During our work trip to Montreal, we took a moderately sized group to Brassarie 701 for dinner. From start to finish, everything was outstanding. The service, the ambiance, the food & drinks; incredible. We actually cancelled a reservation at a different restaurant to go here for a second time!

First, our server, Gavin, was wonderful. He is a skilled waiter. We began with a delicious golden beet salad that might've been a bit easier to eat without tortilla strips. I'd suggest roasted pistachios instead since they are much easier to get into the mouth. My daughter loved her homemade pasta with roasted salmon. She said the fish was moist and very flavorful. I had a velvety navarin lamb that had each element cooked separately in a sous vide. It was fabulous. I hope to return to this gem when I'm next in Montreal.

We were "Out of towners" who picked it for a SPECIAL Easter Brunch with family.....
Restaurant was nice looking...had a nice table and service was excellent.
Food was very mediocre.... in fact barely luke warm and almost cold.... terrible for eggs and roasted potatoes etc etc... Desserts were excellent...
Noise level of the MUSIC was far more indicative of a late night bar scene when everyone already had a few drinks under their belts... ....then they wouldn't notice as they would be shouting to be heard.
But the music noise volumn was totally uncivilized for an Easter brunch where you wish to talk to the people you are with..
I would not recommend this establishment for an nice Easter Brunch with family and friends and I will never go back...

It took forever to have a server come and take our order for Easter brunch
After we ordered mimosas they came with what was on the menu for everyone Banana smoothy
I ordered the chicken waffle and my friend ordered the tourtiere
I asked for my egg to be turned over easy instead of sunny side
They charged me an extra dollar for this ?
The food was very late when I asked politely about the delay the waitress while polite said there is a lot of order of the same thing ..
No kidding there were only three choices on the menu to start with ?
I paid extra for coffee for an Easter brunch , regular coffee not espresso
The pastry table looked like it came out of Costco or the sales counter at a grocery store
Brownies , minicupcakes and sliced cantaloupe and honeydew
The music was getting louder and louder live Dj for an Easter brunch
The waitress was very dekayed to come with coffee and to remove the main plates
By the way what was with the croissant and butter and dash of jam?
The waffle dish also had a dash of syrup
Very disappointing brunch and no never again

Indulgent delight - from maple syrup drenched foie gras to fresh clams in blue cheese sauce, this place is a must visit in Montreal. Check out seasonal and regionally inspired cocktails and celebrate the best of Quebecois rich comfort food. Be sure to bring a big appetite!

Steak tartar for starter was excellent. Waiter offered fresh pepper that I accepted but he left and never returned with it. For mains, duck was under cooked and chewy. Salmon with pasta - salmon was excellent, some pasta was not cooked at all and stuck together in a bunch. You really don't expect this from this type of restaurant so it was disappointing. Manager took care of us by offering comp dessert which we declined and when we received the bill he had taken one of the main dishes off the bill. The Manager did an excellent job in handling it but honestly we just would never return or recommend because I think these are such basic cooking errors that should be detected at the pass.

Our waitress Jessica was fantastic. My boyfriend and I had never been there before so any questions we had she was able to answer. She was so nice and enjoyable to be around as well as extremely attentive. The food was out of this world and the view is great since it’s located right by the Notre Dame Basilica. Our drinks as well as our dessert was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. Next time we are in Montreal we will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

So the thing that bothered me the most was that they actually seated us in a different restaurant, but we still got the menu and food from Brasserie 701. I guess it is because the restaurant is part of the hotel, as such they consolidate seating in less popular times.

The food was good. I found the chicken in the Chicken and Waffles a tad bland, but otherwise it was good.

Overall, its a good place to go for breakfast/brunch since that is what we went for,

Great little spot on the edge of Old Montreal. We were looking for French cuisine but had a vegetarian among us, and this place offered something for everyone. Outstanding sea scallops with risotto -- highly recommend. Great wine list. Atmosphere was lively yet quiet enough for conversation. Service was attentive. The desserts sounded spectacular but we were too stuffed to try any.

I am so very happy with my experience at Brasserie 701! The bottomless mimosas bar, coupled with an incredibly attentive server, was a great way to ring in my partners 30th birthday. The portions were well sized and delicious. The cappuccino I ordered was so yummy. Sunday brunch has a live DJ so it's a vibrant, loud, and fun environment. The decor is a eye-pleasing combination of Old-Montreal meets 2018. Definitely would recommend!

Brasserie 701 was really fantastic. Took a group of 10 on a Friday evening with pretty short notice. Called and had to delay 30 minutes because our group was running late - no problem. Hostess was extremely accommodating. Waitress made excellent conversation and was very helpful. Food for 10 came out nearly simultaneously which is tough for most kitchens. For the price, with many drinks and bottles of wine, I honestly am not sure how you can do better for mid-tier dining.

Eccentric decor with incredible food service and drinks. My friends and I were in Montreal for the weekend and visited for brunch and were incredibly impressed. Although the drinks are a bit expensive they're well worth the cost . The food is the reason to come. The breakfast was rich, tasty, and a bargain for what we received. If you can , PLEASE try the bacon. It is probably the best Ive ever had. Over all a great time!

I have only been here for Brunch and it was good this time around but it was missing something - We went last year Jan 2017 and it was much better - it seems they cut some corners - the bartender on Saturday 2/17 was great, very friendly and informative even though he was busy he didn't miss a beat ! We will go back .

Went for brunch with my boyfriend. We ordered la Table D’Hote. For started they only had one option of a smoothie. It was full of bananas I am allergic. I asked if there was a different option and they said no. Then we ordered the maple syrup chicken and waffles. It came with sunny side-up eggs and when I asked if o could have scrambled instead, they said I had to pay extra. Food was ok. Nothing amazing and there was no maple syrup in the chicken or for the waffles. Then dessert was a super hard peanut butter cupcake, no other option either. Wasn’t good at all. Place is beautiful but attention to detail when it comes to service really needs improvement.
