    The service was good. The air conditioning was so high that most of us had to wear a sweater. The food had no taste and we felt it was overpriced for the quality. At 7:30 on a Saturday night they had 3 choices of their main menu that were not available and the restaurant was only at about 1/3 full.

    I had an amazing birthday dinner at Bar et Boeuf. We were a large group and they gave us a nice semi private spot on the second floor and the waitress was amazing. The food was good but a little bit on the small side. I wish my plate was bigger. Overall, I really liked my experience and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice trendy place.

    l'entrée Fois gras poêle est goûteux, une très bonne mise en bouche pour la suite. Le poisson "Dorée du lac" était divin, cuisson parfaite, par contre accompagnement couscous était trop salé, dommage. La pièce de boeuf (cuisson saignante) était PARFAITE. Le dessert Gâteau des anges (déclinaison avec les fraises, un pure régal).

    The good was great however the service could have been better. From someone who works for a client based company, I didn't find the experience to be very personable or friendly. From the time I was greated till the time I was said 'goodbye' I don't recall seeing any of the staff smile.

    The food tasted good .. But they messed up a steak and had no idea who's steak they were giving to who .. Took the messed up ones back and left her with no food for another 30 minutes when we all had ours . Didn't even comp her any drinks or anything for the royal mistake. Didn't offer us to taste the wine before pouring .. Honestly just the worst service I've ever seen ... It was okay for a night but I won't ever be going back again

    Not too impressed with the food, service and especially not the ambiance. For the price-point, honestly not worth it. We have such an amazing resto selection in Montreal that Bar&Boeuf is not really worth it, in my opinion.

    My girlfriend and I were very satisfied with both the food and the service. The look of the restaurant is great. The rabbit was fantastic, as well as the steak. And the Profiteroles were outstanding as a dessert. We are not drinkers so we can't say anything about the wine card, to which we didn't give a look to be honest, but I'm certain that a restaurant of this quality would offer a good selection. Recommended.

    We had such an experience at Bar & Boeuf by December 31st !! A wonderfull 4 courses dinner , very fine cuisine , very tasty but the portion were far too small compare to the price They requested no choice that we pay 160 $ ( without drink or wine during the dinner ) all services included This is true that this amount included the open bar from 23h to 3 hours on morning They rush the service to the table without any reason as they requested us to leave our table to set up the party only at 11pm Globaly a good experience but only due to the very nice food and the very good DJ

    The slow service can only be described as a snail's pace, which prolonged a simple meal and resulted in food that was either served overcooked or too cold. Given so many other restaurants in the area is best to just avoid this restaurant.

    As we walked in, we loved the way the restaurant looked. We were seated right away, and asked if we wanted drinks. The appetizers must have come no more than 5-10 minutes after we ordered, which was quite impressive. The main meal came quickly after the appetizers as well, but not too quickly, just the right amount of time. The food itself was very good! For "French Cuisine", the plates for the main meals were very big! I did not expect that. We ordered the duck confit with bacon, sausage and beans, and we also ordered the salmon tartar, which was very good as well. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant, and will definitely being going back. The Staff is also very friendly and gave great service.

    We were celebrating my wife 30th birthday with a group of 17 and we were serve by one girl not professional at all. She was not polite, water and wine splashed on the table when she filled our glass, she wasn't able to recommend us wine (1st we chose was an agro-bio one who smell really bad, she replaced it with an other one who wasn't good (and 57$)!) and the service was very long (2hours for 1st service), but she told us it was normal for a group! She even did'nt ask my wife if she want a desert (or me to give her a birthday cake!)

    As much as I was excited to try a new restaurant, I was not impressed with the service. I had reservations at 7pm, I did a courtesy call to notify of 5 mins delay and the person on the line made it seem like the restaurant was overly packed and we needed to get there right away and that numerous people were waiting for their seats. We ended up being 3 mins late and we got menus as soon as we sat down, however took 30 mins to get drinks. Restaurant wasn't packed, didn't understand the delay of service. Took another 45 mins to get my bill. Food was ok, not over the top but fair. Needed a bit more flavor in my opinion. Coat check is a good added service. Ambiance was nice, great for a romantic dinner and special occasion.

    I took my boyfriend here on our first night in Montreal as part of our romantic getaway and it was amazing! The restaurant itself is gorgeous and romantic, with high ceilings, romantic lighting and super comfy chairs. The servers were well dressed and polite and charming. The place was busy and a little loud, but that went unoticed after a while. I had the lychee martini and it was beyond amazing and my boyfriend Chris loved that they had his favorite Quebec beer available. The bread was delicious, as was my appetizer, the squash soup. I had the salmon and Chris had the rabbit. At first I thought it looked small, but it was very filling and Chris was pleased with his rabbit. Take your time and expect to be there a while, it was worth it.

    Very disappointing , went there with a group , some from Toronto and others from USA, food ordinary, worst was the service that was handled like if we were at the tavern, the waitress was conceded with no refinement and no customer service knowledge , wine list very limited and if this was not enough, wine from a bottle opened for 5 days and obviously not good was offered to us. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone
