What an experience! First let me tell you about the service, because quiet honestly, I've had some terrible service in the last 10 days that we were in Quebec City, so to have this kind of service was a welcome change! Very attentive, welcoming and not at all over bearing, answered all of our questions with ease...
First, don't go there expecting to pay less than $100 per person, we were three at our table, one was 120$ and the other two hit 200$ Per person... I was one of them, and it was completely worth it!
I ordered the lamb tasting menu with the fois gras substitution, and the matching wine pairing! And I started with a glass of champagne, just because!
So we started with an amuse bouche of pigeon pate on a crouton, first time having pigeon and I would have licked my plate!! Then we had a piece of gibblet with a consommé and gelee of peppers I think... Then it was the trio of fois gras!! I it was absolutely spectacular!! A seared piece with black truffle, a pate, a roulade stuffed with lobster, then a lobster salad!!! Exceptional!!
The lamb trio had a lamb loin, a lamb ravioli, then a lamb sausage, all very good. Then we served a palette cleanser of pineapple shorbet.
And desert was either the death of chocolate trio or a trio of honey... I am actually surprised that I picked the honey but it sounded so good, and I was feeling adventurous. I am so glad I did, I am always a big fab of chocolate but this plate was exceptional!!,
All in all, one of my best meals ever! If you want a special night out, check this out, and don't forget to go downstairs to the wine cellar.
Also, the wine pairing was well worth it and excepptionally well done!,
