    Four of us enjoyed breakfast at. Henri's. From the start we had high expectations from the Reidel service ware and the hustle of the staff. It was a fall day so we ordered hot breakfast with eggs of various kinds from the very complete menu. My guest noted to the waiter that his salmon bagel could use more salmon and it came to the table in less than 2 minutes. This is a full service restaurant that provides full service.

    Très belle salle à manger. Les plats (plateau de fruits de mer et burgers) étaient très bons. Le service excellent. Nous n'aimions pas vraiment la bouteille de vin que nous avions choisi. Le sommelier n'a pas hésité à la changer pour une autre qu'il nous a conseillé. Nous y retournerons

    Our table was not ready, although we had a reservation . We were asked if we wanted water: flat or sizzling. We asked for flat but we’re not told it was $9 for a bottle of Evian! We are in a country with limitless free water. We saw a waiter walking around with a cruche d’eau! That’s what we wanted and thought we would get. My tartare de boeuf was tasteless and the plate of risotto although it had lovely seafood was a bit small on the rice. Our waiter picked up our plates and didn’t even refill our empty wine glasses before leaving.

    We ate at the bar and what a mistake! The bartender paid very little attention to us, providing only minimal interaction. After the food arrived he never returned to ask if the food was ok or if we needed anything. My husband asked for bread which he never received. When the manager cleared our plates, my husband complained about the poor service. We were offered a free dessert but just wanted to get out of there. The entrees were very good but will never return due to such poor service. I gave the service one star but it deserved -10.

    Nous nous sommes installés et le temps d'attente avant que nous soyons servis était long. On nous a distribué nos menus et servi de l'eau 15/20 minutes après notre arrivée (plusieurs serveurs sont passés à côté de nous, à plusieurs reprises mais ça a tout de même pris tout ce temps avant que quelqu'un réalise que nous n'avions ni menus, ni boissons). Nous avons ressenti un vrai manque de prise en charge. Le serveur était peu disponible et cela prenait du temps lorsque nous avions besoin de quelque chose. À part des excuses de la part du serveur, un plat/dessert gratuit pour compenser aurait été apprécié. En ce qui concerne la nourriture, ce n'était pas à notre goût : le choix des "à-côtés" venant avec les plats principaux rendaient le plat principal en question peu appétissant. Pour le prix, la qualité et la quantité n'étaient pas au rendez-vous. Nous étions venus pour l'anniversaire de ma conjointe et l'expérience était déplorable.

    We had a lovely evening at the restaurant. The setting In the architecturally beautiful Birks jewelry building set a special tone to the evening, with high ceilings, soft lighting and the tables were far enough apart to feel comfortable. The food was spectacular! We had the scallop appetizer, butternut squash soup, which was delicious, and duck confit-truly the best duck we have ever eaten. The sommelier chose the perfect wine to accompany our meal. The service was somewhat slow, as they were quite busy, which is the only reason we gave it 4 stars instead of 5. However the server was very friendly and helpful. All in all, an incredible dining experience!

    Phenomenal experience in a landmark building. As a party of two, we went for brunch, and each enjoyed a cocktail. The menu at Henri Brasserie is very inventive, each item is something you’ll know, but with a twist. My Pain Doré was delightful, with a fruit pairing so perfect, you’d almost think it was a wine pairing. 10/10 would recommend, whether for a casual catch-up, or for celebrating a special occasion.

    No music, no ambiance, all you hear is fork knife noise and people talking ! Food is very bad, no flavour , worst egg Bénédicte I ever had !! 26 $ for a Bénédicte that was cold and tasted like crap !! Ridiculous , never going back there ! That’s for sure ! Very disappointing, because I’ve many times for diner there , and I did enjoy it a lot actually ! You should consider having a better chef for brunch or give them a better training really !

    Disappointing food: homemade smoked salmon was not tasty at all, crème brûlée not well executed (no contrast hot/cold, too liquid, not a strong 'cream' taste). Wines are very expensive (red bottles start at 125$). Quite noisy due to a table of drunk people to whom no attendant told to behave quieter. No worth the price.

    One of worst restaurant I have ever been. Overpriced. Service made me feel not confortable. Restaurant was empty at beginning, they put us next to the only table that had someone to make sure we didnt have any privacy. We had to ask for another table. The music playing was poorly chosen, felt I was in an elevetator. The crwod appeared like it was only rich people staying in a hotel and using the hotel restaurant. Montreal has tons of excellent and cool restaurant so I would definitively not pay to go to this place and neither should you.
