“Sauvignon now one of our favourite spots in Tremblant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

To be truthful, we read a lot of negative reviews about Sauvignon prior to trying it out in the summer of 2013. We found the food generally very good, but with inconsistent service. But we ate there several times over that summer and were mostly pleased and found the prices to be very reasonable. Dining there last night, however, took it to a new level of excellence. We started with the daily salad, a generous serving of mesclun spring greens and spicy arugula which we shared with an order of escargots...both scrumptious. Then we shared their daily fish, pistachio crusted cod, and the braised short rib. Both were prepared to perfection, the fish flaky, tasteful and moist. The beef like butter. The desserts (included in the Table d'hôte) were also excellent. And our female server was attentive and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant at all.

“Excellent food and Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Attended with friends. Restaurant not that busy. Stephan friendly, courteous, and prompt service. Quantities of food quite generous. Had cod, lamb all cooked and presented well. Ate outside on a warm great summer night.

“Came back again this year and wasn't disappointed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

We visited this restaurant last summer for the first time and had such a good experience that we decided to book again this year during our stay at Mont Tremblant. I'm so glad we did! We all (8 of us) ordered the $39 prix fixe menu. Some had the steak, some had the pasta and others had the Beef shoulder and we were all thrilled with our selections. The food was awesome, the value was very good and the ambiance was great. My only criticism was that the service was a little on the slow side. Our waiter was very pleasant but seemed somewhat distracted. But all in all I would definitely go back again!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

The food was great; I was amazingly surprised. They still have to work on the service, but they were friendly. My husband and myself enjoy our meal. I would return.

“Needs attention to detail”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We returned to this restaurant after hearing that it had changed ownership. There were some highlights, but, unfortunately, there were a lot of issues that could very easily have been addressed in order to make this a much better experience.
Firstly -- the tables are way, way too close together. It seems they have crammed several more tables in than were there under the previous management, and have rearranged the dining room to do so. This means that you are squashed next to the table beside you (which, in our case, was full of loud people who appeared to have had a few before dinner...rather annoying). Equally irritating is that the waiters had to literally squeeze in between the tables -- so unless you purposely stared straight ahead, you had the waiters butt inches from your face while he was dealing with the table next to you - and when he'd lean over the other table to pick up a plate - well, you can imagine the the unpleasantness.. Didn't appreciate that.
Other issue was the service -- friendly and well-meaning, but very disorganized. We ordered drinks, a 2nd waiter came and asked if we'd like drinks, we said we'd already ordered. And since they never arrived, we had to flag the waiter down and re-order. 15 minutes to get drinks. When we ordered our 2nd drinks, it happened again. Really?
The kitchen is partially open concept -- and we could see from across the way that our food was ready. And it sat, and sat, and sat under the heat lamps. Waiters came out, looked at it, walked away, not bringing it to us. Finally we asked the water/bread/busboy if we could have our food, as we were afraid it would dry out. He brought it over, and we realized that the filet mignon was supposed to have foie gras on it - which they'd forgotten. So we had to flag down a waiter to get that brought it over.
The good? Well, the salmon tartare appetizer was spectacular. The filet mignon (when it arrived) was very good as well. The duck was nice, although not great as it had some bits that were a little tough.
On the whole, the food was quite good, but getting to that point was such a production that it put us off the whole evening.
Would we return? I doubt it - it was just too disorganized, crowded, squashed together and altogether too much hassle.
