Great Service, Great Food
My husband and I were in Montreal for our anniversary weekend. We selected this through open table and was not disappointed. The ambience is very interesting (in a good way), has an old fashion feel and could afford an upgrade, but actually that is part of its charm. Best of all service was outstanding and the food was excellent. When I only ate half of my codfish special (which was delicious) because the portion was quite generous, the chef came to ask if there was something wrong and if i wanted something else. when I insisted it was just due to the fact that i was stuffed, they insisted on giving me a free glass of wine. Overall, great service, great food...you cannot go wrong.

One of the best restaurant
My wife and I had dinner when we visiting Montreal. We are from Boston, MA. Fried of mine recommended us this restaurant. And we were pleased by outstanding service, food and atmosphere of the place.

Fantastic Service and Food
As is noted in some of the other reviews, the restaurant is a bit worn. However, it still has a great deal of charm. We had the most wonderful waiter- Anthony. What a delight!! He prepares many dishes table side which is wonderfully old school. The food was rich and decadent and amazingly good. I would love to return for another evening!

Un dîner en amoureux
Découvert par le biais de Tuango, mais on retournera surement.
La cuisine est raffinée. De l'entrée au dessert, tout était succulent.
Le service est très courtois en plus le serveur le plus âgé nous a recommandé un vin à notre goût et "à notre porte-feuille". Le serveur le plus jeune est aussi très attentionné et il a un sens de l'humour d'un très bon goût.
Le style du resto est vieillot mais je crois que c'est le cachet recherché. L'ambiance est propice au romantisme.
En plus bien situé, on faisait une belle randonnée au Vieux Port avant et après le dîner.
On retournera c'est sur.

This was our first time at Chez Queux and we will definitely come back. It was a extremely enjoyable evening and our server was exceptional. When he found out it was my birthday he brought a candle to put on top of my cheeze cake. I thought it was a very nice gesture. Thank you for a great evening.

Very nice restaurant in Old
Very nice restaurant in Old Montreal - service was good if not excellent. You need to slow down a bit from Stateside service. Waiter helped us with our menu selections and all entires were well prepared and excellent. A very enjoyable dinner with family.

An outstanding dining experience.
An outstanding dining experience. Each course provided an opportunity for table-side preparation. The caeser salad for two was excellent, prepared with great flair by our server. My main course, filet mignon with shrimp sauteed in whiskey... once again, the table side prep was accomplished with an elegant touch and both were exquisite. My wife's Chilean sea bass with lobster was perfectly executed. For dessert, we enjoyed the classic cherries jubilee flambeed at tableside. Quiet and comfortably elegant. The team approach to serving was well choreographed with the maitre d', server, and backwaiter all present at the right times. Located on the main plaza in Old Montreal, this is a quiet gem in the midst of the busy crowds.

A pleasant surprise
We found this looking for a reservation as it is tough to get a table on a Saturday in the Old Port. It was a pleasant surprise. It was right in the middle of things, but very old school with table side service, charm, and patient, conscientious service. It is a bit expensive, as are most of the restaurants in that part of town, I had the $47 table hote and it was wonderful.

Our waiter was attentive. Enjoyed having some of the meals prepared table side, like the Cesar salad. Steaks prepared table side are just basically seared by your table, not actually cooked by your table. I ordered the duck medium and thought it was a little rare when it arrived (waiter even made comment about it but not till he picked up my plate). Turned out cook knew what he was doing as it was tender and moist. Did not have dessert since we were so full with dinner, good size portions. Nice ambiance, good food in the heart of Old Montreal.

This is the place to relive the past in french cooking
Plates prepared next to your table is not the norm anymore
Fun evening with the kids too

Great location in old town,
Great location in old town, and the atmosphere fits well. The food was quite good -- rack of lamb, duck etc.
They were quite busy (esp for a Tuesday night) and service was a bit slow.

Great wine list
The most important part of our meal, the wine, was delicious. The Sommelier was helpful in selecting a very good bottle. For dinner we had the chateaubriand, which was also delicious. Overall, everything was very good.

We had a party of 8, and it was a bit of a tight fit with three tables put together. The space is better suited to smaller groups. The service was very good, however there was a dish I would have liked to have tried but it included an ingredient I am allergic to; I asked if it could be prepared without this ingredients, but was told "no". I was disappointed because it was not an integral ingredient to the dish, and similar requests I've made elsewhere have been accommodated with no problem. The dish I ordered instead was excellent (beef tenderloin), perfectly done medium-rare, with nice vegetables including a delicious potato "terrine" (not sure if that's the correct name for the potato). Overall, everyone's food was excellent.

Wonderful for Restaurant Week
My husband, daughter and two of her friends and I dined at the restaurant on Saturday night. We were seated promptly and the wait staff was excellent - attentive but not intrusive. The wine list was wonderful as was the Montreal Restaurant week menu. My daughter and her friends enjoyed the maple glazed salmon and butternut squash soup with bacon. The duck was also lovely and the portion sizes were just right.
The maple sugar tarte for dessert was exceptionale. We had a terrific time and would certainly visit again.

A charming haute French experience in Montreal's Old Quarter. Wonderful ambiance, excellent food. The ceasar salad for 2 was excellent and preapred table-side. We had a lovely meal and then walked 2 short blocks to Piano Rouge - to hear some live music and have an after dinner drink. Perfect evening!
