Très bon restaurant avec du choix. Plusieurs plats n’étaient pas disponibles, alors que nous étions samedi soir. Les chaises sont basses et les tables sont hautes, donc ça peut être problématique pour manger. Bonne musique et bon service!

Our drinks at the bar were delicious and the bartender was lovely. Very friendly. Our waiter Hugo was wonderful and overall the service was excellent! Courteous, professional and engaging. Our food was very good but the plates were a like bare. Some bread on the table would have been nice. The ambience was also great! Love the exposed brick. We have already recommended you to friends! Ask for Hugo!

Waitress wasn’t on her game.. Took out order brought the food but my meat wasn’t cooked to how I asked but she had asked how the meal was before I had cut into it so I had to find her to correct it. She also forgot a side I ordered and I ask to ask for it. She didn’t fill my water till the end of my meal but luckily my bf didn’t drink his....

Slightly disappointed - we went for the 90s themed brunch and apart from music playing, there was not much else going on. My Turkish eggs were disappointing - 1 poached egg on top of a bunch of yogurt. My friend had the chicken and waffles and loved it though. Pretty good value if you decide to have all you can drink mimosas.

My husband and I are in town for business and wanted a nice place to eat. I like oysters so when I saw them on your menu I was intrigued. Our waiter Hugo did a great job of helping us decide which steak to share (the cuts are big!) and also which wine would pair the best with our supper. We had a fantastic meal and will be back again! Thanks for a great meal and having such a knowledgeable waiter, Hugo.

Nous sommes venues pour le Brunch des années 90. C'était bien mais on aurait aimé que la musique soit un peu plus forte puisqu'on l'entendait à peine. Ça aiderait aussi pour l'ambiance!
Sinon nous nous sommes bien amusées et nous avons hâte pour les années 2000!

Food was delicious but service was greatly lacking and the tables are so close together that I was constantly being bumped by servers or other patrons. Our water glasses sat empty the entire meal and no one checked in on our food after it was served. The food was excellent but it was disappointing service and ambience.

Great restaurant. The night we were there they had a DJ playing electronic techno wrap way too loud. The demographics in the room were 36 - 60 year olds, it’s too bad the management chooses to cater to the employees and not the paying customers. We would have stayed longer and had a couple more drinks, but the music kept getting louder and we couldn’t talk.

Fabulous happy hour. Buck a shuck oysters and $5 beer and $7. Wine.
There’s a DJ who played very cool music but not too loud. Our server, Hugo, was excellent. Very knowledgeable but also a really fun guy.
We didn’t try any other food but I would definitely go back for the juicy plump PEI oysters.

I had dinner here last Saturday night with my Wife as we spent the weekend in Old Montreal. The food and ambiance were excellent however the service was rather poor, we seemed to be passed on from waiter to waiter to waiter (did not make us feel very appreciated), we had to wait very long just to receive our drink order! We were extremely disappointed as we were really looking forward to trying this place out and the poor service took away from our overall experience at Mechant Boeuf. Unfortunately, I do not believe we will be back.

The service was outstanding - above and beyond my expectation - accommodating our needs, entertaining, and quite knowledgeable of the food and wine. The food was delicious, presentation was excellent, and contained a menu selection that was different than other restaurants in the downtown area. I definitely recommend Mechant Boeuf! I strongly recommend: the oysters, and calamari for appetizers; lobster rigatoni, and filet mignon with sauteed mushrooms for main; and, paired with a white wine for the seafood, and the 2015 Osoyoos Larose red wine mix with the filet mignon. I hope the experience is was wonderful for you as it was for me.

Overall, a really good experience. Waiter was great ... very accommodating to our limited French. Recommended the oysters and they were phenomenal... the mignonette was great.
All the meals were enjoyable but one recommendation would be to reduce the amount of salt on the steak ... it crossed the line between seasoned and salty.
Maybe specify that when you order.

I've been to Mechant Boeuf a few times and each time, I'm never disappointed. The ambiance is great and the food is amazing. I had ordered the beef short ribs and the meat was just melting off the bone, cooked to perfection. Also, we had reservations but we had to wait a bit for our table so they offered us a complimentary drink while we waited, which showed us they care, we really appreciated that. Also, love the fact that they have a dj that plays there.
