Very delicious and fresh food!
Especially, the mushroom ravioli and risotto with lobster were heavenly to savour. Never tried them before, and by a stroke of luck we choosed them and were up to our expectations.
For desserts, the cheese cake with fruits coulis and grand manier syrup-soaked cake were rich and tasty.
The service was quick! Our orders were provided on time without long waits.
I would obviously go back and recommend the restaurant to a friend.

The food took a long time to come and wasn’t great ! We have been there for brunch, if you want an advice go somewhere else. It’s a great place for lunch and dinner but not that good for breakfast. It’s still a beautiful and calm restaurant tho ! Thanks

Visited on a friend’s recommendation and sat at the bar to speak with the bartender. Bartender was courteous, but didn’t introduce themselves or talk beyond taking our order. Cocktail menu is a bit limited, but the bottomless mimosa option was good for brunch with friends. Classic eggs Benedict was very good - tasty hollandaise sauce.

We were visiting Montreal, and started here for brunch! The food, and ambiance was amazing. Saturday brunch is the best. We ended up coming back later in the evening for creme brûlée and wine! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Very enjoyable !

Je suggère de couper le magret de canard pour que ce soit plus facile et agréable pour le client. Il était aussi un peu trop cuit. Sinon, c’était délicieux 😋

Merci beaucoup

Wonderful dining experience. Food & cocktails were fabulous—escargot, duck and creme brûlée will be in my dreams to come. Attentive but not intrusive service Jennyka was terrific! Can’t wait to return

The food was good and the waited nice, however the dis-organization and completely unapologetic lack of regard for timing and customer service spoiled our evening. Yes, food was nice, and waiter did his best, but it was hard to recover from not being attended to for 50 mins after our reservation time.

One of our favorite places to have supper when we take the time to go downtown.
On this occasion we were at the Centaur Theater for an afternoon Sunday show. What better way to complete the day then an enjoyable 5pm supper with Friends.

Food most of it was great. I had the chicken and waffle brunch. My chicken and sides were very good, just my waffle was cold and dry. But the service and the waitress was amazing! Lovely experience, definitely would go back for brunch !

I ordered the chicken waffles, I had eggs with my plate that I didn't know of, the waitress never asked me how I would like my eggs, the eggs came overheated with a plastic layer. The fried chicken was cold and the waffles were breaking apart. I've been here several time and never been disappointed with my food other then this time. I felt bad returning my food back. My food looked untouched to the point the waitress asked me if I wanted to take it to go. I have never been this disappointed coming here thank you

It was my 2nd time eating at Brasserie 701 in 3 weeks. First time, i was so impressed with my meal that i ordered the same this last weekend. I was so disapointed in my meal this time. They had chamged the foie gras appetizer tona point that it was almost inedible sith bad presentation and execution. The Salmon webt from wonderful to lackluster with next to no garnish compared to that first time. My friends were equaly unimpressed with theor steaks and risotto. The server was new and knew nothing. Made me feel bad that i had suggested we go there. It’s unfortunate that there is no consistency in the kitchen. Might be because they are short staffed because of covid, might be that it is a badly run restaurant. But i will not go again.

The food here was delicious, as were the beverages. I loved the location, the ambience, and the way the restaurant was decorated. We went at a very busy time, so the service was a little bit slower, but we were in no rush! Would definitely recommend :)

After a slow start when our waiter disappeared we were well cared for by another (senior) waiter and servers. Each course was delicious - escargots and salad - and lobster tail with squid ink risotto. All were superb. Wine selection is also excellent. Recommended for a very special evening with friends.

Breakfast was good and plentiful. A little slow on the coffee refills and getting bill at the end but very courteous and helpful. I suspect covid related.

Very nice and good restaurant!
An exemplary and very professional quality of service.
We waited longer than expected to be served (we hadn't even noticed) due to an error in the kitchen but the manager immediately apologized and offered us a glass of wine to wait.
A very good evening spent!
