Not bad

We are HUGE fans of the relais de l'entrecote in Paris. This was an okay substitute. The meat was a bit tough, but the service and wine was good. There was only one option for a children's menu which does not make it very "family friendly".

Arrived @12:50. Had delicious soup of the day, (onion). 1 ordered chicken & feta salad. I ordered ham&cheese sandwich, served with fries and small salad. Food was good, but (no offense) probably wouldn't return. Restaurant was relatively empty, yet food arrived @1:24. My advise: if your going for lunch, allow a full hour.

Good food, good Quebecois wine(!), absolutely excellent service. I left the table momentarily and, when I returned, the waiter didn't hesitate to take my carrot soup away, claiming I had to get a hotter soup. Unbeatable.

I was excited to try this restaurant, both based on the reviews and wanting to try steak frites. It took awhile to get my first drink ordered and I felt like the steak frites were just ok.

I ate there with a friend of mine earlier this week and while I tend to stay away from steak houses, he suggested this place. What a great suggestion! We had a wonderful cream of carrot soup to start and each had the specialty of the house, Entrecote (strip loin) St-Jean. The steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare... More

I just ate here with my parents on their first night in Quebec. My mum and I had the table d'hôte which I had read was their speciality and my dad had confit de canard. I am a fussy steak eater in that I like it to be rare and tender or feel that it's not worth eating. This steak... More

We were vacationing with our daughter and 22 month old grandson and, based on earlier reviews, we decided to give L'Entrecote Saint-Jean a try. We could not have found a better place. From the moment we entered the Host was most gracious and welcoming, even helping our grandson off with his coat. The server was excellent and the food simply... More

Soup, Salad, steak and fries (and if you ask, green beans) and dessert for very reasonable price. The sauce with the steak is amazing. Everyone cleaned their plates. Family friendly and right in the Old city.

Host was very friendly and polite. Food was great. Bill comes and there is a hand written number of the food cost + 15% tax amount. We thought it might be because it was to help with how much tip to give but then we saw the same was not done for the table next to us. Server comes over... More

Many restaurants in Old Town Quebec got really crowded during dinner time (it may be the December/holiday season, but who knows), including L'Entrecote Saint-Jean. I like to think that crowded = a restaurant I must try! It did not disappoint. After what seemed like forever, we were seated. The prix fixe menu definitely seemed like a good deal, but I... More
