Beautiful venue. Food was poorly prepared. Cornish hen was extraordinarily dry. Lamb underdone. Sea bream bony and wet. No attention from wait staff. Go to Holder and avoid this place.

Come for the service not the food. Everything was bland and boring. Moderate prices for Montreal but not cheap. Respectable wine list was the bright spot. Bathrooms are sad in need of freshening up. Not fine dining by any stretch. You can do better.

Hi, We're sorry to hear that you didn't like the food we offer. Our chefs always try to keep the menu interesting and the food delicious, but sadly, we can't please everybody. Thank you for giving us a try.

We had a “late” dinner here, out on their patio,and enjoyed the daylight fading to night around 8:30-9pm. It was quiet because it is on a side street. The restaurant is quite large inside with several rooms and can accommodate groups. The food was absolutely...More

We were in a group of 12. The food was just OK but overpriced. Three couples who ordered the $140 steak for two on the menu ended up with diarrhea or cramps. A very strange coincidence.

Nice large group dinner while attending a small conference. Service was excellent, and the food was fantastic! I’ve been to many large group (75+) dinners, and this by far exceeds them all regarding the food. A unique location and presumably equally great for small groups.

Premiere auberge d’Amerique du Nord et premier debit de boisson legal au pays, l’Auberge Saint-Gabriel a deja abrite l’imprimerie du journal Le Patriote et meme un poste de traite de fourrures avant de devenir un des hauts lieux de la gastronomie quebecoise et l’une des destinations les plus tendances de la vie nocturne montrealaise. Pour un verre sur la terrasse ou a l’un des bars intimes, un repas dans l’opulente salle a manger ou un evenement prive dans l’un des somptueux halls, l’Auberge est la complice de toutes les meilleures soirees depuis plus de 300 ans. Acquise en 1987 par la famille Bolay, l’Auberge Saint-Gabriel a conquis ses lettres de noblesse. Ses nouveaux proprietaires, Marc Bolay, Garou et Guy Laliberte, en ont fait un vrai joyau, transformant ce temoin du passe en une incarnation resolument moderne a coups de clins d’œil ludiques sur l’histoire.
