I have never seen a cheesecake so big. And for only $7.00. Portions are very large for the price. Good food. Good service.

In ongoing quest for Montreal smoked meat, I went into Reubans for a smoked meat platter. This has to be the best place I have yet!

My girlfriend and I got the German sausage appetizer and the smoked Reuben Sandwich for a main and were thoroughly pleased with the serving sizes and the quality of the dishes. The meat on the sandwich was amazing and piled high and the sauce they put on it matches it perfectly. We spent about $45 for an appetizer, a main... More

Eleven of us met for lunch at Reuben's, after 4 hours of above ground and underground tours of Old Montreal and the downtown area in the January freeze. Walking into Reuben's was a wonderful stop, with a pleasant staff awaiting our arrival. The meat sandwich special + poutine was pure heaven. And the pickles reminded me of old school New... More

We went to Reubens with our family. The restaurant was very busy, but the staff were great at the door and at the table. Very courteous, attentive and super efficient. We had the smoked meat sandwiches, reuben sandwich, salad and cheesecake - which were all perfect and just what you'd hope for at a restaurant of this type. Would definitely... More

We wanted casual dining before going to a game at the Bell Centre. We were a party of 8 seated at 2 tables. The food wasn't coming it out, so with out even asking, we were given complementary soup-delicious! At our request, they brought the food and the bill together, so we could make our game. Food great!. Smoke meat... More
