Love Les Faux Bourgeois! Noisy and fun dining with patrons dining until late evening. Steak and pommes frites perfectly cooked, cassoulet delicious and the creme brulee crispy and smooth texture and wonderful flavour. Good selection, attentive staff and an ever busy restaurant that is well worth a short cab ride from downtown.

Thank Judy H

This small dark restaurant is located in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood. Reservations are highly recommended. We came on a Tuesday evening & the restaurant was full. We saw several people get turned away. Service was very good. Staff at the restaurant can speak both french & english. The french onion soup was flavourful & heavy. The goat salad was tasty. The duck confit was fall of the bone good. The bouillabaisse was just ok, it tasted bland. The beef tenderloin was delicious, it was cooked perfectly. Desserts were yummy. We enjoyed the chocolate mousse, creme brulee, & lemon tart. Portion sizes were decent. Food was reasonable priced. There is free street parking in front of the restaurant. This is a lovely restaurant. I would dine here again.

I came here for my birthday celebration and enjoyed my dinner very much. Good wine, and good sized portion of excellent quality. Our table of 4 shared escargot, mussels and I had the duck confit. Very nice as always. Street parking available but sometimes you have to circle a bit.

Great french home style food! And they have escargot bourguignon! I have them every time since they are not easy to find out here. I have been with small and large groups and the food and service were always perfect. The duck confit will melt in your mouth. Don't be put off by the location it really is a hidden gem. Tip: make a reservation

This is a small restaurant and you absolutely need a reservation to get in. The tables are placed very close together and I found it difficult to get out from table without bumping into the people at the next table. And because the restaurant is small and was packed and cramped, it was very noisy and we had to talk very loudly to be heard.

The men each ordered a salad for an appetizer and the steak frites. When you order a main, it does not come with sides, so if you want vegetables, mushrooms, or other sides they are all extra cost. The steak frites was just that...a steak with gravy and a bunch of fries. Good, but not extraordinary.

I ordered one of the specials, scallops with risotto. The scallops were delicious, cooked to perfection and the risotto was very nice, not too gooey like some can be.

The service was prompt and friendly. It was definitely a nice meal, but because of the cramped seating I don't think we would go back.
