My wife and I had a wonderful diner at Vargas. The ambiance was delightful, the service impeccable and the food was to die for. You helped make our first date night in several years memorable. We will be back in the future! Thank you!

Great atmosphere and vibe for either business lunches or fine dinning.
I had the walleye with pear, very different preparation, very tasty. I was however disappointed with the rice, very plain.
Looking forward to my next visit.

We were looking for a good steak in Montreal, and we found it here at Vargas. I also recommend the onion soup. Excellent. And the service was top notch.

Repas bien préparés, bonne qualité et bon service. Nous étions 6.
Par contre, le coût du verre de vin 9oz Chardonnay à 18.00$ est plus difficile à faire accepter par nos employeurs.

Cela fait plusieurs fois que nous allons manger à votre restaurant et nous y retournerons.
Bonne semaine, Gilles

Went here on New Years Day because they were open. The food was ok, portions were large for their tuna burger and salad. The rest of the food on the menu was expensive and most of it was served a la carte.

Overall the experience was adequate. The food was good, but a little pricey given that more research would find other places with better food and better value. The waiter gave a great wine choice and we were quite pleased. My wife had the chicken dish which was dry and she could only eat half of it. Otherwise the other dishes were good, yet for the price, I am only providing a moderate review since this was our least favorite restaurant during four nights in Montreal .

Très achalandé en raison de la période de l'année. Nourriture correct (pâtes manque de saveur), service correct (on a demandé du fromage et ce fût long avant de l'avoir). Un peu cher payé pour la qualité du repas. La soupe et le pain était excellent.

L'assiette de gnocchi était délicieuse quoi que trop salée.

Nous avons été déçus du service. Plusieurs tables sont arrivées après nous et ont reçus leur repas avant nous. Un délai de 50 minutes pour recevoir nos assiettes est vraiment trop long, surtout considérant que l'une de nous n'avais pas d'entrée et qu'elle avait commandé une simple salade. Elle a dû la manger à l'extérieur puisqu'elle était attendue ailleurs.

L'ambiance était bien, par contre notre serveuse n'a pas compris lorsque nous mon patron avons mis son verre de vin à l'envers afin de lui indiquer qu'il ne consomme pas d'alcool. Mon patron fait parti des AA et ce petit détail, lorsqu'elle lui a servi un verre de vin quand même a été bien remarqué et la situation a créer un malaise avec nos invité qui avai commender la bouteille de vin.

The noise level was phenomenally high, causing all present to carry on conversations by shouting with obvious results. Food was between average and mediocre, with hot entries served on lukewarm plates. Service was unprofessionally friendly. The restaurant was understaffed with poor attention to the continuity of the meal & significantly delayed simple requests.

Meh...
Overpriced for what you get. 14oz new your strip lacked flavour and spices. Expect to pay extra for your sides, they cant even throw you a dollop of mash or fries without paying extra for it. We will stick with our tried and tested (the Keg).
