over price an terrible food overall! big disappointment
Wonderful fresh seafood and raw bar. Awesome ambiance.
Knowledge staff, fresh seafood, A+
We had previously not kins on multiple occasions and enjoyed it immensely. It’s a rebranding does not seem to be as good. The service was disappointing and it seems one is no longer able to interact with the oyster Schuckers when one is sitting at the bar. The clam was barely warm. Our waitress didn’t know that much about oysters and most of the oysters had pieces of shell in them. Perhaps we hit them on an off day as previously this place was marvelous.
I am torn on this. I was in Montreal on business and had an evening to myself. I saw that Belon got good reviews for their food, and thought it would be good for the evening. I made a reservation on Open Table and arrived on time. I was told by the hostess that they no longer accepted reservations from Open Table and that they would not accept a reservation from one person in any case. She sat me at the bar, which I did not mind, but the service I received was exceptionally disinterested. My dinner took nearly 2-1/2 hours with lots of down time. I am used to that in Europe, but not normally in Canada. In any case, the seafood was excellent, especially the oysters, but the service was slow and the food, other than the seafood was not up to par in terms of temperature or flavor. If they wanted to make me understand that they feel that singletons (even those racking up $100+ checks, American $$) are not worth their time, the were successful.
The decor was very nice and seafood was fresh however the main dishes are okay. Nothing to be wow about. My seafood risotto was a bit too salty for my liking and the clam bake also good.
Pretty good. Decent oyster. Good service
One of the best plateau de fruits de mer I have had, including several restaurants I have been to in France.
Nous avons bien aimé notre première expérience à votre resto. Tout était frais et très bon. Cependant nous avons trouvé les vins beaucoup trop cher et l'entrée pour se rendre de la rue au resto inadéquat pour le style de resto. Sombre et pas joli du tout.
I have never had such bad service in my life. The drinks were not consumable and the waitress did not even care. My date had a whisky sour that was far too acidic and was hardly shaken. I asked the waitress what her favourite drink was (I think it had gin and prosseco in it) and I could not drink it. The prosecco was flat and it was too acidic. But she did not ask how they were even when we decided to leave without finishing the beverage. I had planned on ordering food but when I saw how little care went into making my drink, I decided against it
Food was ordinary and the menu was quite limited. I was attracted to the pictures on social media, but at the end it looked better than it tasted.
Great evening. Food was awesome.
The raw oysters were stellar, the mussels and fries were just ok. I had many mussels that didn’t open so I couldn’t eat a good number of them. Their beer menu is just sad, they don’t know about food and beer pairing at all
Amazing raw bar with a knowledgeable staff full of individualized recommendations. Apps and main courses delicious! Make sure you check out the restrooms!
We very much enjoyed the food and drink at Belon which had a nice variety of seafoods. Alix was a superb waitress, very knowledgeable and quite friendly, a pleasure to have had her for our server!
Terrible from beginning to end. Waitress is not trained to work in a classy restaurant. Has trouble uncorking the bottle of wine. Does not even know what « bouillabaisse « is!! Even though it is one out of about only eight main dishes on the menu. There were bits of shell in our oysters! This is a restaurant that prides itself on serving the best oysters. They don’t serve bread. They charge for it!!!! Salmon tartar was wayyy too salty, so return it. They made a new one that was supposed to be much less salty.... it was still too salty. And bland. The bouillabaisse was supposed to be a lobster bisque base..... no lobster taste whatsoever. It was more like a tomato base. And very bland! The mussels were tiny...and very plain broth. The busboys are too eager to remove your plates.... so you feel rushed!!!!
Wéll never go there again!
Went there several times when it was Notkins and always had a good experience. Let’s just say the changes are several in the negative sense, don’t plan on going back.
Excellente nourriture. Belle ambiance, service impeccable !
Dirty plates. Poor quality and taste. If you like seafood I would steer clear. We ordered the seafood platter for two. The whole thing is filled with boiled potatoes and corn to make it look full and then the seafood part consisted of about (no exaggeration here) 10 muscles, 5 clams, and exactly two scallops and one lobster. The broth was tasteless. We felt very ripped off and insulted by the poor quality and lack of effort. When writing this review it reminds me of those restaurants that are run by the waiters until the chef arrives. Our dish was comparable to a reheated portion. Same goes for the fries. They were stale and tough. Just awful.
Très bon, service impeccable mais le rapport qualité - prix... un peu excessif. Malgré la qualité de la nourriture, un souper pour 2 à 429$ txes et services (une bouteille de vin), on s'attend à une plus grande expérience. Ça ne vaut pas le prix à mon avis.
The starters and the meal was very expensive. The wine was very good! The ambiance, the welcome and the service were perfect.
It was really good ! Waitresses were really on point !
WOW.. I have seen the previous reviews for this restaurant and I was a little surprised at the harsher comments.. Yes.. there was a bit of a wait, however, the waitress did indicate that it would take time. We waited for about 30 minutes and should of ordered an appetizer. The raw platter experience was out of this world.. We often dine in this manner and I must say, the platter and presentation was incredible. Thank you for the amazing experience and the restaurant did not disappoint. A little pricey, perhaps, however, it is in line with the quality that I have seen in many other restaurants! Hats off to the crew at the Raw Bar on the evening of July 21st!!
Service was slow to start. Oysters and chef presentation was the best part of the evening. Clams and mussels with frites was dry and lacking sauce. We told the chef at the oyster bar and then the server. The server went to get more sauce that never came. We didn't eat the dish and after two complaints we were billed for the dish. I had to ask for it to be removed from the bill. Awkward.
I just went there for oysters 3 types for shucker choice of 12, they introduced well and u can choose ur favorite if u want a second round. Great value and fresh
Overall, pretty unremarkable. The food was so-so and pricy.
expensive and not as good as it was use to be. They charged us for a fish plate we never knew the price before (it is legal ?)
Our first time here, waitress took 15 minutes to tell us that it was only raw bar at 4:30pm. We asked her not to leave as we were going to decide on the raw bar menu, she left anyways. No water, no drinks, no service, never again!
Restaurant changed name in past year and have to assume ownership as it is nowhere as good as it used to be.
Excellent oysters, good choice of wines, informed and friendly service, fish main (tuna) very good, outdoor seating - will return.
Service is terrible and the food is way to expensive for what you get.
Amazing salmon tartare! Terrasse is very cute!
Trendy looking restaurant. Most seating was bar style with some tables outside. Ordered the First Mate seafood platter. Came with enough food. Excellent tuna sashimi and really tasty scallops. The lobster claws were a little over cooked. Food was good but overall at $160 for two people, we were a little underwhelmed. They do have more reasonably priced a la carte items.
Excellent service by Alix.
Food was excellent, specially the tuna, but portion a bit small.
Wish the oyster were more affordable, since it is kind if a trademark
Traveling to Montreal, always looking for great food. This restaurant was around the corner from out hotel, which was great in the case of the heat in the city. Food was outstanding, service was great. Had oysters rockefeller, was left licking the shells. Would go again any time.
I do believe the kitchen forgot about our meals and so it took an extraordinarily long time to get our entrees. That said, the masterful and very amiable oyster shucking team at the bar provided a huge amount of entertainment and helped to pass the time.
Mauvaise odeur en entrant et pris beaucoup trop temps pour nous servir. Tres dispendieux
Date night in Montreal at Belon on the patio with oysters ............ does it get better ?
I have no complaints from this restaurant, food, service was very good. Very fresh oysters and clams, delicious.
Ambiance setting is modern and artistic.
Waiter was accommodating.
Cheesecake is more of a whipped cream dessert.
Food took way too long to be prepared.
