Description: AAA dry aged Angus Beef, a delicious raw bar, colorful cocktails, live music and the best burger in town-Méchant Boeuf delivers on all fronts. A happy hour fixture, this Old Montreal hub adds a pinch of outlandishness to modern pub sensibilities. It's a fresh spin on post-work unwinding and late-night bites. Montreal's mischievous side never tasted so good!

We enjoyed our meal here a lot. We were very nervous when we walked in and rap music was blaring so loud we could not hear ourselves speak, but as soon as we sat down, the music changed to something more tranquil and we were able to enjoy the quality food served here.

The wedge salad was particularly delicious and I loved my burger. The fries were excellent as well. Our service was warm and very attentive and I loved that we had a table along the booth wall because the columns made it very private.

There wasn't a free table and it was packed all night but our little corner was lovely. Good beer selection as well.

A group of us went here for dinner recently and upon entering I really liked the ambiance and decor. We were seated promptly and the menu was explained to us. The service was pleasant but EXTREMELY slow. It took over an hour for some of us to get our drinks. Some of us ordered from the menu and others ordered the five course meal. Overall people thought their food was OK but nobody was "wowed" by anything they ordered. Again, they need to have more servers help out since it was the same guy serving us while the others were chatting at the bar. I'm not sure why since the restaurant was pretty much empty during our visit which was early evening.

We had an engaging and tasteful time at the bar with Nikki the head bartender - wonderful drinks, hand-touched and personally prepared from her extensive knowledge and discerning palate. What a great time and happy memory from our visit to Vieux Montreal

Just a great place - the food here is always terrific. I've been here many times and I've always enjoyed dining and hosting guests at this place when in Montreal. Located in the heart of old town, the location is convenient and the decor is modern and contemporary. The food here is always pleasantly good... I've had everything from chicken, steak, oysters, etc. Live music is frequently played in the evening and adds to the atmosphere. Really, this is just one of my favorite restaurants, not just in Montreal, but anywhere.

We could not believe the quality of the buck-a-shuck oysters at Merchant Boeuf. Happy hour drinks were also fantastic. We went back as many days as we could for oysters and drinks while on our vacation to Montreal. Service was also excellent. We can't wait to go back again.
