Many restaurants, bars, and cafés pouring out the best coffee have been either flipping into or upping their game as the best delivery and best takeout in Montreal, and we're all for spreading some of our Love Local spirit by sharing our research. Montrealers are in part defined by our enjoyment of going out and eating; our relationship with eating exceptional food means that while we can’t enjoy one another’s company in a sit-down setting right now, we’ll still stay hungry for the best. Fortunately, many of the city’s top names for stuff like the best pizza, best ramen and more (including access to some of the best wine cellars in town) are still serving to make our time spent behind closed doors feel a bit more civilized. If you really want to mix things up, try any one of the restaurants with the best new delivery and takeout in Montreal.

The Thai-forward restaurant with its two locations in the Plateau and Old Montreal's back in the saddle for delivery and takeout from Wednesday to Sunday, 5pm to 9pm. A mixture of pho, pad thai, fried chicken burgers and a couple bottles of wine never hurts—especially when it's this good.

DINNER

End the day with delicacies from the top options for dinner delivery and takeout in Montreal.

Dinner delivery and takeout in Montreal

Constant demand for takeout has caused this fine dining destination in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve to develop meal boxes that keep things interesting. While it's been available for some time now, the new innovations bear some serious need for attention: Ricotta cavatelli, tandoori octopus, chicken tajines and a lot more. Beer and wine and cocktail kits are also available, plus a selection of groceries. Just make sure to order by Wednesday afternoon at the latest to pick up your order from the restaurant, Thursday and Saturday between 3pm and 7pm.

Griffintown is seriously clucked up with the fried chicken and the accompanying attache of other comfort food at Bird Bar. Every Wednesday to Sunday—pickup from 2pm to 8pm, delivery from 4pm to 8pm—you can get your hands on poutine, truffled mac'n'cheese, burgers, popcorn chicken both meaty and vegan, and yes, that crispy and juicy fried chicken.

Middle Eastern eats are on point at this fantastic restaurant near the corner of Parc Avenue and Mont-Royal in the Plateau. Cold and hot mezzes galore are available, but strong recommendations go to the crispy croquette-ish kibbeh, layered plates of fattet makdous (meat, sauce and pita), and the beef kabab served in a sweet cherry sauce.

One of NDG's favourite dining destinations is fighting the good fight by feeding Montrealers once more. Food and wine is available on Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays for pickup if the order is being places 24 hours in advance between 3pm and 7:30pm. Enjoy ready-to-go Caesars or exceedingly cheap wines with classic bistro eats like lobster salad, ready-to-grill marinated bavettes, or a blueberry-honey-rosemary bread pudding we'll always order seconds of.

The emminently fancy Griffintown restaurant is up and flying with menus that would make any couchbound Montrealer blush. Ordering here makes it easy to turn an average weekday into something special. Menus for two—or three, or four—run from ribs to pasta to elegant fish dishes. Place your order online from Monday to Friday by 4pm with 24-hour notice, pickup's from Thursday to Sunday 3pm to 5pm, delivery between 3pm and 6pm at $15 extra on orders of $75 and up.

Caribbean food's the name of the game at this restaurant, but with a twist: Griot salad, Creole Imperial rolls, fried chicken and seafood mac 'n' cheese, a rhum foie gras, johnny cakes and djondjon rice... It's hearty, it's filling, and they'll make it as spicy as you like it. 

Few things can get more comforting than Italian eats, and that's what Osteria da Elda's all about. A selection of hot and ready classics—lasagna, arancini, osso buco and more—and available alongside ready-to-eat meals that require little more than an oven. Wine and beer is available as well when you're ordering online, going daily from 5pm to 9pm.

One of top names in Thai food in town, Little Italy's Pumpui is back up and running and dishing it out as spicy as you like it. Doing it daily, the cut-off time for order is 4pm, so think a day ahead if you want any of Jesse Mulder's notorious eats: Meal sets, fried chicken, bottles of sparkling wine or cider—try out their collab beer with Ma Brasserie as well.

Lawrence’s kitchen and dining room are currently closed, but takeout and delivery systems are up and running with the full menu made available; now and then they do take a break, but their work at the neighbouring Boucherie Lawrence are always available.

The power duo behind the Mediterranean-focused wine bar-restaurant Alma recently opened up Tinc Set, a back alley joint for natural wines and rotisserie chicken takeout. Grab some juicy birds, debate over which wines to pick up until you settle on two bottles (per person) and enjoy the weekend. Open from Friday to Sunday, 5pm to 9pm, so we advise ordering ahead of time.

The OG restaurant is closed, but the butcher shop-cum-restaurant remains open to serve meals as well as a few prepared dishes and wines to go. If you're in the area, stop by for a bottle and two—heck, make it three—of their cut-to-order sandwiches and thank us later.

Everyone knows what it's like to crave something sweet, but when it comes to Montreal, there's no shortage of satisfied cravings (and wanting more after a single bite).

Dessert delivery and takeout in Montreal

It ain't takeout, it's cake-out: This dessert bar has been hard at work since the closures hit, but that hasn't affected the abolsute quality and masterful work they do. Classic and conceptual, there's a sturdy selection of cakes and doughnuts to pick from, and they're always—and we mean always—worth it. Place an order from Sunday to Friday from noon onwards and pick it up from the dessert bar between 4pm and 8pm on Friday or Saturday.

Warmer weather can only mean one thing: It's officially acceptable to eat ice cream. Opt for some of the best from either the NDG or Plateau locations of this keep-you-on-your-toes ice cream joint and its flavors like roasted marshmallow, Oreo-coconut, blood orange sorbet, cotton candy and more. Buy it buy the swirl, scoops or pints and while away an afternoon in some gorgeous summer weather.

Pleasing news in the dessert department comes from Uncle Tetsu in Chinatown West, a stone's throw away from the downtown Concordia University campus: The Japanese cheesecake to end all Japanese cheesecakes is up for grabs if orders are placed in advance (maximum of 10), available for pickup from Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 7pm.
