A word from Moishes
There's a reason Forbes Magazine named us one of the Top 10 Steakhouses in the world. And why Moishes has become a Montreal favorite that has endured over 75 years. We think it's the authentic taste of each one of the old world favorites on our menu.

If you're an old friend, welcome back. We're always delighted to see you. We couldn't have come this far without you. If you haven't yet, we warmly invite you to discover the taste for yourself, at our restaurant overlooking historic Saint-Laurent Boulevard (The Main.)

Ce n’est pas par hasard que le magazine Forbes nous ait désigné comme l’une des 10 meilleures maisons de steak au monde. Et que Moishes soit l’un des hauts lieux de la gastronomie montréalaise depuis plus de 70 ans. D’après nous, c’est à cause du goût authentique des mets à l’ancienne qui figurent sur notre menu.

Si vous êtes un habitué du restaurant, ce sera un plaisir de vous revoir. Nous sommes toujours ravis de vous accueillir.

    Love Moishes every time we go. The food is consistently great, the service too. Loved the filet, and especially Moishes special chicken. Monte Carlo potato is a must. So are the grilled oyster mushrooms.

    Amazing value on the after 9 p.m. (Thursday to Saturday) menu. $25 for entree, main meal and coffee or tea. Great service, water was always filled up as soon as glass was put down. Very good food, but extremely noisy. The regular priced menu is exhorbitant. If you are planning on eating supper at a more normal time, The Main Steakhouse is an ideal replacement. Prices are about 1/3 of that at Moishe's and their steaks as just as good.

    I've been to Moishe's during regular hours but decided to give it a shot for the special after 9 pm. Moishe' is a place that I love to go because of the service and for the ambience. Love the pickles and the coleslaw, love the wine list and the rum selection at the bar, and it's nice to get dressed up on occasion. I do however think that the steak is disappointing. It's cooked right but just not a fan of the cuts. None the less worth the visit after 9.

    I cant usually afford to go to a place like this, but a special occasion with a good buddy called for it. Everything was perfect, including the juiciest ribeye i have ever had. But what really impressed me was the service. Maybe im jus not used to such amazing and attentive staff. thank you for the great experience

    The ambiance was a loud, but the service excellent. Although for such a restaurant I would appreciate if they applied their dress code more rigourously. Both times I went there, there were young adults wearing baggy pants, large hoodies and a cap. The filet mignon there is now my benchmark against which I compare every piece of meal I eat. I like it blue or pittsburgh style and they absolutely master it. I went there a second time wondering if it could be as good as the first time, wasn't disappointed.

    Dined on 10/31/2014
    The steak was tender, tasty and cooked exactly as I ordered it. The appetizers of pickled salmon were also delicious but the time between those two courses was very close. In other words, it was not a working lunch that we had to get back to the office in an hour.. it was an evening out. The other point that was a little tacky is that this restaurant as far back as I can remember includes the potato sides Monte Carlo and or fries with no charge. They are now charging for the potatoes. Their explanation is that the price of the beef increased... my answer increase the price of the beef to compensate for that and don't charge for the potatoes. At this rate they will charge for the cole slaw pretty soon. That being said I will still return.

    We as a small group of 8 to 10 have been to Moishes on more than one occasion, and it remains the top of my list. The waiters never let your bread tray, water glass or (wonderful) coleslaw dish stay empty. There were 8 of us, ordering 8 different degrees of how we liked our steaks cooked, and I never heard one negative comment from the group. All of us went away completely satisfied, both in mind and in belly.

    Food was great as always, surprised to have had one bad experience. One of the steaks came overcooked and it took a very long time to get a new steak (should have been a priority to our waiter to get the steak back really quickly). By the time it came everyone had finished eating and my husband did not want to eat alone (had lost his apetite). At the waiters insistence he took the steak home but it was just not the same. It kind of put a damper on our evening

    While Moishes had a great atmosphere and friendly services, I was not particularly impressed with the actual food. Instead of a juicy seasoned steak, I was given a $40 junior cut that had little to no flavor. Yes, I understand it is old fashioned but I was expecting some type of seasoning. Again, they did advertise their style and unfortunately, I overlooked this.

    Hadn't been to this restaurant in over 20 years and was very excitied to try. Upon sitting down we first noticed a crad in the middle of the table that said "given recent increases in meat prices, we want to maintain our current pricing, so we will now be chanrging for french fries and potatoes". Our entire party thought that was pretty cheap given that the prices were already on the high side for Montreal steakhouses. We found the service to be mediocre at best. The waiter was infelxible and in a rush. We received our maindishes as soon as the cleared the plates from our apetizer and we felt very rushed. Waiter blamed me for having a food alergy and having to return the desert which did not mention the problematic item on the menu.

    oui, le service est excellent, la viande est d'une qualité exceptionnelle, mais de là à payer 55$ pour un morceau de viande, ça n'entre pas dans mes critères... Une facture de plus de 200$ pour 2 plats principaux et une bouteille de vin. Pas d'entrées ni de desserts, et la carte des vins débute à 50$ la bouteille... Décidément pas à la portée de toutes les bourses! De plus, j'ai été surprise d'y trouver de si jeunes enfants (5-6 ans) accompagnant leurs parents. Moi qui allait souper en couple pour un moment de tranquilité, c'est raté!

    The moment one walks in the door you can feel the warmth of the classy establishment, the greeting from management one can sense they really care. The tradition has not been lost, the slaw & pickles the French bread a classic. The beef was tender and cooked to perfection and the fish was fresh and delightful, the side are for two diners great portions wines for tastes and budgets and service impeccable. I truly recommend this establishment after all 75 years in business is because one does it right for their patrons CDROM4U
