Grumman 78 has been earning a reputation as quite the trail-blazer in the Montreal street food game, offering both a restaurant in Saint-Henri and a highly successful taco-yielding food truck. “This is chef’s food. Traditionally street food tries to please everyone. We’re going for something much more creative and original,” explains co-owner Gaëlle Cerf.

Formerly the manager at Pied de Cochon, Gaëlle has over 20 years’ experience in the restaurant industry. “I wanted to do something different to traditional food,” she says. Her vision became a reality in 2010 when she teamed up with Marc-André Leclerc and Hilary McGown, who were working on the food truck’s design. "We immediately hit it off," says Gaëlle.

Marc-André and Hilary began to toy with the idea of ​​owning a taco truck after a trip to Mexico, where they fell in love with the concept of upscale street food.

Before writing, just want to say this is my first review and I have eaten at Grumman several times before but need to say that this is the worst experience I have ever had - especially for my birthday. Food was delicious but the service and organization was the absolute worst I have ever received. We had made reservations for my birthday a week ago for 20:00 but were only seated at 21:00. We arrived to the restaurant on time and were told that patrons on our reserved table were paying their bills and would be out shortly so we patiently waited. Awkwardly standing by the entrance for 45 minutes, watching larger and smaller groups being seated, I had followed up with the manager, to which, she said the table was ready... they brought us to the back of the house (pretty much the kitchen pantry where they store spices, sauces, and oils) where they set up a folding table with folding chairs. May as well be in the kitchen for all we know. After telling her it was unacceptable and that we would wait for a proper table, we walk back to the entrance to wait, to which we see a new table of 6 being sat. The entrance was also full of people so we were all awkwardly hovering above other tables for the next couple of minutes, since there was no real place to wait.. Out of respect for the other diners, we went back to our makeshift table in the kitchen and asked the manager to come get us when a table was ready, expressing our frustration about how another table was sat before us when they clearly came long after. Finally, the manager made a point to ask the patrons at the reserved table to leave and we sat. Here's the best part: after we ordered our food, one of our party members received all his meals at the same time, while everyone else had to wait, long after receiving our appetizers. This would have been understandable but some of his dishes were the same as all the others. so while he ate, the rest of us watched... the rest of the party only got their main dishes a good hour after he had finished his - we couldn't let the food cool down. This is not my first time here and I really like the food: the spicy raw salmon is one of my favorite dishes and so are the sweet potatoes. But after this experience, I will likely never go back

After several past visits to Grumman I knew it would be a good spot to host a dinner for one of my friend's birthdays. The atmosphere is great and where we were seated was nice and intimate. However, when it came to the food, it was very underwhelming. Because we were a large group we opted for the group menu. The appetizers were well presented but they were too salty and the the flavours were lost in the salt. Especially the salmon tartare. When it came to the main course, the tortillas were not soft and fresh, instead they were too chewy and rubbery. We had to fight and pull our hands away from our mouths in order for the tortillas to break. It was disappointing. Moreover, the Cornish hen was dry and again, the pulled pork was too salty. The sweet potato poutine was bare and the amount of cheese curds in the dish was little to none. Overall, we had hoped for better but the food did not get better as we went through the courses. The redeemable parts were the delicious cocktails.

Great host and service. Our waiter was really nice. But the taking the orders; receiving our food were taking very long. Not their fault, you see the restaurant was super busy, they seemed to be short staff. The food was excellent from our wine to appetizers to main dishes to desert. Little overpriced for the amount of food. The restaurant is funky and beautiful!

Our service was spotty, one of our party waited a long time for their plate which left the test of the table’s food to cool while they waited. The portions are small, so it would perhaps be good for the servers to provide advice about this. There was an appetizer special which we ordered for the table but it wasn’t really sized for 4 people -some advice would have helped.

Cool place, good food. Problem is that it took more than 90min for our food to be served (and we didn't order anything extravagant), ruining our post dinner plans in the process. Sure, we were a group of 6 during peak time (7:30pm on Saturday night) but one would think they'd be prepared for that. Hope they eventually get their act together.

No, Grumman isn't just a street truck – even if it is one of the most popular to roam the city. The Verdun restaurant awaits you with an utterly decadent mac and cheese dish containing order and chaos in equal measure: macaroni (moo!), poblano pepper, buttermilk, Velveeta cheese, cheddar, Monterey Jack , Mozzarella, nutmeg, smoked gouda, tomatoes, and lots and lots of love.
