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.
Dinner: Tuesday - Thursday: 5:30PM - 9:00PM. Friday - Saturday: 5:30PM - 10:00PM. Sunday: 5:30PM - 8:30PM.
Again a wonderfuldinning experience. The food was excellent with a good selection for the 7 of us dinining. Alex H is a definite must!
The food is reliably good; service, although not always "polished" is friendly, helpful, and polite. The dishes are well presented and good value. The BYOB policy is a welcome addition to the already good value, and makes this upscale restaurant attractive as a more frequent venue.
They did not let us know they dont sell wine when we calles to make the reservation.
It took almost one hour for us to get our dinner served, thats a loooong time.
Excellent as always!
Great food, awesome service...great night!
Waited almost a hr. For food Food was good but on the cool side
we had a table for 5 and everything we tasted was really nice: gnocci, snails, flank steak, soups, deserts.
service was excellent aswell
We were not impressed by the food. Port reduction sauce was too sweet with undercooked flank steak, french fries were processed, frozen and spicy. I had a very thick chicken breast that was also undercooked. Not impressed with desserts either. Those who ate the snails were happy. We went to this restaurant last year and were not happy with the food either. We tried again this year, because we were going to a street fest on Belgrave. This restaurant will not be on my go-back list.
The food is excellent and this place is ideal for special occasions.
The best in town!
Great food and low noise levels. Service is always good and the bonus is one gets to bring your own wine.
Best resto experience we've had in a long time! Everything was on point, from the apps to the dessert. Gnocchi starter was excellent, veal absolutely outstanding, liver, shrimp/salmon pasta were awesome as well! Great birthday celebration!
Food is always very good and the service is excellant . The wait staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. Always love the liver and the escargots were really different and very good on my last visit. It is quite noisy when busy which seems to be a problem with many restaurants. Just put a soft art work on the walls to absorb the sound.
As always the food excellent, as always. The only drawback to the meal was the service. It was friendly and competent; unfortunately, it was very slow. The restaurant must have predicted a slower Wednesday evening because there was only one server on duty.
Food was outstanding that evening, everyone cleaned their plates. My salmon was fabulous,the liver was excellent and the pasta with shrimp and salmon was superb. Service was excellent even though there was a large group also there. Luckily we got our orders in before, otherwise we would have had a longer wait.
Service was somewhat slow but my company was great so it didn't matter much. Food was excellent and as a BYOB it made an excellent meal with a great bottle of wine very affordable.
wonderful celebration of our wedding anniversary with our family!
Very good service and food. The liver is always very good. Friendly atmosphere. Bring your own wine.
Always good with the expected quality food and presentation. I come to this restaurant for years, totally recommend it.
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 :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
IrenaG from NDG
Exquisite salmon with maple syrup reduction!!! Crème caramel was excellent
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.
This restaurant has been one of our favorites for years. It is very small and comfortable . The food has always been excellent.
Out of the way, limited menu, and fairly good food.
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".
Never disappoints. Our first choice for local get together with good friends.
Good selection of dishes and great that one can bring your own wine.
Good value and very good food. Also nice to be able to B.Y.O.B. Noisy, but good ambience.
The food is always fantastic and the service too. Love it here.
From start to finish by far the best dining experience I have ever received. The staff was attentive and quickly delivered on any request we made. The food was out of this world delicious and cooked to perfection!! Would definitely return and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic gourmet meal at an affordable price!!
Just a lovely little neiborhood place to enjoy a delicious dinner. i have been going there for over 10 years. i just keep going back when I want an authentic cuisine, simple yet so comforting.
Delicious dinner, enjoyed by all! Each of us ordered different things: duck, shrimp and calf's liver and we were each very satisfied. The service was excellent and the food delicious. We will definitely return.
We always love dining here.
It was out first time getting lunch here and the value for the food was outstanding.
