We found Brasserie 701 on Trip Advisor and walked there from Old Town. From our first steps inside, we were treated like royalty by the restaurant manager. This continued through out our meal, even extending help with getting a cab back to our hotel. We both had duck for our meal and once again, we had personal attention regarding my husband's garlic intolerance. Our meal was delicious. My husband had wine and coffee, both were well paired. This restaurant is a great choice when in Montreal.

We really wanted to like this place and were excited to try it on our first night in town. The restaurant is beautiful and we really enjoyed our appetizers. My wife had one of the salads and I had the mushrooms on toast and both were delicious. The disaster happened with dinner. The couple seated next to us didn't order an appetizer but was done and paid for before our dinner even came and our waitress was nowhere to be found. An hour and a half after being seated, we finally saw our waitress and asked if our dinner was close to being ready because we really just wanted to go home. Both a waitress and a manager came over to tell us it was being plated which was a flat out lie. We received our meals cold, my wife's mashed potatoes were rubbery and glue like from sitting around while my duck was tough and barely edible. I should have complained at the time but we were very hungry after traveling most of the day and just wanted to eat something. Another waiter saw us once again looking around trying to find our waitress and brought us dessert menus but we just wanted to get out. There were no apologies and nothing taken off our bill (although I didn't ask). What upsets me the most about this place is that they flat out lied that our meal was being plated when it clearly had been sitting in the kitchen for at least half an hour. If they had been up front with us, we could have left or gotten something else. Instead, we feel screwed over by a restaurant that was fairly highly rated and charged quite a bit for food they knew had been sitting out.

The filet mignon was the best I haven’t had and the sauce was unbelievable. . The creme brûlée was excellent. Highly recommend as the entire evening was a great experience.

Based on Tripadvisor.com reviews, we had planned on dining in this restaurant, and then discovered that it was actually in our hotel. We had a pleasant meal indoors and received excellent service from Sara. We chose Le Pive rose since the weather was quite warm, and it was quite good. Having seen photos of the hamburger on this site, we chose that for dinner and were not disappointed.

The only negative is that the restaurant is quite noisy, especially if you are not seated near the side.

Jessica was our bartender ... makes a great high end drink! It's not cheap, but definitely a nice place for a good mixology experience!
