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 Patrick Dubé misent sur les plus récentes techniques pour rendre hommage aux fins produits 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.

A GREAT FOODIE RESTAURANT

Located on a side street - 48 Rue Sainte Ursule in Old Town. The service is exceptional with helpful waiters and staff. They have a very large wine selection.

We returned to Quebec City where we had spent our honeymoon, staying in the same type of room in Chateau Frontenac, and we wanted a special place to dine for that evening. I had done my research and Le Saint Amour sounded like it would be perfect (and with a name like Amour (love), very fitting for a romantic evening!)... More

Given the excellent reviews, I expected a lot more from this restaurant. We arrived at the time of our reservation and had to wait about 10 minutes for our table to be ready. The maître d was self-important and not in any hurry, despite tables being ready. The decor is uninspiring and includes some pretty tacky internal lattice. The service... More

While celebrating our 30th anniversary in Quebec city. We chose Le Saint-Amour as our special night out. What can I say. The meal and service was to perfection. The last time I tasted fine french culinary food like this was at Maison Boulud, at the Ritz Carton Montreal. This special memory will stay with us forever thanks to the beautiful... More

best meal yet in Quebec, and one of the best anywhere. Foie gras stopped me (and the other person at my table who ordered it) in my tracks- one of the best tasting foods I've ever eaten. Unbelievably delectable. Sublime. The venison wasn't great, but the bison, filet mignon, and crab & scallop were fantastic.

After reading the reviews, I made reservations weeks in advance. Yes, it's a pretty restaurant. But the food was good, not great. The staff was polite, not warm or friendly. Service started strong but we had to wait 20 minutes for coffee after we ordered it and then another 20 minutes for our check after our places were cleared. It... More

This restaurant is definitely not cheap, but if you really want to treat yourself this is the place to go. I called in advance to make reservations in advance and was delighted that the restaurant is very tourist friendly and has a casual dress code, runners and jeans are acceptable. The food was truly sublime, there were also fine dining... More

We were seated in the beautiful atrium at the rear of the restaurant where it is filled with light and nice ambiance. We were excited to visit as we had read many reviews. We began our meal with the deliciously rich foie gras and the rillette with green lentils. The lentils were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Our main course included... More

I really don't know what I can add here that hasn't already been said about this amazing restaurant! It was an excellent experience from start to finish. The service, the ambiance, and of course, the outstanding food, made this experience a night that my husband, friends and I will long remember!
