    It was my birthday trip to the Chateau Frontenac. We booked the Champlain at the last minute and boy are we glad we did. We were greeted at the door with sparkling wine followed by great food and service in a very unique setting. We weren’t rushed and it was nice and quiet so we could hear ourselves talk. What a concept. Quebec is a long way from where we live but I would go back for sure.

    The restaurant is very nice and the staff friendly and helpful. We did not do the tasting menu but did 2 appetizers (foie gras was okay but La Continental Restaurant’s was much better ). The scallops were good but wouldn’t order them again. Red deer steak was delicious.

    The hotel looks so stately and elegant but inside it was as busy and chaotic as Grand Central station. The restaurant was far more subdued and the pace of the five course dinner was relaxed. Although artfully presented, nothing was even close to be the best thing we ever tasted. Plus I felt sick about 4 hours later. The wine pairings were also nothing out of the ordinary with the exception of the ice wine with dessert (which was our least favorite course). I would go for the scenic view of the river and order off the main menu if we ever return.

    We’ve eaten here many times. It is quite inconsistent. We were finished with dinner in one hour! We ordered a half bottle of wine and had to take nearly a full glass each back to our hotel room when we left! We elected not to have dessert because of how quickly the appetizer and main courses came out. The food was bland and nothing special. For the nearly $300 paid we expected more. We are big fans of Le Château Frontenac and were extremely disappointed in tonight‘s meal and too quick delivery of the food. The lobster terrine was tasty but the scallops and the cod main plates had no taste. There are incredibly wonderful places to eat in Quebec city and this is not one of them.

    Views were spectacular. Ask for seat by window. Food was even better. Though not on menu, they make a wonderful charcuterie board. Seared foie gras melts in your mouth. Scallops were perfectly cooked. Great experience.

    The views from the front half of the restaurant are beautiful overlooking the river. The service was outstanding from start to finish. Needless to say, the food is fabulous. Each dish is picture perfect and the food is cooked perfectly as well. The flavours are wonderful and jazzed up but does not overwhelm the underlying basic food. There are so many extra touches throughout the meal like a complimentary glass of champagne to start. The wine list is quite good. A truly delightful experience from start to finish. We will be returning for sure.

    The food was good, but we thought it was way overpriced. We had a lot better meals at other restaurants in the area that were half the price. Their wine list is ridiculously overpriced as well. Our waiter and the overall service was outstanding!

    Two words: abaolutely amazing!!! Allyson, our server, we named "Superstar Allyson" for her passion and impeccable knowledge of the food and Quebec City. David, the manager, came by several times to make sure everything was perfect. David: EVERYTHING was perfect (congrats on your soon to be wedding, by the way). Music was our favorite French romantic playlist. We did the chef's (Steven Modat) tasting menu and classic wine pairing. Absolutely amazing. We came for our 4 year wedding anniversary and this will be a place we remember forever. Will definitely come back. Food was something you want to swim in. And scarpetta (scrape sauce with bread). We were seated in the previous prime minister's library / office. Just amazing. Bravo, bravo, bravo 🥇🏆

    Amazing 5 course meal with gorgeous view! This is an experience that should be savored. Had a lovely time with harp & cello music while we were dining. Suggest that you also have the wine pairing with the preset dinner as they truly do complement one another.
