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

If you're looking for good service, amazing smoked meat and a great atmosphere this is the place to go! I would definitely go again! The food was amazing, I definitely recommend the original burger! There are actually two locations only blocks away from each other on Sainte-Catherine St. Needless to say, if your in Montreal this should be everyone's first... 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.

I ordered the smoked meat plate on sale at $9.99. The smoked meat was average, nothing special, came with fries and a little portion of coleslaw. The portion was so small. Why even bother? Honestly, in my opinion, not worth the price. I did not enjoy this meal!

You can't be a completely savvy tourist if you don't stop by for one of these -- with your choice of lean, medium or fatty beef. Make this you big meal of the day. Even better with a Canadian beer and fries.

Quite a long time ago (1980's) I would come here fairly regularly and until last week have not had the opportunity to return. The Smoked Meat and Cheesecake hasn't changed and is every bit as good as I remember and should the opportunity present itself again I will be back.
