Very pleasant experience. The meat and fish were delicious and the vegetables accompagning them original. The only thing I see which could have been better is my main meal: it came lukewarm so I had to hurry eating it.

Our family felt so comfortable! Not knowing what to expect we were worried the elevated menu and chic environment would be too stuffy for our teenage kids but it wasn’t at all! Alex was a perfect server very accommodating to speak English and entertaining! He accommodated every request and made our experience a ten! Best meat we’ve ever eaten!

Had been here about a year ago with my in laws and it was great. Our recent dinner was a total disappointment. Don’t bother with this restaurant; you can get a better steak at any French bistro without losing your hearing in Montreal.

Wonderful evening starting with the 5 @ 7, $1 oysters that were huge and succulent. Pair that with a delicious main course, the food was really prepared perfectly and mix that together with ouststanding service from our professional server Samantha that really made the whole experience so enjoyable. Thank-you

They would not cook a hamburger rare or medium even though it was grilled. Otherwise meal was OK. Odd wine list.

Nous avons réservé une table durant MTL à Table le dimanche 10 novembre. Arrivé à l'accueil, deux femmes étaient derrière nous mais la jeune femme à l'accueil a trouvé plus logique de s'adresser à ces dernières alors que nous étions DEVANT elles. Nous avons tenté de lui faire signe pour lui faire comprendre que nous étions là et surtout devant elles mais elle n'a pas réagit comme si nous étions in-vi-si-bles. Au final, très irrités nous avons fait savoir notre agacement et la jeune fille nous a simplement dit "oh je pensais que vous étiez ensemble". Très déçus de cet accueil où certains clients sont complétement ignorés, dommage car le repas était bon dans l'ensemble.

Oui pour l’ambiance et le service. Les plats servis, ce jour, pour l’événement auraient pu être plus généreux et savoureux. Ils semblaient être préparés d’avance car les purées dans les entrées et plats principaux avaient eu le temps de se dessécher.

On s’est trompé de plat principal même si nous étions la première table à commander à l’ouverture à 17:00. Le serveur nous a dit qu’on était chanceux pcq le steak servi était plus cher que celui que nous avions commandé. Je n’aime pas les steaks très épais de toute façon!
Le choix de vin suggéré était très bon mais la cuisine décevante.

My review
This was my First time at this restaurant and I loved it!!! 🥰

Appetizers: The beets salad and the shrimp croquettes were both full of flavours 😊

Main course : The sirloin beef was tender, juicy and once again full of flavour. The salmon was good but the side was not all that. Both portion were a good size. Worth the money!

Dessert: The blackcurrant was very sour.🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️ Had a very hard time eating it. However that choco caramel tartelettes was to die for 😍

Overall experience: Love the food but wasn't too impressed with the service. I will definitely good back!!!

Alex, our server, was wonderful. The oysters we had as an appetizer were exceptional and the rest of the meal followed the same pattern, perfectly prepared tuna and hanger steak with delicious accompaniments. The wines choices were excellent, and the chocolate nut dessert was amazing. Everything about our dining experience was a pleasure. You must not miss this comfortable and relaxing spot!

The food is amazing, service was fast and SO FRIENDLY! Alex was a great server and made the evening so much fun! The only apology that was needed was because the food came too fast... which is never a bad thing!! Our server even gave us a free shot to apologize... which was above and beyond!! It was fresh, so good and the portions were perfect for the price! The ambiance was also fun as it was after work on a friday... there were business crowds, tourists and even some young couples! Love everything about this place! Definitely a staple and go to for us!!!

Too loud for conversation, and the service was patchy. We ordered steak frites and a pasta dish, and they seem to have forgotten our order. After over an hour, my steak frites came and was just warm, and was sloppily plated (fries spread all over and the steak was sitting on them; I had to move it to cut it). The pasta was very good, however.

All in all, I would not go back to Mechant Boeuf Bar.

Ce n’est pas mon style de restaurant ni celui de mes amis. Non à cause de la nourriture, mais de l’ambiance: trop bruyant, lieu pour party. C’est parfait pour les personnes voulant célébrer un anniversaire ou un enterrement de vie de jeune fille, etc
Côté nourriture les frites sont trop salées, et j’ai été surprise de voir que les frites sont faites dans la même huile de friture que les calamars! Mon chum n’a donc pas pu prendre de frites avec son plat car il est allergique au poisson et fruits de mer. La viande était correct mais rien d’exceptionnel. Le dessert (tartelette chocolat caramel) était excellente!

Bonjour JuMontreal! Durant le week end, les soirées sont en effet plus animées!

Participer au Boozy brunch "Hommage à Céline Dion" se voulait un prélude, pour mes deux filles et moi, avant notre soirée au Centre Bell pour l'entendre chanter"LIVE", le samedi 5 octobre prochain.
Nous avons partagé nos 3 assiettes et pris le mimosa à volonté.
Mais après deux bouteilles consommées, nous avions assez bu.
Ce fut un moment pour nous trois de trinquer au privilège d'être ensemble et en mémoire de mon conjoint qui a mis fin lui-même à ses souffrances (atteint de la SP depuis plus de 15 ans) à défaut d'obtenir l'aide à mourir dans la dignité. Mes filles ont poursuivi pour lui le combat en invitant les gens à signer la pétition pour que soit modifiée la loi en ce sens.
La Cour supérieure s'apprête à revoir les critères d'admissibilité... On croise les doigts!🤞🏻

The maitre d didn't take our preference for a table (rather than a bar stool or high top table) when we made our reservation. This made things quite difficult for a member of our party with accessibility needs. The restaurant accommodated us, but it took over 20 minutes. While service was slow, our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was great.
