The food is excellent. The staff is even better. Busy, chaotic, and yes, the blackboard menu is an optical nightmare. That said, I have never seen a restaurant staff all so happy and helpful. Alex was an efficient conductor in a packed room(s) and seemed to have every customer in her radar. She even came running after me to say... More

We just had dinner at Joe but maybe our expectations were too high. We had an ambassador steak from today's board menu and lobster spaghetti. The quality of the steak was not so high as we expected. Some of the parts of the steak we were not able to chew. We love meat and if you ever had any steak... More

Hands done of best dining experience so far. Made a last minute reservation and sat a bar. Food was amazing and flavourful. Had the cowboy steak with bone marrow mashed potatoes. Server and staff were fantastic. I see why they are consistently ranked among the best restaurant in Canada and world. Compared to other similar restaurants in NYC or London,... More

We popped in without reservations and were given a seat at the bar within 10 minutes, which was a wonderful surprise! What struck me first was how friendly and genuinely excited by the food the staff are. We were guided through the chalkboard written menu (so much to choose from!) and settled on a seafood heavy course of dishes. The... More

First a tip: a reservation is a must and we did ours months in advance. The place is small but quaint. We went with two friends and it felt like a dinner party. The wait staff was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. They all had a very lengthy chalkboard menu memorized in addition to knowing amazing wine pairings to go... More

I've always liked the name of this place the look from outside and had heard good things apart from "expensive." Entering fills in the picture more,- twangy, classic Country ballads playing and quite full of happy people! I was determined not to be caught out without my glasses to read menu but--there are none! Everything's written on a big chalk... More

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
