    Disappointing. Two servers assigned to out table but neither was especially friendly or attentive. We waited over 30 minutes for a water glass to be refilled, but it never was until I asked directly. (Plates cleared around it twice, the glass even ignored after being pushed to the end of the table where it couldn't be missed.) Asked one server's advice on a beer to order, described what I typically liked. He said "I'll bring you __" which I thought was a little odd. It would have been nice if he had offered to let me try it first or took the time to describe a couple and let me choose between the two of them instead. He also never checked in with me after to ask if I liked it (I didn't). We waited over an hour after our appetizer for the main course to come, and unfortunately the wait was not worth it. Mediocre food, less than mediocre service. The view was lovely, but the atmosphere was loud and not especially pleasant. All in all, I am considering canceling my reservation at the hotel's other restaurant for tomorrow night.

    Definitely a destination restaurant—super busy, yet the staff were wonderfully accommodating. The food was wonderful and the table we had was perfect for date night. We were tucked away in what felt like a private little alcove in the midst of a busy dinner rush.

    Made a 9:00 reservation, I arrived to their bar at 8:15 for a drink. They were calling me by 8:20 telling me I could come early if I wanted. I told them I was at the bar and would come over at 9. At 8:45 before my drinks even arrived, the hostess told me I just leave the bar now because the kitchen was closing at 9. Why do they take reservations for after the kitchen is closing? We were totally rushed. Had to grab our 60 drinks over to our table and quickly place an order. I had the fish and chips, the fries were totally cold and soggy, the salad had a tiny squirt of dressing. I have had better fish and chips from a truck on the street. I didn’t eat anything besides the fish. The waiter asked “you didn’t like it?” I said no, it was bad. He didn’t respond except “do you want dessert “ would not go back here

    Early reservation (weeks ago) may have helped secure a window view overlooking the St. Lawrence. Excellent service. Prices not out of line with nearby top dining. Excellent service from David. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and chef prepared a nice surprise dessert offering at conclusion. We also took the Frontenac tour earlier in the day, which added to the immersive feeling without actually staying there hotel.

    This was our first time in Quebec City, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Our server Sherri was so friendly and accommodating. The food was incredible. My husband and I both had the steak and it was the best steak I’ve ever had. They remembered every detail, and that it was our honeymoon and we were so pleased.

    Service was outstanding. People were pleasant and very attentive. The food was exquisite. Corn chowder, Caesar salad and the seafood stew. Yum!
