I made the reservation two weeks in advance. Told them it was my wife's birthday. I was a bit disappointed that they chose a table next to the bathroom way in the back.
So even though food and service was good my expectations with the experience were a little disappointing.

Tout allait super jusqu'au moment ou le feu a commencé dans la ventillation, ce qui nous a fait paniquer moi et mon conjoint. Mais le personnel l'a maîtrisé assez vite.

En général ce fut une belle expérience. Par contre grosse déception concernant les verres d’eau, servis a partir de bouteilles d’eau à usage unique. Aussi, notre serveur et les autres autour n’avaient pas de monnaie pour une facture en argent contant, ce qui ne devrait pas arriver dans un restaurant, encore moins dans un endroit de cette envergure.

The food was superb! The service was good and the ambiance however was loud and tables are too close together. But the food was worth everything.

Our meal was good but our waiter was terrible, if it wasn’t for his assistant we probably would have no service, for the price you pay this was not acceptable and would never go again.

Food was not that great. We ordered several dishes and they were just bland. Waiter felt like a used cars sales man. He kept trying to oversell everything and we bought into it but then nothing lived up to the hype.

It was a very attractive restaurant, inside & out. The paintings and setup were absolutely spectacular. The hood design in the open kitchen was gorgeous and the paintings were the same.... Our service was great. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was good, but I've been more impressed with the prices charged. We would definitely recommend it though as it was trendy and a hot spot.

Wow! Truly amazing dining experience. I can’t decide which was better: the food or the atmosphere. You will not be disappointed. The staff were so much fun and you could tell that they all love working there by the way that they smile and high-five each other. We are going back again soon.

Worst dining experience I have ever had. The restaurant was dilapidated. The food was subpar and the service was non-existent. The waiter did not seem to care to pay any attention to our table and repeatedly made a point of telling us the price of every menu item, assuming that we could not afford it. Our table was in the middle of the bottom floor, it was crowded. Waiters kept knocking into our chairs which made even attempting to eat or drink impossible without spilling everything all over yourself. Management was worse. I expressed our frustrations and was quickly dismissed.

Over priced and waiter was brusque. Seems upset when we ordered the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu. It was $77 and we had two bottles. Total bill for 4 adults with one starter, 4 mains, 2 bottles of wine & 3 cocktails came up to $680 including tips. The food is decent but it wasn’t fantastic plus the service was disappointing.

The service wasn’t great, the waiters seemed too busy talking between themselves. The restaurant was quite empty but service was still slow. The food was very good and all the sides were delicious. Hostesses wore short skirts about too short if you ask me, not very classy for a restaurant like La queue de cheval.

Beautiful restaurant, proper service and excellent food. You cannot go wrong here! Save room for dessert! Try the ground to order burger. Oysters were stellar and the staff were fun and engaging.
A must try! We will return !

Cost $500 for two people, with 1 bottle of wine, including taxes and tip.
The steak was very good, but I had about the same for less at other top restaurants.

Positive: great service, ambiance is really nice, good choice of wine, and quality of food is there. Also, great cheese cake.

Negative: they might have the quality, but the entire food was NOT hot enough, both steaks were not hot, the mash potatoes were almost cold and the vegetables were just warm. That was very disappointing, specially at that price. Also, the “guy in a suit” that tells the kitchen staff what to do is “too much”, yells a lot and throws things around, for not much reasons, and should pay more attention to get the food in time to the customers, before it gets cold!

Overall, we had a nice evening because of the staff that served us, but had to rate a 3 because of the food being cold and that “guy” yelling, at that price it is unacceptable.

This place was a real disappointment. I wanted a real Montreal steak experience and this place fell flat. The service was ok, not top notch. Could have gotten the same in less high end restaurant. I ordered a martini to start, which came out kind of skimpy. The tuna tataki I got as an app was good but no chop sticks! I order a filet medium rare with cognac peppercorn sauce a bone marrow and side of Brussel sprouts in maple dressing and pork belly. Honestly the best thing was the Brussel sprouts. My first stake came out medium almost well. They took the meal away and brought me a whole new one. Then everything came out and the bone marrow was underdone. So they took that back. The steak was cooked fine and tasted ok. The bone marrow when it came back was good. Together they were underwhelming. I really enjoyed the Brussel sprouts. For dessert I got the white chocolate cheesecake which was amazing. Overall it was underwhelming and a disappointment. If I come back to Montreal I’ll take my money and appetite elsewhere. I have been to some great steakhouses and this was not one unfortunately.

Visited La Queue de Cheval for the first time at the new location. Was very disappointed in the overall dinner. On a Friday night, several of the menu items were not available. The steaks that we did get were cooked properly but lacked the expected flavor. The service was average. Will not return.

I went here because I wanted a lobster on my last night in Montreal. Their raw bar is called the "Angry Lobster". When I tried to order one I was told there was no lobster and that they were not serving any of the dishes that contained lobster that night (my first 3 choices). So I ordered the lamb- was told they were out of lamb. I tried to order a Delmonico steak- They didn't have that. I tried to order a different steak. They were out of that. So I settled on my 7th ( yes 7th) choice on the menu- A dry-aged American steak which I could have gotten at home. Why didn't they just start by telling me what they were out of in the first place?

The steak was burnt, and undersalted but still pretty good. The pommes neuf were undercooked. The service was snooty. The maitre 'd called me by my first name, which I thought was creepy as I hadn't introduced myself. The poor hostess was wearing a skirt so short she could barely walk up the stairs. No hard liquor and no beer or at least they don't have it on the menu. The dining room was so dark the waiter had to use the light on his cell phone to point out something on the menu.

When I left after, spending way too much on a pretty mediocre meal, I noticed there were a few lobsters in the tank as well as literally dozens of boiled lobsters on display in the raw oyster bar downstairs. They said they only serve those on the seafood platter, which I couldn't have because they only make it for groups of 2 or more, and I was alone. As I was leaving they told me to come back tomorrow if I wanted lobster. Who drops $200 on a meal 2 nights in a row? Everything about this meal was disappointing. Don't bother there are way better restaurants with better service in Montreal.

Me and my friend got a food intoxication eating the 275$ steak. Food was good. Music to loud, does not match the high end menu. For tourists.
