Our server Alex M was good. The ambiance was perfect, except for the curtains being closed beside our table at 11(?)pm; I understand the reason, just don't like it. The only real complaint was that the food was only ok, it took awhile to arrive, and unfortunately most of the dishes were not as warm as I would expect. We did not say anything at the time because we were hungry and didn't want to wait any longer. A great spot for drinks, music, and people watching.

Great place to have a drink! We had supper and spent about 45$ each on many different dishes. Unfortunately the dishes were quite dissapointing. The guacamole was missing salt, the crab cake had a strong fishy smell to it and we had it before, the Papaya salad had no taste seemed like it was just shredded with sprinkles of peanuts(the waiter said it was going to be removed from the menu soon), octopus very chewy and the shrimps hard. The chicken wings were giant lol that was a turnoff unfortunately for me (god knows how they were raised). On a brighter note the waiter was very nice and I would definitely go back for drinks but no food for me!

One of my favorite places has yet to disappoint! Always an amazing time at Joverse. The food was delicious and accommodations were made for one of my friends with a dairy allergy! Manny and our waiters were great! Would definitely recommend and will be coming back ASAP! :)

We had a surprise party for my wife's 40 th birthday. With the help of Manny, we had reservations at 7. In which we as a group were able to chill out and catch up, as the night progressed chill out time slowly turned to party time and before you know it the place was jumping with amazing music and good vibes!!! The service we had was amazing and we were treated great from 7 until 1. Great atmosphere, great times. Thanks to Manny and the staff for making my wife's birthday exactly what she was looking for.

No fault to our waitress, I would have more then one for big groups. She did a good job but we were so many anotber would have helped for getting orders from our whole section. All in all we had a fun experience and would come back.

Food was really good and service was until we asked for our bill. We split the bill and the bartender tried to act like my cousin didn't give him her credit card to swipe. The manager got involved and accused us of not wanting to pay our bill (meanwhile, I had just paid my half). The manager got security involved and threatened to call the cops on us. They overcharged us as well (3 extra drinks). Very unprofessional staff...we were treated fine until the end and were accused of not wanting to pay our bill.

Very nice please but pretty much empty. No more DJ on Thursday's? The food is ok but nothing special, way over price, small portions. A cocktail of 14$ with LOT'S of ice, no alcohol??? The service was in general ok, except for the Oysters guy! I would make him manager. ;-) We won't go back anymore. :-(

The place is nice, music and service. However, thefood, terrible! Had the 26$ hanger steak with chimichurri. The steak was not fresh and tasted old. I was lucky to have a spoon full of chimichurri. It would have helped with the bad taste of the steak! Also had the duck poutine, not good. Duck had a weird taste and it lacking sauce for the fries. However, the fries where good. I not will return, not worth my time and money. Very disappointed.

Downside: We were sitting upstairs, it was very cold. Portions were slightly small. Upside: Service was excellent, given by Alex, food was great, although the plates were small.

Thank you for the excellent service you have offered. I hosted a party in the red room and could not have asked for anything better. Attentive, helpful and polite staff across the board. Room was clean and well set up. Everyone was courteous. My guests and I greatly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for everything!

The food was really good. The restaurant wasnt even full, but it took the waiter a really long time before coming to take our orders and to give us water. It also took a long time before getting our spoon for the oysters and the dip for the chip and dip.

Very nice place, good ambiance and decor. The food could be better. All the plates were somewhat warm, it seems they been sitting long time in the kitchen before they brought out the foods, also the hanger steak were lacking of flavors.

I can say without a doubt that Joverse offers the best customer service. The food was tasty, well presented and very reasonnable price. The bar staff is always smiley & quick to serve. For the last year, this has been our new go to and this is in part due to the great service. Thank you for treating each customer with such care.

I was extremely disappointed with the service at Joverse. Firstly, the host was sitting at the bar drinking when we arrived, rather than waiting to seat people who were entering the restaurant. Once at the table, we had to wait at least 20 minutes before we could order a bottle of wine. Our waitress had absolutely no knowledge of the wine list, which is extremely unprofessional. Then, we waited 40 minutes for our waitress to take our food order. She only had four tables, but was very fixated on one group of older men who had ordered a bottle of gin. Anytime I tried to get her attention, she was hanging around them (taking pictures, flirting, dancing), clearly hoping to get a larger tip from their table. The food was actually good, but the portions were quite small for the price. Overall, seriously unimpressed with this place. I doubt it will stay relevant for too long. No one wants to be at a restaurant where the staff think that they are better than the people they are service. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There are far better restaurants in Montreal.

This was my first time at Joverse and definitely not my last. Everyone from the bouncers, to waitresses and management were pleasant and accommodating. I celebrated my birthday with 20 friends - starting in the red room at 9:30pm then migrating to the action upstairs. Music was great, drink selection was varied, staff always available. My only frustration was with the bathroom stalls. The locks on a few doors were broken and they became dirty quickly through the evening. All in all the experience was top.

Fun spot. Was very empty at 7:30 when we arrived, but it turned in to a major bar around 9:30. Was a great spot for dinner followed by drinks with friends.

Fun Montreal spots to enjoy a traditional 5 à 7 experience

Fun Montreal spots to enjoy a traditional 5 à 7 experience

It’s easy to recognize the time of day when hundreds – if not thousands – of workers flock to restaurants to celebrate Montreal’s workday special, the 5 à 7. It’s a precious after-work tradition that could simply be described as happy hour, but with a Montreal touch that makes all the difference. Either sit at the bar or join a group of friends, and leave the work-day stress at the door.
