Nous n'étions pas au courant qu'il y avait deux services et nous sommes sentis pris dans le temps. Toilettes malpropres. Rapport qualité prix discutable, mais ambiance formidable et présentation des plats excellente!

My friend and I are from out of town and saw this place had good reviews. It was incredible! Definitely recommend the flank steak and the salmon. Will be going back next time I’m in Montreal!

Visiting from US we found the restaurant through Trp Advisor. After a long day of airline travel went for an early dinner. It was a beautiful restaurant and the service and food was excellent. Highly recommend.

Excellent food including dessert. Did not find any appetizers appealing to me. Not fast service but otherwise very good service. Great views of the Notre Dame square.

Besides the couple sitting next to us who looked like they needed to get a room, it was nice. Love the birdcage chandeliers! Our waitress who was studying to be a therapist and learn Arabic was delightful.

Service to get our main course was very slow

Pancakes with ricotta arrived cold, hard, & inedible as if left on grill too long. No attempt to make right like offering to comp or something to eat while waiting for replacement dish - tablemates were finished when that replacement meal arrived. (My bad for not requesting some compensation for this but had to leave.) Requested salt and pepper never delivered and coffee, while delicious, wasn't refilled until requested. Poached eggs were perfect & mustard caviar was lovely. Can't recommend.

What a beautiful little brunch spot this was. The menu was excellent and offered something for everyone. I had the chicken and waffles, which was served with potatoes and fresh fruit. The fruit was amazing. I had also inquired about purchasing a single croissant and the staff was kind enough just to give me one. It was also lovely.

The service was okay, perhaps the girl that waited on us was a bit distracted. No worries her peers helped her out.

The ambiance was beautiful and I love the Gentleman’s Mimosa!

My dining experience began with me waiting 5 minutes in the front of the restaurant to be seated. I was then seated in at a table tucked in the corner of the restaurant and when I asked to be moved, it took almost 10 minutes. Once I placed my order, the food arrived promptly and tasked pretty good. Overall, the service was meh and the food was good but not all that memorable. I probably won’t return

à plusieurs reprises nous avons mangé à votre restaurant à l'heure du dîner...on a toujours l'impression que la serveuse n'y arrive pas...ce n'est pas surchargé, on dirait que c'est l'organisation qui tourne carré...

nous avons très bien mangé, tout est excellent.

C'était mon 2e repas à la Brasserie 701 et j'y retournerai certainement. J'aime beaucoup le décor simple e gracieux et romantique . Le service est très aimable et avenant. Les plats choisis étaient frais et délicieux. Les portions raisonnablement copieuses.
Que l'on soit en couple, en solo ou en groupe, un repas à la Brasserie 701 a tout pour en faire une expérience positive, voire mémorable.
Merci à toute l'équipe.

Great steak place in Old Montreal. Portions are smaller than in American steakhouses (this is not a bad thing!), so the baked potato was on the small side instead of the size of a basketball. Only mentioning this so you'll know to go ahead and order a few more sides! The porterhouse was well-prepared and the mashed potatoes were creamy and buttery. Yum. The spinach was garlicky and delicious too. Best of all: the PEI oysters! So good we ordered another half dozen. Nice wine and cocktail list. The service was good if a bit overwhelmed as the night went on. Overall, a very nice start to a lovely evening in Montreal!

When I booked the table, I had requested regular seating, but they placed us on the high chair table, because there is no other table available in the children-allowed area. Lucky that they let us change to another table which was almost leaving. Staff are very nice. Food is good.

Excellent food and location. One can see Notre Dame from the front door. 10 dollar valet with the hotel it is attached to. Staff is excellent and provide excellent service. The ambiance is quaint and when we went it was busy, but it still felt very intimate. Our server, Nadia was attentive but not overly so! I will eat here again if ever in Montreal

We had a very nice waiter. He made the evening most enjoyable. I had the flank steak and my friend the salmon. Both were more than above average as well as scrumptious dessert. I rejected my first wine offer and was provided a more appropriate pairing for my steak.

They didn’t even come to ask what we wanted to order until 1h30 later... the food was not even that great. I had the rigatoni with chicken, but it wasn’t even chicken. They didn’t ask if we wanted anything to drink. Overall, it was not a fun experience. Wouldn’t recommend.
