Nice menu with a variety of items at different price points. Service was attentive. Ambience / decor is very nice. Tables are far apart so it feels private. Very nice bar area. Highly recommended.

C'est la deuxième fois que nous nous rendons dans ce restaurant.
Alors que la première expérience avait été très agréable à tous points de vue ( sauf le volume de la musique), nous avons été déçus par la qualité des mets lors de notre deuxième visite: Viande et poisson trop cuits; nous avions commandé une salade , pensant que le plat n'en offrait pas; nous nous sommes retrouvés avec deux salades . Le cadre reste superbe.

J'étais allée à quelques reprises peu de temps après l'ouverture, mais j'avais été déçue. Une fois par le service, une autre fois par la qualité de la nourriture et je regrettais qu'il en fut ainsi compte tenu de l'ambiance extraordinaire. Toutefois, un ami qui d'ailleurs était avec moi dans les premiers temps, m'a informée que tout s'était grandement amélioré. Alors j'y suis retournée lundi midi accompagnée d'une amie de l'extérieur de Montréal qui découvrait votre magnifique endroit pour la première fois. Nous avons toutes les deux été agréablement servies. Ce fut un plaisir. Conclusion: Nous y retournerons assurément. Merci!
Salutations!

I dined here for my birthday dinner and was so pleased! Absolutely gorgeous room with beautiful decor and ambiance. Our server was very patient, polite, and informative. My partner started with the smoked salmon and practically licked his plate clean. I started with the caeser salad, which was a bit heavily dressed for my taste but still yummy. My partner had the wagyu beef entre, which was exceptional and perfectly cooked. I had the halibut with mussels and clams and it was INCREDIBLE. We also loved our drinks — dark & stormys and some Chardonnay from California. Overall, Henri Brasserie was totally amazing, but be prepared to spend $$$

Toujours enchanteur le lieu est magnifique.
C’est ma deuxième expérience, j’ai trouvé les portions petites et j’aurais aimé plus de verdure ou accompagnement dans ma salade rouge, juste du chou et des endives?
J’ai trouvé le choix des plats principaux un peu lourdaud pour la canicule...
Rognons, brandade, etc.
Plus d’audace et de fraîcheur svp
Aussi la théière est une catastrophe!
Le service Excellent et l’accueil parfait.

Nous adorons cet endroit. Le décor est magnifique. L'accueil et le service sont impeccables. La carte change souvent le midi ; il y a toujours une nouvelle salade au menu et elle est toujours délicieuse. Nous n'avons jamais été déçus par la nourriture. On va revenir souvent. Très bonne adresse au centre-ville.

Ne pourriez-vous pas traduire les choix de réponses?
Pour une brasserie française, des choix en anglais, c'est pour le moins étrange.

A pleasant Paris style bistro. For our appetizers we had the oysters, which were excellent. For the first time in 30 years we chose a Tournedos Rossini as our main course. It was very tender and cooked to perfection. Ordered French Fries, which unfortunately arrived by the time we had almost finished our main course.
Highly unusual for Montreal restaurants, the place was empty by the time we left at 10pm.

The place is beautiful, value is OK. Food was OK although presentation lacked lustre. Sat at the bar, in a festive mood but landed on a Barman that lacked personality. Although there was a charming French waiter who recommended frog legs. Was a hit and added a little fun to the night.
