Ate breakfast here as part
Ate breakfast here as part of our stay at Auberge du Vieux-Port, and it did not disappoint. The service was very friendly, the food was tasty and reasonably-priced, and the atmosphere was awesome. Also had drinks the night before, and their house beer was excellent, while cocktails were relatively strong and full of flavor.

Good ambiance love the cosy
love the cosy atmosphere
salad wasnt that great, steak was ordered medium and came medium-rare. had to be sent back. the stuffed chicken was extremely oily and i believe that they forgot to stuff it! lol
the menu is good but the chef(s) has long way to go. decent for most average places in the greater montreal but for old montreal scene with all its foodie places and intense competition... for the price also, i would suggest for the chef to undergo some kind of training because menu is well put together. not for foodies at all
service was AMAZING!!!! eric was out of this world! great asset to establishment
i would still go back but just for perhaps drinks only

Great Tavern scene! Love the
Great Tavern scene! Love the decor and the ambiance. The noise level was just right!
Ribs were good!
Cod fritters were delicious!
Beef Tartare was ok!
Would definitely go back with friends!

It's the second time we go.
It's the second time we go. Both times in a group. The second time we got free shots which really made our night, and the bourbon BBQ burger was amazing. We'd go again.

YOU NEED TO TRY IT!
The restaurant was rustic, cosy and welcoming--we loved the modern tavern look. Our party of 11 had comfortable seating while enjoying conversation--the restaurant was full but not too loud that we couldn't hear each other. Drinks and appetizers were served with little wait. The waiter was kind to let us know how long until the main courses would be served. The oyster bar was fresh and did not disappoint. I shared with my bf the beef tartare and lobster rolls as appetizers: both delicious and fresh. As a main course, we had the pan seared scallops and the moroccan lamb shank: they were melt in your mouth amazing. And finally for dessert, we had the pudding chomeur and the molten chocolate cake: we practically licked our plates! YUMMY!!

Perfect more or less sums
Perfect more or less sums it up for a dinner for three with a friend from out of town.

I didn't realize until I got
I didn't realize until I got there that this is a hotel restaurant, but that's OK. It is attractive and well decorated, and it's right off the Old Port. I had the steak frites, which was delicious. Their house draft beer is tasty as well.

Possibly the best hamburger
Possibly the best hamburger at a sit-down restaurant (few do them well, not even the famous Mbrgr) in Montreal. Really exceptional.

I love this restaurant and always come back when in Montreal. Everything on the menu is delicious and love the service.

Great food and great service!
Can't recommend this place enough. Taverne Gaspar has all of the atmosphere of your favourite pub, but with fine dining-quality dishes. The staff was able to accommodate our group of 20, and even with several other parties present that evening, we did not wait too long between courses, and our dishes arrived together, not staggered as sometimes happens with large groups.
The lamb was especially fabulous - well-seasoned, and so tender.

Fantastic food, friendly service, lovely location.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went again this weekend and it didn't disappoint. Had the salad entree with steak-frites. Cooked exactly as requested. Tasty steak and great mustard sauce.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not a bad meal in Old Montreal
It was a nice place to go with some great beers on tap. The steak frites we good and cooked to my order. The sweet potato fries were good too. The truffle aioli with the house chips could have been a little more pronounced.

Had a great time. Staff was great. Beer cold, food was delicious. Actually ate there twice....
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome but ...
Drinks were great, service was impeccable and the food was good!
The only downer was the live band. I like live music just as much as the next girl but this was over the top loud.
I'll come back for sure, when the house band is off!

Great Old Montreal spot
In Montreal for the F1 weekend and this was a great start to 3 nights eating in Old Montreal. Really good soupe a l'oignon and steak frites - always my first meal when I make to Montreal! Good reasonable price wine list and great service.

Super soiree entre amies
Notre première sortie à la taverne Gaspar. Nous avons bien aimé l'experience. Tous les repas ont été apprécié et le service était vraiment super! Comme nous étions un lundi, le resto n'était pas très occupé donc l'ambiance un peu tranquille.
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
A good find
The cod fritters and homemade chips are delicious (only complaint, a little too greasy but the flavour outweighed that tiny issue) And the BBQ Bourbon Bacon Cheeseburger is in my top 3 favorite burgers ever.
Nice ambiance, decent service and great food. Definitely will go back.

It was very quiet on an otherwise
It was very quiet on an otherwise busy night in Old Montreal, so we were a bit worried when we stepped inside. However, the steaks were done to our liking and the service was polite and prompt. I've docked them one star on Ambience due to the eclectic mix of folk and country music being played which was neither relaxing nor upbeat.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
trendy local spot
Great find! Gastro-pub located in Auberge de Vieux-Montreal, great spot and ambiance...BBQ burger, lobster rolls, steak frites, mussels and lamb shank were all very good ! Would go back again with friends...
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
great service and wine list
the service was amazing!!! never had to look for waiter for hostess...
the wine list is good and reasonable (please not that the wine list on the website as it is different and the prices are completely different)
reserve early for upstairs terrace for fireworks or scenic view...
if you are on the healthy side, please indicate to hold on the oil/batter as the chef tends to over do it... although the ingredients are fresh.
overall very good.

