Lovely throw back atmosphere. Casual but hip dining. Unfussy food well prepared. Sunday roast just like mom or grandma might make. Pleasant atmosphere day or night. Gastropub you wish was around the corner.

Beautiful decor, good food.
Heart of downtown Montreal, beautifully restored last century tavern serves well prepared dishes. Parking next door makes the location very convenient. Limited menu, English pub fare with a flair. Good wine list. Extensive cocktail list. Very noisy when the place gets packed, which would be most weekend nights. Would go back.

GREAT FOOD, FAST SERVICE.
Great pre-habs game location. The food was excellent - we had the mussels cooked in broth of cider and bacon! The sticky toffee pudding was a bit more well done than traditionally served, but came with a really refreshing scoop of coffee flavored ice cream, so overall great!
The wine list was extensive, but we kept to the cocktails and beer/cider. The drinks prices were on the high side, but tasted great, used premium ingredients and came quickly!

Discovered on Montreal divas
Discovered on Montreal divas blog. It was exactly as they described. The ambiance was supreme. The menu and food met our expectations. The roasted cod was the best cod I have had outside of Newfoundland. The portion sizes were just right - not too large. Definitely quality over quantity. We met an old friend for dinner and were able to have a great discussion. The server did not rush us and this made for memorable evening. We will go back next time we are in Montreal.

I have been to Tavern Square
I have been to Tavern Square Dominion a few times. The endive salad, beet salad and salmon & blini is the perfect trio to share "à deux"!
The service is always very good... relaxed yet professional and attentive.

Great Service and Food
The top notch cocktails are always a great start to a fine meal at the Dominion. As tempting as the regular menu always is, I advise you to ask about the specials (apoetizer and main course); you might be peasantly surprised by what is being offered.
A great place for a small group of friends or an intimate twosome in this adults only venue. The wine list is always original and the waitress or waiter is knowlegeable and able to make great pairing recommendations.

Dominion Sqare Tavern has quickly become my favorite downtown spot. From home-made Ginger Ale in the Rye and Ginger to the old-fashioned-styled with a modern twist fare, DST provides an experience fit for financiers and hipsters alike. DST is a nod to Montreal's heyday with modern sensibilities. The tavern should be required visiting for anyone in Montreal.

We were traveling from the US and looking for a Montreal bistro - our hotel recommended this and it was great! The food was delicious, the service friendly, and the vibe exciting. The braised beef was delicious!

My kinda hangout!
Food was fantastic especially the braised beef, pulled pork and fries, and the nutmeg doneut with sour creme. We ate there twice while visiting Montreal!
5/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
So good, we went twice!
It had a cozy, vintage feel to it which we appreciated on a cold rainy night. I ordered a Pimms Cup which is a traditional English drink and I loved it. To start we ordered the bone marrow appetizer. It was gigantic and could have fed 4 people. It was tasty at first but is very rich and kind of got icky after eating so much. I got the mussels in a bacon/cider sauce with fries and it was great. Mussels were delicious in that sauce and they didn't skimp on the portion at all. My favorite part of the meal was the nutmeg donuts. They were so doughy and warm. We returned the next evening for drinks and sat at the bar. Chatting with the bar tender was the highlight of our night. He was funny, interesting, knowledgeable and made great drinks.

Overall great experience. Food was not as bad as some reviewers wrote. Definitely above average food for an oldschool english bar. Decor is very unique and love the code of arms for the provinces. Good alcohol selection. A bit pricey but definitely worth going again.

Just what I needed
Excellent cocktails - the Gin Fizz keeps me coming back! We arrived at 10pm and it was buzzing, but comfortable. Great appetizers, fun menu. My haddock was very plain, but the tartar sauce made up for it! I really enjoy Dominion Square Tavern, and will return again for lunch or late night, the ambience is energetic and still classy!

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and it was a great experience. Our waitress was both extremely professional and very friendly. The food was _outstanding_ and the variety of cocktails we tried were delicious. The prices are a little high for an every day sort of meal, but for the occasional splurge or special occasion, this spot has become my new go-to place!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
so... charming sweet spot!
The ambience alone would bring me back to this oh so charming restaurant! Loved it!! Very Romantic! The roasted cod was fantastic! The fries were perfect! The bread pudding I enjoyed, but I have had better! I will be sure to visit again next time I am back in Montreal!:) I will now always recommend this restaurant to a friend to enjoy as well!

About the best place for lunch in downtown Montréal. Food is great, atmosphere and service is at his best.

Fun and energetic
Comfort food. I had the duck. Kind of rich but very good. The highlight of dinner was the desert.... butterscotch pudding!

My favourite spot for that extra-special date night.
I love that I can reserve with Open Table.

portions too small
portions were quite small. I had the soup of the day and roasted cod fish as a main dish, everyone at my table was still hungry after my meal. food was good, too bad it lacked value for the price charged.

Great location to take out-of-town
Great location to take out-of-town guests for lunch. Highly energetic, wonderful ambiance, very good service. Ploughman's lunch is my go to meal. A bit on the pricey side.

The place is beautiful and the service excellent but the food was not consistently amazing. The first time I went, I had a bigger group which allowed us to discover the menu. For what it is worth, the seasoning left something to be desired.

Great classic French bistro. Simple food prepared well and served by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. This was our first time, but we will absolutely be back!

Love this place but noise level and heat get a little intense quickly!
Still would recommend anytime!
Great and quick service and excellent drinks and food!

Tasty with old fashioned pub feel
This restaurant puts a French spin on English standards. If you like old fashioned drinks and a good selection of scotch, this place is for you. It can be a bit loud and it's best to have a reservation - I find that service is always better if you get an earlier reservation since it becomes quite busy late in the evening. My favourite is the pan fried cod, with the salad (either the spinach watercress or the bacon tomato salad). The fresh donuts are the way to go if you're going to have a dessert - otherwise they aren't that spectacular. However, this time we had a spice cake with pumpkin ice cream and applesauce that was the dessert special - that was definitely outstanding. If more desserts were like that I'd order it more often.

Worth the trip
I came here late one night manyonrhs ago and had one of the best meals I have ever had. So good I took my gf from Toronto to Montreal just to relive that meal. Definitely worth the trip. I am not a fan of him but the homemade gin and tonic is amazing and the good was cooked perfectly. Thank you very much and I will recommend this restaurant to who ever comes.
