We had a great family meal at 1640. The atmosphere was inviting, yet formal. We had our 3 children with us (ages 14,11, & 5). They all enjoyed their food and were treated very well. The food was very good and the service was as superb.

Took our 2 teenaged daughters. Their favorite meal on our trip. Live music was moderately loud and high quality. Almost everyone was having fun.

We went twice: the lunch in the bar area was quick, fresh, and totally worth it. We went for a late dinner the next night, with a reservation, and the wait staff seemed to go off duty Galway through our meal. It took 40 minutes to recover the first course and 80 minutes to receive the second, after which we abandoned the desserts as half of those dining couldn’t stay awake - also, one ordered soup, and didn’t receive any food until the second corse despite reward requests. The cocktails were fragrant and tasty but almost devoid of a Alcohol. The pasta and onion soups were tasty. Our favorites the planche / plank of appetizers. Delicious! Both the recorded music in the dining area and the live music in the bar were good, but unfortunately equally loud and overlapping through the evening meal. Go at lunch - eat somewhere else for dinner!

We booked late in the day on a Friday and were seated in the dining room area vs the bar area which is a bit noisy with the live music (though nice if you are there to listen vs trying to talk over it ). The dining room was very pleasant and we could hear the soft jazz in the next room. Great service and a surprisingly good fixed menu for a very reasonable $37. Wine menu was good and affordable as well. Overall a great value.

We went there for Valentine’s Day and it did not disappoint. In fact, we went back the next day for a late breakfast! Both meals were outstanding and the service was amazing. Our bartender Megan made us feel very at home. I would recommend to anyone.

c’était super sauf un point. j’avais dit que c’était pour un anniversaire et là personne a l’entrée la dit à la personne que c’était justement son anniversaire et ensuite j’ai demandé si on donnait une attention pour la fête et on m’a répondu oui un gâteau et une chandelle. on m’a demandé de choisir entre deux choix de gâteau pour finalement qu’on me charge le gâteau à la toute fin! habituellement si vous m’offrez pas ce service il faut dire que le gâteau sera chargé ...

I made reservations for 12/31 for lunch. No one seemed to know about the reservation. After some discussion, the hostess, a snooty girl if I ever saw one, tried to seat my husband and me in the Bistro section, while we expected to be seated in the restaurant area. She would not let go and tried to convince us against all reason that the two areas are the same. Compare high school cafeteria area to white linen restaurant area and you get the picture that the two are not alike at all.

It took three attempts on her side and three refusals on ours to be finally seated in the restaurant area. Then the menu turned out to be a very limited bvasically quick menu items. When you see their web site, they serve beautiful dishes and it says nowhere that these are not available during lunch. Overall, a great disappointment with very mediocre food.

We came here for Xmas eve meal and all chose from the prix fixe menu. The food was plentiful and fresh with creative presentations of Quebecois cuisine and the service was attentive. Drinks and wine were all very nice as well. They had live Xmas music as well which made the evening even more festive. Very enjoyable. Recommended.

My husband and I had a lovely 35th anniversary dinner. The food was absolutely fantastic. The salmon was prepared perfectly, good beer and wine. The live music was a special touch. Things seemed to get busy when a cruise ship group arrived so highly recommend making reservations. Great location.

The restaurant didn't honor our reservation, not because it was a mistake but they generally don't do that if you don't make the reservation a day or two in advance! Didn't help that I had a confirmation from them! No real apology, they couldn't care less. They are always busy anyway, all their patrons are tourists who don't come back anyway. Not recommended!

I visited the restaurant 22 years ago and it was superb. Still consider it one of the best meals i ever had and i've been to a lot of prestigious places in Europe and New York. But now, they are cutting the cost big time. Disposable paper napkins that look like fabric? Really???
My husband ordered file Mignon and they served him rib eye or whatever the hell it was. It definitely wasn't file mignon. Chocholate cone had undissolved sugar in it which made it impossible to eat. Overall, a big disappointment.

Great location near Hotel Frontenac and stairs leading to Basse Ville (lower old city). Food was good, live music was fun( if a bit tacky), and atmosphere was fun. Reasonably priced for the area.

Lovely experience at this well-established restaurant in old Quebec. Made a last minute booking and got a great table in a quiet corner. Restaurant was busy but didn't impede the ambience of the place. Food was excellent traditional French cuisine, nicely presented. Duck confit was delicious and the lamb shank perfectly cooked. Wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
