While the Dominion Square Tavern is open until midnight, all of my visits have been for lunch and it's been a treat every time. Place has been around since the 1920's and has maintained the same glorious décor. It's undergone major transformations over the years...More

The Dominion Square Tavern is the type of place where you feel comfortable as soon as you step in the door. The decor is Tavern nostalgic in a very Wes Anderson way... authentic, kitschy and cool... it all feels somehow strangely familiar. Old school cocktails...More

Love this place! Fill your tum in a classic revamped 1909 tavern. Braised beef with cheddar mashed potatoes was tender, rich and perfect followed by a really interesting and light orange steamed pudding for dessert. Yum! Service is a bit rushed, (they are a bit...More

Delicious food and superb drinks. Try the scotch egg, not a huge fan of eggs but this was unbelievable still trying to figure out how the egg was not completely hard-boiled. Great service! Be sure to make a reservation!

Went by myself and ate at the bar. Great atmosphere with no TVs, very lively on a Wednesday night. The meat ploughman was huge and delicious. The man sitting next to me was eyeing it jealously.

No silly tv's hanging on the walls, or crap processed food. This is a great tavern, fantastic food and ambiance, good service, and a location rich in history. This is Montreal.

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

i would probably say "No". Obviously entirely up to you but the 2 times we visited it seemed full of business people at lunchtime and an adult crowd in the evening. (Plus there isn't a lot of space). Regards. Kev

Featuring a plethora of interesting 1920s-inspired design details, the Dominion Square Tavern is a cut above your average downtown eatery. Enjoy simple classic fare such as mussels and fries or a pulled pork sandwich in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Top it off with a sinful serving of sticky toffee pudding. Newly reopened, the tavern is already a huge hit with the downtown professional crowd. A full bar, cocktails, wine and beers awaits.
