This is my third Joe Beef visit and you can expect an experience for sure. They expanded and winterized the terrace and that is great news! The room was warm, quiet and we had a lot of room and we had hooks for our coats...More

Average hugely overpriced food, crowded and fairly uncomfortable environment and absolutely disgusting arrogant service. A ruined evening. I was mad at myself opting for this "prestigious" place while just in front there is a beautiful pub and a nice bistro. By the way, the local...More

I'll start off by specifying that I am not an adventurous eater nor a meat lover. However, that in no way deprived me from having an amazing time at Joe Beef. Reservations are a little bit harder to obtain than other restaurants, but, worth the...More

The menu is written in chalk on the wall, and at night, the restaurant is lit only by candlelight, so you have to rely on the staff to explain the menu to you. When your meal arrives, you can’t see what your eating! The wine...More

This place is memorable. I loved the intentionality of the experience which is made to feel rather nonchalant. The idea of a kitchen setting out to select herbs from their own garden or setting up a real outdoor grill for whatever it is that may...More

This place has long been on my list of places to try, but somehow never reached the top, until we had some visitors and by chance there was a table for 6 available. Definitely interesting on entry, the menu is on a blackboard covering the...More

Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the
factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have
been renovated into homes, museums, and small
businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its
Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge
galleries and an ever-expanding network of
restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the
mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the

I'm sorry -- hadn't seen your question earlier. If there is walk-in service available it might take forever -- we booked the dinner over two months in advance and had to get really early seating.
