Wonderful experience, second
Wonderful experience, second time there in 15 years - same as before. Will definitely book again the next time in Montreal
Best steak anywhere!

Expecting little more
Based on reviews on OT I was expecting a little more. A dress code would be appropriate in my opinion. Not from Montreal, I was surprised to see so many patrons in jeans and a sweater/casual shirt. I was hoping for more class and romance in the atmosphere. Food was good value and the steak was good but not great(a little over cooked). Service was good throughout the night. I would probably try another steakhouse on my next visit to Montreal but I might give this one a try again somewhere down the road.

Easter Sunday Brunch
What a lovely way to spend Easter Sunday My wife and I and 8 year old granddaughter were delighted with the Easter Sunday Brunch. Staff and service excellent, food very good with much variety and great ambiance. Would not hesitate to recommend and we will be returning.

We decided to come to Old
We decided to come to Old Montreal from Ontario for a birthday celebration weekend. I choose Vieux-Port Steakhouse mainly based on the website. I was very pleased with my choice as was the rest of the party. Our server, George, was fantastic! He made everything even better. The new manager approached us near the end of our visit making sure we were satisfied with our experience. Nice touch.

Good Food Arrogant Service
I went to this restaurant with my girlfriend the night I was going to propose to her. The food was very good (cudos on their cesar salad) but the service was arrogant. Our waitor seemed surprised that we did not want to see the wine list (we do not drink) and when we asked for water he offered bottled or "regular" water. For the rest of the night he treated us like second class citizens and didnt come around to check if we needed anything while eating our meal. Other than that once again the food was great, their terasse has a nice feel to it and whats better than a nice dinner at the old port on a saturday night. After dinner we went on a horse drawn carriage ride and...she said yes!

A variety of good food, excellent service, I would rate it 10/10
5/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food, even better service!
The Mother's Day brunch buffet was fabulous, and the service was very friendly and attentive. We were delighted with our experience. Would definitely go back!

Mother's Day Brunch
We were a group of 11, originally we were suppose to be 8 but last minute additions pushed us up to 11 and the staff was very accommodating. When I confirmed the last time, they informed us of parking issues and traffic. Which was very helpful and helped us arrive on time. Servers were wonderful. We stayed very late for brunch and they didn't push us out the door. Food was ok, nothing special
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanks for your hospitality
Great dining experience. Understated...genuine...Good food

