Still a Great Dining Experience

After reading some of the reviews, I was slightly apprehensive about the dinner reservation I'd made here. We'd eaten here several years ago and had a great experience. Upon entering one can definitely tell that renovations have taken place; evidence of the previous décor is long gone. However, the... read more

Went to this restaurant to celebrate our Anniversary. Had high hopes for a memorable meal but it was memorable for all the wrong reasons. I ordered the sea bass. It was a small portion (which I expected) and it was served with four leaves from a brussel sprout (yes, leaves) and two small radishes. Neither constitute a side dish in... More

While I booked my reservation to celebrate an anniversary, I wish I had talked to the locals before I went, as what they said we truly experienced. Arriving early, I checked in to confirm our reservation and had hoped we would be able to get a table near the window, which I was told we might. We had a drink... More

Interesting and delicious presentation of sweet and savory treats, though pricey. We were disappointed since we were kind of stuck in a spot where we couldn't see out a window. I ordered the rooibos tea and my husband ordered the sublime organic (rose and chamomile) which we both thoroughly enjoyed. The only two things we didn't enjoy were the blue... More

The chef's tasting menu was amazing and our server Etienne made our experience that much more special. If you want the best, go no further ...eat at the Champlain when in Quebec City.

We were there for the Sunday brunch. We celebrated a 40th wedding anniversary. Reservation is needed. the doors opens at 10:00AM so expect a line to form at the door before opening. The brunch is wonderful. Lots of everything from breakfast to lunch and deserts... wonderful deserts :) Because we were celebrating and told them when I reserved, they made... More

Came here after booking a table by the window one day in advance. As we arrived the lady who welcomed us (but did not take our coats) showed us to a table away from the window, even if several window tables were free. When we inquired, we got the window table. We noticed this happened several more times to other... More

We reserved the King's Table for our group of 12. It was nice because we could see everyone all the time! The meal... awesome! the service... awesome! It's in my books as one of my most unique places of dining.

A little bit of a foodie place (we're foodies), but don't let that chase you away. Very nice relaxed elegant dinning with attentive service. Nice contemporary decor. If you can get in the first level, you have a great view of the boardwalk along the river. The restaurant is in the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac. Wonderful food...definitely recommended!
