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.

    Husband and I enjoyed our meal. I had the petite filet (best filet I have had) and husband had the steak frites. Loved the house special monte carlo potato! 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.

    Whenever I'm in Montreal, I always go to Moishe's! Food was outstanding. Had Chopped Liver first. The Filet Mignon was tremendous cooked a perfect Medium. Had Grilled Vegetables for a side and it came with Grilled Broccoli! Service was good as he didn't hang over you, yet they knew when you needed something. It's always a nice dinner and great way to treat yourself!

    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.

    The reservation was easy to make and update when required. All meals come with bread, coleslaw, and pickles. We each had a steak with the Monte Carlo potatoe. This was not our first time, and it lived up to our expectations. Moishe's is my goto steak restaurant in Montreal.

    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.

    I had high expectations for this restaurant as I had read some good and bad reviews. I was not overly impressed with the food especially for the price. The service was slow and we had to ask for a lot of things ie. wine list, any special offers etc. It was for an anniversary and overall did not give us the best experience that we have experienced at other restaurants for special occasions.

    I've been here on multiple location and this was the first time that the cut of meat was subpar reflecting the reduced price menu offered after 9pm. The steak was overcooked and not very tender. Definite failure for one of the top steak restos in the city...

    Went here upon rave reviews of a classic steakhouse. What i found instead was a terribly loud, run of the mill restaurant. Ordered the rib steak medium rare and it was so salty that i could only take about 2 bites before deeming it inedible. I almost never send food back but this is one of those rare moments where i really felt cheated getting a terrible steak at a steakhouse. They were gracious and apologetic and prepared another one for me. This one was still salty but less so than the first. The problem with this one was that it was cooked really poorly. Dried out with a terrible sear, huge overcooked gray band out the outside, and completely raw on the inside. Filet minon poutine was terrible too i might add. Will not return.

    This was ours, my husband and mine, second visit to Moishes for dinner. The food was exquisite, just like what we had expected. The wait staff was patient, friendly and knowledgable. We had a few questions about the dinner and drink menu, which were all answered with great detail. I was also glad that one waitress recommended the dessert we ordered. I can't remember the name, but it's the very first one on the dessert menu. It was worth the trip. Looking forward to visiting this restaurant again, hopefully soon!
