Read the reviews ! Very Noisy ! Small tables ! If the table doesn't have enough room for the dishes you will be serving for 2 persons then the freaking table is TOO SMALL !!! Too loud for normal conversation, crowded, food sub-par. Duck Confit way too salty. Mussels had no taste of flavour of the broth. Chez Vincent in... More

Vibrant dinner atmosphere with great service and even better selections on the menu. My work colleagues and I arrived in Montreal in time for dinner, and selected Holder, which is 6 blocks from our hotel. The 5 of us enjoyed the oysters (could have ordered another dozen, they were magnificent), and the staff even obliged my very American request for... More

Great hospitality, amazing appetizers. Seems to be a hot spot. Bustling place as people were still coming in for dinner around 9:30/10pm. Great bar area as well. No cocktail list, but waiter said it was because they had a full bar and could make up any sort of concoction you wanted!

A friend who lives in Montreal recommended this over other restaurants that were more highly rated on Trip Adviser. He said it was not as well known, not quite as expensive but every bit as good, if not better. He was so right. Service was excellent. Wine and cocktail were fine. My filet mignon special was fantastic. Tender, perfectly prepared... More

Our dinner was delicious..great menu options and wine selection. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself was beautifully decorated..not too small but not too large, either. We watched the snow falling through the windows while we ate..very romantic. The restaurant is just blocks away from the metro stop.

We stumbled upon Holder Restaurant (French cuisine) prior to our trip, when I was reading reviews and making calls, seeing what would have last minute reservations for dinner New Years Eve. I had the chance to speak to a couple of Holder's staff on the phone twice, and both times they were very cordial and friendly. When we arrive at... More

Went for a date with my boyfriend to Holder's. Food and wine selection is amazing. Service is great! Would definitely go back. Reservations is suggested as it can get quite busy!

We ate dinner here one night in December on a three-day visit to Montreal. The place was almost jam-packed, but we were still able to get a table for two. I suggest making a reservation, if you can. The atmosphere was lively, but comfortable. A good spot for a date, but not necessarily intimate or romantic. The wait staff were... More

The best way to end 2014 is with a family dinner at Holder's.Located in a 1921 skyscaper in old montreal,this classy old world location is easy to find and has plenty of parking near by.As we walked in,we were quickly greeted by a smiling maitre D who showed us to our table.Service was fast and professional,giving us time to chose...
