We enjoyed the steak, cooked exactly as ordered, with their "special sauce". Nice ambiance inside and not too loud. Servers were very polite. Wine prices by the bottle somewhat high. We would return.

L'Entrecôte Saint-Jean was a port in a storm. We had eaten at many restaurants in Quebec and were disappointed. On out last night we tried this gem. We did not know that reservations are taken but the staff put my copilot and I at the bar. The bartender was absolutely great. He was not only informative about the menu but... More

We had a large group reserved for dinner here. We ended up being approximately 60 people and we had a great experience from the beginning. The manager (Eric) worked with us to plan everything out. We were given the room downstairs and we arrived to find everything set up and waiting for us. There was a good amount of space... More

While meeting my sister and her kids, we decided to stop here for a little snack. We weren't really that hungry, we just needed a place to talk and be out of the sun for a bit. We ordered whatever was on the rather small menu but really happy to see that hey offered GF on much everything they had.... More

The best entrecot that I have had and I have to say that I travel often to Buenos Aires. I was alone but the service was really good.

Definitely come for the entrecote which is more of a thicker steak than you normally get with steaks frites. Others in reviews said they didn't get the sauce on it, the sauce IS the whole point and the main/only flavor and is delicious. Members of my party were soaking it up with bread after eating their steaks and all of... More

We tried this place after checking Tripadvisor on some recommendations on where to have a good meal in Old Quebec since this was our first time here. We had the steak and fries as recommended and it did not disappoint. The staff were also very attentive and we will definitely come back again.

Very good service and the food was delightful. We had the Tabal Dhot - Entrecote which included the soup, salad, entrecote, coffee, and desert. The sauce was excellent and some of the best fries I've ever had.

We were in Quebec for 24h with friends and felt like eating meat. Asked at our hotel (Acadia) where to go - they recommended L'entrecote Saint-Jean. We all went for the entrecote with fries, but asked for the sauce a part (not sure if we would be on our knees for it). Actually we enjoyed the steak with a little... More
