Diner Reviews
  • "If you're looking for great seafood dishes you have to visit Maestro. Oysters are fantastic and fresh!! Wine list is great and we really enjoyed ourselves. If you're in Montreal check out this place. Great service great ambiance and amazing food!!!! Two thumbs up!!"

  • "Extremely disappointing. Food was uninspired, oysters not cold enough but what really ruined it for us was a buffoon for a waiter. He clearly is incapable of working in the service industry. He was much more interested in $ than helping to create a culinary experience. Someone else might have salvaged our night by recommending better choices as they watched our disappointment and annoyance. I hope the owner catches on to him soon."

  • "Tuna was outstanding. The raw oyster selection was a real treat for my out of town guests. Rave reviews about the scallops as well. Owner popped by our table quite often to make sure all was well, which it was!"

  • "Picked this restaurant out randomly from the guidebook--great find!! In the Plateau area of Montreal with plenty of city activity. Excellent preparation of oysters, shrimp and fish. Highly recommend for travelers. A bit loud on the patio due to a band playing down the street, but the restaurant was very accommodating and moved us inside quickly."

  • "Very good selection of oysters from varied waters. Waitress was very helpful in selecting oysters. Friend had mussels and found them to be very good. Dined at sidewalk table that was fun for people watching. Good wine list."

  • "My friend randomly found Maestro SVP online and we decided to go for the all you can eat mussels on Sunday night. It was great mussels and great value considering it was all you can eat."

  • "Rated 4 stars because of the price, it would be 5 based on food and service. Food/service were top notch, fantastic place for Oysters - selection of ~2 doz varieties but can get expensive quickly with large oysters priced at $6.75 per (Canadian). Mussels provencal app was excellent. The seafood pasta and swordfish were scrumptious but we would have preferred less olive oil on the pasta, there was a lot of oil. The food is fabulous as is the service but be prepared to pay for it. Dinner for two with a dozen oysters, 1/2 lb mussels app, 2 entrees, a shared desert and one of the more moderately priced bottles of wine with tip/tax cost $300 canadian. (We're used to getting equally as good meals for substantially less in the NYC/NYC Metro area)."

  • "A place to visit every time I am in Montreal. Love the location on St Laurent. Met Ilene the fabulous owner this time and asked her to choose a selection of oysters from their list of 20 or more for me as a dozen. If you love oysters, this is the spot!"

  • "Salade césar excellente, goût appenrenté à celle faite à la table par maitre d'hotel comme dans les grands restos. Tres grand choix d'huitres. Nous y retournerons."

  • "Although we showed up a little late they still had a table waiting for us. We had the Maestro Platter for 2 or something like that. All of the seafood was cooked perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed my night."

  • "Excellent selection of oysters from various countries! And the quality of the main dishes stands out. I did find it too pricy but will consider it when I come back to Montreal."
    Dined on 8/11/2013
  • "First, let me say that we loved the food at Maestro. We live in Philadelphia (USA), eat out a lot and are accustomed to the cost but thought the meal at Maestro was over priced by $15 to $20. Then, in addition to the cost of the food and drink bill, another near 15% is added for tax plus whatever you may decide to add for a tip making it a truly memorable evening of dining. It is noted they have an extensive wine list from which to choose."

  • "The food and portions were average at best. Maybe I should've gotten what all the other diners had-mussels and fries."
    Dined on 7/22/2013
  • "Unassuming mecca for oysters on busy thoroughfare a mile or so from downtown Montreal. Waitress was friendly, engaging and knowledgeable about the large selection of raw oysters and wine paring. Oysters were fresh, juicy and needed no accompaniment of any kind; although, several were offered--mignonette. Fresh crusty roll and sweet butter were a huge upgrade from oyster crackers. Others had cold seafood platter and nice preparation of mahi-mahi. Overall, a little pricey for the location, but the food is worth it."

  • "... Not great. On a comparative scale, this was ok but not worth price point. Good service. Bu no flavors that surprised or impressed. Overall no hard feelings but was nothing that felt notable. At $175 that felt a little underwhelming. Compared to other places in montreal Quebec, overall, better quality is ready to br seized in the vacinity."

  • "I end up at Maestro SVP at least twice a year when i am in town. the oyster bar is unparalleled, and the 'bucket of seafood' superb. this time out we opted for the chowder, some scampis, and a lobster - all well worth the price, given they were fresh, and perfectly prepared. MSVP is truly one of my favourite restaurants on the planet."

  • "Oysters fan this is it , dont search anymore this is THE place you have to try right now, its really not expensive for the quality they offer and they have an amazing variety of fresh oysters, raw or cooked they are all amazing. They also have small apetizers that are really good to share. Its a really nice place to go and share a couple of plates and having a good bottle of wine. Its one of my perfect week days restaurant."

  • "Prior good reviews played major role in going here. We showed up on time for our reservations to find the restaurant full. The person in charge then went on to trash Open Table that their system is terrible and she hates it - yet still uses it. 40 minutes later our table was ready along with some unappreciated comments from the people forced to leave their table to accommodate us. Food took a long time. My Curry Thai shrimp arrived without the Curry Thai sauce - back to the kitchen - then back with a watered down sauce that was terrible. One of the worst restaurants in Montreal. Very disappointed. To top it off - attempted to pay with Amex - as the info on Open Table lists Amex as accepted - they don't accept Amex - go figure."

  • "We thought our seafood dinner was great and it was more than enough for two of us with appetizers to start. Would definitely go back when I am in Montreal."
    Dined on 10/9/2011
  • "We adore Maestro SVP! Their oyster selection is fantastic and you could easily make a meal of them, but we also love the mussels. The wait staff is attentive (at one point we had every single staffer in the place descend on our table to help clear plates), and everything is always delicious (particularly anything with the green peppercorn treatment). The champagne mignonette is a must-order if you're having oysters."

  • "Food is fantastic! Oysters any way you like them and very fresh. Mussels were glorious. Service is great, attentive, but not smothering. Met the owner, who recommended a superb wine. Excellent dinner spot in a cool area of Montreal."
