I went there for dinner. I had some meat stew, in Whisky sauce with mash potatoes. I was very good. The service was very good, and fast as well. I would recommend this place as well.

Delicious food, good atmosphere and well located. I recommend the cowboy Ribeye and a draft beer. It's traditional but tourist also... casual and fun.

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

restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

They are owned by the same family. The steakhouse made a change and added the supper menu, where the deli did not. If i were to chose I would take the steakhouse, great food and great staff
