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.

The atmosphere that might was noisy - several 10+ people parties in one hall made it hard to hear a person next to you. But it was still good and we felt welcomed. The waiters were perfect the food was interesting and delicious. Even the kids liked it all. So that's definitely a place to try out. Thanks goes to the whole team! You saved my birthday from being dull and made it a night to remember :-)

Très bon et excellente ambiance. Mais surtout, le staff était exceptionnellement attentionné.
Mon seul commentaire: à moins d'être de très gros mangeurs, je suggère de prendre une assiette pour deux, l'assiette était gigantesque.
J'y retournerais sans hésiter!

Food was mediocre and either the waiter or the cook got the order wrong. The place felt like a tourist trap.

Hello CTBM, So sorry to read your review as what you are describing is not a typical experience at Taverne Gaspar. We are not in business to prey on tourits! We are proud professionals. We serve ten of thousands of locals AND tourists every year. What did you order? As much as I would like everything to be perfect, sometimes, mistakes can happen. Did you let your waiter know? It would been our pleasure to correct the situation on the spot instead of responding to a review online :)

La nourriture était excellente, comme à toutes les fois où je suis allée à la Taverne, toutefois, le service laissait énormément à désirer. La serveuse ne semblait pas connaître le menu, elle était de très peu d'aide pour répondre à nos questions, et nous avons reçu nos assiettes avant même d'avoir été desservies du service suivant.... Bonne nourriture, mais expérience décevante.

Bonsoir Bobinette, Pour nous, une sortie au restaurant réussi passe par de la bonne nourriture, un service attentif et professionel et une ambiance de feu. Déçu d'apprendre qu'il manquait un service de qualité pour rendre votre expérience mémorable. Vos commentaires seront utilisés à des fins de formation parce que ce n'est pas cette façon que nous entrainons notre équipe de service. Croyez moi!!! Sur ce, j'espère que nous aurons l'occasion de vous revoir bientôt :) Merci et bon weekend!

Made a reservation for 9:30pm. We weren’t seated until 10:30pm. Everyone in our party ordered steak and frites. All steaks were undercooked. We were given a round of champagne as an apology.

Hello MikeK, I'm truly sorry about your experience. We were extremely busy with the Montréal à Table special (similar to restaurant week in the NYC). People were having such a good time and despite us letting them know that another group was waiting, they didn't want to leave and allow us to prepare the table for your party. As for the steaks, it would've been our pleasure rectify the situation if we would've been made aware of it! Sincerely, D. Duchesne Maitre d'hôtel, Taverne Gaspar

Good afternoon, Thank you for sharing your experience. We agree, it can can a bit noisy when we are packed. However, there are a couple of tables that are a bit further from the action. Ask for it on your next visit. Glad you enjoyed the steak :) I highly suggest that you ask for wine recommandation next time. With over 40 different reds and 20 different whites, I'm sure we can find something better then average to compliment your meal :) Kind regards, The Taverne Gaspar team

The menu was not very well balanced. The fruit as a starter were not washed, the pastry as a starter tasted like it was frozen and not fresh. The egg benedict was better quality, but lacked seasoning. Service was impeccable, and room was not too noisy so on the ambiance side, it was a great experience. If only it was better in the plate....

Le brunch m'a rendu curieux de revenir pour essayer le menu du soir. Les assiettes du brunch, visuellement etaient un peu ennuyantes. Elles manquaient un peu decoration. Au niveau du gout, tout etait tres bon.

Je reviendrais assurement a nouveau pour essayer autre chose sur le menu.

Auparavant, les frites étaient fraîches; maintenant, elles semblent être des frites congelées. Et 22$ pour une poutine (avec canard confit) est très cher, malgré qu’elle soit très bonne. Bonne sélection de bières et de vins au verre.

I took a group of college students from upper NY on a field trip to Montreal (baking majors). Initial service was poor- it took 10 minutes after being seated for our server to ask for drink orders. After that she was very attentive and caring. The food was average at best: steak frites came with pencil-thin fries instead of steak fries, gravy on poutine was markedly sweet- so was au jus. Dessert was sub-par: curdled creme brulee and cheesecake, chocolate s'more mousse cake tasted like it came out of a box.

Merci de votre commentaire EileenDH. Nous savons que certains groupes peuvent être plus bruyant que d'autres.

Si c'est possible, ça nous fera grand plaisir de vous accommoder :) Au plaisir de vous recevoir chez nous très bientôt! David
