About Taverne Gaspar

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 invited some business friends from France at the restaurant, everyone had a different meal and was completely satisfied.
The service was friendly and the atmosphere just right for the occasion.

Nous avons eu un excellent service, notre serveuse était aux petits soins pour nous. J'ai beaucoup aimé le décor de la place et l'ambiance. Niveau nourriture c'etait bien mais pas incroyable. J'ai été un peu déçue par les pains dorés, un pain beaucoup trop mince pour que ça soit savoureux... Les pommes de terre aussi un peu décevantes... Le café filtre était bon et j'ai beaucoup aimé les tasses Gaspard !

J'y étais dans le cadre de la semaine #HappeningGourmand. Dommage pour les 2h obligatoires, on a manqué un peu de temps même si nous le savions. 2 h1/2 serait plus juste. On est bien chez Gaspar, on aime y rester.

Excellent service and food. Went with a group of colleagues after work for “Happening Gourmand.” The arugula, pear, goat cheese salad with the Honey Jack Daniel’s vinaigrette was so tasty...especially the feied goat cheese balls... melted inypir mouth! The shrimp /asparagus risotto and maple syrup crème brûlee were delisc!!! Flavorful as can be. As a Mtl foodie, I recommended this place, and my choice did not dissapoint, of course. Colleagues were happy and satisfied:)

My friends and I went for Happening Gourmand and we all took the chicken dish and left disappointed! The meat was very bland with no taste. The salad entree I had was delicious as well the dessert.

Very comfortable place, although I’ve gotten the tiny table by the stairs twice now, and it’s probably the worst table in the house. Very good steak, awesome service - very friendly staff.

La soirée avait bien commencé.

On a pris notre commande et servi nos drinks.
Je voyais que notre plat principal prenais du temps à arriver. il y a une même une table qui est arrivé après nous et à reçu leur plat. La serveuse n'est pas venu nous voir.
J'ai interpellé un autre serveur pour lui dire que ça faisait plus de 1 heure que nous attendons notre repas.

Il est venu nous dire que la cuisine avait perdu notre commande.
Quand notre commande est arrivé j'ai dû retourner mon steak car je n'aimais pas la cuisson de la viande.La serveuse ne nous a pas demandé comment nous aimerions notre cuisson. Rare ont été les fois où notre verre d'eau ont été rempli.

Elle nous a donner un shooter gratuit pour comme dédommagement .

le désert était bon.

Je suis un déçue de mon expérience.

Saw this Gastropub on Open Table. Recommendations an photographs made it look very appealing. My wife and I each had a cocktail: the sidecar was refreshing and a great size, the Saint Jermaine was fantastic according to my wife. We then had dinner: I wife had the salad for Micelli which was perfectly plated, while I had the duck confit and apple grilled cheese which was out of this world. A good wine and beer list as well!

J'ai beaucoup aimé le service, votre flexibilité et la nourriture. J'apprécie que l'on est ajouté une table, alors que j'avais téléphoné le 30 décembre pour ma réservation du 31. Super service !! :-) Merci à Julie qui m'avait téléphoné pour m'offrir le menu des fêtes avec les options, très gentille et flexible. Nous allons nous revoir.
P.S mon groupe d'amis n'est pas toujours facile à plaire et ils ont été ravis de manger chez vous. Nous considérons l'option de fêter avec vous pour toute la soirée l'année prochaine.

Soirée très désagréable, la bouffe était très moyenne voire poche, la serveuse était inexpérimentée et peu présente, et on s'est fait mettre dehors après 2 heures même si nous n'avions pas fini notre café après avoir dépensé 200$ parce que les réservations sont limitées...ce qu'on ne nous avait pas dit avant. J'ai été vraiment décue.

Bravo pour l'amabilité des serveurs. La musique "live" a grandement ajouté au charme de l'endroit, les deux musiciens/chanteurs étaient vraiment talentueux! L'ambiance est merveilleusement rustique, en parfait accord avec le Vieux-Port. La nourriture est bonne, les entrées et les desserts sont soignés et délicieux mais le tout serait excellent si un peu plus de finesse et de raifinement au niveau de la présentation des plats principaux était appliqué.

Had to ask for water, ribs were not the best, too sweet, too much sauce, served on too many friends and nothing else like coleslaw or pickle, same with burger, too many fries, all tasted fine though.

Attended on Christmas Day for an evening meal for 5 people. One dish - fish and chips - arrived cold and was returned. The replacement was also cold. Staff were helpful but seemed to be inexperienced. Overall the food wasn’t very good and, unfortunately, my family and I could not recommend this restaurant.

Some dishes were really good and visually appealing but the mussels and fries were a mess. Cold fries, way too many mussels and the serving pan was messy and made getting to the sauce difficult. And forget about mayonnaise in a plastic bottle, very tacky...but great waitress.

 (Vancouver)·Dined on December 13, 2017

Our party ordered the Salmon Tartare, the fish and chips, the grilled salmon, the BBQ ribs, and the flank steak. All were fantastic. We shared liberally among each other, and the verdict was unanimous—not a dud in the whole collection. Presentation was great, too. Service was friendly/casual and timely; everything arrived in order. There was even a live band (a duo) which was both unexpected and terrific. We went there on the basis of a friend's recommendation, and would enthusiastically pass on that recommendation to anyone we like. Maybe a tad pricey, but certainly not out of line for the quality.

We had a great evening. The drinks were original and tasty. The food was very good, you must try the ribs!

The best part about our evening was the service. Our, soon to be 4 years old, son loved his experience, the waiter was very nice to him and even engaged in a conversation with him. They made a half portion mac & cheese for him, we both loved it!
