This meal was delicious, special (largely because of the one of a kind ambience), romantic...and very expensive. The meal was wonderful but the most expensive we had while in Montreal (and we ate at some wonderful places).

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.

I NEVER write reviews - but we were blown away. We went to some of the most incredible restaurants in Montreal - Le Bremner WAS UNREAL. Officially one of the best meals we've ever had - the ambience - the staff - utter perfection.

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.

Girls foodie trip weekend. We had heard great things about Le Bremner...what a let down! Dish of artic char with risotto looked like Spam in a sea of creamed corn. Fried chicken presentation reminded us of Chick-Fil-A...Sea bream was well prepared but painfully plain. Smoked sturgeon dip was delicious but the choice of potato chips as an accompaniment brought the dish down. Lobster with labneh was the highlight of our meal...Pancake dessert was just that pancakes...looked pretty but tasted like iHop.. Le Bummer!

When looking up where to eat in Old Montreal, Le Bremner kept coming up on multiple lists, so of course, I had to try it. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The room is dark and fun. Great music, wonderful service, and food that was nothing short of spectacular. I had the scallop appetizer, which was served raw and topped with crispy chicken skin. I think there was also some fish eggs and chives. Totally delicious, and one of the best dishes on this 11 day trip to Montreal. My wife had the scallops, which she loved. For mains, I went with local lobster risotto, and my wife had the hangar steak. Both were great, but I think the steak was just a bit better than the risotto. However, the risotto was cooked to perfection. Many places serve it clumpy and it isn't runny on the plate like it is in Italy. But the cook/chef at Le Bremner had the perect consistency. For dessert, we had the pancakes with maple butter. Just a perfect dish, and a great way to end the meal. We normally get a bottle of wine, but since we weren't ordering food that was compatible for the same wine, we each got our own glasses of wine. Also, a nice touch is that they serve sparking water gratis, which more restaurants should do, instead of charging an arm and a leg for a bottle of Aqua Panna. I believe they have their own soda-stream type machine, so the cost is minimal to the restaurant.

Love this place. There is such a great vibe from the minute you walk into this place. The staff has such great energy and you can tell they love working here. They are very passionate about the food and gave us great recommendations. The food was different and awesome. Also great drinks. Need reservations even for the bar which is where we sat. I would recommend the bar since you get to talk to the staff and really get a feel for this space. Music played is also great .
