De retour à Montréal après une absence de cinq ans, le holder na pas changé toujours parfait du service au décor en passant pas la cuisine soignée et généreuse. Une adresse à ne pas manquer si vous passez par Montréal

Je suis allée manger chez Holder dimanche dernier pour une réservation de groupe de plus de 20 personnes. Lors de ces réservations, un menu simplifié est proposé au groupe. En réservant, mes amis se sont informés sur la possibilité d’accommoder un invité végétalien et cela ne créait aucun problème. Au moment de commander, je me suis informée au serveur sur les options disponibles. On m'a alors proposer une salade verte qui consistait en de la roquette et de la vinaigrette.

really fresh and delicious tartar! Went there for a birthday, a nice place to dress up and even go on a date.

Tartare et Atmosphère!

Super pour une bonne soirée de filles (ou de gars!!), entre amis, en couple, en famille... Très bonne ambiance, peut être bruyant pour certain, mais on y va justement pour l'atmosphère à la fois assez sophistiquée, mais surtout à la fête... Les must have: Tartare de saumon, parpadelle aux champignons, 1 petit verre de blanc (ou deux!)

DE-licious!

I have been twice to Holder now, and it did not disappoint either time. It was amazing. The fois gras poelé with gingerbread was incredible, we still talk about it! The service was friendly without being intrusive and they were very well informed about the food, and seemed passionate about it. Overall, it's a great place to go and eat. Worth every penny (to be honest, we were surprised it wasn't more expensive!).

Another Great Find

Went to Holder last night with friends and had only been once maybe 2 years ago. Pleasantly surprised to see very reasonable prices and the food was very good. Shared a couple of appetizers with friends, glass of wine, deserts (caramel fondant is amazing). I know they do Sunday brunch as well and will definitely check it out soon!

Décor très agréable, grande salle mais trés chaleureuse pareil. J'ai adoré entre amis, j'y retournerai certain pour faire découvrir a mon chum!

I was somewhat disappointed with our meal at Holder. We ordered french onion soup, seared foie gras, beef bourguignon, and the ribeye. We enjoyed everything but the steak was sent back twice to correct the cook of the meat. We asked for medium rare. It first came too well done, then came back as raw. When we sent back a second time, it came back as medium well. For $44 for a steak, j would have expected precise cooking to our liking. We did not send it back for a 3rd time because we were hungry and at that point had waited for some time for our food. Unfortunate that this has happened. the rest of the food was delicious, but was soiled by the cook of the steak.

Grea meal with great service. My veal chop was more on the medium well side than medium but was still delicious. The duck confit my guess had was also delicious. Great wine selection and probably the best whiskey sour I have had.

The restaurant had the perfect atmosphere; from the calm music and lighting, to the space itself. The staff and service were friendly and beyond kind, ensuring we were at our utmost comfort level. The staff were also knowledgeable, and helped give a wine suggestion/pairing that suited both my partner and I's meal; which was a very nice and complimentary wine indeed! Everything ordered came to us very fast. We chose to eat the veal flank and the daily special of rib eye steak. Both meals were extremely delicious and generous. Everything was well-priced too, with a lot of selection for dinner/drinks/desserts. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Montreal!

Take a trip to Paris without leaving Montreal

There are very few very large breweries of this kind in Paris; they're generally smaller in size. But I like the Holder, which has managed a beautiful modern take on the Parisian tavern. I'm a lifelong devotee of their salmon tartare!

Where to get your shepherd's pie fix in Montreal

Where to get your shepherd's pie fix in Montreal

Holder is a casual yet trendy restaurant in Old Montreal. The ambiance is always happening and the service is warm and attentive. While they are known for their French bistro fare, they serve one of the tastiest gourmet shepherd’s pies in Montreal. They traded the traditional ground beef for succulent melt-in-your-mouth lamb with mashed potatoes, served with sautéed onions in a bath of cognac sauce. It’s a must-try dish on a cold evening.
