Our family of five dined on hot stone plates and experienced a variety of meats. The hostess was very helpful with suggestions and the experience of cooking meat to your preferred taste was excellent. The presentation which included a mix of vegetables was also great. A fun experience for the whole family.

If you are looking for an enjoyable dinner with a homely feel, this is the place in Tremblant. Offering an option to cook your own meal, C'est la Vie is certainly a unique little place. We enjoyed the service and the atmosphere which is both comfortable and romantic. The salmon accompanied by pesto sauce was delicious and the potatoes memorable.... More

This was our first hot stone dining experience and we truly enjoyed it! We were welcomed and asked if we wanted to sit inside or on the porch. It was a chilly evening for August so the greeter assured us that a heater was on and escorted to a lovely table on the porch. As we were new to the... More

Service was not bad but there were a few mix-ups. The hostess was very friendly but did seem overwhelmed. The food was delicious but there should be full size plates to put the food on as it is cooked on the hot stone.

This place has everything that is needed for a perfect restaurant, except the service. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was lovely but the service needs work. We walked at 7:25pm for a 7:30pm reservation and we weren't greeted until 7:35pm. We sat on our table and nobody came to take an order until 7:55pm. Finally we finished our... More

I think because we had such amazing service and equally great meal the night before that we just expected the same from this restaurant. The service was disappointing from the moment we walked in,not really friendly at all. As far as the meal goes and yes we did do the hot stones and yes we did know that the cooking... More

We were among three couples dining together at C'est la Vie. Overall, a lovely, unrushed dinner with great food. The service was good (though a missed appetizer due to some confusion, and when I pointed out that I'd asked for no bacon on my asparagus, the asparagus was removed and not replaced). My companions each had the hot stone dinner,... More

We have now been to this restaurant three times, and each visit was very special in it's own way. My wife loves deer, caribou, etc., and this place definitely delivers (have a close look at the mix/match part of the menu). Also plenty of room, btw, for the "beef" mainstream guy like me. Order the "hot stone" plate. Don't touch... More
