“Highlight of our trip to Quebec City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

The food here was magnificent. Well presented and very and tasty. The chef at this restaurant is famous for his TV show. We had not heard about this place until a fellow guest at a B and B near Montreal mentioned it to us. Food is not inexpensive but we went for the lunch meal and even though pricey i was worth every penny. A must visit when in Quebec City.

“Good food.... Waiter not attentive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Let me say this review is based on my having eaten in incredible restaurants throughout Europe and US. The winter garden room was romantic and beautiful. The food was good but the waiter was not attentive as he was busy with a large party. I was not asked if I wanted coffee or tea or if I wanted the cheese or desert course. I took the initiative and told the waiter. The waiter brought my partner's cheese course and brought it in the center of the table in order for us to share. He had forgotten mine. I had asked the waiter to check on a course as it had been over 30 mins. He said it was coming and they were preparing it. I told him it was soup. One entre was served not piping hot but the all the accompaniment of the plate was piping hot. I had no issue spending close to $400 dollars( includes wine and tip) but not with mediocre service.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had the tasting menu here and paid extra for the seared fois grais. Oh my - worth every penny. The food was excellent and the service sublime. A must do - make sure you sit in the garden room.

“Good food, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Best French meal I ever had so far. The food was delicious and well displayed. Servers were courteous and very informative. The restaurant has warm atmosphere. I would say it is one of the best french restaurants out there in Quebec city. Would recommend for anyone who wants to try French cuisine in this city.

“Paul McCartney's Personal Chef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

My wife and I travelled with another couple to Quebec City for the July 23, 2013 Paul McCartney concert.
We read in the local paper that Chef Boulay (co-owner of the restaurant) is Paul's personal chef every time that he visits or performs there.
We felt that "if it is good enough for Paul McCartney, it's good enough for us!" so we dined there on our first evening (July 22nd).
We were not disappointed and Chef Boulay even took the time from his kitchen to visit our table, say hello and welcome us to his incredible Le Saint-Amour and Quebec City!
It was a fantastic experience and we have made a personal vow to dine there again on already planned future visits!
