Fantastic recommendation from a co-worker - great ambiance and fantastic food! Pulled pork poutine makes me want to travel back!
In house DJ added to the vibe - would go back in a heartbeat!

Come if you're hungry for meat!
This is definitely a place for meat lovers. The steaks were excellent. The portions were quite generous -- we did not have any room for dessert, let's say. The decor was fun, and there was a DJ. It's in the Old City, which is cute.

A must try!
Beautiful place in amongst the cobblestone streets of Old Montréal! Dim red lighting, and comfortable seating helped my husband and I spend three hours dining on our date night during our vacation to Montréal...we shared Charlevoix braised pork poutine to start and it was out of this world! Cocktails and beer, during happy hour our server, Megan, made sure we were getting our money's worth! The sign of a great server...we were very well taken care of.
Our meal was fantastic, my husband's steak was cooked to perfection and served with a foie gras sauce. One of the best steaks he's had!
Highly recommended, beautiful place in a beautiful neighbourhood!

Nice vibe and the food was good. Did not expect a DJ, but it worked. The Poutine was excellent, but was too much as an appetizer. We could barely make a dent in our excellent steaks afterwards. The cocktails were well done, but they were out of cachaca; had to settle for a very good Vesper Martini.

Excellent, down to earth, flavorful, not-for-dieters food! Great service. Surprisingly adequate wine list.

Mechant maison boeuf was a
Mechant maison boeuf was a fantastic dining experience. It's the perfect place for young people to hangout, listen to great beats and enjoy delicious food. Overall, prices weren't bad wither and the drinks were really good! All of the staff were very friendly and helpful!

Dinner for two for my wife's birthday. Food was great and the service was exceptional. Mechant boeuf has just gained two more repeat customers.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely need to drop in and have the Mechant burger with the pulled pork poutine as a side!
Don't forget to try the artichoke dip to start off and pair your meal with a lovely Key lime cocktail!

We booked at just hours before
We booked at just hours before using "open table" and it was so easy! They had our reservation, no waiting but the restaurant filled up quickly for the first seating. LOVED the casual menu and chic atmosphere, our waitress was friendly but not really attentive, my husband had to go to the hostess station to ask for a steak knife, she never refilled our water, didn't offer a second round of drinks or wine and never checked on us after our meals were delivered, we could have used an extra plate, more napkins etc.. but we gave up on her a enjoyed the food, which was terrific ! we'd definitely go back if we were going to be in the neighbourhood but we'd hope for another waitress! Go- Have fun!

this was our second time here
this was our second time here as we enjoyed it very much the first time. The steaks and food were excellent and if you dont mind
some energetic loud music was a great spot to eat and have a few beverages. The only draw back was our table size, it was a postage stamp size for four men and their dinner and drinks... a little crowded, but we mamanged...
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot for the casual foodie
We popped in to this Brasserie when it was pouring outside. Happy we did too! The atmosphere is upscale casual, lots of modern red decor. The drinks are creative and delicious. Food was outstanding. The tar tars especially worth sampling. All in all an exceptional dining experience.
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant has great service, the food is good and it is very fun for a girls night out or with a large group. The music is a bit loud to talk, but if you want to have fun, it is a good place to go!
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went to Mechant Boeuf on friday night and had reservation for 4 at 9:30. We had such a good time. The waiter was really good, knew his stuff perfectly, answered all of our questions with patience. Some of my friends went there for the first time so he took the time to explain de menu. Service was quite fast, i took Tartar the bison and it was outstanding, my friend took oysters and trio the tartar and she said it was great. My other friend took the onion soup and she said it was the best she had. And my other friend took fries, they were good but lacked presentation.
Music was awsome with a mix of everything including 90-2000's music that bring us few years back.
Crowd is nice too
I will return for sure!

Fantastic Raw Bar
I've been here a few times and love the location, the food and the ambience. On this visit - we stayed away from the entree's and ordered a bunch of appetizers and shared tapas style. A great idea as there was much to choose from and everything ordered was fantastic. Particular mention for the crab cakes. Best choice of the night was the raw bar/oysters - only one choice for oysters- but left nothing wanting as they were just simply phenomenal. Round 1 at the beginning of the evening - so good we ended with Round 2 at the end of it. Also - kudos to the service staff - very busy night and still managed to make us feel comfortable and well taken care of. Bonus points to manager Charlene for taking extra care to make us feel at home.

