Though we had to wait 1/2Though we had to wait 1/2 hr at the front of the restaurant for our table (despite having made a reservation), and though the young girls playing hostess ignored us completely after the initial greeting - we were eventually addressed by the more professional maître d' who offered us a glass of delicious white port to thank us for our patience. Once we were seated, we waited yet another 10 min. before our waitress offered us some water and drinks. After that, the dinner was flawless and the owner himself was extremely gracious. We love going to Ferreira because the food and wine is so excellent. The service is a bit hit and miss unless you get one of the more experienced waiters - in which case it's excellent - still always worth going12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI go there many times becauseI go there many times because everything it top notch!11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEverybody was happy with theirEverybody was happy with their choise
Our table was comfortable but we were far back near the kitchen and staff area hidden by a black curtain,that why I give 3 stars for ambience.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily dinnerTook our daughters with their better halves and we all enjoyed it immensely....best seafood in the whole city!!!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great choice!Ferreira is always a great choice for professional foodies.

This year it seemed to be much less Portuguese than we remember. Perhaps it was our choices, but we came away saying that it could have been any generic high quality Mediterranean restaurant. The black bass was perfect, but had nothing in the preparation that made us think of Portugal.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding CafeFerreira Cafe is an outstanding experience.

It's on the pricey side, but let me tell you that it is the spot you want to go if you need an ego boost!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticOne of my favorite downtown Montreal restaurants. Our waiter was superb, and was able to recommend a wine that suited our taste perfectly. We only had one night in Montreal, and this was my first choice for a special dinner, and my wife and I were not disappointed. A great range of seafood, expertly prepared. The high quality of service, and the comfortably vibrant atmosphere make the dining experience superb.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to enjoy an eveningThe food was great, lots of choices and the service was also excellent. There were 6 of us and we the treatment received was superb.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent fishExcellent food, best fish in Montreal. Impressive, private importations of Portuguese wine. Great ambiance, although the music was loud during our stay.
Service is good. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly. However, the bus staff were not. They were always too quick to remove plates as if in a race. At one point, my wife had her plate taken away while I was still eating - and she had not finished yet! Waitstaff enjoyed talking among themselves during slow periods not far from us - rather unpleasant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant eveningGroup of 5 spent a pleasant evening at Ferreira Cafe. Reservations had been made on line very simply, and the cafe easily handled a necessary last minute change in the date. Service was attentive; food, especially the fish, was very good. The only real negative was the noise level; even as a group of only 5 it was basically impossible to carry on a conversation across the table.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated in the wayWe were seated in the way back part of the restaurant.....reserved a long time in advance.
