    Taverne chez Louise = de la bonne humeur, de la bonne bouffe gastronomique abordable avec ses produits du terroir et de belles innovations culinaires. Les cocktails sont bons, les importations privées abondent et l’ambiance est chaleureuse!

    Highly overpriced new years dinner. We ate at 530 pm and were still charged the 175$ menu. The food was good not amazing, definitely not worth $500 for two adults and one child. Felt taken advantage of.

    Do NOT get the vegetarian plate. I will post a picture if allowable. It was the most disgusting array of veggies( and a mozzarella ball on top)ever seen. The fish and chips was fine.

    Service and ambience was first rate! Unfortunately, only one third of the choices on the menu was available. We were limited to three choices. This was a bit strange for a Saturday night in September, but perhaps a boat tour had been through earlier. Fortunately, we are easy going and just chose from the remaining three items. The food was very good.

    Louise Tabern is in a lovely stone building with a lively bar. We were optimistic about dinner. After reading in reviews that the artichoke hummus app was good, we went with it. There were 4 small pieces of pita already soggy from sitting in a pool of oily mash of artichoke pieces and hummus. Pass. My partner ordered a burger and told it had to to be medium cooked rather than med rare due to Quebec regulations, but he’d tell the chef to go on the rarer side. That didn’t happen and so the burger was dry. I ordered the fish of the day… halibut on mashed cauliflower. The latter were large chunks of the vegetable and I couldn’t eat it. It was impossible to determine the sauce ingredients. I would definitely pass on this place and try a lovely bistro called Echaud not far from it if you want a good meal.

    Overall, we had a lovely experience dining at Louise Taverne. We were able to sit outside on a lovely night in Quebec, which was perfect. The service was decent. The cocktail menu provided many interesting options, including our favorite the Paper Plane. One downside was the vegetarian option, which lacked the composition of a complete meal. The lamb and halibut were very good, with complex flavors and components. We would recommend Louise Taverne to friends traveling to Quebec City.

    We stumbled upon ouise Taverne while looking for a less-tourist-ridden spot in Old Quebec on our recent visit -- and we enjoyed it so much we canceled our dinner reservations and mad reservations to come back! Its excellence was made clear by the fact that -- even at 8:30pm on a Thursday night in late July -- it was packed with locals. The staff we encountered all spoke excellent English (but were nonetheless indulgent of our attempts at French). The wine list was also good and included some interesting local options. Would absolutely, positively recommend!

    Service was inattentive and it took over an hour to receive our mains. It does ruin the dining experience when you are constantly looking around for your server and wondering when your food will arrive. Our experience in QC was that service was lackluster generally. But, the food was excellent here. They need to do a better job with air conditioning during a heat wave. It was very hot in the restaurant. If it’s a cool day and you are patient, you will have a delicious meal here.

    Some of the food was great like the bone marrow appetizer and the hamburger. However, there were some real misses like chunks of fat on the lamb and the overcooked creme brulee. The waitress was also absentee for much of the meal. The experience did not live up to expectations.
