The $17.99 smoked meat sandwich is definitely not worth it. Meat was flavourless, fries were cold and coleslaw was boring. This is by far the worst meal I’ve had in a long time. Seriously go somewhere else it’s just not worth it. Complained to the...More

Excellent service and the food was really good. I ordered the builder plate and the meat was tender and flavorful. Come with an appetite as the portions are very large and the desserts looked great, but I was far too full to eat any more!

Had the pulled pork and Reuben poutine, the two options offered and they were delish! Would’ve given a 5 but was initially given dirty dishes. I would recommend!!

We went to Reuben’s for dinner and I have to say the Reuben sandwich was excellent. My wife has the regular smoked meat sandwich which was also very good. They could have cut down on the amount of fries to avoid waste. Service was ok...More

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

In Montreal, we used public transportation and walking exclusively. However, there are a lot of public parking and street parking around.

They are owned by the same family. The steakhouse made a change and added the supper menu, where the deli did not. If i were to chose I would take the steakhouse, great food and great staff
