Best service I've received in a long time! I would highly recommend this restaurant to a friend. The food is delicious. They made the steak Tartar right in frontn of me. It was truly a cool experience.

Bonjour,
-J'avais une réservation via le site web et wow très facile.
-Une de nos chaises était une chaise de bureau, pour un dîner d'affaire ou l'image compte, je n'ai pas compris???
-Peut être simplement revoir les croûtons servit à notre arrivé, un croûton dur et sec servie avec un petit bol avec a peine 0.5 cm d'huile, nous nous demandions comment se servir...
-J'y retourne assurément pour le service.

This is a great place for a casual dinner with friends or family where you can order a nice glass of wine and just sit and talk over dinner. No one is pressuring you to finish and leave. You don't have to hurry. Just relax and chat with your friends or family over a nice dinner.

A quality, predictable Montreal classic that continues to survive in the midst of trendy restaurant openings and closings. Excellent food and service, comfortable classic bistro surroundings.

Réveillon du nouvel an catastrophique avec de la musique d’un autre temps , pas d’ambiance , le monde est parti très vite après avoir avoir mangé
les prix sont exorbitants , bref on a passé une mauvaise soirée et on a payé trop cher en plus . Pour une cuisine même pas à la hauteur .
Je ne retournerai plus jamais dans ce resto , aucun point positif !

One of kind destination; French bistro ala Moulin Rouge. Over the top service in both French and English. But the food was disappointing, overpriced, and the bill came with a surprise, items whose prices are not posted. If you are tempted to go, skip the reservation, arrive unannounced and don't tell them you are American. Unless you like tourist traps.

Had enjoyed two wonderful meals last year when we visited and this was our first stop this year. Seated promptly when we arrived. Service was not rushed, but not ignored either. Attentive when needed, but no hovering over us. Cassoulet remains one of my favorites. Just as good this year as last year.

C'est toujours un plaisir de prendre un repas chez Alexandre et Fils mais surtout pendant "Mtl à la Table" ou lors d'un événement majeur qui se déroule dans la ville. C'est un restaurant avec une cuisine variée à choisir dans le menu. Les repas gastronomiques sont préparés par des professionnels avec élégance et goût. Impressionnant sélection de vins. Le personnel de service est très attentif aux besoins des clients. Excellent choix pour un bon repas.

Nous sommes allés chez Alexandre et fils dans le cadre de MTL à table. Le décor était chaleureux, typiquement parisien et le service très dynamique. Nous avons mangé un filet de chevreuil qui fondait littéralement dans la bouche ainsi que du homard qui était lui aussi excellent. La carte des vins ne servaient que des vins français mais les prix étaient raisonnables. Dans l'ensemble, nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre soirée.

On nous demande d’arriver pour 17:15 ce que nous faisons, À notre arrivée sommes 2 tables de 2 personnes. Les serveurs (3) arrivent vers 17:40 nous avions nos billets de cinéma Scotia pour 18:55 nous en avisons le personnel. Nous donnons notre commande 3 services a notre serveur et il confirme que nos choix sont compatibles avec notre heure prévue de notre départ....le premiers service est déjà prêt puisque froid, mais notre 2 choix tarde plus de 30 minutes wie notre serveur ne peut nous expliquer finalement nous lui rappelons notre heure de départ alors que notre serveur continue d’aller placer des gens à d’autres table Nous avons notre repas principal que nous mangeons rapidement puisque nous voulons goûter au dessert Il nous assure à nouveau que notre dessert sera prêt à temps.... nous quittons à 18:50 et voyons nos dessert sortir de la cuisine. Dans ces circonstances après coup nous avons pensé que plutôt que de nous bousculer et nous priver du 3 Ième service inclus dans Lebel menu “Montreal à table” ils auraient pu nous offrir de revenir après le cinéma pour notre dessert s’ils avaient des problèmes en cuisine. Dommage nous allions souvent à ce resto nous aimons sa cuisine ses vins et sa terrasse mais plus jamais lorsque nous sommes pressés

Tout simplement décevant ! La cuisine est bonne mais à 30$ le plat en moyenne on s'attend à beaucoup mieux par exemple une bavette servit avec des légumes, une sauce et non des frites et du ketchup, un tartare au couteau et non au hachoir assaisonné par le cuisinier et non la service. Tout ça pour dire que le rapport qualité prix n'est pas au rendez-vous, j'ai déjà payé ce tarif mais pour un gastro français et celui-ci le méritait amplement mais pas votre restaurant.

I have been to Alexander's many times so felt booking up for New Years Eve was low risk. Unfortunately it did not work well. We went with the fixed menu for the New Year Eve. We ordered canopes, appetizer, main course. Waited for ever. When it arrived it was the main course - no canopes, no appetizer !! When I pointed this out the food was whisked away. No explanation, no apology. Asked to see the manager whose only comment was "I will check" No apology, never saw him again. Food, when we did get it, was disappointing. Probably my last time here.

Interesting ambiance. Feels like you are in Paris when you get into the restaurant but the food and service are not up to Paris standards. A fun experience but not a place to go looking for a special meal. HOwever from the prices I expected something better. Not a great value but I had fun.

The food is very good but expensive. There are a few specials to choose from on the menu so you can save some money. There is no AC so it's very humid and muggy inside. The restaurant reminded me a lot of a steakhouse i went to in Paris, which is a good thing because it's meant to be a Parisian cafe. I was told the chocolate lava cake is amazing so I will be returning for that!

We went to Alexandre and Fils during the Grand Prix weekend and were surprised by how much they had increased the prices for the weekend, normally they are a very affordable down town restaurant. The meal was disappointing, the hanger steak and frites was exactly that with no other vegetable or dressing on the plate and the sauce was $6 extra.

We had a wonderful time. Everyone was both courteous and charming. People were nicely spaced out in the restaurant so we felt that we were in our own private little corner. The only critique we would have had is that the service was almost too quick! How often do you hear that? But it was just after the lunch crowd so perhaps the waiters were still on speed mode. I will definitely go back to this resto.

This restaurant was great. Service was good - they tolerated my inability to parlez francais. In addition to this I dined there on May 29th as Montreal was hit by a massive rain storm and the restaurant had some flooding. They carried on and continued to serve their clients with style and class.

Really slow service. Food was nice. Loved the environment. Servers were really nice when they offered a free drink/dessert upgrade for the delayed soup serving. Still wish they served food faster though.

Would recommend for drinks or special occasion if you have time to spare.
