We were so excited to go to this restaurant after my husband and daughter reported a wonderful lunch there over 4 years ago. The setting is quite nice, we were in the intimate upstairs, right next to a lovely lit fireplace. Things got off to a rocky start with the wine. Surprisingly, there is not a wine steward on staff.... More

Let's start with the food. It was amazing. One of the top 10 meals I have ever eaten. Three menus, each with three courses, a soup and each course with three different preparations of the same food(s). Every bite was a work of art. Every bite worked perfectly with every other bite. Overall just an amazing composition. Every good word... More

Food was ok except 2 dishes out of 8 or 9. There was cold draft from nearby window, spoiling all fine dining experience. Service rendered by several waiters not communicating well between each other, i.e. they asked us what was the last meal served - pretty bizarre for a restaurant charging $500+ for two. We also noticed we were serviced... More

The beginning of the experience was a bit lacking, but overall we've enjoyed spending our Christmas Eve there. We've made the reservation by visiting the restaurant's website and using their online reservation option. The reservation was secured with a credit card and was shortly confirmed by email. Upon arrival, we were told that they were full and that they've accepted... More

We spent 3 hours at Patriarche during our recent trip to Quebec City It was one of the finest meals we have ever had on the four continents we've travelled. Service was outstanding and attentive. The food was imaginative, playful, and provocative. And the platings were stunning. This is dinner and a show. If you do not condone the practice... More

I didn't know what a "5 diamonds restaurant" meant before going to Le Patriarche and now I can't wait to go back there (or trying one of the few others in Canada). It's a small and intimate place, located in one of the many historical and charming buildings in the "Old Quebec". The food was great, the presentation was flawless,... More

Just the best restaurant in town, I ordered the trilogies of foiegras with 6 services and wine. I recommend!

This is a small intimate place with nice service. The food is beautifully presented and described well. I know the chef worked hard in creating these "masterpieces". The items are presented in "trios" with interesting flavors although some didn't complement others. The amounts of food are quite small and sometimes we couldn't figure out what exactly they were. We chose... More

My wife and I have eaten at Le Patriarche a few times over the years, most recently last week (October, 2015) when I was in Quebec City on business. While the menu changes, the formula does not: everything is served in trios, from the appetizers through the soup, meat, and fish courses right through to dessert. Each dish is actually... More

Our group of five arrived at the restaurant at the time of our reservations, which had been confirmed by the concierge at the Chateau Frontenac. Ww were greeted warmly but it was clear something was amiss. Although our reservations had been " cancelled" the staff very quickly had us seated. As an extra advantage, we were seated in the basement,... More
