Went for a birthday. The food was pretty good. The vibe is beautiful. The service was good too. Maybe it's because we were a larger group (11 ppl) but it was easier to just say forget about getting water because the servers had to be ask multiple times before it happened. Other than that, it was a nice restaurant. I would recommend it for a night out or a cute date night.View more

The first thing you see when you come in is a bunch of grey bus bins in front of the kitchen on the lower level, which isn't visually appealing. As we neared our table, I noticed a large tear in the leather bench. The menus were sticky on the outside, & had food stains on the inside. There was a very cold draft coming in from the nearby window, & we asked to be moved. The food, for the price, wasn't anything special. Our bill was nearly $500 for two people, for which price you'd expect to be blown away by culinary genius, which we were not. Don't get me wrong, nothing was bad, but nothing was particularly memorable. We enjoyed the oysters, although three of my dozen had shards of shell. The grilled mushrooms were also good, but again, nothing mind-blowing. The salmon tartare was good, but the avocado slices underneath the fish macédoine were unripe, & unpleasantly crunchy. My bone-in ribeye was cooked & seasoned well. Note that sides are extra. My partner's risotto was good, but slightly under-seasoned. My partner mentioned it had a supper-club vibe, which I would agree with, if there was a dance floor. Service was great, & our waitress was attentive & pleasant.View more

I was introduced to this restaurant on instagram & it caught my attention with the mention of $1 oysters 5-7pm. Parking on the street was easy to find on a Thursday & we were greeted warmly at the door. I had booked spots at the bar but we were the first guests through the door so they let us choose any table. The decor is modern & clean. We were served by Melissa who was helpful, cheerful & attentive. We started with the oysters & were impressed. In fact we ordered 2 dozen more. We also ordered filet mignon, salmon, French fries & Brussel sprout kimchi & were happy with our meals. I finished the night with a carrot cheese cake & coffee. Although on the expensive side, we were very happy with our dining experience & plan to return, particularly for the oyster special.View more

Was there on 2024.01.28 after being recommended to try this restaurant by my son. I would never go back. OMG, what a dissapointment. We ordered cocktails that were served 45 minutes later, & at the same time as our starters. We had mentionned to the server that we would be ordering wine with supper,. We expected to sip out cocktails slowly & then order the wine with starters & main course ! We started with a tomato salad (24$) & Calamari (?$). Both were good. I ordered the octopus with asparagus, well the octopus (47$) was overcooked & had to cut it roughly, & the asparagus (12$) was cold. My friend ordered a steak (65$) with mushrooms (12$) & she got it 10 to 15 minutes after I got my plate & they forgot the mushrooms....wich she received 10 to 15 minutes later ! The steak was dissapointing, half inch thick ! The same as we would have gotten at the grocery store.The server apologized saying that he was alone that night. Again, the server was nice but the service was the worst. I don't mind paying $$$$ for a good service & food, but this was awful. & to finish it off, the ventilation in the restaurant is pretty bad. The moment you enter the restaurant you can smell frying & the food. Had to wash my clothes as soon as I got home. & when you enter the restaurant, the section downstairs is a mess, what's going on there ? Was a mess.

I enjoyed the place quite a bit, one of the better restaurants I've been to in Montreal. Being from Vancouver I had the Vancouver pick me up & it reminded me of home. We went for the $1 oysters, they were not bad but not the best oysters. We also got mussels & the tar tar both were very good for 2 people. The ambiance & service is there, always made sure my water was full.View more

When there on a sunday night with my friend & we had the best time at Guilt & Ivy! We were there for the 1$ oysters, but tried a lot of plates & everything was delicious ! The service was also number 1, don't remember her name but It was the best & the sweetest one. She made sure we were good all night. Thank you!View more

I genuinely wanted to like this spot but it fell short on every possible level. They'd overbooked/double booked so our table was only ready 20 mins past reservation. The service was abysmal & scarce, you will be forgotten. You have to practically plead for water. The food is some of the most flavourless & overpriced you'll find. I had to douse my food with s&p & hot sauce to "make it make sense." For these prices & "taste", you might as well go to those franchise surf & turf chain restaurants. The bathroom/WC...good god. I'll spare the details & dealings. Let's just say that if a sanitarian inspector came by, it would be hard to justify something that dilapidated anywhere near a restaurant. What hurts the most was that this was a birthday celebration, I'd give anything to undo this experience. Other guests were obnoxiously dancing on tables & screaming a few tables away from us without much protest from the staff. Their online marketing is great & drew me in but it's just a matter of time until word of mouth catches up with the projected illusion. I don't understand how something like this can exist in a neighbourhood like Westmount but head the rating & run elsewhere.View more

Reserved a table for a saturday night because the menu had a lot items rhat sounded good. Parking was easily available & free. Service was good. Waitress was friendly & checked in often. The drinks weren't great. Old fashioned tasted watered down with basic bar ice & the mojito was far too sweet. Food was by far the worst part. From starters to mains, nothing hit quite right. We ordered the fried calamari & black truffle steak tartare & neither were good. We waited a long time for our mains & the waitress was kind enough to offer a round of drinks on the house. Once our food arrived, we realized that an extra round might have been necessary. The filet mignon was nothing to rave home about, & the octopus might have been thrown on onto a fire straight out of the water with the amount of flavor it had (not to mention that it took 10 seconds to cut through it). By the time we were done, we were so underwhelmed & aware of our two hour reservation time coming to a close (due to the long wait time) that we didn't even try to order dessert, & called it a night. Definitely part of the latest trend of restaurants more aimed to appear fancy than to give you what you pay for. Considering the amount we paid, we expected more.View more

Guilt&Ivy is a true hidden gem in Westmount. The ambiance of Guilt & Ivy is a blend of modern sophistication & cozy charm. The elegant decor, combined with the soft lighting, creates an inviting atmosphere that's perfect for a romantic dinner or a night out with friends. It's clear that attention to detail is a priority here. I recommend the Seafood risoto!View more
