Bobby was wonderful! Great service with a great sense of humor. Will be back
Sound system loud and choice of music - EDM - bizarre for formal dinner setting.
Best flank steak ever! Food was fabulous and the service was great
Beautiful space near the Notre Dame Basilica! Would go back for sure, but wish they had a lunch menu.
The food was outstanding. Sadly the service could not keep up.
We arrived a few minutes early, but they had our table ready. The food was mostly excellent. However, the escargot was only just fair. The service was great and the wine list had a great selection. There was a lively buzz in the atmosphere but you could still have a conversation without talking loud. Nothing was rushed. Dessert was slightly decadent (mmm). We had a marvelous time.
Service was excellent and staff was very friendly! Loved the atmosphere: not too quiet, not too loud. The soft lighting gave it an intimate but posh feel. Absolutely loved it, would recommend and return again!
Everything was wonderful. Our waitress Nadia was excellent at meeting our needs. The restaurant met all of our dietary restrictions with ease!
Delicious food and very helpful staff. Would go again.
Restaurant was very pretty. We were in the private dining room and it was very nice to have our own space. Service was good and accommodating for our constant requests for more mimosas.
Un très bon service et bonne bouffe comme toujours ! Nous avons toujours une très belle expérience au 701! Déjà hâte à ma prochaine visite.
First time there (lunch) and will surely return.
Lovely bistro re: decor. From the welcome to leaving, the staff took very good care of us without being intrusive. Delicious food, salmon tartare was divine. Nice wine list.
Thank you 701

First class service and great food!
Absolutely will be back for another visit. The service was beyond brilliant and made the evening so relaxed and fun. The Manager, served our table and helped with food and wine selections. They did not rush us, the food came up in pace with our evening, conversation and needs.
It was a last minute choice and so pleased that we went. I will bring back more friends and family to enjoy the food, location and most of all the service.
Excellent place for a girls reunion.
The service was very slow. It took a long time to get our meals and then a long time to get our cheques.
Everything that we expected, unbelievably delicious food and all servers were bilingual which was very helpful because we were not French. Server was great and catered to all our needs very well. Very pleased with this restaurant and would highly recommend and go back.
Beautiful place with very friendly stuff. Close to all touristic attractions
tres belle surprise! Un peu pris à la derniere minute dans mon choix de restaurant je me suis tourné vers la brasserie 701 pour une soirée entre amis, et wow!
- Tres bon repas
- Service au top, on prend soin de nous, mais ils savent nous laisser l'espace et temps necessaire
- Le lieu est tres tres beau! Ca paye pas de mine de dehors, mais c'est super à l'interieur!
Le seul bemol serait que j'aurais apprecié des assiettes un peu plus fournies pour le prix (J'ai pris le saumon) Mais somme toute c'etait delicieux!
Super service de notre serveur Gavin!
Tous les plats que nous avons dégusté était extrêmement bon.
Had a lovely evening with friends, the food was good although the portion was quite small. We all had drinks as 'appero' I was completely surprised when i had to pay for a Kir Royal 27.00$. Between you and, it's mousseux with a dab of cassis, nothing more nothing less?! So, that being said, it's outrageous to pay such a price?! Ambiance was great, the staff was attentive.
Nous avons été servi par Laurence et nous avons été traité aux petits soins. Une magnifique soirée pour la fête des mères en famille.
Très belle soirée avec bouffe succulente et raffinée. Mention spéciale à Benoît pour l'accueil et son amabilité à nous présenter les services du restaurant et de l'hotel.
We went here for my birthday brunch with 8 of my friends. The atmosphere was great! I was worried it would be too quiet for my group of friends but it had a lively feeling, the building and restaurant itself was BEAUTIFUL.
Most of us did the bottomless mimosa option and the servers were very attentive and friendly. The food was also great. We all got different options on the menu and each option went above and beyond expectations for taste. Very happy with the choice to come here!
Excellent service, the food was incredible and it was a gorgeous space. Will definitely come back.
Very nice meal. Attentive servers. Food was above average. The lobster risotto was the highlight.
Hi, Thank you for the very nice comments. We definitely hope to see you soon. Have a great day, Benoit Maître D
The fillet mignon and lobster entrees were wonderful. The ambiance was wonderful. It was busy and perhaps they could use more wait staff.
Hi Kathy, Thank you for the nice comments. We hope to see you back soon. Have a great day, Benoit
I gave a 3 stars review to Brasserie 701, unfortunately this place was recommended by a friend of mine and did not meet my expectations.
Food was ok but nothing worth the price listed on menus, bavette was served cold and tartares were tasteless. Nonetheless, we asked for a table and got a tiny banquette space in front of a 30th surprised party.
