This is a must try place
We went for lunch for our anniversary. We had the place to ourselves. We had amazing service and the food was outstanding in flavour and quantity.
Expensive but an amazing experience
Our family had a lovely New Years Eve dinner at Q Haute. The food was exciting, interesting, tasty, well prepared....obviously a very talented chef in the kitchen. The staff was friendly, attentive and helpful. A lovely place to experience fun gastronomy! We look forward to dining there again!
Lovely place for NYE. Great food, live band and amazing service.
We went there as a family. We had never been at Q for dinner so the tasting menu was a bit of a surprise (although it was mentioned when they confirmed the reservation). We thought there may also be a la carte options, but there weren’t. That being said, the food was very good and original. The 7 course menu was too much food, but included a lot of variety (fish, poultry, lamb, etc.)
We liked the little tour of the restaurant and kitchen in the middle of the meal. It was nice to stretch our legs and see a restaurant kitchen. Service was very attentive and the food was delicious. Definitely a special occasion place. We’ll likely go back on a night they have the 5 course tasting menu (weeknights).
When I made last night's reservation to celebrate our 27th anniversary, I did not read about the set menu, so it was a scary surprise to find out about the 7 courses! I knew the courses would be small, but I usually do not eat a lot, so thank you for thinking about accommodating my needs, in the first place. No worries, both my husband and I had the 7 courses and, eating just half of everything, I managed to try all the good stuff. My favorite was, of course, the "Big Mitch and His Expensive Surprise", accompanied by a very nice Jurançon.
Having a tour of the kitchen (the appliances are amazing!) and explanations about the building's life and renovations was a plus, which made the night even more special. Congratulations and a bit thank you to all the wonderful staff and specially to Josh, who even gave me a bit of Sumatran coffee beans to try at home!
I regret that we celebrated our 6th anniversary here.
-Lamb that was tough and under-seasoned
-Molecular gastronomy that has made the jump from unexpected to inedible (The panna cotta was congealed and chewy)
-Wine pairings designed to save money
There were a few bites throughout the night that were good. The ahi tuna phyllo Cup; divine! The chicken and squash ravioli; mesmerizing!
I will say that the front of house and overall customer service levels were good. The sommelier could tell we were not enjoying our meal and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and valued.
This really comes down to food. If you sit down for a 7 course tasting menu, and pay the corresponding price, you expect a certain level of quality. You will not find that here.
Frustrated, describes both how I feel, and the execution of the menu.
I would not recommend your restaurant for anything, to anyone. Here is my review that I left on Trip Advisor website:
Three hours of wasted time and money. A seven-course dinner consisted of a tiny appetizer, a pasta dish (one piece of chicken ravioli - yes, JUST ONE PIECE), a small piece of tasteless, overcooked beef, and a few more equally revolting items. Total bill: $480 (including tips) for the three of us. And we did not order any booze.
The portions were not tiny - microscopic. It looked more like a silly joke.
For those who go there, seeking a new experience: have a dinner before dining at Haute Cuisine. Oh yes, they will give a tour of their kitchen. Instead of food.
Folks, this is a blatant scam. I've never been more insulted by what they passed to me as "dinner". All three of us felt like idiots.
