Le Chien Fumant Ratings and Reviews

As the wind was whipping up a storm outside, we were snug as bugs inside the warm and cozy decor. Laden with deep rich tones, the fragrances coming from the open kitchen were inviting and we couldn't wait to order. The menu was subdued but elegant, the fish and meats cooked to perfection. The wine list was varied and plentiful. The barman was experienced and recommending great drinks before hand. This jewel in the heart of Montreal's french quarters (Le Plateau) is by far a favorite of mine and I would gladly recommend it to all my out of town friends (which I have!).

While on a visit to Montreal, I kept walking by front window of this great neighbourhood spot and the energetic pull of this place was too hard to resist. They are open only in the evenings until late, so it took a few tries before I was actually able to sample the menu, but it was absolutely worth the wait.
The ambiance of the restaurant feels at once vibrant, comforting and intimate...a balance that is often hard to achieve in combination with throwback hip hop and a packed-to-the-gills room...but somehow, they did it.
The menu is a curated mix of local and hearty. Bring a date who has an appetite.
Alongside the great menu, the service was attentive, genial and always on point. A definite recommend.

Pour le brunch, nous avons pris la côte de veau pour deux, avec bacon, œufs miroirs, écrasé de pommes de terre, girolles et scarole. Tout était délicieux et plein de saveurs. Cuisson parfaite pour la viande. Tellement satisfaits que nous avons pris un dessert en plus !

We really wanted to like this place. It is very French-bistro charming, and the servers were nice. My entrée and plat were good, but my husband's choices were not well-prepared, especially the fish, which was supposed to be swordfish, but was not, and was served swimming in oily fried pepperoncini and eggplant. His strawberry tarte was just okay, but my nougat glacée was not frozen and was served on a cold, chewy cream puff. The wine list was extremely expensive, especially compared to the quality of the food. Too bad, because we spend a lot of time in this neighbourhood and wanted to make it one of our regular stops.

Our second trip to Le Chien Fumant. Our first visit was fantastic. Perfectly paced evening, great food, lived up to our expectations.
This year, same great food but the service was poor. We asked after ordering that the courses be paced out and then the three courses were all delivered at the same time. She took the main course back and brought it back later but it wasn't hot. On top of that, we had to make 3 selections of a wine till we found one in stock. The restaurant doesn't seem to be concentrating as much on quality as it was getting us out the door for the next seating.

Dans l'ensemble, tout était délicieux. Cependant, j'ai trouvé que l'avocat se faisait rare dans mon entrée de salade tomates, avocat et pita grillé. Aussi, j'aurais aimé qu'il y ait plus de sauce dans mon plat de fazzoletti au homard, mais ça, c'est parce que je suis "du type sauce"... :-) Par contre, côté quantité homard, c'était plutôt généreux. Finalement, le sandwich crème glacée était dément. :-)
this was one of my best food memories of all time
this place was great. i screwed up our reservation and we arrived on the wrong day, but they seated us anyway despite being quite full. the menu was great and the chef's selections were out of this world. literally every dish was rave worthy. thanks!

The food was amazing, except the millanaise veal was a little bit too salty. It was the best gnocchi I tasted my entire life though! I definitely recommend this restaurant, always. It is my favourite place to celebrate and I like its small cozy atmosphere.
Repas au Chien Fumant
Excellente cuisine et très bon service en général, bien que nous nous sentions un peu pressé de libérer notre table pour accueillir de nouveaux clients. Il faut comprendre que le resto ne compte qu'environ une cinquantaine de places. J'aurais aussi aimé une plus grande sélection de vins entre $60 et $75.
À pied ou en métro
Belle place, accueillante.
Par contre, j'ai trouvé ordinaire de me faire exiger un dépôt de 30$ sur carte de crédit pour confirmer ma réservation...
J'ai compris pourquoi ce dépôt quand je cherchais un stationnement (25 minutes !)... après 10 minutes à tourner en rond je serais aller souper ailleurs n'eut été de la perte de ce dépôt de 30$...
Je le sais mais je me fais prendre encore... : quand on veut souper au resto, on oublie le Plateau !
Go for tapas and ambiance
Great ambiance but two main courses were disappointing. The (most expensive) lamb dish was not moist, as you'd expect, and the pulled pork dish should have bin called a chickpea dish with pork garnishing (very moist and flavourful though). We noticed that a number of other tables were simply ordering appetizers and drinks and, in fact, the appetizers we had were creative and delicious! Cozy setting. Great date spot. Nice service.
Le chien fumant is a HOT dog
We love le chien fumant for its laid back atmosphere. The cooking team clearly knows what they're doing, serving amazingly fresh and inventive cuisine that borrows as much from Japan and Korea as Italy, France, or even Lebanon. Unpretentious, delicious, and cool!
