When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Saint-Catherine’s Street is a very long street that weaves through several different neighbourhoods in Montreal. There is a lot going on here, lots of restaurants, pubs and shopping. I actually ended up seeing Emmanuel Arceneaux of the Elks walking down the street the night before the game. In hindsight, I should have stopped to say hi and get a selfie with him. I ended up walking along Saint-Catherine’s Street several times during my week-long stay.

I ended up walking the whole of this street by accident as I got lost. But it has so much to offer. It has the upscale shopping then it is a walking only are in the Arts district. Then it goes through the old village. Each area distinct in its own right. I feel like getting lost and wandering the street ended up being a treasure and made for a great afternoon.

Rue Ste. Catherine is a street in Montreal that has a variety of different shops to visit. Very busy. Lots of food, lots of hookers, lots of bum asking you for money, some parts are dirty some parts are clean.

Very entertaining to see for sure.

Very interesting and fun to find a downtown shopping street that thrives in the era of internet shopping. Very lively, lots of people around all of the time. And besides the shopping, there are churches, food, movies, it's downtown!

Seems to have recovered nicely from Covid, lots of people around, shopping especially, but also headed to work or to eat. Lots of stores here, a big arts center, a big movie complex, lots of entertainment. The heart of commercial downtown.

The top Premium brands are here, the top restaurants, more than three shopping malls... It looks to me that Montreal's GDP take place here. All kinds of service you may find in this street and probably that is the best location in town hotels.

This street in Montreal is awesome for shopping with several shops all around. Several restaurants are also present alongside this street. Certainly worth visiting.

For the last two years Ste-Catherine has been under a make-over. From McGill Street going east it is a bit of a construction zone. It is difficult to find parking around this area however Ste-Catherine will always be known for the Street in Montreal. There are lots of shop, restaurants, bars and things to do. You can access all the underground shopping malls from this street. The more west you go from McGill Street the more luxury boutiques you can find.

Rue Ste.-Catherine is an interesting place with both good and bad qualities. Since I live in New York I know dirty streets, but this by far was the dirtiest street I have ever visited. Everywhere you went there was a fowl odor of waste and bleach. One day as I was walking down the street a man siting on the floor just threw up his beer all over the sidewalk. Still this is the hippest street in Montreal lined with boutiques and cafes, and like the reviewer said before me there were a lort of strip clubs. Still the bad balances out with the good since attractions like Philips Square, Christ Church Cathedral and St. George's Presbyterian Church are located on the street. The street also intersects with many fancier avenues for shopping.
