The Beaver Club-Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Beaver Club Closed
    Unhappy
    Dined on 5/2/2014
    Drive from Philadelphia to Montreal to experience this restaurant after 46 years. We dined there on our honeymoon. Received your reminder two days before the reservation. We arrived to find out the restaurant had been closed for over a month. This was a huge disappointment and a significant expense. Not at all pleased with Open Table!

    The food is very good, the lobster bisque sensational, pricing rather good for the choice on le menu gourmand This restaurant is however for the much older generation, not trendy at all, and service not that great, seemed disorganized, would expect more from a high end restaurant like this, which has also existed for so long, Definitely needs a makeover

    Our dining experience was one we will remember for a long time. The friendliness of the staff, the attention to detail and the outstanding food and service were beyond compare. Staff went out of their way to make certain that our experience at the Beaver Club was as special an experience as the reason for the special night out. We felt spoiled by the staff and loved every moment of it.

  • Celebrated 40th Birthday
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/28/2013
    I chose this restaurant to celebrate my husband's 40th Birthday and it was the most enjoyable dining experiences we have ever had in Montreal. It was very private and the noise level was at a minimum. The food was beautifully presented. The Entrees/Starters were delicious. For the main course, my husband had a steak that was carved in front of him and he enjoyed every mouthful. The vegetables were beautifully cooked and seasoned. We had delicious savoury 'amuse bouche' between courses. There were a lovely selection desserts presented to our table. The service was excellent, they were friendly, courteous and attentive and there was no rushing. Parking arrangements were excellent. Next time we have something to celebrate, we'll be there.

    Went here for a special night with family. Ordered the 3 course price-fixed menu, and they gave us lots of extras along the way. Nice wine list with variety of prices. Each course was fantastic. The gentleman seating us and giving us beaver tail candy as we departed was especially gracious and charming.

    Dined on 10/25/2013
    After disappointing/unpleasant experiences in this hotel's other two restaurants, it was with some trepidation that we ventured into their most expensive venue. However we were pleasantly surprised to find very good food and good service. The only caveat was that the grand marnier souffles --while spectacular in appearance-- had a disappointing mushy/wet texture.

    Dined on 9/12/2013
    Nous avons adoré notre soirée au Beaver Club. Le personnel est tout simplement formidable. Très beau menu. Nous avons pris les 4 services et nous n'avons pas regretté notre choix. Tout était parfait, même si mon dessert (trio de crèmes brûlées) ne m'a pas charmée (drôle d'idée de mettre les crèmes brulées dans des coquilles d'oeufs). Mais pour le reste, on a vraiment été conquis. On nous offre mêmes des gourmandises à apporter à la maison à la fin du repas. Belle attention. Mon seul commentaire négatif : la musique. Faudrait vraiment y voir, car le soir où nous y étions, ça ressemblait à de la musique d'ascenseur. Un restaurant digne de ce nom, mériterait qu'on y voit. Pour le reste, que du bonheur !

On a respectez nos désirs,nos gouts, un service présent mais discret a la fois. Une cuisine impressionnante mais classique. Professionnel et sans bavure. Que dire d'un maitre d'hotel qui fait sentir sont amour du travaille. Merci a l'équipe.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and each of us had a different offering from the menu. No one was disappointed with their dinner.

    In a climate where many restaurants claim excellence but few deliver, The Beaver Club is a notable exception. This is truly one of the best restaurants in the country. The kitchen produces cuisine beyond compare and the staff is extremely capable when it comes to pairing wines with your course selections. The foie gras warm course and veal cutlet main course are exceptional. After the meal is complete, both your server and the maitre d' shake your hand- a much appreciated gesture which signifies the successful completion of an experience made possible through the cooperation of all parties.

  • Anniversary Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/20/2013
    We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary having been at the Beaver Club 50 years ago that evening. There was a large private party that detracted from our dinner due to the waiters always rushing to serve them and consequently we were overlooked and finally we had to contact the maitre'd to get our 2nd drink order. Also we were advised that the dress code was jacket and tie for gentlemen and this was not the case. 50% of the men diners did not comply to this rule. The food was good and presented very well. We did receive a complmentary celebratory dessert by the hostess who was very cordial.

    An exquisite dining experience if you love traditional setting and classic fine dining...prices are high but not incredibly high for that type of restaurant...pretty much what you would expect and worthwhile for the overall experience.

    Good food and good but initially very slow service. We waited over 20 minutes to be asked if we wanted a glass of wine to start the meal. The food plates were very good, not great and the wine menu is extensive if weighted to the expensive side. My wife chose two apps (both very good) and I have an app and a main which was very good too. We were delighted with the extra chocolate goodies at the end of the meal and the coffee with chocolate shavings and wiped cream was a real treat at meals end.

    My wife and I reserved this for a fancier night out on a recent visit, and it was all the guides said it would be-very good food, extremely helpful and professional service. This is not for everyday eating, but for special occasions, to my mind, primarily for the cost, but also for the more formal-but not stiff- atmosphere. I'm sure it's packed for Mother's Day, anniversaries and Valentines day- and for business dinners. One disappointing note: When the waiter asked as we sat down whether my wife would enjoy a glass of champagne to start and she agreed, I was taken back to discover the $25 it cost; high even for this venue.

    This is the best restaurant we've ever been to.The food is outstanding, but it's the service & attention to detail that makes this place our favorite. Some may say the service is "stuffy". Well I guess some people don't know what it takes to provide this type of service & ambience.To them I say..There's always McDonalds up the street.We started with Salmon Carpaccio excellent. Then Foi Gras,again just right. Richard had Sweetbreads & Quail, both just perfect. The Sweetbreads(with Prawn) were the best I ever tasted.I called ahead to order the Dover Sole(which you can do with 24hr.notice)Perfect in every way. Richard ordered the Bison Sirloin. Tender & absolutely fantastic.We ordered off the dessert cart & had coffee & tea.Perfect meal

    Dining here was like dining in some of the old grand restaurants - 21, the old Boston Ritz dining rooms etc. Great History!!! They have an outstanding bread basket and great petit fours - just like establishments used to provide!!!! The food was very good and the prix fixe menu is a bargain. I highly recommend the Bison Filet. The potato "sticks" served with all entrees were to die for - one of the best potato dishes around. For dessert do not miss the best baba au rum ever!!!! The wine list is interesting and very reasonable. Service is good - started great and than faded as the restaurant got busy - a great maitre 'd could remedy this and insure consistent service. This is a place to dine, relax and enjoy a special evening.

    We really enjoyed our dinner, food was great, price was great, and very important for us, the noise level was very low! the only snag was the free parking, we were not advised that there was nobody in the exit, so we had to pay the $20.00, we had our parking ticket validated when we paid the bill as we were informed to do. I sent copy of our receipt, am waiting for a response!

    Food and service exzceeded all expectations. We chose one hot entree and one cold; both were divine but I must admit the higher calorie hot entree had the edge. My spouse's halibut in fresh mushroom sauce defied description, with the creamy mushroom sauce perfectly complimenting the carefully cooked fish. My cold lobster salad had so much lobster that I could not eat all of it, and it was beautifully prepared and presented. Our nice waiter was not offended by our inability to speak or read French.
