Located in Old Montreal, between Griffintown and the Old Port, Jellyfish Montreal is a must when in the city. Ranked as one of the best restaurants in Old Montreal, Jellyfish is a reference for hotel-boutique concierges.
Amazing food and service. You can tell the ingredients are very fresh and they put a lot of effort into the cooking method and presentation
Where to start? We showed up for our reservation and they told us if we didn’t sit at the bar they had another seating later and we would be asked to leave early. Huh? What the heck is a reservation for then? Learned an hour later that they had a giant party taking over the restaurant. Well if you have a party, maybe you should let your other guests know that ahead of time? Food was solid but service was minimal, due in part to the big party that took over the restaurant but our server was a bit snippy even before that. My cocktails were good but pours were skimpy. We asked for our food to be served in a certain order and they paid no attention to our request. Goes to show that if your chef wins competitions, that may say something about your food but it doesn’t say you run your restaurant well.
Terribly disappointing. Would not return. Don’t recommend.
Amazing food and wine list. The service was great and I would recommend this restaurant to anybody.
Wonderful meal. The avocado carpaccio and tuna crudo were both incredible. Will definitely go back when I'm in Montreal.
Excellent experience very attentive service ... the waiter prepared the fish for us
Excellent food !
Great evening out, very well looked after with good advice on possible things to try from the menu, all worked really well
Magnifique resto , très stylisé avec une excellente bouffe . Service courtois et attentionné.
Très accueillant belle équipe et surtout bonne nourriture
The food was descent. The overall service was mediocre. I expected better service from this restaurant. When I ask the waiter for recommendation, he told us pretty much everything was good, which I find unhelpful.
Nice decor, great service, excellent food, highly recommend, will return for sure
Really nice place with great ambiance and service. The food was delicious. Menu could use a bit more variety and is very meaty, which won't fit everyone. They should include a vegetarian meal or two. Thats the only downside I found. The rest was superb.
Drinks were great but not impressed with food .... it was Cold / Luke-warm like is was sitting somewhere for a while....the ambiance was nice but...for the ratings that people give this place....it doesn’t live up for the merit.... unless they were fake reviews I wasn’t impressed there are far better places in the city....choose wisely
Our third time and it’s a charm! The staff, to a person, was professional, very personable and attentive. The owners kept an eye on guest and staff which is always a sign of a successful restaurant. The table d’hote was well planned and a good value. Try the charcoal filet....made to perfection.
My business partners were visiting from Shanghai, this was a great environment to spend a relaxing evening with them. We shared several dishes family style. My favourite was the whole snapper that was filleted table-side. My wife and I will return with some friends in the near future
I will go back with friends
The ambiance and decor is 10/10. Menu offers unique twists on common gourmet classics.
We had a wonderful dinner at Jellyfish. The service was very attentive and efficient (even though he did forget to order 2 dishes from our initial order). The ambiance was cozy and relaxing. The food was delicious.
Excellent Hip hop- R&NB Music and Excellent food!
Favorite restaurant in Old Montreal. Staff is friendly and obliging. The barman is the best. Love the decor and the music. Food is delicious. A must-try!
Sublime food in an eclectic setting. served with grace and a smile. The food is authentic, fresh and delicious. Been back a few times including with a large group of 18 and they still delivered as promised...definitely one of the better spots in the city...
I’m speechless. It was that good.
Amazing food, staff super helpful and steer you in the right direction with food and wine. Highest recommendation!
This spot is beautifully decorated, a great ambience with a good selection of 80s music.
The staff are very attentive and took good care of us.
We loved everything we ate, the avocado carpaccio and the New York cut 12 ounces but especially fell in love with the bone marrow. Wish we had the steak and bonne marrow served in seperate courses as we are sharing and it got cold, the waitress suggested we have them together.
Good choices of wines, some offered were not on menu but we found the waitress was way to awkward pouring to the line, especially after serving 4 rounds.
Expensive place... But good.
Food was good.
The food was creative yet let the ingredients speak for themselves. The beets dish was outstanding! The sommelier is knowledgeable and the wine list full of surprises!
One of the best fusion food restaurants in Montreal. The oyster tacos, bao bun, tempura octopus and Tuna crudo are a must have.
It was our fist time at Jellyfish and it won’t be our last. The ambiance and decor were warm and pleasant. Everything we chose on the menu, from crudos to deserts, was a delicious well balanced mix of flavours. Would highly recommend this restaurant!
Food is always delicious! Variety for vegans, lots of choice. The wait staff very attentive and the host very engaging. I would highly recommend this place.
Great experience - outstanding food and attentive service. A must for visitors to Montreal!
The service was friendly and professional. The food was excellent. Will eat there again.
Great place for quality food and excellent service. Lively bar area. Atlantic cod was superb!
Beautiful place. Friendly service from the person behind the bar. Surprisingly calm for a Friday lunch. Salad was ok for starters, but beef tartare was average, too spicy and weirdly served in a soft bun, making the whole thing lacking in texture. I was told their beef tartare was amazing but this was not the same version. This newer version was simply not a good idea, in my opinion. The overall experience simply didn't convince me to go back again.
We had three wonderful dinners at this restaurant in the past year so I expected the same at lunch time.
However, it was a very disappointing and almost embarrassing experience, especially as I was treating a friend to a birthday lunch. The menu was limited, the portions very small, boring desert & high price.
We each had soup & Tuna Poke, 1 bottle of flat water, 1 cappuccino. No wine. Bill, incl. tip, over $80.00!
Thank you for taking time to share your experience on Open Table. I am sincerely sorry to read that this lunch has proved to be so disappointing and I wish to present our most humble apologies. The satisfaction of our customers is constantly at the center of our priorities and please believe that your comments have been reviewed by the team to focus our efforts on the points you have highlighted. Best regards
Il n,était pas ouvert et ils n'ont pas daigné m'avertir le client à la porte a constaté la fermeture et nous avons du rapidement trouvé un autre endroit
Octopus, avocado salad, pasta with short ribs,tuna crude all great
I had originally booked a table at another top rated restaurant, but after looking again at reviews I decided to book Jellyfish instead. So glad I made the switch! We were able to get bar seating for 2 early, had attentive service from the bartender Dominique and others. The food was absolutely fantastic, fresh and inventive combinations. It was very noisy by the time we left at 7:30 but I’d go again for the ambiance and the cuisine.
Merci au Chef Mathieu et à son équipe... quelle belle découverte nous avons faite grâce à Mathieu.... Nous avons déjà hâte à la prochaine occasion...
Excellent! This is definitely a place where the chefs are clearly inspired and the service staff care about their guests. The Sommelier was fantastic making the most accurate recommendation for our tastes and our meal
Please keep up the great work (and keep playing the old school tunes)
