La bouffe est délicieuse, simple mais très bien apprêter, avec attention aux détails de la part de l’équipe de service!

À y retourner!

The restaurant is along a pedestrian plaza (walkway) making for an attractive venue. They also offer outdoor seating. We sat inside but the wall & doors open right up so it felt more like sitting in a cafe. Service was very good. The menu focused on fewer selections but there was still plenty of variety and all we had were excellent. We liked the restaurant so much we went back two nights in a row. This restaurant does not sell wine (or alcohol of any type), rather one brings a bottle of wine ("apportez votre vin"). A great feature of bringing your own wine is you can indulge more on a superb bottle of wine to sip while enjoying the restaurant's excellent food. We had the steak and Cornish hen, salmon appetizer and a delicious "mi-cuit au chocolat" adorned with a small dollop of vanilla ice cream. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Reliably good neighbourhood bistro, arguably comparable to its far more expensive rivals (I’m looking at you, l’Express). Lovely classic food & relaxed, friendly service.
My only sorrow was that the tuna tataki was off the menu the night we were there...

Fairly good but not wow. A bit expensive though.
I was only attracted by the salmon because the rest was too expensive.
Mostly French dishes, well presented. Good place for dates. They have a terrace.

Food was very good, atmosphere perfect! As a party of two couples, we brought two bottles of wine and enjoyed eating outside on a quaint and beautiful street closed off to car traffic. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this lovely dining experience during your vacation in Montreal!

BYOB place with SAQ across the (pedestrian only) street, and excellent food. If you are lucky, there will be performance art outside on the street to watch from your table near the window, or outside! Food is comparable to very expensive restaurants with overpriced wine lists, yet much better value, and you save immensely on the wine as well. A great find.

As usual the food is great and the atmosphere is relaxed. The etages de tomates was excellent to start. The bavette a l’echalote is an easy choice for the main course. Don’t forget to bring a nice bottle of bordeaux to round things out.

The restaurant was better than I had expected. As someone that goes out a lot, I tend to be doubtful about BYOY places, especially in that area of town, but it was a great experience. The food was delicious, the service friendly, attentive, but very relaxed and I liked the laid back atmosphere. Granted, it was Tuesday night and very quiet. I'd be happy to come back!

Nice little spot and classic french bistro style. If you're looking for a quick option and want good quality food that will not hurt your budget, this is the place. Great service, great food at a fair price is always a place I wanna go back.

Restaurant apportez votre vin, prix raisonnable mais bouffe vraiment ordinaire.
40$ le menu table d'hôtes, c'est parfait, mais il ne faut pas s'attendre à de la grande gastronomie.

Really small portions...in turn the prices are unreasonable...a rip off.
Hanger steak was barely 4oz...might have been under 100 grams.
The gravalax was so small it looked comical on the plate.
Many different places selling 15x the amount of salmon for same price. .... making the price per pound over $600.
I have eaten here couple times... last time in the spring 2017....every other time was good.....this time angered me ...upsetting...won't return.

We arrived without a booking to find a full restaurant with only one wait staff working. He informed me we could be seated but he may be a while before serving us. We were quite happy considering he'd warned us of the possible delay. The owner of the adjoining restaurant came to assist him and I'm so glad we gave it a chance.
The food was outstanding, I ordered the escargot and appertizer of carpaccio, the risotto my husband ordered was not as tasty but the seafood on top was cooked well. Overall, I would definitely recommend Le Square, and would also go again

We hit upon this place as a halfway point between two couples and were pleasantly surprised. Though small, the space is nice, the food quite good and the service friendly. Most of us opted for the table d'hote. The onglet de boeuf was tender and perfectly cooked. The salmon was a hit as well. However, the fourth person, a vegetarian, had a very limited choice. If in the area, we would definitely go back.

Kind of a last minute booking on a Saturday night. Service wasn't great but wasn't bad. Food was good but not great. I enjoyed my foie gras and prosciutto linguine, as well as my smoked duck Margret tartare. The two people I was with weren't impressed with the quality of their steaks though. It's BYOB which is nice. Ultimately, there's nothing wrong with this restaurant, but there's nothing great about it that would bring me back either.

This place was very nice the food was lovely, but the noise levels where off the chart! Two big groups ont the day we went made it more like an afternoon at la cage au sport! I think I would return but on maybe a night when smaller groups are in and it is more quiet. The restaurant. Staff and food where very nice and I would recommend.

My friend and I both got the wild mushrooms with pasta noodles. It was yummy and the olive oil was very flavorful. I wanted more salt, but my friend liked it just as it was. The fries were super great. My kids got the onion soup and liked it. I will definitely recommend it and probably go back myself. The atmosphere was super adorable European feeling. Nice place, good food, inexpensive for the quality.

Cozy place, typical Prince Arthur bistro - decent food, tables close together, fun. BYOB - they do not serve their own wine and be warned, the quasi-depanneur across the street has 200 kinds of beer but a small selection of wine, none of it good - best to bring one from home. Tables are close together, especially outside. We had the prix fixe, gazpacho, bavette, cheese, all good. Service was friendly and attentive but not hovering.
