This was a fabulous evening in downtown Montreal. 6 course meal, excellent table service, prompt, accurate and friendly. The two shows , one a jazz performance and one a blues were both wonderful. The blues singer was energetic, got the audience involved and really appeared to be enjoying her evening. The Jazz players were professional musicians, the base, piano and... More

Very entertaining evening. Food was not great, kind of expensive but interesting atmosphere and superb music. Cover charge in addition to the cost of meal. Saw Paul Arthur and Raisin' Cain Blues and they rocked it!

The atmosphere of the restaurant was great and the drinks were good but the food was mediocre and the service was horrible. Our server barely came around to see how we were doing or to refill our waters. We had to wait until our food was served to request another drink.

We went to the House of Jazz last night (Sunday of Labour Day Weekend) because we had gone there years ago and remembered having a great time with great jazz. We are both jazz fans and we know good jazz when we hear it. I hope it was an off night because the show was pretty dull. Food was just... More

Fine is good and music entertainment was terrific. Beware of the Groupon deal, they charge additional taxes for the value of the meal instead of what you paid on Groupon!!! Not right according to details on Groupon Certificate.

The place was pretty much full, parking was right at the door. The service was good and the food was excellent and so was the show. The only negative, if I can call it that, they had 7 drinks on the list of aperitifs and they were out 3 of them...but still had a very good evening. Will be going... More

Last week, my bag was stolen in the table of this restaurant, within a few minutes of my arrival with friends, when we went to toilets. Although my friend was sitting in the table reading the menu, it happened like a wind by a thief. Surprisingly, we did not have any adequate support from the staff, and could not access... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
