RESERVATIONS ARE FOR MEALS ONLY. Please advise us if you are running late otherwise your reservation will be cancelled after 20 minutes.

Featuring a plethora of interesting 1920s-inspired design details, the Dominion Square Tavern is a cut above your average downtown eatery. Enjoy simple classic fare or british dishes such as mussels and fries, Cornish hen, scotch egg or bangers and mash in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Top it off with a sinful serving of sticky toffee pudding. A full bar, cocktails, wine and beers await.

The Cornish hen for two was amazing. Love the Gin and tonic Maison — thé homemade tonic is wonderful. Nice ambiance.

Food was good. It was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think, much less have a conversation. Kudos to the wait staff for being able to provide excellent service under extreme conditions.

My wife and I returned here after four years to celebrate our wedding anniversary (we’re from the States, but were married in MTL). Boy, this place never disappoints. The drinks are top notch for a reasonable price, the food is stellar, and the service always out of this world. It’s one of our favorite places to dine when we visit MTL, and we don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

Always a fan of DST but last Thursday night I found it hard to even carry on a conversation with the people sitting right next to me...noise level was insanely high. Some ability to acoustically account for VERY busy nights would make a lot of sense.

I know it’s supposed to be like an old Taverne experience, but if the noise is so high you can’t even carry on a conversation then the reason for meeting friends is irrelevant...may as well go some place quieter where we can actually talk to each other without screaming.

Recommended by colleague at work to try the mussels. It was good but lacking in a few areas:

1) mussels were all on the smaller side and a couple were not cleaned properly,

2) wine and garlic flavour was a bit light side, and

3) some mussels didn’t open.

The braised beef shoulder was amazing (to die for) it’s so silky and smooth. The flavour was robust and, together, with the mashed potatoes was heavenly!

Daughter was looking for mussels and this was close to our hotel. She loved them but my meal was average. Nothing special but decent and the servers we nice but not overly friendly. May be the language barrier. I’m sure if I spoke French it would have been a more friendly experience.

Nous étions sur la terrasse donc agréable pour se parler car pas trop bruyant. Terrasse à l’ambiance européenne, ce qui est rare au centre-ville. Personnel No. 1. Très bon repas du jour : le canard était très bon et en portion suffisamment généreuse.

Oui - mais the food was absolutely delicious and great, however the tables to narrow to one to another, it was a draft through the room, therefore one had to wear the coat and we had waiters in other restaurants that were more attentive

Beautiful ambiance, outstanding food and excellent service in this landmark downtown Montreal restaurant. The only minus point was the loud music, it was difficult to have a conversation.