The waitress was nice, but clearly overwhelmed with the birthday table and kind of forgot about us a couple of times. Definitely won’t recommend nor go back :-/
Hi Anne, I'm sorry to read that we didn't met your expectations. We are always looking to improve ourselves. So, if you want to give me more details about your experience, it would be very appreciated. Thank you and have a great day, Benoit Maître D firstname.lastname@example.org m
This is an attractive, cozy little spot in Old Montreal. The restaurant ambiance is lovely and warm, and the food was good --- not memorably good but satisfying. It did get extremely noisy, but so did every other cook restaurant that we sampled in Montreal. I recommend this place highly.
The restaurant has a gorgeous ambiance and it's lively but not noisy. I think the very high ceilings helps with noise control. Perfect place to go for a nice meal without breaking the bank. The flank steak was crazy good! Also, save room for dessert because the apple tarte tatin is def worth it.
Hi, We are glad to read that you had a good time with us for dinner. We hope to see you soon for some more Tarte Tatin :) Have a great day, Benoit Maître D
Wonderful meal. Wonderful service. Food quality outstanding. I had the lobster with asparagus risotto. Husband had the Filet Mignon. Desserts were also great. Would definitely go there again.

Un must pendant votre séjour à Montréal!
Two couples dining, excited for a great French meal in Montreal. The earliest we could get reservations was 8:15 pm, we took that as a sign they were busy and so were good. We ordered a cheese board and a bottle of wine. Then we were ignored after that. About an hour goes by and no food, a manager notices, comes to us and tells us he will comp desert. Goes and gets our food, which magically was done and ready. One had med rare steak, it was WELL done and no dressing on salad, Two had Lobster Risotto - barely enough Risotto to cover the bottom of bowls (I think they ran out.) Third had a salad - it was good. The manager came and saw how bad our meals came out and comped the whole dinner. We ask to split the check and he refused. That is why we gave three stars instead of one. Really disappointed because we were hoping for a great French dinner experience in a really nice restaurant and it was our first time in Montreal. We must have gone on a bad night for them. We were grateful for the apologies from the manager and that they took care of the bill. We didn't ask for that at all. The manager was very professional, don't know what happened between our waitress and the kitchen though that night.
The worst food and serving staff I have ever experienced in such a pretty room.
Room is beautiful, brunch was terrible, staff are appalling.
1 - We sat for a full 30 mins before anyone offered us water, coffee or even said anything.
2 - the young man who we eventually got to get us a drink seemed put out and irritated that we wanted to order something.
3 - he got the order wrong, missing a tea, we again had to go to the bar to correct the issue.
4 - we had to call a different waitress to order food. she was irritated too, we asked to clarify who our server was, so we are not calling different people. She declined to tell us, saying it was 'fine'.
5. We had to ask a third server for coffee and tea top ups, again having to walk to the bar to get any service at all.
6. The initial server came back to say he'd forgotton what we ordered. We ordered again.
7. The food arrived and was unbelievably bad, one dish was stone-cold, eggs and potatoes cold, toast cold. One dish was a Brioche which was both burnt and cold. One was a Fritata which was dry and tastelentss, burnt but edible.
8. We were now late for a flight so we ate what we could. Left the whole of the egg dish and the vast majority of the brioche.
9. on letting staff know they said they would 'let the chef know' - but took our lefover food away without apology, explanation or any attempt to correct things.
10. Had to again walk to the bar to get a coffe refull.
11. Left for 15/20 mins without any service, walked to the front to get the bill.
12. Was charged full price for everything. Raised the problem of the awful food which no-one ate to this 4th/5th server they said "oh that's too bad".
Never had such appalling service or received food so bad in a space that looks like you're about to have the meal of your life. Really terrible.
Recommend avoiding this place unless you want a coffee or something they can't possibly get wrong. ON the up side, it truly is a beautiful room.
We arrived very early and they very nicely accommodated us.
Hi Sarah, We are glad that you had a great time with us. We hope to see you back soon. Thank you and have a great day, Benoit Maître D
Le service par notre serveuse Jessica était incroyable. Elle était de bon conseil autant pour le vin que pour la nourriture. La nourriture était très bonne, les tartares et la bavette de bœuf.
Bonjour Vincent, Merci pour ces beaux commentaires concernant les plats et le service de Jessica. Nous espérons vous revoir bientôt. Bonne journée, Benoit Maître D
Service at times was spotty and slow. The Flank steak was over cooked. The lobster risotto was very good.
Over all it was ok but but the value was not there
While the food at the Easter brunch was delicious, the staff seemed unprepared. We sat for a long time with nothing but water. No coffee, our order not taken, the brunch's buffet not explained to us for at least 20 minutes. Additionally, every time our cups were empty we had to flag down our server for a coffee refill. Attention to details was extremely lacking.
Brasserie 701 is a beautiful restaurant. My sister’s duck dish was amazing, and my filet mignon was ok (not great, but not bad). The service was lovely and they checked up on us regularly.
We had a great time here. Service was excellent and food was great.
