Not sure if our server was having an off night but he wasn’t very attentive. He forgot to put in one of our orders and at the end of the night when my husband got the check, the manager made a point to tell my husband that the bill does not include tip. We thought that was a really bizarre comment to make. The service really turned us off.

When we were first seated, it took a while for the server to greet us and bring water. Then my husband ordered a beer which did not come for a long time. He finally asked the server who went back to check and it was brought to him a little later. The food was excellent and there were lots of choices on the menu. The staff was friendly and once the food was served. the service was quicker. I would return based on the food choices and quality.

The menu was very limited and the portions very small for the price. I would not go back or recommend this place. I believe Lov gives veganism a bad name by serving such small portions for a high price.

We went for breakfast on Saturday around 11. It wasn't crazy crowded and the food was great -- the sugar shack was excellent and my boyfriend's lemonade was top notch.

We had a fabulous meal time at LOV. The meal was delicious, the service warm and attentive. As it was international women’s day I was given a flower as I left.
This restaurant is doing everything right.

J'ai pris le pâté au poulet végane et il était fade et tiède. Par contre, j'ai bien aimé la limonade maison. Sinon, bon service et belle ambiance dans le restaurant. Personnel attentionné.

The food was really good, awesome place and decor, the service was great but the portions were quite small! it's the only reason im rating down a star. After eating my meal I was still a little hungry... which is not what's supposed to happen after leaving a restaurant.

We were excited to go to LOV for their desert menu but half of the items were not available.
Although it's something that can happen every now and then, it would've been nice to know ahead of time to manage our exceptions. Besides that, service was great, our waitress was very knowledgable and overall ambience was also good.

Trop cher pour ce qui est offert et la grosseur des portions. Très bruyant, même un mardi soir ! Service sympathique mais brouillon, il a fallu attendre la facture 35 minutes (et finalement la demander à un autre serveur).

Staff, atmosphere and food quality make it worth a try. The decor is stunning and the staff was more than attentive, efficient and nice.
However, do not go there hungry nor thirsty. Portions are small and you end up having a 3 courses meal to fill yourself up.
Drinks are very expensive: $19 for a glass of wine seems a bit much.

Je recommanderais le resto car mes premières visites étaient géniales. Mais la dernière fois, le "pâté au poulet" était vraiment décevant, voire pas bon. Il manquait cruellement de goût (mais où étaient passés le sel et les épices??). C'était super fade. Et les gros morceaux de fruit de jaquier très fades et sans intérêt et coupés trop gros aussi. Très dommage au prix des assiettes!
Mon amie avait pris les pâtes de courgettes à la truffe avec imitation de caviar. Son plat était délicieux aux premières bouchées mais par la suite le niveau de sel était beaucoup trop élevé. On en conclut donc à un problème d'assaisonnement en cuisine, mais alors là, un gros problème.

Vegan or not-- any lover of food MUST try LOV! Wow! We went on a Sunday evening so they were only serving the limited/snack menu. Don't let this deter you though as there were still plenty of options! The poutine was out of this world. We sampled a variety of other things, everything was incredible. The details in the space did not go unnoticed. Beautiful and charming restaurant! The staff was great and accommodating (even though we don't speak french). Highly recommend!

One of the best vegan restaurants we have been to, in any city, including New York City, where we work and eat a lot. Creative, tasty and not over-seasoned dishes--excellent, attentive and friendly staff and PLENTY of options.

I don't remember the name of our servers, but we received fantastic service from them. They were attentive to us, took our order fairly quickly, consistently refilled our water for us and made sure to ask if there was anything else that we needed.

The vibe at LOV was awesome - the decor was very aesthetically pleasing and it was pretty inspiring. It made us really want to come back and see what else we could notice that we missed before. Definitely made me want to go ahead with the rose gold decor in my own home!

The food was delicious. We went for brunch and my husband and I ordered a main each and 3 sides to split, as well as a beverage each, so we knew it wouldn't be super cheap but it was still fairly affordable for the amount that we ordered. It was a treat for us so although going there won't be a regular thing, when we want to dine out again in Montreal, LOV will definitely be a top option.

All in all..good for the looks, bad service. The waiter took forever to order us drinks and a simple salad took 1 hour. The table next to us ordered their coffee and got it AFTER their food...Food was cold, small portioned and over priced. Drinks were great tho.

Beau concept, mais certains plats manquent d’assaisonnement. L’entrée de choux de Bruxelle et le tartare de bettraves sont bien assaisonnées, mais nous avons été décus par le pâté au poulet végane. La crème brûlée est très goûteuse. Le service était très bien.

Les plats étaient bons et goûteux, mais tous tièdes à la limite du froid...même les cafés étaient tièdes. Dommage, ça ne ne donne pas beaucoup envie d'y retourner. Ils auraient intérêt à sortir les garnitures froides du frigo avant de les ajouter aux garnitures chaudes, qui figent instantanément.

Service gentil et attentif.

The service was excellent. She was friendly and knowledgeable. All our questions were answered and our server constantly checked to see if we needed anything. We came in a bit early for dinner and they were very accommodating on the time. The food was quite delicious and served in a timely fashion. Although there was no rush ed feeling at all.
