    Notre serveuse était très aidante, très sympathique, mais elle gagnerait à parler moins fort. Alors qu’elle servait le couple de la table d’à côté de la nôtre, nous ne nous entendions plus parler entre nous tellement elle parlait fort au couple de clients attablés à côté de nous, si bien que nous croyions que c’était eux, alors que c’était elle. Il y a déjà trop de bruit excessif dans les restaurants, s’il faut que le personnel se mette également à crier, on ne s’en sortira jamais.

    A warm welcome by Eloise and a highly competent and friendly Hughes to serve our table. The chef prepared a wonderful plant-based dish of penne pasta with a pesto sauce. Every mouthful was a delight, indeed a taste sensation - very flavourful. The Bistro honored us with a complimentary chocolate cake to mark our 6th day of our honeymoon travels. Thank you to the staff at the Bistro le SAM for taking such good care of us during our brief stay in Quebec City. So very much appreciated. MA Lacasse

    We went here for dinner during our trip to the city. I made a reservation about a month in advance to ensure we'd get a table. The staff were all very friendly. Our waitress, Marie-Claude, was awesome. Very attentive and friendly. We got the calamari as an appetizer and it was quite large - enough for two or three people. It was very good. For the main entree, we both got the flank steak with blue cheese sauce special with potatoes, pureed, and roasted cauliflower. The steak was amazing. So tender and flavorful. We thought initially we'd get dessert too, but ended up being too full. The portions were generous. I was worried we'd get super small portions like some fancier restaurants, but that was not the case here. We had a great table by the window and could look at the boardwalk and river. The tables are a good size so you don't feel cramped and they aren't close to the other patrons. We had a great experience and would definitely return the next time we visit the city.

    Food was plentiful and the service was great. Located in the Chateau Frontenac soninwas prepared to pay a hefty price for food (but damn!). I would recommend to a friend and go back.

    I don’t normally give such a bad review, but I couldn’t comment on anything as we waited 15 minutes to sit. After requesting a table in the porch area by a window they sat us looking at the bar in the back of the restaurant. We ate there the other night and all was very good. We asked to move since this was a special evening for us. The hostess said I will check. The porch area was half empty. This was at 8:15 pm. Since the kitchen closed early I do t believe it could fill up in the next 15 minutes. I was right. We sat waiting 15 minutes for an answer and finally the hostess told us they were setting a table. We waited another 10 minutes then the server from the other night asked us what’s wrong. We explained we were waiting. She asked the hostess and then the hostess came to our table and said there are no seats. We explained we would not stay. As an fyi we were polite and the previous night ordered drinks and a bottle of Champaign for $230.00. Also tipped &100.00. So very unprofessional and disappointing. We went to a locL patio and had French onion soup escargot and a few drink’s. The night was salvaged . No thanks to the restaurant. Up side we saved about $350.00

    A party of one does not get access to the main dining room with windows overlooking the river, no matter the time or willingness to wait. You will be relegated to a dark room with wood paneling, no windows and tv’s. No exceptions. I wanted to leave but got talked into sitting down in this dismal room while a beautiful summer evening was just out of view. On the upside, the roasted cod was delicious.

    Every little things that make a nice evening were there. Staff attention, tasty meals pair with a good bottle of wine and topped with the view over the St-Laurence.
