Great food in or near Westmount?

I am visitng for a few days and would like a great meal in the area. I am open to all food types and prices.

  1. IMO, Westmount is a dead zone in terms of restaurant;
    I work on the western edge, and there's nothing really worth it.

    Not far, but not walk-able, depending on where you are in Westmount, there's Joe Beef on Notre-Dame.

      Thanks. Can't make it there. What about Liverpool House, is it worth a visit?

        Kaizen is no good? How about The Tavern on The Square - it's not great, but it's not bad. Bistro on Greene Avenue does some fairly decent grub if you don't want to head too far. There's certainly no gourmet places, though.

      2. EDITED SO THIS MAKES SENSE: (thanks, pyropaul99!)

        What part of Westmount? Eastern edge close to downtown or Western edge adjacent to NDG? Are you willing to travel a little bit?

          LOVE Kaizen, just looking for a change. Have booked Taverne to try. I've had very inconsistent experiences on Greene, but in all honesty, that was two summers ago.

          I would go anywhere in Westmount, NDG, Montreal West or the West part of downtown. That being said, the closer the better.


        2. Tuck Shop is not far from Westmount - at Notre Dame and Courcelle. Every meal I've had there has been good.

          1. There's Wellhouse, which has decent food. If they have their fish and chips special, it's a must have dish.
            I also enjoy Seoul for Korean food. I've tried numerous Korean restaurants in this city and Seoul is by far my favourite.

            Both are on Sherbrooke St. near Vendome metro.

            1. The best in the area is Imadake, at Ste Catherine and Atwater, for Japanese. Skip Taverne, head south to Tuck Shop instead. It's far better IMHO, and less expensive.
