Lawrence Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

The food is sublime and meticulously prepared. The wait and bar staff are superb and some of the best I've ever encountered. On the downside, once you eat a Lawrence you'll be ruined for almost every other restaurant.

This was our first visit to Lawrence and it didn't disappoint. Between us, we tried the fish and seafood platter, the fish stew, the cassoulet for two, and the Sussex pudding, plus a couple of their signature cocktails. Everything was great. It was also a good value considering the quality of the food. Will definitely go back.

Awesome food, awesome service and I love the location too. I wish they also had some dishes for non-experimental type since I'm allergic to seafood and fish too. They were very accommodating with the dishes for me! One of my favorite spots in Montreal, the wines are very good and unique import. The staff is great! Keep up the great work and smile!

Restaurant absolument décevant alors que soi-disamment sa réputation devrait en faire une des meilleures tables de Montréal. Nourriture ordinaire, apparence des assiettes décevante et nourriture à peine tiède. Beaucoup trop onéreux, y compris les vins. Dessert brûlé partiellement. Le froid régnait, nos compagnes étaient frigorifiées. Si on compare, parmi les dix meilleures tables de Montréal (duquel Le Lawrence se réclame !) avec le Toqué., c'est une insulte pour le Toqué.

Service moyen, peu expérimenté, pas très confiante a propos de la liste de vins. Nourriture excellente, prix un peu cher et vestibule inexistant. Les tables près de la porte gèlent et demandent toutes à être déplacés.

We had a lovely dinner here mid-week. We were a group of nine and were able to hear each other talk and felt like the meal was nicely paced and never felt rushed. The food was good to very good with several dishes outstanding. Wine and beer drinkers in our group were all happy with the selections. For good food, a warm and comfortable ambiance, and great service, Lawrence Restaurant is a good choice.

My gal and I were in Montreal for our first visit, and were fortunate to find Lawrence. Refined without being pretentious, we had a lovely meal presented by a consistently gracious staff. High marks to our server Meredith for making this one of our most memorable meals of 2016. A gem!

Great service! except the waitress didn't know how to select wine.
Way too much salt in the main dish, way too much vinaigre in the salad, red wine served way too warm....
For this price, you can eat much better elsewhere in Montreal!
I would go back for all the staff! but not the food... too bad...

A lovely dining experience from A to Z. After some delicious cocktails and yummy home made bread, we sampled a variety of appetizers and main dishes.
Oysters, charcuterie, sturgeon, smoked eel, lamb and more. Each dish prepared with thought, attention to presentation and innovation. No room for dessert.
The Sommelier recommended a scrumptious Chardonnay which I actually went and bought for myself at the SAQ! Thanks for a great evening!

Everything was perfect: ambience, service, food, beverages, and value. We loved the attention to detail which was obvious in every dish, and we appreciated their "no big deal" attitude in accommodating our dietary restrictions. Just a simple lunch was made special by outstanding fried potatoes, tangy dressing on rich buttery salad greens, and the always unsurpassable soup. I must also give huge props to the dessert chef for a lighter-than-air cranberry meringue pie! I encourage everyone to go to Lawrence. This is an experience that will nurture you in every way!

I really enjoyed my dinner at Lawrence which was my first time. I started with 6 oysters from NS which were impeccable. We then shared with my two friends the octopus appetizer dish which was yummy. I then ate a grilled maquereau main dish (fish) which was delicious. the atmosphere was very nice. Service between the appetizer dish and our main dishes took quite long to arrive. The wine recommended (pinot noir) went went with all our dishes. Overall, a very nice evening with great food in a nice atmosphere. The restaurant was full at the time of visit.

Brutal service, slow and rude. Felt like particular bottle of wine was pushed on us (did you overstock? Honestly what it felt like). Server was rude and ignored us. Was our fifth time back so there has been enough to bring us back before but honestly this time I'm not so sure. We'll see in a few months but seems to be trending downwards.

Expertly crafted dishes that don't have too many ingredients to distract and annoy. Creativity and freshness that is unusual and reflected in the deep but subtle flavours. Simple dishes make very well; local ingredients used in pleasing combinations.

We really enjoyed our meal . I had heard many great things about the menu but it's was intimidating to me, I'm not an adventurous diner. The menu included items like flattened pigs head and heart. I'm glad I decided to go outside my comfort zone and try something new. It was delicious and well worth it.

We were introduced to Lawrence on a food tour of mile end. It is affiliated with the organic and sustainable butcher 2 doors down. We came back that night and it was our favorite food of the 5 day trip. 4 of us got double appetizers. Good onion soup, great corn and sturgeon soup, fresh side salad, the shredded rabbit with artichokes, olives and capers. The only one we would skip is the shrimp with grilled zucchini. Excellent fresh oysters and our favorite was the octopus nduja with a chorizo spread on toast. Yum. Ah but the other 2 had stellar entrees ! A huge dinner plate sized pork chop that was fork tender and melt in your mouth with the most amazing potatoes fried in beef fat! And the perfectly seasoned and cooked lamb with cauliflower and salt lemon was only a slightly smaller portion. Good wine selection, casual atmosphere, great service!

Finally went to see what all the hype has been about. I would go back but not for a main dish but rather a couple of appetizers. The two main dishes we had were not great: the lamb dish was not as tender as you'd expect nor as flavourful. The chicken liver and seaweed& pasta dish was moderately good. Service very pleasant though and a fantastic wine list.

The service, staff, and food are all perfect at Lawrence. The food is always amazing and the experience I was able to share with my friends will, for sure, be a lasting memory for all eleven of us. I look forward to dining at Lawrence every year, it absolutely never disappoints.
The beef tail for two with the corn risotto, by the way, is a dish I will surely never forget.

The food was very good, as was the wine. Service was also very good. Decor was kind of industrial grunge, not too bad nevertheless. The big problem was the incredibly high noise level. Hard to hear what others were saying. Hard to hear what you were saying yourself.

Je suis intolérante au gluten, malgré tout plusieurs choix m'ont été proposé ! Je pouvais choisir pratiquement dans tout le menu, ce qui est très rare! J'y retournerai, c'est certain !

Très agréable soiree passée au Lawrence. Les cocktails, entrées et plats principaux étaient tous de véritables plaisirs en bouche. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le service et la gentillesse de la sommelière qui nous permis de faire de belles découvertes.
