Six of us came here for a dinner and it was pretty lively and a good dinner crowd for a Monday evening. The restaurant is on the western edge of old Montreal on McGill just 1/2 block north of St Paul Oest street. It is inside a large stone-faced building in suite 100.
It is like a downtown restaurant in many cities, filled with some businessmen in suits, but on this evening there was a lot of tables full of 30 somethings enjoying group dinners. Our server was a smiling and efficient woman who made our meal well paced with wine (decent selection but not stuffy in range), appetizers (about $10), mains (averaging about $20 - $25) and desserts (roughly $8 average).
For appetizer I had a chilled salmon gravelax, very good! Others had the fisherman's soup, small salads, salmon tartar, beef tartar and gazpacho. For mains we had Hangar Steaks with Frites, special Halibut in a cream sauce topped with veggies, and I had the Duck Confit on a bed of greens with country potatoes. We enjoyed a couple of bottles of Ortas 2009 Rasteau Rhone. Desserts included a lemon mascarponi, creme brûlée, and a chocolate cremieux with coffee ice cream and sauce.
Everyone enjoyed their dinner at our table, and it seems everyone else in the restaurant were smiling and enjoying good food, wine and friends.

Meh. This is a huge, loud, restaurant in Montreal's Old-Port. Food is pretty good. The kind of place for a party or for a group of friends. I tend to prefer smaller intimate places. That being said, Holder is a good restaurant... but there are many other out-of-this-world-good restaurants in the Old Port, so this would not be my first choice.
