Had a walk-in dinner recently during a business trip. Nice upscale interior and atmosphere. Excellent oysters and I really enjoyed the succulent prime-rib tacos as starter. For the surf & turf, we ordered our steaks medium and medium-rare and both arrived slightly overcooked to medium-well...More

Went to Vargas on my wife's birthday and our last day in Montreal. Arrived at 6PM on a Tuesday and it was not busy. Service was very good and the food delicious. Started with the beef satay and a sushi appetizer, both very tasty. I...More

Went for dinner and drinks. Nice surroundings and food but the young blokes stood at the end of the bar trying to look tough and stare at everybody, ruins it. They are obviously part of the owner team and are there to watch the place...More

Vargas has a nice décor and offers a good selection of fish and steaks. Service is friendly but without finesse. Steaks are good, but not outstanding. We also quite a few sides and they rank as average / good, but portions are quite smaller than...More

I had really good sushi at this place, and my friend was very happy with her sushi bowl. We had a very nice waiter, and the place had a good atmosphere.

Well located and the food was very good. I found the prices to be a bit high. I would recommend this place for steak. Salmon tartar was good. Plank salmon a bit overcooked but tasty.

This is the second time we visit this restaurant and are not enamored. Two of us ordered fish which was somewhat salty. One came with a risotto which was pasty. One of us ordered the burger which she couldn't finish. Only the sushi was good....More

I had dinner here with friends last night, it was a nice experience. The ambience is pleasant, the service was attentive but not overbearing. We all had prime rib, rare. The beef was aged just right and had a light buttery flavour, it was excellent....More

A nice place, cosy, and quiet. The food is good, but not the best steak I had ... The service is efficient and smily but could be a little bit faster. And, to my opinion, it is a bit too expensive for what you get.

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

We are located in the heart of downtown Montreal at the corner of University and Rene Levesque streets. We are steps away from the Queen Elizabeth hotel and a short distance from most downtown hotels. We offer delicious Angus steaks, fresh seafoood, and a terrific sushi bar.
