some clients tend to be louder than I thought, but that is not a big deal.
The food was excellent, service is perfect exept the waitress forgot to bring cream for my coffee after I asked for it.

The restaurant is just at the corner to the Notre Dame, beautiful lights and decors, well prepared plastic board for covid protection between tables. Waitress are helpful and friendly. Food is greatly laid out like art. I love my lobster tail risotto with squid source, yummy and elegant. We had foie gras and oysters for appetizers. Both of them are beautiful and tasty. Cream brûlée is creamy. In all, it’s a great dinner experience. Merci!

J'aimerais qu'on me pose les questions en français dans ce sondage. Serveur m'a offert un verre d'un vin a bulles plus cher car n'avait plus celui sur la carte. Très apprécié. 3 serveuses differentes et 1 serveur tout ca pour qu'on ne manque de rien! Je retournerai c'est certain. Eu une carte cadeau de 50 $ et j'ai invité mon fils. Merci beaucoup.

The menu is excellent, and the food is prepared well.
I have eaten there on a number of occasions and the biggest criticism I have is that it’s not consistent.

We were guests at the Hotel Place d’Armes for the weekend! The restaurant Brassiere 701 was inside the hotel, which was convenient to eat at without having to go outside in the cold weather. We had dinner twice at Brassiere. We ordered the flank steak, filet mignon, duck breast, 701 burger, and oysters - all of which tasted absolutely delicious!! Portion sizes were not too big or too small and everything was cooked well! We also ordered the vanilla crème brûlée for dessert, which was good! The ambience at the hotel is very pleasant and cozy - they played Christmas music all weekend! Additionally, we sat at the table next to the fireplace which added to the ambience. Even though we thoroughly enjoyed our food and experience at Brassiere, there are a few things I would like to point out. First, even as hotel guests, we couldn’t eat dinner at the restaurant without making a reservation in advance - there is no preference or exceptions made to hotel guests. Secondly, both times we went there were mistakes on our bill (for example, being additionally charged for food that was unavailable that night or we didn’t order). So i would make sure to thoroughly check the bill before paying as this happened twice in a row (this has never happened to me before at a restaurant in NYC). Lastly, the first night (Sunday), the service was amazing and all the food came on time. However, on Monday night, we waited 1.5 hours for just our oysters appetizer and over 2 hours for our main courses. We were told that service was slower, but waiting that long for food is unacceptable no matter the situation. Keep in mind timing if coming out for dinner during the busier holidays here!

Delicious! We had the parmesan salad, the most flavorful burger, and delectable duck breast. We ended with the vanilla bean creme brulee. Service was wonderful by our bartender from Lyon. Ambience perfect with warm lighting and hints of modern in an old building in Vieux Montreal near Notre Dame Basilica. This is a must visit when you are in town!

La nourriture était passable et parfois réchauffée au micro-ondes. A titre d’exemple, la mousseline qui accompagnait le filet mignon était compacte et fade au lieu d’être légère. Elle a sûrement été réchauffée. Pour une brasserie française, la musique beaucoup trop forte ne faisait jouer que des chansons de Noël américaine. Pourtant il y a de très belles chansons en français et dans les autres langues car Noel est une fête internationale. Dommage…

The place is elegant and the food is good, but what we like the most where the cocktails and the wine, they have a nice selection of white wines, which are my favorites. We order an antipasto to star and the selection of cheeses and the amount of the food on the table was sufficient for two persons. Afterward, we had our meal, a risotto with lobster and squid ink that was delicious and a filet mignon for my husband that based on his face was outstanding. The decoration was very nice and the counter at the bar seemed great, I just hoped we had more time to go again and just enjoy that part of the restaurant.

We were there for brunch. Food was great, server was excellent. Kitchen takes a while to get the food out. Be prepared to wait 30 or 45mins to get your food. I know good food take time, but just wish it was a little speedier.

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.
