Stopped in for appetizers and drinks just to say we had been in there because of the 300 year history of the place. Nice wine list. A little sad that the bar menu was different than what was online. We had kids with us and...didn’t want to spend a fortune. The charcuterie tray was delicious! We tried the octopus and the salmon mousse. All were excellent. Got the Cornish hen for the little kids to share and it was also excellent! Overall, spent more than I had hoped to but the food and service was very good!More

Very poor management and overall philosophy. If you are going in a group of 12 people and you are not interested the limited choices, over priced group menu, you better reconsider. They won’t accommodate their customers and ironically, they will leave you starve before they...accept to let you choose from the regular menu. The restaurant was half empty and we were 12 people filling that half among others. I offered that I would take the empty table on the side, by my self, so I could, just like any other customers, choose from the regular menu. Amazingly, the answer was no, sorry, we can’t do that. Completely illogical and insulting. I stayed because it was my friend birthday, otherwise, I would have left. If you are paying 75$ +tx /person for a meal only, the minimum expectation is to be able to choose what you want to eat and enjoy the meal. They do not have a philosophy and an attitude that would be expected from an higher end restaurant as they attempt to present themself. Montreal has many wonderful restaurants that will host you like you deserve.More

With a couple of hours to kill before the flight a nice meal is just the ticket. Inside the airport there are a few to choose, I recommend this one. The meal is not cheap and there is not lots of it but it was...tasty and cooked well. Sylvain served us and had a great banter for our entertainment. This place is a good stop if you’re hungry waiting for your departure.More

Took the chance of getting our starter as part of the Oystermania festival - rarely otherwise do we have a dozen oysters each [normally would share the dozen] but then carried on with some great main courses - the duck especially was superb - and...deserts. Excellent wine choices too. Lovely atmospheric dining room, very friendly and attentive staff but in a relaxed 'unstuffy' way.More

We were staying at the hotel adjoining our hotel. We were greeted by our waiter, Charles. We ordered the beef for two. There were 2 other couples with us . After taking our orders , it took over a half an hour to get our...meal. When it arrived , the sliced beef was enough to feed 6! Unfortunately the meat was very tough to cut even with a steak knife. The mashed potatoes mixed with cheese were very stringy. Unfortunately, no one came back to check our satisfaction of our meal. They just came over and removed our servings which were hardly touched. We were not asked if we wanted the leftovers. Overall for over $250 the meal was a big disappointment.More

My husband and I decided to go back to Auberge Saint-Gabriel to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary where we got married back in 2009. At the beginning of the meal, when asked if this was our firt visit, I hinted that we were celebrating...our anniversary. We ordered cocktails and starters, then our dinner. As we got ready to order desserts, we were offered a nice treat on the house as a celebration, thanks to a great attentive gesture from our waiter. We were already pleased with the food and atmosphere, but this made our experience ultra special and memorable. Thank you for the lovely evening!More

We were a group of 21 people, a restaurant's challenge. L'Auberge Saint-Gabriel met the challenge with elegance, graciousness, speed and delicious cuisine. They suggested that we choose from a prix-fixe menu, but were happy to substitute anything off their regular menu. I had halibut tartar,...Cornish game hen from the fire spit and skipped the incredible desserts. The halibut was the most wonderful mixture of fish and tropical fruit, memorable. The Cornish game hen, were tasty, but I think they were on the large size. Others in our group enjoyed the cauliflower, also cooked on the spit. That looked marvelous, served in a sauce with garbanzo beans. It's a beautiful restaurant...I would go back for sure.More
