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!

Food was not so good. Mini burgers were not tasty (specially the duck burger does not taste duck)
The place is quite noisy when the Canadians are playing.
However the service is very good and the place looks nice.

J'ai vraiment apprécié la taverne Gaspar. Super belle ambiance. Par contre, le repas était un peu froid et il manquait de sauce sur ma viande ... ! Mis à part cela, l'entré était excellente et le dessert aussi. J'y vais y retourner assurément.

C’est très bruyant - difficulté se jaser. Les serveurs vraiment sympathiques. La bouffe ‘hit and miss’. Le potage excellent, la raclette très moyen. Les mini burgers - deux excellent, mais celui avec le canard pas mangeable (opinion de 2 convives); le fish n chips bon, la mignonette de bœuf juste ok. Le dessert: brownie pas mangeable car trop dur (3 convives) et le pouding chômeur à peine passable.

Le repas était bon, mais très sec. Les mini-burgers, la viande était sec est les 3 boulettes goutaient la même chose... j'ai été déçue. Aussi le brownie était extrêmement sec et gelé. Encore une fois très déçue.

We went for Mtl à table. The menu was great, considering the price (21$). The raclette was excellent, soup was OK, fish'n'chips great, mini burgers were a bit tasteless, the pouding chomeur (although not a REAL one) was decadent, and the brownies was a bit on the hard site. All in all, we still enjoyed our evening. Wouldn't mind to pay a bit more for an upgrade on the food.

The food was good but the kids (teenagers) did not enjoy it. The meals were not designed for their palette. Too sophisticated for them. As a couple you will enjoy the food portions and taste too. In the dessert there was pudding chomeur which tasted like bread with caramel. It wasn't even warm. The brownies were hard and not moist at all. There was not gluten free choice for dessert either.

The service was very nice. The servers were helpful and informative. The ambiance was really good too. I enjoyed the evening.

Nous sommes allés au restaurant taverne chez gaspar moi et mon mari dans le cadre de Mtl à table et mon entrée était froide, mes mini burgers était fade, on aurait dit que ma galette de viande avait été boullie, ca ressemblait à un assiette de nourriture d'hôpital et la salade qu'ils ont servis avec était détrempée et la vinaigrette ne goutait absolument rien. On m'a amené mon dessert avant que j'ai fini mon assiette principale et on était pas capable de couper notre brownies avec la cuillère tellement il était dur et aussi le mien était partiellement brulé. Très déçue de ma première expérience pour Mtl à table je ne sais pas si je vais retenter l'expérience l'année prochaine, j'ai l'impression qu'on a été traité comme des clients plus bas de gamme que les autres parce que le menu était moins cher....

Très bon repas et coktails. Les entrées pour l’événement Mtl à table étaient très bonnes. La mignonnette de boeuf était bonne. Par contre le 3 mini hamburgers étaient corrects (très semblables entre eux, le choix de la sauce aurait du être demandé, car non précisé sur le menu). Pour le dessert, il ne restait plus de poudding chomeur. La tarte à la lime (en remplacement) était bonne. Le brownie était très sucré et plutôt dur. Bonne ambiance et bon repas dans l’ensemble. Shooters aux noisettes étaient délicieux et bon service!

Nous sommes allés pour le festival Montréal à table. L'expérience était bien jusqu'à ce qu'un groupe d'environ 50 personnes arrivent pour un party de bureau et se mettent à faire beaucoup de bruit. Ce qui est dommage, c'est qu'on nous avait placé à l'arrière du restaurant tout en sachant que ce groupe arriverait alors qu'il y avait de la place à l'avant du restaurant, ce qui aurait été plus tranquille. Le groupe est arrivé alors que nous en étions à la moitié du repas et on nous a offert de changer de place pour être plus tranquille alors que nous finissions notre dessert et ce, après qu'un membre du groupe, qui se sentait mal pour nous, en est fait la suggestion à la serveuse.... Bref, la soirée a bien débuté et la nourriture était bonne. Dommage que ça se soit gâté par la suite.

Visiting Montréal for the first time and this was our last meal before heading home... it was simply delicious and delightful. Our waitress, who’s name I am sad to say I didn’t catch, was great. When she recommended a drink which I ended up not enjoying, she felt terrible and offered immediately to replace it at no cost to me. The breakfast poutine was also very yummy! I will definitely go back and will recommend the Gasper to my friends!

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner on Friday night. The people attending were young adults and older adults as well. It was perfect. It was lively enough for the young people and the older people could still converse. And the hockey game was on; that was great as well, but it didn't make the place like a sports bar; we still felt we were in a restaurant.
I want to especially comment on the staff. All the staff were exceptional; friendly, competent and willing to help.
All in all, we were very pleased with our choice.

I attended Taverne Gaspar with a group of eight girls visiting Montreal for a bachelorette party. The atmosphere was awesome. Unfortunately some of our meals arrived at our table cold and that is the reason for the score of 3/5 on food. I think this may have been due to a very busy kitchen that evening. The service staff made up for it by bringing a round of free shots to our table. We proceeded to have a few drinks at the bar following dinner and the bar staff was great. All around a great experience and despite the cold food I would still recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting Old Montreal.
