From OpenTable: 

The French called Canada’s main financial thoroughfare "rue Saint-Jacques", and the English "St-James Street". Synonymous with opulence and influence, it was the second street in what is now Montréal. Bordered by banks and named after Jacques Olier, the street continues to be known today as a museum of high finance. Today, Hotel Le St-James, the former Merchants Bank, sits enthroned at the crossroads of history. On midsummer nights, modern-day coachmen in top hats take us back a hundred years to a day when bankers glanced at their pocket watches while crossing rue St-Jacques to the stock exchange and central telegraph offices just blocks away.



XO Le Restaurant, situated in the former Banker's Hall, is truly a beautiful space composed of a dining room, a bar & lounge, two beautiful mezzanines, as well as four alcoves which add an extra touch of comfort and privacy. Chef Robillard's exciting culinary imagination brings you modern, creative French cuisine.

world class service, good food, elegant and chic decor

We dined at XO this Friday Oct 9th,8PM

I Started off with a beef tartare: small rectangularish artfully presented tartare, amazingly fully flavoured,
topped by a poached quail egg , cute little leaves of baby arugula.
This tartare is one of the top best I ever had in a city..where god knows…tartare is so popular: as far as taste, freshness, complexity of execution and supreme well balanced flavors go, this was simply impeccable. That truffle mayo master taste behind this tartare was simply heavenly to my tastebuds!

My Main course consisted of their “Free form lasagna”, this dish — I predict — will quickly become (whether he wants it or not) the signature dish of their chef: although, at first glance, it might not look like your typical lasagna… it is packed with all technical goodies of a lasagne: cheese, pasta and so on. But this is a unique high end different and creative version of the lasagna → it’s more of a “deconstructive” version of it: from the small chunks of lobster, braided sweetbreads, enjoyable lobster emulsion, fresh tender baby spinash and oh so lovely stracchino cheese….
every little element of that dish was a blast in terms of taste. Impeccably delicious.
