    Ambiance and service were impeccable. The food was varied and very well prepared. Lots of choices. The oatmeal was outstanding! Fresh baked pastries and fresh juices. The only recommendation was to have some turkey bacon or sausage for those of us that don’t eat pork. There was only roast ham and not roast beef so we could not have any.

    A delicious fancy treat to end our stay in Quebec City. Service was excellent and our favorite tea was the Market Fresh. Plenty of food, but not so much to be uncomfortably full. Was very pricey, but the atmosphere combined with the tastes and service, including the pianist, made it worth the splurge.

    Food was good and site was perfect for our last day in Quebec City. Opted not to have the "All you can Eat" Buffett, which looked amazing and would have been a better value. Did not appreciate the waiter pointing that out to me multiple times.

    Review of Afternoon tea. Cheese selection consisted of one type. Scones were not good. Desserts lacked variety and freshness. Some breads used for sandwiches were stale and hard. Menu selection did not justify price and location. Expected more food, more variety and better ingredients based on the iconic hotel.

    We had high tea at the Fairmont. The scones were not fresh. No hot water refill for the tea. Smoked salmon sandwich was dry - mostly stale bread. The cucumber sandwich was bland and bread was soggy. The foigras sandwich was gross. The pistachio cream dessert was disgusting. The blueberry cake was hard and dry. The maple syrup cream tart was too sweet, as was the maple fudge. This was not a good value, and worst high tea we've ever had.

    My husband and I had breakfast there and really enjoyed our meal. We booked ahead on open table because reservations is a must it’s super busy. We both chose to eat of the menu as we both didn’t want buffet. The coffee was sting and yummy and the French toast was fantastic my husband ordered the eggs Benedict with salmons day he said it was great. I would definitely go back... ask for a window seat the view was lovely!!!
