We visited this restaurant on a whim on our last full day in Montreal at the end of a conference. Before I left, I wanted to go to a place that felt like Quebec and La Sauvagine did not disappoint. My capacity to speak French is almost nonexistent, yet the staff were very patient with my attempts. Good news is that I speak "Menu" in many languages, so my selection process was not difficult!
My business partner and travel buddy, Jim Anderson (also known as my "work spouse") and I had a leisurely (read: long!) meal of the following:
|Escargot with Phyllo/Croustillant d'escargots|
|Terrine of Game (Wild Boar)/Terrine de gibier|
|Mussels and Fries/Moules Frites|
|Lobster in Port and Mushrooms (close up)|
|Lobster in Port and Mushrooms (full dish)/homard dans le port et les champignons|
|Cheese Plate/plateau de fromages|
La Sauvagine has a short but practical wine list, offering very affordable options. Our first choice wine was not available, but the server brought a pleasant red to substitute which was well within our price point and delicious. I wish I had written down what it was!
Not too far off the beaten path, this neighborhood restaurant is a treat. I would go back in an instant.
