Like most skyscraper restaurants, 737's kitchen has at times had difficulty living up to the view; but what a view! Perched atop Place Ville-Marie, chef François Da Ponte takes diners through a solid menu of world cuisine in lavish decor. Dishes include Eggplant Caviar with tomato and tarragon, Calamari Cake with warm goat cheese, and the 737 Steak Tartare. Desserts are presented with flair, and might include the Banana Flambee for Two. With a modest selection from the impressive cellar, dinner for two should top out at around CAD100.
We were a group of 30, slated to eat at 9 pm while watching the Old Montreal fireworks (England) at 10 pm.
A 10:30 pm there was not a single piece of bread even served at the table. Some people had butter, others had not. At 12:30 pm, despite wanting to speak to the manager (the Maitre d' refused!), no dessert was served in this Table d'Hôte.
The food was mediocre.
This resto has 1 unisex toilet for the whole resto.
I would hate to think of a fire and people having to run down 37 floors.
Montreal is know for its marvelous restos; this one should be known for 737 reasons not to go there.
Do yourself a favor if you want conserve your date: g somwhere else.
30 years ago my wife and I lived in northern NY about an hour from Montreal. We regularly enjoyed going to Altitude 737. We just returned (November, 2009), and found it to be essentially the same--great for reconnecting with memories. The drinks were excellent (try the 737 Manhattan, made with Quebec maple syrup of all things!), the service (bartender Anna) was extraordinary,the ambiance was relaxed, good for conversation, and the food was very good (cheese plate, calamari, seafood bundles, salad). And yes, the view is amazing. Skip the disco. The bar has always been the place to go at Altitude 737, and it is reasonably priced.
Don't miss it.
I was there on October13 2007 with all my family and I was very disapointed of the experience. First of all I thought that Altitude 737 was an high class restaurant but it is not. The food was terrible, I choose the fish from the Table d'Hote no A La Carte menu, and it was so salted that I couldn't eat it, the cook behind the counter was leaking his fingers off the shrimps cocktail plates that the servers not very well dressed brought to the tables. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone and I think it was very expensive for the meal that we had. In other way don't waist time and money in this restaurant it does not worth the view for the food. A diner at the Queens Elisabeth Hotel where the service and food is hundred times better would have been a better choice for the occasion of my mother 80's birthday.
For $45, I was somehow very disappointed with the quality of the steak I ate. Not to mentionned it was overcooked (I had asked medium rare, and it came more like well done).
I do not recommend this restaurant in Montreal. I had a better experience at L'Acad�mie, which has a better value for the money.
