I had put that this was for a birthday and no one mentioned it. The sister, hostesses, etc…not a good start

I’m old fashion this if we are to be served our cocktails I would think they should serve my girlfriend first but he didn’t.

I asked for a 2015 Pomerol Bordeaux and he came back with a 2019. I understand times are difficult in the industry but please make an effort to accurate.

Lastly their web site says they validate parking at place ville Marie. When I asked before I left you tell the manager was not keen about doing it. Then when I went to use it it didn’t work. So much for validating

The food was very good. Steak, truffle fries and veggies.

Food and drinks were delicious, but our waiter seemed to be in a rush to get rid of us. Brought our bill before we were done, despite having mentioned wanting drinks after dessert.
So we moved to the bar after paying, he served us again despite us asking for another server and at that point he was plain rude.

Some food was good but a long wait and cold or under cooked. Service was ok but if the food has to go back what is since. You are there to eat nothing else matters.

Heard great things but was really disappointed. Had the foie gras, it was beautifully presented and very tasty. The seared to perfection! Unfortunately, did not enjoy the rest of our meal. The bone marrow also beautiful but not well executed. We did not eat it. Ordered med-rare steak came out more med-well and burned. Also has the fish with rice and it was not very good. Unfortunately, our dinner was not excellent or even “ok”.

Service was great and staff were super nice but I do not believe we will back. The dinner was Definitely not worth what we paid for. Had way better meals at less fancy places. We were expecting more.

i was expecting to have some sushi since the place is a stake and sushi bar but it was not available. so the selectable menu was very limited. and the server was not very cautious. he split my coffee while putting down on the table. i also didn't like the taste of prime ribs i ordered but it could be likes and dislikes.

The service of our waiter was unacceptable in fact he was quite rude and condescending. The bartenders were very nice particularly a very nice young lady who recently joined the team there! Unfortunately our particular waiter really needed to self realize his own behaviour. He only seemed interested in our service and how our experience was when it was tip time. Not a pleasurable dining experience and grossly overpriced for small quantity

So easy to reserve and liked the covid 19 protocols ensuring our safety.
The wait time between courses was perfect! As if someone was watching you eat.
Presentation was in line of what you would expect from a quality restaurant.
Overall experience was enjoyable!

Nice restaurant and location. Dry Aged Steak and sautéed greens were great, Caesar salad was poor. Drinks were o.k., zero bread offered to the table at such a pricy place was surprising. Enjoyed but will try something else next time in Montreal.

We came 4 years ago and had a very bad service. We decided to give it another chance.

1) server forgot we were part of his section. Took 30 mins for him to come take our order

2) no followup during service. Water girl was the one who ensured we had a slight correction fixed

3) filet mignon, ordered well cooked, was cooked as a whole piece instead of papillon. This charred all around.

4) once complete took 45 mins (where we asked water boy for the cheque) before we were able to pay and leave.

We were not looking for 1 hours service but we came in at 6:55pm abd left at 11:45pm. Was a very long service which was not due to kitchen. As for meat quality, at the price the filet mignon is sold at and it being a steak specialty i would expect them to know how to cook a well done filet mignon.

Ps: i’m a steak lover, took the Tomahawk medium rare which was perfect. Again, more about my guests plate than anything else.

The main issue was service once more. Will not be a first, second or third choice to return.

A steep increase in price. A small climb would have been justifiable, but lobsters jumped from 42 to 59 CAD. We used to be regulars. Don't think we'll be going back.

They've stopped serving sushi at lunch, and there was no tartare either, two dishes i love at Vargas.

My colleague had Prime Rib which was unusually tough.
