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.

    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

    Steak - Porterhouse for 2 was very good, staff was excellent. Noise level was a bit higher than I like, and some of the clientele were a bit obnoxious. Overall, if I was in Montreal again, I would consider, but not 100% certain I would return.

    My boyfriend and I came here after 9pm for the late night menu, which was $25 for an appetizer and main course. The steaks were delicious, service was very prompt and attentive, and the free pickles and coleslaw was a nice touch. The restaurant was a bit loud but that actually created a more welcoming atmosphere instead of a snotty one like you would expect at a nice restaurant. We will definitely return.

This place is expensive, hopping busy; glad we went. the chopped salad was a bit disappointing compared to other salads at steak houses I have been to.

    Wonderful steak, imposing noise. My honey and I went for a nice dinner, with a gift certificate we received. When I reserved, I specifically aske for a quiet, corner table because I am sensitive to sound. We were seated right at the door, in the flow of traffic. I asked to be moved. We were moved to the back room, but next to a table of 20. Moishe's is one large room, so a quiet, corner table is a challenge, but since I reserved and specifically stated the noise factor, I was disappointed they couldn't oblige. When I asked how long a cover table would take, the maitre d' said "a while." The steak was delicious, but we had to yell at each other to be heard, and we purposely sit next to each other. Noise ruined the dinner, to be honest.

    This is one of those traditions in Montreal! You can never be disappointed by the food or the service. In a class by itself, almost. What stood out this time was the service. Very pleasant, attentive, smiles. Unfortunately, our wine was "corked" and we elected not to replace the bottle. No hesitation from the waiter. Much apologetic. We'll be back!

    The place, the food, the service was excellent. The price, well, it was expensive. I don't mind paying for great service and food but I feel this was a little over the top expensive by maybe 30 percent. I probably won't go back because of this. On the other hand, if it was a dinner with a customer that I wanted to take care of in a special way, I would have no hesitation to go. As a dining experience I am glad that I went and would recommend it to a friend that I know can materially deal with such a place.

    Having read rave reviews we were a little disappointed. The service was excellent, the ambience OK disturbed by a high noise level. We opted for the dry aged rib steak for two, it arrived cooked to description( medium rare), but a little too charcoaled on the exterior for our liking. As far as the best steak we have had, it was good, but far from the best ever. So for the price, over $100 per person for two courses, not great value.

    We were disappointed this time. We went for the 1/2 priced meal after 9:00 PM. The steak was overcooked and dried, the potatoe was dried out and almost tasteless. It seems as though the meal was prepared hours earlier and just kept under a hot lamp. The only thing we enjoyed was the cole slaw and pickeles aerved at the beginning. Overall, the food did not meet our expectaation.

    My husband had the rib steak and thought it was excellent. Due to pregnancy I have been hesitant to order steak at a fine dining restaurant because I need them cooked though for safety issues. I took a leap of faith that a well regarded steakhouse could do a filet mignon though so a pregnant women could have a safe steak to eat. I was told the steak would be butterflied and well done. The steak came out dry and burned in multiple areas.

    Moishes is considered a classic steakhouse with a reputation for excellent food and an old fashioned feel. We were not disappointed. Its quite pricey and the portions are huge. We opted for "Jr rib steaks" and still had leftovers. The steak was delicious as was their signature twice baked potato & crispy fired onions. We were going to forgo the onions fearing it would be too much food-but the waiter recommended a 1/2 order, so we got it. Yum! The service was excellent and the room had a 40-50s feel -mirrors, dark wood and white table cloths. We really enjoyed it and we are not big meat eaters. It looked like the crowd was a mix of tourists like us and lots of local Montrealers.

    After hearing wonderful reviews we booked a reservation. Service was very good and the restaurant is a pleasant atmosphere but our steaks were not properly prepared to our order specifications. We both ordered medium rare. My bone in filet was over cooked and my husbands $80.00 ribeye was undercooked and therefore chewy. The rest of the meal was fine. I ordered a sauce to make my filet less dry. Would I go back? I don't think so not with do many other choices of steakhouses.
