Great meal - very tasty salad and well-prepared Bison Burger. GF enjoyed the Salmon main. Toffee Tart and ice cream dessert was exceptional. Well-decorated modern setting, nice music in the background, a little action but quiet enough for easy conversation.
The service is the best we have ever had in Montreal, the food was great, my only comment would be, is that the celery root element needed another preparation in the salmon dish, it needed a contrast in textures, other than that great experience.
Cute little cabin in the woods type place, food was good but portions where small for the high price. Service was great. Not much game meat option. Deserts was so so. Would not go back.
This is now our destination restaurant in Old Montreal. Situated below street level, stone walls with a rustic atmosphere, the food was just out of this world. We had the bone marrow - melted in our mouth - served with a slightly tart topping and toast, perfect appetizer. I loved the guinea fowl with roasted potatoes: I thought I had tasted every possible variety of potato, but honestly these were standouts, a smoky flavor that complemented the fowl perfectly. And, o yeah, the fowl was also wonderful! We shared a toffee dessert that was also world class. The service was informal, relaxed but perfect in every way, very attentive and friendly, they know they are offering something special, take pride in it, but mostly concerned with YOUR experience.
This place is a new favorite now. The food was delicious, the people were very friendly, and it was all around a great time. I’ve saved this place in my favorites so I can go back the next time I’m in Montreal :)
Very welcoming atmosphere with excellent food and service.
It's a cosy, almost hidden place in old Montreal. Perfect for date night! The food is great and they have an extensive wine list, so you're sure to find something you'll enjoy.
We had great food and a fantastic waiter. He gave us excellent recommendations for food and wine!
Absolutely fantastic! Staff was incredible. The food is MARVELOUS!!! Bone marrow, schnitzel, and burger were phenomenal! One of the coziest restaurants I’ve ever been to with an incredible music playlist! A MUST!
Amazing food, amazing service, great ambiance!!!
It's by far our favourite spot when we visit Montreal. We always make it a must to go a for a meal here!
Great restaurant. the bison burger and the mushroom risotto are fantastic.
In-house brew was really good as well.
Les plats servis étaient bons par contre la carte manque d'originalité. Les prix sont trop élevés pour le menu proposé.
Went last-minute because we could get a quick reservation. Everything was spot-on. Great spot.
Food was exceptional, service was very good with very knowledgeable staff. Simply put, there was nothing for us to complain about!
Great place to have wild game that tastes amazing. If you are hungry the portion sizes are a bit small, with the exception of the snitzel. I recommend having a few sides to share if you are really hungry.
Great food. Helpful staff.
The food is really delicious. The one minor detail I noticed was that the truffle oil in the “Truffle Poutine” was almost undetectable. The poutine was good but there was no hint of truffle.
We were so impressed with L’Orignal! Our dishes were delicious, and the portions were generous - I had the starter salmon tartare as my main and it was perfect. The service was friendly and attentive, and the vibe was upbeat - we especially enjoyed the playlist! Thank you for having us!
Wow! I will come back here any time I'm in Montreal. If you haven't been, put L'Orignal on your list of "places I must experience".
Great dining experience at a reasonable price. Awesome service. Bravi!
Déçue par le risotto aux champignons. Comme c’est tout ce que j’ai mangé, mon expérience n’est pas convaincante, mais le service était bon, un poil insistant peut-être.
This restaurant is my favorite because good foods and good service. When my friends visit to Montreal, I take there every time. However, since the price is good same as taste, you should check menu on web before your visit (^^;
Another outstanding meal at l'orignal! We had the duck, ribeye steak and rabbit (special request) along with excellent red wine pairings. Capped off with a brilliant homemade dessert and espressos. The service and ambiance just add to the charm of this old Montreal favourite. The music volume could be dialed back just a touch both otherwise full marks again for a memorable dining experience. Looking forward to coming back.
Outstanding place to grab a bite to eat before the theater.
One of the most fun nights in memory took place here while dining at the bar. An extraordinary experience all around.
Great place for a gathering! Wait staff was exceptional and friendly, value for money was spot on, and atmosphere was terrific
Great food nice cosy intimate space. Good music but noise level perfect for conversation. Would recommend.
Everyone loved the meals and cocktails. The service was outstanding too.
Amazing food and superb service. Everything we had, from the individual meals to the appetizers to the drinks. The local beers were great, and the mixed drinks were delicious. Their fresh seafood options are delicious and main meals are a great taste of Quebecois cuisine.
Female server is not attentive and did not ask how things were. The beer from tap was skunky and was not consumed. She did not ask why. Also our check cheque and others around us were overcharged. Odd that it was not only ours.
Nice restaurant in old Montreal. intimate atmosphere but good to eat at the bar if you are by yourself. Food is diverse and have great fresh oysters, had rabbit loin which was very tender and great cocktails. Owner friendly and makes you welcome in the place.
Fantastic food and service. incredible to have that level of food preparation with an environment that entirely lacks pretense. Highly recommend.
The best schnitzel in town, the best service ever!!!
Great ambiance. Nice dishes but a little too salty.
Our dinner last night was fantastic! Both dishes were cooked perfectly and bursting with flavor. We highly recommend the oysters and the duck leg special, if they still offer it. The bartender was also spot on with cocktails and wine recommendations. And, the setting was very nice and romantic.
Food good & generous prtion
We a party of five enjoyed a dinner in a cozy atmosphere. Servants were very attentive and foods were just great.
First time at this restaurant. We had a great meal and the staff was very attentive. Although they don't have a kids menu, our kids loved their adult meals and we were made to feel welcome. Would definitely go back.
Great food, huge portions and friendly staff! Highly recommend this place and I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Montreal
Cozy restaurant with excellent service! Delicious seafood and did I mention cozy?