We enjoyed the service here. Food was good and staff was accommodating

Wonderful spot in Vieux Montreal
If you are looking for a good spot to meet up with your colleagues after a long day at the convention center, this is just the place. The setting could not be better, in Old Montreal. The food was terrific - mussels, vegetarian sandwich, and steak were served at our table. The waitress was great, and patient with us as we were doing a lot of talking before dinner and took awhile to order. She graciously divided the check into 4 for us - most important for reimbursements.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice but noisy......
We like Taverne Gaspar as its a nice place to go in our neighbourhood, but if you want to have dinner & conversation with friends - the music is a little too loud. Food & service are good. And make sure to ask for a less claustrophobic table if at first they try to put you at an obscure tucked way in the back - corner table!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time and will keep coming
Great gastro pub.
Go there every time I'm in Montreal.
Mussles are awesome and their ribs are the best I've had.

Rock'n Roll dinner
Young staff and energetic feeling with live music. Several groups out dining and all in a good mood. Fast service and ok food. Not very romantic atmosphere wich can be relaxing as well. Perky eyes and bushy tail - way to go!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Taverne Gaspar is in a great location overlooking the port, it is vibrant and extremely popular. Their menu is not extensive but they pay special attention to what they offer. I had the scallops which were to die for, their raspberry margarita was the best margarita I have ever tried, the cucumber Collins was very refreshing. My youngest devoured the Mac and cheese which speaks for itself. The pulled pork was fantastic as were the mussels. The raspberry cheesecake was the best cheesecake I have ever eaten, it was made with fresh cheese which made it lighter and fluffier in texture than the dense varieties. We finished off with excellent cappacinos. This restaurant is nearby place Jacques Cartier in old Montreal.

Last days of Summer on the Terrace
A bunch of friends and I decided to celebrate the end of August and the very few Montreal summer days by enjoying a fantastic Old Port view on the Terrace. Posted pics on Facebook and already people want to be there! We all seemed to order the Lobster sliders which were great, as well as a delicious raspberry cheesecake that I split with a friend. Others ordered cocktails and pints of beer beforehand and I settled on a capuccino for the night, while the lighting in the city turned it into a romantic evening. Highly recommend the terrace for a waterfront view with good friends, good food and a wonderful ambience.

Great food, very quiet on a Tuesday
Had a great time reuniting with some friends. It was really quiet that night so most of the place was empty. I've been there before when it's packed though. Both times, had amazing food. Very recommended!!!
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
food was all around pretty
food was all around pretty good. the salmon tartar lacked a bit of flavor, the crab cakes were just ok (i've had better for cheaper) and the beausoleil oysters were a bit small but still very tasty.
the drink on the other hand were awesome! the only complaint is that the bloody caesar was missing clamato and had too much cucumber in it.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The place was jammin on a Saturday night. Great friendly and quick service, food was so tasty and comforting - you must try their ribs and the crab cake. Wow! Will definitely come back!

Manger au resto pour sa fête
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre souper. Les huîtres étaient excellentes quoique très petites. La nourriture était fraîche et les assiettes bien présentées. Notre serveur a été juste assez attentif, comme on les aime. Le resto est beau et l'ambiance très agréable. Nous recommanderions ce resto sans hésitation.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate outside due to the energetic crowd and music inside.
My ribs were amazing. My wife's Irish stew wAs very chewy and we sent back. The fish and chips replacement was very good.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had really rich tasting, fresh, and unique cocktails . They complimented our perfectly prepared and tender steak! Just a perfect meal. The atmosphere is great since it is in a part of the city that is very historical and next to the river.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Overall Experience
Our server Eric was extremely knowledgeable and a great assistance in making our selections. The food was absolutely fantastic and I will definitely dine there next time I am in town. Great value for the quality of food served. Only downside was that we were seated in front of the hostess stand and right beside the front door in a very dark corner.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Warm and vibrant setting
Food was delicious. The waiter was extremely friendly and accommodating to us, presenting the specials at lower prices and good wines to go with the food. The food came fast and hot, despite the jam packed restaurant. I made a special request to have a window seat and they gave us a perfect window seat romantic corner to enjoy the meal.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The environment was cosy, the temperature of the restaurant was good, and the food was really tasty. The food was really tasty and the noise level was good. Overall very nice dinner! The only almost downside is that they tried to seat us at the door (literally) underneath the coat rack. When we asked to sit somewhere, they brought us to the back which was much nicer.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was my first time and I
It was my first time and I loved the ambiance. The lady who served us was excellent in answering out questions. We offered to have desert at the bar because they were expecting a very large group and were a little rushed to set up. They did not say a word to rush us or make us feel pressured to finish our meal in anyway but when we offered they were so grateful. We had dinner in the lounge of the auberge which was super comfy and quaint right beside the wince cellar and facing the port it was quite peaceful. The cheesecake with fig Coulis was absolutely to die for!!! I very much enjoyed and will be returning without a doubt!!

Great Weeknight Spot
Looking for somewhere to go in Old Montreal with ambiance, good service and good food? This is the place. Conveniently located, seems to be popular with the locals and the staff our friendly and welcoming. The food was great as was the service and the neighborhood can't be beat.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great night! Good service, delicious food and drink, not pretentious. Very good place for a group or a birthday. I recommend te ribs and a group of flaming shots! Quite a show. Drinks are a little expensive and waitress mislead us about the wine. Was delicious but 20$ more expensive than she said it would be.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A nice discovery. The Wednesday
A nice discovery. The Wednesday night carnivore special, which includes a glass of wine, was lamb shank. One of the best I've ever had, flavourful and tender. The live music added to a wonderful evening. The place is lovely as well. We'll definitely go back but will avoid the tourist season as the location must draw a lot of them.
