Restaurant Le Slang Ratings and Reviews
Dining like a local. Le Slang is a local ...
Dining like a local. Le Slang is a local restaurant that was recommended to me by a Montreal friend. The food was terrific, casual but exquisitely prepared and presented. And the drinks are one of their sources of pride. The cocktails were perfect. And best hamburger EVER.
We have dined at Le Slang on more than a dozen occasions. It is consistently very good, and some dishes are phenomenal. The kitchen pays attention to the details. On the last visit I ordered meatballs as a starter, they were very good. However under the meatballs was a "broccoli slaw" - this was phenomenal. My girlfriend absolutely loves the tuna tartare. We always eat well here, the food is well prepared. The service is always very friendly and efficient.

I'm commenting here on two of my visits to Slang/Sabbaba, once with one friend and next with with two. My first friend had the salmon and enjoyed it enormously, taking home leftovers. The second two friends-- a couple who dine out frequently -- both had the grilled chicken, and one commented that she had never tasted such delicious chicken in her many years of eating out! Her husband had a glass of white wine , and commented to the maitre d' that not only was it excellent but great value for the quantity. We shared 5 tasty appetizers to start --all delicious! We finished with a dessert platter with gluten free chocolate cake and 3 kinds of ice cream sprinkled with fresh berries.
The music was also toned down to a very pleasant level; that had been my only complaint the first two times that I visited this restaurant. (Perhaps they read and responded to my review?!) I'm definitely going back!
Was a great find!
It was our first time at Le Slang and I have to say we were pleaseantly surprised.
The ambiance was great, and the service as well.
You must have the General Tao calamari it was awesome and the dips with warm pita to start outstanding!
We will defiantly be back sometime soon.

It's not the first time I went to this restaurant. I like the food, the ambiance, and the service is always friendly. But this last saturday, the volume of the music was so high that we couldnt speak normally, but shout to each other which increased the noise in the restaurant.
Easy to fix... and I'll return for sure

Food was excellent. First went with a friend (April 7/16) who ordered the Tuna Tartare. I ordered the Mediterranean Chicken and we shared an order of Lamb Chops. Both the chicken and lamb chops were mouth wateringly delicious. (I didn't taste the Tuna as I avoid raw fish, even in sushi. But my friend said it was excellent.) We shared the carrot cake for dessert but were so stuffed that we couldn't finish it. I found the pricing surprisingly reasonable given the quality (fine cuisine). Service was excellent, attentive, but not excessive, and very efficient. My one caveat is the music, which I found a bit too loud.
When I returned May 14, 2016 with another friend, we sat on the terrace which we both enjoyed because it is more conducive to conversation. Again the food was excellent: we had the Mediterranean Chicken which, again, was delicious with a very ample serving (I took half home). My friend had the market salad, as well as two side dishes, one of an eggplant salad confection and the other a walnut puree of which were scrumptious as well as ample. He took home leftovers as well. For dessert, we shared the chocolate fudge cake with ice cream and berries. My friend commented that he has rarely enjoyed chocolate cake as much as this one. Service was great throughout, our food came quickly, water glasses were filled in a timely fashion, etc. But it flagged a bit at the end, waiting for our dessert perhaps because we were the only ones sitting on the terrace. (It was quite cool that evening.) I plan to return again and try something different from the menu.
Very cool resto!
I've been to Le Slang many times and I LOVE it! The food is awesome and there's a dish for everyone. The staff is friendly (and funny!) and knows its menu. The best bloody Cesars EVER (actually all drinks are pretty great)! The atmosphere is both chill and lively. Go, you won't regret it!!!
Great food and service, not to mention ambience.
We went for dinner at the Slang on Saturday night, and we couldn't have picked a better place, the food was great, the ribs were delicious, the tuna tatar and the calamari were phenominal the service was outstanding. We truly enjoyed our experience and will definitely be going back soon.

