Passed by for a late night bite and drink. The food was really good. I enjoyed the vibe and music as well.

Love the bar, but Friday night the bouncer was beyond crazy. He legit threatened to kill me because I asked why he wouldn't let my friend in, even though we had a table and space for multiple extra people. What kind of place has security like that, especially in the village. Unacceptable behavior....

One of the best bars in the village I must say. Also got to meet two local French guys that were quite the experience, so glad to talk with them

Cool spot. Definitely relaxed with a good vibe.It goes without saying that They are very lgbtq friendly here. The drinks are delicious. The bathroom is one large unisex bathroom.

I was visiting Montreal and was looking for a good bar to find a few drinks, and decided to visit this bar as I had saw good reviews. Overall the service was good and the staff were friendly. I ordered a drink that was about $13 but it felt like it was more ice than drink. One of the staff members however rectified this and I had a couple more drinks before calling it a night.I liked the vibe but the drinks were really expensive for what you got and I was a bit annoyed at the fact I had to pay every time I ordered a drink. This isn't a standard I've encountered before - but on the flip side I can understand the business trying to mitigate losses from dine and dashers, if that is the issue.

It was fairly busy but nothing crazy, waited almost 20 minutes to be served, we said to a member of staff we were ready to order she said she'd come back, but she walked passed us another 5 times, luckily we were served by somebody else before we walked out. Pretzel was good, wish it had a different sauce as not the biggest fan of mustard, this too took about 20 minutes to come. Bit expensive but drinks were fine, didn't taste like a double and had more ice than drink but can't complain.

I've been at Renard a number of times, and it's typically been quite nice. The last two times, however, were not so much. A few weeks ago, I went with friends. We had drinks and food, before ordering a second round of drinks. We asked once, twice, thrice, and never recieved them. So, we went elsewhere.Last week, I decided to give Renard another shot. A friend and I sat at the bar and ordered drinks. We were talking and I realized that my drink -- which was half full -- had been taken without anyone asking if I was done. So, I asked the bartender about it, who was not in a very good mood; he poured me another drink and I thought it was resolved. But then he charged me for it! It suffices to say, I'm not very impressed.

Went in for a quick drink. Didn’t happen. Was busy with few staff. Placed an order (beer) with one server, waited 15 minutes, 2 other servers checked in but drinks still didn’t come. We left.

We had an event on March 19 that ended up not going as planned. We were walking outside debating on where to go and even wanting to go home. My friend & I passed in front of this place and she said she wanted to try it. I was skeptical because our night was already not the best and I just wanted to go home at that point. I went for my friend.When we got there the place was packed. Not only was the bouncer in a good mood, he was cracking jokes, made us burst out laughing and it set the mood for the rest of the time we were there. The music was fan-freaking-tastic! I made my way over to the bar which was hard to access and I looked at the barman to my right on the computer and asked if I could place an order since I couldn't access the bar directly. He took the time to take my order, was very patient with me, and then I realized he literally planned the evening to just take orders while the barmen were making the drinks. That is not at all the same service or vibe I got at another bar the same night.Everyone was in a great mood, the music was amazing, the planning and execution from the management was just brilliant! Honestly, this made my night! Thanks for everything! Will definitely be coming back!

A good bar with a warm ambiance for an early drink. Good music. Small dance floor opens up later at night

Lovely little bar, very friendly waitstaff. Great vegan options to nibble on and a very good selection of spirits.If you're in the area, do yourself a favour and drop in.

Too loud music to get heard. Drinks that aren't worth the price. Half glass of ice for an Aperol spritz that was served in a champagne glass. I looked around and all the cocktails were in small glasses. So much hype for a bar that is ' in'. I prefer the competitors: value for money and service.

My new husband and I came here during our honeymoon visit to Montreal intending on having one quick drink, but Sasha was so sweet and welcoming that we ended up staying for hours! Super friendly atmosphere, great staff, and a nice selection of drinks. We will definitely return on our future visits to the city!

Nice place! You need to pay in advance so every time you order something extra you have to pay. Its their policy but it's a bit annoying for the customer.

Great ambience, nice music and friendly staff! The perfect place to have a drink with friends, a significant other or maybe to find your special one. Highly recommended!

Great ambiance and interior look (I love the glass that hangs on the ceiling). The staff was courteous; the snacks, delicious. I also appreciated the variety of music played.However, from where I was sitting, the music was too loud. It was hard for me to have decent conversations with my friend. Staff should consider turning the volume down when customers are sitting at the rear of the establishment.

Always have a drink here when you’re in Montreal! I was here for Pride, so needless to say, it was jam packed! The bathroom is pretty cool, with the mirrors and flower wallpapers. Coming earlier is better, especially during the summer and Pride.
