good dinner in a monument

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... read more

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

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!

We had a business dinner for a group of 30 people from a pre-set menu with limited choices. The food quality was exactly what I would expect from a fine dining French influenced restaurant at a classic hotel: excellent. For example, the beef dish was offered with different degrees of cooking and all requests were served as ordered. Doing this... More

We are local people in Quebec that needed to celebrate an 80th birthday. Chose Le Champlain even though we've had mixed reviews from friends. It was even worse. Service was poor, temperature too cold, wine unavailable, meat not properly cooked (they did even asked when taking orders), and the plates came with almost no sides, at 41$. And none is... More

I had much higher hopes for this restaurant, tucked inside the iconic Chateau Frontenac, the international symbol of the great City of Quebec. What we found here seemed to be what many "fine dining" establishments should seek to avoid - inattentive service, average food, and a sense of self-importance which comes off as misplaced. We started with a meat and... More

I've liked the old decoration , it was reflecting more The Chateaux experience. But I must say renovation we're nicely done, it resembles more a lounge atmosphere. Food is good, service excellent. Limited Wine list. Must trie the Cheese.

We ordered French Onion Soup and a Caesar salad. The soup was tepid in temperature and there was no broth - lots of cheese, onions and bread but no soup! The Caesar salad was mostly dark-leaf, limp romaine cut into too-small pieces. The bacon bits tasted like the artificial stuff. There were no croutons, no anchovy, no egg and just... More
