    We enjoyed our time at the Firegrill on Saturday night. The food was quite good, and so were the drinks. It was extremely busy with what appeared to be bachelor parties, which I had not anticipated. That meant it was extremely loud, crowded and slower service. The waiter did a great job considering the large groups he was waiting on (we were only 4 people), but we still found we were unattended a few times. Luckily he was quite friendly and fun :)

    Took 25mins for someone to even come to our table and acknowledge our existence. We were given cold stale buns that probably came from another table. There were 3 of is at the table... But only cutlery for 2 and wine glasses for 2. We had to ask for cutlery after we had received out food. For such a fancy reatuarant you'd think they'd give you good service. Was not impressed at all with the service.!

    We ate at Firegrill at 5:00 p.m., so we were ahead of any dinner crowd that might materialize later in the evening. At that hour, we were one of only three tables, so it was nice and quiet and the staff was attentive. Food was very good; waitstaff was very polite.

    My girlfriend and I had dinner on Saturday, July 3rd. We were seated in the bar area by a window which was fine as we could see what was going on outside while we ate. Our server was okay but a couple of things she did were not up to the standards that I would have expected from Firegrill. When she took our order she did not write anything down and had to ask a couple of times for us to tell her again what we wanted or how we wanted something cooked. This did not inspire a high degree of confidence that we were going to get what we ordered the way we ordered it. I also had to ask her for bread. When our food came out my girlfriends was perfect but mine was overcooked. I ordered my steak medium rare and it was medium well.

    I had tried the one in Ville St-Laurent when it opened and it was pretty good. In this case the steak tasted watery in the middle and didn't have enough seasoning and at the price they ask it should have been better. I could have made a better steak at home. The sauteed mushrooms and fries were good though. I'd rather pay more at The Keg and be far more satisfied with my meal. I could have sent it back but I really hate to waste food.

    Service was fast, plus it was Grand Prix weekend! Food was amazing! Great spot to have dinner with that special someone. Prices where a bit pricey but considering it was down town I guess it's expected. I'm not sure if it was special Grand Prix pricing.

    Dined on 4/5/2014
    The food was pretty good. For the price, I would have expected a slightly higher quality in the steak cut I ordered. I ended up with a New York steak with portebello sauce. It was good, and cooked medium-rare, just as I had ordered, but the meat piece was a bit stiff. I would have expected a nicer cut. All in all, 100$ for two, with wine, drinks and desserts. Pretty good price for what we ended up having. The overall dining experience was good. Service was fantastic, and the ambiance is perfect for a couple wanting to have some time away. They have a nice outdoor patio, but the weather was a bit cold for us to try it that night. This is a good restaurant, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for decent food downtown Montreal.

    My wife, (19mo daughter) & I stopped here on our first ever trip to Montreal from Upstate New York. And I can say that we couldn't have been more satisfied. We each had a cocktail along with Calimari for an appetizer. The Calimari was fresh and light tasting and not overbreaded like most places. Our waitress was great and very attentive. She quickly brought our drinks and some warm bread which was delicious. I ordered the 18oz Prime Rib and my wife got the New York Goat Cheese & Portobello Steak. I also added the Grilled Jumbo Scallops. We ordered our daughter the chicken strips & fries from the kids menu. It was great that the waitress knew enough to bring my daughter's food out with our salads so she wouldn't have to wait.

    Overall we had a good experience. We had had lunch there in the past and all was excellent. This time was in the evening and the only drawbacks were that the baked potato was hard in the center and the prime rib was not tender although the flavor was first rate. The key lime pie was excellent. The salad with grilled shrimp was superb as was the service. The house red wine was outstanding

    We went for lunch and were very disapointed. My husband ordered the ribs and the portion was really small. Moreover, it is served with only one side. He chose the cold slaw. So for 30$ he got a small rack of ribs and a minuscule portion of slaw. We will never go back there.

    Supper. mom and another friend (senior). Staff courteous and helpful. I had seafood (scallops and shrimp, recommended), mom enjoyed her pasta, friend enjoyed his salmon. Portions very decent. Not cheap and not outrageous (I'm a big bring your own wine person so I'm kinda cheap usually, I found the prices high for me but definitely typical of a nice place like this). Great looking dining room. Mom found it kind of dark but she lives with florescent lights all over her house so hey, maybe she is just nuts?
