Not big quantities. Service was good but mistakes at the end with receipts. Forgot about the bread we asked. We left 2 messages prior to our coming but no answer.

The music was not good. If only it was jazz music, the ambiance would’ve been better. There weren’t enough choices for the plat principale. Overall, it was the music that bothered me because in a french restaurant with elegant decorations, pop music wasnt it. We asked if we could request a song and it was immediately a no.

We went for brunch & bottomless mimosas, the hollandaise sauce on the egg benedict was blend & didnt taste good. Our glasses of mimosa & water were always full.

Ambience and service was great - but the food and portion sizes were disappointing for the prices that they charge. Probably a great place for a 5 a 7, but not for brunch. Eggs Benedict were "so-so". However, stay away from the fried chicken served with waffles (unless your jaw needs a workout, and you enjoy heartburn in the late afternoons).

J’ai été déçu du service. Le vin mousseux et le vin blanc n’étaient pas froid. Il a fallu insister pour avoir un set-up adéquat dans le contexte actuel. J’étais allée à ce restaurant en janvier 2020 et j’avais été très satisfaite. Je ne pense pas y retourner.

We entirely loved the vibe of this restaurant. The service was incredible (our waiter indulged us and our millennial questions), the food was extremely delicious and the restaurant itself is very beautiful. We were running a little late so the 20 minute grace period really came in handy. Can’t wait to come back!

Même si l'environnement et la décoration du restaurant est exceptionnel, le bruit et la musique forte déteins sur l'ambiance. Aussi, sur la carte du brunch les prix restent raisonnables. Mais une fois l'assiette arrivée, la nourriture est très maigre pour le prix que cela coûte. Un peu déçue par l'expérience.. surtout qu'avec un si beau cadre, ça mériterait quelque chose mieux.

We went there to take a glass of wine during the day, it was amazingly noisy and wine very expensive. We went back since we had a reservastion at night. Different crowd but still very noisy. Vegetable feuilleté at 13$ for few pieces of vegetable and two flaky crust with no taste was a bit expensive for this type of appetizer. We both had Raviolis that was very good and worth the price. The menu is very simple but seems to be up to clients expectations since the place was crowded ! I was happy with my choice but qill not go back.

Though I understand it’s the whole Look of being in the old port. The quantity of food is a bit skimpy.
Don’t mind paying for a good meal, but at least make it worth while.
Service and atmosphere is great
I’m sure the night life is what ppl mainly go there for.
I wouldn’t recommend breakfast. I mean it’s eggs, bacon, sausage & potatoes lol we can get the same elsewhere for way less and more. At least put more.

Brasserie 701 was one of our favourite Montreal dining locations. Our last visit, however, ensured we will not dine there again. Specifically, the small variety of cheeses presented on the cheese plate appetizer was bland and flavourless. The ravioli sauce had apparently been thickened with corn starch or some such thing and then reheated, thus leaving a congealed mess on the plate. Our order for second glasses of wine was ignored or forgotten. All in all, a poor dining experience.

Great vibe in the restaurant. Different styles of seating available which is cool. Arrived at 6:30PM & were told that there was no fish of the day and one of the specials was also gone. Waiter brought 1st round of drinks in 15 minutes. He forgot about the second round. Otherwise, service was ok.
Food was flavorful and very nicely presented but not quite delicious. Wine selection is good and good variety of price points. The cocktail list is innovative but taste & flavor of my gin cocktail was mediocre and too sweet.
Overall, a popular spot & fun place to go but don't expect a gastronomic experience.

Tried filet mignon for the first time and it was incredible. I also had creme brûlée for the first time as well and it was delicious. Definitely a spot to recommend if you’re looking for a nice fancy dinner
