    Each time we have dinner at Le Saint-Amour, we think the experience cannot be topped from the prior visit. We were wrong again! We had an absolutely fabulous meal from the Discovery menu. Jean-Michel, whom we request each visit, was our server. We put the wine pairings in his hands and he did not disappoint! I can't wait to come back again.

    food was excellent but the service was very poor and enough to put a real damper on our celebration dinner. After receiving our cocktails, our meal didn't come for over an hour and our waiter never checked in with us and was rather impersonal and clearly uninterested in us/our table. For the $$ we spent on the dinner, a real disappointment.

    We were seated next to people with a toddler watching tv! Might as well have been at an airport. The servers kept getting the delivery wrong (whose was what) and the bill was handed to the birthday boy without checking who it should go to. I don't think I would eat here again. We had brunch at Chez Boulay where the attention was 100% better.

    Food was undeniably amazing - we, in particular, enjoyed the foie gras Experience plate. However, service was lacking. We were completely unsure as to who our server was as we were left alone the entire evening, and had to flag a host down every time we needed something, and we had to ask multiple times as well. Hosts did readily come by with water and bread however, which we appreciated.

    I am in Quebec City to attend French school so I was dining alone. The service, atmosphere and food was amazing. In particular, my server was awesome because he allowed me to practice my French and was kind enough to speak slowly for me. Thanks for a wonderful evening! I highly recommend this place.

    The service was fantastic as was the food. The only reason I gave 4 stars for service rather than 5 was because we waited well over an hour between the starter and the main meal. By the time it arrived we had been in the restaurant for over 2 hours. That said the staff are delightful. Slightly surprised that all of their magnificent plants in the greenery-like dining room were plastic. The room is looks lovely however.

    Ambiance - wonderful, enchanting Service - very attentive Food - excellent though we have had and enjoyed better rack of lamb The Foie Gras was perfect Wine list extensive but expensive for its list of wines The only quirk was why we had to wait for a reservation we had made several weeks in advance AND confirmed by email and yet on arrival the concierge had to check with someone else before we were shown to our table Will return some day Gourmets from Manitoba

    The service was so slow and disappointing. It took 40 minutes to get our appetizers and our main dishes came after waiting a further 1 and a half hours! We had to keep checking the status of our meals with our waiter which didn't help to get our meals sooner. It was further disappointing when we finally got our meals to find that it was inedible (too salty!) I ordered the farm squab with oyster mushrooms. All told - a VERY disappointing experience and I would NOT recommend this restaurant.

    We choose the Inspiration menu and enjoyed every course. The venison dish was perfection. And it was almost too much food. The service was great. They were attentive without being overbearing. Next time we are in town we will be having another meal.

    Just a fantastic meal. All the waitstaff were bilingual, and even humored me as I tried to make do with my marginal command of french. The food was superb. We both had the lamb, and the combination of seasonings, sides, and sauces was preposterously intersting, amazing and delicious. We were both searching our memories for a time when we had eaten such a fantastic meal. Wonderful, wonderful dining experience.

    This was one the best dining experiences we have had. I had excellent scallops, my wife the beef. The mushroom appetizer was a superb choice. This is a must when traveling to Quebec! If you are looking for a dining choice worthy of Paris or any other European capital, look no further..

    You've seen him as a judge on the show Les Chefs!, but Jean-Luc Boulay was already a well known gourmand in Quebec before he made a splash on TV. His dedication to "respecting the product" is legendary, and in his restaurant on Rue Sainte-Ursula, he puts this respect to good use with a cuisine inspired by local ingredients. It even draws in stars like Paul McCartney!
