Only saving grace for this restaurant was the food was excellent. Everything else was extremely poor. The hostess didnt even acknowledge us for 8 minutes when we were standing at the front then was too busy answering the phone then to acknowledge the people in front of her. The waitress was awful as well very poor service. Never checked in on us didnt bring bread we ordered or side plates for our appetizer was no where to be found so had to ask another server to bring them for us.

The overall experience for the four of us was great. The service was the best we had in a restaurant since Covid. Mr Hi made our night with his long experience, his sens of humour and his capacity to show up at the right time. Amélie was also wonderful. We’ll go back!

After all the good reviews we decided to go . The service was amazing. Food was good but I can't say I was impressed.
The coffee, in my view, was horrible. It tasted stale.
The reason I do not rate it as a 5 is because at the point when I made my online reservation - there is a field that asks if there is a special occasion. I clearly marked that it was my daughter's 20th birthday. No one acknowledged this.. for me that's fine but don't ask for this information if it is will be acted on.
For me the element that stood out was the staff and the fact that we did not have to wait long to get our food.

Nos entrée était froide mais après l’avoir mentionné il nous en a ramèner une sans problème mais par la suite les steak demander medium/saignant on été servis bleu pour 2 personnes et un expresso allongé a été servis tiède également. Le boss boy à également desservis la table en empilant tout les assiettes devant une personne et en habitant son espace complètement pour plusieurs secondes ce qui n’était pas une technique très adéquate. La nourriture était bonne et le service en général aussi. Toutefois pour un resto de cette trempe je m’attendais a des cuisson de steak à point et des plats/cafés chaud. Belle sélection de vin d'Amérique du Nord. Sensiblement dans la même catégorie que le Brasserie Lucilles je recommanderais celui-ci avant le Maggie oakes.

Service was slow and less than responsive at Maggie Oakes. The portion sizes were massive in the Prix Fixe selections, which was nice in terms of pricing and value, but went beyond the concept of "tasting". Not a fan of the markings on the wine glasses with the option of a "small" or "large" pour of wine. I'd be a maybe on recommending this place to a friend.

This restaurant had every opportunity to be excellent, but instead it was a solid 7/10. Not having the regular steak on the menu the night we dined there was disappointing, considering they age/cure/store their own meat in the dining room where you can see the coolers...
Despite that, we returned the next day for breakfast, and it was even more lackluster. Breakfast order for my husband was wrong, so we had to send it back and I ate alone. Toast was hard and cold. Just generally uninspired :( Which is sooo too bad, because the location is perfect, and the staff are very good and helpful and not too hover-ing!

The location is lovely. Right in the heart of Old Montreal. Not easy for parking or trying to get out of the area in a Saturday night but it’s to be expected.

Food was good. Portions are not that big but satisfying.

Will we return. Probably. Not the best place I’ve eaten in Montreal considering their prices are a bit expensive, but it was enjoyable.

No doubt, we will be back to Maggie Oaks! Go when you have time to spend and aren’t in a hurry to eat; my one criticism would be that the service is slow. Food is both beautiful and delicious, the table d’hôtel is great value… good cocktails, nice wine list, lovely setting.

The food was okay, with great service and a good ambiance. But like everything in Old Montreal, it's overpriced. For $100 a person, you can find way better quality in the less touristic areas. But the desserts were really good, and the restaurant is beautiful and clean. Overall we had a good time.
