Service was good but the food was marginal. My oyster chowder had one partial oyster in an otherwise flavorless cream sauce. My wife’s salmon was fishy and barely warm. The bread/butter/cheese was good though.

We won’t return. There are much better options in Montreal.

I chose the Prix Fixe menu and was mightily disappointed. In my opinion, it is difficult to ruin a Prime Rib and twice baked potato with roasted cauliflower and broccoli; nonetheless Chef murdered the dish (not good)! First mistake, poor cut of meat. I was served a piece of beef that was riddled with grizzle. The top was encrusted with a overly salty rub yet zero flavor had permeated the meat. Also disappointing was the baked potato wish was devoid of seasoning and the vegetables were crisp and unseasoned. I left 75% of the food on the plate. When the waitress (who was genuinely concerned) inquired, I gave her a full explanation of why I had barely eaten the meal. When the Maitre’d inquired he was disingenuous, made excuses for the chef and basically chalked it up to my poor taste buds (implied, not stated). For my trouble I was charged full price and given a free glass of wine... really? The final dessert course was an underwhelming compote of pear with Creme Fraiche and a thin ginger cookie (pictured). Very unhappy and will NEVER return nor would I recommend the establishment.

My steak was blue rare, when asked for medium rare. My guests was also blue rare, his was taken to the back and refried - even the small bites he had cut off- brought back to him and was still rare. Awful experience for a group out of town celebrating a special occasion.

The food was really good. I had scallops and cleaned my plate. The service was very slow, but we were with friends so that helped. I would definitely go back because the food was so good.

Highlights: white sangria, retro onion soup, perfectly cooked rare flank steak, lightly orange crème brûlée, our very charming and patient waiter, and the not-too-over-the-top bistro decor.
Horrifying: the excessively loud street competition among Montreal DJs blaring just outside the restaurant that made conversation a chore and a pounding headache inevitable. Not the restaurants fault but still, it made a great meal memorable for the wrong reasons.

Bbq wings were great but I got the salad nicoise and it was very bad- didn’t eat most of it. My husband got the flank steak and he said it wasn’t good nor was it a flank steak. We would not recommend nor return back.

I REALLY wanted steak & frites. As the hour got later, it was hard to find a restaurant in the area to walk to with the dish I wanted. I finally settled on Thursday Montréal and I am so glad I did.
The bread pre-appetizer w/pickles, butter, cheese, and olive tapenade was perfect with my glass of French Rose. The steak was tender and juicy, perfectly done. The fries were just as I wanted and expected. It came with a small salad...fresh w/lite tasty dressing. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

A previous reviewer stated the steak portion was small and I agree. It was just enough for me; my husband and/or son would have asked “where’s the beef?” It is an 8 oz flank steak...
I would return and order it again!!

Mon spaghetti Vongole était trop salé et froid. Les palourdes étaient froides aussi. Le canard de ma convive semblait bien, mais les légumes étaient durs à son avis. Les desserts étaient parfaits cependant.

My experience was great, however, my main course was salty and hence couldn't be fully enjoyed. The waiter bought my table a piece of cheese from his home town which was amazing! Nonetheless, I recommend this spot. I like the friendly service and chic ambiance.

Excellent view of the Grand Prix festivities from the 2nd floor terrace and very relaxing on a beautiful day. Great food although it took a half hour to get our bottle of wine once we were seated. Unusual as service is usually impeccable! Probably due to very large party of 10 next to us.

Usual fine dining and attentive service in both official languages. Abbreviated theatre menu available for those in a hurry. Food is top notch but the wine list is pricey with bottles starting at $50. and rising quickly. Wine is available by the glass. Ambiance is good. Parking available across the street.

Premier jours sur la belle terrasse du Bistro Thursday's.. C'était un Vendredi midi pour le lunch, pas trop de monde et ambiance relax...

Tout comme dans les annees 80, je recommande cet endroit classique du Downtown life de Montreal. 😊

We were entertaining guests from out of town.It was brunch. The kitchen forgot to make one meal and the order of toast. Coffee service was sporadic and often luke warm. We waited forever for our meal and then our guests meal was missing ! Not good. Great service was always a given here. This time there were not many people and loads of waiters but the service was terrible . Food was mediocre
