Alex H was originally opened as “Gourmateque Restaurant” in 1982, located on St-Hubert street, it was already making headlines for it’s great food. Most notably the home made lasagna, still found on our menu on occasion. The man behind this was Alex himself.

Alex already had restaurant experience from some of Montreal’s greatest, such as, the Royal Embassy, Mother Martin, Grand Motor hotel, Elmridge country club, and the Ritz Carlton to name a few. Alex had decided he would want to offer the same fine dining experience at a more affordable rate.

Established in 1990, the original Alex H (on Monkland street) was family run for 10 years, until 2000, when it moved to Sherbrooke street where it is still found today.

Today a family trio runs the kitchen, Alex, his daughter Maria, and his son Edward. Every night they cook your meals with pride we hope you’ll take the chance to experience the pride and care that goes into making every dish at Alex H. Please BYO Liquor.

On y mange toujours bien et l’option «Apportez votre vin » est bien intéressante. On n’y va pas pour le décor mais pour le repas.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The menu is small but that is one of its strengths. We were amazed at the quality of the food and the reasonableness of the cost. It is a bring your own wine establishment which makes it all the more affordable and allows one to spend a bit extra on an entree and dessert without breaking the budget. We both had their "Magret de canard sauce à l'orange avec figues" for a main which included either a soup or salad. We chose soup which was a lovely borst. We also shared a wonderful entree made with lobster and two deserts which were delightful with coffee. The total cost including 25% tip was less than $120.00. We were very impressed.

Bit chaotic when we arrived. Had to wait for table. Thought they were understaffed. Food was fantastic. Well worth the slight inconvenience. Quite noisy for first hour.

Wonderful place. Food is very good and reasonably priced. BYOB policy is also highly attractive.

Nicely prepared and presented food. Only complaint was that the kitchen ran out of three dishes by 7:00 p.m.

Thank you OPENTABLE for my reservation. As always my friend and I have the most wonderful meal. We are regular clients and we love everything about ALEX H. The restaurant feels like you are in Paris (France) not too many frills and the menu is small. THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everything is delicious, service always impeccable. Tables set up with snow white tablecloths, real napkins etc.
I cannot praise ALEX H. enough for the delicious/inventive food.
BRAVO ALEX H. We live in the 'hood' so you can be assured we will be back for another awesome meal really soon.
Thanks again for the most wonderful meal last Friday evening :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Nothing special at all but for NDG that's what you get !! The restaurant was full and two waiters in total. A recipe for a disaster .
The food was decent but inconsistent . Doubt I'll go back as I can't appreciate BYOB since I don't drink wine .

Four of us got together for dinner and had an great meal with excellent service.
Two were from out of province and had not been to a bring your own wine restaurant before. They were very impressed.

We booked on Open Table and phoned later to request one of the window seats (I find these quieter and more comfortable). As we were a party of four, they gave us the larger of the two which was quite suitable. The menu at Alex H is relatively short and predictable which, if it suits your taste on a particular evening, works out very well. The food was excellent as was the service. The prices are very reasonable for a bring your own wine restaurant, so I would say excellent value. We go regularly and will continue.

Disappointing. We have had very good experiences in the past, Portions were much smaller. And my bavette was so tough and almost impossible to eat. Waitress made no attempt to accommodate my concern. She had assured me beforehand that the "bavette was very good".
