We felt like we couldn't go home without trying Montreal's famous smoked meat, and Schwartz's was the perfect place to do so. The line outside moved quickly and we were seated at a tble we shared with a French-speaking family. We assumed the thing to get was a sandwich, which we shared. Not too fatty, excellent moist smoked meat. All... More

I had a smoked meat sandwich. The meat was good. I guess the big problem of this place is the lack of space. Very small place, so they put you in the same table with strangers. No place to move and of course, with small kids definitely no space. The waiter doesn't have a place to move in between the... More

I think it is the best smoked meat in or around Montreal. Not like anything the other restaurants offer. You have to sit wherever there is space even if it means you are with total strangers. They also have good liver and steaks and really good french fries. There is always a lineup so go early for lunch or dinner.

We heard about this place before coming to Montreal, was hailed by almost everyone as a "must visit" place and are we ever glad we did! just incredible and a definite must visit place.

the smoked meat was one of the perfect things I have ever eaten. And that's an italian spoken here. Don't put on your best suit to go there, you'll smell like fries when u get out: still, it will have been worth it.

This place was bragged up so much for me i had to go. Well after standing in a line for awhile and finally getting in needless to say just not what i expected. I didn't mind the sharing of table concept but it was the food. I was expecting something spectacular! It wasn't bad just average. would I go again...probably... More

I don't really understand the hype about this place. The food is nice and the waiter was doing a great job. I went with my boyfriend when we passed by one day and saw there was no line-up outside. I can only wonder why all those people are willing to wait outside for hours. Try to go in the week... More

Words can't describe the heavenly flavor of warm rare slightly fatty smoked meat between two thin slices of bread. Katz NYC take a lesson these guys are true meat artists. We even grab a couple of extra sandwiches for the ride back to NYC.
