Restaurant avec "comfort food" dans un style proche d'un bar (beaucoup d'options végétaliennes!) - Edit

Je place L'Gros Luxe 100% Végé dans la même catégorie que Lola Rosa: ce n'est clairement pas un restaurant végétarien aussi santé que Aux Vivres ou Crudessence, mais ça fait du bien de temps en temps! Que vous soyez végétarien à la recherche de comfort food ou que vous ayez simplement envie d'une pause de viande, L'Gros Luxe 100% Végé est à essayer. Même si la nourriture n'est pas particulièrement mémorable (les burgers, nachos, etc. sont assez classiques), les prix sont raisonnables et, surtout, l'endroit a beaucoup de charme. Il y a une certaine ambiance "vintage" qui convient parfaitement à un samedi soir. D'ailleurs, je craignais que le restaurant allait être assez bruyant mais, au final, la musique n'est pas trop forte (et on s'entend parler!). Le personnel est sympathique mais, malheureusement, l'employée qui nous a servis semblait un peu perdue et n'était pas attentionnée. Le temps d'attente était assez long, autant pour les drinks que pour les entrées et les plats principaux. Bref, je recommande L'Gros Luxe 100% Végé pour le souper mais, par contre, si vous êtes à la recherche d'un dessert pour conclure votre repas, je doute que vous trouverez votre bonheur (l'offre des desserts n'est ni étoffée, ni originale). Misez plutôt sur le hummus de betterave et L'Gros Burger Végé pour rassasier votre faim!

Best vegan poutine! - Edit

I tried my first vegan poutine at this place and was expecting something good, but not as good as the regular poutines. I was positively very surprised as it turned out to be absolutely amazing! I would recommend it as any other non-vegan poutines. It's really good.

Pros: Vegan options, Cool ambience, Good value

Cons: So so service (after 3 visits)

Yum!! - Edit

I was happy to learn of this location when I went back to Montreal after having moved away. They have lots of vegan options, including what we all want: poutine. The vegan cheese was really good. The portions are more snack size, or maybe I was really hungry, but I could have eaten two servings of the poutine hehe.

Pros: vegan poutine!!

Cons: kitchen closes a bit early(10pm).

Yum! - Edit

Great atmosphere, and the restaurant was packed when my husband and I went! He ordered the vegan poutine and absolutely loved it. I had the Jackfruit tacos, which were also really good, but I found the serving size the be a bit small. We ordered the chocolate cake for dessert which is a must try! Will definitely be going back the next time we're in MTL!

Pros: Friendly staff, fun atmosphere

Cons: Some dishes are small

Yummy must try!! - Edit

I was pleasantly surprised by their vegetarian menu and then even more wonderfully surprised by their vegan options and the ease it takes to transform dishes on their menu into vegan dishes. I attended the restaurant with my friend who is neither vegan nor vegetarian and myself being vegan, we came to a compromise and decided to try L'Gros Luxe. The food is really good and I didn't have to compromise after all! Sorry my friend heehee...all joking aside she actually enjoyed her mushroom burger dish!

Pros: Delicious food, Nice ambiance, Perfect portions

Cons: Need more room for strollers, Needs more light

Ca vaut le détour! - Edit

Tout de suite en entrant nous avons ete seduit par le décor chaleureux et la bonne musique. Le personnel est vraiment cool et authentique. Et que dire du menu qui représente bien les saveurs que le "Quebecois" apprécie. Un Must: les cornichons frits et la Poutine Vegan!!!
Un endroit où nous retournerons certainement.

Not vegan friendly - Edit

We were super excited to hear that le Gros Luxe was opening a 100% veg restaurant! When we went a couple weeks ago, we noticed the menu didn't mark what was vegan. We asked our waitress and she said most of the menu items used eggs and cheese. She pointed to 2-3 options she thought were vegan, but wasn't sure. We ordered the three things she said were "probably vegan"-- spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer, a veggie burger, and a Mexican bowl. The appetizer came fairly quickly but the main dishes took an hour to arrive. Sure, it was really busy, but an hour to wait is a really long time! When our food finally came we found the burger was very greasy (rare for vegan food!) and the bowl was so-so.

My non-vegetarian friends really like the veggie burger here, so maybe it's a good choice for veg and non-veg groups to go.

Another reviewer said most things can be made vegan, so maybe it's the fault of our waitress for not knowing. Nevertheless, my stomach didn't like the heavy, greasy food or the long wait, so I won't be returning. There are so many other fantastic veg restaurants in Montreal-- go to those instead!

Pros: Good for vegetarians, Good location

Cons: Bad for vegans, Greasy food, Bad service

Great atmosphere, comfort food - Edit

L'Gros Luxe 100% Végé offers original vegan dishes that you can't get elsewhere in Montreal like a poutine grilled cheese, vegan waffles with friend vegan chicken, breakfast poutine, etc., as well as other classics like veggie burgers, fries, bowls, etc.

I like the large selection of cocktails and highly recommend the chai tea ice cream for dessert and the bruschettas as an appetizer.

It is a great place to sample local products like Gusta and VegNature vegan cheeses and Lacrem vegan ice cream.

Pros: Friendly service, Original cocktails

Cons: Reservations recommended, Noisy

Vegan Curds! - Edit

Amazing food, by far the best we had while we were visiting Montreal. Vegan poutine was amazing, and so was the pulled "chicken" sandwich. Also the mushroom brushcetta app is a must. The chai ice cream for dessert so creamy! The menu is 80% vegan, and most item can be made vegan. This is a must if your HABS country.
