Was looking forward to a smoked beef sandwich so ordered the Famous, which is supposed to be 10 oz. of meat. Now, a 10 oz. steak is about right for me, but for a sandwich, this proved to be too much. The thin slices of...More

This restaurant in the heart of Montreal is a fun and busy place. The food is fabulous. Ordered the steak which was one of the juiciest and tastiest steaks I’ve had in a long time. The Caesar salad was very flavourful as well.

Had a late lunch here a couple of weeks ago. It was a fun place and it was great to try a Montreal smoked meat sandwich while we were in town. The sandwich was perfectly sized for sharing. Would definitely recommend.

That could be funny to make your own comparison! However, they served dessert...not at Schwartz. Cheese cake is a good choice.

Don’t miss out on this Montreal landmark. The quality of the food and the attentive service have been consistently excellent for many years. I always go back and I’m never disappointed.

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

In Montreal, we used public transportation and walking exclusively. However, there are a lot of public parking and street parking around.

They are owned by the same family. The steakhouse made a change and added the supper menu, where the deli did not. If i were to chose I would take the steakhouse, great food and great staff
