Had lunch here while staying at the hotel. Great views of the Terrasse Dufferrin and the St. Lawrence. Competent service. Oysters were fresh tasty and well shucked. The BASQUE TERROIR BY PIERRE OTEIZA was pretty and delicious!

We had a wonderful view of the St. Lawrence River. We ordered duck wings and poutine. Our waitress, Annie was very efficient and engaging. The bistro has a menu with a variety of options. We will visit again.

You'll love the alcoves, or the view. If you like to see and be seen, then the bistro (middle) and bar, is the place to be seated. Food is nicely presented, lots to choose from, bistronomy feel in every plate. Efficient service

We had a wonderful meal, seated by the window overlooking the river. Great food and very attentive service. One of the best caesar salad we've ever had. Rack of lamb was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Received a complimentary dessert for my birthday, very appreciated.

We had our New Year's Eve dinner at Le Sam! Annie was so lovely and really enhanced our dining experience! We, unfortunately, we were not seated by the window, but when I would pause from my meal and turn around, the view was spectacular! Our...More
