We had a great time the service was fantastic, food was phenomenal we will definitely be back to this restaurant
J’ai commandé une bavette cuisson saignante et elle est arrivée cuite médium, je l’ai retournée et la suivante était presque bleue, crue donc pas saignante et pleine de tirailles. L’assiette était moche bavette dans une sauce et frites présentation pas fort. Le tout était hyper salé vraiment trop. La Mayo dans un contenant de plastique aucun rafinement pour un morceau à $28. Le vin est très cher. Le service très ordinaire. Déception assurée. Je n’y retournerai pas.
The noise level was far too much. One could not talk with someone across the table.
Bon tu. Njhgd Chal’. Bof b.
Solid from start to finish! Spot-on in every detail.
After loving this restaurant in the past because of the quality of the food and ambience, I was very disappointed. The crab pasta had a far too strong fishy smell and the portion would have filled a saucer comfortably. They have changed the menu and it’s not better as some of the favourites have been removed. The waitress said they were trying to be closer to the earth to table movement but all I saw was an attempt to save money by not providing quality. I will not be returning nor will I recommend.
We had amazing food and such a great time for girls night. We recommend it!
Great food and great service !
We had a great evening; the food was delicious and the staff super nice and caring!
Fairly disappointing, Poor service. Food adequate - good shrimp dish with wraps- rest very plain.
Service was excellent. Our server Roxanne was outstanding!!!!
We chose to celebrate NYE at Tavern this year. They had a limited menu but there were enough options to suit even our most difficult dietary restrictions. The food was delicious minus the burrata being softer than we usually prefer. Service was spot on and we were VERY well taken care of by everyone. Thank you to John and the whole staff for making sure we were so superbly taken care of for our NYE celebrations!
1st time! Service and owner were extremely welcoming. Food was very good, especially the cavatelli! Perfectly made and cooked, typical Italian "past'asciutta" my wife had the pappardelle with veal, very very rich sauce! Our friends had the pok pok pork ribs as a starter and they wished they could have had it as a main meal, it was excellent. Pricing is hefty but Portions are generous. Good wines, all private imports, good selections at fair price range. Apparently, the burgers served at lunch are a must, will definitely try it next time.
Thanks John, we had a great time!!!
Perfect choice for holiday office lunch. Everyone found something they liked on the menu. Finished the meal with a nice coffee and lovely dessert. Very satisfying.
Unique wine list.
The menu and wine pairing , and service quality makes this place outstanding for business or friends get togethers .
Great neighbourhood restaurant with a nice selection of wines. Kitchen does very classy presentation with care. Nice ambience, service is impeccable.
Food quality & freshness is invariably very good. Service is friendly & efficient. Nice ambiance. For solo dining, the Counter service is excellent. I choose the mezzanine when I have a guest, & they always leave with a pleasant experience.
My best wishes for continuing deserving success.
Definitely wouldn't go back. Really over priced for what you get and you get charged extra for sharing anything. Cocktails at $15 each. No way!
They had some interested options/specials, but I went with the meatballs. The pasta was extra al dente, but still good. The other meal was the fish special. Good combination of flavours, but just a touch over done. Still quiet edible! Enjoyable and excellent service.
Always my favorite hangout whether it’s with your beau or family or friends I always leave with a smile ! Thank you !
Consistently good food. Attentive and friendly service. Only criticism is the noise level - it’s hard to carry on a conversation even at lunch.
Best Caesar salad going - generally great food. Love the booths!
Good food, cocktails & service. Only negative was the coffee. With a first rate coffee it would rate as a 5* in my book.
We had a very nice meal but found it a bit loud. It was hard to have a conversation.
The food was delicious and the waiters were very attentive.
Excellent food combined with excellent choice of wines and an excellent courteous and friendly service, in one word a memorable experience!
The food and service are always excellent at the Tavern, it does tend to get a bit noisy at lunch. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to any of my friends.
It was great!
Tavern on the Square was a very pleasant surprise for us. We chose it off a list of Montreal restaurants open Monday nights not expecting that much, and we ended up having one of the better dining experiences we've had in Montreal in the last few years. The food is very tasty, service attentive, and wine list well chosen. We'll definitely return on our next trip to Montreal!
The ambiance was great, the service very efficient and very friendly.
The food was good and since itt was lunch we did not have the usual noise.
Good location and I am ready to go back...
We hadn't been to the Tavern in many months but decided to try it again after hearing positive reviews from friends. As nearby residents, we were especially curious to see the result of recent renovations and some menu changes. We were impressed with our pasta dishes and endive salad. The Tavern now has more competition (3 upscale restaurants across the street) and must ensure that it remains a neighbourhood restaurant of quality and value.
The Tavern is a go to bistro for us. We were a group of 8 including some guests from Vancouver. The service was attentive although the waiter had a slightly patronizing attitude. I ordered my Caesar salad lightly dressed - it came drowning in dressing. I sent it back - my next salad had virtually no dressing. A bit of an exaggeration! Overall the food was average - not as good as in the past. And many favourites have been removed from the menu. Nice ambiance but not rushing back.
Tavern on the Square is my favorite restaurant in Montreal! Because the weather was glorious, everyone wanted to sit outside resulting in vary cramped tables. Food is always very well prepared, but the portions of halibut we ordered were pretty small as were the martinis and wine pourings. Inspite of all that, it's a great place for a fun evening.
We were given a table where they store all the clean glasses and plates and staff was constantly reaching behind our table over us to get clean glasses. Perhaps they should not put a table there at all. Paul the waiter tried hard but we sat down at 7.30 and ordered. Our appetizers arrived at 8.45 and the excuse was they were full . Main meal arrived at 9.30. If you cannot handle a full restaurant maybe higher more kitchen staff. Since this was birthday night they comped our desserts which was nice but the wait for food was much to long
Tavern is my go-to for great food, drinks and terrace. We go whenever we can!
All four of us enjoyed our meals. As one of us said "we all just about licked our plates!" Sitting on the terrasse was most pleasant, with trees around and the terrasse being far enough from the street not to feel the presence of passing cars. Service was excellent.
restaurant was very accommodating, moved us to a larger table. Service was very good, food was excellent.
We were visiting Montreal from Texas and just happened on Tavern! Our waiter, Greg was really skillful and wonderful (along with everyone else), the menu was artful and the items we chose were fabulous, we wanted to try it all... gorged on deserts. Maybe the best food experience for us in a long time. The lowest effort, highest satisfaction dinner....
Lovely staff. Great selection of Woodford Reserve.
The menu has been changed and we were very disappointed. Very expensive for what it was. Will not return.
Great spot for lunch on their terrace. Fabulous food and service. Never disappointed when I go to the Taverne!
