Had a business dinner at this restaurant. I was very disappointed in the variety on the menu and wine list. I ended up having steak frites and they were both average quality. Creme Brûlée for dessert was very disappointing. The prices and the atmosphere were very good and the service was very good, just wish the food was better.

I have eaten at a sister restaurant in Paris and can confirm that the quality and food meet the standard. Excellent steak and yummy fries. Oh did I mention the not to be missed Profiterolles? Go hungry and enjoy.

We asked a local person on the street for a recommendation and he pointed us towards this place. It was quite full on a Sunday evening. The steak (house specialty) was done exactly the way we like it and came with good fries. Duck was also very good. Terrine appetizer was worse than the main dishes, but still overall it... More

If you're looking for steak frites than this is a great option for a low price. However, the menu is extremely limited and they don't have much else to offer. Soup, salad, service, ambience and dessert were all average. Good value but certainly a one trick pony.

Terrific restaurant in Old Quebec in the middle of the hustle and bustle of St Jean street. The steak with it's unique sauce is superb! Wish the fries were fresh cut but otherwise perfect. Busy restaurant but well priced meal at $25 for a good sized portion.

We always go here when we visit Quebec city. The sauce is like a buttery mustard yellow gravy and is perfect with the steak and frites. We always ask for more !! my wife and kids love it and have been eating here when we visit since they were 5 or 6, and now they are in their late teens... More

We stopped in for dinner after going all over Saint-Jean street. It was a good choice. The steak and sauce are good. The place is quite busy.

The restaurant came highly recommended by the hotel concierge. entrecote is a premium cut of beef for steak. But coming from Texas, the land of steaks, the entrecote here was average. The steak and fries were kind of bland. But the smoke salmon for appetizer and the caramelized pear were good. Service was great. Be sure to make a reservation... More

I should preface this review by saying that we ate there on a busy Saturday night, which I'm sure is a factor. L'Entrecote Saint-Jean is known for the steak frites. And that is what you should order, because it's what they do and it is indeed excellent. I would say that mine was slightly overcooked, but not badly so. The... More

I have visited this restaurant before without being impressed but this time I had a much better experience. I had soup ($3.50)and terrine de jour ($9.95) - both appetizers as I wanted a light meal and both were good, in fact the terrine was excellent. A good lunch for under $16 including tax is not easy to find in Quebec... More