We always love eating at Slang - food is delicious. But this particular evening was soooo loud we couldn't hear each other. In fact we left without coffee and dessert and went over to Starbucks to escape the noise. We'll opt for week day evenings in the future - Saturday night is not the scene we're looking for.

Love this place! Hip but not pretentious. Great food. Great music and great bar. Never had a bad experience yet. I've taken a few people there for the first time and they also were impressed !
Tuna tartare was delicious. Burrata creamy and decadent!
Great food , but noisy and service could be better
It was noisy, we wanted a nice dinner. But the place was rowdy with shouting from every corner. Being an interracial couple we noticed the black waiter was not friendly. He praticaly slammed our drinks on our table and hurried us to finish our food. We both look young for our age so it did not help us to get better service. The food was delicious! The other waitresses was nice but again she felt rushed and barely gave us time to finish sentence b4 she ran away. The food was awesome but if you are looking for a romantic dinner it is not the place.
Muah! (kisses fingertips)
The food was sublime. I had an eggplant parmesan appetizer that was so good I had to make my friend try it because she's Italian. Then I had a flank steak with mashed potatoes that was out of this world. The steak was a bit chewy, but the mash was perfect and the sauce it was served with was awesome. I tried my friend's seafood pappardelle because I had been tempted to order it myself. One taste and I was glad I didn't order it. It was just too spicy (and I like hot stuff) to appreciate the complexity of flavours and textures. Or maybe my tastebuds were still blissing out over my main course. We were too stuffed to consider ordering dessert, and that's saying something. Our waiter was a hoot and the other staff were very personable. The music is great, but it's a teensy bit too loud for a restaurant IMHO. This was my second visit and I would go back again. Definitely a restaurant I would recommend to others.
Overall, this place is awesome
We went for an all-girl's dinner and had a great time. Our waitress was awesome; attentive but not over-bearing. It felt like every time we took a sip of water, our glasses were refilled by a staff member. The food was very good - I had the beet salad to start (only 2 small goat cheese croquettes which is my only complaint) and the lamb chops as a main. Literally the best lamb chops ever! My friends also really enjoyed their meals. Not a cheap outing but with food that good, I wasn't upset when the bill came. With tip and tax, it came to just over $70 for 1 cocktail + starter + main. I'd definitely go again :)
Date night in a high energy restaurant
Being locals to the Monkland area we have been meaning to try Slang for a while, ideally back when the terrace was out in the summer but being busy we finally made it during the colder season.
The place was bigger than expected and interesting choices on the food menu, I'd say there was something for everyone, without there being too much choice.
Great place and will most likely come again but with a group of people, not really convinced it's for a couples night out.
Good service, good food. Fun bar.
The celery root remoulade was a bit over dressed and too creamy (kind of swimming in the mayonnaise dressing) but other than that the food was good; service good but they take your food away way too quickly and sometimes a bit abruptly. Lamb chops were good but would have liked a little zing from some lemon or something. Nice, fresh oysters.
Disasters after disasters
Delicious food and terrible service. We waited 1h15 for our table. When we asked if they would offer us some kind of complimentary drinks for the wait they said "even if I offer you something it won't change anything so no". The waiter was dancing instead of taking our order and making sure we had everything we need. The wine was warm as tea. They served us black burned bread with the burrata and finally the busboy took away our plates when there was still food in it and when we said we weren't done, his response was: relax. Even if the food was good, I wouldn’t recommend unless something changes.
Ok, but expensive for what you get
A trendy place - trendy staff, trendy menu. Terrace was great. Food arrived before the drinks, wine list was late, and food was good, but for the price we expected great. Wouldn't go back, unless they put more effort to raise the level of the food, or adjusted their prices
Pleasantly surprised !
Pleasantly surprised. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. A little pricey but well worth the extra money. Unfortunately, my slang burger was undercooked which left me waiting for a new one. The waitress apologized and spoke to the chef who made me a new one. Even with the mishap, Will definitely come back!
