I don't mind paying for fine dining if you get great service and food. ..service here not up to par...food pretty good and obviously fresh, but portions are extremely small. We dined here many years ago and loved it. I realize they just reopened but they didn't seem prepared. Waiter unfamiliar with menu items..not acceptable ...very disappointed. Had better meals...

Note that this restaurant is actually closed until January 2014 due to exensive rénovations. Also of note the Executive Chef Jean Soulard has retired and a new one with a lesser profile is now running the kitchen. So a lot of things might change with the new year and I suggest that you check the reviews coming after the restaurant... More

Best sunday brunch ever. Deserts that you dream about like Sucre a la creme crepes, macaroons, petit fours. etc. Seafood of all sorts and of course cheese! Best of the best

Even you are not staying at the Hotel. I worths a visit. Wonderful place. Delicious meal. Very attentive staff. It´s expensive. Onde of the most expensives in Canada. I think. But, if you have the money and you want be in a very special place, it´s a big deal...

I ordered the veal, and it was absolutely delicious! I usually don't even like meat, but this was incredible. The dessert was average but overall my whole family was very pleased with our dining experience.

We had a table overlooking the boardwalk and the St Lawrence river. Beautiful sunset view from our table. Service was great the food even better. Highlight of our meal was the table service Crepes Suzette. Awesome to watch and even better to eat. Be prepared to spend a few dollars.

This restaurant is a wonderful venue for a special dinner. Interesting menu, spectacular views - if you can get a table near a window, and outstanding service. They also have a great wine list.

Our meal here was superb. The service was almost overwhelming from start to finish. They were polite and attentive. ALL of them and every one of them inquired at the table during the course of the evening. It is a pricey place, however, the food was of the quality that you would expect. We had the Chateaubriand prepared table side.... More

We booked Saturday brunch weeks in advance and were glad we did as they were fully reserved and turning people away the day we were there. We were sat in the upper area but if possible ask for a table by the windows or the wonderful fireplace in the lower seating area as they seemed very nice. Wow! What can... More

Nothing to complain about the food. It is just perfect. The staff is professionnal and helpful. Some tables have a wonderful view over the St-Lawrence River and the Dufferin Terrace.
