Montreal Restaurant Guide: Casavant

“The menu is French but with an unmistakably Montréalais accent.”

The following capsule review of Casavant appears in the 2024 Montreal Restaurant Guide. To read the complete issue, please click here.


A stylish new brasserie in Villeray with aspirations of being the go-to after work spot for restaurant folk. Compact, buzzy and sporting a truly beautiful dining room, it’s the kind of place where good-looking couples spill out the door, wine glasses in hand, to smoke a cigarette while they wait for a perfect beef tartare to hit the table. The menu is French but with an unmistakably Montréalais accent — beef tartare with smoked mackerel, pintade with morels and sauce vin jaune, and a classic saucisse purée. On the beverage side, there’s a decent cocktail list, plenty of beers on tap and an enviable wine list. (350 de Castelnau E.)
