Jambon par excellence !!,
Great place to have a few glasses of wine and amazing charcuterie. The sharing charcuterie plates are fabulous. The decor is modern with different seating arrangements. The brunch is wonderful as well . Lots of choice and reasonably priced. I highly recommend Hambar.

Encore et encore!
C'est toujours aussi excellent, et le service est vraiment bien, chaleureux. Leur sélection de vin et de charcuteries ne cessent d'impressionner. Essayez leur Pata Negra! Un rare délice!

I've only been for brunch
I've only been for brunch and it's always great. The menu items are typical brunch with a twist and the service is among the best I've ever had in any Montreal restaurants!

So much fun!
This was my second visit and it was just as much fun as it was delicious! The cold cut appetizer (half or full) is simply divine. Also tried three Spanish wines and all three were really nice. Perfect duck, scallops, and ravioli dishes. Friendly and interesting service. Will definitely be going back.

Juste excellent !
Chaque plats depassait les attentes. Aucune déception possible (a part la facture qui peut monter assez rapidement).
Parfait pour une soirée romantique.

Great food, great service but...eh?
We enjoyed the food and service at Hambar but would not call the noise level "energetic" but simply "too loud." I was sitting directly across from my husband and we could not hear each other. The room is acoustically very bright and they were playing music that was not atmospheric but intrusive. If they can tone it down a little, I'd give it 5 stars all around.

Awesome Old Town restaurant
Hambar was recommended by a trend-spotter friend - she visited 2 nights in a row, sitting at a large communal table, and this did not disappoint. The restaurant is on the small side and is located inside the lobby of the Hotel St Paul, although not affiliated with it specifically. There is a small area of separate tables, a large communal high-top table (seating 24?), the bar, and a meat cutting area, wine room, and ham aging cabinet.
The food was very good, served by an awesome manager, Sebastien. We started with oysters, a bit disappointingly on the small side, but then improved with my 'small' charcuterie plate and 2 sides - fried rapini & brussel sprouts with prosciutto. A main course of short ribs was outstanding!

It was great
We were a group of 9 persons and we all loved our food, the décor, the friendly service, and the ambiance in general, everything was perfect.
The price is very good for what it is too.
That was one of the best brunches i ever had in my life,

This was our third time at the Hambar and we always enjoy it. The waitress was very polite and helpful. When I mentioned that
our son had a slight allergy to hazelnuts, she made sure to tell us that the chicken pâté may have some in it, as well as the chocolate
sauce which comes with the churro s. The food was delicious as always. I highly recommend the Hambar.

Fare out of the ordinaire!
We were a group of 12, with a very diversifed palate but I definitely recommend the board with charcuteries for starters. The environement is not too stuffy which is nice and yet the food is refined.

Started with the small charcuterie platter to share. Presentation was beautiful, lots of variety on this platter. The procuitto and cerano ham were delicious, the liver mousse was amazing (Not usually into that sort of thing) and the cheese was good but not much of it, focus was on the meat. Could live without the other stuff on there. There were some pickled veggies on there which were delicious. We ordered the gnocchi - very rich + delicious, salmon sashimi - super fresh and also delicious, and the Melanzane Salad which was nothing special. Would not order again. My husband ordered the filet mignon, LOVED it. Dessert we ordered the churros - was amazing.
Portions were a really good size.
We all rly enjoyed dinner and will def be back!

Great for informal business meet-up
If you have business visitors inbound, this is a great place to relax and impress after work hours.

Très bien pour le lunch!
J'y suis déjà allé il y a un bon moment mais je dois dire que je devrais y aller plus souvent. Tout était très bien, agréable, goûteux, bien fait.
J'y retourne plus souvent.

Great food and great service
I loved how the restaurant is flexible with allergies and intolerences. As soon as we sat down, the waitress asked us if anyone had allergies or were gluten intolerent. That shows that they really care about there costumers.
Ambiance was great. Not too loud despite te open space concept.
Great for groups.

Gotta love ham!
This place is really interesting. We got to try it during Taste Montreal with the special prix fixe menus and it was very good. Good food made really well. It made me want to come back to try all the charcuteries that they have to offer... The big hams hanging in the entrance are a sign that this place is something else!

Best salmon I've ever tasted
I really like their salmon. It's the best I've ever tasted! It is also a nice and trendy place. Their platter of meat is pretty original and tasty. Perfect for a group to share! But beware if you order the big platter of cheese : there is practically nothing on there, for 32$!
