Came as recommended by a friend. The food is so good that I would recommend it even for the most staunch meat eaters. Food is exceptional, service was excellent, wine list is small but all good quality and the cocktails looked really lovely. Ambience is really lively over lunch, but very chill outside of lunch times.

Depends on the friend. I would not recommend LOV to people that have a preference for complex, stronger tasting foods. All the foods we ordered at LOV were good but very light.

Love this restaurant from the moment I saw the photo of the decor - all white washed exposed brick with lovely green accents, - just so pretty and light, and lovely. I couldn't wait to have lunch there. I was not disappointed. I had researched top restaurants in Old Montreal and this one was highly rated, and we loved our experience. You must make a reservation as lunch at LOV is extremely popular. There is outdoor seating but we chose indoor. We arrived early and we were promptly seated. I ordered a spicy bowl which was crunchy, sweet / savory and delicious, followed by cappuccino. Our server was helpful and attentive. We are eager to return to LOV. 5 stars!

Le menu pour le brunch est décevant. J’ai pris l’omelette vegan et c’était insipide (sans saveur) Mes compagnons de table ont pris les crêpes. Bonnes crêpes mais petites portions, sans accompagnement
Le bruit de l’extracteur à jus s’ajoute à une musique de fond agressante. Bref, à par la déco et le service, je n’ai pas aimé ni mes amis. On n’y retournera pas

First time dining at this restaurant. Add another restaurant to the great restaurants in Montréal. Starters and main course far exceeded our expectations, as I don't generally eat vegan (my guest was familiar with the restaurant and was also pleased once again).

Je recommande ce resto sans hésitation. Les mets qui y sont servis sont délicieux et différents de ce qu'on mange habituellement dans les restos végés. En plus, c'est beau comme lieu et le service est tout simplement excellent. Nous avons été enchantées et y retournerons sans aucun doute. Petit bémol, attention à la musique trop forte. C'est juste sur la ligne.... Et aussi, pourquoi les options à choisir qui suivent sont toutes en anglais. Je suis bilingue, mais c'est en français que ça devrait se passer.

Portions are too small for the price. Why can’t we get 2-3 flavours of ice cream
In one bowl if one bowl is around 3 scoops? 🤔

C’était quand même bon. Il n’y a pas beaucoup d’option de nourritures. Les serveurs répètent sans cesse « tout ce passe bien ici? », « tout est à votre goût? » genre OUI ÇA VA MERCI! Mais bon, ils ont fait attention à la contamination croisée et à nos allergies avec des carottes.

I recommend researching the dishes. The overall ambience is great and the service too. The decoration is beautiful! Sweet potatoes are so good and well cooked. I liked the Truffle and Caviar zucchini spaghetti, but I thought I had too much sauce for my liking.

Le service y est toujours impeccable, les gars sont super gentils et professionnels, ils ont un service discret qui permet les échanges entre convives sans interruption impromptue. La bouffe est bonne et pour le centre-ville, les prix sont OK. Un peu cher pour le lunch mais ça vaut le détour.

Love this restaurant! Really nice atmosphere, amazing food, great wine, and wonderful service. I'm from New York and LOV reminds me of ABCV, another stellar vegan restaurant with a slightly upscale vibe. Will definitely recommend LOV to all my friends visiting Montreal and looking forward to my next meal there.

we went to LOV for our wedding anniversary dinner. It was great. The dumplings as a starter were amazing and just the right size to share between two. We had the mushroom risotto and the gnocchi. Both were really good. The risotto was creamy and delicious and the gnocchi had just the right amount of sauce so that it didn't over power the dish. The waiter was nice and attentive. I think I'd pass on the cocktails the next time. They weren't as balanced as the food was, so I'd probably go with the wine or beer.
