Ate here as part of a group. Everyone was happy with their meals. I had the cod with steamed rice that was nicely done and tasty. Side of asparagus also good. Service was efficient and friendly. Would definitely eat here again. Note that although it is a steakhouse it would be good if they offered something vegetarian on the menu.

I had dinner here with a friend. The service was average at best and my meal (lamb shank) was bland. My fiend's filet was not cooked as requested, and had to be sent back.

The most amazing food and attentive staff I've ever experienced. The lamb shank was so tender; ny york steak cooked to perfection as to each person's request; all appetizers and sides superb. Highly recommended. $$$$

Came here with a group of 7. The manager sat us in our own private little corner for some privacy. The food is top notch and our server just great. Nobody in our group had any sushi but we did all have a variety of their steaks and prime rib. The cuts of beef were well aged and seasoned. Will... More

I went there with my work colleagues for lunch. We order the chef special ($18) that included a nice grilled Sirloin with fries and one of the best sauce I have ever tasted. Meat was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended. The restaurant is a little outdated though. Needs to be renovated.

My hubby and I are very impressed! We came in from out of town and just needed a nice place for dinner. As soon as we entered we could tell the restaurant was busy with a Christmas party but the staff were very welcoming anyway! Our server Terry came promptly to offer drinks, which she brought back to us right... More

Went there for lunch with colleagues and ordered the burger. When we were served my burger was under cooked (rare), so I showed the waiter that the burger was so under cooked that part of the bun was red being soaked in blood. He took it back to the kitchen without any form of apology and brought me back an... More

Horrible meal. Salmon - burnt. Grilled vegitables - burnt. Prime rib - served in a "soup" that overflowed the meat. Sliders were just plain nasty. Calamari over-breaded. Scampi overdone. The waitstaff seemed to want us gone as soon as we came in. Might as well go to the Franchised Keg or Moxies, both in sight of this underwhelming restaurant and... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
