I've been to Brasserie 701 for brunch before and enjoyed their food & service. Unfortunately my last dining experience there for New Year's Eve left me disappointed. It was a 5 course meal at 9pm ( I was given a choice between 6pm & 9pm) and I waited for 50 minutes for my 3 small appetizers. While the table next to mine was being served not only their appetizers but their 2nd course during those 50 minutes! The glass of wine that I ordered wasn't filled to the line on the glass and when I asked the waiter about it he thought that I had already drunk some. I informed him that I didn't and the tell-tale sign was that there was no lipstick mark on my glass. He returned with a bottle to top off my glass. The food was good but the portions were very small compared to their Sunday Brunch. I won't choose them for my next New Year's Eve dinner.

The DJ for the new year eve did so good that we even dance in between tables...
Thanks for making that New Year Eve super plaisant...

At first I thought the food was just decent, but I found that the different items on the plate were best enjoyed in the same bite. For example, when I combined the duck, sauce, and quinoa from my meal into a single bite, it was very good.

My girlfriend and I had dinner at Brasserie 701 on Christmas. Finding a restaurant that was open on Christmas for dinner in Montreal was not easy, but I'm glad we made a reservation here.
The food was fantastic, and so were the service and ambiance. It is a bit pricey, but I'd say it's worth it for those special occasions - we'll be remembering this one for a long time.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner here on Christmas evening during our holiday visit to Montreal. Chef offered a special, fixed-price menu for the occasion and there were 3 delicious options for each course (appetizer and entree) plus a delicious dessert combo to finish the meal. All 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at this lovely restaurant. Service, ambiance, and food were all excellent.

Went there during our Christmas getaway trip to Montreal;
Good appetizer and entree for their Christmas fixed menu;
Could use more creativity for desserts though;
Overall very artistic but also cozy atmosphere.

Il y a trop de serveur qui venais me voir et changais ma chaise 2 fois , je pouvais pas manger en paix. Les serveurs et hotesse faisais juste jaser devant l’entrer aussi quand moi jai besoin de quelque chose. Le prix qu’on paye ca ne vaut pas la peine de revenir a moin que je laisse une autre chance. Jai payer 230$ et avec les pour boire donc 260$ . Honnetement quand je vais revenir c’est mieu d’etre parfait comme service.

Absolutely terrible!
I had a reservation at 10am for breakfast. I show up at 9.50am the doors are closed and locked!! Apparently it's held at the japanese restaurant located under the brasserie 701?? I wanted to eat with the ambiance of the brasserie 701 not a basement japanese restaurant?

Went on a date here during the MTL a Table food festival.

Appetizer portions were very small with average taste. The main course duck was a little over cooked and tough, but mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious. The desserts were well presented and tasted great.

The staff was not very friendly and they seemed quite stressed even though the restaurant was less than half full. There was a "hip and happening" ambiance.

Overall a fairly average experience, I would not go back. Spending $100 after tip for two people (without drinks), I expected more. This place is lacking heart and soul.

Great place except for one thing. I really do not need loud thumping dance music drowning out my conversation in a place that already has a fair bit of background noise due to its deserved popularity. Find a niche and stick with it please. Otherwise, good food, a beautiful building well-repurposed and good service. As I said one little thing does bring it down a notch.

I went to the Brasserie late after a show. The restaurant was open which was great in itself I enjoyed it and my food was excellent. What turned me off was the loud music. Not typical of a Brasserie. If it were not for the time of night, I would have dined elsewhere. I was in the mood for something else and for that reason it would not be high on my list to go back. But if you want a nice loud ambiance and good food it may suit your taste.