A Nice Night Out
The atmosphere was on the dark side but cozy (comfy chairs) and the music volume was a bit louder than I would have expected (but the taste in music was solid- classic rock from the 70s-00s - so I didn't mind. There was also a duo of guitarists who played intermittently which added something. We sat towards the back of the restaurant by the wall fountain so we didn't have to awkwardly make eye contact. The food was quite good; the waiter was charming and helpful. Overall, the experience was in the B+ range.
Yes, we'd go back.
7/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
So far haven't been disapointed
Love the relaxed ambiance, had a great table by the window,. All four of us enjoyed our dishes, from the appetizers ( tartar trio, tempura shrimps and calmari - barely battered and crispy - delicious!) to our mail meals (burgers and ribs). Good wine selection as well and the service was really nice. Overall a great evening. Had been twice before, also ate very well each time but previously the music was to loud, last night was well gauged.

Great tapas collection,
The burgers nothing special, nice poutine.
Great service, nice music and environment.

Great food, good service, live music and nice atmosphere. A bit loud for my taste. I know they are known for their steak and raw seafood but I had the best vegetarian burger ever there!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food, would come again!
All the food was exceptional. Not especially pricey for the quality of the food. The food looks small portions when it arrives but in the end it was more than enough. We had oysters - FANTASTIC!! Beer was on special 6$ from 12$, i would not have paid 12$ for a pint! Service was really good. It looked like a really popular place. The music was really good (arcade fire, muse, oldies, coldplay, etc.) but a teensy bit loud, so we had to raise our voices to talk... that's the only negative thing. It's in a covered courtyard, which is really cool - you look up and see the sky! Anyway, I would go again for sure!

Went for my birthday dinner
Mathieu was our server and he was great. Very attentive and gave us a couple of suggestions. I had been here twice before which is why I wanted to come back. So far have never been dissappointed. Good food, good service, good music - I really love Mechant Boeuf and will keep coming back. Also, the reservation-making process was a breeze and even when we showed up 15 minutes late we were relieved to find our table still waiting for us. What relief since the place got packed in no time.

Good food & good music
Very good food, the burger is perfect. The service is good and the ambiance music excellent. You can also bring your kids, the staff very nice, no kids menu. If you like oysters, this is the place in Old Montreal.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must in Old Montreal
Service was great, good recommendations on the menu. The food was excellent and prices more then fair.
Relax atmosphere with live (singer / guitar) music playing some great tracks.
Complete the evening with a visit to the Neligan's roof top terrasse.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food in a great location
We went there at the recommendation of the receptionist at our hotel (Hotel Place d'Armes). She recommended it when I noted that I was interested in steak. The restaurant, while not inexpensive, was very reasonable for Old Montreal. I am very picky about my steak, and this one, a New York strip, was very tasty and prepared to perfection. The service was friendly and efficient. We chose wine from their list of wines by the glass, as my husband prefers white and I prefer red, and the Valpolicella I had was very good. I was a bit disappointed with the cheese mashed potatoes as I found them somewhat dry, but my husband was happy with them. The mixed vegetables were good. I really liked the decor and the ambience was superb.

My husband and I celebrated
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary. We had a great evening. The food and the service were excellent. Thank you for the great evening!

