Noting the bar was packed and even roped off with queue decided to take afternoon tea as this restaurant had many open tables. Middle aged lady host is quick to direct you away from the windowed terrace front room with a view if you don't pass the test - no reservation and not staying in hotel. This was unnecessary as...

We had Sunday brunch here. There was a bit of a wait (20 minutes) because the other Chateau restaurant that normally serves brunch was closed that day, but the wait was not too bad. Our table was next to a window with a beautiful view of the Terrace. The breakfast selections were excellent (I almost overdosed on the crepes, eggs... More

The Hotel Frontenac is absolutely gorgeous...a castle of renown. We ate lunch at the Terrace Restaurant, sitting by the window and watching a most beautiful day from a gorgeous location. A dream come true. We did not stay at the Hotel, but we were able to enjoy its luxury from just walking about the first level. The meal was pricey,... More

There are very few bars that you go to that have geniue mixologist that prepare your drink. The 1680 is one of them not to miss. The bar is old and beautiful, the view is nice and the drinks are Wonderful. Although this is true be prepared to pay for the expertise, we very much enjoyed our couple hours spent... More

We stopped for a drink and snack and found the service to be non existent and the place itself less attractive up close. It was very touristy and after checking out the expensive menu we decided not to stay. They are living on an old reputation.

We ate lunch here. The food was very average. We exited, and have experienced much better, food at Fairmont hotels. The price for lunch was also over the top (>$200). Of course we knew the cost before we ordered but that was a little $$$$ even for me. We were hungry and did not want to walk further to another... More

After a long and cold walk around the city we went into the Frontenac and sat down in the delightful pub. The view was spectacular and we asked for a couple of glasses of wine. Much to our upset we were told that our 14 year old daughter could not be with us in the pub. We left - very... More
