Jellyfish Montreal proposes shareable dishes with asian influences. Its "Crudo + Charcoal" concept is the duality of raw foods and the charcoal grill. All is complimented the sommelier's wine list or the mixologist's cocktails!
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.

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.

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

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.

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!
Outrageous.

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.
