I had the avocado tartine. The waiter recommended it to me as a vegetarian option but it came with bacon. Overall the food was kind of disappointing. The strawberry scone was very good, though. The ambience is very nice. Definitely good for business or just hanging out with friends. I am interested to try their shared pastry plate next time.

Stunning interior, impeccable service, delicious food! The ‘Boozy-Brunch’ made our BDay celebration epic! Will now be ‘our spot’ for all our events.

The costumer service was the worst I’ve ever seen in my life. We were given a gift card as a gift which clearly stated a dinner of two was complementary. This gift was provided and it did not state a limit. On the card it mentioned the value limit was “N/A”.

When we had presented our gift card they were very rude initially. We thought it would be no problem to be bringing it to the restaurant considering it was on a Monday night. When the waiter came over and mentioned that our gift card had a limit of $100, we were surprised because our friend had also received that gift card the previous week and they had told her it’s unlimited food. We asked to speak to the manager, who ended up coming 20 mins later to only tell us that he couldn’t make executive decisions.
He then proceeded to stay that his higher management wasn’t present and I had to insist that he get us on the phone. Right as our food comes, we got on the phone with him. He was disrespectful and completely out of line. He started counting the price on the menu to determine how much we had accumulated so far to decide whether he would grant us our dinner without a limit.

Keep in mind we had ordered only 1 appetizer to share and two main courses. The phone call ended and I hung up out of frustration that they are fighting with a customer over what could be 10-15$ extra.
Turns out the meal ended up being less than $100 and so their fighting turned out to be useless and they lost two customers who will never return.
VERY very DISSAPOINTED

The food was good, just not great. And for the price, I would expect it to be great. The restaurant itself is very loud and very dark. I saw multiple people in the restaurant pull out their phones to light up their menus, and even a few that tipped the (faux) candles over to try to use the minimal light they put off to see what was on offer. I had to practically yell to hear what my partner was saying. At a certain point I just gave up and ate quietly to myself. My flank steak was quite good, but my partner's burger was bleh.

This place is just beautiful and the food was quite delicious! We had the 17$ brunch special which is over now but their whole menu looks appealing. If it is to the quality of the Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes we devoured, then it is worthy of a visit. Reservations recommended as it was very busy and full. Also, very accessible as it is beside the Place D'Armes metro station.

Great location, good food. The only thing that bothers me about this restaurant is their skimpy pours. I felt this way in June 2017 and then was reminded of it last week when I was there (Feb. 2019). For 19 CAD, I expect more than a couple of sips of wine or at least the entire bottle of beer!

I've had lovely lunches and 5 a 7s at 701, so we decided to try brunch. We were thoroughly underwhelmed. The food was bland, overpriced, and eggs under-cooked. Be prepared to pay for any and all modifications to your order (scrambled instead of sunny-side up? That'll be an additional dollar). The service was terrible.
Would definitely go back for cocktails or a work-lunch, but will avoid brunch in the future. There are much better places around. (Nice atmosphere though).

We absolutely loved everything about Brasserie 701. My boyfriend and I shared a cheese plate and the Boston Salad to begin. Both were delicious. I had the lobster tail risotto and he had the duck. Neither one of us wanted to taste the other's plate because of how happy we were with our own! Dessert was also fantastic as were the drinks and the service. A romantic and highly enjoyable night out for sure. Next time we visit the city, we will be back!

The service was very good. The food came quickly. I had an Alsatian salad and duck magret, both were delicious. The venue is quite nice with high ceilings and good ambient lighting. Cocktails were a little pricey but well made. Would recommend and would go again. The music was kind of weird but ok.
