    Disappointed. Very slow service. Not particularly friendly server - just ok. Food was not memorable enough. Burger was very very overcooked. Lamb shank was 6/10. Sat outside - nice weather. There are better options for the price in Old Montreal!

    Beautiful day outside so sitting on the sidewalk was nice for people watching and listening to music piped onto speakers. Very polite and attentive waiter, great cocktails. Food was good except steak was cooked a little too rare and was sent back. Otherwise lovely experience.

    Food and service were both great. The octopus was delicious but on the expensive side - perhaps my new favourite version. Mussels were tasty and well prepared but not as amazing. Alas they took the creme brûlée off the dessert menu in favour of a cheesecake.

    I will start this by saying I am American, so I am use to quicker service. Other than that the food was really good. Had the beef cheek and duck. The beef was better, but both are good options. The service was slow, but everything thing else really good about service; they were extremely nice and helpful. The ambient noise was just cars (we sat outside) but it was not loud. I would come back if I was in the area.

    Each plate was beyond our expectation. The burrata was different from anywhere else. The braised beef was cooked to perfection and the risotto with the sauce was very tasty. The cavatelli with bocconcini, mushroom with truffle was very creamy and rich. Will definitely go back because everything was good and the menu keeps changing.

    Tonight was disappointing overall. First, it is important to note: 1. We knew going into this evening that we might need to go up a few steps. It's Old Montreal. The restaurant is listed as "wheelchair accessible." It is not. 2. Our server Kayla did everything she could to make sure we had a nice evening. She is overworked. 3. The food is amazing. I included a note on our reservation that we had a wheelchair and that my husband would transfer from his chair to a regular chair. When we arrived, the only place that was accessible was outdoor seating. I had requested indoor seating. There were 3 to 4 tables just inside the restaurant that were empty with only one step up. The hostess said she would check. After some time and back and forth, she said we'd have to eat in the hotel lobby, which was down the street a bit, but now 4 steep steps up without a full handrail. Meanwhile, the manager is standing 5 ft. from us and does not help at all. So that was the option we took, even though there was a much more accessible option literally right next to us. Because we weren't in the restaurant, Kayla was running her butt off trying to keep up. She totally missed getting our wine to us until we were almost done with dinner. About halfway through our entrees, the manager stopped by, and we asked him to tell Kayla to cancel the wine. He didn't. From a liability standpoint, this manager is not looking out for his restaurant. The option with 1 step vs. 4 steep steps. Hmmm, which one presents a larger liability? Not to mention his service failures. Overall, I'm very disappointed. Kayla deserves a better manager.

    The food was nice, but we were waiting for the food for over an hours. I suppose at bus tour with tourists is coming there frequently, since all the servers were prepared. It’s just not so nice for other guests, to ignore them then

    Pour un 10e anniversaire de vie commune,nous avions réservé deux semaines d’avance. j’avais précisé si possible, une petite table tranquille… Lorsque nous sommes arrivés on s’est fait accueillir uniquement en anglais par la personne à la porte… Bon pas si grave. Ensuite, je suis allé stationner la voiture quand je suis entré à l’intérieur ma conjointe était assis au bar J’ai redemandé Est-ce que vous avez préparé une petite table un peu à l’écart? À ce moment le restaurant était à 10 % plein La jeune fille me pointe une table qui est situé entre deux gros groupes je lui dis gentiment que c’est le pire endroit où nous installer. Gentiment elle va voir Son gérant, il nous propose de nous mettre dans le couloir à l’extérieur du restaurant ?!?!? Elle va me montrer la table, évidemment ça me convient pas , nous rentrons à l’intérieur et elle nous réinstalle entre les deux groupes de personnes. Évidemment, je me dis que ça n’a aucun bon sens, quelques secondes par la suite la jeune fille qui a pris 30 minutes pour nous déplacer d’un endroit à l’autre me dit qu’il va falloir manger rapidement parce que la table est réservée l’heure suivante !!!!!!!!! Nous nous sommes levés et nous sommes sortis du restaurant sans avoir commandé nous sommes allés ailleurs à l’auberge Saint Gabriel et nous avons eu Une soirée magnifique ,

    We had a lovely family dinner. My husband said the burger was one of the best he’d ever had. The mussels were fresh and delicious. Cream brûlée was light and flavorful. Out waiter was terrific and the hostess was able to seat us earlier than our reservation which helped us out a great deal. We’ll definitely be back.

    We were visiting Montreal and wanted to try French cuisine to celebrate my Mom's birthday. Our server Marie-Florence was very friendly and attentive. I had selected a few dishes to share but was stuck on choosing something refreshing that is not meat. Marie-Florence recommended the Seabass dish which was excellent and complemented the rest of the selection very well. Between the Mussels, Beat Salad, Duck Confit and the Seabass we had a good meal that is satisfying and tasty.

    The risotto was undercooked, the steak frites was chewy and fries we not the thin delicate fries you’d expect from a restaurant going for. French vibe. Pub quality food at a premium price. Won’t be back.

    Gaspar Brasserie Française à Montréal est un joyau culinaire qui vous transporte directement au cœur de la France. Dès que vous entrez, l'ambiance chaleureuse et accueillante crée une atmosphère propice à une expérience gastronomique exceptionnelle. Le menu propose un éventail de plats français classiques, chacun préparé avec les meilleurs ingrédients et une attention évidente aux détails. Le coq au vin et le confit de canard sont des plats phares, débordant de saveurs riches et authentiques. La sélection de vins est tout aussi impressionnante, avec une liste soigneusement élaborée de vins français qui complètent parfaitement la cuisine. Le personnel est amical, compétent et attentionné, veillant à ce que chaque client se sente bien pris en charge. Bien que l'expérience globale soit remarquable, quelques points mineurs à améliorer incluent des pâtes occasionnellement trop cuites et un choix musical quelque peu éclectique qui semble parfois déplacé. Néanmoins, Gaspar Brasserie Française reste une destination gastronomique de premier ordre à Montréal, offrant un véritable goût de la France avec une touche de charme local.

    Good food and good service. Tables were packed in, and every one was seated. This clearly shows its popularity but it also made for an incredibly noisy atmosphere. Not too much to do about that but the place was pretty nice.
