Fue una gran noche, porque le pedí matrimonio a mi novia, todos muy amables en el restaurante, muy cooperativos para hacer de esa noche una gran experiencia. Nuestro mesero Manuel muy atento, amable, agradable , me ayudó a grabar el momento exacto en el que entregué el anillo. Pedimos el menú de degustación con maridaje (paring) todos los platillos sensacionales, el foi gras espectacular al igual que el cordero. Gran restaurante en el hotel mas bonito de Canadá!!

What an incredible dining experience. We had a group of 8 for dinner and from the moment we walked in we were all overwhelmed with how wonderful this restaurant is. The food and service both were exceptional and the views breathtaking. I would highly recommend for groups or for a romantic evening!

Daniel was our server and guided us through the menu and provided excellent service. The 5 course tasting menu accompanied by the discover wine pairing gave us an opportunity to taste wonderful Canadian/Quebecois dishes and explore some new wines.

Even though we chose not to go with Chef Modat’s Tasting experience, I think the selections on the a la carte menu provided ample surprises and new tasting opportunities. It was my first time eating sturgeon and partridge. Lovely just lovely!

Excellent Food with attention to detail. The flavors were exceptionally well developed. Very good service. Wine choices are very good, but the "by the glass" selection is a bit disappointing. Very good cheese selection. Duck breast was heavy on the gristle (which may be normal as I do not eat a lot of duck breast) but the portion size was extra large to compensate. Gluten Free food is equally tasty although selection is less.

We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers. My husband had the sturgeon and I had the snow crab. I had roasted halibut, a special for the night and delicious. My husband had the scallops on the menu and he enjoyed his meal. Our servers were fantastic - attentive but not overbearing. The pacing of the service was perfect.

We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Each dish was amazing and the wine paired to it was spot on! The our head waiter was friendly, attentive and professional, and described the wines very nicely as he served it. The waiter who delivered our courses was very knowledgeable about the ingredients and method of preparation. Both were patient with our questions, happily tolerated my rather rusty French speaking, and spoke in to English as necessary to give a full description of the food and wine. I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and will definitely return on my next visit to Quebec!

We arrived at reception. The woman was on the phone. She didn't acknowledge us. The call ended and she went away. No greeting!! NO "I'll be right back!! NOTHING !!! Several minutes later we were seated by a man who was appropriate. We were dissed.

The hotel is a tourist trap. The bar was vulgar and TOO loud.

We did the chef’s tasting with wine selections. Expensive, yes, but what a meal! From start to finish the food was creative, beautiful, tasty, and unique. Really fun and special evening. Take and Uber or walk, though, you won’t want to drive in that area of town, or after all that food and wine.

I had a terrible experience. I had the pre-fixed menu and found some items unpalatable. Unfortunately all they did was comp me some bottled water on a 100 meal. I found the value for the money to be very very poor for this suppose high end restaurant.

They take advantage of the tourists because they think that we won’t be repeat customers. I am writing this to warn all tourists to stay away.

The room is well situated, overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Diners are warmly greeted and offered a glass of sparkling wine. There are other special treats, like a small hors d’oeurves and sorbet after the entree. The St. Lawrence Bay scallops were cooked perfectly. Our waiter was very attentive. We throughly enjoyed the experience.
