Montréal Eats: L’Express

This is one of the most well-known French bistros in town.  Decor is a traditional French bistro with the ornate bar and the black and white checkered floor.  The service was polite and efficient.  The food is hit or miss for me.  I think it’s a good spot if you’re looking for a Paris bistro type place, but keep in mind that there are many other great bistros in Montreal.  Reservatins are highly recommended as this place is almost always fully packed.

My ratings: ❤❤❤
Price range: $$-$$$

Os à moille – gros sel
It was good but this was really really rich.  You get a lot of bone marrow from each piece of bone.  The coarse salt seemed a bit too overpowering.  I didn’t quite enjoy this famous appetizer.

Sauté de canard confit avec salade
It was quite delicious, but it didn’t blow me away.  I thought the salad was a bit too greasy and the duck was on the dry side.

Risotto aux crevette
Please be aware that there’s lobster in the sauce, which was not clearly stated on the menu.

Cailles rôties et riz sauvage
I was pleasantly surprised that the quails were very juicy and moist.
