    The ambience, professional and friendly service, the décor, the bar, all remind you of the best a French Brasserie can office. You can hear the music - including French classics - but it never interferes with conversation, which is how many people come to spend their lunch hour. The menu has some Brasserie staples but is more 'American' style, however, all of the food we tried was delicious and well-presented. The location is superb and only a five-minute walk from the Place d'Armes Métro station. Well worth the trip from our home on La Rive Sud.

    Let me begin by saying Michael was wonderful, as were the bottomless mimosas, and this was not the same as our experience last year. When we went in September 2021, it was wonderful - some of the best eggs Benedict we have had. This year the hollandaise was completely solid, the eggs were soft boiled and cold and the plates had hollandaise spilled all over them and wound up on our clothes despite trying to clean up the sides. If this has been our first experience, we wouldn’t have gone back. I hope this was just an off day since we really loved it the first time.

    Mediocre food, limited menu, relatively expensive given quality of food and service. Limited staff, long wait - even for stale bread and drinks. Steak was returned to kitchen - requested temperature of medium and it was served very rare twice. Not likely to return.

    Food was ok, decent, but not outstanding. And several of its signature dishes were not available on a relatively early dinner for Friday night, that was certainly disappointing.

    Alex at the Bar was fantastic. He make great cocktails and was very attentive. The less than 5 star review had nothing to do with him. It's because we waited a long time for our food to arrive, and then it ALL came at once. When it arrived it was all delicious, just wish it came out in courses that were well timed instead of all at once. Perhaps the kitchen was having an off day

    The food was tasty and good value for the money but the service was very slow. Our dessert was forgotten or taken by another server so it was about a 40 minute wait for the creme brûlée. They recognized their mistake and comped the dessert but I would have preferred to have the time back instead.

    Cela était ma troisième visite à la brasserie 701 en 3 ans. Cette fois-si j'ai été déçu de mon expérience (brunch)...je constate qu'ils ont modifié leur offre lors du brunch qui m'a laissé sur ma faim. Avant la covid-19, il proposait pour le brunch de miniature vinoiseries avec quels fruits avant le repas commandé....ce n'est plus cas. Mon plat était froid (oeuf bénédictine). Le lieu est toujours magnifique mais été moins propre au moment de notre visite (samedi). Cela sera ma dernière fois car il y a des restaurants qui proposent une offre plus intéressant pour le brunch que la Brasserie 701

    Brasserie 701Responded 3 days agoBonjour, Merci de prendre le temps de laisser un commentaire. Effectivement, nous avons modifié le menu du brunch suite au Covid. Cette dernière nous a beaucoup affecté sur tous les niveaux tel un manque de staff. Ce qui nous amène à modifier le menu pour faciliter la tâche à nos pâtissiers/cuisiniers sinon nous ne pourrons pas continuer. Nous nous accommodons au temps actuel du mieux que nous pouvons pour mieux vous répondre, tant au bien être de nos employés. Merci de votre compréhension!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Brasserie 701. It has a lovely atmosphere and we loved the decor. Our server, I think her name was Sophia, was lovely and very accomodating, as we had someone who was a bit difficult at our table. The food was very good; the only complaint my partner had was that the portion was a bit small on the mushroom ravioli. I had the burger and it was perfect, just the right size. I didn't feel completely stuffed by the time I was finished. Thanks for a lovely evening!

    A very pleasant and enjoyable dinner here for all five in our party. Staff was lovely and attentive. Menu offered a variety to suit us all (including vegetarians, meat eaters, and one dairy sensitive). Food was absolutely delicious, probably our favorite meal during our stay. We'd definitely return here when next in Montreal.

    There were an adequate number of servers, but they seemed more interested in talking with one another than in serving. We waited a long time before anyone came to our table. The server who came poured water into our glasses while talking with another server and did not even greet us. We reserved a relatively early time for dinner so we could have a standard table rather than a high table or eat at the bar. Regardless, the hostess tried to put us at a high table. We had noted that it was a special occasion (anniversary) on our reservation, but no one mentioned it. In the middle of our time there, our server was changed to someone else. Very disorganized. Food was good but the service really spoiled the meal

    Lorsque nous sommes arrivés nous avons eu la visite d'un serveur pour nous offrir de l'eau mais après 20 minutes j'ai du aller demander à quelqu'un de venir prendre notre commande car je crois qu'on nous avait oublié. Cependant la jeune fille qui nous a servis a été superbe toute au long de notre souper. Voyant qu'elle avait quelque peu de misère à parler français je lui parlait en anglais mais elle insistait pour parler en français ce qui est une belle marque de respect et très apprécié. Alors félicitations à elle pour son super service, je retournais avec plaisir chez vous juste pour son service.

    The restaurant is actually closed between 3PM and 5PM but the opening hours are not updated on the website or on opentable. There are different menus for lunch and dinner, so be careful, because if you once had something for dinner and you liked it, the same dish is different for lunch. Staff could be better, more welcoming, but instead they act as they don't care.

    Unfortunately not the best experience for us at this highly rated restaurant. The room and location is wonderful but the service was poor considering the prices. We had been caught in a torrential downpour on our way over and arrived soaking wet. We asked for some towels to dry off and to sit on so as not to soak the seats for diners arriving after us. Given that the Brasserie is in a hotel this should not have been difficult but it seemed to be. Thus, we sat soaking wet. Do not order the lobster tail risotto. At $45 it was a disappointment mostly due to the soupy black ink risotto that was poorly prepared, overly sloppy and generally flavourless. On a positive note, my partner had the salmon which was cooked perfectly.

    J’y étais pour le brunch, Très bel endroit. Le service est vraiment bien. J’ai été marqué par un serveur Samuel, tout le temps souriant , respectueux et disponible . La nourriture est bonne. Leur benedicte au saumon fumé est excellent par contre mes amis ont commandé le poulet gaufré et sur 3 plats , 2 étaient cramés et immangeables. A par ça tout était beau. Leurs desserts aussi sont très bon. J’y retournerai mais je ne prendrai pas le poulet gaufré 😂.

    I was a little disappointed in the restaurant. I ordered an item which wasn’t available and was only notified a half hour after I placed my order. My friends meal was ready and had to be placed under the hot place until my meal was ready. I have plenty of food intolerances and they weren’t willing to accommodate substitutions. I was so pumped to eat at this restaurant, and sadly did not have a great experience.
