Description: Comme un repas se doit d'etre une experience inoubliable a tous les points de vue, les deux proprietaires du Saint-Amour M. Jacques Fortier et le Chef Jean-Luc Boulay ont deploye depuis 1978 leurs energies afin de reunir une equipe passionnee et attentionnee, de la cuisine a la salle a manger. Le Saint Amour se veut figure de proue dans le rayonnement de la gastronomie quebecoise. Alliant tradition et innovation, Jean-Luc Boulay et son chef Patrick Dubé misent sur les plus récentes techniques pour rendre hommage aux fins produits de notre Terroir. Au fil des ans, notre table est devenue un endroit raffine et chaleureux ou le qualificatif de distinctive ne s'arrete pas a la cuisine, mais s'etend jusqu'a l'ambiance et au confort des lieux.

“Real Franch food!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Costly but worthy! If you have the budget for an AMAZING night out in the heart of the old Québec and crave REAL French food; the Saint-Amour is a must. True French traditions, great service and crazy tasty French food! The wine cellar is the most spectacular of Quebec City. over 12,000 bottles and a wine expert always in the place. Ambiance and Valet parking included too.

“Must be experienced”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at le Saint Amour in early November. We only had one night in Quebec City and the dining experience combined with the walk from our hotel on the old city streets really was magical. The staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. The food was as good as we have experienced at some of the best restaurants in the world. We would highly recommend that this unique restaurant be at the top of your list if you are in Quebec.

“One of our favorites from the trip”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Fantastatic meal, great wine list, great service. Not too far out on the foodie side of fare. My wife and I had dinner here our first night in Quebec City on a 6 day vacation. One week, later, I can't remember all the details. I had lamb, a cool desert but I forget what as well as the apetizer. Great wine that is hard to find in the States. Wine list is extensive and well arranged by label. So, Bordeaux by sub-appelation, the Bourgon Rouge, Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune, then the villages. So order dinner, decide the type of wine and then pick one from the wine list. For wine newbies, ask for help from the sommelier. Unlike many other restaurants in Quebec City and also Montreal, this resturant had a decent selection of wines for outside France, so a nice selectionof Piedmonts from Italy, as well as the US West Coast and Argentina. Great service, great decor, tied with another Quebec City restaurant as best meal of the trip. More down to earth, better wine list and on par or better food at the same price as L'espalier in Boston. Cost was around $250 USD a head

“Best restaurant in Quebec City!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

My daughter and I ate here last night. We had an outstanding meal the night before and thought we might be disappointed.
We were not. The service was impeccable. The Maitre D' explained the menu options in detail, and made some very positive suggestions when we asked about particular items. She ordered the snow crab appetizer followed by a filet mignon, with the eclair for dessert.
I ordered the lobster bisque, followed by the scallop appetizer and the venison as a main course.
All were outstanding. Both of us agreed that this was among the best meals if not the best we have had.
I have had the privilege of dining in some restaurants around the world and would highly recommend this one.
I will be back!
