Grill
Jellyfish Montreal proposes shareable dishes with asian influences. Its "Crudo + Charcoal" concept is the duality of raw foods and the charcoal grill. All is complimented the sommelier's wine list or the mixologist's cocktails!
Located in Old Montreal, between Griffintown and the Old Port, Jellyfish Montreal is a must when in the city. Ranked as one of the best restaurants in Old Montreal, Jellyfish is a reference for hotel-boutique concierges.

This is my second time visiting Jellyfish and both experiences have been fantastic. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is really nice. We ordered the Tomahawk Ribeye which is cut at the table. Super happy with that choice. The rest of the menu items we ordered were top-notch as well. I can't wait to come back next time we are in town.

Food was amazing as usual. Service was great, waitress was nice but one tiny critique: i felt rushed to order, she would finish our phrases or would start walking away before we were done talking. I felt like i had to hold on to her arm to not feel like i had to blurt out my order.
So maybe a few more waitresses would be good. Other than that, the food is outstanding, absolutely love the chef! Ambiance is great. One of my top recommendations for Montreal/old port

Nous sommes allez plusieurs fois au Jellyfish. Cuisine égale, très bien fait, bien présentée. Coup de coeur pour la betterave, tartares, rotelles à la moele, vivaneau entier. Les deux seuls aspects négatifs sont que le restaurent est très populaire et de ce fait, très bruyant. La facture est assez salée également (facilement $100/personne quand on prend 2 verres de vin chaqu'un). Mais je vais y retourner c'est certain.

Our daughter has a nut allergy; it seemed to us from their lack of options that Jellyfish is not concerned with serving people whose needs make them vary from the standard menu. Most of their fare is made using planet oil, or has nuts as part of the recipe, and apparently they are not able or willing to mKe adjustments on a “busy Friday night” (their words).
So, how fortunate that they were able to serve their adult filet to our 12 year old (the most expensive item ion the menu), and. Of course, they had to charge full price.
Oh, and by the way, If you want to sit outdoors and enjoy a summer evening, try a restaurant down the street. Though several tables were open the whole time we were there, the manager insisted they “were spoken for” (which typically means they don’t seat Open Table customers there).
$270 later, I’m leaving wishing I had never taken the chance.

While the food and service were fine, the noise level was deafening and made conversations nearly impossible without shouting, thereby feeding into the ever-increasing noise...

Everything was great and would have been five stars, except our filet was over cooked and chewy. Unfortunately we had to send it back and they explained it was the last of the filet. Fun atmosphere and nice building. Overall we loved it.

Great overall experience, music was a little too loud. We were a table of 4 and it was hard to converse.
Flavors were unique and delicious.
Wine list was good.

Where to start? We showed up for our reservation and they told us if we didn’t sit at the bar they had another seating later and we would be asked to leave early. Huh? What the heck is a reservation for then? Learned an hour later that they had a giant party taking over the restaurant. Well if you have a party, maybe you should let your other guests know that ahead of time? Food was solid but service was minimal, due in part to the big party that took over the restaurant but our server was a bit snippy even before that. My cocktails were good but pours were skimpy. We asked for our food to be served in a certain order and they paid no attention to our request. Goes to show that if your chef wins competitions, that may say something about your food but it doesn’t say you run your restaurant well.

Terribly disappointing. Would not return. Don’t recommend.

The food was descent. The overall service was mediocre. I expected better service from this restaurant. When I ask the waiter for recommendation, he told us pretty much everything was good, which I find unhelpful.
