Murs de pierres, plancher en bois, grandes baies vitrées, foyers, quelques mots qui résument parfaitement nos salles à manger et l'ambiance qui règne dans celles-ci. Sur trois étages, elles peuvent aussi bien accueillir soirées aux chandelles qu'événements familiaux ou privés.



Old stone walls, wood floors, large picture windows, cozy fireplaces; these are just some of the words that describe and evoke the warm and inviting atmosphere of our dining rooms. On three floors, they are as perfect for candlelight dinners as they are for family and private events.

    Nice Sunday brunch, lots of choices. Great service overall. The brunch is from 10am to 3pm, we were there around 1:30pm. My only negative point is that by 1:30pm, croissant and "viennoiseries" were dry and hard.

    Get a table by the front window and you can people watch the tourists going up and down St. Paul. Across the street from a t-shirt/souvenir shop so it's not a perfect view. Food and service was very good -- steak was cooked perfectly.

    The only reason I wouldn't recommend for steak is that Chicago prime steaks are so much better; but this restaurant in Old Montreal is very nice in most other food and decor and service.

    although my salmon was very good, my daughter's halibut was overcooked and dry. when we asked for tartar sauce (they didn't have) or anything else to deal with it, they brought her a sauce. They didn't offer to take it back and give her a properly cook halibut. I thought they should not have charged us for the sauce.

    This was second time in a week that we had dinner here. They have an early bird or late night special for $23.00 that provides soup or salad and an entree. We had the rib steak and it was cooked to perfection. Our server, Louis was very friendly and attentive. We look forward to our next trip to Montreal so we can enjoy another meal here. Thank you so much.

    We spent 4 days in Montreal and wanted to have a memorable dinner on our last evening. This location in Old Montreal was perfect, on a corner of a main street where we could watch the activities but still enjoy a very nice meal for dinner. Vieux-Port did not disappoint and we were pleased with the service and food.

    We had their table hote menu with a salad and a 12 oz rib steak for $23.00 after 9:30pm. The steak was perfectly cooked with mashed potatoes and green beans. Our server, Yavor, was extremely pleasant and did not rush us even though it was late and they close at 10pm on a week night. He made a good recommendation for some wine to enhance our dinner. The entire experience was wonderful. We will be back when we come back in town.

    Had high hopes. The place is beautiful. The ambience lovely. The food....... meh. I had halibut that was very dry. My guest had steak that was rubbery and the lobster overdone and cold. The bill was a shock. Almost $200 for the two of us for a sub par meal. Would not return.

    I personally had a great time. The good came out much quicker than we expected but that is always better than it taking longer than expected. I got the baseball cut and found it fantastic. Another person in our group got the filet mignon and was not as impressed as I was. Overall, a great place for dinner and a fantastic atmosphere!

    We were out in old Montreal on a busy Saturday summer evening. Restaurants were packed. I opened the Open Table app, saw the reviews, and booked the table for 10 minutes later. We walked in and were seated at a prime window table. Meanwhile walk-ins were put on a 90 minute wait list. The dinner was great, and the evening was saved. Thank you!

    I take my 2 girls here for dinner every summer after we spend the afternoon wandering the Old Port and streets of Montreal. We always go early and midweek to avoid the supper crowds and take a table on the terrace. The space is intimate and quiet and the chickadees and sparrows always stop by to play. The portions are generous so two orders of NY steak and salmon fill the 3 of us nicely. The sides of rice pilaf and garlic mash potatoes are especially flavourful. The service is formal but very kind and attentive. It is a special occasion for us to go to Vieux Port Steakhouse every summer - it tops the end of a perfect day wandering through Old Montreal.

    My wife & I booked the reservation based on online reviews & menu. What a fantastic evening! The service was topnotch, our food was great. I had a problem with my steak (over cooked, and not by a little), and it was replaced with very little wait and no question whatsoever. Our server was attentive but not over bearing, and the atmosphere was great. If the weather is good, I fully recommend the terrace as it was a beautiful evening and a great setting for a dinner for two!

