    We had an awful experience at Brasserie 701. The service was the poorest I've ever experienced in a restaurant of any type. They were crowded, but clearly they did pay attention to providing any quality from long waits for any request to cold appetizers when they arrived. The waitress could only say she got a message about the cold appetizers that we waited over 30 minute to get. The manager reluctantly credited a few items. Save your money and find better food in Montreal.

    Honestly it’s so unfortunate that our service was this terrible on our last night of the Montreal Grand Prix. Our server was so cold- didn’t ask us how our food was or offer another cocktail after we finished our first rounds. He disappeared as soon as the food was dropped. Food was amazing. And then we waited as they cleared the table with no server in sight…no one offering dessert or asking how it was…finally after asking 2 other workers and the manager they told us our server gave our bill to the wrong table and that we’d have to wait even longer. I have been in the service industry for years so I get it, mistakes happen. But they didn’t make it right. No apologies from the server, no compensation for the crap service and wait… to top it all off, both washrooms had no toilet paper or paper towels, garbage all over the floor the entire time we were there. Was looking forward to this one, but it was our worst experience service wise in Montreal so far. Only thing that saved it was the food.

    It was F1 weekend and so keep this mind. The dinning room is beautiful and well laid out. Cocktails were outstanding. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful and delightful. Food was pretty good but we waited a long time for our mains and good was but on the cold side. Thankfully our waitress inquired and our food came out no long after. I truly believe it was likely do the number of guests on F1 weekend. Would have been a 5 star otherwise but will give this restaurant another try on a more regular weekend.

    I brought my family for Father’s Day. We all loved our starters which was tha carrots cream soup, charcuterie and gratinés Rockefeller oysters. For our entrees, the salmon tartare was just OK. Thé look of the risotto was odd! The ravioli was very good! Although the overall experience and the service was nice!!

    It was F1 weekend and one of the teams was staying in the hotel so I suspect staff had been pulled off the main floor and were working in the private dining rooms. Our waitress was lovely but worked off her feet - we cancelled the bottle of wine we had ordered because it was going to come while we were eating dessert. We liked the ambiance and dinner itself was very tasty. We'll go back

    Our server was excellent! Kind and funny. Another server gave our table a hard time after serving a group of girls additional bottomless mimosas and avoiding serving us after we inquired directly to him. He continued to avoid our table and was quite impolite despite being supposed to cover our servers tables (ours and the girls) while she was on a brief break. She came back and was very kind, everyone else seemed great except the one server.

    We were in no rush but hadn't planned on a three-hour stay at the restaurant. It took 30 minutes to get cocktails. And about thirty more minutes between courses. The wait staff was either overwhelmed or not up to the job. One of them said to the couple at the next table that there was a big party in a private room. If so, they should have had their own wait staff. They make a big point when you reserve that they only hold tables for 5 minutes--time seems only on their side! The food was generally good to very good, though the polenta with the very good duck was the consistency of overcooked mashed potatoes. This place came highly recommended on several websites. We won't be rushing back, but have eaten worse meals and had worse service elsewhere.

    Lieu magnifique mais trop bruyant ! On doit hurler pour se parler ! Service vraiment mauvais. On a attendu 1h avant- notre entree et 1h avant- de recevoir le plat et 35 min pour le dessert. Le service est très moyen pour le standing du restaurant. Aucune eau en arrivant. Tres peu de serveurs pour une salle comble. Les aperitifs avaient été oubliés donc Servis après l’entrée. Tres dommage La nourriture est excellente mais les raviolis ratés baignant Dana la crème. Fabuleux tartare et foie gras Dommage quand même car la facture montait à 350 dollars pour 4 personnes.

    I go there often but this time, service was very long i ordered a bottle of wine had to remind my server if the bottle is coming, cocktails took 30 mins to make. Even after ordering we didn't get our bread until almost an hour later while waiting for our food. I don't know if it's because this time we were sitting in the corner but this experience compared to the others was not right.
