Though this isnt really what you are looking for, if you have time for a snack and come across an “Ashton’s” stop in for an amazing poutine!!!

There is some amazing Mexican but it’s outside of the typical areas most visitors get to so it depends on your comfort in wandering. My personal favourite is El Sombrero near Station Jean Talon (http://www.restomontreal.ca/en/718/El-Sombrero).There’s also Manana (right next to Station Sherbrooke) which is pretty good.

I second the recommendation of looking on Chowhound, or you can also use RestoMontreal which allows you to search by area of the city (if you know neighbourhoods), type of food, specific features (BYOW, for example), etc. Member restaurants typically have their menus posted, and all restaurants give a ball-park of price ranges.

I don’t have any steakhouse rec’s but I’m sure you could find something through RestoMontreal. If you find something you like the sound of but want opinions, let me know! I’ve been to a lot of different kinds of restaurants in the city… It’s hard not to eat out here all the time 😉

Fiance and I _loved_ Le Petit Moulinsart. It’s a Belgian restaurant with a wonderful little patio in the back. The food was delicious (I recommend the saffron chicken stew and Fiance loved the mussles), and the atmosphere is quaint.

Two of my face restaurants in Montreal are Mexican! Carlos and Pepes on Peel street between Ste.Catherine and Maisonneuve. And also Three Amigos (on Ste. Catherine west I believe) is awesome. 


For steakhouses, the two that I have been to are The Keg (somewhere downtown) and du Vieux  Port in the old port is very classy (more on the pricier side though)


I also recommend, if you want a real Montreal experience, to go along Duluth or Prince Arther street (the good sections on both are between St. Laurent and St. Denis – the cobblestone part) to one of the trillion “bring your own wine” restaurants. And even sit out on the terrace if weather permits. Though those areas are full of Greek and Italian restaurants. 

Have fun!
