“A Wonderful Taste of Montreal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I am travelling with a group of students from Alberta, and at the recommendation of our tour bus driver, we stopped at Brisket Montreal for lunch today - a Friday, at the peak of the lunch rush, without a reservation. The place was packed and there were 23 of us. It was a long shot, and we thought we would surely be out of luck, but the staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Within 10 minutes, our server had us seated and offered us a group menu including a great meal, dessert, and drink. The food was exceptional and so was the service. We received great value for our money. It was the first time most of my students had tried smoked meat, and we all really enjoyed it. We all liked the atmosphere, too. Brisket Montreal will certainly be a required stop on all my future visits to Montreal (but I will make a reservation well in advance), and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a unique Montreal experience!

“Good smoked meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

I had a good time and would definitely go again for the smoked meat. The service left a little to be desired, but the prices were decent and I would recommend it

“Just what the doctor didn't order”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

You only live once and this place is work the visit. The menu is extensive. We enjoyed the hospitality of Gaby (our server). She was patient as we took a long time to decide. She was also helpful with recommendation. We will certainly go back.

“Had to try this, and it is genuine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Got the smoked meat and pig knuckles platter, and I guess I got what I asked for. Large portion of two meats, with poutine on the side and a portion of spicy cole slaw. Was able to try several QC specialties all on one plate ! Food was high quality and exactly as advertised. Service was friendly. Local, pub-type of atmosphere - but quiet, not rowdy. Would be suitable for people of all ages.
