The front desk at the L'Hotel suggested we dine here. We were tired after a long drive and just wanted something to eat. Oh My! We were greeted at the door with joyful enthusiasm and immediately led to our table. We were introduced to our server. He too was knowledgeable and was an excellent server! I have been disappointed by... More

Very nice restaurant. Offers a more sophisticated menu. I had the flank steak that was very tender. Pricing is is average that makes it easy for a group to go out for dinner and not cry when the bill comes. Staff are great and friendly.

Le Westin recommended this restaurant for lunch so we didn't hesitate to walk a mile from the hotel to try it. We were seated right away and the lady manager cheerfully told us the specials. I definitely enjoyed the duck confit and washed it down with their yummy lemon drop martini. Even the starter bread was fantastic ! Service was... More

Food, decor, service, all very good. We went for dinner pre show and our table was perfect. Good volume level for conversation despite the number of people dining. Excellent wine list, lots of food choices.

Place was recommended by our concierge so came with high expectations. Certainly not disappointed. Great atmosphere and excellent food. Hubby had the braised cheek and he never said a word until the end of dinner. He really enjoyed the meat! Amazing wine list and attentive waiters!

I ate here with a friend on a Saturday evening. We had been recommended to Holder by friends of her parents. We were both impressed with the mussels that we shared and we also each had a salad. It looked like it was a nice place to meet with friends for dinner and drinks as the atmosphere was very nice.... More

We had our best meal in Montreal here. (We also loved Lemeac, but enjoyed Holder even more.) It was casual enough that we felt comfortable with the four kids in our group (ages 4-9), and the menu worked fine for them (pasta primavera, mussels, fish & chips). The staff was also great with the kids. And everything we ate was... More

I highly reccomend trying this restaurant while visiting Montreal. The service is great. Everyone who works there is super friendly and highly attentive to all of your needs. For an appetizer I had the calamari. It was really good. I had the duck confit for dinner and it was delicious.
