The service was great and ambiance nice but not great. The most expensive, very ordinary hamburger I've ever had and the french fries that came with it were less than ok - dry and shriveled. Wifi is offered but so slow you don't want to...More

My husband came in for brunch, location was beautiful and the service was good. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with my eggs benedict. The poached eggs felt as if they came straight from the fridge, which is too bad, they looked beautiful. My husband's breakfast was...More

Went mid week and the place was half full. I had pork tenderloin that had delicious flavor but was overcooked and tough. Tried dessert.....maple pudding of some sort....fantastic. Effort was there...just fell a little short.

Enjoyed a late lunch here while touring Old Montreal. Great service and food in a pleasant setting. Shared a simple pasta carbonara and enjoyed two salads. A great little haven on a cold day.

Montreal the Grand French City at one of the entry points to English North America has lots of French bistros that will remind you of Paris. However, these Montreal Bistros can be quite expensive which is different from my memories of Paris where you could...More

The interior design of Vallier Bistro is pleasant which makes it a good choice for a professional meeting or a date. The food was great but it was slightly overpriced for something that was not sophisticated cuisine, maybe because it’s located downtown. The service was...More

The food was excellent and mid-priced. Lunch special for me was soup, stuffed pepper (quinoa) with a superb tomato sauce and fresh baguette. Plate-licking good. I was eyeing my friend's pasta dish and second-guessing myself on whether I had made the right decision. Very good...More

*UPDATE! Vallier now offers brunch on weekends!* Since April 2016, Vallier has a new look and includes a new concept : contemporary Montreal bistro. Vallier still offers its classics like the mac n' cheese and sheperd's pie, but has other new dishes. You'll see a lot of Quebec ingredients in our meals and cocktails, but also premium local beers on tap. All this without becoming too fancy. Vallier wants you to feel like you're sitting at your grandmother's table! Join us for brunch (on the weekends), lunch or dinner. We welcome reservations.
