Where to Dine With a Group in Montreal

Restaurants with private rooms, intimate mezzanines, and more

View as Map

Whatever the occasion, Montreal offers lots of options for dining in a group, be it with family, friends, or coworkers. Places on this guide can accommodate groups from eight to well over 100 (if pandemic regulations allow it), without squishing diners onto each other’s laps — and with great food, to boot.

Some of the restaurants on the map feature private spaces or rooms that can be set aside, while others offer long tables and cozy corners that can do the job. In certain cases, a smaller restaurant be willing to close to the public for a block of time and accommodate your event. Generally speaking, the larger the group, the more likely it is that a restaurant will want to do a set menu though.

Current Quebec coronavirus regulations stipulate that a maximum of 10 people may be seated at a table, but that reservations can be made for groups of any size. For updated information and regulations applying to restaurants and bars, please visit the official sites of the Quebec government and Montreal’s public health authority (Santé Montréal).
