Went here with family, great service, good bistro food, nice atmosphere. Affordable wine list, steak frites was delicious, other standout was definitely the duck confit and the desserts. Not a complete standout because it was rather expected, but not in any way a disappointment.

There is a dearth of good breakfast places in Old Montreal. Holder is a keeper. Solid brunch menu. Good coffee. We had the eggs Benedict and the French toast. Beautiful presentation and delicious. The breakfast potatoes were divine. Our service was very good. All in all Holder is a real stand out.

Very cool, downtown place, very good food, very trendy - but at lunch time can get pretty noisy ! - place to be seen!

Having had a large lunch earlier in the day, I settled for a soup and salad. The French onion soup arrived piping hot with a thick layer of gooey cheese on top of a very flavorful onion broth. I found my salad of warm octopus and new potatoes a little disappointing. The service was good. The restaurant is large and the staff is friendly.

I went to Holder for brunch in February 2013. The menu wasn't extensive, but had several delicious choices. I settled on the apple pain dore (french toast).

The food was fantastic, but the service wasn't that great. The server never came back to check on the food, and we had to flag him down for more coffee and/or water. The restaurant wasn't busy, so it seemed odd.

I would go back for the great food, but hope that we receive better service.
