Myself and a companion dined here on a busy Saturday night. Front section is quite spectacular, and would be my pick if you have a choice, as it's a bit less claustrophobic than the back. The saving grace of the back section is that you get a bit of a kitchen view. Our server was prompt, friendly, professional and fun,... More

On January 22nd, 2016, we went to Ferreira for dinner. It was a Friday night, and all the tables were booked, but we could sit at the bar and have our dinner there. My view was on the liquor bottles and a beautiful blue/white tile display behind them, showing Porto on the Douro. This evoked sweet memories (see my other... More

Truly one of the better restaurants in Montreal. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was loud and festive. I have 2 complaints: 1) there is no valet parking so I had to walk a few streets in the bitter cold to park my car. Not the end of the world but for a top of the line expensive restaurant... More

We went to Ferreira on a frightfully cold winter night, but the place was packed and buzzing, like always. The first thing to say about this restaurant is that it is a gorgeous place, really beautifully decorated. I wouldn't call it romantic, because they do pack you in and the noise level is high (although that's from the patrons alone,... More

very busy place. the quiet on the street is not indicative of the activity indoors. very popular. food was very good. a bit noisy so if you're looking for a romantic spot, this probably isn't it.

I wish this site had the ability to rate up to 10, since the four rating is a little lower than I would rate this restaurant. Giving a restaurant a perfect score is something I have run across so infrequently that I really want it to mean something. Not sure if it has something to do with my upbringing. Anyways,... More

The service was awful. Waited over an hour for my meal. Moreover, the food was not even good. There are plenty of better restaurants in Montreal.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood 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.
