We were seated right away and greeted by our server which was professional and did check in with us a few times during our meals, considering they were busy the service was good, and we will return.

It started with the hostess seating us by throwing an adult menu at my four-year-old. Then the waiter Gio, Kept touching me the entire meal. And was aggressive with his recommendations for order.

There were 9 of us, and we all enjoyed our dinner very much.
The only downside was that we were seated at the higher tables, and these can be uncomfortable to senior ladies. But, we managed okay.
The food was excellent, service was good (sometimes a little slow), friendly and happy server.
All in all, it was a really good evening.

Everyone should evaluate their own thoughts, don't ask me to speak for others. My dinner was good, but my partner's was quite cool, not tasty or appropiate.

The restaurant is always busy and therefore a bit noisy. Our server was outstanding. We had a guest who had food allergies and she was so concerned and checked up on us a number of times. Great place for families to gather.

It was good, we come here every so often. Went for mother’s day this year and although it wasn’t super busy for lunch at the time we went, our server messed up quite a few times. Realizing she may have been new and stressed out we didn’t bother to complain but did end up with 8 cups on the table for 3 people when only 5 drinks were ordered (2 being water), one of the sides was wrong, had to ask 3 times for straws, and my side of coleslaw was literally such a small portion that it was only 1 mouthful. Food was a little on the dry side that afternoon but still had flavour, decor has been updated well and it looks good in the restaurant. Enjoyed overall, got to spend some quality time with the loved ones.

Out waitress seemed disconnected at first and forgot to order our appetizer but as her tables started to all receive food she warmed up and made a point of asking specific questions to pass on recommendations for. She was friendly and asked about our evening plans. The guy at the table beside us felt too close and was watching videos too loudly on his phone. The reservation worked great and it was nice to show up and be seated right away. Though we noted a birthday on the reservation and nobody in the restaurant acknowledged it. One steak was over cooked but the rest of the meal was very good.

The main issue I had was that the fajitas were bland. The vegetables had no flavour and tasted like they were steamed. They should have been sautéed properly with some seasoning. It would have also been nice to have a bigger variety of vegetables. My on tap beer was flat. We had the mile high for dessert and you needed a chisel to get through the peanut butter.

We booked our reservation online and would recommend to add a section where you can select if you need a high chair.
When we arrived all the high chairs were taken up already. We were given a booster seat to put on the leather bench, which didn’t work very well for a 20 month old.

Montana's does not honor reservations made on Open Table any longer. We found out when we arrived, with that said, they made us feel very welcome and got us a table (for 8) very quickly during a busy service. Great service and great food. Will absolutely be back.

So glad we made a reservation as the restaurant was very busy. Staff was lovely, but it took 45 minutes for us to get our food. Quite noisy, which made chatting to those across the table a bit difficult, but the food was excellent!

After an unfortunate experience last week, we gave Montana’s a second chance so our overseas guests could experience Canadian ribs! General Manager Tom and team blew us away with superb service and amazingly awesome melt in your mouth ribs! Huge thanks from us and our European family visitors!

We had our daughter and her boyfriend visiting from overseas and looked forward to treating them to ribs at Montana’s. When we arrived it was clear that they hadn’t blocked a table for our booking but fortunately one became available. We sat down and ordered drinks, three glasses of wine and a soft drink for the designated driver. The soft drink arrived, but the wine didn’t. When the waitress returned to our table she said: “Oh yeah, I have to tell you we don’t have any ribs left.” It was 7 pm. She said it would take about an hour for them to prepare a batch and offered a free appetizer if we wanted to wait. When we said we’d consider that, she said she would go check the exact wait time with the kitchen. She returned and said it would take “at least an hour and a half”. We decided to leave.

This is my third try at Montanas and the first time my food was good, and the two others with us were ok, however my husband had a steak and it was so tough and grizzly, he could not cut it with a steak knife. He did complain and they rectified with a free dessert.

Will not be back.
