Gastro Pub
A gourmet tavern where you will feel just like home Gaspar’s kitchen serves up fresh, pub-style cooking and wide variety of local beers and spirits. The menu: soulful staples, original cocktails and friendly service in a classic tavern setting. The space, originally a 19th-century warehouse, preserves much of its old-school furnishings but with a few novel kicks. And come summer, it welcomes the warm weather with its big terrace on rue de la Commune.

    We arrived and the staff weren't ready for clients yet. They spoke to each other like they owned the place, not paying attention to what they were saying, or how loud they said it. The waitresses seemed a little loss, like they were all being trained. We ordered our appetizer to share, which was alright but not worth the money. I have nothing bad to say about our main meals, they were very good. But the staff treat the place like its their own home. A good work environment is essential, but making drinks for staff while on shift, right in front of clients who made orders and are waiting is not professional. I'm not from the city. I live in a small town where we see the same staff, and they see us on a weekly/monthly basis, so maybe I'm over exaggerating. Working in a restaurant is definitely not the easiest job, my little brother lives in downtown and has been in the restaurant business for years. I'm disappointed also that the staff don't entirely support the Gaspar establishment. I openly heard a staff member asking a client where they were staying and when she answered that she staying at an air bnb, he said good choice. Openly making jokes about drugs is also a conversation topic that should be avoided. I don't care what you do on your free time. I'm not one to judge, but loose lips sink ships. There's a time and a place to make jokes, and there's a volume at which you can speak so others don't hear you...

    We went to Taverne Gaspar on a Wednesday night. The place was busy but not packed. We had a reservation so we figured we would be offered a decent table. Instead, we were offered the first table next to the door: not exactly the best place in the restaurant! It is a Taverne, so you would expect to be able to drink a beer. Nope. They only had a few imports available. Nothing local. None of the micro brewery products on the list. Service was cordial and food was okay but too expensive for what it is. This place is in Montréal’s Old Port. I should have known better but it is only now that I realise it is a Tourist trap. Nothing else!

    Overall fantastic night! From cocktails to dessert and coffee the service was great! Very attentive and friendly! Food in general was very good except for the French fries that accompanied most of the plates ordered arrived soft and warm. None of us complained and ate with gusto as we were hungry. A four man band was performing, great soundtrack of oldies to add to the ambiance. Was our first time out in months, loved it and will be back soon!

    Appetizers were served in an appropriate time frame however the main course took too long at least 40-45min wait. We kept asking the staff and everyone said you are next. When I asked the manager he went in and didn’t even give me the courtesy to tell me if and when we should expect the food.

    We had a reserved for 715. We arrived and once seated which took a while for host to seat us, we were seating for another 20 minutes without a waiter coming to our table or even pouring us water. We decided to pick up and leave and go elsewhere. Before leaving we mentioned the situation to the manager and she asked if we wanted to try again. I’m not sure to try what again? Sit there for another 20 mins to be ignored. No thx! We went to a fantastic Mexican restaurant nearby that greeted their guests and welcomed us happily.

    We went there for the first time for a birthday party. The service was slow although there was almost nobody in the restaurant. The tables and furniture are worn out... they would need to be replaced. The food was ok, the drinks were great! Although i mentioned many time that we were celebrating someone's birthday, i had to ask for the cake after we got the bill... it ruined the surprise... and our jubilee was rushed to eat it as we were running late for our Cirque du Soleil show. They made us pay for the birthday cake which I have never seen in 30 years... will never go back. There are so many options in the Old Montreal.

    Nous avons dû après 18 minutes d'attente demander au serveur de pouvoir commander notre entrée ainsi que nos breuvages. Certains clients des tables voisine on tout simplement décidé de quitter. Il y avait plusieurs serveurs attitré à la terrasse, cependant le manque de communication entre eux sur la répartition des sections "commentaire de notre serveur" a rendu l'expérience client désagréable.
