RESERVATIONS ARE FOR MEALS ONLY. Please advise us if you are running late otherwise your reservation will be cancelled after 20 minutes.

Featuring a plethora of interesting 1920s-inspired design details, the Dominion Square Tavern is a cut above your average downtown eatery. Enjoy simple classic fare or british dishes such as mussels and fries, Cornish hen, scotch egg or bangers and mash in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Top it off with a sinful serving of sticky toffee pudding. A full bar, cocktails, wine and beers await.

Excellent establishment, we go there for the bone marrow in particular, although all of the food is superb!

Overall we were pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere and ambience, this being our first time here. Sitting at the bar we were well taken care of. The food was what we expected as far as comfort food. Good portions. It’s a noisy bar but we expected this so it was fine by us! We’d return given the opportunity.

Usually really good, but the fish and chips were not great. Too long in the fryer. Gin and Tonics delicious.

The room is a classic. They don’t make them like this anymore. Appetizers, desserts and cocktails are great. Entrees are overpriced and underwhelming.

Bit pricy for the quantity in the plates but the food is very good. The scoth egg is delicious but the 16$ price tag on it is very much ridiculous.

Visiting Montréal with my boyfriend and we wanted to find a good restaurant near bell center.

The decor was so nice and the service was great. Food is delicious. We both got the peso Gucci special and cauliflower soup. One of our favorite meals here so far!

We were in Montreal for only a day and a half. The tail end of a couple-week trip. We’re feeling a bit weary and worn-down, but wanted something special for our last night in town, we found this wonderful place. It was approximately a 5 - 10 min (max) walk from the Marriott Chateau. In a seemingly nice restaurant-laden area. Definitely very noisy and very warm (wear layers you can shed)- but clearly it’s a popular place so if you’re up for a little lively chatting it’s so so worth it. It is a really beautiful and quirky, antique-covered, hip space. Feels casual and relaxed, yet elegant and unique. Friendly and great service, incredible food, perfect ambiance. We could not have asked for a better send-off supper. Merci beaucoup - C’est très bon! Enjoy!

Taverne Square Dominion (TSD) has an energy and ambiance that is contagious. It was a good thing we had reservations for our last Friday night in Montreal because the restaurant was absolutely full. People were enjoying great service and terrific food even though the place was at max capacity. You must try the Welsh Rarebit and their Braised Beef Shoulder. Also, don't forget the Sticky Toffee Pudding to finish things off for desert. We highly recommend TSD and will find ourselves going back there every time we visit Montreal! It was a memorable experience for us. I am certain it will be for you as well. You will not be disappointed based upon our experience...

We ate at this higher than average priced restaurant on a Thanksgiving Monday night. There are open tables when we arrived and when we left.

The entire experience took just about 45 minutes including cocktails and after dinner drinks.

Pacing was very poor. We had no sooner gotten our cocktails when dinner arrived. Not what I expect from a fine dining experience.

The food is excellent. The ambiance is warm and inviting. The servers are pleasant. But the overall experience was lacking because it was so rushed.

I wouldn't choose this restaurant again.

Food was good. It was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think, much less have a conversation. Kudos to the wait staff for being able to provide excellent service under extreme conditions.

My wife and I returned here after four years to celebrate our wedding anniversary (we’re from the States, but were married in MTL). Boy, this place never disappoints. The drinks are top notch for a reasonable price, the food is stellar, and the service always out of this world. It’s one of our favorite places to dine when we visit MTL, and we don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

Always a fan of DST but last Thursday night I found it hard to even carry on a conversation with the people sitting right next to me...noise level was insanely high. Some ability to acoustically account for VERY busy nights would make a lot of sense.

I know it’s supposed to be like an old Taverne experience, but if the noise is so high you can’t even carry on a conversation then the reason for meeting friends is irrelevant...may as well go some place quieter where we can actually talk to each other without screaming.
