Viande & Vin Grinder
The original decor screams Zébulon Perron (Furco, Buvette à Simone, Philemon). He created a comfortable and warm restaurant, kitchen and raw bar. Grinder characterizes itself by vintage and modern elements such as glass and metal.
On the menu, raw & cooked items: tartares, tatakis, ceviches, carpaccios, etc. Also on the menu, steaks and grilled or braised meats, all to be shared. Grinder also offers a variety of fish and seafood, served cooked or raw as well. More than a simple steakhouse, all food lovers will find something to their liking among our selection of fresh products.
100% of their wine list consists of privately imported wines, always changing with the seasons, and of course focusing on wines produced while respecting nature.
Great experience. First time there and already want to go back. Server went above and beyond. Amazing food and drinks!!
Recommended by close friends, did not disappoint. We took out of town friends and impressed them with our restaurant choice, even though we only went off of someone else suggestion. Great food and atmosphere.
We had a great time, the food was outstanding. 15oz Rib-eye bone out Medium rare, soooo good. Peter behind the bar was not only extremely knowledgeable on the menu and offered suggestions but was great at striking up a friendship and making us feel at home. We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and all the people.
We will most certainly be back for another round.
J’ai bien aimer mon expérience en général les entre étais excellente le seul partie qui m’a deplus ses que lorsque j’ai reçu mon contre filet il étais bien préparer à mon goût mais malheureusement il étais tiède et froid j’aurais aimer me le faire servir chaud il faut comprend qu’il en coûte quand même 57$ donc à ce prix là je dois dire que j’ai été déçus comprenez moi bien ses pas le prix du contre filet qui me dérange par contre lorsque je dois débourser une telle somme je m’attent a être satisfait au niveau de la cuisson et la qualité de mon plat. Sinon c’était très agréable beau restaurant belle décoration.
Our waiter was excellent and friendly. The tomahawk steak was outstanding. Thank you!
While we loved the wine list, the steak wasn’t well rested and under seasoned and arrived in a pool of blood and the cuisson was closer to rare than mid rare. My partner is celiac and didn’t have any issues, therefor a positive note. However since we came for a steak, we left a little underwhelmed.
Better than Joe Beef, hands down! Hanger steak with scotch butter was cooked to perfection. Salmon tartare was delicious. Pouding chômeur was the best ive had. Highly recommend this place. Great decor too.
Love this restaurant try to go when I visit Montreal ! I had the Rib Eye and my son the NY Strip, both top notch along w/ the side dishes. Service was excellent !
Déception dès mon arrivée, dans mon verre d’eau, j’avais deux fourmis volante dont une s’est retrouvée dans ma bouche avant que je m’en rend compte. La question est de quelle façon c’est arrivée là étant donné qu’on est en février. En plus, j’avertis la serveuse et elle ne fait rien pour rattraper le coup, elle me donne un nouveau verre d’eau ... sinon la nourriture est ok, mais c’est très cher.
Excellent restaurant, soirée parfaite je le recommande fortement.
Trendy, serving excellent food with on point presentation. Waitstaff is full of recommendations and smiles. Great spot for a business meal, a date, or a group dinner. Valet is very appreciated, given our winters and the lack of available parking in Griffintown. The menu is short and sweet, but delicious. Overall, a great go-to please.
I was rushed to get out of there. Food came way to fast between servings. No time to enjoy. It was a Wednesday evening not even a Friday or Saturday. Waitress asked several times if we were done. Took plates away too fast. Was in an out in a little over an hour.
Amazing food and amazing vibe for all sorts of occasions. Five stars!
Tout était délicieux! Meilleur steak et meilleur pudding chômeur à vie!
I highly recommend!
Great place and ambiance, we went for our 6 year anniversary. The food is very good; we ordered: the burrata to start, the tomahawk steak as a main but an excellent choice for a special occasion night-out splurge!
Great experience tasty food
A bit noisy
Service was perfect
Great ambiance with great music but steak ( we had the ribeye) was just average or slightly below average.
Went there on a colleague’s recommendation, on 23rd Dec our 40th Wedding Anniversary while we were visiting Montreal for Christmas. Booked in at very short notice.
Excellent experience. A culinary delight - food was awesome. Our waiter Julie knew her stuff - her food and wine advice was impeccable, as was her service with a smile.
Perfect combination of good food, trendy ambiance and good service
My wife and I are frequent visitors to Grinders both for business and social occasions including larger events like Christmas parties etc... Consistently excellent food and service with a fun very "Montreal" vibe. Highly recommended!
Second time at Grinder. Amazing both times. Music's a little loud, but I'm old! Beef short ribs melt in your mouth, and best Old Fashioned I've ever had. SO good.
Staff was really nice very welcoming the food was exceptional and had a great time overall
Anniversaire de ma conjointe
C'est un restaurant incontournable à Montreal, autant pour l'ambiance que pour la nourriture!
This place was amazing, my fathers friend owns it and really wanted me to try it. They did not disappoint
Our waitress Julie was amazing and the food was excellent and the ambiance was cozy. I will definitely be back.
I wanted popcorn shrimp as I seen someone posted a pic of a plate of it && the waiter said it wasn’t available or ever served.......
My daughters birthday
La soupe à l'oignon est succulente et gouteuse. Le tartare de saumon, traditionnel, est honnête et généreux. La terrasse est en réparation mais vaut le détour. Endroit très chaleureux et service toujours sympathique, même si les lieux peuvent paraitre un peu élitistes.
It was an amazing expérience!!! The food is delicious
Food is very good albeit quite pricey. Noise level a bit loud for dinner after 7pm. Service is okay. We were seated in the worst table (lots of traffic) and we asked to move and service went down from there. Maybe they didn’t appreciate us asking to move? Regardless food is super so would prob come back, despite cost and service.
Amazing food and nice wine selection!
The service was very slow and the waiter was not great at recommending wine.
Went there for my birthday and had a great dinner. Service was excellent.
This was my second time and unfortunately I won’t be back again
my wife ordered the saumon tartare as an entry and the smell wasn’t fresh and it was the worst She’d ever tasted, same experience with his principal dish; for me on The other side I ordered the new york steak and sincerely I was very disappointed, the cut had nerves and it was unflavored, it’s all I’ll say for a $300 wedding anniversary dinner.
Grinder is a great restaurant to celebrate any special occasion. I made a reservation and also requested a table in a more private area and it was granted. Their service is excellent and the food is amazing. I would recommend the Tomahawk steak for 2, the meat is really good. Grinder is hands down the best steak house in Montreal.
wish you had bone marrow. I always come for bone marrow. when it was missing in your menu I was surprised
But over all great food
Belle carte de vins et spiritueux. Ambiance agréable.
My birthday celebration was amazing second year attesting we love this stop. The atmosphere, service everything was perfection!!!
Belle carte des vins! Le sommelier connait bien les vins, et spécifiquement les vins du Jura que nous aimons particulièrement. Merci! Belle soirée et tres bon vin!
