    The space is fantastically decorated , murals are stunning. Unfortunately in a city with fantastic private import wine lists and phenomenal food Vandale fell short on both counts. Oysters were the best part, delicious and briny but cod, tuna tataki and shrimp were bland and nothing to write home about. Our server was lovely.

    Went there at about 9:15, at first it was a nice welcome but when i choose to not order food and just take a drink the guy serving me didn’t even look at me, said nothing and walked off. The other waitress was also very rude and impolite. First time i went there i had a great experience but i was literally treated like i was less then nothing.

    Went for Montreal a Table special menu, which was delicious. The Tuna Tataki is memorable, and the lemon merangue dessert was outstanding. Great vibe with very cool artwork all over the walls. If I had to find a negative, the service was a bit too fast for a fine restaurant. Cocktails, apps, and wine all arrived at once. Apart from that, the server was excellent.

    The restaurant is beautiful and our server was great. the music isn't too loud which is great. However, I got a call only 2 hours before my reservation to inform me that since they're participating in Mtl à table I had no choice but to order from that menu. Would've appreciated if they had called at the very least a day prior to my reservation... But at least they called. The food was ok... But my husband got sick immediately after. Which I find unacceptable for a 55$ menu.

    Très bonne expérience au Vandale dans le cadre de Mtl à Table . Nous avons adoré les cocktails élaborés par le bar . Le Carpaccio de bœuf était juste un pur délice. Nous avons également adoré le jarret d’agneau et la pannacotta . On reviendra pour goûter tous les autres plats du menu régulier ! Excellent restaurant au vieux port .

    Cocktails géniaux a essayer en attendant l’entrée ou en passant par la sans manger. Présentation des plats très raffinés. Excellentes entrées, bon goût. Ambiance différente et stimulante. Un peu bruyant si vous voulez discuter tranquille.

    This is a fantastic dinner experience in Montreal. The cocktails are incredibly well designed and the craftsmanship is outstanding. Prices are very reasonable for the value delivered. The portion sizes are deceiving though - I do not think each diner needs 2 to 3 dishes. We 2 ordered 4 dishes and honestly were full after 2. We forced the third down, and couldn't eat more than a bite of the 4th.

    Very fresh, inventive seafood (other meats and vegetarian options as well) served in smaller portions at this hip restaurant on the edge of the Old City. When one of the six oysters we ordered was very tiny and attached to another shell, so perhaps only one oyster, the server brought us two more. We are in our seventies but felt comfortable in the space and glad we didn't choose one of the larger, more well-known restaurants in the area.

    Our server was fabulous! Bartender brought the wrong drink and she caught it and corrected so quickly and before we noticed! She was bubbly and enjoyed helping us. The food was great! Oyster and paella were so yummy! So was the cod!! I loved the decor and ambiance! Would recommend and will return

    As oyster lovers, we jumped on the Thursday special. Also a reduced price white wine. As described by others, the ratatouille was excellent in both taste and presentation, also the beets with 3 scallops. But I am still savoring the 2 dozen oysters in which I indulged! The decor is reminiscent of a place we visited in Melbourne, Australia -- modern poster art -- Anthony Bourdain on one wall.

    My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Le Vandale. The staff were super friendly & knowledgeable of their wine selection. The cocktails, Le Vandale & Down the Rabbit hole, were amazing. Our plates, La Charcuterie/ Huitres fraiches/ Crevettes Nordiques, were amazing. The Tiramisu & Crème brûlée were the perfect touch to end our evening. I haven't had such an amazing meal in years.

    I was excited to try this restaurant! However, it was quite hot inside (I know they can’t help that there’s a heatwave in Montreal but still- a fan would help! It was so hot it certainly squashed any appetite we had coming in to the restaurant). The service was pretty mediocre- we were told over and over again about how small the plates we and that we’d need to order many plates to be full— but the plates weren’t that small actually! We felt a bit pressured to order more than we would’ve. The food was just ok; the balance was off (three scallops and a whole giant plateful of beets?) Anyway, the ambiance (minus the extreme heat and the pressure from the server) was pretty cool. Everything else was in the solid “meh” category.

    The ambience was good but the service was poor. We had to call a server we spotted that was just standing there not doing anything to which he responded 'coming' and still stood there until he wanted to come. He also didn't dress like a waiter, he was just wearing a regular tee and made it so that we didn't feel like he was part of the restaurant which made us think he mightve been the owner. We ordered the $1 oysters, 12 each and a cocktail. My friend got a bad oyster and we immediately left after just the appetizers because the experience overall wasn't great. The only great take away from the restaurant was its lovely hostess but got ruined when the guy in the tee (our waiter) was loudly telling her from across the room when we asked to be seated in a corner seat instead of the one she suggested or led us to that we couldn't because the table wasn't clean. "It's not clean! It's not clean". I reassured her that we were in no hurry and not to stress. She was apologetic and I felt bad for her. I'm not one to ever write reviews bit this place left a really sour taste in my mouth and we don't mean the bad oyster that was given to us, so we just left and went to poutinefest because we refused to spend more money in a place that felt like it didn't care about its patrons. Thanks!
