This was a last minute pick as we couldn't getting a booking into our first choice. The restaurant was about one third occupied and the staff seemed to be milling about as if they weren't sure what they were supposed to be doing. Overall we had service of some sort from five different staff. There was trouble with the sound system and the Barry White tracks didn't seem to match the restaurant's projected ambiance.

It was the food and the wine that made the evening. Fantastic menu choice and the plated presentation was both amazing and unique. The staff seemed inexperienced and really didn't offer any suggestions around the food and drink, and this inexperienced showed when staff asked us to pay the bill - twice!! We enjoyed the food and the staff issues didn't really spoil our evening, but for Quebec City, perhaps not our best dining experience.

Just one street up from la Grande Allee,near the parlement building. The food was imaginative and with well dosed flavors. The presentation was perfect. Nice low background music. The service was attentive. A fine outing. Prices were reasonable.

Very good gourmet food!

Je déplore que vous offriez un service seulement en anglais. Mon expérience fut agréable malgré tout. Si vous aviez une version française je suis sur qu'une clientele francophone apprécierait beaucoup votre service.

J ai decouvert le restaurant grace a Open Table. C etait la 1ere visite.
Nous etions 3, et avons commande des plats differents, tous tres bons, cuisson a point, gouteux, et fidele a la description du serveur.
C est un menu recherche, mais restreint.
Nous avons pris un menu degustation (3 entrees) et 2 menus a 3 services.
Pour les 3, Avec 500 ml de vin, taxes et pourboires le tout a 230$ approx.
Ce fut un belle experience de gouts, j aurai apprecie une entree ( tartare de saumon) plus genereuse.
Il y a quelques surchage pour certains plats dans le menu, je les crois en trop.
Ils ont bien repectes notre horaire car nous allions au spectacle, le retaurant n etait pas trop achanlande.
En general, un tres bon repas et une tres belle experience.

Menu original, mets excellents, carte orginale (table d'hôte d'entrées) , service attentif et agréable.
Niveau de bruit (musique) désagréable, beaucoup trop élevé pour permettre la conversation.

a hidden gem, off the touristic trail, but well worth looking for

The food was excellent, but the service was very slow. Over 3 hours for dinner and they never acknowledged or apologized for this. Fortunately, we were not in any rush.

Five of us for dinner in new years eve with my sins girlfriend who is vegetarian with a gluten allergy. First, the service was great and thank you Pierre. Great wine selection and our dinners were out of this world great.
Appetizers to entree to desert. Had asked to have a vegetable platter for a gluten free meal and have to tell you I would have ordered it as a meal. The chef prepared a wonderful plate of veggies with three different veggie purees to complement the same! The best meal she has had as well.
Will go back next time we visit.
For new years eve, would suggest a little more balloons and festive things, however not required.

this is teal nice place to eat if you are trying to avoid the tourist spots in QC, but still close to Downtown. The tartar are really good. The wine list is also very reasonable

3.0Dined on April 8, 2014

Known for its Tartar... I've have the best I've ever had here and the last... Worst..
My guest's salmon tartar.. Was bland... Not much to get excited ..

I'll come back.. But maybe for diner ..sometimes it's the chef..!

Service was excellent usual..

En général bon restaurant mais cette soirée manqua dans les détails : nourriture un peu froide, cuisson du poisson approximative (trop), attente importante à la fin pour l'addition... SInon pas trop mal, surtout avec l'excellent dessert :)

We decided to check out the New City so we booked a table at 47e. We had a joyful evening. We will return.

The food was delicious as always. The service excellent. It's really close to the Grand Theatre de Québec which makes this restaurant a perfect place to dine before a play. One of my favorites <3

Au 47e parallèle, on mange super bien et on visite plusieurs continents ! Les saveurs se démarquent et les plats valent le prix !
L entrée d'agneau est spectaculaire et le tartare inspiré de l'Inde.. Wow ! Je suis conquise!

If you enjoy having dinner before going to concert, opera or theater, this place is unique. It is also one of the best restaurants in Quebec, in addition to a charming and knowledgeable staff. It's always a pleasure to return.

We had a great experience at this restaurant. It was our first visit and we chose it based on its reputation.
Everything we had on the table d'hote was delicious. The seabass was a small portion of fish but with the ratatouille and previous courses it was perfect.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for it's great food and lovely atmosphere.

Le service y est amical et courtois; nous avons passé une très agréable soirée.
En ce qui a trait au menu, les tartares sont excellent, mais d'autres mets (agneau, foie gras, etc.) sauront aussi vous plaire. Notez qu'il est possible de réserver un salon privé pour les groupes.

The waiting staff is friendly and courteous. We really had a great time. As for the menu, the tartars are great, and so are the lamb and foie gras, to name a few. Note that you can reserve a private salon for groups.

The food is usually good, i had a bad day and made a bad choice so my dish was not that good. The service was really good like usual. I'll continue to go there even if my dish was not excellent :)
