Restaurant L’Orignal is tucked a few steps below street level in a historic building on a sleepy side street in Old Montreal. We’ve been serving elegant comfort food and inventive dishes inspired by Quebec’s vast terroir since 2008. Our menu changes often in order to elevate seasonal ingredients. We choose our suppliers in consideration of the quality of their products as well as the sustainability of their practices.

But a restaurant is more than outstanding food, wine and cocktails. When you visit us, you can also expect…

    Excellent date night meal while visiting Montreal for the weekend - food was delicious and interesting, not to mention beautifully presented. Service amazing. Fantastic location. 10/10 would definitely return.

    L'Orignal is my favourite restaurant in Montreal. I discovered it two years ago and have had the pleasure of dining there four times so far, with many future visits to come. The ambience is high end, but comfortable, the food is consistently creative and delicious and the staff is exceptional. The way the Servers describe the specials gives one a glimpse into not just the quality of the food, but the pride the restaurant takes in their meals. Highly recommend!

    Fantastic overall experience. Burrata was good, a bit too much dressing, but nonetheless a great appetizer. Bison Burger was hands down best I’ve had - better than in Alberta :) Bartender/owner was great company as well. Friendly, informative, and loves his restaurant!!

    The hostess said to sit anywhere at the bar. But the bartender growled at me to not sit in the seat I chose. So I took a different seat. Midway through the meal I was asked to move again to make room for a couple more guests to a large loud party who had taken over the bar. I don’t mind sharing with a loud fun party, but someone - the group, the bartender, the manager- might have offered me a drink or something. I was mostly made to feel in the way, so I ate fast and left. The bone marrow was great. Schnitzel overcooked and overpriced.

    What a beautiful hole in the wall restaurant that was cozy and inviting from the moment we entered. We tried everything from their oysters, to their specials, to their cocktails, to their beer everything was very tasty and unique. There were items on the menu suitable for our formal Tastes as well as one or two simple items that we can also share with our children. We felt like family that was visiting and cared for just the same.

    Great food, service, and ambience. The sticky toffee pudding alone makes this place worth the visit.
