About

In the heart of Chateau Saint-Ambroise, Restaurant L'Ambroisie is situated atop the banks of the Lachine Canal, where it has cultivated an excellent reputation for its restaurant and hosting private events. Events large and small have enjoyed their terraces and elegant banquet halls. Weddings are a specialty of theirs, and they will reduce your planning stress by offering you venues for both the ceremony and reception.

Facilities and Capacity

Offering some of the most sought after banquet halls in the city, this restaurant has two rooms on offer. First is its namesake room, L’Ambroisie, with its arresting Greco-Roman columns, baroque styling, and a Hollywood art deco bar. This dreamy room seats120 guests. Second is the Canal Room. Decked out in urban chic and looking very cosmopolitan, this well-known room offers seating for as many as 275 guests. Each room has its own dance floor with audio-visual appointments, a spacious terrace, and a full service designer bar.

Services Offered

The house uses its own kitchen for catering and offers bar service. Clients will want to confer with owner and chef Stuart Abrams for putting together a customized wedding menu. The business can also help with offerings for DJ and staff services.

The menus are inspired by international and French cuisine, as the establishment uses local, fresh, and seasonal products when possible. Some sample menu items are medallions de porc, tartar de boeuf, escalope de poulet, and more.

Great value

We shopped around quite a bit for our wedding venue, and we found the price was extremely reasonable.
The venue is quite lovely. The food was excellent. We had lots of compliments.
The DJ was great.

The day of our dreams

We celebrated our wedding at Espace Canal last weekend and it was the day of our dreams. Alexa has been a joy to work with through the entire planning process. These haven't been easy times for the industry, but despite pandemic closures and labour shortages, L'Ambroisie has managed to retain a dedicated, amazing staff full of people who clearly love working there, and they made our big day awesome. The weather cooperated to give us a beautiful sunny day and we got our dream wedding ceremony in the gardens along the canal. The party after was fantastic - the food, drinks, setup, everything went off without a hitch. They customized the menu based on our feedback and were so accommodating and flexible with our requests. Special shout-out to Alexa and team for accommodating our unique craft beer and whiskey requests. To couples looking for a beautiful venue for their wedding, look no further!

Absolutely perfect

We celebrated our wedding at l'Ambroisie a month ago and we really loved our event as well as the whole process of creating it. Since our first visit of the venue we felt that the coordinator had a lot of experience and we could follow her lead. Their documents are thorough and clear; the structure (schedule, menu, bar options, ceremony, etc) made us feel like we were in good hands, but at the same time there was enough space and flexibility for us to create a wedding that we felt was unique and reflected who we are. During the evening the staff was very nice and efficient, we felt that they were happy to be there and that they knew what they were doing. Our guests and us really loved the meal, from the appetizers all the way to the dessert. Honestly, if we were to do it all over again we would choose the same venue without any hesitation. The price was also very affordable, especially comparing with other restaurants in the neighbourhood. And the garden along the water for the ceremony was just so charming. We're so happy with how our wedding went. Thank you l'Ambroisie!

Perfect wedding experience

Our experience planning our wedding at L’Ambroisie was absolutely perfect . We had our ceremony in the beautiful gardens , and our reception in the Ambroisie room as we had a smaller guest count (around 75 people). Everything was phenomenal . Alexa, Alexandra , Laura and Megaan were great. The whole team is very responsive and always happy to help. The food was absolutely phenomenal. We even had some guests say that this was some of the best filet mignon they had ever tasted (and I would agree!). The space was absolutely stunning . Between the gardens , red brick and the stunning decor of the Ambroisie room, I felt like we had such a magical wedding. If I had to do it all again, I wouldn’t change a thing . Thank you 💗

Great Venue and Great Location!

We got married at L'Ambroisie L'Espace Canal in April and we were very happy with the service provided. The weather was nice so we were able to get married on the terrace which was beautiful by the canal. The reception was great as well ranging from the decor, the food and the DJ. Alexandra was great at answering all our questions and I would highly recommend this place :)

Best choice we made

Getting married and celebrating at the Espace Canal / Ambroisie was absolutely the best choice we made.

The outdoor garden for the ceremony was beautiful, the cocktail was great, and the food for the reception was delicious.

The entire process was simple, they were so flexible throughout the pandemic and provided exceptional service throughout. Having the ceremony, cocktail and reception all in one location made it so easy. They guide you throughout the planning process. All of the staff provided excellent service, especially our coordinator Alexandra. I had nothing but compliments from my guests and wouldn't have done anything differently. Highly recommend.

Excellent wedding venue

We booked Espace Canal for our wedding in 2019 and finally had our wedding in July 2022. Espace Canal is an underrated wedding venue in Montreal. The food is amazing. They make it all in-house in their own restaurant so it was hot and fresh for each course.

The venue itself is beautiful and the terrace is such a bonus. Our guests loved being outside throughout the party.

Alexa and her team were responsive and worked well with our wedding planner. Unfortunately, the staff on the day of the wedding did not follow our schedule as Alexa and the planner agreed on, instead telling our planner that “they don’t follow schedules”. This was disappointing as we worked hard on the schedule.

Overall, I would still recommend Espace Canal to someone looking for a beautiful venue in Montreal.
