Had to ask for server to take drink order. Sat there for 15 mins. Waited for service thru the whole meal. Food was not exciting for a steakhouse. Ordered water and came at end of meal. Will not attend again.

Bonjour, Est-ce que je peux vous demander à partir de quel site ou application vous avez réussi à réserver? Je suis vraiment désolée que vous vous êtes déplacés pour rien. Tous les sites de réservations sont pourtant bien inaccessibles à faire une réservation les lundis et mardis depuis le début du mois d'août. Merci Christine Béland Directrice de la restauration

Clumsy waiter. Kept apologizing on every action as he was clearly inefficient.
Asked for medium, got medium rare..
Served with basic fries from a frozen bag probably.
Soggy red velvet as dessert.
And finally half empty 6.5$ shooters thanks to a clumsy waiter who offered paper towels instead of refills.

This restaurant was the best food experience we had in Montreal, and that's high praise because everything was great. We had the special cut 46oz. Tomahawk Chop done Rare + and it was literally the best steak experience we've had for decades.

The service is that perfect balance of attentive but not overbearing and the maitre de was gracious and accommodating.

We are already planning our next trip centred on this restaurant.

Le serveur semblait pressé à ce que l’on quitte… service froid. Nous n’avions même pas commencé l’apéro que notre repas était servi… Le service laissait croire que bous devions quitter rapidement pour qu’il y ait le plus de clients possible.

Mon conjoint s'est commandé un steak saignant avec patates pilées et asperge. Le steak etait bleu et froid. Une galette de beurre a l'ail dure sur le staek. Les patates et les asperges etaient froides. Mais le service A1. On lui a changé son assiette sans frais pour un autre repas. Notre serveur était présent et à l'écoute de l'allergie de mon conjoint.

Tomahawk steak délicieux et à point. Barmaids super agréables et font de délicieux cocktails.
Décor pourrait être revisité, c’est le seul point négatif…

Sinon parfait pour couple, ou souper entre collègues et amis…

Fausses publicité concernant les huitres à 1$, ils n’en font plus depuis le covid alors que sur leur site internet il est très bien indiqué. Le service était mauvais. La bouffe était mauvaise. Très déçu d’avoir fait 45 min de voiture et d’avoir payer un prix exorbitant pour quelque chose de médiocre.

Bonjour, Je suis vraiment désolée pour votre déception. Par contre, il est inscrit nul part sur le site web du Méchant Boeuf que nous avons des huîtres. Peut-être sur d'autres réseaux sociaux mais pas sur notre site. Malheureusement, dû au manque de main d'oeuvre, nous ne pouvons pas servir d'huîtres pour l'instant. J'espère quand même que vous reviendrez au Méchant Boeuf dans les futurs temps. merci Christine Béland Directrice de la restauration

Last time we came to this resto was pre-COVID and it was awesome. Food, service and ambiance with music was great.
This time service was not there…We had to ask for have plates in order to eat our apps. We did not have bread and had to ask for it. The drinks were watered down. Too loud. The ribs was dry and tasted as if it was precooked a while.

We were a bachelorette party that had a tight schedule for the evening. Our server, Nikolai, was great! Very attentive, nice, and put a rush on our food. He accommodated us very well and we ended up getting out of the restaurant on time. Would definitely dine out again!

I went to this restaurant on a recommendation and was told about Hugo who is a waiter, Hugo was not our waiter but he did come over to meet us and consistently checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed! This place has a great vibe, it is in a great location and the food was very good! Would highly recommend! Can’t wait for my next visit.

Appetisers were excellent but the main took very long to arrive and the fries were limp. The waiter was wonderful and he apologised for the delay, even said his manager was checking on the meal but overall it made the experience less enjoyable.

It was absolutely fantastic. Hugo was the best waiter and the food, the setting, and the desert were really good. I enjoyed the outing very much. The steak was something to marvel. I ordered a 12 ounce Rib Eye special and the 10 ounce New York steak. Both steaks were cooked EXACTLY as we wanted. I also want the mash potatoes :)

It was a pleasant experience and staff was wonderful:) The only disappointing factor was on the prix fix menu there was a sirloin option and we were advised that sirloin was not available for the prix fix and replacement was flank steak. There was option to change, however once we were decided on prix fix menu this unfortunately became a let down for the birthday man :) We celebrated my husbands milestone birthday while visiting Montreal.
Overall wonderful experience. The circumstances around restaurant business is noticing the price increases and lacking in quality at times.
The difficult times that we have been living makes it therefore difficult to say anything negative when staff is working so hard on getting back to some kind of normal.
