On Montreal Restaurant Liverpool House Chef Deck says:

A long time ago (nineteenth century), in a land not so far away (Old Montreal), there happened “the great battle of the perfect pull” between Joe Beef Tavern and the Liverpool House. Nowadays the battle’s been resumed (much friendlier though…no more battle axes and trebuchets) thanks to the same owners as Joe Beef (Allison Cunningham, Frédéric Morin and David McMillan) and Liverpool house is a triumph! We started with a charcuterie plate with home made head cheese, prosciutto, coppa, mortadella, Jambon de Bayonne, salami and more which was the finest example of its kind in the city. We then had clams casino, home made ravioli and the grilled cheese of all grilled cheeses that were all mind-blowingly delicious. For our main courses we ate a veal scaloppini stuffed with Parma ham and topped with Mozzarella de Bufala, Osso bucco on top of a saffron risotto, and home made shrimp pasta all of whose originality and taste shined brighter then the reading rainbow. The meal set the precedence for fabulous desserts of beignet’s covered in an espresso infused chocolate, and a trifle type diddy. So after that experience I have to say that I’m looking forward to having to 2.3 children and growing old in Montreal at the Liverpool House restaurant.

  • Lesley

    I have heard from a few friends who have tried Liverpool House already that it is very good. I have reservations at the restaurant this Saturday I will let you know how it was.

  • Ali

    I went to Liverpool house this week, I am a really picky eater and they were pretty accomidating which dosent usually happen at these kinds of restaurants. The food was good and fresh!

    Thanks for the great review chef Deck cant wait for the next one!

  • Bot

    just went to liverpool house, and I must say pretty good. I liked it but I think Joes Beef is better.

    I loved the relaxed ambiance, and the booth seating was really comfy.

    one warning though, if you are not a meat eater there is limited choices

    I haven’t been in there, I’ve walked past it like a bunch of times though. I’m just wondering, what’s with the name? Is the owner a scouser or something? Or does it have nothing at’ll to do with British city of the same name?

  • Bus Boy Bob

    It has nothing to do with the city of Liverpool, the owners are not from England they are from Quebec. Just as their first restaurant Joe Beef was named after a local a local tavern owner Charles McKiernan whose nickname was Joe Beef and who owner Joe Beef’s Tavern in 19th century Montreal the name Liverpool House originates from another long gone Montreal tavern. As you would suspect their new lunch place McKiernan is named after Joe Beef as well.

    You can find more information on Joe Beef here:

  • Andrew

    Saying it was named after another older tavern doesn’t really explain the name. I mean, why was the original Liverpool house called that? Like was that original tavern named for the city? Or maybe it was named for the town in Nova Scotia, that was named for the original city. I’m basically curious if there’s another source for the name “Liverpool” other then the city. I suppose it is possible that someone just picked it at random, so to speak, but that seems unlikely.

    just ate there and 4 of us were not pleased. Food was way too heavy. had good duck there several months ago. lamb was terrible tonight, steak too, also way too noisy. not recommended.

  • Poulidor

    Does the name have any relation to the famous English football club?

  • cpalermino

    Definitely has gone downhill since 2007.

    Went last month and the gnocchi was deplorable.

  • footballworldcuptickets

    Just got back from a tiny almost out of the way place in Montreal called Liverpool House. Raw oysters…hot vibe. Guy on stool beside me from New York City loved LP.
