I finally tried Leméac last week and I must say that I left with a very good first impression. Unfortunately, I only went for a quick meal and a glass of wine after a long day at work. (I did not get an entree or a dessert) In other words, the circumstances were not ideal and I could not get the true sense of the place. However, I can attest for the quality of the environment, the service and the food. The room is spacious and well lit, the ceilings are high and the windows are huge. It's looks like a big, neat and high-end restaurant. I did not sit there but the terrasse might be a place where one could enjoy spending a lot of time with friends on a warm summer night. The service was courteous and the recommended wine was appropriate. My girlfriend and I had a Pintade (small bird) and a bavette de boeuf. Both were of high quality.
To sum it up, I will definitely visit this place again, and I doubt anything could dissapoint me. My only concern involves the crowd. I am 28, I have been to several restaurant I rarely felt as young as I did while I was there. The clients seemed to come from this baby-boomers from Outremont mold and, though I might be one of them one day, I am still far from there. In that sense, it wasn`t as cosmopolitan as L'Express.
