I love this restaurant and have yet to have a negative experience in a dozen visits. The food is rich and filling but absolutely delicious. Au Pied de Cochon is a priority visit each time I am in Montreal. Have my reservations set again for my next trip later this month.

Cest décadent, la nourriture nous surprend à chaque nouveau plat qui se présentent à nous. Pour apprécier l expérience du pied de cochon, il faut goûter à plusieurs entrées et partager . Le service est sympathique et chaleureux malgré un restaurant très achalandé. Pour un samedi soir du grand prix de Montréal, nous ne nous sentions pas bousculé. À essayer au moins une fois dans votre vie.

Je suis vraiment satisfaite sur tous les points. Ma serveuse Catherine était trèsposée, détenait un excellent soucis du service et tenait à coeur que notre expérience soit la meilleure qui soit. Bien que nous avions beaucoup de questions sur le vin, elle ne semblait pas du tout impatiente et ne nous a pas conseiller n'importe quel vin. Les plats, délicieux, gargantuesque, oui, mais surtout apprêtés avec brio. J'ai fini toutes mes assiettes avec un bout de pain! Chapeau à toute l'équipe!

Il faut l'essayer!

Le Pied de Cochon est une expérience. Décor rustique, nourriture qui sort des sentiers battus, athmosphère vive, personnel excentrique, ce tout inclus permet de vivre un souper presque parfait! Même si la poutine au foie gras semble trop classique, il faut quand même l'essayer. Pour le Pied de Cochon et le tartare de bison, c'était aussi un sans faute. Seul petit accroc, les portions sont beaucoup trop généreuses et c'est assez bruyant. Mais dans son ensemble, c'est plus que réussi! Et merci au service plus qu'attentionné de Jessica qui nous a recommandé ses "best of!" de la métropole avec un enthousiasme devenu contagieux. À refaire!

Rien d'incroyable

Pour ceux qui savent pas cuisiner des stew ou qui sont avare de bouillis ou de foie cela peut satisfaire... En dehors de cela tres a l'etroit, service lent et ambiance assez stagnante. A mon avis c'est un surclassement de la part de food network.... A moin que vous eprouvez de la jouissance a voir un porc debiter en morceau sur votre table... Tarif excessif ... .. Je n'ai aucun probleme a dépenser 100 a 200$ pour une expériance culinaire mais Pas dans cette etablissement... Vraiement deçu!

More like an experience than a meal

After reading about all the hype surrounding this restaurant I had to check it out for myself. For my main, I had the famous (infamous) "Duck in a Can", which is rolled up duckmeat packed with greens and foie gras in a tin can. Seriously, check out the video on Youtube. Beyond the delicious food I was really impressed by the quickness and dilligence of the servers, who were always moving and easy to talk to, despite the fact that the restaurant was packed from the get go. This staff really deserves a round of applause. Lastly, while I enjoyed myself, I found my time there more of an eating experience than a well rounded meal. If you're going to check out I recommend having a nice salad or something with a lot of roughage. Eating all that duck and drinking red wine really knocked me out. I feel asleep as soon as we got back to the hotel.

Pork done royally

I felt like the Duchess of Pork after dining here. They really know how to make a wonderful variety of pork dishes, among other things. The atmosphere is more country casual than I thought it would be, and the washroom is like something you'd find on a farm. Only one of two stalls was working, and they need more than that in such a busy restaurant. The washroom is also behind the bar, so it's an unusual setup in that way. Prepare to line up to use the facilities. I think they need to expand and relocate the washrooms. Although the atmosphere is definitely rural old French Canada, the food is delightful. Both my kids ordered the foie gras poutine and loved it. My husband couldn't resist trying braised pigs feet (Au Pied de Cochon as per the restaurant name) and said it was delicious. I had the Happy Pork Chop, and it was delicious as well. We all walked out of there stuffed and satisfied. Service was very good and the place was packed, even on a freezing winter night.

Poutine au foie gras

Pour les amateurs de foie gras, de cochon sous toutes ses formes et de canard. Avec la soupe a l'oignon et la poutine au foie gras... impossible de prendre un dessert... c'est pas l'envie qui manque... c'est physiquement impossible.

Total caloric heaven!

