Need reservation for 8 people on Sat...

We are a group of 30-somethings (some former MTLers, some visitors), reuniting this weekend to celebrate a birthday. In the past we've eaten at Chasse et Peche, L'Express, Au Petit Extra, Pinxco (sp??) and many others, including the see-and-be-seen St Laurent scene, which we won't go back to. We're looking for a place with great food - probably French but could be creatively interpreted. In addition, it is a pretty lively group, so a fun atmosphere is certainly a plus. The challenge is that we need a reservation for eight people this Saturday. In terms of price, the places mentioned above are all fine - wouldn't be able to go to the absolute top of the cost. In terms of location, we are open to most things - Old Port, Plateau, downtown, etc, but probably want to stay on the island. Any thoughts for places that are likely to be able to accommodate our group?

  1. I would say the following are good bets as they meet your requirements, both may require reservations, especially Pop.

    Old Montreal: Holder
    Plateau: Pop
    Mile End: L'atelier [byob, very good]

        Thanks for the thoughts! I have been to Holder, and liked it, but didn't love it - (. not a lot of soul, I thought). I had thought about Laloux, but had never heard of Pop, which might be a fun alternative!
