The Tap Room at Hovey Manor for me had better food than Le Hatley.

Toute était parfait sauf la serveuse qu'arretez pas à nous interrompte. Je m'attends que les serveuse font comme s'il n'étaient pas là (subtile) mais elle n'arretez pas à nous poser des questions et faire des commentaires pendant qu'on jasait! Très désagréable.

Les lieux sont magnifiques. Nous avons pris le brunch dimanche, le prix de 40$ ne vaut pas le choix de nourriture servi.
Certes nous payons pour la place et la vue. Mais nourriture décevante. Choix de plats trop traditionnels et sans présentation dans l’assiette. Le buffet est bien mais encore là, rien d’extraordinaire, assez simple.
Le brunch était bon mais je m’attendais à quelque chose de mieux pour la place. Je n’y retournerai pas pour le brunch.

We went to this lovely place at night so we couldn't see the famous grounds, so we could only appreciate the comfortable interior especially the paneled lounge. The service was impeccable and the food was very good - the duck we chose outstanding.

Le lieu du Manoir est extraordinaire mais le restaurant n’était pas à l’hauteur. En entrée riz de veau enrobé de pain d’épices. Semblait intéressant mais on pourrait plus goûter le riz de veau. Plats principales étaient déjà servi avant le vin. Aux dessert nous avons reçu les cafés bien avant le dessert même en expliquant que cela serait l’habitude en Amérique du Nord? En tout, décevante et bien aux dessous nous attentes d’un Relais et Chateux.

Nous étions là pour célébrer notre anniversaire de mariage et ce fût très agréable. D'abord l'accueil et le service furent hors pair et que dire de la qualité de la nourriture.....un vrai Relais&Châteaux. Nous avions été clients réguliers durant quelques années et je ne sais pour quel raison il y a eu cette parenthèse.....

Magnifique expérience gastronomique au Canada, je vous recommande le menu dégustation, le chef vous fait voyager avec des produits locaux parfaitement maîtrisés. l'accord mets- vin était fantastique, notamment l'accord avec le foie gras. Service impeccable, nous sommes bien dans un temple de la gastronomie, ici au Quebec. Un incontournable à faire absolument.

Nous avions un peu peur au moment de faire nos réservations mon mari et moi, des portions puisque un repas gastromique d habitude signifies que les portions sont tres insuffisante mais c étais plus que parfait. Nos amis qui nous visitaient de Toronto ont étes GRANDEMENT épates par l ambiance , le service, et bien sur le repas. Un gros merci d avoir montrer a nos amis qui sont des voyageurs avertis a travers le monde que le Québec est un endroit qui vaut VRAIMENT la peine de venir visiter

Accueil et personnel de salle : excellent
Cuisine : déçu. Entrée de homard caoutchouteux et entrée de thon dégageant une odeur „pas frais“
Plat principal : agneau servi tiède dans une assiette tiède mais cuit selon ma demande, aubergine parfaite; pâtes à la truffe avec peu de goût mais servi dans une assiette chaude.
Dessert au chocolat très bien préparé et le fondant cuit à point.
Dommage que la cuisine ne soit pas dans la même ligne de qualité que le service.

Nothing remarkable here. It may have been an off night but I can’t see what all the excitement is about. Basically good food, served in a wonderful place at a high price.
I’d suggest you try Minton or Auberge Le Cour d’Or for a much better meal.

We have been to Manoir Hovey several times, and love the property and usually have an excellent meal. Our dinner was delicious for the most part, but it wasn't our best ever. One person in our group does not eat veal, so she ordered the lamb. The lamb came with a veal sauce, though, which was not described on the menu. Another person in our group does not like chocolate, so she ordered a 'non-chocolate' dessert that ended up coming with bits of chocolate crumble on it (again, not detailed on the menu). We also had a lot of difficulty getting staff's attention to order our second bottle of wine and waited almost 15 minutes for it, so it didn't get poured until we were halfway through our entrees. Nothing major to complain about, but not the excellence we expect from Manoir Hovey.

Sunday dinner was our second evening dining at the Restaurant Le Hatley - Manoir Hovey. 

We had the opportunity to talk with Chef Alexander Vachon after our excellent dinner on Saturday evening and asked what he would suggest for our Sunday dinner. He asked us a few questions about the type of cuisine and flavours we liked and then proposed to try the fish dishes. Well, our Sunday meal surpassed our expectations. The Chefs suggestion was excellent the staff once again provided a memorable experience at the Restaurant Le Hatley.
 
As we waited for our main dish, the staff presented us with a tasteful portion of small plates that built our anticipation for the main course. My wife chose the Flétan et Légumes d’Été, Consommé du Jardin. I selected the Saumon King du Pacifique. The main dishes were beyond reproach. The fish was cooked just to the right point; the mélange of textures was the strength of this plate.

At this point, we thought we had the highlight of the meal. Then we were presented with a dessert that was specifically suited to my wife food allergies and equally creative and delicious.  The desert included a selection of chocolate dish. I wish I had paid more attention to the description of the items but wanted to taste the desert. 
 
We were impressed with the service and Chef Alexander Vachon cuisine and delicately prepared, immaculately sourced local produce, cooked in the most comfortingly elemental way in glorious surroundings. We will return.

We had a fantastic dinner at Restaurant Le Hatley - Manoir Hovey. The Maitre’ds greeting was relaxed and professional as if he were expecting us for dinner and seated us at a table with a view of the gardens and lake.  The staff that served us paid particular attention to my wife’s food allergies and made us feel valued. Near the end of the evening, the Chef came to our table, and we complimented him on the meal. We had the fresh summer green salad and especially liked the flavors of the local organic vegetables, and the birch syrup vinaigrette. For the main course, we had the Québec lamb artichokes, flat beans, cavatelli, split sauce. I chose for the desert the Québec strawberry marmalade, yogurt ice cream, with citrus mascarpone cream. My wife chose the rhubarb & boreal spices almond & green alder ace cream, field berries. We mentioned to the Chef that the meal was excellent and asked what he would recommend for tomorrows dinner. Our second meal also equally as good with different flavors, a true sign of great kitchen two great meals.

Habitués du restaurant pour le brunch du dimanche, nous avons été déçus par la variété et la qualité de notre repas. Le service a été impeccable mais le pain n’était pas frais, la variété des mets faisait défaut. La qualité/prix n’était pas au rendez-vous.
Une baisse évidente de la qualité et l’originalité des sélections.

Service excellent, repas chaud excellent, mais je trouve que pour appeler cela « brunch du dimanche » il manquait quelques éléments dans la table du buffet comme différents fruits en tranche autre que melon d’eau, creton, fromages diversifiés (la seule assiste de fromage contenait 2 tranches) saumon fumé...

Ce fut une belle sortie parce que, pour nous qui sommes des gens du coin, le Manoir Hovey demeurera toujours un endroit d’exception.

Was expecting better food from a Relais et Chateau restaurant. The second night ate at the Tap Room and the scallops were much better than the salmon, I thought. Salmon good bit not exciting. Nor was the rhubarb dessert. Ate at your restaurant three years ago and it was much better then, I thought. Good this time but not exceptional. Loved the ambience and the stay in the Manoir for two very restful and quiet nights.
