Although the menu offered little selection the food was savoury. The ambiance was great. The service was friendly but even though for every reservation you are allotted a 2 hour time slot , 20 minutes before our time was up the manager was already letting us know it was time to get going as standing next to us a was a couple waiting for our table.

Oui, je recommande fortement. C’était ma deuxième expérience dans votre restaurant et je suis enchantée de ma visite. Gavin notre serveur était super professionnel, il étais à l’écoute de ses clients. Un gros 10/10 !

The food was good except the dessert. Overall the service was correct. It’s unfortunate that we had to ask to change table. I feel that depending on how you’re dressed, you don’t receive the same service.

Delicious in every way, great wine, beautiful space, wonderful service. Service marked down one star for the annoying phone call I received asking me why I didn't honor the reservation, when in fact we had just finished eating there. Keep better records folks!

It looks beautiful (grand hotel style) but the food served for Montreal à table was like frozen/re heated stuff. The brunch was 17$ but it's a very ppor window on their usual, regular food. Most probably won"t come back.

I appreciated my experience, but I wouldn’t recommend it. The service is great! But the food didn’t meet my expectations for the main dish and especially the dessert. The salmon was dry and flavorless while the chocolate cake tasted more like a defrosted chocolate muffin.
I have to say, the service provided by the waiter was amazing.

The meals were wonderful! We were here for MTL a Table. However, my partner and I felt that they were a tad lacking in the dessert department. Of the two choices, the chocolate cake was dry and lacking a sauce to tie it together. The cheesecake was deconstructed and therefore made it more of a process to eat. But the pork was a phenomenal dinner choice with its maple wine sauce. Would definitely return here!

La tartine aux champignons était excellente. Une belle entrée en la matière. Par contre, le porc était décevant, dur et froid. Les légumes étaient correct mais tièdes. Le dessert au chocolat était également très quelconque.

Dommage car mes autres passages chez-vous ont toujours été très appréciés. Peut-être que la formule Mtl à table ne vous convient pas.

We really enjoyed our food. I had the pork tenderloin and my fiancé had the beef tenderloin. Mine was delicious. And my fiancé’s steak just happened to be one of the best tasting and cooked filet mignon we’ve ever had, ( and we eat it a lot and cook our own so we know that this is how it should taste). Our waitress was bright knowledge but not intrusive. I wish I could remember her name! Excellent all around.

My review
Appetizers: The wild mushroom was Delicious
The parsnips velouté wasn't tasteful... No seasoning..

Main course: They were very small portion on both dishes and the taste was ok.

Dessert : awful. This was NOT a cheesecake but a mousse. They should of write the exact term so people can know what to expect....

Service was... Didn't asked how was my food and the wait from each service was way too long...

Overall experience: Should of went to another restaurant.... Disappointed twice on 3 different visits. Never again

The food was average! The service was really long even if they say they’re wws a problem. We first sit next to the bar and all the kitchen noise was really annoying we had to ask to change place. Only good thing is the decor but we won’t come back.

Very surprised that we were able to obtain a table at this popular restaurant on such short notice. We were not disappointed. The service was impeccable. The food outstanding. Everyone at our table order something different so we could get a taste of each dish. If you are visiting Montreal or if you live there and have not tried Brasserie 701 add to your list of places to dine.

A truly wonderful experience, marked by outstanding, beautifully prepared and presented food, and pleasant and efficient service. We had high expectations based on reviews we had read, and the restaurant fulfilled them all, and then some. Will definitely be returning at some point.

Honestly, would never come back. To begin with, the music was way too loud. We were waiting for 15 minutes before someone even brought us water. I had to physically get up and ask the hostess to send us a waiter and the restaurant was only half full. The food was extremely disappointing. Probably the worst Eggs Benedict I’ve ever eaten to be fully honest. Also, their breakfast poutine was a joke. I couldn’t believe they even serve this. It’s essentially just potatoes with a little bit of cheese, no sauce.... Finally, the pancakes were a huge disappointment as well. We took 2 bites and left the rest. They were dry, almost tasted old... Actually terrible and I’ve never eaten somewhere where the pancakes were actually bad. I don’t usually take the time to write reviews like this so to whoever is reading this: actually avoid this place.

Food decent - great hamburger. Steak a little chewy. Lobster risotto could have been much better. Instead of cooking the lobster in the risotto they dropped two bland tails on top, giving the impression that the risotto had been made much earlier. Service ok at first , then waiter forgot about us - took 20 minutes to get our dessert

The food was incredible!!! highly recommend the mushroom ravioli. The sauce was delicious but not overpowering and it was so fresh. The escargot was also to die for!