Superb Meal and Great Service
I'm partial to places with great food and service. This restaurant was fantastic on both counts. I'll return the next time I'm in Montreal.
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time here. It was our last night in Montreal and we wanted a nice experience. The food was great, the atmosphere was perfect, and the staff was very professional. Our server gave us complimentary white wine and was very helpful considering out our limited knowledge of French.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great service, good food. Well priced. Could not of asked for more
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bachelor party dinner prior to evening activities and just what everyone needed. Great steak and service. Really friendly when we came in the door and didn't stop until we left. We went early and had the entire second level to ourselves half the time we were there. Really friendly waitress. The bread was excellent. And did I mention the steak? Cooked perfectly and everyone left satisfied. Good portions compared to other "classy" steakhouses and nice to have sides included. Would recommend.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
If you are in old Montreal this is a great place for Sunday brunch. Great selection of food. Omelettes made on the spot. Would defiantly go again.
6/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ordered as usual the new York style cut steak and it was very good as usual. My gf ordered it well done and it was a bit burnt but it's too be expected with a well cooked steak. M Cesar salad entrance is nothing special and the dessert (chocolat mousse is very good)
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall very good....but waiter
Overall very good....but waiter may need to care about their body odor.....
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
i invited all my friends to this resto for my birthday party. it was a night i will not forget. i enjoyed myself and so did my friends. thanks for the memory
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoyed my food and the service was great. This is definitely a restaurant I would visit again.
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good Food - Slow Service
Have eaten here a number of times and the food and service has always been good. Last Saturday however it took over an hour to get our main course after the appetizers and when the food did arrive the vegetables and French fries on one plate were cold.
The waiter apologised a number of times for the wait and the meal with that was cold was complementary. That being said if it had been our first visit it may well have been our last..
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great seats by the window... Overall great restaurant.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great service,
Great food, great service, high taxes... It was my first time in Montreal and went to Vieux-Port Steakhouse for dinner and it was great...
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best beef medallions I've had! Thanks again Vieux Port Steakhouse!
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Four and counting...............
July 11th marked the fourth time in the last year and a half that I/we ate at the Vieux-Port Steakhouse. The food, sevice, location are all draws to ensure return visits. Our table was located directly beside/beneath the staircase to the second floor, and while it offerred the occassional scenic view, I will specify a preferred second floor table with my next reservation.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't have words to explain how awesome is this restaurant!! I really like it!!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
All four of us greatly enjoyed
All four of us greatly enjoyed our supper. Your 4 or 5 choices for $29 is a super idea.
Thank you for a great experience. Two persons in our group were first timers and were pleasantly surprised.
7/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice steak house
The reservation through Open Table made for a stress free evening since Old Montreal is very busy. The food was very good. The steaks were done just right. It is a little pricy but comparable to other steak houses. Nice atmosphere, too.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pricy food
Great food and excellent service has a price. I was a bit disappointed by the deserts of the Table d'Hote. The terrace is nice for summer evenings.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best lobster I've had
Hand picking my lobster was a great experience and it was cooked to perfection.
8/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
I took my friend to the Sunday Brunch at Le Vieux Port for her birthday. And she loved it! I am a plain/fussy eater but she loves variety and enjoyed sampling many of the dishes. The look on her face told me that she enjoyed everying from the omlet station to the smoked salmon, shrimp, mussels, roast beef, pasta, desserts, limitless coffee.... We arrived at 12:15 and didn't leave until after 3:30. The atmosphere was buzzing with energy but not overwhelming. The service was good...our coffee cups were constantly refilled and usually by the time we came back from the buffet, our dishes had been cleared away. Although i did not sample half as much as my friend, I enjoyed the experience. Another visit is definitely on my agenda!

Impeccable Food and Service
Thoroughly recommend dining here. Our server was particularly attentive to the needs of a member of my party that requires a gluten free meal due to celiac. Both our meals were perfect. The venue allowed us to now have a great memory of the last weekend of the summer, dining out in Old Montreal, under the sky.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great post-wedding brunch
My out of town guests all loved it, awesome location for te Old Port experience and food was better than expected for a buffet, which was a really pleasant surprise.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Attentive Service
The Sunday brunch buffet is amazing. Where else can you get eggs and bacon with a side of Shrimp and Cannelloni? We went for a birthday but did not tell the staff. Once they realized someone was unwrapping presents they brought a complimentary piece of cake. Also went there a few times for supper before and it is excellent.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Upon our arrival there was a nice ambiance, we were seated right away giving view to beautiful St-Paul street. Our waiter was very nice and had conversation, he didn't rush us and suggested the plate that we both were delighted. The filet mignon wss well cooked n melted as it was cut. And what to say of the desert but Oh my god. The restaurant is big and spacious and can welcome groups but also nice and private for a beautiful, memorable romantic evening. I recomend this restaurant as one of Montreal's finest Steakhouse I have been to. Its not to pricey considering the quality and they have a great variety in there wine list at good price.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great value! Great food!
Certainly a place to visit while you are in Montreal. This Old Montreal restaurant has great food! Great service! Prices are reasonable for what you get. Ambiance great! There brunch is exceptional!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Something not to miss!
We were there for brunch on a Sunday. We arrived at 10:30 am and the place was almost empty. A bit later it was full! It offers the richest buffet I have ever seen in a fantastic price! Seafood, meat, sweets, everything you can imagine of, orange juice and coffee/ tea at discretion. A place not to miss when in Montreal! A big compliment for the people working there!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had never visited Montreal, My husband and I were interested in eating some good meat. Using the AAA Tour Book we went through the list of recommended places to eat. After narrowing down the list to 3 I went on-line to review. You all are good! Finding reviews from only 2-3 days before, all very positive, was impressive. It was such a pleasant and sumptuous experience. Should our travels take us back to Montreal, we will certainly return again. It was also a delight speaking with Mike Rocco, the Assistant General Manager. He certainly has a passion for Vieux-Port.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
So Glad We Went
We ate early, but nevertheless, the staff was attentive and knowledgeable, the food wonderful and the atmosphere above average. Nothing to lose here. We loved it and would go back again.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing birthday experience
I would recommend everyone to go to view port steakhouse it was a great evening and could have not asked for a better evening and service ! The waiter was great the food was to die for
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
a gem in old montreal
we have never before been at this resto for dinner but it was terrific. good food, service, quiet for easy conversation. we have sampled the sunday brunch before and loved it (hard not to over-eat with such yummy dishes).. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and service,
My boyfriend and I went for his birthday dinner, the service didn't disappoint!
The chocolate mousse was amazing!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
On our vacation we ate out every night. This was my favorite place, and to be honest, I don't even like steak (my husband loves). First, we requested a romantic table, which we received. Secondly, The service was on-point. The timing of our courses was appropriate. Lastly, the food was delicious. We ordered a seafood sampler appetizer, which was out of this world; oysters, crab legs, lobster tail, shrimp, and scallops. All cooked to perfection. Our entrees were equally as delicious. We had no room for dessert, but had it anyway, and it was excellent. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic evening. We had a great view of the street from the second floor. It was noisy in the restaurant, but honestly, everything else outshines that.

