My husband liked his halibut but it was very small. My chicken was scarce on the plate filled with other things. This is a very expensive restaurant and unfortunately was not what it could or should be. I gave it three stars because the staff is attentive and did give me a lovely tasty cake for my birthday.

For the price, I was surprised there was no egg station, someone to cook your egg to order. But lots of cold cuts,etc.

We always enjoyed the dining room here in the past (ten years ago) but this time the food was average at best. The dinner menu was very limited, the meal was overpriced and, quite frankly, not very good. Breakfast was even worse. If those weren't tasteless, powdered eggs I'd be surprised.

Three of us had dinner -- a longtime dream of one of our party -- just to be in the beautiful Frontenac. The food was good; the service was fun, friendly, appropriate and almost 100% attentive. We each chose the discovery menu, which allowed us to choose three appetizer sized courses and a cheese course and dessert. The Coconut Hot... More

I had the 7 course meal with 3 glasses of wine. There is a lack of generosity on the plate (minus one star) because a five star restaurant should show some generosity. Portions could be 10-15% larger without a problem. There is also a lack of generosity in the room. Some restaurants have free wi-fi for their customers. At the... More

The Champlain at the Frontenac Castle/Hotel in Quebec City is a great way to enjoy a wonderful meal and a great view of the old Port in Quebec City. The Hotel is huge and impersonal, the restaurant is just the opposite. Dinning is quiet, relaxed and the service is perfect. It is a great place for a business dinner or... More

I had the privilege of staying at the Chateau Frontenac for one week during a convention I was hosting. I was there on my own for a couple of nights before my husband the group arrived and decided to try the Champlain Restaurant after perusing the menu on line and deciding on the Halibut. Much to my surprise, when I... More

We treated ourselves to this restaurant to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. It is certainly much more luxurious than what we can normally afford or are accustomed to.

We found the restaurant options in the newly refurbished Fairmont Chateau Frontenac to be confusing. We had made a reservation at SAM after being told they had a dinner menu but it was just a bar menu. We were seated under a blasting music speaker so wanted to dine in a full menu restaurant. We then tried to go into... More
