NYE Dinner

We arrived in Montral mid-afternoon on NYE without dinner plans! We had heard of Vieux-Port Steakhouse and were able to secure a last [early] minute reservation. When we arrived the restaurant was pretty empty but it very quickly filled up. Food was good - try the mozzarella, pesto roasted pepper... read more

our waiter Jimmy was phenomenal! Food was beyond amazing! The BEST steak I have ever had! My husband Gene had the bison ribeye that Jimmy recommended and I had the ribeye. They did not disappoint. Jimmy made sure that every detail of our meal was perfect! From sitting by the fireplace and window to making wonderful suggestions for our meal!... More

Been here several times, even considered having my wedding there. Food is great, ambiance is beautiful in all seasons. In summer there is a wonderful terrace in the back to enjoy, great for a party. Pricey but after all, considering the location and the great food, it is completely reasonable.

Disappointing! this used to be a top notch weekly event, Service was and is top notch, our water was there to top up water and pour fresh coffe. Sausages were good, scrambled eggs were tasteless and rubbery, bacon could have used more cooking, breakfast potatoes were far from a master piece a few onions, little garlic maybe some green peppers...

This place is fantastic on so many levels! Firstly the wood burning fireplaces were lovely during dinner. Our server, Monosh, was so personable, attentive and knowledgeable. He really made this such a great experience for us. We had oysters, foie Gras (so incredible we ordered a second one), caeser salad and split the 22oz T-bone steak (perfectly cooked) We had... More

We arrived very early for our reservation and they seated us right away on the top floor wherever we wanted. We stayed almost 2 hours talking and eating while watching it snow outside and we didn't feel rushed at all. We took our time ordering food and drinks which were on point. The decor was nice with soft colors and... More

We made reservations, and upon arriving thought we'd have to wait for hours to be served. The restaurant was packed to capacity, but handled it very well. Our food was very good. Great selection of steaks and seafood. Service was good. The restaurant was noisy, but that can be expected on an evening like that. Great choice that doesn't feel... More

We ask 3 to try all of them, all of them were horrible! Not going again, the restaurant its just beautiful, nice decorations and friendly staff, but the food....... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
