Out for dinner in Old Montreal

Loved this restaurant, charming and fun. Older building, lots of people coming by horse and carriage, good wine, and a dish full of pickles for your table. Nice night out.

Went to Gibbys on Saturday August 15th. Had reservations for 6:30 and were seated on arrival. We were seated downstairs (so review only reflects downstairs environment). The upstairs looked much more spacious and by what the gentlemen who came in before us said to the host I think the upstairs must be the place to be (he refused to be... More

Our Canadian friends recommended Gibby's in Old Montreal. A $10 cab ride from Hilton Garden Inn on W. Sherbrooke (near McGill Univ). The historic building offers a wonderful, unique, relaxing ambiance. We were a party of 8 and were seated at a round table perfectly suited for a group this size. The staff was professional, attentive and non-obtrusive. In addition... More

We took a cab down to Gibbys. It was cool to drive up. Looks like an old stone building. Lots of character. A gentleman steps out of a door and directs you to the entrance to the restaurant. Low lighting stone walls......ahhhh nice start. But when we get in and seated, things start to slip. Nobody addresses us for a... More

We go to Gibby's often on our semi-annual visits to Montreal to see family. It's always a touristy place, and very busy during vacation times, but it does offer great tasting food and better than average service. This time though, we were given a table downstairs and ended up next to two really loud, drunken groups (6 at one table... More

There were many superlatives for the food the night we ate at Gibby's. We were in town on the way to a FIFA Women's World Cup game. We went to Gibby's given its location to our hotel and tripadvisor reviews. My son, who is a very picky eater, ordered the fillet mignon. He rarely eats beef. He said it was... More

Gibby's is a Montreal must do (at least once). A notch above the rest with good food, great service and you feel as though you part of the richy rich club! :-)) It's pricey but worth being spoiled and indulged for an evening. Give a try you won't be disappointed.

We were here for a business dinner. Easy enough to make a reservation thru hotel and we had an excellent meal. I actually quite enjoyed the standard salad starter, and then followed up with a mustard encrusted steak. Very good.

A very unusual historic restaurant in the old city. Reservations are necessary here. Food was very good and wait staff exceptional. Steak and seafood dishes the best.

Went to Gibbys in Old Montreal with a very large (40+) group and they seated us in the basement rooms. The service and food was very good. I would like to have visited with a smaller party and seen the main part of the restaurant. It is in a historic stone built building.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and 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 center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
