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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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.
