“Convenient location, nice service, ok food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Have been here a billion times. I love Reuben's mainly for location, service and reliability of what you get. The portions are huge but the prices are a bit inflated. The smoked meat I think has gotten a bit better over the years. Has to be a fatty cut for it to be good imo. The coleslaw is lacking. Others have had the poutine, which is among the weaker choices in Montreal (McCain fries with admittedly good curds). Location is perfect for tourists (Peel and Ste-Catherine). Staff is friendly, kind and helpful. A solid 4/5 in my books.

“Delicious But Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Great smoked meat sandwich - piled high on good rye bread & served with fries, but very pricey at $14.99. Then, swap out the fries for a green salad and the price goes up $5, swap them out for a caesar salad and the price goes up $6 (all plus tax). Yes, the portions are a good size and the food is good, but it's too much money for a sandwich. Also the music is ridiculously loud - we could barely hear each other in our tiny booth.

“gotta have smoked meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We were told the thing to eat in Montreal is smoked meat. Our hotel recommended Reubens. I had the smoked meat sandwich with fries & coleslaw. The sandwich is stacked high was meat and was very good. The desserts looked wonderful, but I was too full. Great location downtown, easy to find.
