My family and I enjoyed our dinner here. The appetizers were both visually appealing and delicious. The dinner portions were generous - not what we expected for a french restaurant. The prime rib and lamb shank were cooked consistently despite their large size. Children's menu was however typical and we would not be ordering from that next time.

We were staying across the road in the Quality Inn which didn't have a restaurant so we're delighted when we found this gem. The waiting staff were very good and engaged in conversation easily. The food was very excellent, being very well cooked and presented. We had the Steak and Frites and the Salad Nicoise with the tuna being cooked... More

We stayed for one night at the Hotel Levesque en route from Gaspesie to Montreal. We had read some good reviews of La Griffe so we thought we would eat there instead of going into town. The menu, in French and English, looked interesting. The restaurant staff didn't speak English, but I can remember enough schoolboy French to order a... More

As a family of 3 passing through and staying at the Best Western we were thrilled the staff could accommodate us for dinner on a busy night. The dining room is elegantly styled with soft lighting and great overall ambiance. The servers are friendly and attentive , working as a team so there is no waiting for "your server" to... More

Staying at the hotel, I was glad to know there was a restaurant in the premisces. I went there the first night, the young lady at the bar didn't acknowledge my presence for about 10 min, then came back to me after about another 10 minutes. I saw how promptly she greeted some other customers, and that about 3 or... More

We had a lovely breakfast at La Griffe. We went late in the morning and there was no one in the restaurant it was really nice as it was our engagement getaway. We had a lovely view over the river and the food was delicious. Huge portion I would definitely come back.

The service was not very good. Not sure if it was because we were speaking English, or just the luck of the draw... but we felt they were very rude. The two folks behind the bar were having a conversation that was way too important than greeting us and/or telling us if we could seat ourselves... we took it upon... More

My wife and I have been on a 16 day long road trip to PEI and Nova Scotia. We have dined on many fantastic seafood and other meals during our trip. Who could imagine that the best meal of our trip would be simple bar food in the LE 171 lounge at the Best Western in Riviere du Loup?? I... More
