Wow what a spot. Service was great and good even better. One of the best burgers I ever had. Mac and cheese was amazing and the mars bars were something out of this world. Highly recommend this place. Can wait to go again and try more different items on the menu.

The food was excellent as usual but I could of had more fries. Was quiet for a game day but the Habs suck this year
The Hangover burger for twenty bucks is the best value in town.

The four of us loved our Burger Bar experience! The food & service were great and the burgers were delicious!!!! So many amazing menu choices, hard to choose. Had the Yosemite Sam Burger which was cooked to perfection and flavourful. If you are a burger lover, this spot is a must! The fries were crispy and yum! Also had some super side dips. Need to get back there to try some of the other decadent menu choices! Great place!

Flavorful and juicy burger. I replaced the fries with a poutine, which was the perfect size and had the right amount of cheese curds. Would definitely go back!

We arrived at Burger Bar as it was opening so we had the restaurant to ourselves for most of our luncheon. The service was great with the option to try some brews before ordering one and discussing the food options in detail before deciding on what we were going to have for lunch. The restaurant is a small cozy venue that we enjoyed and would recommend to someone looking for a smaller laid-back but interesting and friendly place for lunch.

The food was great, it took a a tiny bit longer since the waitress placed everyone's mains at the same time. She was not friendly, just did the bare minimum of bringing the plates and getting the order right; no personality. However, the busboy David did an outstanding job of checking if everything was OK, and bringing us our condiments and water. If it wasn't for his hospitality, we would of left extremely unsatisfied. Thanks David for saving the service!

We went on a Sunday for a birthday, with the music, people and sports television, the place is super noisy. As for Sunday, they aren’t that much people but the service was slow, but the waitress was very nice. We always had to chase after her as simple as asking for the menu to see desert. Since it’s a burger place, they have various kinds including vegetarian, which is very appreciated. Depending of the burgers, some are really good and some are bland. Their milkshakes are awesome. Overall it’s a fun place with the right crowd, personally I have been there 3 times.

My wife had the Supersonic burger and I had the Hangover burger. The burgers and the service were amazing. Anyone who loves burgers should give this place a visit when in Montreal.

Met by the friendly staff who greeted us right as we entered the restaurant. Confirmed our reservation and gave us the choice to eat inside or out. We chose inside and were shown to a table upstairs by a window overlooking Crescent Street. Our server was very friendly and smiled a lot. It was our first time there and she was very helpful and answered all our questions. Food was brought out in a timely manner and was hot and delicious! We would definitely go back.

Thé only thing we noticed is that when we arrived the hostess who greets the clients wasn’t aware of our reservation and she did not offer the seating we had booked on line as requested. Furthermore, the calamari’s texture was very rubbery and not well prepared. So we didn’t eat it. However, our waitress was kind enough to comp it.
In summary, it was still a very pleasant experience due to the waitress that was serving us and the rest of the meal was great! Thanks

Great burgers! We had the Sémisonique and the Chix Dig It sandwich. Not the best we've ever had but definitely worth a stop if you're in the mood for a burger. Good fries too!

I hadn't had a burger for over two months and was in town on vacation and needed dinner. With a name like "Burger Bar," I figured this needed to be the place to satisfy my craving. I was not disappointed!! The burger was awesome (just had a regular bacon cheese burger) and the fries were the best! They were so crispy and yummy! It is unfortunate I live 400 miles away, otherwise I would be making this place one of my usual hangouts!

Absolutely amazing experience at Burger Bar. We stumbled across this gem on TripAdvisor and after reading some of the reviews and checking out the menu we decided to make a reservation. It’s located on the vibrant Crescent Street strip. Our server was fantastic - attentive and super sweet. My husband had The Boss burger and I had the Québécois burger. Both were cooked perfectly, seasoned well and the toppings were delicious! A definite must try when visiting Montreal!

Longer than normal wait time to be seated. In addition, we had to wait even longer to get a waitress to take our order. It wasn't even that crowded in the restaurant to wait so long.
