    I made the reservations but was not aware it was not a rooftop spot. All the hostess had to do was kindly clear up my confusion, but instead, she became emotional, which took me by surprise. I waited forever for the food. When it did arrive, I was completely disenchanted and decided to take it to go. The food was delicious, and I would recommend it. However, the service was meh. I've traveled a lot, and I must say Montreal has been a 2/5.

    Food took forever to come (we waited for over an hour for our food). Our waitress hardly checked in on us. When my boyfriend’s burger came it was so burnt and we had to send it back. Would not recommend. On top of that as a gay couple we felt very uncomfortable in the restaurant as we would see waitresses standing off to the side whispering and staring at us. Not a comfortable or excepting environment.

    We're sorry for the lengthy wait and the burnt burger you received. This isn't the standard we aim for, and we're addressing these issues internally. We appreciate your feedback and hope you'll give us another chance to provide a better experience. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Waited 1 hour for 1st course & another 30 minutes for mains. Irritating throbbing beat (not music). Avoid the gnocchi- overcooked. Sea bass ok but accompanied veg very bland

    Beautiful ambience, but the food was lacking. Ordered the bouillabaisse which had a mix of squid, a few prawns, mussels, and one piece of cod with skin (and scales). The sauce was lukewarm and poured over the seafood. Would have liked a piece of bread to sop up the sauce. The filet mignon was a bit overpowered by the large quantity of Boursin cheese. The steak itself needed a bit more seasoning. We shared a rocher praliné for dessert which was the only highlight of the night. Service was decent; nothing outstanding.

    I haven’t been in here in years and now I remember why. Last time I came here the food and service was underwhelming and looks like nothing has changed since then. I think they believe having a prime location on the edge of old Montreal will be enough to entice people to come to their establishment which is true the first time but not the second. Honestly you would think after all these l years, they would get better but nothing has changed. Disappointing for sure. The home fries were like McCain fries, the ham and sausages were dry. Bacon and eggs were decent. We ask for coffee and tea mid way during our meal and had to ask 3 times. After the 3rd time, we were informed that the tea requested was not available. I don’t even believe the waitress came by to ask how our food was. Service was spotty as I can see other patrons frustrated by the lack of attention. Seems our waitress was more attentive to the group of men who wanted shots than to tend to her guests. Great location, nice looking restaurant but can’t say anything much for the service of food. It was years ago but now I remember to enjoy my brunch somewhere else.

    The place is beautiful, the staff was very attentive. We were sat toward the back, and there was a lot of staff going back and forth constantly, so it felt a little crowded there, but the whole space is beautiful. The food was of excellent quality but the quantity was overkill. With the buffet and a la carte selections together, it’s a lot to eat! The price is very high (!) and with all the food at high quality, I can understand why, but at the same time, who can eat that much ? :) I think the buffet could be significantly pared down (lamb and chicken in the morning..?) and the cost reduced to reflect that. Overall though, excellent experience.

    C’était notre deuxième fois au Bistro 701. Notre première visite, remontant à février dernier, avait été impeccable. Gros coup de cœur pour le tartare de bœuf! Cette fois-ci, quelle déception! J’ai dû retourner mon tartare car il goûtait le poisson. J’avais demandé une salade vinaigrette à part et pas de frites. On m’a apporté des frites et une salade avec vinaigrette. La salade a été changée. Pour ne pas gaspiller ces accompagnements, j’ai simplement demandé qu’on m’apporte un steak, comme mon conjoint, qui avait commandé le steak/frites.Tout était parfait de son côté, cependant c’était la première fois qu’un steak/frites ne comprenait pas au minimum quelques légumes ou une salade. Malheureusement, après plus d’une demi-heure d’attente, je n’avais toujours rien reçu. Mon conjoint avait terminé son repas, ma salade était terminée, j’avais grignoté quelques frites… J’ai demandé à tout annuler. Notre serveur a été impeccable et le service était irréprochable. On nous a offert notre bouteille de vin et on nous a dit qu’il y avait des difficultés en cuisine. Donc en résumé, excellent service, magnifique ambiance, mais cuisine très problématique. Nous donnerons peut-être une autre chance au Bistro 701, mais cette visite a été très décevante.

