Excellent food-creative combo actions. I ordered the Epic Burger and my husband had the Rocky Burger. Both were delicious. Great service too. Can't wait until our next visit!

Hands down the best burger I have ever eaten! We decided to split the shananagins burger (oh my goodness so amazing!) and the Mac and cheese (so good that the leftovers are in our hotel fridge and I can’t bring myself to throw them out). I will recommend o everyone I know travelling to Montreal!

The room was cozy, and you are pretty close to neighboring tables. The food was delicious, and quick to get to us after ordering. It was a little loud, but it didn't bother us.

We were visiting Montreal and saw a Groupon for the Burger Bar. We went on a Sunday night...it was still quite busy.
I had a burger, while my hubby had the smoked meat poutine. He said it was very good, as was my burger and salad. I had a Caesar and he had a strawberry milkshake; we enjoyed both.
Our waitress was a delight. I did not get her name, but during our conversation, she mentioned she was of Moroccan descent...if that helps to identify her.

Très bonne place où manger un burger , je le recommande chaudement! Je n'ai pas apprécié le fait que la serveuse revienne plusieurs fois pour prendre notre commande à peine arrivé à notre table : on avait l'impression de vouloir faire ça vite fait bien fait pour qu'on mange et parte rapidement.

Was a little disappointed, because my boyfriend's glass of water had lip marks on one side of it and when I took home the nachos and warmed them up the next day, I found a hair in it.

Food was great and the service was excellent. Our table was next to the speaker which was quite loud as it provided the music for the entire restaurant. We didn’t ask to be moved because the restaurant looked full, however, I learned later that there are tables upstairs as well. Had we asked, I am sure we could have been moved upstairs where it was quieter.

Although the food was good our service was horrible. Our waitress took our order and then unknown to us left sick. No other server came by asking to refresh our drinks or provide us a status on our order. After 40 minutes we asked what was going on as others seated after us were getting their orders and even then were only told that our order would take an additional 20 minutes! 60 minutes to cook 5 hamburgers wasn't what we expected as we saw many other patrons eating and leaving as we sat there waiting patiently.

When we got our food it was good but not worth the wait time or lack of service. Very disappointing.

Responded on January 2, 2019

Hello! Let me begin by telling you that December 30, 2018 was one of the worst days in Burger Bar Crescent's eight years of business. Poor scheduling in the kitchen and the dining room, coupled with deliveries delayed due to the holidays created a perfect storm resulting in our restaurant disappointing many clients that day. I will not dispute a word of your review; I will only invite you to someday give us another chance. If not, I understand and wish you only the best. Happy new year.

This place had a great atmosphere. It was cozy and inviting; just the perfect place to be with friends. The burgers were phenomenal! Both the Mushroom burger and Jack Daniel’s burger left us floored. The sweet potato fries and regular fries made it all even better. Our server was friendly and animated, and the food came out rather quickly. The prices were a bit steep for a burger and fries, especially the upgrade/add on charges (cheese, sweet potato fries etc). However, what you get is superb, so I would gladly go back again.

Regular cheese burger and poutine were great. Nothing distracting but a good home made burger. My wife had the vegetarian party in hers and is still talking about it 3 days later. Bacon mac and cheese was pretty awesome with some kind of sweet flavor, maybe maple, mixed in there. Coupled with beers and a milk shakes it was a good dinner. So many places to eat in this city but we'll likely come here again.
