Déçue d’avoir été contacté en fin PM pour avoir une confirmation de réservation et que si je ne rappèlais pas avant 18h, ma réservation était cancellée. Nous avons descendu de Québec, 3 couples, réservation pour 10 personnes... une chance que j’ai pris mon message sur ma boîte vocale. Et lorsque j’ai rappelé pour confirmer, on m’a dit que nous n’avions que deux heures vu que c’etait achalandé. Nous n’avons pas eu de menus suffisants pour commander, nous devions se prêter 2 menus pour 10 personnes... dommage !

Great food, great service but way too loud music, could barely have a conversation with the person next to me, nearly impossible to converse across the table. I’d recommend turning down the DJ. Otherwise we’d recommend this place highly. Service was prompt, attentive and friendly on a busy night of Montreal restaurant week.

L’entree de boudin était succulente mais le plat et le dessert étaient vraiment décevants. L’entree était de niveau gastronomique avec un mélange surprenant et original mais le plat était très ordinaire avec le dessert assez sec. Musique trop bruyante pour un brunch, plus les bébés qui crient partout dans la salle.

 (Raleigh)·Dined on November 10, 2017

After reading reviews of this restaurant that was within walking distance of our hotel, we thought we would give it a try. The place had a nice vibe with a DJ playing energizing music. It happened to be ‘restaurant week’ of some sort so the menu was somewhat limited but not a problem. For $31 you could have an appetizer, entree & dessert. You could also upgrade some items for an additional charge. We chose to upgrade the appetizer but ordered the other 2 from the basic offerings. My spouse ordered the pasta carbonara. It was horrible with chunks of scrabbled eggs and 2 slabs of undercooked bacon. She told the server that it was disgusting and he apologized saying that other customers have had the same response. He went on to say that it was “special”. He did not offer anything in exchange and we didn’t ask since it took quite awhile to get our food. Also, due to the event, we were told when we got there that we could only stay for 2 hours. The steak was good even thought it was over cooked when I ordered med-rare, but tasty. When the bill came, there was a charge of $49 for the steak. We questioned it and the waiter and later the manager said that we upgraded when we absolutely did not. They wouldn’t take off the bad pasta charge nor would they adjust the cost of the steak that we did not order. We were very disappointed that we got overcharged for a something we did not order and had to pay in full for something that was horrible quality.

New owners and menu since the last time I was there. I didn’t like the small print in the menu and found it hard to read with the low lighting. Food was good (no complaints). We were looking forward to the DJ they use to have but there was none. It was a cool touch before, too bad it didn’t continue.

This resto has gone up there in my tastiest meals! The menu is simple and each platter we ordered was beautiful and unique in taste! This whole experience was complete with the amazing dj, i believe his name is Alex, playing old school tunes that just fit perfectly! Bravo to all of team Méchant Boeuf!!!

Thanks to open table we were able to get a seat. We walked into the restaurant off the street and asked if there was a table for two available and the hostess said they were booked solid. As we were leaving I opened the open table app on my phone and there was a table available in 10 minutes, so I booked it, got my confirmations and went back in. I said to the same hostess, I have a reservation now, and she confirmed it and led us to our seat. Thanks Open Table! The food was fantastic, the live DJ music was nice, and our waiter was attentive, as well as the floor manager who came by a few times to ask how we were doing, and if everything was to our liking. It was a very busy night, and some tables were having delays with their food arrival, but we had no issues at all.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mechant Boeuf. Visited on our last night in Montreal, we were staying in Hotel Nelligan so it was really handy to have the restaurant within the hotel! Our waiter was outstanding, service we received was exceptional could not praise him enough!! Cocktails here are very good, similar menu to the rooftop terrace at Nelligan.
Food was lovely we both had burgers and no complaints, big portions which is always good.

We can always count on Mechant Boeuf for great late night meals - the quality has always been great and the service and atmosphere are the perfect cap to a fun day for those who dine at later hours. A special thanks to the staff who were kind and treated us to a complimentary dessert because they felt we waited too long for our main dish - not true! Cooking a whole chicken takes a certain amount of time - and we were prepared. On future trips to Montreal we will certainly plan to go back.

Accueil sympathique mais déjà extrêmement bruyant !! Impossible de parler à table sans hurler... le coca servi était juste immonde (pas de bulles et eau au fort goût prononcé de calcaire). Pâte à la carbonara à 24$... la seule chose qu'on a reconnu était le prix à l'addition ! Le sol de notre table était rempli de déchet (salade, frites, ketchup). Ensemble très moyen, heureusement que la viande est bien cuisinée. Pour résumé : trop de bruit, plats trop chers pour la qualité, boissons pas top et propreté moyenne. Nous étions trois à table et nous serons trois à ne pas y retourner.
