One is always apprehensive when going to a restaurant adjacent or belonging to a high-brow hotel. Not in this case. Great food at a decent price. Good wine list with a good selection of wine by the glass of with half bottles. That allowed my wife and I to sample two different wines for our appetizer and main course meal. We told our waiter that we had a concert at the Bell Centre at 8 p.m. and the service was quick without being rushed. All around great experience. We will return.

Absolutely phenomenal experience. We had Francis as our waiter who made it truly amazing. His knowledge on food, wine and the country of Canada brought true value to our experience. To add, the food was one of the best meals of our life. Can’t say enough about our date-night here!

Excellent service.
Went for $1 oyster night. I'm not very knowledgeable about oysters but these were a bit 'fishier' tasting than what I'm used to but still good. Accompanying sauce and horseradish were excellent. French fries were great but a little small.

Beau plateau de fruits de mer (mais la quantité et la qualité ont baissé depuis deux ans, ma précédente visite). Accueil froid d’une hôtesse mais très gentil et serviable serveur. Erreur sur le dessert en fin de repas... Malgré mes bons commentaires, le restaurant semble rendu en fin de course... c’est juste une impression.

Service très lent pour un samedi midi ou il n'y avait pas tant de monde que ça, rien que pour avoir un verre d'eau et qu'on prenne nos commandes ça a pris vraiment longtemps. Le petit déjeuner continental comprend une viennoiserie et de la confiture mais pas de pain?? on est sensé mettre la confiture dans la chocolatine? ou sur les fruits? Les assiettes sont arrivées froides et le rapport qualité/prix pour un brunch n'y est vraiment pas (32$ avant TIP pour des bénédictines classiques avec du saumon au lieu du jambon et un thé...). Je ne recommande vraiment pas pour un brunch mais peut-être que pour les plats et services du souper sont mieux? je l'espère !

Oeuf tournés et benedictines dures : Non coulant

Se faire servir des frites au lieu de patate déjeuner
La nourriture était tiède.
Il y avait a peine de sauce hollandaise sur les bénédictines....

Diner beware - we went on Tuesday for oysters, charcuterie and cheese platters. The food was off and we all got poisoned. The manager was completely rude. They have zero concern about poisoning their customers.

Great food, excellent service!
Had supper on a Sunday night in the dead of winter (Jan 13, 2019), so my appreciation of this restaurant might not be accurate. There were few people. It was cold outside with almost no one on the Streets of downtown Montréal.

Service was to a high standard. The food had flavour and enough originality and refinement to justify the price we paid.

My only deception was the selection in music, it seemed off and loud, but once again, there were only a few patrons on this quiet Sunday night, therefore not reflective of a typical night for this restaurant.

I will definitely return on a different night. Also, I've been told that their Sunday brunch is apparently quite good.

La nourriture qui se devait d’être servie chaude, était froide.
Le service était particulièrement lent. Par contre, les serveurs étaient gentils.
Il y avait peu de choix de desserts, mais ils étaient bons.
Cher si on tient compte de ces écarts.

We decided to stay in Montreal for New Years on a bit of a whim and looked at a few restaurants in the area downtown. We really didn’t know much about La Societe and relied for n open table reviews. We were not disappointed. It was a set menu for New Years Eve and it was very good.

Bonjour, bel endroit, décoration et local bien campé de style vielle Europe. Service avenant et de haute qualité.
Un bémol sur le repas: Salade grecque ratée: laitue en feuille non coupées, ingrédients parcimonieux, pas de câpres ni d'anchois, on à du retourner le plat pour que la laitue soit hachée et le tout touillé, finalement ne valait pas le prix (14$). Tartare de thon correct.

A majestic looking restaurant, with stained glass ceiling and with the Christmas decors; the warmth feel!

The service is friendly, caring and helpful. In their menu, there was no Benedict without meat, so our waitress suggested that they can make a plate and won't add the ham. I thought it was nice of her to make the suggestion.

Sadly, the food was not up to par as the beautiful looking restaurant and great service. The presentation of the food was not special. My friend got a mimosa but it full of pulp that drink itself.
My Florentine Benedict was too dry; the hollandaise sauce too thick and unflavored. Potatoes on the side were over cooked. The best part of my plate was my salad. It was tangy, but with sweet touch grape (sweet) made the whole world difference.
My friends bagel with lox and cream cheese plus capers and red onions was good. As me, she wasn't a fan of the side potatoes.

I was glad to try this restaurant, which was on my list.
