Went for breakfast and the food portions were huge the price was very reasonable and the service was excellent. The food and service was so good that we went back again for the second day for breakfast. The restaurant was very clean and tastefully decorated. Awesome place.

Stopped by the last week of February, amazing/massive smoked meat sandwiches, the booths are small but the plates are big; one of the best smoked meat sandwiches I have had, fries were good, slaw was a little odd but not bad; service was good from start to finish; we took half back to the hotel for a late night snack....

Rubens is a Montreal hot spot so be prepared to wait a few minutes for a table. The wait was under 10 minutes and we were seated very promptly as tables were cleaned. I enjoyed the classic Ruben and it was delicious. The serving size is very generous. I had the fries with my Ruben but I would get a... More

Keep in mind that there are two Reuben's on this street, about 1.5 blocks apart and they are very different. This one is 888 rue Ste-Catherine (the other one is on 1116 rue Ste-Catherine). Very easy to confuse them. This was the best restaurant meal I ever had. 12 ounce New York steak with mushrooms, starter ceasar salad and fries... More

not fancy of course but perfect for what it is... Smoked meat Mecca. Service was fast and efficient. Sandwiches with perfect not goopy cole slaw, thin crisp fries, good selection of draft beers. The desserts looked great but we had to leave to get to the Bell Centre.

It was my first visit to Reuben's going there on their reputation alone, I will add my total delight to the chorus of other reviewers who feel the same way about this restaurant, Great atmosphere, excellent service but lets get to the food. You will never have a better smoke meat served with ample tasty french fries the mandatory pickle... More

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!