    We waited 2 hours for dinner service without even getting to dessert. It took a long time for appetizers to come and then even longer for entrees to come. When the entrees came, one of the entree was wrong. Food was mediocre. Escargots tasted like it's straight from a can. Mussels were dried up to the point where it had no sauce (just sitting in a pool of oil). Seating was also an issue; they had tables seated too close together. People kept bumping into one of our seats as they navigate to their spaces.

    Très déçue de notre soirée- Nous fréquentons ce restaurant depuis. 2 ans et malheureusement ce sera notre dernière visite pour un grand bout- Service chaotique- jamais la même personne à notre table- le steak frite qui est en fait une bavette est proposé seul dans l’assiette sans salade ou légumes.. furent-ils minimum.. les frites sont servies dans un bol de soupe à l’oignon qui est déposé dans l’assiette..donc ´a l’assiette, ns ns retrouvons avec un morceau de steak « chenu » et un gros bol de frite..dommage, je n’ai pas de photos- indigne de la réputation du 701 et indigne de 38$- tous les serveurs étaient derrière le bar et semblaient bien s’amuser entre eux… alors que nous attendions nos apéritifs!! Bref, le steak commandé Medium est arrivé bien cuit et l’expérience était tellement pénible depuis notre arrivée, que j’ai décidé d’en manger la moitié et de nous presser de quitter pour aller prendre le dessert et le digestif ailleurs -

    It was a great experience. The resturant is beautiful and the food was great. However, the service was slow.

    I got a reservation for 7:30 pm. The restaurant called me a 6:50 pm to let me know my table was ready. I rushed to get there at 7:25 pm only to be told that there was a mistake and I had to wait. They improvised a single table in a hallway, righ in front of a place where they cut the loafs of bread. It took 20 minutes before finally somebody took my order. The appetizer was 6 fresh oysters on the shell. After 50 long minutes of wait I decided to leave. The service is below precarious. The other reason I left was because right in front of me every single table server would grab the baguette of bread to cut it with their bare hands. No gloves. Then they would rub their laps or side of the body to get rid of the crumbs. Very loud and antigenic place. I have not had such a deplorable experience like this in a long long time. Obviously, I will never go back.

    Everything was great! Though we were hoping for a more quiet setting as my friend is blind and hearing impaired and being able hear each other is very important. I had left a note on my reservation about such and the restaurant called me to let me know that the noise level might be higher than we wanted as they had multiple groups that night. The call was so great as it let us make the decision as to whether we were ok with the obstacle the noise would cause and they kept a corner table to accommodate as best they could. Servers were also really great with adapting to our needs while we were there and the food was really tasty. The restaurant is beautiful and let us dress up while staying on a more modest budget.

    Everything was average; not bad, not great. Ambiance was nice. Waitress was pleasant. Escargot appetizer was delicious. The steak frites we both ordered was very average and sadly not hot (cold frites aren’t good). We noticed other tables had been served bread so we asked our waitress. She said it had been ordered, whatever that means and just shrugged. Then she brought us bread crisps. Strange. When we told her the food was not hot, she again shrugged, said she was sorry and that they’ve been having problems in the kitchen. Again, what? I ordered a cosmopolitan, it was kind of watery; again weird. Just an odd experience. If we lived nearby maybe we’d try again but sadly it was our only dinner in town and it just wasn’t great or even good.

    Excellent food and service tucked in the heat of Old Montreal. We had the bone marrow w escargot, foie gras, beef tare tare, steak frites and bouillabaisse. All were excellent and will come back to try more dishes next time!

    Very poor service. Food is ok We had remind and call the waitress multiple times to order the food. Ordered desert and coffee but coffee wasn’t served. After reminding of that all we got was a casual sorry. Whole thing took 2 plus hours because of the ignorance of waitress to pay to attention to serve the customers It’s our mistake going g to the place even after reading about so so service After this experience, I doubt if we are going to TRUST the open table suggestions any morers STAY AWAY from this place

    This is a hotel restaurant, and their fare is just fair. It is quite expensive though so there is that. No vegetables on the menu really.
