Description: 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.

This place was highly recommended but we (party of 4) were all disappointed. The atmosphere and service were excellent but the steaks were just ok at best. Will not return, not worth the $.

Rarely do you experience a steak cooked to perfection when a restaurant is catering to a big group booking. As part of our Trafalgar Tour we dined at Vieux-Port Steakhouse in Montreal and the steak was melt in your mouth. Only fault was it was too big and I couldn't eat it all! We were a group of 54, there... More

We visit Montreal every year and always go to Vieux-Port Montreal for dinner and brunch. The food is amazing and the service exceptional! Anna our waitress for brunch on Sunday morning was incredible! A big smile greeted us with exceptional service to follow. The food always plentiful and hot. We will definitely go back! A Montreal must see and eat!

My husband and I had a memorable evening on their beautiful, and quiet terrace. The service was outstanding -- attentive, but invisible. The food was delicious. My husband says it was the best steak he's ever had -- wonderfully seasoned and cooked to perfection.

Great terrace dining with a highly-skilled staff. DO NOT EAT HERE on a budget. This was our anniversary dinner and after a couple of steaks, a bottle of bordeaux, cheesecakes and tip, it was nearly $200. Couldn't be happier though...and you can get out of there for cheaper than that! Top recommendation for a great steak and bottle of wine.

I had a steak with fries that was good. However, we have to wait for a long time and we were in a hurry. I also have to say that my friend ordered an osobucco dish and she didn't like it.

Looking for a place to duck in when rain threatened, but still wanting to enjoy the outdoors, we headed for the patio at the rear of Vieux-Port Steakhouse, which is partially covered. Service was friendly but not annoying, and very prompt. They were as pleased to serve us two appetizers, two drinks and a dessert as if we had ordered... More

Normally I wouldn't order seafood in a steakhouse, but it turned out to be the perfect choice. We had the seafood platter (min. two persons) which included scallops, shrimp, lobster and crab legs. We added raw oysters and an entrée of grilled halibut, all of which were fantastic. Our server was personable and very helpful with suggestions for items to... More

Loved the patio. A bit pricey, but food was great! Steak was had by 2 guests and they said it was like butter. Fish was very tasty.

A very popular place with the local crowd and the tourists. Not sure why. The food is less than mediocre. Service is casual. Nothing to write home about... Not worth the 45 minute wait to get a table in their backyard.
