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.

I go to Moishes once or twice a year as I live outside Quebec. I was disappointed with my visit to Moishes on June 9,2019. I didn't find the service was up to the normal standard. My steak arrived luke-warm and I had to send it back to be heated. No apology from our waiter. I'm not sure if it was just an off night for the staff or if a symptom of something else? Hopefully, on my next visit, the service will back to where it was on my previous visits.

This place was way too overhyped. The food was average, and was most definitely overpriced for the size and quality of the meal that you get. I don't know how it was rated in the Top 10 steakhouses in the world....

Our server was excellent. The food, however, was nothing more than high-average. The shrimp cocktail was ample but flavourless, and the steaks had a nice char and cooked well but also not outstanding. For the price I’d rather go to New York City.

Notre serveur nous a donné un service exceptionnel. La nourriture était sublime. Nous avons grandement apprécié notre première expérience chez-vous et bien que le prix était un peu plus haut à ce que je m'attendais, nous en ferons fort probablement l'une de nos sorties des grandes occasions. Et finalement pour ce qui est du bruit, peut-être que de distancer les tables les unes des autres serait une bonne solution.

Is the first time It happened
My husband asked for medium-well his steak and the one they brought was rare
He called the waiter and explain
He , then , took the steak explaining that they will cook it some more
When they brought it back it was completely burned and he was not able to eat it
My husband did not say anything, but Didn’t eat it either
He was disappointed of the customer service, anybody would’ve seen that was burned , but they brought it anyway

My first time and the food was great. One comment. It is clear that the meat is their business but when meat is brined, its a must to make sure its not to salty. Its was too salty. Same comment from the four of us.

This is a fantastic restaurant! We ordered a filet, which was cooked to perfection. While wonderful, I wouldn't say it's the best filet I've ever had. They have your normal steak sauce options. As an American, their A1 equivalent is called HP, it had a similar taste though is a bit sweeter. The crab cake had very little filler and was one of the best crab cakes I have ever had. they also bring bread, pickles, and coleslaw (which was amazing) for the table. We ordered two glasses of red wine. They definitely needed time to breathe, the bottles must have just been opened. The service was wonderful and attentive. We had a 6:15 reservation with a 3-year-old. The place was very kid friendly and all of the wait staff were kind to my little one. They don't have an official kids menu, though you're fine if your kid will eat steak and french fries (probably the most traditionally "kid-friendly" items they have). As far as the dress code, there were people in shorts and people a bit ore dressed up, it didn't seem to matter one way or the other.

I hadn’t been to Moishes since 2003!!! Always for a family event 12 + guests!!! So when we arrived at our table only to find a large family party right in front of our table..... the noise level was off the chart!!! And at one point we were screaming at each other to just communicate about the dessert... service & food are still AMAZING!!!
Will definitely return...
We shared the shrimp cocktail 5 jumbo & fresh shrimps, Caesar salad , grilled asparagus & we each had the steak frites!!!! Delicious!!! Birthday cake was complimentary thank you Moishes!!! Waiters were every where filling your water glass or replacing cutlery or plates!!! Hope to see you sooner than 2003!?!?

C’est vraiment une institution à Montréal, tout était parfait. J’y etait déjà allé il y a très longtemps. J’ai bien apprécié cette fois l’attention porté a mon égard. Le gâteau de Fête m’a vraiment fait chaud au cœur. C’est vraiment professionnel. Le stationnement a l’arrière c’est excellent, l’acceuil, le service. La formule après 21h , table d’hôte et vin a 50$ nous permet de profiter d’un plaisir gastronomique. Je vais y retourner définitivement. Merci

We were six people.one person ordered surf and turf. Half the steak was inedible. it was his birthday and didn’t want scène. he refused to call waiter . Sending food back is not in his nature. The shrimp were good but the baked potato was not. We were very disappointed that of all people his was not good. We spent about $480.00 . At this price there is no excuse for the fillet mignon should be bad. With the reputation of Moishe’s and the prices there is no excuse. I’m glad to be able to give this review. I wanted to say something in the restaurant, not to cause a scene but they should know rather than dismiss the matter and never to return. Thank you.

All around, we had a good experience at Moishe's. Unfortunately, this was a critical evening for a business meeting and I had even advised Moishe's of this fact here on OpenTable in the comments section many many weeks in advance. Nonetheless, the restaurant was sold out of their aged meat. The waiter proposed a cut that wasn't aged and was of course very good (not our first time at Moishe's); however, the disappointment lingered. You must understand that we were looking forward to the experience for some time. We'll be going back again; however, next time I'm going to see if it's possible to have that Porterhouse held exclusively for us so that it doesn't get grabbed by another group. Never in a million years could I imagine that Moishe's would run out of its aged meat. The debacle with the aged meat aside, the rest of the experience was very good. Gotta love those pickles... gotta love that cheesecake!
