We had a delicious meal with top notch service for my son’s birthday. Sat downstairs in a quiet Center booth so we can see the whole restaurant They gave us rapini & his birthday cake slice on the house. My son & husband shared the 32once strip lion with the bone-in cooked perfectly to medium rare. The food was pricey, I.e. house mushrooms for $20 but this was a special occasion so we let that slide. Overall great attentive service

Charlie is the best waiter I have seen in a long time. Always serving from the left even if it meant walking a far distance to do it.
Vast knowledge of meal preparation.
I would only recommend this restaurant in Montreal for steak enthusiasts.

I took a client here last week and we had a very dissapointing experience. The steaks came out before we were finished our very boring and flavourless chop salads (which we only ordered because we were told the soup was too salty that day). I had a chip in my wine glass and instead of comping me for the wine the server just switched the glass and transferred the wine in front of me. The server poured sparkling wine into my client's still water. We ordered the chocolate cake which tasted as though it was just taken out of the freezer - we mentioned it was very dry to the server so his solution was to bring us chocolate sauce to pour over the cake. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially not to impress a client.

I’ve been to Queue de Cheval dozens of times and the food, ambiance and service are always top notch, A1. Steaks are perfect and seafood is great! This particular dinner, our service was beyond great, it was the best I’ve had. Pedro was helpful, fun and just the right level of service. My clients from Toronto were highly impressed, I recommend this restaurant with confidence. Bravo!

Food was amazing, love the atmosphere and the people. Just felt the waiter was always trying to upsell and wasn’t listening to my request. Could have been a language barrier.

Was my second time and would go back again.

Oysters Rockefeller were to die for, crab cake was sooooo good, not a lot of filler, mostly crab. Crab legs were outstanding, black cod OH MY!! Dirty martini was a bit salty, but I did request it. Great experience and food. Worth every dollar

WOW! gotta tell you this is one of the better finds I have come across. The staff and place were great and the lobster cocktail app was spectacular. Truly one of the best dishes. My wife who doesn't eat fish at all, tried it and liked it as well. Steaks were great and cooked to perfection. Coming from the NY/NJ area we are spoiled a bit when it comes to steak, but we felt right at home and we loved it. Will definitely go back.

The service was absolutely fantastic. But starting with the fact that they were out of Macallan 12 after everyone else got their drinks was a telling sign. The $325 each for the 2 Tomahawk steaks was like burning money. Both requested medium, one came out rare. It was served family style so you just can’t really cook it more so it ended up being a well done mess. Both were generally lacking flavor. When seasoning (Rosemary I think) and the taste of the grill (mmm charcoal) dominate the flavor profile, something is seriously wrong. The 5lb lobster (@ $50/lb) saved the night. It was cooked perfectly and was surprisingly sweet for being so big. The place is huge, very energetic and maybe we should have ordered individual steaks. All I can say is that for the money (over $1,400 for 5 with tip) there are many other steakhouses that we prefer.

My husband and I don't typically dine at places like La Queue de Cheval because it's not in our budget. Eleven years ago we dined here with friends. Our friends loved it so much they bought us a gift certificate and 10 years ago we dined here again. This past January my husband was diagnosed with cancer and since January our lives have been a roller coaster. Two weeks prior to coming to Montreal for our annual trip a scan showed my husbands tumor didn't go away as well as expected it to. At that time he was scheduled for a very complex surgery, which of course, happened to be when we were to go to Montreal. Because of the complexity of the surgery we seeked a second expert opinion and that opinion was we were possibly jumping the gun on the surgery so to go under surveillance for now AND go to Montreal. We so needed this fun time away. Considering all the circumstances I decided we needed to splurge...and return to La Queue de Cheval. I wanted quality and ambiance. A quiet, romantic setting to spend time with my husband as I previously remembered. We were surprised to see the building moved, but no big deal. While we dined we were dismayed by the screaming and swearing coming from the owner to the cooks. We have never experienced a situation like this and sadly it ruined our last evening in Montreal. It was impossible to carry on any conversation with my husband besides about what we were seeing, because of the noise level, the tense staff, the constant bumping into our chairs, etc. I believe the food and wine were very good, but I didn't get to enjoy it or my husband as I intended to. At the end of the night we had a $646 bill to listen to constant staff belittlement. I wish we could have a redo at another restaurant to get the quality time I was looking for.

We’ve been going to that place every year. This year we were very disappointed. All steaks came out cold with a poor service on top of it. For the money they charge they should be getting 5 stars instead of 1. They lost another good customer.

We were there for race week. I have been there several times and the food/service has always been on point. This year was different. They raised prices significantly for the weekend and it seemed either they were overbooked or understaffed. Bread never came out until we asked, oysters came out with no sauces, steak came out mostly over cooked and cold. Also the thickness of the steak was considerably thinner than last year. They did the right thing by removing several items from the bill but we will not be back. The place has just gotten too “Ritzy” for our taste. We came with a party of 10 and we all felt the same way. By the way..make sure you ask for regular wine list. Otherwise you get a reserve wine list with wines starting at $300 per bottle.

The service was quick when we got there. The wedge salad and the chocolate lava were good. My Husband’s steak there was no taste. My steak tasted and smelled to beefy. People beside us left after there salad (no idea why). The servers started to swear at one another. No one came to see how our main meal was. After the cleared our main meal it took a long time to get coffee and dessert. Our bill also took a long time. When leaving at the door the staff were to business swearing at ear other ( there were about 4-5 of them) no one opened the door for us and didn’t even thank us for coming. We will not be turning.

The food was amazing, it’s not the type of place you go to for value as the price of certain meats they carry is high, but you go in there knowing that. The noise level with music was too loud for us. I felt we couldn’t have good conversation without yelling across to each other. The food and service were amazing though.

Soirée totalement gaspillée par un propriétaire grossier qui a passé une vingtaine de minutes à crier sans respect après ses cuisiniers ( cuisine ouverte sur salle à manger ), un abus de pouvoir gênant. Scène unique et irréelle où il invectivait sans retenu devant la clientèle et employés de planchers... un malaise profond ... mon seul regret est de ne pas m'être levé pour lui demander de se la fermer et de faire preuve de respect envers ses employés et sa clientèle...
