This was a business lunch. Montreal does this very well, normally, and the service was slick and efficient as expected. The food however was mixed. My companion's meal was good, however my risotto was bland and tasteless. Probably best avoided. This is a popular restaurant and bar, particularly in the evenings (I have been here many times for happy hour... More

We celebrated my friend's birthday at Houston after work. We could not hear each other because of the loud music. The dj has to realize that this is not a night club and that people want to talk. Everybody had to scream to be heard and it made it even noisier. I will organize future 5a7s somewhere else.

I hear it's good but the kitchen was closed when we arrived early evening. Serve staff was great and still found options for us to eat. Surprised to find they don't carry "Stella".

We arrived around 9:30 in the evening only to be told that the grill was closed so no steaks were available. Seemed kind of early for a restaurant surrounded by hotels. We settled for a sandwhich which was OK. May come back to try the steaks next year when I go back to Montreal

I can't recommend this restaurant unless it is near to your work place and it's -20 Celcius outside. We went there for lunch with work colleagues and ordered the lunch special.The Canadian Houston is not the american version. It is downgraded version in terms of food quality.

Had our drinks but couldn't hear anything but the loud music. Asked if the dining area was quieter but it was open to the bar, too. so we left. The servers there, though were friendly and understanding.

Nice location, decent bar. The restaurant offers typical bar food from steaks to fish. The food is average, nothing that makes me want to come back. The restaurant offers a great location beside the W Hotel. On a positive note, the female servers are very easy on the eyes...

Staying in Quartier International

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention centre and retail space with a multi-coloured glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterise the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
