All in all, we had an enjoyable meal here seated at the bar (no reservation on a busy night) watching the young bartender and staff do their thing. It was bustling but efficient. Staff was friendly, and the food was good if not memorable. Seemed to be quite popular with locals even though it was in the thick of the touristy Lower Town scene. Probably better than many spots in the area, but the smaller, more intimate and more reasonably priced Bistro Cafe du Cap just a few doors down is more likely to get our return business.

After two extremely expensive not-so-good dinners at the top of the hill in Quebec, we went to the lower city on the recommendation of the concierge at the Fontenac and had a totally delightful evening. The food was fabulous, the service perfect. They even gracefully removed us to a table farther from the spoiled children at the table next to our original placement. Definitely worth the walk down the hill! Thank you for a lovely evening.

And PS - if you have badly behaved children, please DO NOT feel free to impose them on other diners at nice restaurants. Train them or keep them at home, please.

Super food, service and ambience. Highly recommend Vincent as our server. If you are art shopping or just in for a quick lunch or dinner- the place to be!

Great services, great food, great ambiance (we sat on the terrace). We also didn't get to the restaurant until 9pm and found out there is a 21% discount on the bistro menu after 9pm. Our waiter was great as well. I recommend this place if you'd like a nice night out but don't want the fancy (and more expensive) night as you'd have at Panache or Saint-Amour for example.

We loved this restaurant so much, we ate there a few times! The first time we tried to go for lunch but the waiter told us it was closed and suggested we come back another day. We did just that and funny enough he remembered us and gave us such amazing service! Wilsons' friendly personality made us want to go back for lunch and another night for drinks so if you're visiting this restaurant, look for Wilson, so professional and very helpful when it came to ordering wine. We go out to dinner all the time and the service can make or break a night...A+ all around!
