Steakhouse
There's a reason Forbes Magazine named us one of the Top 10 Steakhouses in the world. And why Moishes has become a Montreal favorite that has endured over 75 years. We think it's the authentic taste of each one of the old world favorites on our menu.

If you're an old friend, welcome back. We're always delighted to see you. We couldn't have come this far without you. If you haven't yet been, we warmly invite you to discover the taste for yourself, at our restaurant overlooking historic Saint-Laurent Boulevard (The Main.)

Ce n’est pas par hasard que le magazine Forbes nous ait désigné comme l’une des 10 meilleures maisons de steak au monde. Et que Moishes soit l’un des hauts lieux de la gastronomie montréalaise depuis plus de 70 ans. D’après nous, c’est à cause du goût authentique des mets à l’ancienne qui figurent sur notre menu.

Si vous êtes un habitué du restaurant, ce sera un plaisir de vous revoir. Nous sommes toujours ravis de vous accueillir.

Truly an outstanding restaurant. I brought a group of 4 guys here for bachelor party (quick note to say the guys were really tame, this is *not* a good fit for a wild party - it's a classy place). We were shown a really great time.

To start with, they bring bowls of house made pickles and coleslaw to the table along with the bread. These are products they sell in stores; it's a nice touch to be given giant bowls of them on the house. They are amazing products. There's a great variety of steaks with a wide price range too. A "junior" steak is very reasonably priced, but is more than enough for an adult meal. The steaks were huge, as were the sides. We honestly didn't pay much more here than we would have at a chain steakhouse like The Keg, but we had a way nicer meal and really incredible service.

The service here is something else and it's worth mentioning separately aside from everything else. The ratio of servers to guests surprised the entire group. It seems like there is at least one server for every three guests. Our water glasses were never empty. A cleared plate sat for less than a minute before it was a spotted and taken away. If we even glanced around to look for our server, a staff member would ask us what we needed and brought it right away. It was a really great experience.

This was a great addition to our trip, and I'm absolutely going to bring my family here the next time we visit Montreal.

It was very nice in an “old school” way. The atmosphere / decor was a bit tired but in a way that is the charm of the restaurant itself. The food was good and service was attentive.

Absolutely fabulous!
The Monte Carlo was delish! The Filet Mignon was juicy and not overcook! The waiter was very helpful with offering suggestions as well. Highly recommend!

I cannot say enough good things about Moishes. Everything was excellent and they were most accomodating when asked them to help with my proposal to my now fiance. It was a magical evening and we will always remember Moishes.

I would highly recommend Moishes to anyone who wants a really good meal... however the service what actually terrible. the Hostess was very sweet but our actually waiter was so rude, barely spoke and couldn't smile if you gave him a million dollars. But anyways I'd be back for that delicious Rib Steak!

The after 9pm menu is great value. Very busy with people still arriving to dine at 11 pm as we were leaving.
Many options to choose from in the After 9 pm menu. Sides are extra but can easily be shared. Would definitely return and do this again when in Mtl.

From the beginning we were greeted with judgmental stares from the host. The service was ok but a little pushy, my boyfriend has allergies and the waiter acted as if it was an inconvenience to him and said since he has “so many problems” he should just get a salad. My cocktail tasted like rubbing alcohol. The food was very underwhelming and disappointing since I was expecting a great meal based off of the amazing previous reviews. The steak was burnt on the outside and then bloody on the inside. Overall.... does not deserve the hype

Moises harkens you back to yesteryear with its large banquet style rooms, tall ceilings, and photo reminders of the faces who have visited this venerable steakhouse over the decades. People like Robert DeNiro who no doubt appreciated the delectables your table received upon your arrival. Firm kosher pickles, crunchy homemade coleslaw, and crusty fresh baguette and hearty rye breads that all combined made for quite the segue into the menu.

The grilled mushroom salad was delightful. Oyster mushrooms with just the perfect amount of grill taste coupled with mixed greens and a tangy vinaigrette made for the perfect first course. The matzo ball soup with delicious broth was excellent. It’s hard to find a non-overly salted broth but Moises delivers that.

Lenny the Somm suggested an incredible Italian wine that paired perfectly with our food choices.

The black cod with accompaniments was so good, and the gigantic boneless ribeye steak was such a treat to eat. The meat was of an excellent quality and cut.

The latkes were good, but they were a bit over cooked. Too crunchy on the outside for my husband’s taste, but perhaps crunchy on outside, soft on the inside is just his preference.

Overall exceptional unique experience. Thank you Moises!

The steak was cooked to the requested doneness; or severs were quick to attend to our requests and to unobtrusively refill our water; and our overall experience was wonderful.

We visited this restaurant because we knew beforehand that Moishes Steakhouse was one of Leonard Cohen’s favourite restaurant in Montreal. I ate lamb chops and my wife junior rib steak with delicious french red wine. Excellent meals, we really like food and atmosphere in this restaurant. Service was also extremely good. We can highly recommend this restaurant.

ALWAYS a stellar meal at Moishes! Being from Dallas, I'm a little spoiled by the number of good steakhouses there are within 30 minutes of me. But Moishes is my favorite. It's an integral part of every trip I make to Montreal.

We came here because several people recommended it.. although I was hesitant at first and was sure it would be a tourist trap, I am SO happy I was wrong. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff were exceptional, and the decor was exactly what an upscale steakhouse should look like. We loved it and would definitely come back!!

Came here for my birthday because of the great reviews. Unfortunately, the service was very poor - the server never introduced himself and never checked in on how our meals were. I ordered the 45 day dry age steak, and it was terrible. It was well cooked, but it was just not good, almost as if the aged crust was still on there. I really wanted to like this, and rarely give poor reviews, this was just extremely disappointing when you spend $550CAD on a 4 person meal to be disappointed.

My wife and I came here for our anniversary. We had the good fortune to have Ari as our server. She was very friendly and yet very professional. I ordered my steak to be done ‘medium’ but it came out much too rare. Without the slightest hesitation, it was taken back to the kitchen and brought back to me in short order, cooked perfectly. They also brought me out a new serving of both potato and mushrooms. I hadn’t asked for those to be replaced, they just did it because it’s the right thing to do.

Over the years I have eaten here 5 or 6 times. The service and food have always been excellent but Ari was the best I have had the pleasure to be served by.
