C'était ma deuxième visite, tout comme la première fois j'ai bien apprécié l'accueil et surtout le fait qu'il est facile de converser entre convives. Le service était courtois, attentif et agréable.

Food/Seafood is overpriced and nothing special. Ambiance And Seating is Bizarre. Outdoor Dining Area Seemed Very Nice.

Hidden gem that is different from many restaurants in Montreal. The shuckers at the bar have a cool vibe and they interact with you. They didn’t have a problem explaining what each oyster was and their experiences. Even let us try a fresh meaty one with a dab of caviar on it. The decor is unreal, this is the aspect I loved. The bathrooms are amazing-yes huge bathroom fan, they will shock you. A must to try this place out. And yes this was the old Notkins

We were a group of 3 for Oystermania. The oysters were fantastic and the wine was quite good as well. The waitress even offered us a free shot because we were made to wait a little longer than usual for our oysters. Overall, a great experience.

Olivier made our first experience enjoyable, patient and informative. He was knowledgeable and hospitable, the food entertained my tastebuds, rich in flavour.

Will definitely come back and make sure you get a cappuccino in the end.

Arrived in Montreal from Miami, walked in with two children and was told they can’t have children because of some liquor licenses. Was advised to go across the street. Which was great advice because the food, service and wine list was amazing!!! Don’t know how the food is at BELON but across the street it’s great

L’élément majeur qui nous empêche d’y retourner est le bruit. Beaucoup trop bruillant pour nous. C’est dommage parce que le plateau du capitaine était génial et le personnel, très gentil. La carte des vins serait à étoffer. Merci !

Pour les fruits de mer à Montréal, un must! Les plateaux sont délicieux, parfait pour partager! L’ambiance est très bien, beaucoup d’intimité. Des huîtres en entré et en dessert, rien de plus rien de moins.

We had previously not kins on multiple occasions and enjoyed it immensely. It’s a rebranding does not seem to be as good. The service was disappointing and it seems one is no longer able to interact with the oyster Schuckers when one is sitting at the bar. The clam was barely warm. Our waitress didn’t know that much about oysters and most of the oysters had pieces of shell in them. Perhaps we hit them on an off day as previously this place was marvelous.

I am torn on this. I was in Montreal on business and had an evening to myself. I saw that Belon got good reviews for their food, and thought it would be good for the evening. I made a reservation on Open Table and arrived on time. I was told by the hostess that they no longer accepted reservations from Open Table and that they would not accept a reservation from one person in any case. She sat me at the bar, which I did not mind, but the service I received was exceptionally disinterested. My dinner took nearly 2-1/2 hours with lots of down time. I am used to that in Europe, but not normally in Canada. In any case, the seafood was excellent, especially the oysters, but the service was slow and the food, other than the seafood was not up to par in terms of temperature or flavor. If they wanted to make me understand that they feel that singletons (even those racking up $100+ checks, American $$$) are not worth their time, the were successful.

The decor was very nice and seafood was fresh however the main dishes are okay. Nothing to be wow about. My seafood risotto was a bit too salty for my liking and the clam bake also good.

Nous avons bien aimé notre première expérience à votre resto. Tout était frais et très bon. Cependant nous avons trouvé les vins beaucoup trop cher et l'entrée pour se rendre de la rue au resto inadéquat pour le style de resto. Sombre et pas joli du tout.

I have never had such bad service in my life. The drinks were not consumable and the waitress did not even care. My date had a whisky sour that was far too acidic and was hardly shaken. I asked the waitress what her favourite drink was (I think it had gin and prosseco in it) and I could not drink it. The prosecco was flat and it was too acidic. But she did not ask how they were even when we decided to leave without finishing the beverage. I had planned on ordering food but when I saw how little care went into making my drink, I decided against it

The raw oysters were stellar, the mussels and fries were just ok. I had many mussels that didn’t open so I couldn’t eat a good number of them. Their beer menu is just sad, they don’t know about food and beer pairing at all
