We just had one of the most enjoyable lunch experiences. We were seated on the outside patio. My husband had spaghetti with clams, one of his favorite meals. He thought this was one of the best he has had. I had the lobster bisque and a baby greens salad, with slices of orange, strawberries, and balsamic vinegar. We finished our meal with Cappuccino and a lemon tart. Everything was fantastic and our waiter was great - friendly, fun, and efficient.

We stayed at the that was attached and had breakfast and dinner many times. The food was delicious and the servers were very friendly. Highly recommend dining here when in Quebec City.

We have gone to this restaurant about 10 times this summer (2016) And the food is always delicious and consistent. One day for lunch, I forgot my purse with lot's of cash in it. After 4 hours I realize that I forgot it at the Restaurant and I went right away, and they transferred me to Mr, Laval Tremblay, maitre D of the resto, and yes he found my purse intact, everything in it. OMG there are still honest people in this wonderful world. We will definitely go back!

The terrace is beautiful and I think that is what the main draw to this restaurant is. However, the service is not great and the food is average.
When we first arrived at the restaurant we were told that we would have to wait 20 minutes for a table, that wasn't a problem and the hostess took our name and number and stated that she would call us when our table was ready. She said that there were two tables ahead of us so we walked across the street and sat on a bench. More than 45 minutes pass when we started to realize that a lot of people were being seated and were not having to wait. We approached the hostess and noticed that there were a few empty tables. She kinda just shrugged and said that she was "just about to call us", I doubt that. Our waitress wasn't friendly and she looked like she wanted to be somewhere else. To top off our evening there was a concert happening in the building beside the restaurant that let out for intermission and a bunch of people were smoking right beside us while we were eating. I learned that Quebec just passed a law earlier this year that people can't smoke on restaurant patios however people can literally just stand off of it and smoke into your food. This was disgusting and a very unpleasant experience. We weren't planning on getting a side of cancer with our pasta that night. Quite disappointing to say the least.

On our last night in Quebec before returning to Montreal we decided to do Italian. In looking in our guidebook, Il Teatro was recommended and we decided to give it a chance because it was located near our hotel and we were very glad we did. We had the good fortune to sit on the lovely terrace and look out at a wonderful part of the city.
My friend had the angel hair pasta with cheese and cherry tomatoes. I had the arugula salad and then the beef carpaccio. For dessert Tiramisu. The pasta and beef were very nice. The dessert ok. Our server was very accommodating and we were not rushed at all.
I would recommend your coming to il Teatro not only be cause of the pleasant food but during the evening the wonderful setting. Very reasonable.
