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.

Are here for dinner. The food was excellent. The service was slow. Some of the servers ignored me completely. Perhaps they only help people who speak French!? When the waiter did arrive he was good and did apologise for the wait. The food was excellent however.

Our meal was excellent in every way! The prime rib was cooked to order, the service was impeccable and the atmosphere very elegant. The restaurant to our surprise was located in the train station in Quebec City. Very enjoyable aniversary dinner! Try it!

this place has to be the top of your list for a great steak. My husband and I are not large red meat eaters and yet they cooked our steaks to perfection! I am a very picky person when it comes to my red meats and it was amazing. They also gave us free appetizers as we were there between... More

The breakfasts were wonderful-all 4 of us agreed. We would do that again. Dinner left a lot to be desired. Restaurant was noisy and service was slow.

For the overall experience, the restaurant is very nice with a typical "steakhouse" decor. For some reason there is no bathroom in the restaurant and they are on the second floor, very far away, not very practical... For the food, first off, the steak is really really good. I had the scallops as appetizer, it was good but I thought... More

Food was good, price was ok. Service was ok... It's not out of this world but the meat was good. We had salmon tartare as a starter that was good and a goat cheese portobello that was very simple but delicious. and steaks were tasty.

My wife and I dined at this restaurant on a week night. We were pleasantly impressed with the quality of the food. We both had steak as s main course and they were cooked to perfection. The flavour of the charcoal grill truly added flavour and it was appreciated considering it was -25c ! The food is a little on... More
