This place deserves the hype!
My fiancé and I sat at the bar where we were taken care of by the wonderful duo of Edgar and Adriano ( total assets to this place with their personalities).
Food was absolutely amazing, drinks very satisfying, ambiance intimate, cozy and sexy all at the same time, service impeccable. This place exudes warmth, and the food exudes freshness and creativity. We feasted on homemade pagnatta, octopus, sea bream, risotto, clams and lemon tiramisu. Everything was fantastic!

A great experience! Our server, Thea, was fantastic, and the food and wine was delicious! Some of the best oysters ever, and the wine list was extensive and impressive. We will definitely be back and will recommend to friends!

We had an incredible experience at Le Bremner. From the food to the service, everything was perfect. We were late for our reservation, but they were very happy to accommodate us even though the kitchen was just about to close. They didnt make any fuss about it at all, and they didnt even make us rush our order in. The food was perfection. We had the albacore tuna sashimi with tahini which was delicious. We also had the octopus with baba ganoush, the trout which was cooked to absolute perfection, and the spaghetti squash which was a surprise favourite! Our waiter and the bar staff were incredible. It was definitely the best place to start off our Montreal trip.I don't have a bad thing to say.

it is the best resteraunt I've ever been too. everything was amazing. When Danny is super busy he still makes the time to greet you or come to your table to say hello. you know they care about the food and the customer. I wish Chuk and Danny would open a place in Ottawa. I'd be there all the time.
Thank you for such a great experience can't wait to come back.

This is a great restaurant, just like any of Mr. Hughes' restaurants.
Cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The dishes were savory even though the menu itself is not that creative. Nevertheless, you go for the food and for sure, the quality is there. In my humble opinion, I found the choices for the side dishes somewhat dull. The modern presentation was nice but lacked punch, it needs to achieve a more professional level if they really aim to stand out. The service was impeccable; friendly but respectful and payed attention to detail. The restaurant offers quite an interesting wine list that I really appreciated. All things considered, I loved it.

I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. The oysters were the best we had ever had! I had the lambs neck and it was amazing, I love to cook so when I go some where I want the food to wow me and it exceeded my expectations! Also originally the only seats I could make reservations for were at the bar, they contacted me that day to upgrade us to a table

Based on a recommendation, I visited Le Bremner for the first time. It was well worth it. The cocktail to kick things off was terrific and each serving of food was really excellent. The bar staff really made me feel welcome and were up for conversation. Top notch stuff all round and it's one of those places where you know you have to spend a little more than usual, but it's a level of service and quality that is very high and worth every penny. I reluctantly left but had a really great experience. Thank you Le Bremner.

I am not one to be critical and as much as I was really looking forward to my dinner at the Bremner, I was really disapointed. Even though our waitress was doing her best (I think she was the only server that night), the service was terrible. For the price they charge ($600 excl tip for 4), I would expect them to have at least enough staff to run the place proprely. For exemple, we waited a good 20 mins for the sommelier & received our sides 10 mins after we finished our main course.
I certainly hope this was an off night for them.
On the positive side, the food although small portion, was excellent.

This was our first time at the Bremner, and we had high expectations from all the great things we had heard about the food, atmosphere, etc. Needless to say, they didn’t disappoint! The food was AMAZING! We’re from away, but we will most definitely be back again very soon for more of their delicious food!

The service and ambiance were second to none. Was the perfect spot to take my wife for her birthday as the staff and the food truly make your visit memorable. Simple ingredients prepared in spectacular fashion partnered with great wines and a very special atmosphere. First time but certainly the last. 30 hours in Montreal this past weekend and Le Bremner was the highlight.

Great evening in Old Montreal with work colleagues for a post business Friday evening social event. Chose the chef's menu, the servings were random, covered the menu and an absolutely delicious taste experience! Sommelier knew his stuff too. Only small downside - third seating - at 11:00pm we were asked, politely, to vacate rather than hang around at the table to make way for the next group.
We'll be back again!

Food and service were outstanding. If the menu presented looks like it is all in French just turn it over. If you are not careful you can walk right by the entrance. Entrance is below the sidewalk level. Once inside you will find a delightful and welcoming space.

Oysters, Service, Ambiance and Drinks were outstanding. Unfortunately food wasn't up to reviews. We have suspicions that because we were there just before close that the head chefs had come off the line and the quality was affected. Could have spent all night at the bar w oysters/drinks. Next time we will do just that.
