Macaroni Bar reviews from OpenTable diners
  • AWFUL!!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/16/2013
    If I could sum it up in 1 word, I would say; AWFUL!! But really, that cannot even begin to describe the experience we had at Macaroni Bar. My husband and I regularly try new restaurants, and we were on a winning streak. Unfortunately, that all came to a screeching halt at this place. The drinks tasted watered down, the food was horrendous (don't go near the gnocchi poutine) and WAY over priced for the portion size. I will never go back and have made it my point to deter anyone else from going there as well. Save your money and go somewhere else!!

    Servers need more training. C for effort but a D- for execution. Disappointed over all. We ordered a bunch of appetizers then never had the opportunity to order the main meal. It took close to an hour to get the staggered delivery of 8 appetizers for a group of 6. Had to ask 3 times to finally get our bottles if wine to the table. Amazing this place survives into its 4th year. The apps were ok but some were RIDICULOUSLY small.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/13/2012
    Food was good. Had the arugula and pear salad, it was awesome. Then chose the vote de boeuf for my main. Steak was cooked to my pleasure but had too much of a charcoal taste causing it to taste bitter. My friend had the poutine which was sooo good then had the lamb for dinner which was a little bland. Our Waiter Shai was great. He answered all our questions, recommended things to us, kept us entertained, and was a great server. This place is really nice inside then turns to a lounge later at night. Music was great and service was excellent.. Would definitely come back... A bit pricey..

    Food portions quite small. Dimly lit. Host accommodated us when we asked for another table. My salmon was rare in the middle, brought this to the waitress' attention and she immediately brought it back to the kitchen for them to cook some more. Five stars for the super attentive service from busboy and waitress.

    Decided to try that place because of I heard that their terrace was nice, despite several warnings from friends that it was one of the worst places in the city. I should have listened to them. First, I had a reservation on the terrace that was confirmed twice the day before (seems they have some communication issues between the 2 hostesses). When we arrived, the terrace was closed because they had an event at a later time. They put us in a corner and told us that they needed the table for 9 p.m (it was already 7h30). It was funny how the hostesses (model wannabes that never got their break) had attitude. We should have left at this point but decided to eat anyway. It was another mistake from my part since it was the worst “ Italian foo

    Quality dining experience with a vibrant patio bar scene after we were finished. Only issue I had was that they tried to make us order bottle service to sit outside after we'd just dropped $125/couple on dinner...in the end, they let up and we just ordered a few cocktails. Very good experience all around.

    Sat outside, very nice terrace. We were 4 people. Apparently chef didn't like the way one main course came out, so it was redone. Consequently, it was served after other 3 main courss were eaten. Staff was very apologetic, and offered us coffe, dessert and aperitifs on the house. When bill came, the delayed main course was also comp'ed. Appropriate response. We will definitely return.

    This is the first time at Macaroni Bar and I'm amazed of their food. I heard of their famous gnocchi poutine which attracted me to go there at the first place. I can tell you that I really enjoy the soft and subtle texture of gnocchi served with the sweet veal gravy and St-Guillaume cheese. I wish that it wasn't served only as an appetizer, I would have gone for more. I had the "orecchiette con salsiccia e rapini", I'm amazed of the spiciness and herby flavor of the sauce and love the texture of the sausages. My friend had the pizza with 24-hour thinly sliced marinated meat, I wish I knew what was the meat. Great service, friendly staff, probably went at the wrong time as there was a VIP party. Wish I tried out their famous Nutella p

    The restaurant is more a place in Montreal where you go to be seen. Both pasta dishes were extremely salty while the whole wheat pizza wasn't bad. To be summarize, this is a place where you go to look at the scenery and enjoy the servers but the food is better left uneaten.

    The tuna tartar is the best in Montreal and one of the main reasons for going there. We love the appetizers and the fact that there are so many wonderful choices. The desserts are very disappointing and they need to work on that aspect of their menu. We had the s'mores and it was blah!

Hamburgers, Chilean sea bass and the lamb were beyond expectations.The desert platter was decadent and delicious, especially the cappuccino crème brule with chocolate ganacheIf you go, ask to sit in Sophie's section.

    Food was very tasty, really good! Our group (6) all enjoyed their choices. We had the poutine and tartar as entrees and lamb & orecchiete pasta! All Delish! Only draw back: entrees were really small for the price. I originally wanted to reserve for 8 but website didnt allow me to (claiming no availability). So I had to reduce my party to 6. BUT, while at the restaurant they offered to add a table for2 more places because we seemed a little tight! Although somewhat nicely intended, it was frustrating considering I had to drop 2 people before.

    Dined on 7/24/2010
    Tagliatone con funghi was superb, as was the S'mores dessert. Service attentive and friendly. Restaurant gets very crowded after dinner, at which point servers attending to bottle service patrons become aggressive and pushy as they maneuver through the thick crowd. We get it - you have to do your job, but we didn't come to get shoved around either. I guess that's why everyone ends up dancing on the tables, to avoid the mosh-pit. Outdoor patio had a more casual-yet-trendy vibe, but noise by-laws mean the music can't be played on the patio after a certain hour.

    Great ambiance. It was my 26th birthday dinner with close friends, and we had an amazing time. We were seated in the nice booth in the corner inside & service was exceptional. I enjoyed the macaroni & cheese w gorgonzola (it was also presented uniquely in a red pot). My friends all tasted the S'mores dessert and described it as one of the best desserts they ever had! After dinner, we relaxed on the patio outside. What more can you ask for: drinks with friends outside during a beautiful evening. Macaroni proved to be one of the best restaurants in Montreal. Keep it up!

    It was my third visit to Macaroni Bar. The service is very kind, friendly, and prompt. I like how the menu is not overwhelmed with many choices and the main dish food portions are just right. As with every restaurant, the wine lists are always similar. I enjoy seeing a wine list that doesn't have the same wine selection across town. Perhaps a specialty wine list? I enjoy the atmosphere. It is classy, elegant, chic, and casual at the same time. And, the terrace is a gem!

    Great restaurant, ambiance builds after 9PM. Quiet dinner available from 7. Disappointed with the table assignment as it was in the path from the kitchen to tables and leaned against the DJ Booth, especially since the restaurant was almost empty at 7:30. If you spend $160+ for 2 in a restaurant you expect a more decent table. Other couples who arrived later obtained seating next to the window, much better. This table should not even be part of the seating plan. Otherwise great food and wine. Calamari entree very good. Linguine with clams was excellent. Salmon was great. The cheesecake desert gets 5 stars for originality. Would definitely go back and stay if seated more appropriately.

    Dined on 4/23/2010
    Dinning at Macaroni Bar was a huge disapointment. Our waiter was very rude, food was ok (nothing special). The Martini's were the best part. The waiter kicked us out before he even took our orders. He kept pressuring us that we have to be gone by 9:30 but did not take our orders until 9:00. If we have to leave so quickly, perhaps our waiter could have informed us this upon arrival and taken our orders sooner to manage the situation properly. We were seated in an area where they kept opening the terrasse door and it was very cold. Even when we told them that this constant breeze was bothering us, they did not seem to care. Very uncomfortable and not worth it. The poor service really ruined it. Never again will I step foot in there.
