"I've gone to this restaurant multiple times in the past and it was great. This time however, it was not. According to the waitress they changed the chef. Not the best idea apparently because the food was mediocre at best. Nothing special at all. I used to like going there for the interesting menu options, but now you can pretty much go to any restaurant and get the same menu, at least it would taste better. And for the price you pay here, totally not worth it."

"Old Montreal has a memorable gem in L'Original. We went due to the great reviews -- and get to add our own. They specialize in game/meats, but half our party went for their great fish entree. The venison tartar was so awesome that our teenage son opted for a second plate for his dessert (versus the wonderful traditional sweet offerings the rest of us shared!). Decked out in mountain cabin-style decor, the ambiance is cozy without being a cliche. One of our party has food allergies to gluten, dairy and nuts -- the chef checked on him directly and provided wonderful options."

"Almost hidden on a little side street in Old Montreal, this was a fantastic place for our last dinner in the city. The service was excellent and if you're visiting the city, this restaurant definitely makes you feel like you've gotten some authentic Québécois fare."

"This place has a really warm vibe. Very friendly service by the owner himself, great decor, awesome 70s music. The menu is fairly limited, but everything we had was delicious - leave room for their version of smores!"

"Great friendly knowledgable service once again, but the food was perhaps a notch below our last visit. Still good value though, but we missed the more "gamey" menu prior to the renovations."

"My first time to the most delicious Canadian restaurant I've ever been to. The food is unbelievable..... The staff is as friendly as can be and the drink list is perfect. My girlfriend wanted something different to drink with out any specifics and the bartender came to our table to get a better idea of what she wanted and came up with a delicious drink just for her. Although this restaurant is not the cheapest, I'd definitely recommend it for any special occasion and the food is worth the price. I will definitely be back with my girlfriend, and also in small groups. DELICOUS."

"The service was good and the food was good, but boy, was it noisy! In this price range (~$30 for a dish) I usually expect a quite place where one can spend a few hours comfortably. This place is more like a bar. The setting is North-American (moose, plaid shirts and such), which I am fine with, but if you are looking for "traditional French" for a romantic evening, go somewhere else, like to Bonaparte :)."

"Oysters were good, venison tartare was quite good not at all gamey. Rabbit liver pate was quite goo too. We went reading many good review about their bone marrow which is no longer on offer. There's apparently been a chef change."

"A lovely little place with a nice bar and a friendly, and family friendly, atmosphere. A ravioli special (with fois gras and duck) was rich and well prepared. A pork schnitzel with traditional spätzle was very well done too. The oysters were very good and fresh tasting with some fresh horse radish on the side. Service was friendly.
Not a Michelin star experience, but a good, solid well prepared meal. Nothing wrong with that."

"Fantastic experience at a low key restaurant- 5 star food and service without an uppity attitude.
To begin with, the oysters were fresh and delicious- loved the freshly grated horseradish on the side. The venison tartare was amazing- the meat was fresh and the flavor was perfect. The crispy toast was a perfect vessel for it. For our shared entree, we split the schnitzel which was delicious, though it was rather on the thick side. The mushroom spätzle it was served with was also amazingly delicious.
We would definitely return if we ever visit Montreal again.
The drinks were tasty-fresh flavors and strong. The voyager martini with gin and grapefruit flavors was my favorite.
We would definitely return to this wonderful, cozy restaurant if we ever visit Montreal again."

"We had an absolute great time at L'Orignal, great service, great food, great wine. The staff and owner are also great company they chatted to us, made us laugh. The piece of bison I had from the daily special was delicious and my wife loved there fries and bavette.
We would definitely go back, and recommend it."

"I was sorely disappointed with the customer service, considering how high end the restaurant is. 2 minutes after having ordered drinks/dessert, we were told we had to pay and leave. I'm not sure how long it takes people to normally finish a glass of wine or a scotch, but generally more than 5 minutes. basically we were told we had to leave because the second service was coming and the table was reserved. While i have no problem with that, i do have a problem with the fact that they didn't tell us at the beginning and waited until we ordered more stuff to let us know we were being kicked out. was not offered a seat at the bar either. The waitress didn't even come tell us, they had someone else come inform us we were required to pay and when i asked why we weren't told in advance she basically said i don't know but its really too bad for you, you need to leave. Not impressed at all."
