In the middle of the old part of the City of St-Jean sur Richelieu we came in for lunch without a reservation and were given a good table beside a window and welcomed. The restaurant has charm, old stone walls and the decor is tasteful. The service was warm all throughout and the woman knew her stuff. The food was... More

Been here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the service is second to none. If you are looking for good food and value for your dollar this is the place. Nice terrace in the summer lots of plenty of parking on the street.

First time at this restaurant, we went based on Trip Advisor reviews. It is a bit out of the way in St. Jean but not hard to get to. They have indoor and outdoor seating with no real view but pleasant on a nice summer evening. The service was good and friendly. The food choices run the gamut of French... More

My wife and I were staying in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu on our trip to Montreal and were looking for a good French restaurant in the area for dinner. L'Imprevu came highly recommended and we both agree the experience was better than we could have imagined. From the moment we walked in we felt comfortable. The staff went out of their way to...

I had no idea there was such a great restaurant in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Everything I had was amazing! The "feuilleté de roquefort" was simply to die for. The filet mignon was cooked exactly as I had ordered it and the vegetables on the side were cooked to perfection. And the desert ? Absolutely exquisite. Great value. Great service. This meal was...

I have been eating here for the last year when ever I was in town for business. The food is consistently original and flavorful. The staff are lovely and helpful. Their week day price fixed menu has fantastic choices at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

The server mentioned to us that the L'Imprevu has been open under the same owner/chef for over 25 years. The fine quality of the food, presentation, service and decor after more than two decades is truly a marvel. The Table d'hote was great value for price given the quality of the ingredients.
