Hi everyone,
I've left it a little late for getting a table for dinner tonight .... could anyone recommend a mid price (15-25 for a main) resto in downtown/ griffintown / plateau / old montreal that either doesn't require reservation or is likley to have room?
The style of cuisine doesn't matter as long as it's something that you've enjoyed.
I've already tried Le Filet (closed on Monday), Brasserie T & F Bar (no space), Kazu (weather's pretty poor and not wanting to line up in the rain).

    I always like Griffintown Cafe. If possible, i'd call to make a reservation though.

      Griffintown is closed on Mondays. Lemeac is open Mondays and is excellent. Imadake as cherylmtl suggested is fun, but it sounds like run_mtl is looking for something a bit more refined.
      How many in your group?

      Not sure if any of them are open tonight, but you could try Imadake or Holder.

          Not sure if its too late now and you already found a place but - in the downtown area I would recommend Fino (corner of Guy and Sherbrooke). Have been there 3 times now and each time everyone in my party has really enjoyed their dishes. Recommend: beef rib, gnocchi, burger, salmon, pasta primavera, calamari. Mid-priced, very attentive service. Too bad its rainy because the terrasse is really lovely.
