The welcome and service were excellent. Plates are generous and well presented. The lobster brochette with risotto was so delicious as was the molten lava cake for dessert.

The food was good, but a little over priced. the Mac and cheese was very good, but the lobster brochette should come with 2 and the grilled lobster needs to be about 20$ less

Butter had freezer burn. Some of the flavor profiles were bizarre (oe cauliflower soaked in orange juice and fennel in shrimp cocktail sauce). Seems every dish had something a bit off in it. Has potential, but not for me.

We went to celebrate my moms bday during lunch hour. I took the lobster roll , the plate had tons of fries while my mom took the lobster stick which is like a salad with lobster tail on a stick on it. She took some fries as per she knew salad would not fill her that much. We took cocktails we ordered the bloody pincette but they where out of crab leg n gave us shrimps instead, the drink was so so . For dessert my
Mom got the lemon pie the waitress put a little light candle on it , the pie was delicious!The service was good very friendly!

I loved the food and the ambiance. The cocktail I took (M. Collins) was just perfect. Because of the location it was difficult to find parking but it was worth it. The lobster mac and cheese, as well as the fish and chips were delicious. The only thing missing for me in the menu would have been fried calamari. And that to the menu and it will be 10/10.

My lobster roll was good, my friend didn’t eat her salmon burger as it was soggy. The menu had a price but the invoice had another price. Wine glass announced at 10$ was charged 11$, salmon burger lunch special announced at 20$ was charged 22$. Not nice at all. Very disappointed

Service courtois et professionnel par Jean-Philippe (prénom de mémoire). Il a su bien nous guider pour le choix du vin...qu'il a su servir avec une cadence appropriée et une présence à la fois attentionnée et discrète.

Guédille et raviolis au homard exquis.

Delicious food and excellent service. We go there early and started at the bar where our bartender recommended a couple of amazing cocktails. The superb service continued at our table where our waiter was attentive despite the crazy busy night.

My husband had the sea food entrée and found the shrimps too small for this kind of plate, and the lobster was not fully cooked, a little too raw.
I had the lobster guédille and was quite satisfied
We had excellent service from Rudy and did let him know about the sea food platter

Belle soirée sur la terrasse avec météo surprenante pour un 23 septembre! Nos plats (queues de homard et gambas) étaient moyen; sans doute sommes-nous gâtés avec la qualité habituelle de la gastronomie montréalaise. Si j’y retournais, j’opterais pour la guedille et le club sandwich qui avaient l’air plus réussis dans les assiettes voisines.

Our first Old Port dining experience since before Covid proved to be a huge success. We requested outdoor seating but a quick peek inside the restaurant has us hoping for a return visit to dine inside. We were happy to see that they’re following Covid protocols- they checked our vaccination status and required a photo i.d. Terrific wait staff: attentive, funny and patient (I had A LOT of questions about some of the menu items). Our starters consisted of oysters for my husband and a type of shrimp fritter with corn and cucumber salad for myself. Both appetizers were delicious. We opted for the lobster rolls as our main course and they came with generous portions of salad AND fries. Again, very tasty (could have used a bit more lobster in the lobster rolls). Between the quality of the food and the people watching while we ate, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Food was pretty bad, the lobster often overcooked, served with unimpressive sides. Had the lobster tail skewer, which was served on some stir fried veggies, really not great and expensive. Watermelon salad with feta was not freshtasting and the salad leaves beneath were soggy.

Nice new lobster bar in the Old Port but the quality of the food is below par. Had lobster Mac and cheese and grilled lobster tail. Being from the east coast the meals were a bit under for the price. The oysters however were fresh and top shelve. Not sure I’d go back.

On était déçus de la cuisson du homard pour la brochette, il était trop cuit. Concernant la guedille, le pain devrait être plus moelleux et beurré, ça manque de gourmandise. Le service était extra.

Nous sommes venus pour le homard, malgré que ce soit en septembre, ce qui n'est pas nécessairement la meilleure saison pour du homard frais pêché. Nous avons choisi la guédille et la brochette sur lit de légumes à l'orientale. La guédille était copieuse et très bonne. La brochette était belle et bonne, les légumes à l'orientale étaient exceptionnellement bons. Le Prosecco au verre était de bon rapport qualité-prix. Le dessert, une tarte au citron "déconstruite" était très bonne, compte tenu du fait qu'il fallait beaucoup d'imagination pour y voir une tarte. Le service était excellent (si on ne tient pas compte du fait que les pantalons du garçon auraient mérité un peu plus de soin).
