Where else do you get your meal cooked at table side anymore.... properly! Go to this restaurant... and indulge yourself in some old school fine dining. It is an experience, rather than just a meal. And yes, this is the same place that Anthony Bourdain reported on and raved about, on his show Parts Unknown. Do yourself a favour and... More

The ambiance and décor is beautiful. Many of the menu selections are prepared and cooked at your table. I was worried that our very young (possibly lacking experience) waiter might be overcooking my husband's filet mignon and upon serving it, I was right. Thank God it's a tender piece of meat. My seafood platter sounded like heaven, but had a... More

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here while visiting Quebec. I ordered the special filet mignon and my husband had the peppercorn sirloin. Both of us enjoyed our steaks which were very tender. The sauces were also tasty. A small side dish with some mashed potatoes and a few pieces of vegetables came with our meals but they... More

The food was excellent and the St. Honore dessert was my favorite! I always eat here when I come to the city!

It was nice to have meal prepared table side. Duck a l'orange for two was wonderful! Price fixed menu was best value...this was not an inexpensive meal!

...for when they become busy. Early 5:45 pm reservation provided great service & table side prep as expected. However, after a wonderful 2 hour meal, my wife & I were ignored for over 25 minutes. We were getting ready to order dessert & coffee & Sauternes, but simply chose for our "check please". Too bad that our high expectations accompanied... More

We just happened upon this place and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good, the atmosphere and service was also good. We'd recommend it if you are looking for French cuisine.

The trip had started off badly, delayed and cancelled flights, getting us into Old Quebec city at 7pm instead of 10am. We asked our driver, where to get good lobster and this is where he sent us. Wow. We went at 8pm and ordered the Gaspe Crab and Hollandaise and the Lobster Bisque. I had the crab and could not... More

We were excited to try this after an amazing meal at Linitial. But the service was rushed, the duck was not so great, the atmosphere was old fashioned (at best), and the waiters were a little rude and frustrated that yet another tourist came into their restaurant. Don't get me wrong: it was "good". It tasted good. And it was... More
