Thanks for such a nice evening...
La diversité du menu est très intéressante, l’ambiance est excellente, surtout avec la vue ainsi sur la cathédrale et sur le boulevard René-Lévesque. L’accueil et le service sont plus que chaleureux, on se sent bien, on se sent voulu plutôt qu’ailleurs où parfois on semble déranger. J’ai déjà mangé au Beaver Club et c’est la même chose, chaque fois on se sent un invité spécial! Sans vouloir attirer l’attention, c’est toujours un sentiment agréable!!
Nous avons été reçu par Caroline et servi par Sylvain, les 2 forts agréables, attentifs et professionnels.
Merci beaucoup pour la belle soirée!!

Wonderful food and service!!
My friend and I were staying in the hotel for a girls weekend away from our husbands. We decided stick to the hotel because it was raining out. I was glad we did because the food and service were amazing. Our waiter was fantastic and my Arctic char was cooked perfect. I appreciated the healthy choice menu since that seems to be a rarity in French restaurants. My only complaint is that the restaurant was not busy at all. There were about 4 groups of diners and they sat us all next to each other. Since there was no other noise you could literally hear every persons conversation And it felt like everyone could hear yours. Other then that, wonderful service, delicious food. Would come back!

Dreaded going out on Mother's
Dreaded going out on Mother's Day so this was a real find. Good food, excellent service and best of all a nice quiet ambiance with a window table overlooking St. Mary's Basilica. Everything was very well prepared, and all of us enjoyed our meals. Would recommend passing on the desserts as they are just fair but it is a good place to go if you want a quiet evening meal with friends, family or couple just to converse and enjoy good food with an excellent wine choice.

Great food and atmosphere
The service was great, and the selection of food was fantastic. We opted for the Host Table menu, and were not disappointed!

Un bon repas
Une belle expérience, je reviendrai. Service courtois et rapide, menu diversifié. Le bar à salade vaut le détour. J'y retournerai!

Very nice place
We went there for our 40th wedding anniversary. Food was very good and tasty, nice fancy presentation. The service was a bit too fast. We were there on my last birthday in December and it was better. We had time digest between the course. They brought me a special dessert for free.

Nice romantic evening
There weren't too many people in the restaurant on a Friday night, so the service was very quick and the food was excellent!
We also went to the Sunday brunch which was exquisite! Loads of choice and everyone had a great time!

A special dining out night
I found the "smart casual" dress code leaned more towards a more 'comfortable' dress code, shorts, t-shirts, jeans, etc and was in sharp contrast with the decor and ambience the restaurant displayed.
Be that as it may, the food, service, and cordial demeanor of the staff easily made up for this drawback.
The cocktails were excellent.
The fact that there was charging station at the Queen E underground parking lot was a plus, as I drive a fully electric vehicle.
Not being offered a parking voucher to cover the excessive fee of $22 is disappointing.

Great experience but...
The only thing "negative" I can say about this restaurant is the price of alcoolic breavages.
The wine was almost 3 times the SAQ price (usually about twice ) and a Kir Royal at $25.00 is exagerated.
However beside the above , the food was great and so was the service.

We had booked a meal as a Wedding Present for some friends of ours who had recently got married. Everything about the evening was charming - the surroundings, the food, the ambience, the attention of the waiters, the flowers on the table, a special desert provided by the staff, etc. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

The staff here is the best, warm and gracious from the moment you enter. There have been a few modifications in some of the ways that items are presented. The stellar mix offered at the bar has changed, I prefer the previous one with sesame. Some items are a bit pricey, and some are a great value. It pays to look at the menu over, ask questions and make modifications if there is something else you prefer, as your wish will likely be accommodated.

Always ready to serve even the most discerning of guests, Le Montrealais is a great place to escape with friends for a memorable dining experience. I managed to sample on of the scones during the special tea service offered, and like everything Fairmont it was the best ever.
When renovations that are planned materialize hopefully the spirit of this great establishment with be preserved, along with the great service that is always in evidence here. In other Fairmont locations this has been a challenge.

One of my favorites
Its more the gracious hospitality than anything else that stands out about Le Montrealais, its welcoming, inviting and genuine. The staff always handles everyone as if they were guests in their home. The Chef and Maitre'd ensure that your visit will be memorable. Don't hesitate to request a specialty item, with some notice its likely that any reasonable request will be honored.

Window views are best
For taking in the activity outside, the hustle and bustle of the city, and a great view of the restaurant as well. When busy the restaurant offers an area upstairs as well as a private room for special dinners.

This is a great place for an afternoon business meeting for high tea. Service is great, and the presentation is special. Great teas too !

Fairmont Le Montrealais review
Jacques the manager is very nice and courteous. The waiter made a mistake, and Jacques apologizes right away.

I have been frequenting Le Montrealais for 30+ years and have always received special treatment.

One of Montreal's gems
The brunch at 11:30 is fantastic -- the food is wonderful, the service friendly and as attentive as it can be for such a large crowd, and the price downright reasonable for the experience.
