I found Universal to be a really pleasant all around experience. The food was delicious and fairly priced, the service was pleasant, and their specialty juices were to die for. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

That would probably be my biggest problem, is that there are so many choices I never know what to go for. Everything I had was extremely good and the portions are more than decent (I have had to share my meal because I couldn't eat any more).

I recently went today with my good friend, to this location for our dinner. While eating I saw a bug quickly running on top of our table walls. We thought it was a fly so we swatted at it but it didn't bugged and continued onto the other sides walls of the table close next to us. Two minutes after... More

I went to Universal for breakfast as part of a large group. Despite being a large group, the service was quite fast. My breakfast consisted of 2 eggs, sausage, home potatoes, a crepe, baked beans, cretons, toast and coffee. In place of crepes, you can also choose french toast or waffles. This large breakfast was a good deal at $15.... More

I enjoyed the food and service here. Both my boyfriend and I had the pasta. They were delicious and the portions were big enough that we took some back to the hotel to eat later. We also had the fried zucchini and cheese for an appetizer which was good.

Great location and nice atmosphere, and many menu selections, with "average at the best food". Presentation greatly outweighed quality. Food arrived quicker than expected, but that was the end of the service. Service was slow and non existent after food delivery. Too many choices in Montreal to return.

We try to visit this restaurant for breakfast every time we are in Montreal. The food is great, the service is great, and the price is just right. Have never been dissapointed here.

Customer service was better than most places I've been in Montreal but still just satisfactory. Ordered a breakfast poutine and coffee, only took about 10 min. $16 tax included. The breakfast poutine was delicious but I think was too heavy and too much for 1 person to finish.

A nice easygoing pub, where you can enjoy a light meal at a reasonable price. I definitely liked the healthy omelette menu: the omelette was pretty tasty and the bread ok. You also have a small basket of fresh fruit, so it is a complete meal for something like less than 15 dollars. Staff is generally nice and not invasive.

Thank 248Salvatore

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.
