This was a great find. The close proximity to hotel we stayed at (Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac) was excellent, we simply walked over and were there within 5 minutes. We enjoyed the food, ambiance and service. We would go again. Note getting menu items that...More

Table-side dining experience, a few steps away from the Frontenac. The other reviews were accurate. Delicious, and fabulous service. I had a table-side mustard steak, and hubby had the fillet mignon. Both were delicious. Won't be disappointed!

A restaurant where the wait staff are better dressed than the clientele. Good food but not great, very expensive, large wine list, and great service. The issue was overcooked vegetables which took me completely by surprise in a restaurant of this caliber! Perhaps if there...More
