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

We love to eat at top restaurants and this one will go down in our top 10! I nothing on the menu could possibly disappoint. We did the Discovery meal which is the chef's choice for the night.

I keep a list of 5-best meals ever in the back of my head. This restaurant vaulted into that personal pantheon from the first bite. The salmon appetizer was almost too pretty to eat, and tasted divine. Every dish was complete -- just the right size, right seasoning, right presentation. Plenty of time to talk with my friends, interrupted by... More

We celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at this very delightful restaurant. When making a reservation, the restaurant continually communicated with me making me feel like it was a very personal experience. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and our whole evening was wonderful.

Changed reservations we had at another restaurant in order to experience this top rated restaurant. Although good food and pleasant wait staff, not what we were expecting for an expensive meal. No one offered us assistance for at least 20 minutes after we were seated. It appeared that the kitchen was overwhelmed as no one was being served. There was... More

Lobster bisque, a mushroom "declination" (different varieties of mushrooms each served in a different preparation) were a great beginning to the dinner in a plant-filled, pretty dining room. My husband had venison and I enjoyed perfectly prepared filet with foie gras and the most amazing, rich and delicious red wine béarnaise sauce ever. We ended the evening with a ball... More

My wife and I enjoyed the 5-star dining. It's just wonderful - service, quality, ambience. The price is not out of reach for 5-star dining. We will go back next time when we are in town. Please see attached photos for what we had for dinner.

This is a lovely restaurant (and you definitely need a reservation for dinner), located in a quiet street near the main walls of the old city. We were warmly greeted and taken to our table in the atrium which is a delightfully decorated room; our server, Myriam, was friendly and efficient. We decided on the seven course 'Discovery Menu', which... More

The host said it's all right, then sat us in the 2nd class area. Where a baby cried and where it wasn't called an atrium, it didn't have any art and no beautiful fauna, and nobody else was seated. It was as if we stank.. We felt desolated and a bit embarrassed. No one offered a word of excuse, but... More

Bonjour, I am really surprise but more than anything sorry that you felt left behind because of your table assignment. The atrium is of course the most popular room and is often requested on reservation, but be assure that we do not considerate our private room nor our semi private room as second class space.

We were the only two in the place for a very late lunch. We did not know what to expect but the experience was utterly wonderful. Great food, amazing service and adorable atmosphere.

This was an absolute culinary experience. Plates are dressed as art pieces. It is a pleasure for all senses. The place is also very quiet, perfect for a "tête-à-tête". We had a chance to visit the very expansive Wine cellar which speaks for the attention the owners take to offer their customers the best choices to please their palates.
