Always have an impression that if you don't eat foie gras you haven't had the French cuisine! Really good foie gras. Generous amount. I think price is reasonable for a steak is it about 30-40$. They even have hot stone option! It is like cook it yourself! Absolutely love it! Next time in town I will definitely go back again.... More

Our family of five dined on hot stone plates and experienced a variety of meats. The hostess was very helpful with suggestions and the experience of cooking meat to your preferred taste was excellent. The presentation which included a mix of vegetables was also great. A fun experience for the whole family.

If you are looking for an enjoyable dinner with a homely feel, this is the place in Tremblant. Offering an option to cook your own meal, C'est la Vie is certainly a unique little place. We enjoyed the service and the atmosphere which is both comfortable and romantic. The salmon accompanied by pesto sauce was delicious and the potatoes memorable.... More

This was our first hot stone dining experience and we truly enjoyed it! We were welcomed and asked if we wanted to sit inside or on the porch. It was a chilly evening for August so the greeter assured us that a heater was on and escorted to a lovely table on the porch. As we were new to the... More

Service was not bad but there were a few mix-ups. The hostess was very friendly but did seem overwhelmed. The food was delicious but there should be full size plates to put the food on as it is cooked on the hot stone.

This place has everything that is needed for a perfect restaurant, except the service. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was lovely but the service needs work. We walked at 7:25pm for a 7:30pm reservation and we weren't greeted until 7:35pm. We sat on our table and nobody came to take an order until 7:55pm. Finally we finished our... More

I think because we had such amazing service and equally great meal the night before that we just expected the same from this restaurant. The service was disappointing from the moment we walked in,not really friendly at all. As far as the meal goes and yes we did do the hot stones and yes we did know that the cooking... More

Dear customer, I am really saddened that you did not appreciate your experience. We propose a wide choice of meats. Known meats but also games and exotic meats among which most cost very expensive. (Ostrich, kangaroo, camel, crocodile, elk, bison etc.) We respect the integrity of the muscle so that each can appreciate at best his experience. For those among... More
