Had a really fantastic dinner here. The oysters were nice and fresh, our mains were out of this world (best caesar salad I've ever had), and the deserts were to die for! Definitely save room for the strawberry shortcake when you are there.

Great Place! Food is well prepared and each dish has it's own special flavor. We were a party of 6 and everyone loved it! The fish drew raves and the lamb was delicious. If you like a great ambiance, personable, entertaining and knowledgeable staff and a chef that is forging his own path,,,, this is it.

We are visiting Montreal and had a wonderful family dinner here tonight! We would definitely return. The food was fresh and seasonal, and the service was so friendly and accommodating to our family (which includes 3 kids). The wine selection (we drank what the waitress suggested as pairings for our food) was delicious and our waitress was very helpful in navigating our need for gluten-free. The... more

Had a wonderful meal here. Rib steak for two with herb butter and mushroom onion sauce was excellent, cooked to medium rare spot on, lightly coated with Montreal steak spice. Tuna steak lightly seared just right went well with lentils and mint. I am withholding a star because even though the wine list was interesting and extensive, only three reds were available by the glass, and the pour was... more

Five stars in all departments.

The feeling I got entering, whilst there, and leaving was all just so welcoming and real. The chef is soooooo committed to his clientele and it shows at every second. He is so relaxed while he cooks that it would make anyone at ease. The staff is all quite similar too; friendly, welcoming, knowledgable and honest.

Gus is comfort food at its finest. The place... more

The chef just wants you to be happy.

It's a friendly and casual looking place but a lot of thought and attention to detail goes into the menu.

Standouts: Foie gras tacos, Cesar salad, steaks.

I agree one should sit at the bar.

When you're weary from traveling you usually get extra hungry and don't event realize it. When you reach this level of hunger and fatigue the last thing I know I want to do is make food decisions. My thought is "bring me a bit of everything and I'll figure it out".

Now that's an expensive way of thinking but when your colleague is a neighborhood regular at a place like GUS, he or she will be... more

If I lived in this hip area of Montreal, there's no doubt I'd be a Gus regular. Even as a temporary visitor, I felt the good natured charm that encapsulates your whole being at this French brasserie.

We sat at the bar (aka, the best seats in the house) and were able to converse with Dave throughout our stay. Not only is he the Canadian doppelgänger to LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, he's also... more

One of the most delicious Cesar salads I've had, to date. Exquisite fois gras confit. Service was top notch to boot

Discovered this restaurant recently. We called in at 5 pm, hoping to get a reservation around 9 pm for 2 people and we got it. We did ask to sit at a table, but in the end, we sat at the bar. For starters, I ordered an old-fashioned cocktail... it was okay, not the best I've had.
For entrees, we had the sausage/pieuvre one with the nachos/foie gras one. The pieuvre was tender, but the portion... more

Best fudgy chocolate cake with Baileys cream cheese frosting is beyond superb. Had it three times so far, two out of the three were just amazing. (Of course, their lamb shoulder too!) Anybody who undermines the value of Gus' chocolate cake is plain wrong.

If you don't like the service (because you didn't like the way the waitress handled customers at another table because people were waiting... more

Gus! The first thing I thought of, naturally, was the fat mouse in Cinderella. I knew things were going to go well after that.

We arrived to a beautiful and charming restaurant and were immediately seated. Our server switched flawlessly from French to English as they seem to do so well in this part of the world and as he listed the dishes, I knew we were in trouble. Give me all the things!... more

This is my go to restaurant for every single mood and I have brought pretty much every food snob that I know to here and they all all left fully converted...not to mention stuffed! Sitting at the bar chatting and watching David is a delight. Marshmallow sweet potatoes, ceasar salad and fish of the day have been my major highlights so far out of the 10+ times I have dined here. The menu is small... more

The very best little spot in Montréal - Gus and the entire staff are fantastic! Not to mention the food is always great! (I have been there a dozen times) - if I were you, I say you gotta try it!!

This place is simply divine. From the salmon tartare to the roast beef to the tarte, everything was made with care.

It is one of those great places where the chef puts his heart into each dish. Everything was fresh and made with care. The ceasar salad was made fresh to order (even their pancetta is sliced to order), they home make so many of their sauces. It was my first time trying home made... more

The wine. THE WINE. The staff. The salmon tartar. The mussels. THE DESSERT. I can't actually remember what it was called but it has Jameson poured on top and I am speechless.

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my meal at Restaurant Gus. Thanks to all of the staff who are amazing. I will be back!

I have been to this restaurant twice and like it a lot. The menu is not that long, but the focus is on seasonal ingredients (they do vegetables very well) and (for main courses) meat. There is a good wine list, with a lot of private imports. As for wine by the glass, on both occasions I was offered one that wasn't listed on the backboard. I'll be back for sure.

Absolutely amazing. Delish cocktails, amazing seasonings and probably the best bavette I've ever had. All the while I was scarfing down this amazing meal I was able to watch the Habs on their bar-side television. The staff are so friendly and the chef went over the entire menu with me explaining every nuance and detail of his grub. Will definitely be back. It's also right next to Notre Dame des... more

Really enjoyed my experience at Gus.

The restaurant is small so an intimate setting which is great, we sat at the bar, and we had a blast with the chef and waiter, very nice people and great conversation.

As for the food, we shared the octopus as an entrée, it was perfectly cooked and tender, worthy of any spanish restaurant. As a main I had the tartare which was very well seasoned, and the... more

In a party of 4. Two of us had poisson du jour, scallops (yea I know), which were grilled & served on bed of polenta. Excellent. Scallops done to perfection & polenta creamy with slight nutty (hazelnut?) flavour. We also had red beets & grilled red peppers. both a pleasure to consume. One minor complaint, the Green salad was tasty with very good dressing but the type of arugula was mostly stem... more

So we called up Gus restaurant, spoke to David Ferguson on a Friday afternoon to get a possible reservation for the same evening. Not a problem at the bar! We arrive to be greeted by David, knowing him from Joli fou, we get our place at the bar right in front of David.
We get a drink, take a look at the menu, friends had said it was more of a comfort food menu, decided on a gigot de agneau, and... more

Only open for a few weeks, but I've been stalking the door for ages it feels like, waiting for Gus to open. Firstly bc it's in a part of my neighbourhood where I already love to spend time drinking and dining, picniking and knocking down pins; secondly because wise foodie friends from Enroute had tipped me off to this being the eventual new homebase for the crew from Jolifou a few months back;... more
