Description: There's a reason Forbes Magazine named us one of the Top 10 Steakhouses in the world. And why Moishes has become a Montreal favorite that has endured over 70 years. We think it's the authentic taste of each one of the old world favorites on our menu. If you're an old friend, welcome back. We're always delighted to see you. We couldn't have come this far without you. If you haven't yet, we warmly invite you to discover the taste for yourself, at our restaurant overlooking historic Saint-Laurent Boulevard (The Main.) Ce n’est pas par hasard que le magazine Forbes nous ait désigné comme l’une des 10 meilleures maisons de steak au monde. Et que Moishes soit l’un des hauts lieux de la gastronomie montréalaise depuis plus de 70 ans. D’après nous, c’est à cause du goût authentique des mets à l’ancienne qui figurent sur notre menu. Si vous êtes un habitué du restaurant, ce sera un plaisir de vous revoir. Nous sommes toujours ravis de vous accueillir.

“Large portions, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Great steak house that has something for everyone. We had a business dinner there. The staff was very attentive. The grilled food was delicious although the portions were far too large. Not too formal. Would go back again.

“Best Steak In Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love their steaks, the rib is fantastic but all their steaks are great. The monte carlo potatoes are super but so are the potato latkes. The pickles and cole slaw which come with every meal are delicious. And on the way out every child at heart digs into the lazy susan candy array. The service is a bit too fast but excellent with pleasant friendly servers.

“Total over hype. Better suited to bus tourists”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The hub bub about this place is missed placed. Maybe thirty years ago this was a place to dine but today it's old, worn out and living off memories from the past. The place needs a dust pan and mop, it needs staff training and incentives based on service and being friendly. The food was ok, the wine was way over priced and the service was slow.....which was weird since they tried to give us the bums rush at the beginning of our time there. It's the first time I have ever left a penny tip! Really sorry we wasted a dinner here during our short stay in a great city.

“No idea what all the commotion is about. Great pickles, beautiful restaurant, excellent service, food is nothing special at all ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I was there with a group of 9 people for dinner on a Saturday night. The restaurant was almost full, you'd think it was "the" place to go for steak. Well, the bread was great, pickles fantastic, service was very good - unfortunately they were really weak in the steak department.

It took two attempts before they got the steak cooked to the right temperature (which isn't the bad part). Then, after sending back the first steak because it was really dry and tough, they brought out a second (different cut) and that too was no more (arguably less) impressive than what you'd get from a chain steak restaurant. The sentiment was mostly shared with others in our group.

Disappointing and overpriced for the quality of food. There are much better steakhouses for the price.

It's really too bad because they have great potential and the service staff are terrific. Hope their food changes for the better.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I started going to Moishes in the 1960's.The quality of the meat is excellent,the service is great,you never get a bad meal but it is an expensive resto,but if you want to splurge,you can't go wrong.Also they
have a parking in the back which is great.
