It's been a while since I was in Montreal, and I had a visit to Schwartz's high on my list. It turned out that our hotel wasn't in the right neighbourhood for that, but another family member said that he had heard great things about Reuben's, so I somewhat reluctantly went there with the group. It was fabulous! You have... More

Whenever I am in Montreal it is a must to pass by Reuben's. Always packed at lunch and diner, quality one the best in town, big plates, friendly staff, large selection of food, very tasty and excellent desert. For sure you will be getting what you are paying for.

Right downtown for easy eating. Staff friendly, restaurant clean, sandwiches piled high, extensive menu if you don't want smoked meat. Close to all venues, used it before a hockey game at the Bell centre.

Yum is about all I need to say here - although this restaurant offers so much more - beautiful desserts, great service, fun atmosphere. A must-go-to while in Montreal!

My husband and I ate lunch here while vacationing for a couple of days in Montreal in August 2014. The restaurant is conveniently located on the main street in downtown Montreal. It was very busy when we were there. The wait staff were friendly and the service was good. The booth seating was comfortable, but we were seated right near... More

Went for breakfast and loved it. Warm Montreal smoked meat with eggs and seasoned hash browns. I'd go back next time in the area for certain. I only wish I had time for smoked meat on rye! Go, excellent deli.
