Conventions are a wonderful place for reuniting with friends and meeting new people. Oftentimes an spontaneous group forms over a shared interest. The conversation is great and the group decides to continue the discussion over dinner. The big question is where to go? These seven Montréal restaurants are perfectly suited for groups of a dozen people (or more). 

L’Atelier d’Argentine

Chef Natalia Machado serves up Argentine asado flavours: steaks grilled a la parilla and served with chimichurri and salsa criolla. They accommodate groups from 12 to 100 people and offer a three-course menu starting from $50. For something a more private, reserve the private dining room, perfect for groups of up to 14 guests. Bonus: AV equipped!

Suite 701

Steps from Notre-Dame Basilica in Old Montréal, Suite 701 is one of the city’s most popular meeting places. The large private dining room is perfect for your squad before you continue the evening with the Montréal Symphony or Cirque du Soleil. Or you could just stay put: the laid back lounge atmosphere with local resident DJs is the perfect place to spend an entire evening. Groups of 10 (or more) qualify for customizable menus.

Tapas 24

The Montréal venture of world-renowned Chef Carles Abellan, Tapas 24 is one of the city’s favourite spots to tuck into a variety of authentic Spanish tapas. The private dining room can accommodate groups up to 50 people. The staff is accustomed to hosting business meetings, birthdays, cocktails, product launches, movie shoots and more.

Imadake Izakaya

Enjoy delicious Japanese pub grub and hot sake in one of Montréal’s most happening “izakayas” (translation: Japanese gastropub). The menu features organic and antibiotic-free ingredients, including Ocean Wise seafood. With advanced planning, you can reserve the private dining room for up to 30 people.

Decca 77

Located in the heart of downtown, Decca 77 offers two different vibes and stylish atmospheres: a posh fine dining room, and a more casual, relaxed brasserie. Both feature menus highlighting contemporary French cuisine prepared with fresh local and seasonal produce. Call ahead to book the private dining area, a handsome salon with a 70-seat capacity and its own private bar!

Brasserie Le Pois Penche

A French gem in the middle of the city, Le Pois Penché offers French specialties and a fantastic raw bar. Groups can reserve their warm and rustic private dining room located next to their wine cellar — which stores an extensive selection of over 150 imported French wines. Group menus available.


For something off the beaten path, this Turkish bistro in the Verdun neighborhood offers the largest variety of Turkish wines in the city. Chef Fisun Ercan serves labneh, kebob, köfte, and a range of other Middle Easter specialities. The large communal tables are ideal for accommodating groups.
