Best steaks in town

Sometimes too crowed but excellent steak house . A bit classic in style. Not a place to go if you want fish.

This is my second visit to Gibby's in 2 years only because I am unable to travel to Montreal more often. I love the heritage of this building, I could be wrong but I believe it was built in late 1600's or early 1700's. You should make reservations as much in advance as possible as this place is always full... More

Very popular place. Crowded. Appeal to mass market with money to spend. No accessible bathrooms. Had one but closed it. We refuse invitations to Gibby's despite its very nice setting. Food (e.g. Steaks and seafood) easily available elsewhere in town

Dated decor, uninventive menu and they overcooked my steak. How can a steak house over cook a steak. Service was good and the baked potato was great.

If you miss steakhouses from the 1970's, this is your place! Starter options with the main course are gazpacho, a tired salad and a tomato and onion salad. You then get a lemon sorbet palate cleanser before the main course! The only thing missing was Bee Gees background music. The steaks were large but of poor quality in that they... More

We visited Montreal for one night and spent our time in Old Montreal. We heard this restaurant had good food and we decided to try it out. The building is 300 years old and you can see the original stone on the inside. Our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu. We ordered drinks and bread and butter... More

Can't say enough about this place. Everything was absolutely amazing. Waitress was soooo nice and friendly. My hubby had the most expensive steak, and I had the least expensive steak and both were AMAZING. Can't beat the French onion soup.

We went back to Gibby's for a birthday dinner, after not going for many years due to a previous not so pleasant visit. The service was excellent, not too rushed or slow. I started with the escargot - ok, not rubbery but the butter was very salty, I would not order this again. Next up was the Gibby's salad, this... More

We were here for a family dinner for my niece's 40th birthday celebration. This was my first time here, but my family has been here before. My sister raves about the French onion soup. I didn't get that because I knew that the entrée comes with a salad, and I knew that I would be too full. The house salad... More

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.
