timely, friendly service, nice atmosphere. the food was average at best and very disappointing as to the entrecôte, which is supposedly their specialty. My husband asked for the steak medium rare and got it medium well. nonetheless, it had little taste, am pretty sure it had been frozen and was not seasoned well. i asked how is the Croque Monsieur?...

We enjoyed a nice evening with friends, the service was very friendly / good. The "Table d'Hote" was reasonably priced; but when your specialty is steak, it should have been better. They say "the secret is in the sauce", it was not in mine. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad; I just expected a little more. With all the... More

I had heard that this was an institution with exceptional food. All four of us were disappointed. The service was fine but the main courses, steak and fries, were average.

Very friendly service even though we walked in near closing time, but that was about it. The terrine platter was very dry. The steak was really nothing special. Get better steak at a Longhorn or Outback. The fries were little short pieces of potatoes (maybe the leftovers for the day). The salmon with mustard sauce (the special for the day)... More

Nice ambience on Rue St. Jean, good service and a decent steak-frites. Was dining alone on a business trip, my sense is that it would be fine for a good night out anytime, but with good weather it was very nice sitting outside.

Oh, it was fun and great people-watching. But, best steak?? I don't know. We were seated next to a couple from Oklahoma and we are from Texas, so we might debate "best steak"....however, it was a fun evening!

What a let down, we are fans of "L'entrecot" theme, lettuce and walnut starters, French fries and entrecot steak. As we wee a bit dubious as to whether the sauce was like the French version, butter, garlic and parsley, we asked for it to be "on the side" Oh dear, it came drenched in a sauce which strongly smelled of...

Wow! Busy is not the word! Huge restaurant with sidewalk patio in the evenings. An on-going line-up of 15-20 people waiting to get in. Reminiscent of Parisian bistros that serve steak-frites. And, the specialty here is a good value table d'hote built around steak-frites. My wife and I both had this table d'hote. It started with a nice small portion... More

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
