Description: La Crémaillère fête ses 40 ans. Depuis 1971 le restaurant la Crémaillère a toujours été au centre de la gastronomie de Québec et un repas à La Crémaillère demeure un classique incontournable lors d’un passage dans la Vieille Capitale. Aujourd’hui la cuisine est confiée à Jacques Le Pluart. Figure importante de l’histoire gastronomique de Québec son style raffiné et authentique saura vous combler. Beppino Boezio le propriétaire n’as rien perdu de sa passion. Personnage haut en couleur et très connu a Québec, il vous accueillera avec classe et simplicité. Beppino a vu passer bien des personnalités. Il importe ses vins directement des producteurs et avec son associé Michel Antoine ils ont concocté une offre de vin unique et remarquable. Les expositions de peintres et les choix musicaux font qu’un moment à la Crémaillère sera une expérience culinaire et artistique qui enchantera vos cinq sens.

“Unexpected Dining Pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

We arrived in Quebec after a long, rainy drive from Montreal and were looking for a good meal and wine near our hotel. The concierge recommended la Cremaillere and we set out to go there. Although we did not have a reservation, the maitre d' seated us immediately, while the restaurant was still full at 9 PM, patronized by locals. The cuisine is classical French. My wife had mussels in cream sauce, the likes of which was simply heavenly. I had the loin of rabbit which was the absolute best ever. The wine list is priced reasonably. The service was professional and efficient.

“Good but could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Was there last week and the five of us spent a bundle and got an excellent dining experience. Very lovely room and atmosphere and the food is also very good. However, for the high cost, it could be even better. Wine was excellent and service tops. Go if you have a special occasion and a bit of extra cash to burn.

This was a very pleasant experience and the food was very good. Service was excellent and it was fun to watch the preparation at the various tables. It was a bit expensive but very enjoyable.

“Fantastic Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We had high hopes for the food but we were not impressed. It was a bit costly and they had a nice wine selection ($85) but the food was just average. The decor was beautiiful and the service was fantastic...with so many amazing restaurants in Quebec I don't believe we will be returning to this one again. Dinner for three was mid $300's, including tip.
