Restaurant Balsam Ratings and Reviews
Great for lunch with friends, too noisy for a business meeting.
Good, a bit Noisy but many, as we, were going to the hockey game. A bit slow getting food and the bill, once the meal was finished,
Tres bien et bon service
Excellent downtown spot to grab lunch or dinner. Our food was delicious and the service impeccable.
Ce n'est surement pas la faute de notre serveuse, mais ns sommes arrivés à l'heure, soit midi .
Notre nourriture est arrivé à 13:00. Beaucoup trop long.
The fried chicken was so good, I came back the next night!
A great place to celebrate a special occasion. The food and the wait staff were superb and although everything was upscale it was not a stuffy place.
Great ambiance, great patio, great location, great service but limited menu and mediocre food
Friendly, noisy, good food. A neighborhood gem.
Excellent before-Bell Centre event. Food is excellent. Drink menu is interesting and wine list is chosen with care. Friendly and attentive staff. Will return for sure (even if not attending a show at the Bell Centre!
Nous étions pressés puisque nous devions assister à un spectacle au centre bell. Nous avons découvert ce restaurant par hasard. Nos attentes ont été plus que comblées. La serveuse a été totalement compréhensive quant à notre court délais, et nous avons été servit rapidement et avec courtoisie. Nous y retournerons certainement pour déguster un bon repas, et nous prendrons le temps de déguster un des bons repas du menu. Nous recommandons fortement!
Always great food, great scenery, and the staff is absolutely exquisite. Always welcoming, very friendly, and it's just always a treat for us.
Great date night place! Great cocktails with awesome italian food with a twist! Can't wait to go back!
great pub-like vibe, without the loud music. Can actually carry on a conversation without yelling across the table yet can still sing along to the music when your friends aren't talking to you :-)
Mother daughter weekend away dinner. When entering,due to the ambience, we were ready to have an appetizer and a drink and leave but looked at the menu and chose to stay. INCREDIBLE FOOD!!!! Service was great. So glad we stayed.
Pas notre première fois dans ce restaurant à proximité des cinémas et de Ste-Catherine. Le service était confus cette fois... de tous les intervenants: erreurs, assiettes enlevées avant d'avoir terminé et un peu d'impatience malgré que le restaurant n'était pas plein.
La bouffe était bonne. Le tartare de boeuf moins bon qu'à l'habitude. Les pâtes: très bonne ainsi que le poulet frit.
La carte des vins a toujours besoin de plus de choix.
Went there for a lunch with a work colleague. Unfourtunately disappointed, overrated and over priced. Tartare de saumon very average and french fries less than average.
Excellent cocktails. The presentation and the flavour for the pork osso bucco was out of this world!
Delicious and dependable. Polished and friendly service while efficient at lunch time. Small menu but all great choices. Great atmosphere. The osso bucco is a favorite.
Good service. Attentive and helpful. Interesting menu choices. We were all delighted by our choices. Highly recommended.
Nice surprise! Great drinks and the food was great. I would definately recommend it
Super menu midi! Excellent service. C'est une belle trouvaille...merci à mon ami Fred de me l'avoir recommandé
Great comfortable dining. Terrific service and excellent food.
The Basalm is managed by the same team that also run the next door Dominion Square Tavern and it shows. The staff is super and so is the food. Clearly a go to place in Montreal. Don't miss this!
Tres Bon! Mais un petit moins sur le son de la musique qui était un peu trop forte!
Très bon accueil ambiance relax bon rapport qualité prix , j ajouterais une assiette de fromage au menu 😀Car le vin est bon !
Cool ambiance, great service and amazing food! Perfect for a 30th birthday celebration and a first trip to Montreal!
Nice ambiance, very good service, not so good meal, average value for money.Very loud. Depends on what you are looking for.
Très bien ...agréable moment
The wines, the food quality and service all wows, prices reasonable .
Nourriture excellente. Ambiance tranquille pour un samedi, quoi que très agréable mais le service était très ordinaire. La serveuse semblait trop nouvelle pour connaître son menu et les réponses aux questions étaient contradictoires.
Very good restaurant, excellent service, good food, will go back for sure !
Very nice decor and ambiance also ! Must see the restrooms downstairs !
Great food great service would def. go back and ref. to family & friends
Coup de coeur pour le gingerale maison et les arancinis qui étaient exquis!
Very slow service for weekday lunch time...food was just barely hot (had the day special that is supposed tonne quicker!...)
Excellent Service. Good food. Not my first time and not the last.
Service is impeccable but the food is mediocre and the music is too loud!
Balsam Inn is a definite repeat! Prompt, attentive and friendly service, excellent food and a warm and lively atmosphere... What more could you want? Cocktails at the bar were a perfect starter to a great evening. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Balsam Inn is such a great restaurant, good food, excellent service and the ambiance is cozy and elegant. I love it so much, I try to go as much as possible! Highly recommended!!!!