  • Best Meal in 6 months

    Had steak and half lobster with lots of draught beer. This was the best meal I've had in 6 months, and I just returned from Europe (Berlin, Prague, and Paris)! Alberta beef perfectly cooked (actually sent first one back since it was slightly overcooked) and received new one in about 3 minutes with no issues by waiter. He looked at it and saw that it wasn't pink enough. Great, attentive service. Half lobster even had some liver so I got to enjoy one of my favorite delicacies. When I return to Montreal, this will be my first dinner reservation! Thanks to everyone!

    This restaurant was a great find on OpenTable. There were 5 dining 2 of which do not eat an protein other than seafood. The fish was very fresh. My portion could have been cooked a little more but it had great flavor. The portions were average. The area where the restaurant is located is perfect for walking and sight seeing.

    We looked forward to our visit but were disappointed. The restaurant seemed to seat non-Canadians in larger groups on the upper floor, and as a family of 5, we were surrounded by very large tables of US families, and a total lack of the intimate/Canadian atmosphere we were seeking. The service was inconsistent - the waitstaff seemed rushed and appeared to simply go through the motions. We had to ask for an extra chair at the round table to be removed, and to ask for water more than once. The waiter said that it wasn't his job and that the girl would be by; she didn't come by and we eventually we had to ask again. The restaurant is so large that it comes across as very impersonal and almost a cruise ship atmosphere. Food was just ok.

    I have to preface my comments by saying it was Canada Day, so they may have been short-staffed. Steak was excellent, though not the cut I ordered. Excellent ambiance and is located on Rue St. Paul in the middle of the Old Port. Had the Caesar salad, which was small and average. The service was very rushed, although not impolite. I would have ordered the mushroom sauce had our waiter not abruptly left when I ordered the dish. Wine by the carafe was extremely disappointing. I hate to say it, but you might want to order by the bottle so that you can see it opened. Neither my fiancee and I are experts, so this may just be poor quality or a bad bottle, but the Baron de Rothschild certainly tasted like it had been watered down.

    Took my family of 6 for the Sunday brunch. It was an amazing experience. We have ages 9 to 44 and all enjoyed the selection of goodies that were offered. The service was excellent and everyone was very polite and friendly. The food was very fresh and vibrant and tasted oh so good!!! At first I was abit hesitate to go with a price of 25$ a head, but once we arrived and I saw the array of food I knew it was well worth it. Thank you so much for the most enjoyable experience.

    The stars was aligned that afternoon.. great weather, super location (Old Port) and of course a good restaurant with great service. We had made reservation prior to our arrival for inside dinning but was able to change our sitting to the outside terrasse. Overall it was very good except the lobster tail (fisherman's platter) was minuscule and did not meet expectation. I will go back for sure.

    We went to this restaurant last year for dinner during out stay in Montreal for the Formula 1 Grand Prix and had a great dinner. Food was excellent. This years Grand Prix, not as good. Seems like they made some changes over the year and all 3 of us said the filet lost it's flavor and mine was undercooked. The garlic mashed potatoes were grainy instant like. The vegetable side (asparagus) was average. The service was good and wine selection was good as well. With all the restaurants in Old Montreal area, we will most likely not go back again.

    Our party of 4 dined on the Sunday of Formula One weekend, a slow night in Montreal. Vieux Port is a tourist trap. Only recommended for diners who have never enjoyed a fine steak in New York, Chicago or Texas. For all others steer clear. The Keg next door is a way better option. Water took 15 minutes and drinks 20. We waited for an ADDITIONAL 20 minutes before our appetizers made it to the table. When our entrees came the ribeye was gristle and not worth the $36. Mashed potatoes were delivered cold etc. The restaurant was 1/3 full but so was the management. Two adjacent tables were complaining and one left after requesting a manager. No "great" restaurant in a major N.American would let this happen. Skip it

    Went there on the Grand Prix Weekend as well, after the race on Sunday evening. The place was almost empty and I had made reservations which were not necessary. We had been there last year during the Grand Prix too and all the staff we enjoyed were no longer around. Wine list was good, however, did not have the wine we selected and when we did chose another white wine, we were informed that it was not chilled :(. We wanted a repeat of last year's excellent menu - the seafood platter. Nothing compared to last year. We waited over AN HOUR, got almost nothing, everything was cold and overcooked - even the $87 3-lb lobster we chose - in addition to the platter. Awful. Won't be back. We were robbed big time.
