Our waiter (Matt) was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and very skilled!! Food was over the top great!!! We had home-made quiche, tourtiere, and beef bourguigon. ALL perfectly prepared and delicious! Had creme brulee for dessert....one the of the finest... More

We came on a Monday without a reservation but it was early. No problem getting a table in the train car. Curtis was our server, very courteous and observant through the meal. My husband had escargot done in a red wine "gravy" in a cast iron frying pan instead of the usual garlic butter. He has had them here before... More

Attended at Resto Gare for a birthday supper and was very pleased with the service and meal. The meal was prepared very well and the presentation was well done. The steak was prepared exactly as requested which at other restaurants is often a hit or miss proposition. The request for the sauce on the side was followed without question, it... More

Visited Resto Gare while visiting with family. We were unable to sit in the restored rail car which was disappointing for my kids. We mentioned this to our server and she was apathetic. We went up to look at it and a waiter very abruptly pushed passed us. We then were seated at a table at the back of the... More

Others had the chateau breaubriand... More

The restaurant's new owners make great food and it is always consistently good. They have a great variety of appetizers also. Thursday nights they have jazz on the patio and appetizers are my choice on those nights. My last visit in April, 2016, there were 5 people for dinner. We all loved our meals and I got raves for picking... More

We are so please that you enjoyed your evening with us. We did give the restaurant a make over in 2008, but must add that my wife's family has run the restaurant at that location since 1983. My wife has owned it since 2002. So new owners is a relative term. More

We had reservations in the train car but it was such a beautiful evening, we opted to sit outside on the patio. Good choice.....nice seating arrangement, no bugs and plenty of shade and flowers. Server, Curtis, was very friendly and took the time to chat. House wines were Chilean and good. Complimentary bread basket offered 3 varieties of bread and... More

Patio is perfect for an evening meal. Food was wonderful. Had the daily special of Asparagus Crepes with a crisp and delicious garden salad. Wine and cocktails were excellent and service was attentive by yet discreet. Went on a Thursday evening and enjoyed the live jazz on the patio. Will definitely return.

It's located in a old train station and a part of the restaurant is also in a train wagon. The food is excellent with a mix of French Canadian and French inspiration. I enjoy their lambs plate they served me: the look of the plate could be nicer, but it was tasteful! Dessert: you need to the order their sugar... More
