The steak was good but being part of a group we were shuffled off to the top floor where it was very warm. The meal was standard steak-frites with a vinaigrette dressing on the salad. The bread was good- ciabatta style rolls.

Service was very good and accomodating. The New York was cooked fine, but was much too thin for my taste. I personally don't want a bone in it either. Atmosphere was terrific.

picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St.
Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums,
festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a
celebrated part of the city that explodes into
fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its
centre, street performers and artists compete with

More than a restaurant, we're an institution. Quality cuts, cooked to perfection for over three decades. All our beef is AAA Canadian Certified and aged for at least 30 days.

You'll love the classic atmosphere, warm and welcoming. We're situated directly on St. Paul Street in a beautiful, century-old structure.

Inside, you're greeted by old stone walls, wood floors, cozy fireplaces and an attentive staff.
With a capacity of up to 1 000 and one of the nicest terraces in Old Montreal, we're the ideal venue for groups, weddings and other social gatherings.
