Great place for a business lunch. Fast and friendly service. High quality fresh food dishes at affordable prices for downtown area. It's becoming my favorite place now.

I had the filet mignon with the samurai sushi, along with the VIP platter as an appetizer. The food was superb, I will definitely recommend.

The menu that is shown online is no longer valid. They cannot make modifications to certain items as they are prepared in advance. My steak was overcooked, but I didn't bother to say anything when asked, as I was already less than impressed, and wanted to get to my show. I would rate the service as very good but not excellent, as it was not the impeccable, refined service one would find at a top notch establishment, this was in part a reflection of the restaurant as a whole which offered standard fare, and had the server doing triple duty, host, server and attending bar. The wine list was limited particularly, in terms of wine by the glass, nothing special here. The sushi entree was actually better than the steak. I heard that this place was good for a business lunch, I can see it as such, rather than a pre -show venue, as there is not much ambiance to get you in the mood. I would not repeat.

C'est un excellent restaurant situé à coté de l'Hôtel Reine Elizabeth.
Lors de congrès à cette hôtel, on peut y aller en marchant et en général tout le monde apprécie manger à ce restaurant.

Had a delicious filet with bacon laced mashed potatoes and grilled veggies..the butternut squash gnochhi as appetizer were so light and flavourful. nice wine selection however the waiters are really well trained and a delight. An excellant waiter arrives quietly and refills the wine glass automatically. Very impressed by quality of food and their service is by far the best in town.

I have gone to Vargas several times and rarely disappointed. I’m used to take the chefs special to try something new. However, this time i felt it was not worth the money. I ordered the chicken teriyaki, I have to say that it was good but it was not great. Usually the plates are amazing and presentation is well thought. But this time it was quite ordinary and looked like any other sauté on rice. Come on Vargas, I know you can do much better 😉

Don’t hesitate to go there for the food (great most of the time) and the crowd!

The skinny fries here are literally the best fries I have ever tasted in my whole life. I would come back just to eat those fries.

The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was very good. I had the rib steak. It was just a tiny bit too charred for my liking, but I still enjoyed it. I really enjoyed their lychee martini.

La nourriture était excellent et nous avons eu un très bon service de la part d Étienne. Je suggère fortement un dj et/ou de la musique (style stk à new York, Vegas ou Miami) le potentiel est là et ça attirerait la clientèle. Les cocktails sont à améliorer.

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.

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 .
