Went to Gibby's on US Thanksgiving. Valet parking! Most places in Montreal in the Old Port in particular are iffy to find parking. Greeted and sat immediately. Our waitress was Caroline, outgoing, friendly and so helpful. Gibby's is a top of the line steakhouse. What...makes it so much more is value added. Most high end chop houses are all A la carte. At Gibby's you get a starter a potato as well as a vegetable!! Is the price high? Not really for all you get it is trully a bargain.
The first thing you get is a loaf of hot bread and a dish of their homemade pickles. My wife started with a wedge salad, I had a bowl of Gazpacho. Both were cold and so good. Next Marion got the boneless Rib steak, I had the Beef Wellington. Each came with a baked potato as well as asparagus. Marion's steak was perfectly cooked and came with the restaurants version of Montreal Steak spice. My wellington was an 8 oz filet wrapped in duxellles and a delicious crust. The Wellington came with a perfect Bordelaise sauce. Both meals were delicious, tender, and an excellent portion size. For dessert we split an amazing dark chocolate mousse. Marion had a latte, but I opted for the Cafe Bresilian. This is Brandy, Tia Maria, Flambeed into a wine glass with a sugar rim, add coffee, fresh whipped cream, then ladled on flaming Gran Marnier. Caroline put on an amazing show and gave me a delicious end to a great meal. Do not look at the price and say too much. The food is great, the service amazing, and the value is excellent.More
