I was really disappointed by the food . I ordered a salmon tartare as the main dish and it was not flavourful at all, the side salad was also bland .
My friend had a medium -cooked steak. The outside out of it was burnt and she could hardly cut it with a knife.
Otherwise the service was on point and the place has a great ambiance .

The waitress who met us at the door was not patient and was even rude. It leaves a very bad first impression. The other servers were very friendly, the place is nice and the food is good.

Très belle découverte. Les assiettes généreuses et toutes en saveurs, ont largement comblé notre palais. Un conseiller en vin, qui a su nous proposer plusieurs options avec un originalité dans ces choix, qui nous a bien satisfait. Professionnel avec un côté givré que j’ai apprécié. Le service très courtois et amicale nous a vite mis a l’aise, pour profiter du moment. Valéry, est expérimenté et professionnel sachant prendre soin de ces clients. On se revoit bientôt pour découvrir de nouvelles saveurs! Petit clin d’oeil aussi au barmand qui a su charmer nos oreilles avec une playlist diversifiée jusqu’à nous resortir John Denver 😉

Bonjour! N'eut été du très bon service, j'aurais été quelque peu déçu. Si le potage, la salade était bon et le dessert original, le plat principal ne m'a pas fait vivre l'impression d'en avoir pour le $90 du seul menu accessible hier soir. Or je n'avais pas été prévenu qu'il n'y aurait qu'un seul menu, ni que ce serait à ce prix. J'avais vérifié votre menu sur le web avant de me rendrez chez-vous hier et j'ai revérifié ce matin aussi pour constater à nouveau que ce n'était pas évident à moins de cliquer sur plusieurs liens, mais encore ce n'était pas clairement défini comme "un seul menu". Nous avions constaté que quelques personnes sont repartis à peine après s'être assise ayant pris connaissance du menu. Nous n'étions donc pas les seul surpris.
L'oiseau de mon assiette bien que correct est arrivé tiède; et je me serais satisfait du goût, mais à $90 j'aurais aimé une expérience plus goûteuse. Notre serveur et son équipe ont sauvé la mise.
Par ailleurs j'ai vu votre barmann, qui dans un empressement étonnant dans un passage de la salle à manger, (alors qu'il n'y avait personne au bar) bousculé un petit enfant dans un passage en s'excusant à peine; comme si ce n'était pas grave. Était-ce parce qu'un enfant ...ça ne paie pas? De plus la personne qui m'accompagnait m'a fait remarqué que l'enfant était avec une famille afro-américaine. Si c'est le cas cela soulève aussi d'autres questions.

Très bon service de notre serveur qui a su bien nous expliquer les plats. Brunch très copieux et délicieux. Ont a adoré les cafés latté et le shooter « détox ».
Juste la coupe de champagne à 27$ … un peu excessif a notre goût.

Nice Christmas prix fixe dinner. Great service. Food was good - only problem was that the arctic char was a bit overcooked - everythingvelse was delicious. Nice list of wines by the glass and dessert was exceptional. The veggies, soupe and starters were delicious. I had steak and it was well-cooked. Would definitely return.

Went to celebrate a birthday dinner and was disappointed that a few items weren’t available that evening (Tomahawk steak and lobster tails). Service was great though and so was the wine. Location is also very convenient, right in the heart of the Old Port.

Très bon restaurant. J’ai adoré le service et même quand la cuisine était fermé la serveuse a pu trouver une alternatif pour que mes deux derniers invités puisse manger. Mon entrecôte vieillie était super bon ! J’y retournerai assurément.

Very loud, it was difficult to have a normal conversation.
Also the table are quite packed so it’s very difficult to have an intimate dinner.
People are very nice and service is good.
Meat quality was great, but appetiser was very minimal for the price paid.
Overall too expensive for what you eat/drink.

Outstanding food, ambiance, service and location. The best meal I have had in a long time! Elisabeth was our server and she was just fantastic! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Each one of us at the table had something different off the menu and all dishes were just magnificent. I'm already looking forward to my next meal at Maggie Oakes!

Maggie Oakes was moreso of a disappointment than enjoyable. The food was sub par compared to what you can get for lesser of the value elsewhere in Old Montreal! My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary with high expectations but didn’t enjoy or meet our expectations. The complimentary dessert didn’t even say happy anniversary but rather happy 3rd birthday. Service was alright and food was overpriced for the lack of flavour. Seemed like a disorganized environment. Would not return or recommend.

Steaks are a bit over-rated and not cooked exactly to demand. Kansas cut not available, which is surprising for a steak oriented restaurant. Otherwise great global atmosphere
