I do not enjoy visiting a steakhouse frequently for a health reason since quite some time ago, but if someone asked me what’s our favourite place for a steak in Montreal, I would’ve picked Gibbys without the experience tonight. Gazpacho was really not good so I couldn’t finish even a quarter; Beef Wellington was rare when I ordered medium rare (but still good one!); Gibby’s cut rib steak was in much lower quality than before (better at Baton Rouge if I may); Monte Carlo potato was bland but salty; Rockefeller oysters were bitter (having assumed that they put too much liquor into the sauce or cheese), so we returned those and had the fresh ones but they were pretty much the same.
After the waiter was told that our last time visit “together” was a year ago, his manners became changed and kind of rude/condescending thereafter. What a strange guy. Gibby’s service couldn’t be better before if I remember correctly. Too bad.
Compared to the previous experiences (including the ones without my BF), only the elegant decor (& servers’ uniform) is still lovely.
I would rather go to Moishes or other excellent restaurants, believing now people’s saying “overrated.” Always feeling disappointed to see a favorite restaurant change.
