    Food good BUT poor rating for service and timing. The server staff “Ronan” mentioned is another review, is still working there. Sloppy service, and Ronan seemed more interested in taking care of the larger crowd tables where he likely received a better gratuity; well not from me! I was not able to begin eating my appetizer, because although I had silverware, there was no napkin set with the table. Ronan looked away from my table, while adding water to my glass, and didn’t even notice he spilled a significant amount of water onto the tablecloth on my table, because he was looking at another distant table he was also serving at! The restaurant is either understaffed, or Ronan just drags his feet with lack of attentiveness: I spent over two hours for a dinner that was tasty, but took forever to receive the initial cocktail, then waiting forever for the appetizer, followed by another long wait for the main course; then to wait on the bill at the end, also took excessively long to receive. Mind you, I was not in a hurry to go anywhere after dinner, but clearly their lack of reasonable attentiveness to each table was apparent. If my meal had not been decent, I would have lowered my overall review of this restaurant.

    An excellent fine dining experience— each dish was beautifully presented by a skilled group of servers. The steak tartare, duck foie gras were amazing. Our younger diners gave the burgers a thumbs up. The roast duck was outstanding and the gnocchi rivaled some of our favorite Italian restaurants. Henri’s is inside the historic Birks Building and is well worth a look if you don’t have time (or budget) to have a meal here. A great restaurant, highly recommend.

    This is an upscale restaurant in the historic hotel. This place is for foodies. The portions are not big, but they serve very special menu items that we cannot find anywhere else. The dining room is in the original design and decoration, which is very elegant and beautiful. The servers are very formal and professional. The food and service are outstanding. We highly recommend this restaurant for special events as well as for city visitors and business travelers. It is an unforgettable experience in Montreal.

    Overall it was a good experience. The service was not up to what we were expecting. Our waiter was constantly disappearing and made us wait a long time between the service. The food was good, we took the beef (filet mignon and côte de bœuf. Food temperature was fine. The gnocci were delicious. Side dish, potatoes ratte and green beens were overcooked and drowned in the sauce. Next time we go will definitely take a banquette place like instead of a round table.

    Coming from New Orleans we have access to wonderful food in the French tradition. This bistro has good food. Terrine of Fois Gras was a little salty for my taste and had not set completely in the middle of the terrine. My wife opted for the cheese burger which was cooked to the correct temperature, however the bun was allowed to become a liquid mushy mess perhaps from to much time on the plate prior to arriving at the table. The frites were delish. My duck entree was dry and lacked any real flavor. The best part of the meal was the Apple Tart, moist with flavorful carmelized apples and delicious cream anglaise.

    Henri Brasserie in Montreal is a great place for lunch or dinner. Great vibe and true Parisian atmosphere ... Great food and service. The only complaint is that they seated us as a couple right next to a table with a large family with several small kids. I would advise the maître d to pay attention to those little things; they could have easily seated us by the window away from the racket. Overall, good experience and we would recommend it and we will be back.

    Ce n'est pas la première fois que nous déjeunons avec mon mari Chez Henri. Nous y retournons toujours avec le même plaisir. C'est une endroit qui nous plait beaucoup, pour célébrer les étapes importantes de notre vie comme nos anniversaires ou notre anniversaire de mariage (56 ans) ... comme ce fut le cas hier. Cela devait être le 15 mars 2024, mais malheureusement mon mari a eu un petit problème et à la toute dernière minute nous avons dû annuler. Nous serons de retour à l'automne. Au plaisir. Encore merci au Chef Cuisinier et à sa brigade. Nos papilles gustatives ont adoré !!!
