About Moishes

There's a reason Forbes Magazine named us one of the Top 10 Steakhouses in the world. And why Moishes has become a Montreal favorite that has endured over 75 years. We think it's the authentic taste of each one of the old world favorites on our menu.

If you're an old friend, welcome back. We're always delighted to see you. We couldn't have come this far without you. If you haven't yet been, we warmly invite you to discover the taste for yourself, at our restaurant overlooking historic Saint-Laurent Boulevard (The Main.)

Ce n’est pas par hasard que le magazine Forbes nous ait désigné comme l’une des 10 meilleures maisons de steak au monde. Et que Moishes soit l’un des hauts lieux de la gastronomie montréalaise depuis plus de 70 ans. D’après nous, c’est à cause du goût authentique des mets à l’ancienne qui figurent sur notre menu.

Si vous êtes un habitué du restaurant, ce sera un plaisir de vous revoir. Nous sommes toujours ravis de vous accueillir.

We went with friends to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.
Everything we had was perfect and our waiter helped make this a special occasion.
My wife had the roast beef and I had the rib steak. Cooked to perfection.
The side dishes were also very good.Highly recommend the spinach and baked potato dishes.
Highest recommendations for a great experience!
Looking forward to going back.
Thanks to all the staff!!

This was nostalgic for my daughter and I, we brought my son in law for the first time. We used to go yearly as a family group and this was our first return after 20 years. The waiter staff has changed, food just as excellent, my medium rare steak was just perfectly done, salmon tartar was delicious. I asked about their desserts and they are all made there, the cheesecake was delicious. A good place to go for an occasion.

Wow has this place fallen off. My steak was served cold (luke warm at best). MY wife ordered medium and was served rare. Service was rushed, and not friendly. My $55 bottle of wine was a twist off bottle. Coat check attendant face us an attitude because he didn't think we tipped enough (gave $3 for 4 coats). Used to love Moishes but will never be back or recommend. For the amount of $$ they charge, you would expect top level food, service, and accommodation, and unfortunately this is just not the case.

We were visiting Montréal from New York and were told “dining at Moishes was a must!”
It was all that and more. The food was excellent , portions generous and the service -extraordinary! The staff was very welcoming and despite a packed dining room , we were never rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Definitely hope to visit Montréal again and dine at Moishes for another great meal.

Celebrated our Anniversary and they were great. Everything from the service to the food was exceptional! The Cole Slaw was simple but delicious and our steaks were cooked to perfection. My NY Strip was one of the best I ever had and the Monte Carlo potatoes were amazing. This is a must stop if you’re in Montréal. One of the best steakhouse in the world!!

Overall the best steak house in Quebec, and maybe Eastern Canada. First class service and the best quality around.

We went here in memory of Leonard Cohen. It was incredibly expensive but the portions were enormous. We didn't feel particularly welcome. It was very special for us and probably the staff didn't appreciate that.

The food was excellent and great value. The service was exceptional, even on a very busy night. this restaurant has also historical value, as it has been on this street for many, many years and reflects the changes in the neighbourhood.

Not my first time at this classic steakhouse. I found the service was slightly rushed and the steaks were definitely over cooked (we asked for medium rare). Overall, still great value for what you get

I had not been to Moishe's in many many years.
My brother was interested in going as he was visiting from Toronto and also had not been in years and a friend had mentioned, they really enjoyed it there.
So seeing as it was his birthday, I treated him. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. It was absolutely delicious!

Once again Moishes did not disappoint. The elegant atmosphere and great food makes it a restaurant I love returning to. We celebrated my birthday on this visit and it was a pleasant surprise to have the waiter bring me a slice of delicious chocolate cake as the entire restaurant sang me happy birthday. Thank you Moishes for making my birthday special. Can't wait to go back!

Don’t sit 6 men between the ages of 25 - 45 years old next to a family with 4 small children on a 5:15 reservation when the house is empty. That’s an amateur hour.

Had a delicious rib steak, appetizer, Monte Carlo potato, and dessert. Excellent wine list. The service was top-notch. The whole evening was special from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

Good is always great. This is one of my go-to places in Montreal. However, this time, I felt like the waiter was rushing us a bit. I get it, we had a VERY late reservation, but it was the only one we could book through the app. Otherwise, the food was wonderful and my party had a great time, as usual.

Best described as going to St-Hubert for rich people. Crying baby, sleeping child, waiter serving too many tables and always in a rush, frat boys and bachelor parties. Food was expensive, but very good. Lots of other nice places in town where the overall experience would be much nicer.
