We always enjoy the food at Aux Chantignoles. However, there were no oysters on the buffet this Christmas.

We came in with high expectations. But after 15 mins of being ignored we finally got a drink ordered. As the starter came it was not as expected. The goats cheese which my girlfriend ordered was presented as a kind of cheese cake and tasted very strange. I had the foie gras. A dark red wine sauce was overpowering. For... More

The restaurant gains a lot for being located inside the beautiful Fairmont Montebello lodge. We elected to choose the three course menu. The variety of choices for both the appetizers and the main course guaranties that you will find something that will appeal to you. The dishes are rather classical, not particularly inventive, but the food is very good, the... More

The food is consistently great, with creative menus and impeccable service. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly without being familiar, and they think of everything (for example, one time when we had lunch after having pedicures at the spa, our waiter noticed our spa flip-flops were falling apart and got us new ones).

Hubby and I ate there tonight. The reservation and greeting part was all good. When we were brought to our tables, the hostess didn't pull out or push in our chairs, didn't place our napkins, didn't take coats. I saw people hanging their coats on the back of the chairs! I thought this was supposed to be a fancy Fairmont... More

Had the breakfast and lunch buffets there. Didn't have dinner. Breakfast buffet is $27pp, a little much for eggs and cereals. But the food was good.

I approached the meal cautiously, given some uneven reviews and the fear that the restaurant might be living off its location rather than the quality of its food and service. There were also some challenges in having three diners with very different diet limitations -- and speaking three different languages. The meal and evening was excellent, however, in tribute to...

This was our 5th or 6th visit to Montebello in some 25+ odd years. We like the place. This time, though we found dinner very disappointing. The amuse bouche of smoke salmon and goat cheese was bland and boring. The beef tartare was painfully harsh and very unpleasant, the venison was tender but sadly lacked taste in what was a... More
