James Le Restaurant

Old Montréal

At the crossroads of yesteryear and tomorrow lies the exclusive James Le Restaurant in the Hotel Le St-James, in the Quartier International. Housed inside the former Banker's Hall of the Merchants' Bank dating from 1870, every aspect of James oozes splendour, refinement and utmost elegance.

The charms of the premises and the gracious hospitality you receive from the moment you place your reservation transform each meal into an unforgettable dining experience. 

When it comes to culinary creativity, Chef Éric Gonzalez and his team don’t disappoint, delivering inventive cuisine made from the freshest ingredients, creating seasonal delights for every occasion. Likewise, the wine list includes a rich selection of treasures, carefully chosen by their own sommeliers, from the world's leading cellars.

From breakfast meetings to evening cocktails to twilight romantic dining, James Le Restaurant offers a stylish setting at any time of day. Come friday, it adds a musical touch by proposing a harmonious marriage between gastronomy and live jazz, as skilled musicians enter the scene from 7 p.m.
