Booked last minute but, being Halloween, there was lots of availability. It was by far the best & most enjoyable meal in 3 full days in Montreal. Lovely attentive welcome from the owner & his family & staff who could not have been more friendly...or helpful. The menu & wine list were superb and the food was utterly delicious. We both had the Menu Of The Day which offered good value & interesting choices. The Involitini Di Melanze & Vitello Del Giorno were especially good. Try the several wines by the glass too to complement the courses. Highly recommended & excellent central location.More

We take an annual mini holiday to Montreal just to savor its excellent food. We found this gem by sheer luck and it was the best restaurant we have visited there. It is rare that a restaurant achieves a perfect score on atmosphere, service and...food quality. Le Muscadin achieves all three. It is rare to find any business that focuses on doing the little things right from hand slicing prosciutto at your table to handing the ladies a rose on the way out. We both had the table d'hote and started off with the pasta appetizer. My wife had the shrimp and asparagus risotto while I had the veal scallopini. Both dishes were outstanding. My wife claimed the tiramisu was best she has eaten. The only drawback was that we found this gem on the last day of our holiday.More

The best! This was my first meal at Le Muscadin and it won’t be my last. Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was welcoming, friendly, and professional. Bruschetta, salad, risotto with perfectly cooked scallops, and a cannolo!

We hadn't been to Le Muscadin in several years. Have we ever missed out! The service, food, and atmosphere is worth the price. We had the barley soup, meatballs, the seafood risotto, and the penne in a rosee-pepper sauce. All was wonderful. We will return.

Just the sort of personal touch that is hard to find these days. Owner gave everything a fine touch. Fun and jovial personality. Atmosphere was cozy in sense that it was full of couples and families. Servers were excellent, knowledgable, and genuinely friendly. Interior was...basic but clean and intimate. Food was unbelievably tasty & fresh.More

Excellent food, wide variety, large portions, friendly and inviting ambiance and amazing staff. We love the restaurant and try to get reservations when in Montreal...It never disappoints.

We asked a local for a recommendation and this did not disappoint!! The restaurant was right in Old Montreal, just steps from our fav coffee shop. The restaurant was beautiful, tucked into the building ….elegant. Table settings were beautiful. The green salads were the freshest….and...served with complementary bruschetta that was seasoned perfectly. Olive oil was the finest. Our pasta dishes were authentic; penne romanoff and linguini carbonara. Portions were very generous for even the most hungry. We followed with cannoli which was also of finest quality and authentic with crispy outside and perfect creamy inside with mini chips. Soooo good. Don’t miss this jewel. It is pricey, but workers every dollar!More

Incredible experience. They even made the Covid passport check experience enjoyable. From the moment you’re greeted to the time you leave, you feel welcome, and your business is appreciated. We just had a dreadful experience the night before at Vieux Port, so they really helped...to end our trip on the highest note possible. The food was excellent, with service to match all the way from the owner to the bus staff. And who doesn’t love wine classes as big as your face!More

Our party fully enjoyed our dining experience. The food was EXCELLENT. The service OUTSTANDING. The experience was as if you had been invited to your Sicilan friend’s grandparents home for a formal Italian dinner. White linen table cloths and perhaps decor from the 90’s?

This restaurant has been a solid presence in Montreal for 30+ years and are now in a new location. It's been under the same family ownership since it first opened its doors and the owner greets you when you walk in. It has a vibe...of the old-school New York Italian family hospitality (without the mob feel) but it's not dated. The food is fresh and delicious and the owner and his staff attentive and gracious without being intrusive. Can't wait to go back!More