Loved my steak
I really enjoyed my steak, it was cooked perfect! I did have the calamari and I didn't enjoy it at all. The rings we're very thick and chewy, I alway order calamari when I go out and it usually is thin .
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
my friend recommended this restaurant to me. and i had my birthday party here. the food is amazing and the service is very good. i really like the food and the environment. i am looking forward to enjoy dinner there!!!
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
My Husband have been coming to this restaurant for over 10yrs. every special occasion we always come here. staff, food, service, ambiance.. EVERYTHING.. it is truly one of the most coziest, romantic places.. We love it. Also best Steak & Best Lobster..Actually best everything!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Attentive service, average food and a very nice location. Great for large groups.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing night out
We had an amazing time trying out this steakhouse. We went during the Grande dégustation and had the opportunity to eat a baseball steak cooked to perfection. Amazing staff and ambiance.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Meal to Rememebr
What a lovely ambiance.
We had a great table and an awesome server.
The food was amazing - we started with the Calamari followed by the lobster tail and Bison rib steak.
We were not disappointed.
The cheesecake and crème brule were the perfect end to the meal.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal without being rushed.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service were both outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about my waiter, who was pleasant, professional, courteous, and attentive. He was the best server I have ever had in a Montreal restaurant. The steak was amazing. I have eaten at nearly all if not all the Montreal steakhouses and this sirloin held its own with the best of them and indeed, surpassed a few places (I won't mention any names, but you'll pay three times the price for less). The wine list is a bit on the high end, but you can find a few bargains: I had a perfectly delightful bottle of French Merlot for less than forty bucks. I would go to this restaurant again in a heartbeat and recommend it to the toughest critic - you won't be disappointed.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great steaks and value
We dined downstairs, and it was so lovely. Nice tables. Wood burning fireplace. Quite nice on a cold fall day and good for a romantic outing. The service was attentive and the food was brought out at good intervals. My wife had the filet medallions wrapped in bacon, frites (thick cut steak fries) and green beans. She had a mesclun salad to start with viniagrette and chocolate mousse cake to finish. She said it was the best meal she'd had in years. I started with PEI oysters, which were fresh and fantastic. Caesar salad was ok. The bison ribeye was incredibly lean and of flavor between ribeye and lamb chop. Price was reasonable and less than half what we spent at Toque the evening before for a meal that was less impressive and satisfying.

Excellent Sunday Brunch
The Sunday brunch was outstanding. Large selection of fresh, well seasoned food at a very reasonable price. It was one of the best buffets we've ever been to in terms of choice, quality, and price. We'll definitely be back.
