quiet restaraurant in Montreal on a Sunday night

I 've been looking through previous threads, at restaurants that would be open on a Sunday night. I am organizing a dinner for 5 people this Sunday, and would be interested in a restaurant where there is very little background noise.

These are a few of the restaurants I'm considering
Le Continental

We'll be staying at the Sofitel; I have eaten at Renoir before, so that is another option, but I was hoping to find a restaurant that wouldn't be in a hotel.

Also, can anyone recommend a quiet restaurant serving good traditional Quebec cuisine?

Thanks for any suggestions!

  1. Lemeac is my suggestion,
    you can't do wrong, the place is really beautiful in a quiet/elegant part of town, (Outremont)
    just check if they are open.

      Lemeac is open on Sundays virtually all day, but how quiet it is would depend greatly on the time of day and whether you were on the terrace or inside. I've only eaten there at off hours like 4:30 and it has been nice and quiet, but I have heard it can get noisy when they are full. Likewise I've heard Laloux can get noisy when full.

      I like quiet restaurants, so I would like to hear some more suggestions (Sunday or not)for quiet French or Italian restaurants.

        Yes. At 11 p.m. on a Thursday night in mid-July, you had to raise your voice to be heard across the table. Like most Montreal bistros, there's hardly a sound-absorbing surface in sight.

    2. I'm a big fan of Jolifou. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is very quiet but not stuffy in any way.

      1. La Montee de Lait perhaps in the Le Plateau area. Just off St. Denis on Villeneuve (Mont-Royal metro station).
