We had a 10:30 pm reservation and though we enjoyed the experience it really seemed like the wait staff was trying to rush us through our meal. The petite filet needs to note that they wrap it with bacon. Not a huge fan of the pork taste infused with my beef. The mashed potatoes are not actually mashed but petite potatoes that are lightly smushed. The Brussel sprouts we great and the Oysters were top notch though they need to saltines upon request. Overall a very good meal and evening.

I was told that La Queue de Cheval was the best steak house in Montreal and I would have to agree. There are many great steakhouses in Montreal and I have been to many from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto to Las Vegas and this ranks as one of the best.

Service from Nickolas and the staff was attentive, but not overbearing and never an empty wine or water glass. Some great recommendations as for cuts of beef and sides to choose from and that would compliment our dinner and the chopping board idea of putting our different steaks sliced up so all of us could sample a variety of cuts was a spectacular idea.

They bring the beef to your table to show you the ones they will cook up for you and it looked amazing before it even hits the grill.

If you want to impress someone or taking business clients out and show your appreciation this is the perfect restaurant to bring them.

The location is close to the hotel we stayed at and the Bell Centre is walking distance as well as several parking lots nearby.

The restaurant is on three full levels and looks like a roof top patio in the summer.

This will be one of my new favorites in Montreal!

Thank you La Queue de Cheval.

Queue de Cheval is clearly the best place for a high end piece of steak. They have A5 as well as 60day aged steaks, only one other steakhouse in Montreal has that. The side for the steaks are amazing and well priced. Where this restaurant falls short is loud dance music, obnoxious staff that scream to each other and lack of refined service for a $90 steak restaurant.
The wine list was disappointing as well, a decent bottle is at least $200 so the mark up is over three times and they lack a mix of well priced along with the high end bottles.
Overall amazing steaks and sides, but you’ll pay over $400 for two people for an ok evening, not romantic and I wouldn’t have a business dinner there either. The only type of evening that works well would be a guys’ evening.

un vin vendu a la saq revendu a 3x le prix c'est un peu poche...($99 vs $300)
notre serveur était ultra sympathique et a été formidable avec ses suggestions.
points négatif ..: vins et plats trop dispendieux,petits pains froid,saveur de la puré pas a la hauteur du prix au menu ,aucun légumes fournis avec les plats a moins de demandé.
malgré tout c'est une expérience a vivre

I had stumbled upon Queue de Cheval many years ago, and was very impressed with the food and atmosphere. It quickly became my go to destination, when traveling to Montreal. I learned, during this past visit, that they had moved to a new location. While the experience was still very good, it was not quite the same as before. The restaurant seems smaller than it was. They didn't bring around the cart, with food selections, as before. It was quite empty (we did visit on a Monday). Overall a great restaurant, but missing some of the old charm.

Overly familiar waiter was actually intrusive. He inserted himself into a conversation that he thought was about the restaurant that was about a business in another city and was none of his business. He was overly pushy on his meal suggestions leading me to wonder if he knew something about inventory issues hat he wasn’t saying. The food was excellent as always. It is a top notch steakhouse. But this was my least favourite trip to the restaurant. I almost felt bullied by the end of the night.

Excellent food. Excellent service, although on this night, we felt a little lonely since it was a quiet night. However, we enjoyed our meal and the server described the food appropriately and helped to make recommendations catered to our requests.

The room is beautiful however the entire space smelled of cigars. Possibly a cigar lounge upstairs? If so it’s poorly ventilated. We had three different people serving us and none of them seemed to communicate well with the others. We were asked what we would like to drink before receiving menus. The music was VERY loud. The FOH manager had a sour look on his face the whole time and he could be heard cursing at the kitchen staff and his runners (open kitchen). We also heard our waiter curse while he was at the service station. We were sat right by the stairs even though there were plenty of open tables - we even made a reservation - so there was LOTS of foot traffic going by our table, including staff physically moving tables over our heads from upstairs to downstairs in the middle of dinner service. The food was really good - but a bit overpriced. I expect premium steaks to come at a high price tag, but I don’t feel we got value for our dollar. The whole experience was very weird. I wouldn’t go back.

Walked in and was it was with a warm welcome . Seated in the front and greeted by great server's. Met Pete and was also welcomed warm almost like family. Are meal was made perfect and outstanding . I would say that our dinner was not dull and food poor. Excellent through and through . Thanks Pete and the staff for the top notch service. We wish you a Merry Christmas from our house to you all. Thank Pelletiers from Windsor Ontario.

Too loud, wine was way overpriced and "conveniently" they didn't have the cheapest option on the wine list. There was a body hair on the tablecloth and servers kept bumping our chairs. The food was ok, the sea bass lacked flavor. I will not be returning.

I made the reservation two weeks in advance. Told them it was my wife's birthday. I was a bit disappointed that they chose a table next to the bathroom way in the back.
So even though food and service was good my expectations with the experience were a little disappointing.

En général ce fut une belle expérience. Par contre grosse déception concernant les verres d’eau, servis a partir de bouteilles d’eau à usage unique. Aussi, notre serveur et les autres autour n’avaient pas de monnaie pour une facture en argent contant, ce qui ne devrait pas arriver dans un restaurant, encore moins dans un endroit de cette envergure.

Food was not that great. We ordered several dishes and they were just bland. Waiter felt like a used cars sales man. He kept trying to oversell everything and we bought into it but then nothing lived up to the hype.

It was a very attractive restaurant, inside & out. The paintings and setup were absolutely spectacular. The hood design in the open kitchen was gorgeous and the paintings were the same.... Our service was great. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was good, but I've been more impressed with the prices charged. We would definitely recommend it though as it was trendy and a hot spot.

Worst dining experience I have ever had. The restaurant was dilapidated. The food was subpar and the service was non-existent. The waiter did not seem to care to pay any attention to our table and repeatedly made a point of telling us the price of every menu item, assuming that we could not afford it. Our table was in the middle of the bottom floor, it was crowded. Waiters kept knocking into our chairs which made even attempting to eat or drink impossible without spilling everything all over yourself. Management was worse. I expressed our frustrations and was quickly dismissed.
