We went on a Saturday night. We originally had reservations for 7 but went in there around 630 and they could seat us. The duck confit was delicious! Highly recommend it! The staff was very attentive and the food came out relatively quickly. Moderately priced but great food!

We stopped in that afternoon (Saturday) and were able to get a reservation for a high top for 4 in the bar which served us just fine. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgable, offering tastes of wines we were unfamiliar with prior to ordering. While the table space was tight - we managed. THe food was great and the portions were ample. It’s noisy and a few of the tables nearby had Pepe whose voices carried but it was a Saturday night in December so the place was full and there were a few holiday parties. THe steaks were cooked to perfection and the lobster ravioli was rich but light. Clearly a popular spot.

I was recommended to the Homer by colleagues and the Hotel. I went there with an associate. The place was large, bright, French bistro style, and friendly service. We liked the food, Duck Confit was very good. I have had better, and worse. Overall a good reliable dining experience.

Well another flop in Montreal. Drove 7 hours to this disappointing experience. It is basically a family restaurant.
The duck confit was so poorly plated, obviously food presentation is not an issue.
The duck was baked, on placed on a bed of arugula with three potatoes slices underneath. There is a thousand different ways to present this food. The fish and chips so basic and once again no presentation involved. A city of food and this was quite frankly a BORE.

My wife and I spent a long weekend in Old Montreal. We looking for a place we hadn't been to before and decided to give Holder a try. At first glance, it's a good sized restaurant, so we didn't know what to expect. We had a concert to go to and were worried the service may be slow. It was not. The service was great. We had Fried Calamari and Buffalo Mozzarella for appetizers and enjoyed them both. I had the Braised Beef Bourguignon, which was very tender and so tasteful. My wife had Grilled Tilapia w/shrimp, mussels and chorizo, which was a very nice combination that she loved. There were some larger parties and looked like a perfect place for a group of friends. But it was also a nice environment for just the two of us. We'll definitely go again when we're back in Montreal.
