Our Story

Grinder restaurant is located on Notre-Dame street, in the heart of Griffintown. Indeed, this neighborhood located in the southwest of Montreal is dynamic and promising; residential and commercial projects are already underway.

The original decor screams Zébulon Perron (Furco, Buvette à Simone, Philémon). He created a comfortable and warm restaurant, kitchen and raw bar. Grinder characterizes itself by vintage and modern elements such as glass and metal.

On the menu, raw & cooked items: tartares, tatakis, ceviches, carpaccios, etc. Also on the menu, steaks and grilled or braised pieces of meats, all to be shared. Grinder also offers a variety of fish and seafood, served cooked or raw as well. More than a simple steakhouse, all food lovers will find something to their liking among their selection of fresh products.

A 100% of their wine list consists of privately imported wines, always changing with the seasons, and of course focusing on wines produced while respecting nature.

August 14 made reservations for 8 but was unaware that the reservations was for 2 hours only.When it came time to order dessert the waiter told us that if we wanted dessert we had 15 minutes to eat it because our time was up & that they needed the table for other clients.I asked to speak to the manager who aggravated me even more with her condescending attitude insinuating that we were told.I very politely told her that the people I was with were regulars at Grinder & never heard of such a thing & that it was my first time & surely my last time .After pointing out that we were not there for just coffee & cake .We had spent $650.00 & if not having put a time limit on our stay we could of very well spent another 2 to 3 hundred dollars more.I would of understood if it was closing time because it is only normal that one wants to go home after a long & hard day's work,Not the case here.Her attitude very unprofessional & very insulting for paying clients.Therefore in order to avoid unnecessary frustrations a well exposed sign should be place at the front door indicating their 2 hour policy. Never again!

Souper tardif sur l'éblouissante terrasse. Végétation, bois & toiles se mélangent, c'est vraiment des plus agréable & confortable. Musique qui augmente au fil des heures, on s'entend toutefois parler mais on oublie le souper calme & romantique à cette heure-ci. Service charmant & dynamique, de bons conseils sur les plats comme sur les vins. Imposante liste de vins, une large gamme de prix bien que peu de choix intéressants sous les 50$. Un menu varié dans lequel j'opte pour la recommandation du serveur : le Flétan Tandoori. Explosion de saveurs, mélange originale de coucous de choux-fleur,amandes, raisins, yogourt & les herbes de cuisson du flétan. Vient avec le plat un accompagnement, la purée de pommes de terre aligot est renversante. Un régal donc malgré le flétan un chouia trop sec. L'entrée de crevettes grillées avec ses accompagnements fut tout autant délectable & aux milles saveurs. Légère déception sur le tartare de canard & en contre partie une excellente bavette de boeuf. Facture des plus correcte vu la qualité & les généreuses portions, 100$ pour deux taxes incluses mais sans le vin, avec ça monte à 175$. Très plaisante soirée, restaurant chaudement recommandé, en particulier en été :).

Très beau restaurant branché dans le nouveau quartier de Griffintown. Cependant, attendez-vous à une facture salé, les prix sont assez élevés. C'est une belle ambiance festive où les gens sont là aussi pour la clientèle, beaucoup de jeunes couples branchés. À essayer entre amis mais pas pour un souper romantique!!

It would have been nice if at least one of the three (!!!) people at the front door had taken even a moment to acknowledge our presence when we arrived. Instead, they were more concerned with the seating plan than to actually greet customers. When they finally did (barely) notice us after a good few minutes (seriously!), they seemed annoyed that we had disturbed them by our arrival, on time, for our 7:30 pm reservation. This set the tone for the service for the rest of the evening. The food is good, but it just doesn't make up for the indifferent, borderline rude service. This place is popular, so it seems that the attitude from the front room staff is that you, the paying diner, should be happy that they let you in. So wait, be quiet, eat quickly, PAY, & leave...

Un de mes bons amis à moi & moi-même y sommes allés en fin de soirée pour une fringale. Nous avons choixi de séparer un tartare de boeud, qui était succulent. La serveuse du bar nous assure un service rapide & courtois, avec classe. Seul désavantatge: coûteux pour les portions! À réessayer, surtout avec la sélection de vins interminable & très intéressante.

Premiere fois au grinder Ambiance vraiment sympa Nourriture bonne Service déplorable. Aucun apéritif ne nous a été proposé. nous avons dut appeler le serveur pour pouvoir prendre un dessert. Impossible de prendre un café les additions ayant déjà été proposées. Notre serveur était là pour encaisser ses 15% sans se soucier du service.

Chic hot spot, for sure. The food's good, but you're easily distracted by all people who wanna be seen :) I've been a few times & have never been disapointed. Good tartares, veal, sides..not more than that.

Our first impression of the staff was unfortunately not very good. When we walked in, the host was fiddling with the seating chart for a few minutes before even acknowledging our presence & our waitress’ attitude was too relaxed & unprofessional. The kitchen was very efficient as the wait for our meals once we had ordered was barely noticed. & the food was delicious! All in all, the foodie in me was very satisfied with the meal & the designer in me really enjoyed the modern & trendy décor. The music was not aggressive nor was it too loud & the ambiance was very enjoyable. The courtyard-like terrasse is very inviting & bright. Also, the restaurant is open onto the terrasse, & this almost made me forget that I was sitting indoors!

Un peu dispendieux mais la nourriture est d'une qualité supérieur. On dit que les Jeudis sont à découvrir ! Bref pour un Samedi soir c'était parfait. Sacha notre serveur à su bien nous conseiller & était très attentif à nos besoins ce qui fait augmenter ma note. Somme toute je recommande fortement ce resto pour une soirée en couple, en groupe ou encore pour une first date du tonnerre !!! Je souhaite longue vie à ce resto :-) giod job guys !

Worth the trip. The best beef carpaccio I've tasted thus far. Melted in your mouth. The bavette was expertly prepared & melted in your mouth. Our waitress was very attentive & we lacked for nothing. Definitely a must try.

We had a Christmas work dinner with 18 people at Grinder on a Saturday evening. The ambiance was amazing. The food was perfect & the prices are reasonably low considering the quality, the service & the decor. All of the tartares are unbelievable ! The cuts of meat are outstanding. I personally had the veal chop with morille mushrooms, WOW ! Everyone really enjoyed their meal. The decor is really modern & warm. I would recommend this new, trendy restaurant for a nice couples evening or a group who is going to appreciate great quality food with the most professional service at a real affordable price. Five stars for this new restaurant.
