Wonderful ambience at this restaurant in Que. That offers sidewalk and indoor seating and is close to petit Champlain shoppes and more.
The food was awesome , the service was very great !
Beau restaurant, malgré qu’ils étaient très occupé nous avons passé une très belle avec des bons musiciens, autant la nourriture que la présentation tout était parfait ! Même si le menu était restreint nous avons trouvé notre compte! Je le recommande fortement!
Très bel endroit feutré. L’ambiance était tout simplement parfaite avec le musicien sur rue. Expérience à renouveler.
The view on the Château Frontenac is outstanding! Such a beautiful terrace. The food is great and prices are very reasonable.
bonne bouffe et bonne ambiance, service de qualité
Excellente bouffe pour tous les mets. Savoureux et bien équilibrés.
Très belle expérience, très beau décor, belle ambiance, éclairage parfait, musique d'ambiance parfaite et agréable de façon qu'on s'entendais bien.
La serveuse avait 20 ans d'expérience, rien à dire. Parfait. Très aimable, polie, généreuse de son temps et chaleureuse.
Les entrées étaient dignes des grandes tables de Québec. Présentation impressionnante. Foie gras excellent. Mets principaux très bons ( joue de bœuf/ pâtes fruits de mers ) mais pas au même niveau que les entrées. Choix de vin extrêmement décevant pour un resto qui se dit : «viandes et vins». 4 choix de vin rouge seulement !! Pas de carte des vins. Meilleure bouteille du resto à 42$ .. Somme tout, on a apprécié notre soirée. Rapport qualité prix honnête.
Nous avons adoré notre soirée.
Nous allons certainement y retourner.
Très bien situé, menu intéressant, carte des vins abordable, service courtois et souriant malgré les masques, repas délicieux!
Excellent restaurant! La qualité de la nourriture est juste wow!
Malgré les mesures de distanciation, belle ambiance par une belle soirée et service très attentionné. Portions généreuse et excellent goût. Nous y retourneront.
Tout était super ! Personnel super gentil la bouffe super bonne et belle présentation. Je recommande ce resto
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at the 1640 Bistro the evening before we decided it was time to practice real social distancing. Things were just starting to be more strongly clamped down due to the Covid 19 crisis. The bistro sat everyone with at least one table between each group and actually turned customers away to keep the numbers down. Our server kept contact to an absolute minimum, but was attentive, engaging and warm.
As for the food, in a word, delicious. I had the prawn salad and it was fresh & crisp with a wonderful assortment of items mixed in: figs, almonds and a kind of light, whipped cheese that was a complete surprise and delight. My wife had the cheese plate which, as usual, was filled with a tasty assortment of local products.
All in all, a tasty experience with fine service (especially considering the circumstances) and wonderful food. Will definitely go back when the world opens up again.
Very nice atmosphere and great food for a reasonable price. Service was perfect. Had a great time.
Le meilleur restaurant où nous avons mangé.
Tout était délicieux, de l'entrée jusqu'au dessert.
Le dôme au chocolat était digne des meilleures pâtisseries européennes.
De plus, la présentation des plats était superbe.
Fabulous meal - terrific ambiance - order the cadillac at the bar!
Wonderful atmosphere, excellent food. We greatly enjoyed hearing live piano music while we had dinner. Staff were attentive, pleasant, easy going. Highly recommend.
outstanding, great food, great service thankyou for a wonderful evening. will look forward to coming back
Beautiful place overall and the food was a perfect portion just received a cold steak and the server didn’t seem busy to check on us so I ate my sides and then we had to flag her down when I received my steak again it was hot this time but definitely wasn’t medium like I asked it was very bloody so I didn’t get to enjoy it all. The creme brûlée was seriously the best !!!!
Nous avons adoré notre expérience et nous y retournerons assurément!!!
A very comfortable environment with excellent service and a good menu of quality food.
Get service. Food was excellent. The wine was great. I would highly recommend dining here.
J’adore cet endroit, on y mange bien et que dire de l’ambiance avec un musicien!!! Parfait pour les soirées en amoureux!!
Seule nuance à faire, les plats sont excellents mais le menu est plutôt limité.
Restaurant is in two parts, up front seemed to have a nice atmosphere and live music which was one of the reasons we made the reservation. Arrived and the front half was full so they put us in the back, we were the only ones there but others did follow, it's dark and on the way to the washroom. Would have immediately left except we were tired and hungry. Food and service was ok but overpriced for what it was. If you're going insist you sit in the front half, not the back.
Très bon choix de menu ont a essayé de nouvelles choses
Service was friendly and fine. Mediocre food. Music was way too loud. It was annoying and distracting and took away from a fairly charming atmosphere.
The waiters were professional and kind but I wouldn’t go back for the food.
Très bon service, belle ambiance.
Moins aimé mon filet mignon à cause du côté sucré !!! Mais pour le reste excellent bon vin belle entrée et bon désert !!!
Merci super belle soirée très contente nous allons y retourner !!!
Dès notre arrivée, nous avons reçu un très bel accueil. Le service fut très bon. Le serveur fut de bon conseil.
On a répondu à nos attentes.
Set in an amazing building and great location, you might be worried that it’s going to be a mediocre, tourist trap but it’s not. It is a great place for food, ambiance. I managed to dine and drink there several times. It’s on my go-to list for any future visits to Quebec City.
Enjoyed Christmas dinner here and the food was fantastic. The service was also outstanding, especially given it was a holiday.
Bistro 1640 was our third dinner out in Quebec City over the Christmas holidays. Its proximity to other fine restaurants and in the shadow of the Chateau Frontenac enhances the ambiance. The staff were very professional and accommodating. The menu is unique - a table d'hote of Burrata/Fig Salad, Scallops with Gremolata Prawns and dessert of Maple Syrup Creme Brulee! Magnifique! The accordion player provided us with lively music, including a chosen love song that I sang with him. We were given a restaurant-wide applause. Of course, I played the spoons.
We had fun at 1640 on Christmas. I do think the Open Table site should have noted there was a limited, prix fixe menu for the evening ($55/person). We are just not big eaters, and I would have gone elsewhere. The food was uneven, but pretty good. We loved the fig salad and bison starters, the tartare not so much. For dinner, the pork chop was great, the duck pasta was good but the sauce was runny, the steak was overcooked, and the shrimp was awful--overdone coconut shrimp with not enough sauce to make the couscous palatable. The creme brulee dessert was delicious, but the almond tart was tasteless--all we ate were the poached pears on top. Loved the accordion player, service was nice. Would go back, but not on a holiday.
I’m surprised why the menu is different than last time ? I wanted snail dish and highly recommend to my husband. But they don’t have. And less choices on the menu. Maybe it’s holiday season. But the server brought us to a table by the window That’s a nice !
Très belle ambiance du temps des fêtes.
Le service a été très bien.
La nourriture excellante
We got there a little early but that was no problem, our server sat us down right away. He gave us lots of time to look over the menu and wine list. He was very good at his job (didn’t catch his name unfortunately).
Our food was nice and hot. Husbands beef cheeks were so tender and my seafood pizza was very good.
The wine was on the pricey side but it was good.
We would return if in the area again.
