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.

Très beau décor mais il faut être jeune pour apprécier le bruit constant; si ne n'est pas la musique techno qu,on entend dans tous les restos branchés, c'est le bruit des autobus et autos qui cotoient directement la terrasse.
We went for lunch and it was way too hot. No breeze on the covered terrace and we were sweating like crazy. Too bad because the decor and the food are amazing!
What a wonderful surprise. Dined at the restaurant for lunch. The sushi sashimi melts in your mouth and the entree was just right. Will be back for dinner! :)
J'avais réservé. Je m'identifie en arrivant, on me fait poireauter 10 minutes... pour enfin me rediriger vers l'entrée principale. Il n'y avait toutefois pas encore beaucoup d'affluence à cette heure-là, soit 17h45. Hormis ce premier contact, j'ai beaucoup apprécié la fraicheur du tartare de saumon et la bonhomie des serveurs.
Was at Grinder for a business lunch and it was a great experience. The food was very good and the service excellent! And the noise level was less than during the evening so we could talk easily. Overall it was a positive experience.
Food is just okay
Great food ! Great service !
The food was not very good. They have “aligot” but it was more like mashed potatoes with some cheese baked in. The steaks had almost no flavor. I asked for medium rare, but it was rare. I could barely eat it cause it felt like I was eating raw meat for the most part. It came with beets and grapes which really didn’t complement the skirt steak. Skirt steak is really good so idk how you mess it up.
The food was good, we were expecting more for the price unfortunately. We got an overcooked meat but it was changed quite rapidly. Overall, the service was very good.
Delicious food, great vibe, and wonderful place! Highly recommended if you're in Montreal.
Excellent food, atmosphere, service. Cannot go wrong !
Hôtesse et serveurs désenchantée en entrant nous donne une table pour 2 mais ont été 3 très tasser. Bouffe froid et ordinaire.
Great restaurant. The only complaint is that there was no air conditioning & it was very uncomfortable during a heat wave with poor air quality warnings.
It's our second time at Grinder & it was another great experience. The food was delicious, cooked perfectly as requested. The waiter was really nice & very attentive. Really good overall experience so I don't mind the pricey tab. We will definitely go back.
Love the ambiance.. wine and good great.. oysters were outstanding but had tuna tartar and was very blend and small for price
Date night !
The tomahawk steak for 2 was delicious! Great service and ambiance
Sortie de couple
Great service great food ! Thank you !
One of the best nights out and fun dining experience. Terrific staff. Terrific food. Amazing service. Loved everything about this place.
We had a great meal. Our waitress was very helpful with picking out wines and giving recommendations on different items. Food was very good and we loved the atmosphere!
Très belle expérience par contre cuisson dés steak manquée !
Amazing steak, Mediterranean salad was delish. Server was attentive and recommended an amazing wine. Bar was packed. Definite hot spot.
The service was impeccable! The food was excellent and the ambiance was perfect. I would recommend 120%
It was excellent, they treated us so well, we’re going back
The food was fine (e.g., tartare, dry aged meat) but the place was extremely noisy. It was difficult to have a conversation due to the noise level.
Excellente expérience à Grinder. Un petit manque au service au début et vite rattrapé. Tous les employés étaient très sympas. La nourriture excellente. On a essayé plusieurs plats pour partager. On va y retourner c'est certain.
Obviously one of the best spot in Montreal I would recommend this place for sure.
Great Food, Great service. A bit too noisy for a business meal but all went fine.
Fun, lively atmosphere! Upscale restaurant with great food, wine, cocktails & super service. I think we had 3 waiters looking after us during our dinner. Great neighbourhood location too. Highly recommend.
Excellent food but the music was much too loud. Heavy bass.
Very professional hostess and service. Great ambience.
Great meal, awesome service.
Don't remember her name but we had the best waitress ever. Superb smile, awesome recommendations and service.
Thanks for the nice time.
The food was delicious but portions are too big. The cornish hen is enough for 2-3 people. Also, the waitress should have alerted us to the fact that the dish comes with potatoes so we would not have ordered them as the side dish. Very lively place but also very noisy - hard to carry a conversation across the table.
Plus un bar qu’un restaurant.
Le sandwich au homard etait tres épicé et ceci n'avait pas été souligné par le serveur.
Great ambiance......very good service........very good food. We ordered a medley of tartar for our appetizer, Beef, Duck, Salmon & Tuna.......all were very good. Most of us had the Filet for our entrée and all enjoyed it
I really love this restaurant, the food is excellent and great quality. I just went there for my brother’s birthday we were 6 people, only 5 people ordered meals. My only disappointment is you would think that after a bill of $635 they would at least offer complimentary shots especially since it was my brother’s birthday...that’s like general restaurant curtesy after a big bill has been racked up...
Belle atmosphères portions généreuse et excellente.
