Mr Grumman greeted us, and knew straight away that we weren’t curlers. Well worth the trip to the curling club for this amazing Montreal deli. Cheers!

Very welcoming atmosphere coupled with great Jewish comfort food that reminded me of home cooking that my grandmother used to make. Food was very simple but used high quality ingredients which is exactly what made it fantastic. The Pickles and latkes were amazing. Friendly and...competent service with reasonable prices!More

So we're able to eat in now. I brought my wife for the first time. She gave it a solid thumbs up. We split a rueben and a turkey club with pickles, latkes, and slaw. Everything was great, good service, reasonable prices. We'll be back.

Thank you for letting us know of your concern. Establishments have been given the choice of wearing masks or social distancing. I trust you noticed when you were in that we have spread out our tables and have put up plexiglass dividers between our booths....More

Ordered a large rueben sandwich with coleslaw, pickle, & a soup. The rueben was over the top delicious. Everything you'd expect in a good deli. I'll be back.

I'm from Montreal and miss the feel of a traditional Montreal Delicatessen/Restaurant. Grumans brings this to Calgary with all the traditional deli favorites. Don't miss it!

My husband and I decided to try Gruman's for an early dinner. We had been talking about thiset packages of corned wet used to have as kids. You booked the pack in water and then had it with mustard on the bread. We went here...looking for someone similar. Old fashioned Montreal Smoked meat on carraway bread was great!More

We were excited to try a Jew”ish” deli in Canada. Coming from NY, where deli is king, I was hoping to find a hidden gem up North. Well, we did. It was fabulous. The Matzoh Ball soup is amazing. Very good broth with a lot...of flavor and a soft delicious matzoh ball with a ton of flavor. The owner was so kind to help us plan our day and packed us a lovely delectable lunch for a picnic along the way to Jasper. I would go back every visit.More

I had tried Grumans a couple of years ago but my friend never had so we went for lunch on a Saturday. The Montreal Smoked Meat was still the best. The Potato Knishes were to die for as they had left over brisket from Friday...and stuffed the Knishes with brisket as well and served with gravy. Absolutely delicious! The Latkes were just ordinary but the Beef and Knishes made up for it. Would definitely go back again and would definitely would like to try the Brisket on Fridays. Service was friendly and efficient.More

Between the 4 of us, we had the Reuben, smoked meat sandwich, and hotdogs. They were all delicious, and the sandwiches were piled high with meat. The sandwiches came with fries, but I would have loved a pickle too. They were not included but you...could order separately, which I found a bit odd. The drinks were all canned, yet for the kids, they only charged $1.75 instead of $3.50. Nice, since the drinks weren’t included with the kids meal ($10), but weird b/c the adult and children’s cans were all the same size. Service was good, and I would definitely go back.More

I have eaten here several times. I tend to have the more typical jewish diner dishes like the Reuben sandwich made with Montreal style smoked meat or the bagel and lox. For those who like such dishes Grumans food is pretty good. I have eaten...at Grumans when it is very busy, so I have been forgiving of the slow if not bad service, but in this last visit the service was terrible and it was not busy at all. We ordered coffee and water and were unable to get the attention of the waitress to ask for refills. After our meals were served we were ignored completely. I don't like the food enough to tolerate the bad service so I won't be returning.More

We came for lunch the other day and had potato latkes along with smoked meat sandwiches - absolutely the best. Their coleslaw is probably the best I have ever had and luckily one can buy it to take out which we did. They also bring...in original Montreal bagels from Côte du Luc -- wonderful. Very personal and friendly service. This is the place to go to satisfy your craving for Montreal smoked meat...I hear their Reuben is one of their best sellers so will order that next time!More
