We went to the Intimiste restaurant yesterday for dinner and had such a great time there. Inside, there were not too many tables and there was a lot of space between them, so cozy and quiet. The welcome was warm and smiling. On the menu, there was a great choice of appetizers, mains and desserts. My husband and I chose... More

We had two meals. The first was with two wines, escargot and scallops and shrimp. I will try to duplicate the sauce of coconut milk, curry and pastis. The second was a more standard filet with vegetables and the scallops wrapped in bacon for the starter. I will return.

We needed an early dinner - 6:30p - and were able to be seated without a reservation with very little wait. Staff were very attentive. Good choices of wine and seafood was exceptional. Location is nice to take an after dinner walk with some great views down the side streets.

While the wait for food to be delivered was longer than desired, the food quality and quantity was very good. The salmons was done to perfection but the shrimp and scallop fettuccini was taste but quite salty. The restaurant has tasteful decor and friendly staff.

My wife and I just finished a very nice meal at L'Intimiste. Several other restaurants in the town were closed on Tuesday (including several that said on their doors and website that they were open) and so we went to L'Intimiste. Several of the reviewers have noted the price at the restaurant. While everything is á la carte, the prices... More

The food was delicious and inventive as was the wine! People watching on the patio was fun too! Directly across the street is a famous chocolate place serving ice cream, in his historic neighbourhood!

We ate at this downtown Levis restaurant last night amid the festive atmosphere of the Jazz etc festival. We had reserved and were quickly seated though there was a lineup outside. We had eaten here before and were looking forward to a repeat of the very nice meal we had had the last time. And, that is exactly what we... More

My husband and I booked a reservation for this restaurant. It was a Tuesday, in July, and this place was busy. The items on the menu all looked delicious and it was so hard to decide. For starters, my husband had scallops with prosciutto and I had fried calamari. Both were fabulous. That was the best calamari I've had in... More
