    It has been years I’ve not been to Vargas and it was for a business lunch. At first Bertha was there for as, been after 30 minutes the service went terrible. We had ask sparkling water once and after the empty bottle no more service. The tartare of my boss was terrible, my surlonge was supposed medium well but after it was very red inside. The fries was very salty and we waiting a long time for the check. For me it will be a list for a business lunch

    Ordered a Dry aged steak at vargas last night, was absolutely terrible. I have been there twice as I’m not from Montreal. The first time was a 8.5/10 great food. This time it was so bad and over priced. Manager was disrespectful and pretty much told us that the food was fine. But the waiter was very good. Overall experience 5.5/10. Probably won’t ever eat there again.

    Worst steak I’ve had in 20 years. They served me a very tough, overcooked, poor cut $75 steak, and then replaced it with a pan fried sized steak, overcooked that was worse than any steak I had cooked at home in my lifetime. Waiter and manager didn’t really care. Worst experience in steak restaurant or Montreal restaurant ever. If I could give negative stars, I would. Please avoid.

    Very good food - Lamb shank excellent Service was adequate - no bad but forgettable. Steak was no where near cooked to requested temperature but was big enough the under cooked portion was left behind. No one asked how it was. Room is beautiful

    Dinner for 2. We actually split everything which is rare for us. Oysters were well presented and delicious. The VIP appetizer platter for 2 was underwhelming. The most abundant item was the grilled vegetables and while they were delicious a couple more satays would have been nice. We split a tomahawk steak. While the inside was cooked perfectly mid rare and there were bites of perfection the hard sear was beyond sear, just burnt and bitter. We ordered a decent wine and shockingly, and no fault of the restaurant, the second bottle was off! The waiter agreed immediately and a new bottle was brought over with no trouble at all. It’s rare to find an off bottle but it happens and they handled it properly. Our waiter, Pascal, was friendly and personable and made our evening a stand out! He also knows so much about the goings on here. His knowledge saved us from having an issue later in our stay which never would have happened had he not been so friendly. Overall I think with better ordering the food would have been great. Would definitely try it again.

    I was taken back by the lack of any attempt at a dress code. T-shirts/jeans/ ball caps.. while I walk in with a nice dress and my husband in a sport coat. The images online and pricing of the menu suggested this would be much nicer than we experienced The service was mediocre at best with our server disappearing for extended periods of time… to the point that I never got another glass of wine…AKA higher bill and tip… because by the time she asked we had been done with our meal for at least 10 min. That said, the meal was very good. Sadly, because of the service and the overall vibe of “anything goes” we will not return.

    We were looking forward to our meal at Vargas, but it quickly changed once we realized we were in for an interesting dinner. After our appetizer of fried calamari showed in a bowl that had a big chip in the porcelain, we knew issues were to come. Overcooked and very rubbery calamaris, my 14oz steak was ordered medium-rare, showed up blue. I returned the supposedly aged-steak as I am not a fan of blue steaks. It then showed up 5 minutes later, charred and very bitter. Baked potato was not good as it was overcooked and barely stuffed with any garnish for a "fully loaded" baked potato. My sauteed mushrooms were barely cooked with big chunks of uncooked garlic in them. My wife's burger was food and her fries were good. For a 151$ meal, we were extremely disappointed. I do not recommend, and we will not go back. It felt like a tourist trap, a poorly managed and poorly runned tourist trap.

    I went there with my son who will be attending University next year. We ordered two French onion soup, a bone marrow appetizer and a Tomahawk chop steak for two. We had Creme brûlée and a chocolate cake and double espresso for dessert. I also had a few cocktails and a glass of red wine. It was not a small bill but I don’t mind at all paying for quality. First off, we weren’t offered bread. Not a problem for me as I’m laying off the carbs but we should have been offered bread. Next our two soup came out with our bone marrow app so the table was jammed. I would have spaced out the appetizers but I now know to ask. The soup was cold. I think because we didn’t seem to be a priority. A lot of different people delivered our food. We hardly saw our waitress. My son waited a while for anyone to refill his water. That’s ok if they were busy. They were not. They were only half full. I don’t know if my waitress could handle her tables or she was having a bad night but everything was slow and cold. I know the kitchen made the food hot so it must have been sitting a while. I tipped 20% on a $325 bill because I used to work in the industry and I know how hard the kitchen and bus staff work. I hope the waitress passes on some of that tip because she deserved very little.

    We had a party of 7 with 3 kids between 8 and 12 yes old, we were a little late for our reservation but no issues we had a nice table the staff were attentive and handled the kids in a very professional manner which was much appreciated. The food was delicious, sea bass, lamb, steak, sushi, seafood etc... was enjoyed by everyone. Highly recommend this restaurant as a go to in montreal for any occasion

    We had an outstanding meal at Vargas with excellent service from beginning to end. We started with cocktails (generous pours!) and the best octopus we've ever had - and we've had it many times both in the States and in Europe. It was flavorful and cooked perfectly with a delicious crunchiness on the tail. My husband loved his petite filet and the variety of roasted veggies he ordered with it, while I loved the lamb chops - something else I order frequently. They were a little rare right against the bone but perfectly medium in the medallion and seasoned perfectly. Our daughter was able to enjoy the sushi and sashimi she prefers, so we were all happy. We would definitely come back to Vargas next time we're in Montreal; living in California makes a spur-of-the-moment visit out of the question - too bad for us!
