Grinder restaurant is located on Notre-Dame street, in the heart of Griffintown. This neighborhood in the southwest of Montreal is dynamic and promising; residential and commercial projects are already underway.

The original decor screams Zébulon Perron (Furco, Buvette à Simone, Philemon). He created a comfortable and warm restaurant, kitchen and raw bar. Grinder characterizes itself by vintage and modern elements such as glass and metal.

On the menu, raw & cooked items: tartares, tatakis, ceviches, carpaccios, etc. Also on the menu, steaks and grilled or braised meats, all to be shared. Grinder also offers a variety of fish and seafood, served cooked or raw as well. More than a simple steakhouse, all food lovers will find something to their liking among our selection of fresh products.

100% of their wine list consists of privately imported wines, always changing with the seasons, and of course focusing on wines produced while respecting nature.

Nous avons été charmé par l'emplacement, le service à la clientèle très amicale et surtout par les employé(e)s plus beaux et belles les uns et les autres. Restaurant très branché. Cuisine authentique et créative mais surtout EXCELLENTE, GOÛTEUSE ET DÉLICIEUSE (tartares fabuleux, belles pièces de boeufs, salades impressionnantes, desserts divins et choix de digestifs à couper le souffle). La carte des vins est impressionnante et il y en a de tous les prix. Il y a aussi un choix impressionnant de vin au verre.

Nous y retournons dans une semaine car l'expérience vécue nous a coupé le soffle.

Merci à Benjamin et Jonathan.

We have a wonderful night but had some little "technical problem". They fried our scallop when it suppose to be serve cold but its still good. We just expect that the waiter tell us before we ask him. We choose a bottle that they didn't have it anymore and the waiter 2nd choice on the bottle was pretty good. They mess up with our side dish by giving us something that we didnt order but again it was still good. Overall i give 4star because of the waiter the service ambiance and the food.

Excellent calamari, best greek salad ever, the scallop appetizer was creative but little too cold to be able to savour all the wonderful flavours. They tasted better when they finally approached room temperture. Excellent service and ambiance.

Belle ambiance, un peu bruyant. Repas très bon, simple, bonne portion, belles saveurs. Service un peu lent pour un diner, mais pas à s'en plaindre. Je recommande ce resto.

Grinder has above average food, a lively vibe and would be great for a get together or special event with friends. It was too loud/busy and lacked intimacy for a date. Oddly the service was too good for us - food arrived so quickly that we had 3 courses and were out in under 1.5 hours... a whirlwind!
