This is a restaurant that focuses on the food and the staff and less on decor. If you order steak for 2 you better be hungry. The mouth watering,tender and outstanding steak was large and topped off with any incredible sausage. The steak tartar was...More

Joe Beef is a very trendy restaurant with a nice atmosphere, and great staff. Everything we ordered was amazing, and the portions were not too big, but just right. Very unique restaurant.

I sat at the bar with a friend on a Saturday night. The bartender, David, knew the constantly changing menu inside and out and guided us through some fantastic dishes, great cocktails, and excellent wine. I cannot recommend this restaurant more enthusiastically!

Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the
factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have
been renovated into homes, museums, and small
businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its
Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge
galleries and an ever-expanding network of
restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the
mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the

I'm sorry -- hadn't seen your question earlier. If there is walk-in service available it might take forever -- we booked the dinner over two months in advance and had to get really early seating.
