We stayed nearby and wanted a restaurant in the Old Port area, because the weather was extremely wet and cold. Chose this restaurant because it was associated with the lofts hotel, but also because of other reviews. We are very pleased to advise that despite a short wait, we were seated beside a window and subsequently enjoyed a very good... More

We decided to have lunch here on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. We were looking for a quiet place close to the Notre Dame Basilica. It turned out to be an ideal choice. We were greeted warmly and seated next to the fireplace which was a nice surprise on a cold damp afternoon. Our waiter was wonderful!... More

Sitting by a natural wood burning fireplace on a snowy evening added an extra pleasure to a really good dinner of lobster bisque and steak for me and shrimp for my wife. The wait staff was friendly and efficient and the prices reasonable for a top class restaurant.

Enjoyed the atmosphere of Vieux-Port. Beautiful inside! We had a table by the window so we could people watch while we enjoyed the afternoon. We had the lobster bisque and calamari for starters- very good. We chose the bone in ribeye and filet mignon for entrees. Steaks were cooked as ordered and tasted great, and came with veggies and delicious... More

Went here last night based on good reviews and location close to our hotel. It exceeded expectations. Julian was very helpful on wine and champagne choices. Our waiter Angelo was great. On the spot with drinks and food recommendations. Food and desserts were good and with reasonable prices. Will return in the future!

We decided to take advantage of "Mtl a Table" restaurant week which ran this year from November 3 - 13th, 2016. It consisted of a 3 course meal for only $21.00! We booked our reservation online for Saturday night at 7:30 pm. Located in Old Montreal the Vieux- Port steakhouse has been around since 1983. The building itself dates back... More

This restaurant is in a beautiful old building. It is very popular. We were there on a Saturday night, and it was quite full. The steaks are cooked to perfection. The garlic mashed potatoes were delicious. Creme brûlée topped off a fine dinner. In comparison to other steak houses, the prices were excellent for food and wine choices. Our waiter... More

The restaurant was busy and the rather indifferent hostess sat us. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. Finally a waiter was able to take our wine order. We waited a bit more, then placed our order for our steaks. While we waited, a man at a table near us complained about the temperature of the food that he and... More

Dear Lavalady, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Vieux Port Steakhouse. With close to 1000 seats on three floors, we do get really busy sometimes. However, it will never justify the lack of service you seem to get that night. We cook steaks to our guests satisfaction. If you are served a steak that is... More

Great service, wonderful location. Escargot covered with gruyere and broiled...oh yeah. Like I said, so good we went two days in a row. Our waiter was excellent - made great suggestions and really made the evening more enjoyable. We both had steak, I would recommend the porterhouse and don't forget the escargot.

Thank ColonelTim

More than a restaurant, we're an institution. Quality cuts, cooked to perfection for over three decades. All our beef is AAA Canadian Certified and aged for at least 30 days.

You'll love the classic atmosphere, warm and welcoming. We're situated directly on St. Paul Street in a beautiful, century-old structure.

Inside, you're greeted by old stone walls, wood floors, cozy fireplaces and an attentive staff.
With a capacity of up to 1 000 and one of the nicest terraces in Old Montreal, we're the ideal venue for groups, weddings and other social gatherings.

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.
