About XO Le Restaurant
The French called Canada’s main financial thoroughfare "rue Saint-Jacques", and the English "St-James Street". Synonymous with opulence and influence, it was the second street in what is now Montréal. Bordered by banks and named after Jacques Olier, the street continues to be known today as a museum of high finance. Today, Hotel Le St-James, the former Merchants Bank, sits enthroned at the crossroads of history. On midsummer nights, modern-day coachmen in top hats take us back a hundred years to a day when bankers glanced at their pocket watches while crossing rue St-Jacques to the stock exchange and central telegraph offices just blocks away.
XO Le Restaurant, situated in the former Banker's Hall, is truly a beautiful space composed of a dining room, a bar & lounge, two beautiful mezzanines, as well as four alcoves which add an extra touch of comfort and privacy. Chef Robillard's exciting culinary imagination brings you modern, creative French cuisine.

XO Le Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We have been going to this restaurant every summer for the past 3 years when we come to Montreal. Food in the past was excellent. There was 3 of us at dinner this time and all 3 of us found that the food was not as good as the previous 3 years. Don't know if they the changed the chef or what, but we all ate different meals and all 3 of us felt that it was nowhere near as good as in the past. Service was still very good as previous years.
Major disappointment! The three colossal olives in our martinis were more of a distraction than the intended generous garnish. The cold pasta appetizer was bland and definitely not worth the carb intake. Apparently leaving most of it untouched failed to deliver a message to anyone on staff. The clam chowder, while inventive in concept, failed in its execution; "potatoes three ways" all shared the characteristic of being unpleasantly undercooked. As a departure from most of the meal, the flat iron steak was braised to perfection. The accompanying hassleback potatoes needed to be reheated as they were served stone cold. The intent of the bacon jam (aka diced bacon) stuffed crab apple was not apparent as it did not harmonize with the meal (perhaps better served with a pork dish). We were graciously comped with two desserts which were both delicious, although the mousse was challenging to eat due to its serving container - a narrow mouthed canning jar. And yes, while we are apparently outdated in that we dress up when dining, but slashed jeans on a middle aged woman and a t shirt (aka underwear) on a young man - really? XO = crossed off our list of dining destinations.
An absolutely fantastic atmosphere with delicious, very presented and extremely unique plates. Pricey for a normal dinner, but not unreasonable for a fine dining experience like this. The perfect choice for our special occasion (a graduation dinner). We would certainly return.
I came to XO for a weekend brunch, and wasn't disappointed. The croissant was warm and delectable, and the 3-course brunch was very filling and flavorful. The restaurant itself is luxurious and beautifully decorated. It's not cheap, but great for a special occasion or tourist.
One of the best dinner experiences I have had. Service was excellent - friendly, polite & knowledgeable. We had the tasting menu, along with the wine pairings. This was so fun and a real adventure. The music and setting was ideal. Loved it. Felt like I was somewhere far away from all the noise and hustle of real life, just for an evening. Thoroughly enjoyed our night out. Thank you
We had a wonderful time, an excellent brunch in beautiful surroundings with very courteous and discreet service.
From the moment we arrived with valet parking, they were attending to our needs.
There is a comfortable space between tables which invites private conversation. It is refreshing to find a restaurant who seems to have time to be at the service of their guests.
Un des plus beaux restaurant à Montréal. Malheureusement, le prix des plats est exagéré pour les portions. Nous étions 8 personnes et on a tous été très déçus de la quantité dans nos assiettes. La facture était de plus de 350$ pour 2 et on avait encore faim!
My husband and I went to the XO restaurant to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. The decor is very beautiful but the service is inexperienced and untrained. The main course took over 40 min to be served and when it came it was cold! Great disappointment!
Nous y sommes allés lors de l'événement Montréal à Table. Super beau menu. Service impeccable, repas succulents et bien présentés. Tout était délicieux. Le dessert, Trompe-l'oeil au chocolat, était surprenant et excellent. Nous recommanderons ce resto et y retournerons certainement. Quelle belle soirée !
The decor is Old Europe type, It reminded me of some beautiful halls I saw in Budapest, with the high ceilings and grandiose finishings. The service was great, our waiter Massimo was warm, friendly and gave us good service. The food was really delicious and original. I brought my mum there for her birthday and she really enjoyed every course. Lovely evening all in all.
