This downtown, modern chic, trendy restaurant is not huge. It is was not that noisy for us as we had a business lunch. The place feels airy and the huge side windows make it well light during the day. The service was attentive and accommodating. Their Sunday brunch menu had a bout a dozen items which constituted large meals. Their fries could be a little less cooked.
It is not cheap but represents decent value.

Great venue for a cosy night out in Old Montreal. Although some items might seem a bit pricey at first, remember that you always get perfectly executed dishes and fresh ingredients. Extensive wine list, with quite a few interesting options by the glass. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

I definitely recommend !

The assiette de charcuterie is phenomenal. I haven't tried the egg dishes but they look quite good. The beef tartare is excellent also. It's a place where you can linger and no one tries to rush you; what a welcome change!

Had breakfast brunch here on new years day. Good choices, friendly staff. I had a smoked salmon bagel with loached eggs. Very tasty. My wife had a salmon tartar, which she enjoyed. It was a bit pricey due to the holiday New Years Day menu price.

We journeyed to Hambar for the last night of our trip to Montreal. Contrary to most of reviews which seemed to indicate a lively, loud spot, it was practically deserted the night we were there. We sat at the bar and had great service from an attentive bartender. Our food, however, was pretty lackluster for the price. My pasta was particularly bad - it was really chewy and lacked in flavor. I would consider trying Hambar again later at night for a post-drinks charcuterie plate or similar but won't be going back for dinner.

Went during Christmas day for lunch. Obviously good brunch fare / holiday menu was offered. But more importantly, they were very accommodating when we requested off-menu (not on the holiday menu) charcuterie board for the table, given that this place is known for it. Kitchen and staff accommodated us in this regard and made our experience that much better.

For a high end place... why do they have a stupid tv with sports? If I wanted to go to a sport bar I would have gone to Crescent street. Loose the tv is makes you cheap and a horrible experience.

Went for brunch and was very disappointed. The waitstaff seemed undertrained and inattentive. We asked basic questions about food preparation and two people seemed dumbfounded. The food was ok but not great and terrible value.

For me, coffee is important and their coffee was barely mediocre. Is it too hard have cream for coffee? Can you offer some Splenda or sweetener? Why didn’t you suggest a Bellini or Mimosa? For me, Hambar is a stereotypical hotel restaurant. Great concept but the execution was dreadful. There are far better brunch options blocks away.

We had excellent good and drinks, scotch for one of us and Moscow like for the other. We shared the octopus appetizer which was a surprise when presented and every bite delicious. My husband had the duck, expertly prepared and I had the lobster risotto, the best I've had and with a generous amount of large pieces of lobster as well.

Beaucoup de brunch sont offerts à Montréal et c'était un vrai choix que de venir ici. La carte était alléchante, les prix corrects et la localisation pratique. Au final, je suis déçue de mon choix. Si un des deux plats commandés était bon (pain perdu aux champignons), l'autre contenait des coquilles d'œuf et seulement un œuf poché sur 3 était coulant (deux œufs durs n'ont pas beaucoup d'intérêt). Par ailleurs, sans vouloir dénigrer le personnel, qui a somme toute fait son travail, je n'ai pas apprécié le service. Un serveur est venu une première fois essayer de retirer mon assiette alors que ma conjointe n'a pas fini son repas. Je refuse donc qu'on me prenne mon assiette mais deux minutes plus tard un autre serveur vient me la retirer sans s'annoncer alors que j'ai le regard ailleurs! On débarrasse une table lorsque tous les convives ont terminé et sûrement pas en glissant sa main sur la table sans annoncer sa présence. Ces quelques faux pas en font pour moi une expérience qui n'était pas à la hauteur de mes attentes.

Ahh, Hambar...such promise.
To begin, the staff were welcoming and lovely. We had a 7:30 reservation for 6, arrived on time and were seated right away. A good wine list led to a starting bottle and then we ordered appetizers...the oysters arrived relatively quickly and then the other items came an hour later! The items were very good and delicious but the prices were high compared to other similar menus and the food was very tasty and competent. The main courses as well took a loooong time to arrive. We left Hambar at 11:30! Upon review we felt disappointed in the meal mostly because of the inordinate amount of time between courses.

Cuisine excellente et remplie d'un brin de folie (i.e. La crème glacée au bacon). Il faut essayer ce restaurant au moins une fois pour son bar, sa cuisine et pour une sortie galante. Toutefois, la musique était forte pour aucune raison, ça détruisait un peu l'ambiance de l'endroit, c'était dommage. Je recommanderais aussi que le bar tienne une carte de ses cocktails signatures ou de quelques idées de cocktails pour les gens qui s'y connaissent moins. Peut-être serait-il aussi une bonne idée d'intégrer une plus grande sélection de bières et de produits locaux, ça augmenterait le rapport qualité prix.