Great restaurant in a touristy area
Great ambiance. Music a bit loud for conversation but the lighting and decor make it intimate. The staff is extremely friendly and make you feel like a regular. I highly recommend the Gaspar beer made locally and the calamari for the appetizer. You can't go wrong with the skinny burger, thick triple AAA Angus patty with mushroom eggplant and cheese on a flat bun. A bit pricey at $18 but a it's a nice artisanal burger.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't like surprises !
The only minus I'd give would be to make sure that all your staff take the time to describe the special to your
clientele , after 3 visits to you delicious restaurant this September, I was inform of the 2$ special on BeauSoleil only ,only after receiving
my bill. Personally , I don't mind( my wallet either ) but some people might !
Faithfully your, Vaïena
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good. I am still craving for their porc charlevoix poutine!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lost some of its charm.
The food and music used to be better, but it was still a nice experience.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food GREAT Atmosphere
Went here for dinner with a friend. The food was good, however, not the best considering all the choices in Montreal. However, the live band (Choir Boys) rocked and made the night. The vibe to the restaurant is very cool and would certainly come here again.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Alec was incredible
We received such friendly and warm service from Alec. The food was great and everything was just perfect. Had a great night at Mechant Boeuf, will be back!

Yummy and filling
We went there for the first time , the food was spectacular and the service could not have been better, in fact I feel like I should've left a better tip

Outstanding service, great food, superb atmosphere (music, décor, etc). Great for groups or smaller parties for a nice lunch!

Vibrant place + great food/service!
I had the great privilege of being served by a waiter named Pierre Luc. He was so attentive to all our needs, he really made the evening very enjoyable. We started with a few appetizers, their chicken wings sound simple but they're excellent, also tried their onion soup and it was so tasty, huge as well. The steak was perfectly cooked, well aged and very very soft. Pierre Luc made some great recommendations for drinks as well, seems he knows around a bar. I highly recommend Mechant Boeuf, it's lots of fun, great service and very good food. Great value as well!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Belle sortie grâce au serveur !
Nous avions vu sur le menu web un Trio de Tartare (Boeuf, Bison et Saumon).
Rendu sur place, le menu à la table venait d'être modifié mais "on" a oublié de modifier le menu web et celui affiché à l'extérieur de l'établissement. Erreur de débutant !! Évidemment le Trio de Tartare avait disparu !
Shaun, notre charmant serveur, a réussi à nous obtenir ledit Trio malgré tout. Premier sauvetage d'un repas qui s'anonçait désastreux.
La liste des vins a une bonne variété, adéquate et ajustée au menu.
Notre serveur a vraiment racheté le tout avec un petit "trou normand" offert par la maison.
Le fameux Trio de Tartare était vraiment excellent. Pourquoi l'avoir retiré du menu ? Surtout qu'on offre les 3 tartares individuellement!?
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, but nothing too special. Reasonable prices on food but wine is very expensive. Live music was a nice touch. Not impressed with having T.V.'s in the space. (like hockey, but would have gone to a sports bar if I wanted to watch the game) Thought we were going to a fancier place!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Mechant Boef before and it is always great! The night I made reservations I was really craving steak and mashed potatoes and couldn't wait to get there. The only problem was, when we arrived, we found out they were celebrating their 6th year anniversary so they had a New Orleans theme going on and a special menu, which did not include steak or mashed potatoes. I ordered the ribs, which were fantastic, but I was disappointed that I was not advised when I made the reservation that there would be a limited menu. I guess that's what happens when you reserve online. I don't recall seeing anything advertised on their website either.
Everything was great, but I was disappointed I did not get to have a steak...
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only disappointments are the noise being to loud and the burger was dry. Other then that the service good and the drinks are good.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bar service was poor
I only gave three stars for service for the following reason - my date and I wanted to have a few drinks at the bar before being seated for supper. The bar staff were not attentive and we did not feel welcome. Our meal however was fantastic! This is a great place to get a steak. I had the Hanger Steak - perfection. My date also enjoyed the Striploin which was accompanied by yummy cheesy potatoes.

11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice for weekdays after work
A friend and I were tired of our usual watering hole and decided to give this place a try. It was Thursday night, the place was very busy, loud and the music was great. The drinks are strong and fairly priced for the Old Port. The food was okay, it was perfect to snack a bit before going home but nothing to write home about. All in all we liked our experience there and would definitely go back for a 5 a 7 type of evening.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
My friend recommended this place and I am glad he did because it was what I was looking for. The staff were very friendly the place is trendy. Great Music, Great Ambiance. The food was really good. I was told to try the raw bar especially their Tartars and Oysters maybe next time when I am there. I love the place and definitely will come back.
