Super hip and happening modern venue - with a solid menu of pleasing QC fusion with American (and several countries) bistro cuisine - inspired cocktails, and selection of wines. Staff were enthusiastic and engaging for visitors to Montreal (in my case English speaking). Super fun space & music.

I try to stop here for dinner at least once - sometimes twice- every time I am in Montreal. The staff is always friendly, the food is very good and the atmosphere is terrific.

This really is the same as eating at any other gay bar turned eatery. Service was fine, music was loud, and lots to look at.

Let's face it, good eye candy but after several visits the food ranges from average to not good. Ordered the pizza for a change, the worst I ever had. Way better choices than this within a short walk

I have been to Saloon for couple of times, for breakfast, lunch and supper, it's always great and delicious food, lots of choices, service with a smile. I'm wanted to take my friend to a unique place, to have fun and enjoy great food, everything was excellent. Love the decoration and ambiance.

I've been to Montreal 3 times...and each time, we have at least one dinner at Le Saloon.If you're hanging out on St Catherine, in the Village, I think a meal at Saloon is almost a given. Lively atmosphere, great drinks and an extensive selection of food to pick from make it a crowd pleaser. We've always left happy.

Le Saloon seems to have it all: imaginative cocktails, exquisite cuisine, and an atmosphere that stimulates the eyes and the ears. Neither of us were hungry, having had a large lunch, but neither of us left anything on the plate either. I started with a "Saloon Cesar," their own version of a Bloody Mary which was probably the best drink... More

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighbourhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomised by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
