“Wonderful Food!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening! The waiter was very attentive and the food was wonderful. The reataurant is upstairs not to be confused with the patio on the street.

“Somewhat disappointing experience”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We visited this restaurant while in Montreal. We sat outside - very nice table and it was fun to watch the world go by in scenic Old Montreal. Service was good and friendly although we did have to wait quite a while for our bill at the end. ( Why don't restaurant managers train their staff on this simple issue - most people hate feeling ignored at the end of a meal! ).

Food however was somewhat disappointing. Escargots were tasty but cool. My wife had a steak which was tough. I had shrimps and scallops which again were tasty but not hot. We have eaten here before on a previous visit and had a better experience. Maybe an off night?

“Great Ambience”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Outside seating in the middle of Old Montreal, so great for soaking up the atmosphere & people watching. Varied menu, with reasonable prices.

“Portuguese in Old Montreal”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Food was excellent. I had the lamb rack whilst Mrs Pipes had the lobster. They also had Portuguese beers available which we greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Decor seemed very busy and dated. Service was good and attentive. We did have an issue with the waiter at the end of the night who failed to bring us our change. I can only guess that he assumed the bill was final which was a poor assumption to make. Aside from this, I'd be happy to recommend Solmar to others.
