Went out for an anniversary, had an amazing time. The staff was super friendly and the food was very good. Menu is expensive (knew this going in) but my bill was less than I expected, very pleased with the whole experience.

Went for my boyfriend’s birthday, it was such a great experience ! Food simple and well done! I hated lobster until I had a bite and it was buttery, melting, soooo goood.
The peppercorn sauce was super tasty as well. No regret!

The service and our waiter was great! He really went above and beyond. The food was really good. Great selection of steaks and wagyu. Sides were delicious, but found them pretty small when doing a family style meal. Overall great place to eat!

Unecessarily expensive. Most annoying thing was that the restaurant was half empty but they initially tried to seat our party of 4 at a large table for 6 that was literally on top of the entryway - when there were plenty of empty tables for 4. The food was good but not worth the price. Also, felt like a steak place that could be anywhere; nothing about it captured the ambiance of Montreal.

For a restaurant with such a historical reputation, I expected something more “over the top.” Have been to other restaurants by same owner and had an exceptional experience. Just wasn’t worth the money.

Main meals were not good at all, so they offered to replace it with a regular steak and fries.
I ordered 2 cheesecakes, one as a surprise with a “happy birthday note”, requested way upfront, no notes at all (even if they called me 1.5 hours before to reconfirm and ask me, if it could have been written in English instead French and I said yes)
They also mess with the coffee, my boyfriend asked for a decaf and after they came back and said, ohhh sorry no decaf today, the order didn’t come in
Homard bisque appetizer was too smoky and too spicy
Let’s say that my Surprise Birthday Lunch was way more surprising than should be, and definitely NOT in the good way

I was a bit disappointed, as the prices went up and the size of the steak went down. I always eat the Big Lou’s Ribeye and this time it wasn’t nearly as big as the ones I always had. I don’t know, if I will go there again!

We had dinner before the game. The service was excellent and they made sure we were served and done in time to make the game! Very nice!
They mixed up our meal and my steak was overcooked. Dispite the temp of my steak, the food was very good.
This is a busy place and very loud.

I was really excited to eat here based on the reviews and my friends recommendations, sadly the food didn’t live up to the big hype. The steak we were served which was supposed to be well marbleised was overly chewy, under seasoned and most definitely not marbleised. The other plates were good but when you’re paying 400$ for your meal, really you want the the food to be great not just pass as good.

My first time here and will be my last time.
2 people cost 600$ Plus tip.
Lobster was tuff / Jumbo shrimp were tuff / lobster mash was cold / my steak was ok but chewy / staff was aggressive / they all seemed confused. The old guy who cuts up the food was very pushy wait staff kept bumping into me and not apologizing.The music was so loud couldn’t even talk with my friend. Not very good for a fancy restaurant. I felt rushed and ripped off when I left. As we were leaving one of the waiters bareled through us with a tray of food as we were trying to walk up the stairs. Not professional at all. Very sloppy. For that kind of money I expect a 5 star treatment but I feel I Barley got a 2 star treatment. So I give it 2 stars for a horiable experience.

I got their signature steak which was just OK. It seemed a little crusty. The presentation was beautiful but the overall quality was just ok - not mind blowing like it should be especially for the price which was super expensive. Same quality as 40 Westt - sometimes good sometimes amazing. The best steak is still RibNReef IMHO.

The steak was cold and cooked to a med-rare instead of medium like I asked for. The server told me that the cooks sometimes have there own thoughts on how meat should be cooked. I think they should stick to what the customer asked for!

One of the best steakhouses in Montreal! Great aged beef and seafood! So many choices to choose from with anyone’s budget . You pay fir what you get. Nice wine list as well from by the glass to bottles and magnums! We tried the Waygu beef a d 2 Atlantic lobsters. Omg delicious ! The side of garlic mashed potatoes and fried onions were delicious as well! For desert we shared the chocolate cheesecake! Fabulous service thruout !

Had a good pre hockey game meal with choice of a wedge salad or lobster bisque soup (both were good). Then we had a PETITE filet mignon with a shave of truffle, sautés mushrooms a mini grave boat with au jus & a nice size bone marrow, all served on a
mini butchers block ($45).

Took my husband here for a special birthday dinner. Overall we were happy however not overly impressed. Service was okay but felt a little ignored which was annoying for the price you pay you to be there. We both ordered filet mignon. Mine was cooked properly however my husband ordered his medium and came out extremely rare. For an establishment like this I would not expect that, had to send it back for more time on the grill. On my online reservation I specified it was his birthday and they brought over a dessert which was very good however the table next to us verbally told our same waiter it was one of their birthday and was brought out the same dessert with a sparkler so that was a bit disappointing.

When we arrived the host greeted us like this: what can i do for you? I mean yeah we are black clients but im in a restaurant not a store so it should have been hi do you have a reservation? Then she givrs us that the 45$ menu which is the pre theatre one. No one said at the time we booked that that menu was mandatory. So i tell my waiter that I want the regular menu he shouts it starts aT 7:30. It was 6:15. So i get up to ask the host for a regular menu which she gave me and said just order a drink and entree while time passes then at 7 you can use the menu. So we order a bottle of wine the waiter poored it in an ugly Flask while the ones on the other tables was amazing. Then our waiter didn’t do the demonstration of the sea food and meat to our table. He did it to all the other table. We where over dressed everyone was in jeans and shirt my husband was in suit and tie and i was in a dress and heals. Besides that it was a great experience my budget was 500$ and i stayed in it. Overall my husband had a blast for his birthday. Theres a waiter i dnt remember his name he was soooo nice!! He called the otherd to sing happy birthday to my husband and although he wasnt out main waiter he made sure we where doing fine, he poored us some wine and even changed our glass of water. He told us ti take off t time and enjoy the evening.

Atmosphere and service were excellent. Waiters were outstanding once one was allocated to us and had our attention. Attentive without being overbearing or fussy and added some nice touches with their birthday choruses and the wine decantering at the tables. Food was very good overall. The side dishes were amazing and the steak was very good - I would not say it’s the best I have had, but cooked as I asked and I enjoyed it. Would absolutely go back and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Montreal.
