A colleague recommended this place...so glad I listened. The food was yummy! I loved the beet salad with goat cheese. The French fries and mayonnaise were a hit as well. The server was very attentive. This place has a great vibe. I would have loved to sit on the patio but it was a warm evening last week and it... More

After a less than memorable experience at another restaurant last night I came here for dinner with work compatriots this evening on a whim. I'm so glad I did. What a great meal. Excellent service as well. The menu is old fashioned but in a good way. Awesome atmosphere.

Went there with a work colleague. The food was lovely - great blade of beef and lovely tart with pecans and maple syrup. The wine was also really good (St Emilion). Lovely environment and old style restaurant with a nice area st the bar for eating. Really good service too.

Two couples arriving at Taverne a Square Dominion with a reservation at 9:30 pm, found a nice and original restaurant with a great ambiance. The food and the service was excellent. With an open...

This restaurant came highly recommended and the menu was different and we had a group of 6 people and we all just looked at each other wondering what the big deal was. The place was packed for a Monday night. The service was slow and the food was average at best. Do not ask for any alteration to your order... More

Great afternoon hanging out and trying different drinks and menu items. The mussels were some of the best ever, served along with french fries and mayo. If french fries can be fantastic, these were it. We had a number of drinks as well as everything on the left side of the menu. The bartender was great explaining all our choices... More

Our family feast at this lively pub was a total success. It was easy to get to via the Metro ( Peel street station). We had made reservations on line, giving information about food allergies. The staff were aware of the allergy information and were able to reassure us in a professional and conscientious manor. The cocktails were great and... More

First time here. The food and ambiance are great. We started with a series of shareable appetizers (there were six of us), including the charcuterie, cheese plate, corn fritters (soooo good!). The braised beef (main course) was exceptional. Tender, flavourful, cooked perfectly. Others at the table had the beet salad, daily special, cod. All declared it great food. Too bad... More

Great drink selection. Was not a big fan of the food menu. We had the corn fritters which were bland. And I had the fish platter. Was ok. Great service but not my type of menu.

Thank lbshadow

Featuring a plethora of interesting 1920s-inspired design details, the Dominion Square Tavern is a cut above your average downtown eatery. Enjoy simple classic fare such as mussels and fries or a pulled pork sandwich in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Top it off with a sinful serving of sticky toffee pudding. Newly reopened, the tavern is already a huge hit with the downtown professional crowd. A full bar, cocktails, wine and beers awaits.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
