Brasserie 701 Ratings and Reviews
Our first Happening Gourmand outing this year of 2018. Brasserie 701 was always on my try list for brunch. Somehow, my time never works out. Here we are for a dinner.
When I arrived I was greeted by a friendliest hostess. She took our jacket and inserted them in the closet. When we went in, I was mesmerized by the decor of this beautiful restaurant. We are seated at a nice table. We were super excited to order from the menu of the happening gourmand.
Our waiter Fred was very amiable. and helpful.
As my entree I got Sweet potato soup; oh my God it was wonderful. It was very creamy But light. It was really really delicious. As my main course, I got cod fish with delicious creamiest mashed potato. The fish was perfectly cooked. Then for dessert we got white cake with orange. Another beautiful and succulent creation.
I was impressed by the service, the restaurant, the food, the decor and the ambience.
I can't wait to come back again.
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.
We had a wonderful time in a gorgeous Venue.The waiter Julien was perfect , we dint feel rush or push. The meat was soso but the risotto...hummm delicious !
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...
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.
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.
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?
We were so glad we chose to eat at this restaurant! Deliciously exquisite food, ( try the scallop truffle risotto and Boston lettuce salad with blue cheese )wonderful presentation, generous portions, and great ambiance. Our waiter, Gavin, was exceptional and very helpful in providing recommendations for our weekend stay in Old Montreal.
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.
Tried the breakfast Poutine, rich but very good ( comfort food). But the strawberry scone was AMAZING!!! It's a must if you go, seriously. Really nice environment, if I lived in Montreal it would be a favorite! It's also in a great area of town, so beautiful.
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.
