Honestly, I’ve had better. The food was tasty but the goat cheese salad came with a tiny goat cheese slice baked on a crusty bread in the middle of the salad. That’s a no no...it’s supposed to be a large circular piece of cheese in the middle with no bread! The tartare was a full size meal portion, which, in Montreal, is an appetizer portion for about half the price and the French fries came lukewarm. Nice waiter, until he grabbed the pay machine out of my hands while I was waiting for the transaction to be approved. I’m not wasting my time here again.

Delightful classic French bistro meal in a well managed restaurant. What a pleasure to be seated upon arrival, have gracious attentive servers who watch and help their comrades at each table. There was no asking for more water or looking for the dessert menu or check. It seemed that they all silently stepped in for each other.
Bouillabaisse with traditional fish, scallops, mussels and clams with a thick broth was not overly salty nor overwhelming with fennel. The beet salad was refreshingly sweet with a honey dressing and melted goat cheese on a large crouton a yummy salty counterpoint. Wild mushroom ravioli had an earthy cream sauce and the pork chop with scalloped potatoes begged to be sucked off the bone- but of course this is a French restaurant and we couldn't do that. Best of all, a classically presented and prepared Crepes Suzette flambeed at tableside- delicious and memorable. The wine list was reasonably priced and had a good selection. I would definitely enjoy dining here again.

Had some sort of snafu with the reservation but the staff worked hard & got us a table - they were super busy. Food was great brasseire style French food. Onion soup was terrific. I had the pork chop which was decent size & expertly cooked. The wife & kids got salmon & were very happy with it. we would go back. Great service.

There were classic French cuisine choices...tender escargot as an appetizer with duck leg confit as my main course and creme brûlée for dessert...absolutely delicious. My husband was equally pleased with his duck salad, fish main course and pear tart dessert. Very reasonably priced for the excellent quality of food. Will go back if I am in Old Quebec again.

We were seated in a quiet corner of the restaurant inside. The service was very attentive and informative. I had the salmon dish, which was very tasty. My partner had the Special Chicken, while it was kinda like comfort food, it was lacking in overall flavor, that one might expect in a French restaurant. Overall is was a good meal while we were on vacation.

The food and service were very good. Sitting outside provided for a great atmosphere. However, the tables were WAY too small. I had to put the bottle of wine on the ground to have room on the table for our glasses and food. I would definitely go back, but I would sit inside if the tables inside are of a more reasonable size.

Best meal we had in Quebec City! It was my birthday and I am allergic to gluten so I was scared going out. The servers English was amazing. Majority of the menu can be made gluten free too. We had the escargo which was AMAZING. We also ordered the foie gras and they gave gluten free bread on the side for me. Our entree was the Beef Cheek and it was EXTRAORDINARY! Our server also helped us pick the bottle of wine. It was a great experience and we ate at many other places in the city that were very subpar.

Cam here with two girlfriends during our weekend trip to Quebec City. Was by far our favorite meal of the trip. Our waiter was great, the noise level was fine (we were able to talk and hear each other without issue), and the food was fantastic. Would absolutely recommend. Need to book well in advance.

Reviews were much better than the actual experience - food was good but certainly not great- billed as a traditional French brasserie, but lacking in lots of areas of charming decor. The front room was Much prettier than the area we were seated in . Scallops in Coquilles st Jacque extremely salty and very overcooked- just not a memorable meal. Fish and chips needs serious work. One of our party's beef cheeks were very good. Service was excellent.

Though the wait staff was really pleasant and the food was good, the carafe of red wine (cabernet blend) was awful. The waiter immediately offered to bring another, but unfortunately, yhe wine still had a musty smell and I couldnt drink it. It should never have been served again the second time.

Was disappointed in what I perceived as a limited menue- I have a saying do not order fish in a steak restaurant - I can now add do not order pasta in a french restaurant - pasta dish was over done - and listed as haing mushrooms - but if you put togetheer all the mushroom pieces I food (and I looked carefully) it would not add up to one whole small mushroom-
