Where To Dine With a Group in Montreal

Restaurants with private rooms and beyond

View as Map

Whatever the occasion, there are more than enough options in Montreal to dine in a large group, be it family, friends, or coworkers. And every place on this guide can accommodate large groups from 15 to well over 100, without squishing diners onto each other’s laps — and with great food, to boot.

Many of the locations below feature private spaces or rooms that can be set aside (sometimes with fixed menus), while others offer long tables with à la carte choices. Generally speaking, the larger the group, the more likely it is that a restaurant will want to do a set menu.

Reservations-to-be should take note that they should ideally be prepared with more than one option for a date in mind; a private dining room or large group reservation may not be available on a specific date and time, particularly on busy weekend evenings. Also note that some restaurants will automatically attach gratuities for large groups, so be sure to ask how much for how many.
