Had our drinks but couldn't hear anything but the loud music. Asked if the dining area was quieter but it was open to the bar, too. so we left. The servers there, though were friendly and understanding.

Nice location, decent bar. The restaurant offers typical bar food from steaks to fish. The food is average, nothing that makes me want to come back. The restaurant offers a great location beside the W Hotel. On a positive note, the female servers are very easy on the eyes...

We came into the Houston because it was close to our hotel. First impression was a waitress picking up a napkin that had fallen on the floor and putting it back on the table . Second impression was a waitress drinking with patrons at the table beside us . Never in all my years have I seen a wait staff... More

We stopped for an early dinner. Place was recommended by our nearby hotel. Mostly 30-40 y/o work crowd but didn't feel out of place. Cesear salad and clam chowder were great. Salmon fantastic. Music was a little loud but it was happy hour. Need more beer selections. Would go back.

For Starters we had the tacos and they were the best I've had. Ordered the small size and it was very reasonable portion. For main course had the steak and ribs. Steak was cooked to perfection for my taste. The ribs had a nice sweet taste. The finale was the brownie sundae with great espresso. Pretty loud on a Friday... More

Simply fantastic! When super tasty food is combined with top notch service, dining outdoor feels right. We loved the food here! Steaks were delicious. Hostess recommended an excellent wine. We sat at the outdoor patio and it was beautiful and comfortable for my children also. Bon appetite!

We had a farewell party at this establishment and boy do we regret it. The service was really bad. We were 37 people over several tables and had 1 waitress attending to us. She took drink orders from 2 out of the 5 tables and then took her another 45 minutes before she came back to us after a complaint... More

I'm sure this place has a draw for some people, but not me. Went there around 7pm for a couple of beers before dinner. The place was super loud; I could barely hear my friends across the table. Also, the beer selection was terrible. Canada has some great breweries -- highlight them on tap / bottle!

First time at this franchise ever and also visiting Montreal. Staff very nice, however of two steaks ordered, one perfectly cooked med-rare, one was well done. Sent back to kitchen, replacement again over cooked. Couldn't eat it...but appreciated that we were not charged for it. Left feeling sorry for husband for not getting his steak...disappointed.

Staying in Quartier International

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention centre and retail space with a multi-coloured glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterise the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
