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.
Dinner: Monday - Wednesday: 5:30pm - 11:00pm, Thursday - Saturday: 5:30pm - 12:00am
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!
Flies, flies, flies, wasps, more flies. We were swatting flies away constantly, then a wasp started swimming in our Coke. Too bad because the rest was great, certainly not cheap, but good food, service, and atmosphere. Nobody likes to spend a meal with flies and wasps.
Les entrées sont préparées en avance, les assiettes sortent du réfrigérateur...la viande est très bonne. Mais le service n’ est pas terrible et c’est assez cher.
Grinder always exceeds expectations
Great food, Great vibe , service attentive and with a smile
You can be confident if you take friends or out of town guests or have a business dinner no one wîll be disappointed.
Consistency is their signature
Nous avons adoré! mon conjoint est un vrai amateur de Steak alors il était aux anges! le service étais parfait également.. à refaire !
Great food. Service did not live up to the same quality as the food. Excellent experience overall.
Très beau décor mais il faut être jeune pour apprécier le bruit constant; si ne n'est pas la musique techno qu,on entend dans tous les restos branchés, c'est le bruit des autobus et autos qui cotoient directement la terrasse.
We went for lunch and it was way too hot. No breeze on the covered terrace and we were sweating like crazy. Too bad because the decor and the food are amazing!
What a wonderful surprise. Dined at the restaurant for lunch. The sushi sashimi melts in your mouth and the entree was just right. Will be back for dinner! :)
J'avais réservé. Je m'identifie en arrivant, on me fait poireauter 10 minutes... pour enfin me rediriger vers l'entrée principale. Il n'y avait toutefois pas encore beaucoup d'affluence à cette heure-là, soit 17h45. Hormis ce premier contact, j'ai beaucoup apprécié la fraicheur du tartare de saumon et la bonhomie des serveurs.
Was at Grinder for a business lunch and it was a great experience. The food was very good and the service excellent! And the noise level was less than during the evening so we could talk easily. Overall it was a positive experience.
Food is just okay
Great food ! Great service !
The food was not very good. They have “aligot” but it was more like mashed potatoes with some cheese baked in. The steaks had almost no flavor. I asked for medium rare, but it was rare. I could barely eat it cause it felt like I was eating raw meat for the most part. It came with beets and grapes which really didn’t complement the skirt steak. Skirt steak is really good so idk how you mess it up.
The food was good, we were expecting more for the price unfortunately. We got an overcooked meat but it was changed quite rapidly. Overall, the service was very good.
Delicious food, great vibe, and wonderful place! Highly recommended if you're in Montreal.
Excellent food, atmosphere, service. Cannot go wrong !
Hôtesse et serveurs désenchantée en entrant nous donne une table pour 2 mais ont été 3 très tasser. Bouffe froid et ordinaire.
Great restaurant. The only complaint is that there was no air conditioning & it was very uncomfortable during a heat wave with poor air quality warnings.
It's our second time at Grinder & it was another great experience. The food was delicious, cooked perfectly as requested. The waiter was really nice & very attentive. Really good overall experience so I don't mind the pricey tab. We will definitely go back.
Love the ambiance.. wine and good great.. oysters were outstanding but had tuna tartar and was very blend and small for price
Date night !
The tomahawk steak for 2 was delicious! Great service and ambiance
Sortie de couple

We had a great meal. Our waitress was very helpful with picking out wines and giving recommendations on different items. Food was very good and we loved the atmosphere!
