I've eaten here many times over the past ten years and have never been disappointed. I was a bit nonplussed to see the Louis-Hébert criticized by a previous reviewer for the old-fashioned style of the dishes. The cooking is what I would call traditional country-style French cooking: not chichi or post-modern, to be sure, but reliably tasty. On the most... More

This restaurant has three discrete dining areas, each attractive in their own way. The service was fairly steady. Our busboy, who took our reservation earlier in the day, was a nice young man. There were two gentleman circulating from table to table tending to folks who appeared to be 'regulars' in the area. They never circulated our way. The waiter... More

My girl said that to me across the table and I laughed because that summed it up. The service is wonderful, the atmosphere romantic, the food average at best in our opinion. The waiter mentioned everyone comes for the lobster pasta so she ordered it. It was finely presented but lacked something, an herb, a spice. The same for my... More

We made reservations for 8 people the evening before the start of our National Conference and actually arrived with 9. We were seated immediately upon arrival. No language barrier as the wait staff were bi-lingual and very polite. The menu looked very interesting as did the specials @ $20.50. The portions were sufficient, but not overly large. Basically, everyone ordered... More

Went for a quick happy hour drink with 4 friends. Drinks were watery. Service was slow. Server did give us a great review for breakfast the next day.

We've been twice to Louis Hebert and both time everything was excellent: the food, ambiance, service and the value. The attendants were very kind and polite and the food tasty and with a good presentation. What called our attention was that most of the persons at the restaurant at lunch time were locals. So this is not a place for... More

We went here for lunch on Friday 5th September. I chose the 'menu du jour' for lunch and ordered a soup and an omlette. My wife ordered a soup only and we both drank a glass of wine each. The waitress was typically French - vaguely disinterested in serving tourists expecially non-native French speaking ones (although my French is reasonable... More

Brilliant cooking. (We have booked for the next evening so that I can have what my partner had tonight.) Clearly high quality ingredients, well balanced flavours, cooked to perfection. Impeccable service. Excellent ambience. (We were inside in the main restaurant, but people outside seemed warm and happy - and those in the back room seemed cheerful. At least they applauded...

My first full day in Quebec I wanted to see everything; I walked until I was exhausted. Trying to find the energy to make it back to my hotel, I strolled along the Grand Allee, sidewalk bistro after bistro, looking for a place to eat and rest. A wonderful man welcomed me to a table and convinced me to stay.... More

Excellent dinner and atmosphere. There are lots of choices on this street, and this one is definitely worth it. Great outdoor seating as well.
