Wonderful service and ambiance. Some of the food was cold and did not find it very good value for money spent.

Very disappointed with the quality and selection of the buffet brunch, especially for the price! It felt like mass produced food, no personal touches (like an omlette or smoothies) Plus the buffet is not inclusive to different dietary restrictions (vegetarians and non pork eaters good luck!!)

The Sunday Brunch buffet was extremely diverse and had a huge selection of many different items. The service was great and the food was fantastic. We will be going back!

We had a fantastic waiter, lunch Friday Nov 29 th
We all had steak, we found it rather tough with no sides of vegetables for that price ?
We love the hotel , it’s wonderful and a very special place. After our lunch the three of us wanted to sit by the fire, but couples were occupying the love seats leaving no room for the three of us to sit. We then moved to the bar which is located by the main entrance. Two of us ordered alcoholic drinks, but I asked the bar tender for water, which he gave to me. When I asked him, to refill my glass with more water, he seemed reluctant but nevertheless filled my glass with water while at the same time he referred me to the water fountain not far away.
I was disappointed with his lack of service and attitude.

Way to expensive for the quality of the meals. My steak was burnt outside. It was supposed to come with potatoes, vegetables and sauces since I ordered the Table d'hôte but it came should the steak alone. Very disappointing! My boyfriend's fletan was a nice meal but he had better.

The food was fantastic, the server Benoit was charismatic and professional. I also ordered a birthday cake that was above expectations. This was our second time traveling from Ottawa to Montebello in 2019 for brunch, we'll be back in 2020 and try to bring more guests with us next time.

Service was terrible. It is not our first time, but it might be the last. When you pay that price you expect the food to be good, but the service has to be too.

We had a friend visiting from Australia so took her to Montebello for a full Canadian experience. She loved the surroundings and the culinary experience of her first taste of smoked meat and of poutine

The restaurant is nice, and welcoming, great menu, and the service was good. It’s a little dated, and the menu feels a little too traditional, nothing new or modern, the prices seem a little too high for a little above average food.

Off-season, end of October:
Menu dated and dishes mediocre. Trout fillet from frozen and dried out. Vegetables all somewhat over cooked (supposed to be roasted maybe?) Sugar pie was good.
Service was excellent. Waiter was personable, accommodating and efficient.
There were a few diners in a cavernous space on ground level overlooking a storage area or similar, dark, no music, no candlelight.
Price: approx $180 for 2 people with taxes and tip (included one glass of wine for one diner).

Disappointing experience overall. Had high hopes for a special occasion, looking for a nice ambiance but it felt cold, dated and service was inattentive. For the price, we were unimpressed with the variety quality of the dishes. Food was cold. Not the quality I have come to expect at a Fairmont.

Went on a Tuesday night and I can only hope that it was the chefs night off. Food and presentation was awful. I ordered braised short ribs with a topping of fois gras. The fois gras was ordered rare and served well done absolutely naked. The short rib had absolutely no sauce and was served on a bed of corn Niblets. I asked where the gravy was that “just happens” when you make short ribs. He looked totally confused. In my opinion they boiled the chuck in order to make the broth for their onion soup. Shameful. They assume their customers are ignorant.

A bit too dark for my liking, though the overall ambiance was good. It is just too bad that people dining at a table for two, always seem to be put in an out of the way spot.

C'était ma 2e expérience au restaurant du Château. J'ai d'abord essayé votre brunch du dimanche que je recommanderais à tous et qui fût une expérience extraordinaire ! Par contre, notre souper aux Chantignoles fût moins intéressant. La nourriture, quoique goûteuse et de qualité, nous a laissé un peu déçue. Les accompagnements de la viande étaient ok, sans plus. Le serveur nous a proposé verbalement du pain (payant) qui est arrivé accompagné de pollen. Le serveur ne nous a pas parlé du pollen et mon conjoint est très allergique. Ce n'est pas une allergie que l'on pense à signaler d'emblée dans un restaurant. Le service était très ordinaire. Le serveur n'était pas en mesure de répondre à mes questions et nous avons fait notre propre service de vin. Bref, vu les prix et le prestige du restaurant, j'avais des attentes qui n'ont pas été comblées.

Anniversary dinner. Food was good but extremely overpriced (and we eat out a lot at high end restaurants). Lovely dining room. At breakfast the next morning we got placed at a table and waited 5 minutes. No one came over to offer coffee or talk about breakfast options. So we found a server in another area and asked for coffee. After eating , we were asked if we had hot or cold buffet or both. We didn't know that we could have selected just one so we had tiny helpings from both. Very expensive.
