Came from Old Quebec to dine at a train station. Sounds scary. Had exceptional service. Ordered full rack of ribs and Manhattan steak. A pickle, basket of bread, and side of coleslaw came to our table before we ordered. Steak was perfectly prepared to medium. Ribs had a cinnamon rub that was tasty. Good side salad and loaded baked potato... More

My husband and I booked an early dinner at Charbon. Atmosphere very nice and inviting. My husband ordered the veal chop with mushrooms that he loved. I ordered the filet, baked potato and mixed vegetables and a wedge salad. My steak was cooked to temperature, medium rare, but the potato came out luke warm and the vegetables over cooked. Drinks...

Great selection of steaks, and the staff are well able to explain the menu. However, it is expensive. But it's fun to splurge once in a while. One important tip - the restaurant will validate upto 2.5 hours of parking in the under-ground carpark right beside. This is good, as the open-air carpark immediately in front of the restaurant is...

This restaurant was recommended to us and unfortunately it was not up to par. Customer service is not a priority. As we arrived during a small rush, the hostesses were very disorganized and did not know how to deal with the arrivals. Finally after waiting 15 minutes for our table, we were served water and menus. My glass was filled... More

First contact the tally walkie girls: we had a booking but it still took a long time to get a table. Reason: they were arbitraging walk-in customers. Then they talked in the microphone with no reply, finally a waitress who was cleaning a table indicated a ready table. It took at least 5 minutes more for the walkie talkie girls... More

Nice looking steak restaurant located in the railway station. This restaurant has a big outside area to eat in with live music when we went, which gave it a good atmosphere. The steaks are nice and on show for you to view the different cuts. We had a small child and they tried to sit us upstairs which felt like... More

This place is highly recommended for steak lovers. I love their New York Steak!!! This is an upscale steakhouse that offers great steaks. The relaxed ambience of the restaurant offers you a very relaxing eating experience. Staffs were very polite and helpful. Surely, a must for steak lovers.