By far my favorite restaurant in town - the food is INCREDIBLE. I always start with the foie gras poutine as an appetizer -- but should really have it as a full meal. The entrees are too good to pass up on though! And its has a fantastic ambiance - very lively.

One of my Favourites in Montreal!

I am a huge fan of Martin Picard and he certainly lives up to his name "the Wild Chef" with some of the features at Pied Du Cochon! When we came here, our friends ordered an entire pig's head! I was a little less adventurous with my selection, with a foie gras poutine and an entree of duck and mushrooms. If you have never had a foie gras poutine, I would highly reccommend that you get one ASAP. It is the simply the most divine thing you will ever eat... not for those who are watching their caloric intake! But c'est la vie!

Cochon

Les assiettes sont (très) copieuses. Les bouchées de foie gras et les soupes à l'oignon sont délicieuses en entrée. Et quoi de mieux qu'un pouding chômeur de luxe (ça sonne drôle non?) à l'érable pour bien terminer tout ça? Les clients se la jouent un peu, mais bon...Un bon endroit.

Love this place for its unique way of prepering and presenting their food. Foie gras many different ways and each one equally delicious. Love the duck in a can, the duck carpacio and the foie gras pizza. I will return. Daniel.

Wow

Its ridiculous to eat dinner at 10:30pm, especially when you called 6 days ahead to make reservation, but this is the reality at this fabulous restaurant! And we were only given our table after 11pm. Anyhow, that's just the french/European culture to have long dinner, but it's well worth the wait. The Poutine wasnt as impressive, though I should have ordered their famous Foie Gras Poutine. But since I couldnt finish this dish, I packed a doggie bag. This turns out to be better, as the cheese curds are nicely melted by the microwave, perfect fit with the fries. The Duck-in-the-Can dish was AMAZING! Absolutely full of flavors, though its hard to tell what is being fed in your mouth (since eveything is cooked in a can, and dumped onto your dish straight from it). I would definitely order this dish again, which is something I rarely do as I like experimenting diff food. Anyhow, dont count the calories or the budget when you go to this restaurant, let their food overwhelm you!

It was a real treat to visit your restaurant. As we were without much knowledge of the regional cuisine and looking forward to trying new things, our server was extremely helpful and very patient with us as we asked many questions and took a long time to decide. She provided delicious suggestions for food and beverages that we decided to order, and it was a fantastic experience. Service from all staff was prompt and pleasant, and the bathroom is lovely. Thank you for everything. We will be back from Boston to visit again!

The room is very loud and the ambience is rudimentary at best. Sticky tables and frantic staff. The wine list starts at $50 and quickly gets into the $150-500 range, which is alarming considering the level of service and decor of the place. Our waiter actually opened our bottle on her knee. We ordered the duck appetizer, which arrived frozen, she explained it is supposed to be dipped in the accompanying dashi, problem ours was luke warm so it didn’t do the job. We waited 20-30 minutes for our check and all the while watching our server take shots. Overall it was greasy, loud, rude and very expensive. I wouldn’t recommend.

Superb service, ambience and food. We shared the signature pied de cochon as our main, and as recommended by the server. The presentation and flavours were unique, particularly with the additional flair of foie gras atop the meat. We also tried the foie gras nigiri which had flavours that (surprisingly) worked very well together. The leek side was also good, probably because of the excellent chicken broth it was bathed in. Overall, the only improvement on our part could have been to balance things out with more vegetable. Highly recommended!

Not your typical Thanksgiving fare in Montreal

Not your typical Thanksgiving fare in Montreal

The holidays are about indulgence so why not go for the ultimate indulgence with Au Pied de Cochon and all that foie gras! Martin Picard’s restaurant is a bastion for decadence. It’s closed on Monday so tell the family that Thanksgiving is being celebrated on Sunday this year! Order the famous duck in a can, which they ceremoniously present at your table or go all out and get their Plateau PDC, filled with clams, oysters, mussels, octopus and more! If you plan ahead, get a reservation at the Pied de Cochon Cabane à Sucre for apple season, this can easily become a new family tradition.

Tucked away on Avenue Duluth East, Au Pied de Cochon is an either/or type of place: it's either famous or infamous; it's either genius or madness; it's either drawing you in or sending you off running. It makes a big impact, nowhere more so than with the renowned canard en conserve, or “duck in a can,” which is actually served from a can onto your plate, sliding out hot and divine, ready to eat.
