A word from Vieux-Port Steakhouse
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.

    Top-notch service and outstanding steaks and seafood in convenient/hot location in Old Montreal - just a block or so from the river. Steaks melted in your mouth - salmon was moist and flavored very well. Crème Brulee among the best we have ever had - and that includes Paris!

    Why go the the restaurant "Le vieux port" when you have the Keg just beside... • Ambiance: - Over loaded room. - Warm old Mtl - We were 4 people on a table that would normally fit 2 without being too big! • Service - Friendly in general - Server was pushing to sell ! - We have been served a bottle of wine of a different year than announced, because of "we cannot reprint the menu every time we are running out of a specific year!". When will servers understand the year count for almost as much as the domain! - Service standards were not respected for a restaurant of this price • Menu - Very limited choices. Not even the choice of side with the meat! •Food - Good in general. Meat cooking perfectly respected. - Mash potatoes was cold

    Most steak houses we frequent in the US don't serve any sides with the steak so we ordered extra sides PLUS our steak came with lots of sides, so we totally over ordered. Streaks were very good and we loved the people watching from the front window!

    The steak was not bad and the people working at vieux-port were really accommodating. We have a 2yr old child with a stroller and it wasn't a problem finding a highchair and storage for the stroller while we dine. There was a little mix up with my wife's order for her side dish but our server was quick to respond with a complimentary side of her liking. I wasn't too sure if it was due to high volume or our server but our food took a while to arrive. I noticed that another family under another server was seated right after us, took their orders and their food arrived 20min before ours did. I didn't want to make a stink about it but we felt a little left out. Overall it was a nice first time experience. We would definitely come back.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.
