    Overpriced sushi. They can compare to sushi you buy at the cornerstore/depanneur. Tomahawk steak had no flavour. Would not go back.

    We had the grilled octopus as entrée, which was ok. It was a bit too soft to our taste and too heavy on the pepper. Other than that, the lamb and the lobster tails are both delicious! Services are impecable.

    Our waiter John kindly guided us in wine and food choice, and generally the staff were very flexible in accommodating the two additional people in our party without fuss. Being a steak restaurant there are limited vegetarian options, but a creative solution was suggested, again with flexibility (on chef's part, taking advantage of another table's pre-ordered veggie solution). The acoustics are tricky as the space is cavernous, but the atmosphere was fun and all had a great time.

    I planned a group dinner for eight on a Saturday evening on the previous Thursday. There are VERY few restaurants in Montreal that allow to schedule for parties over 6 online. VARGAS DOES!! The evening before my dinner I was told that two very senior leadership in my company would be joining. I was afraid I’d have to stand in the hall while they ate. I walked to Vargas and Stefan’s worked MAGIC to accommodate us allowing for an enjoyable, productive, energetic meal and lively networking. They created a private room space with curtains to close, but the noise level was perfect in the restaurant so we never had to close them. The room charge is absolutely worth it at Vargas because everything was on point. So on point that he was impressed with the venue choice.

    Business dinner for 6. 5 steaks and one sea bass. Everyone enjoyed their selection. Salads, onion soup, and calamari app were all very good. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend Vargas and will be back on my next visit to Montreal.

    The service definitely needs improvement. My friend did not like her side of mashed potatoes and asked if it could be returned the waiter then asked her a bunch of random questions and insisted to find out if she ever eaten mashed potatoes before. Weird. The waiting period was extreme even though it was quiet for a sunday evening. We felt left out and not satisfied of our dinner for the amount we paid for. Mind you as soon as we arrived we were told by our waiter this would be an experience worth our while. It was not unfortunately.

    Super service reçu de Carlos et Diego, très avenants et professionnels . Je trouve par contre que la propreté laissait un peu à désirée, la nappe était salle, il y avait des frites sur le bord de la fenêtre et sur le sol, j'ai aussi nettoyé mon verre de vin. A ces prix je m'attends à un minimum. La nourriture était excellente

    It was all right. One of the guests never got their steak done quite right (first extremely well done then followed by a medium rare was ordered medium-well). Most everyone else enjoyed it.

    Je ne recommanderai pas Vargas à mes amis. On avait une réservation à 20:30 On a attendu 20min pour que la table soit prête et on a ensuite attendu 20 -25min pour que quelqu’un vienne s’occuper de nous et qu’on puisse avoir de l’eau. De plus la viande est bonne mais pas assaisonné du tout.

    As usual we had a great evening. Our food was fantastic! I had the beef ribs and my wife the chicken topped with fresh arugula. I was warned by our server that the ribs could be a touch messy, but man they were tasty! The Zinfandel sauce was outstanding! All in all our meals were superb and we were well taken care of by our server.

    Never again will I step foot in tjis restaurant. I gave them a second chance and not only did they deceive me again by not advising me that the terrasse was closed but the person at reception was loud, impolite and sarcastic. Their food isn't that great to begin with. The first time, I was hosting a couple from Dubai so I was embarrassed as the server was too casual, there was no ambiance and the food was meh... Although both times i had specified i wanted a terrasse, no one thought of advising me it was closed. The 2nd time, I was hosting a business lunch which I'd organized a month earlier AND confirmed 2 days prior specifying outdoor seating due to Covid. Again I wasn't advised but I didn't stay thus time. They made a poor impression on me and my guests and we were very well served at The Keg. Shortage of staff cannot be an excuse. You need to pay attention to service snd reorganizing your environment. It's summer and Covid is in its 7th wave. Adapt and open up your patio already!

    Worst experience ever. Was so looking forward to dining here. Front of house check in staff are not interested in being friendly or courteous at all. Problems started when we tried to order food and drinks. Waiter came back on 3 separate occasions to let us know they were out of something. First no beers, out of stock then no gyoza apps, then no shrimp tempura and then the 2nd and 3rd choice of alcohol not available. That’s when we said forget it and left. Update your menu or let customers know what’s not available ahead of time. This was ridiculous. No fault of the waiter and he was probably embarrassed to keep coming back. Left and went to the Keg down the street. And it was fantastic.
