Comme un repas se doit d'etre une experience inoubliable a tous les points de vue, les deux proprietaires du Saint-Amour M. Jacques Fortier et le Chef Jean-Luc Boulay ont deploye depuis 1978 leurs energies afin de reunir une equipe passionnee et attentionnee, de la cuisine a la salle a manger. Le Saint Amour se veut figure de proue dans le rayonnement de la gastronomie quebecoise. Alliant tradition et innovation, Jean-Luc Boulay et son chef Benoit La rochelle misent sur les plus recentes techniques pour rendre hommage aux fines denrees de notre Terroir. Au fil des ans, notre table est devenue un endroit raffine et chaleureux ou le qualificatif de distinctive ne s'arrete pas a la cuisine, mais s'etend jusqu'a l'ambiance et au confort des lieux

This restaurant was recommended by a friend. It was truly a unique, very enjoyable dining experience. The food was first rate, our waiter very engaging and our server was busting with personality. The busboy was a pleasant young man with a pleasant personality. How many restaurants have you been to where you can say the same? Oh, did I mention... More

That's where Sir Paul McCartney went for dinner when he came in Quebec in 2008 for the 400th anniversary of the City of Quebec. We go there sometimes and the experience is always fantastik, The Chef is Jean-Luc Boulay, a frenchmen. He's probably the best in town. A bit expensive but it's worth it.

Le St-Amour is one of the best restaurant in Quebec City. Beyond the outstanding service, you will find disctintive food creations by Jean-Luc Boulay, one of the most eminent chef in Canada - based on unique ingredients of the Quebec gastronomy. For a first experience, I recommend the gastronomy adventure, that will allow you to taste a wide variety of... More

Once again we left enchanted from Le St-Amour. The decor is stylish and takes us in a more romantic era. The well crafted menu offers appetizers and entrées that are well presented and prepared as they should be. The wine list is extensive and sommeliers knowledgable. The service is first class. Enjoy !

We booked Le Saint Amour because it's so widely recommended. I don't get it. The food was delicious, but the place wouldn't even make a top 20 list in New York, let alone North America. And yes, crazy expensive. The bill was $700 for three of us, including 2 bottles of wine at $80 each. It was super 90's in... More
