Went for a nice meal with my wife and was looking for a new restaurant to try. Read good reviews and found the menu had a nice set of fish and meat dishes. We like charcoal BBQ flavor too so this seemed like a nice place to try. We were greeted by a friendly server who explained the whole menu. Too much to pick from so we asked for recommendations. She suggested the avocado carpaccio which were slices of avocado with a delicious garlic mayo. Very tasty. We also had the salmon tartare which was surrounded by a delicious band of charred eggplant. Our mains were the cod and the chicken both highly recommended. I was looking to order the hanger steak but the waitress sold me on the chicken. I don’t normally order chicken in a restaurant but was very happy with this dish. A nice half chicken in a mist toothsome gravy. I couldn’t wait to dip each new bite of chicken in this buttery slightly sweet slightly salty flavoursome gravy. My wife enjoyed her vid and we finished with a s’mores like dessert. Very much enjoyed our first experience. As for prices appetizers were reasonable around 15$ each while mains ran from about $30-40. I think quite reasonable for the area and for the nice atmosphere of the restaurant. On an additional note we found the service very attentive too,

I've been here several times and it never disappoints. I'm always overcome by the gorgeous décor. Very cool ambiance especially for nice romantic dinner. The lighting, high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows / glass doors really make it cozy yet classy. The comes the drinks and the food. Both on point, every time! We had the opportunity to meet Chef Mathieu. Very enthusiastic, energetic and passionate young chef. Culinary experience was to die for regardless of what you order. The service was quick and efficient too - the waiters really know the menu in detail. The restaurant is located in a very cute area of Montreal just minutes from the Old Port. Highly recommend this place to anyone who loves food, drinks or someone looking to impress on that first date!

Warm welcome, great decor, friendly staff. My husband felt that the waitress might have been a bit robotic in her presentation, however i think that she might have been new and was trying her best to present the menus properly. We started with Scallop carpaccio, Beef sashimi and octopus tempura. All three entrees were tasty and beautifully presented. As a main, by husband chose the Iceland cod and I the pork belly. Once again, no denying how artistically the food was presented. How much more appetizing is it to eat something so wonderfully presented. The pork belly, although very good is extremely rich, therefore I would chose another dish the next time. Another great restaurant in Montreal to chose from.

Started off excellent and then trailed off. Agree w prior reviews the avocado carpaccio and tuna appetizers were flavorful and excellent. The oyster is would skip as the cheese overpowered all other flavors. The cod was very good but not as flavor forward as the Appetizers. Service and ambience very good.

Ordered four of their "fusion" plates which came with minuscule food and large plates plus 15 sauces smeared on the plates in "avant garde style. Expect no particular taste or anything cooked just half crude veggies including the waitress, a vapid disinterested self absorbed person. I wanted to understand what the specific of this flamboyant restaurant was. They borrow stuff from everyone else and call it their own. Pathetic. The only serious item was the bill. Good lesson however, the "i'll never come back ever" to this place. I was sick for two days due to the raw food served. Avoid at all cost

Although this restaurant was highly recommended by coworkers it was disappointing. The food was good but certainly OVER priced. Although we knew the table would be ours from 19:00 to 21:00 our waiter started pacing at our table 10 mins before 21:00. We had already paid our bills. We were just finishing up our last sips of wine. He asked us TWICE if we could hurry up and free the table. After spending $300 for a meal, we found it to be disrespected and rude. Will not be returning!

The venue for the latest Cena con Bellissima was the much talked about Jellyfish near the Old Port. It is a lovely space with high ceilings and lavish chandeliers. However we chose a cute little table on the terrace because the evening was fresh. The event actually coincided with a major work achievement for me so what does the best BFF in the world do? She surprises me with celebratory champagne and oysters and it was such a perfect treat to mark the occasion! The menu is quite unique as it is a reflection of the talented chef’s world travels. I was impressed by a particular menu item that was his twist to Indian street food. Everything we ordered was just delicious so it was good we decided to share so we could try a little of everything. The portions are not large but they are filling. They also have an extensive wine list with local offerings. Our waitress was pleasant and charming. Jellyfish is pricey but it definitely lives up to the hype!

