    Nous étions quatre et nous avons beaucoup apprécié à la fois le service et la nourriture, un mélange assez hétéroclite de toutes sortes de choses habituelles pour un brunch, mais avec une touche personnalisée unique. Celle des grandes tables ou des grandes cuisines: assiette de charcuterie maison; les gaufres avec un nutella maison divin, etc.

    Prix-fixe menus can be hit or miss so I am hoping this was the case and not what the restaurant offers normally. The grilled bread with bone marrow was definitely the best thing we had all evening, pretty big portions for an appetizer as well. The paella risotto ended up being one note flavor-wise. The main courses continued this downward trend. The trout was very ordinary. The braised beef was just bad. It was very gamy and overwhelmed everything on the plate. Dessert was okay but again, nothing special The waiters/waitresses/hostess were all very friendly but never really came to check up on us. We just wished that our meal tasted half as good as the restaurant looked.

    Our service was slow in spite of an early dinner without a crowd. The food was decent but not spectacular, especially considering the cost. It could probably be described as a typical hotel restaurant where the convenience of eating at your hotel is important.

    This was a late find as the other places we wanted to go to were closed or full. It turned out to be a great evening. Food was well prepared and cuts of meat were done to perfection. The wait staff was outstanding and a pleasure to interact with. The view is impressive with very tall floor to ceiling glass that must be 20 feet high. On a sunny day it must be a great place to enjoy a meal. Table d'hote (3 services) ran at about 60$/person. Good selection of mainly french wines. My wife ordered a glass of sparkling wine and it was flat when it was poured in her glass. The waiter immediatey returned the bottle and came back with a brand new bottle to serve the glass. A delicate situation that was superbly attended to. Close to downtown.

    I really and very appreciate this restaurant for the quality of food and service. Concerning the welcoming, the woman who's responsible was unpleasant with her remark in relation with our reservation and the fact that we arrive few minutes later. Particularly, because at the hour that we arrived, only 3 tables were occupied.

    I have had lunch at Le Renoir twice and been impressed both times. Elegant space, great sunlight and a comprehensive menu with a great lunch table d'hôte. I had sweetbreads, which were succulent and outstanding. The restaurant was not busy, I cannot understand why. The Sofitel is an elegant place and Le Renoir is a perfect complement to its offering. Anyone who stays at the hotel should not feel bad about not wanting to venture outside for lunch or dinner, this is one of the most under-rated places to eat in downtown Montreal.

    My wife and I went to Renoir for our anniversary, we were greated with champagne and smiles! The food was excellent and our waitress Justine was simply amazing! We had trout tartar and scallops as appetizers, my wife had fish and I had duck, very well executed dishes. The desserts were very good as well. I will definitely go back to try every thing else on the menu!

    I brought my wife there for her birthday, since we both love to try out new restaurants. This one is a keeper! The service was excellent, the food was very good and the wine that was suggested by our waitress fitted perfectly with what we ordered. I ordered the Blue fin tuna with homemade foie gras which was very refreshing. The balance between the butteryness of the foie gras and the lightness of the tuna was perfect. My main was the 16 oz. of grilled “black Angus” Alberta rib steak which was cooked to perfection. The sear on the steak was probably on of the best I ever tasted and the seasoning was on point. Very good! As for my dessert, the name is not on the online menu (made with a little Quebec's fruit)... Tasty!

    Meeting two friends for lunch after not seeing each other for a long time, it's good not to have to spend time pouring over a long menu. All the options looked good and the server offered a couple more good specials. The service was outstanding: prompt, professional and yet friendly. We all enjoyed our meals and it was very difficult to turn down the beautiful dessert options in favour of a simple coffee! I would certainly return.

    Made a reservation because we were going to be a large group(9), so when we showed up it seemed they either forgot or gave our table away because the lady at the reception tried very hard to get us to seat us in their bar/lounge for brunch?? She ran around for 10 minutes.. later our waitress told us that they had reserved our table for a party of 16, who had decided not to show-lucky for us hopefully this is not a regular occurance for OPEN TABLE reservations. Otherwise the brunch was excellent.. Actually, I was looking on their website I just noticed the that all a la carte breakfast items include BASKET of PASTRIES (I recalled seeing them walking around- BUT never came by our table) I thought we had good service till just now.. oh well.

    A delightful fine-dining experience. Despite the fact that the main that we ordered was not to our taste, our server immediately offered to replace it with the dish that we had contemplated when initially placing our order. It arrived within ten minutes and was as excellent as had been our appetizer. We also thoroughly enjoyed the wine that he had suggested. The maître d' also expressed his sincere regret that we had been inconvenienced and his respect for our opinion of the returned order.

    Four of us (two couples celebrating wedding anniversaries) had a very enjoyable meal on a Saturday evening. The service was excellent and very friendly (without being intrusive). The food, from starters to dessert, was very good. It's a hotel restaurant so the ambience is perhaps not as romantic as in a small, cozy restaurant but, on the plus side, they can generally take last-minute reservations (as was the case with us).

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal from cocktails to dessert. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable yet, unobtrusive. Special thanks to our waitress, Caroline for taking our photo. If you are looking for a place to sit down and spend some time enjoying your meal over great conversation...this is your place! The name of the sous chef is escaping me right now but, I would like to mention that he visited several tables, including ours, to ask how our meal was. He was very friendly and even gave us to some insight into some pro-hockey players that frequent the establishment. As a big hockey fan I found him to be very entertaining with his information and even chatted about the Olympics.

    The oysters, even though they said was from long island, was very fishy, and the waiter indicated they get it fresh from the dock? That must be a very long dock stretching from montreal to long island. The wife's risotto, I've had way much better for a fraction of the price. The other food was not so good. The portion sizes were typical french sizing which I like (diet size I call it).
