This is the place to eat the best smoked meat in Montreal, very trendy atmosphere as well as greart food. My partner and I returned for a second time, he ordered the smoked meat sandwich again and I ordered the Spaghetti home cooked marinara sauce with a thick topping of melted mozzerarella cheese, wow great food. Great service, the staff... More

We loved it! Great smoked meat sandwiches and the poutine was delicious. Good for families, too -- we visited with our toddler, and the staff was very accommodating.

Had dinner in this restaurant on our last night in Montreal, the steaks were cooked to perfection and the cheesecake desserts were to die for, what more can be said except to say that you get what you pay for and this restaurant is worth every penny spent. A fine meal to round off our visit to Canada.

Went yesterday with family whilst on holiday. Had the smoke turkey sandwich with fries which was huge and tasty. The famous Cheesecake for dessert is worthy of the name. Add to that friendly and helpful service from the waitresses, and you have a place that deserves the hype. A trip is highly recommended

They have a huge menu with something for everyone! The service is top notch. The reuben sandwich and the turkey melt sandwich were huge. The dijon chicken strips were delicious as well. Restaurant was not cheap, but I liked it a lot.

We loved this restaurant so much that we went back twice in five days. We had been told by a friend that another deli was a "MUST". We drove there and saw a line that stretched around the block, so we went to Reuben's. We were not disappointed. I don't know how any deli could be better! The service was... More

Was in Montreal this past weekend and wanted some smoked meat. Decided to head to Reuben's. Modern retro feel to the place and the air was electric - music playing, people talking, staff weaving effortlessly around. The evening we were there, mostly a 20 something crowd but there were people of all ages. For those with kids, Reuben's has a... More

I ordered one of the beef sandwiches from the photos and it was delicious. Definitely would recommend for someone on an empty stomach as it will fill you up!

Great experience at Reuben's. We were a very large group for work and the service was great considering the 3 large tables they had to handle. almost everyone at my table got the famous smoked meat sandwich and no one was disappointed. Good bang for your buck and I'm sure most will be stuffed finishing their stacked sandwich. Great vibe.

My husband and I ate here during our trip to Montreal. He LOVED the smoked meat sandwich. I had a traditional salad. Food good, service awesome in a retro environment. A good time.
