I had high hopes for my experience the moment I walked into Reubens. The restaurant had a busy, downtown vibe which was encouraging. We were seated quickly and the food that went by looked great. I wanted to compare smoked meat sandwiches so eagerly ordered up a small which came with a poppyseed bun (nice touch) instead of the usual... More

Montreal smoked meat sandwich is a local deli classic that Reuben's serves up well. Great staff, friendly and relaxed yet efficient service.

I have very low standards. I just like a good meal at an appropriate price. I like most any food as long as it is as described and properly priced. The Reuben fell short. My food was mediocre at most and I was charged $1.50 for a side of bottled ranch dressing. I was in Montreal for 5 days and... More

Came here in September on mistake. Thought it was the other Rubens which is down the road. Was looking for a famous Ruben sandwich. This place was a great choice for late eats as many other places were closed when we came by. Food was great and service was quick and welcoming for so late at night!

Traveling recently while picking up a friend from a flight from Austria, a surprise. Stopping explicitly for a smoked meat sandwich at Dunn's on rue St. Catherine, only to discover it had changed location, we found Reuben's Steak House and Deli. Looking to devour smoked meat, what the hell "nothing ventured, nothing gained, we entered. I could wax rhapsodic about... More

Service was excellent. The ribeye was nothing except fat and the chimmichurri was cold as was the waxy potatoes. Very bad meal. Sandwiches may be good but stay away from the steaks.

Thank James H
DevilleDinerbar, Public Relations Manager at Reuben's Deli & Steaks, responded to this review

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal James! Chimichurri is served at room temperature and ribeye is traditionally a fattier cut. We think a striploin cut may be more to your liking: give our "Big Jim's Cut" a try on your next visit! More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