Our first dinner out since the re-opening! When I called to make reservations, Gabriel was friendly and reassuring about the guidelines. Large and spacious terrace is beautiful, if you’d like to share the experience under the stars. The restaurant is magnificent, the lighting, massive windows, art, bar, table settings and comfortable seating. Tables are spread out and there are partitions where necessary. Tables are carefully cleaned and disinfected between seatings. Waiters and waitresses all wore masks. Service is exceptional (as always). They work as an amazing team, offering wonderful pairings and recommendations. Always seem to be there exactly when you need something, never intrusive. The menu (as always) outstanding. We enjoyed the Oysters, Tuna Crudo, Torched Salmon Sashimi, broccoli, Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Octopus tempura, Veal Fillet and New York Cut. All prepared in the most wonderful and delicate sauces, perfectly balanced, never overpowering, always letting the star on the plate shine through, all platted like works of art!! The incredible name Jellyfish, Crudo & Charbon should be an indication, that the experience will be fabulous and one that you will always remember! We enjoyed a lovely walk around Old Montreal when dinner was over. So glad to be back!! Can’t wait to return!!! Don’t forget to ask about the name “Jellyfish”!! L’Chaim 🥂

We visited this restaurant for the first time in March and had a very good meal, although we felt the service was rushed and slighty disorganized. We ordered the rotelle pasta, the cod and the NY steak and all were very good, as was the bread served with the meal and the wine we chose was excellent. However, the 'puri puri' was average and the desert, a type of coconut cake, was not good very good at all. We were surprised that the menu did not include any soups or salads, but the meal was good enough that we made another reservation for four people a few weeks later. This time, we had a table by the window and our waiter was energetic and seemed knowledgeable. We ordered a bottle of wine right away, although the 'sommelier' did not seem pleased that we knew which bottle we wanted before he could make a suggestion and he did not even open the bottle of wine in front of us, which was very strange. As well, the bread they served were these small rolls which were not that fresh, and when we inquired about the bread from our previous visit, we were told that they had run out of that bread, which shows that the restaurant is not being well managed. What was truly amazing, however, is that we ordered two dirty martinis, and the first time they brought them to us, they were awful, almost as if they were made with straight vodka. The replacements they brought were no better, so we stuck with the wine we had ordered. How can a restaurant of any decent calibre have bartenders who do not know how to make a dirty martini, especially when the bar area is a focal point of the restaurant. Pretty shocking, actually. The meals we ordered were good, including the rotelle, the cod and the crudo tuna, but the chicken, which was highly recommended, was bland, pale and doused and sitting in a pool of butter. Gordon Ramsay would have a field day with this dish. As well, one of the two deserts we ordered was a half baked chocolate cake with sauce and it was underwhelming and not enjoyable at all. We will not be going back to this resturant anytime soon. With so many great resturant choices in Montreal, there is no reason at all to go back to this one.

Jellyfish offers great fare, that will please discerning palates looking for original dishes. Lots for lovers of raw fish (crudo), expertly prepared, and beautifully presented. The appetizers are really tasty! Appealing choices for veggie lovers, too. Among friends, a great option is just ordering lots of appetizers and sharing. The wine list is limited, but it is possible to find decent selections, even by the glass. This is not the place for an intimate romantic dinner - the place is lively, and the noise level is fairly high.

One of the best dinners we have ever enjoyed anywhere! We have always had extremely wonderful dinners @ Jellyfish, this time was no exception. Having said that, we found it particularly outstanding!!! We started with Oysters, Scallop Crudo, Beef Tartare, Pani puri, Tuna Crudo, Lobster ceviche and Tuna tartare. Prepared magnificently, fabulous variety, each dish superb!!! Creative masterpieces, unlike dishes you will find elsewhere. We were six people in our party and everyone got to enjoy each Crudo selection. Crispy Brussel sprouts and broccoli as sides, Veal short ribs, New York Cut and Filet Mignon were the Mains. Each delectable dish prepared impeccably. As always, the service was excellent. Camille and Jonathan offered fabulous recommendations, on point with timing, always available without being intrusive. Ambiance is unconventional, lively, very comfortable seating. A beautiful outdoor terrace is available. Extraordinary evening!! Enjoy a walk around the Old Port after dinner. Couples, friends family, superb choice for any occasion. Thank you for another extremely memorable evening!!! 🥂 cheers!

