For good drinks and good food, L'Assommoir offers flavors from here and there, cocktails and wine, tapas, ceviches, tartares and from the grill, as a couple or between friends, enjoy it sooner and later!
Les prix sont très abordables et l'ambiance est super
c'est cool c'est original
Bonne musique aimée de tous, bon venu varié de tartares, ceviche, martinis, bonne viande, délicieux desserts, à essayer !
J'ai adoré mon expérience à l'assomoir. Quantitée de cocktails incroyables et différents. Super génial. Le martini au basilic est vraiement génial et bon: Le royaume de la "mixologie" ! Les plats servis (il me semble qu'il ne s'agissait que de petits plats "entrées" genre: Petites brochettes marinés, calmars, etc...) étaient bons mais chers et... petits. Un peu formule "tapas", genre... Je ne trouve pas que c'est un endroit pour manger, mais disons que pour grignoter en sirotant un cocktail c'étais très très bien. J'ai personnellement trouvé que les prix étaient corsés. Outremont oblige !Sortez votre porte-feuille si vous voulez y sortir assomé (ce que j'ai fais en passant ! Ahahahahah !)
Vraiment cool comme place! Le décor, la musique bref l'ambiance globale! une bouffe de qualité et on s'en tire avec des factures très abordables!... #1 Bravo!!!
L'ambiance, les drinks de toutes sortes... Sans oublié la qualité de la nourriture, la présentation et les prix! Une expérience unique et inoubliable!!! Vraiment, faut y aller...!
L'ambiance est agreable, il y a parfois des spectacles, comme un groupe de jazz par exemple.
La nourriture est tres bonne mais ce n'est pas donné! Mieux vaut réserver pour s'assurer d'avoir une table.
La cuisine est ouverte ! Le show des Barman est super. La bouffe est un peu dispendieuse mais l'ambiance vous fera vite oublier le tout ! Une carte avec des centaines de Martinis. Un conseil : Réservez avant d'y aller

Great bartender. Food is ok.. but bartender makes it much better. Fun laid back place for drinks and a good time. Trendy chic.. liked it a lot!
I'm going to try and not be too polarized here but this place misses the mark hard, especially for the mile-end area (that has a lot of interesting places to course from). The prices are substantially inflated on an uninspired menu. I didn't try to many of the drinks but that's because I ordered an old fashioned (with a $10 tag) and when I asked it be made with Makers brought the price of the... more
We just had a party with 28 adults and 12 kids, everything went without a hitch. GREAT SERVICE (amicable, compliant and professional) Mathieu the Hôte for the night made sure we had everything we needed. The food we had le convivial (meat plater to share) REALLY GOOD ( special heads “up la bavette” de boeuf better than any steak house I’ve been to.) the seafood is just as good. They nailed 10... more
Overpriced tapas place! $22 a tapa!!! Not even that tasty! Go to buvette instead for sure!
Don't bother coming here for brunch. The place is empty, the food is OK at best (they were out of ham?) and service was slow (we were 4, there were 2 others in the whole place, and we waited around 30 mins to start getting our food).
Too many other good brunch places around in the area to bother with this one... more
SOMETIMES GOOD, SOMETIMES GREAT and always a little noisy ... the kind of noise that makes a conversation better.
I've lived down the street from L'Assommoir for awhile now and have visited several times. They manage to deliver a really good experience, very consistently, with the help of a large and varied cocktail menu, a decent wine list and a moderate range of beers. The food is perhaps a... more
Mmmm! This place is the bomb!
Amazing food, large servings, and a huge huge huge list of cocktails. Prices are fine (slightly on the higher side), and ambiance is nice. The only problem I have with this place is that the music is super super super super loud and so it makes conversations difficult. I'd understand if it were a club/bar but this place is meant to be a restaurant, and so it's the... more
The other reviews are indeed accurate. The food isn't so great. You're forced to order something to eat because the proximity to a school doesn't allow L'Assomoir to be classified as a bar.
My recommendation for eats is the plantain chips. They're different and work well with a fancy drink.
When it comes to cocktails, however, these guys are tops. The drinks are all very well balanced and... more
Good food, good drinks, live jazz band, good ambience. What spoiled it for us was a waitress called Sylvie. Rude, arrogant, had an I-give-a-damn attitude. Such people shouldn't be in the service industry, they ruin a perfectly nice place by their attitude.
Their food is really delicious. Sometimes, the music can be way too loud, and the service inattentive.
The most amazing cocktail list in Montréal. The only downside to this place is the very high prices of everything. They are 15-20% too expensive for that type of place.
Nice decor, tasty savoury small plates, extensive bar, and yet something seems to be missing for me. On Bernard the prices seem a little off for the neighborhood. They are clearly proud of what they do at L'Assommoir on Bernard to the point of perhaps being a little out of touch with the reality on the block. Put it this way - I live nearby and when choosing watering holes L'Assommoir rarely... more
All hamburgers should be made out of foie gras.
All resto-bars should be full of gorgeous people.
Thankfully L'Assommoir has checked off both of these boxes.
I do find it expensive but the service and ambiance make up for that. With all the drink options and nice food you will have a nice evening.
Horrible service. Brunch made me sick and the waitress only came to see us once. We had to ask the busboy questions because she was too busy sitting on her fat butt.
Me and some good friends were looking for a place to get a drink and enjoy a nice girl's night out. We certainly weren't deceived with l'Assommoir, on Bernard Street.
Frist off, the bartenders give you a great customer service and are extremely charming. :-) Brownie points for this! (Which could very well explain why this bar has so many pretty women in it. ;-) )
But let's talk about the... more
Seriously, what do people in Montreal do to their women? They are gorgeous!!
Stumbled here for some drinks after a nice dinner at Bonaparte. It was a Wednesday night and the place had a good amount of people! At first, our large group was seated in the back at the round table. Not much going on back here. DJ was playing what sounded like French house music. Anything house related is good for... more
Ok, I'll be honest. Food is c@!p. You should not be coming here for food, ever... why? BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST BAR IN TOWN.
Just count how many drinks they have on the menu! 100? 200? no, 300+
Ask them for specials and you will see your drink flying, burning, exploding, and doing all other weird things before getting in front of you. And its delicious, no matter what you order.
Ask if Mathieu... more
Happened upon L'assoimmoir by accident one rainy spring weekend, after the brazilian place across the street informed us they weren't yet open, despite a party of three drinking there. Your loss, brazilian restaurant.
L'assommoir is an upscale bar eatery in the Mile End. Its name either comes from a Zola novel (a heartwarming tale about alcoholism) or the French term for gin joint. Either way,... more
The reviews are ranging from "Doesn't deserve to be called a restaurant" to "The best Sangria of my whole life". One thing is certain, you'll probably find there the most exhaustive drink menu of your whole life. I honestly think that their menu is about 20 pages. Original drinks, tasty and very diverse. It's worth to go even for this very only reason. For example, their pink pepper and... more
Comfy, wood-panelled bar offering 300+ imaginative cocktails & tapas, plus DJs & late-night menus.
