Tavern on the Square
Great lunch outdoors. Very nice lunch special.
We thoroughly enjoyed dining on the terrasse; the lobster risotto was spectacular. Westmount is lucky to have the Taverne as a local institution!
We were 5 ladies out for dinner to celebrate my 60th birthday. The evening started out with a few issues regarding the dietary restrictions of one of my friends and the refusal of the management to accommodate a simple request of putting the carmelized onions on the side of the burger rather than on top. Finally the chef/owner came out himself and asked how he could satisfy the request. He absolutely redeemed himself and the staff by accommodating all our requests. The wait staff couldn’t do enough for us. The food was delicious! My slice of birthday cake and coffees were on the house! Overall it was a lovely evening. Thanks John for being such a lovely host!
Went there for my birthday and unless you don't work and show up at 5 pm all terrace is full. It's quite a pity as they don't take reservations for the terrace which is a pity as it would bring more value to the customer - customer remembers. The place was really full and understaffed, waiters tried their best but some orders were incorrect due to the chaos. Food is good but was better 4 years ago - I used to come often. I hope to have a better experience next time. The wine list and choice is outstanding, I liked the orange wine.
Always a favorite, never disappointing with consistently friendly service.
We were a group of 7 ladies out for girls night. We had an excellent meal - salmon - halibut and chicken were all enjoyed. One friend has a gluten intolerance and she was accommodated. It’s generally so loud at the Tavern but last night we could actually talk and be heard without yelling - so refreshing!
Just not worth the money. Very expensive for the portions.
great cocktails, tasty apps and fantastic pasta meals. Would have like to try the burger too!
We were treated to a delicious experience with wonderful service care and attention - the food was beyond great
I usually go to the Monkland location but was recommended to try this one because it is quieter.
It was quieter but food was not as good and it was quite pricey for food that was just ok.
Toujours égal à lui-même: impeccable!
I had a great experience can’t wait to go back!
Tavern is our go to spot, we go there often. The food is always consistent and delicious and the service is excellent!
The food was less than adequate-quite a bit different than my previous experience at this restaurant.
The waiter removed the plates before all od the diners were finished eating......
Service was excellent - server Kayleigh was great, could not have been better.
Food was delicious but sadly main course was not delivered sufficiently warmed and so I ended up eating a cold meal . . . very unfortunate considering the price.
Table in the centre SUPER noisy.
Impeccable as always.
M’y meal was fine. My guest burger was undercooked had to be redone.
Very good food, great service! Enjoyed the atmosphere!
Noisy toddler at the next table was a damper on the atmosphere even for this type of local neighbourhood restaurant.
Radicchio salad gluey and heavy.
Halibut fresh and nicely prepared.
Limited menu .
Always have a nice meal!
It's a bit pricey for what you get, but it is Westmount after all. Still, one plate of rigatoni, one shrimp wrap, a fizzy water and a glass of red, all came to about $75. So almost $90 with tax and tip in. No salad, no starter, no dessert, no coffee.
Not exactly an everyday place, especially with Gladstone gastropub across the street, among others.
We ate amazing food, the service was excellent and the place was buzzing ... we had a great and super fun evening!
Noise level became excessive and difficult to tolerate as evening continued on.
We let our server know about our theatre plans and we were finished in good time. We shared a salad, a pasta dish, and a dessert, with wine, and found it to be plenty for the two of us. The server could have done a better job of facilitating the sharing of the dishes, but we managed anyways. Excellent food. Will certainly visit again.
It was a date with my daughter.
The minute I stepped into the restaurant I felt like home!!! The ambiance, the service, the food and wine selection. Just perfect!! Stephen and John make sure you have an unforgettable dining experience! All to say, it was an amazing night dining in Montreal! 😁👌🏼😎
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.