Everything was spectacular! Let's begin with the staff. The host greeted the entire family making the initial experience very welcoming. After being seated by the host, the waitress brought the menu and wine list. The head waitress/administrator was very professional and knew a heck of a lot about wine, their taste, and region. Throughout the service, our waitress was very helpful in answering our questions, discussing specials, and being very friendly. Overall, the service was perfect. Now let's talk about the interior. There is a very modern take on the restaurant's interior with modern chandeliers, wine wall, and bar. However, there are some small classic touches, such as a brick wall and wooden floors. I believe the interior fits the atmosphere of the restaurant and compliments it very well. Lastly the food. For the appetizers we ordered: beef tataki, pani puri, tuna crudo, and crispy brussel sprouts. The beef tataki was beautifully presented with a very nice and soothing wasabi sauce. Pani puri ( duck tartare in a deep-fried shell) was very innovative and delicious. Pani puri ( almost like tuna carpaccio ) was well prepared with hints of spice making the dish balanced with the touches of coconut milk on the plate. Lastly, for the appetizers was crispy brussel sprouts in a very nice kimchi sauce and bonito flakes adding nice flavour. For the main course, we ordered: Rotelle, braised crispy pork belly, hanger steak, and veal short ribs. Rotelle ( pasta with mushroom and served with bone marrow) was very creative and sublime, especially with the bone marrow adding richness to the pasta. Braised crispy pork belly was in fact crisy but also very tender and was accompanied by two scallops. The hanger steak was tender and well-cooked. The veal short rib were succulent in a very pleasant soy ginger sauce elevating the ribs. Lastly for dessert, we got their specialty, smores and a pistachio layered pastry. The smores were to die for, very unexpectedly good. Overall, everything was amazing and I would highly recommend this place!

Another exceptional dinner @ Jellyfish Crudo & Charbon! Stunning establishment, radiant lighting, comfortable seating, lovely ambient music, excellent location in Old Montreal. Outstanding menu, something for everyone. We enjoyed the oysters, beef tartare, Quebec lobster ceviche, tuna crudo, filet mignon, New York Cut, with sides of French fries and crispy brussel sprouts. Everything was exceptional, prepared in beautiful unique and creative ways. Team led by Gabrielle was magnificent, energetic, informative and made sure it was a special evening. As always, never intrusive, always available, perfectly timed courses. Channel the Mixologist, prepared made to order, special beverages, which were amazing!!! Thank you Jellyfish, for a wonderful evening! Street parking available or several parking lots close by. Enjoy a lovely walk around Old MONTREAL after dinner! A very special dinner! Cheers!

I had dinner @jellyfishmontreal tonight which is run by @chefmathieumd. We ordered broccoli which had such great kaffir lime leaf flavours but was a bit salty (but that’s the Asian way), rotelle which was a rich pasta with bone marrow and tender beef which was really good. My friend had tuna crudo which was good and he loved the pieces of tempura. He also had the bass fish which had great korean flavours of gochujang, which I love. We also had Brussel sprouts with a kimchi sauce, and a bottle of wine. All in all, it was fantastic. I love Korean food, so the Asian fusion was very interesting to see food that you would never see in Korea being served with those flavours, like Brussel sprouts. I enjoyed the reality of an entire fish on a plate, like they serve in Asia, and the bone marrow reminded me that this is an animal to be respected. I lived in Asia for 2 years and this dinner reminded me of those times, the simplicity of food, and the flavours unique to only places like Korea, China, and Thailand, I even liked the final touch of the Korean postcard with the bill. Definitely worth a visit if your in Montreal.
