Was sufficiently impressed to patronize the place two days in a row. Meals are excellent and service was great. For my next visit, I will go on a diet before, so I can indulge in their to-kill-for dessert selection.

I've tried the sandwich that is in the photo (roasted meet with cheese served in the black bread). It is impossible to describe how wonderful the taste was. It came with French fries and a coleslaw salad. It was -8 Celsius outside but I couldn't miss the beer with my sandwich. The staff was very friendly and the cost is... More

I have been going to this Reuben restaurant for some time. And this is the first time. That its below standard. I am not sure if they changed management. But something has definitely changed. The food this time. Was sub par. The toast that they served where burnt. And the food was cold. As for the service. It has definitely... More

We're really surprised to hear about your recent visit SD! The experience you describe does not sound like the type of service (or meal!) we seek to provide to our guests. Can you confirm that you were in fact at our location (1116 St. Catherine near Peel) and not another on the same street by a similar name? More

Came to Montreal, had to try some Montreal smoked meat. Went to Reuben's and got the original smoked meat sandwich and it was delicious. Great meat, great bread and great sauerkraut. Had it with poutine, the fries are like McDonald's fries but the poutine was good. Got the strawberry cheesecake for dessert which was also really good. I'd recommend this... More

I was a little nervous to try the smoked meat, but I trusted my Canadian friend and went for it. It was delicious, tender meat and was perfect on the rye bread with a little mustard.

Smoke meat was juicy and tender and tasty. Got there before noon and didn't have to wait. Portion was big and price was ok.

There are lots of options for smoked meat in Montreal, but this is my favourite. The meat is piled high and overflowing the fresh rye bread. You can decide how fatty you like the meat - and the side of fries is almost obscene they give you so many. (A great problem to have!) Served with a cold beer and... More

After many trips to Montreal, I convinced my health-conscious wife to give the famous smoked meat sandwich a try. We are accustomed to American Jewish Deli style corned beef offered in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles among other areas. Reuben's has a wonderful atmosphere and fun vibe and is pretty fancy for a deli that also offers higher priced... More

I had high hopes for my experience the moment I walked into Reubens. The restaurant had a busy, downtown vibe which was encouraging. We were seated quickly and the food that went by looked great. I wanted to compare smoked meat sandwiches so eagerly ordered up a small which came with a poppyseed bun (nice touch) instead of the usual... More

If your visit was indeed with us at 1116 St. Catherine O. (and not at an establishment on the same street with a similar name), we are surprised to hear of the poor service you received, Susan. What you describe is definitely not how our staff treats our guests. Cold fries are also not to our standard. We hope you... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
