First time to Montreal and would like to hit some high points, restaurant-wise. We are staying at the Gault but are completely open to going outside the area for good food. Prefer casual dining rather than 3 hour 5 star evenings but price is not an issue. Atmosphere a plus but stuffy not enjoyable. Like up and coming restaurants but not trendiness over true quality. Made reservations at L'Express but don't know much about it-got a good review elsewhere. Have Wed evening to Sunday morning to experience the food of Montreal. ANy help is appreciated.

  1. There are lots and lots of threads in the last few weeks for your request.

    You should check out, for dinner:
    -Le Pied de Cochon
    -Joe Beef
    -L'Épicier (could also be done for lunch)

    -Olive & Gourmando
    -Marché Jean-Talon...

    1. Thanks so much. Am reviewing threads now and appreciate your advice. Looking forward to Montreal and some wonderful food...

      1. Another one that will make the list often is : L'atelier ( on st-laurent )

          I totally second L'Atelier too...I am a big fan of the place as well!

          1. Can't go wrong with Au pied du Cochon on duluth street
