“Exceeded my Expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by the service and quality of food! You would think in a city that is tourist based and with such vast dining options that service would be a second thought... but not at L'atelier! From the moment we walked in, from the moment we walked out we felt appreciated and that they valued our business. And this is experience was during the Quebec Carnival.

The restaurant is very trendy and has a fantastic cocktail menu. The Ceasar was by far the best we have ever had at a restaurant. I really enjoyed the Tartare Trio and it was served with a lovely side salad... well worh the $30.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves cocktails,tartares and a "buzzing" atmosphere!

“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

OK we got lured in by the "Cocktails and Tartare" tag line. The atmosphere is great with a more modern feel with some old town components. Where we come from several restaurants have elevated cocktails to an art form. Here our cocktails were pretty average though the bartender was not shy about telling us how commited he is to mixology (might need a career change). We orderred the tartare trio and were not unhappy but over the next few days we had more comparisons and L'atelier did not stand out in terms of quality and value. In a city brimming with restaurants this one doesn't stand out enough to consider in future.

Great location, great place, awesome food and service! Amazing cocktails! A place to stop by. Even if you don't like tartare (like me) well the bison was fantastic!

“Super!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

I went there with my girlfriends and the food, the atmosphere and the service were really good! I don't remember the name of the waitress(curly brown hair) but she was so nice with us, she knew the exact drink to recommend for each of us! The tartares : to die for. Seriously.
