Service was great as always and it is a great place to go for a meal out The food is very well prepared but my only beef would be that the portion size, particularly steaks, is on the small size When you pay $30 for a steak and fries you expect a little more beef. I ordered the 10oz maybe I got the 5 by mistake if not then the 5 must be thimble sized

We were a party of three. Our waitress, Jaylene was excellent. The food was awesome.
Looking forward to our next meal there. So wonderful to have Montanas here in Barrhaven. Thanks for an interesting meal experience.

The booth we were in offered privacy which we enjoyed as we chatted and caught up. Our server was available and yet not overly so in that she was there when we 'needed' her. All of us enjoyed our meals which were not overpriced and nicely presented...good value for money spent. We weren't rushed at all. Definitely an enjoyable experience.

We enjoyed our dinner but did find that the noise level was quite high. I would suggest that they turn down the music.

We enjoy very much the Montanas in Barrhaven. It is very well managed. The service is excellent. The food is also excellent. We only started to go back to Montanas when it opened in Barrhaven. Is there was something negative, it is parking and no where to hang your coats.
Thanks for asking, Jim and Carol Cooke

The server Madison is the reason we’ve gone back again instead of neighbouring Lone Star or East Side Mario. Her friendliness and attentive to details is exceptional. Also great desserts

Recommendation: to feature local craft beers from the OTTAWA region

Poor quality of food. Had the steak taco salad and it was lacking flavour. Chicken and waffle burger was ok but too sweet for my liking. The kids pizza was horrendous: thick yeasty crust on top of a fries...which obviously were then soggy and gross. Appetizers: deep fried pickles were good but the spinach dip..well there was like 2tbsp of dip for a plareful of pita, which was deep fried for some reason.

I thought the cole salw could have been cut up a lot finer. The ribs and honey garlic sauce and the potato were terrific.

Good food and good service, although they should bring out everyone's supper at the same time so that everyone is eating at the approx same time. Otherwise one of our favorite eating spots.

Great meal. There on NYE celebrating our 14th anniversary. Server was obviously new and a little unsure, but very nice.

Made one small mistake on the bill and the manager quickly made it right. I would recommend the restaurant.

Avoid the pulled pork sandwich - nothing but grizzle, very disappointing.
My husband's burger was awesome.

Good choice on menu from kids to adults with some innovative plates. They had fried baby brussel sprouts with baonband maple syrup as a side dish, very good. Draught from ac vent would be good on hotbday but not in winter.

My steak was excellent tho the chimichuri was too oily. The cornbread was excellent.

The drinks were tasty however seemed low on alcohol- i had 2 margaritas and not even a buzz.

The rest of the food was clearly not fresh- it was premade and warmed up- potato smash was luke warm, bacon brussels sprouts were cold, beans were luke warm, ribs were dry.

The music too loud and not appropriate for a restaurant- more for a sports bar.

Service was good -until our server told us at the end of the meal that she was fighting a cold - we were kind of grossed out

We used to eat at Montana all the time and we were excited that one opened in Barrhaven.

There are still some growing pains because it's a new location with some new staff, but everyone was friendly & we found the seating better for young kids (2 under 3, both in high chairs) than any other Montana's location we've been to before. It's our family's favourite restaurant to spend our Scene points at, and there's a good variety on the kids menu (7 or 8 options) rather than the 2 or 3 usual options. It's a convenient location for us, and we were pleasantly surprised that it was different from other locations in town. We will definitely be back! Be warned though - the music isn't especially loud but the atmosphere is pretty loud. It was great because it drowned out our 2 super whiny/temper tantrum-y (at the end of our meal when it was getting close to bed time) kids so nobody around us really noticed them.

Not ready to serve alcohol yet! I was not communicated ahead. Was too late to change plan when I got there. Would have enjoyed the evening more with a pint or two of beer. :-(
