Food was good but it was over-priced. Service was good but we went on a weekday and it was not busy.

I knew I would be in quebec city and we wanted a steakhouse. After reading all the reviews on here we chose Le Charbon. Typical steakhouse atmosphere, service was good. Entrees were flat, aspargus soup whose only flavour was creme and imperial rolls that were deep fried beef with the vegetables on the side. For the main dish both steaks... More

They don't rush you. It's more of an experience. They bring you some free snacks while you waiting. My husband got the fillet steak he enjoyed. I got the rib eye but it was too fatty for my liking but tasted good. The waitress was very accommodating to us and the kids. She didn't care for the mashed potatoes and... More

Made a reservation for two - got there and had to wave for them to get us seated and greeted ! They sold us their best wine to come back and say they don't have it ! We asked for a green salad because we don't like blue cheese and NO MUSHROOMS in my food since IM ALLERGIC to mushrooms...... More

Returned to Charbon after 3 years and found it just as we remembered: awesome steaks, great service and classy atmosphere. It's in an historic train station and filled with energy. They check your coat. Really full menu and everything cooked to perfection. Highly recommended. I call it memorable.

We went for dinner in New Year's Eve and was seated immediately. The service was fantastic. The ambience was nice and we had the best dessert ever!

Came for the dry-aged steak they were famous for. Staff were excellent and the service was great. Coat check and right off the road. Cocktails and wine list was great. There were plenty of options on the menu and sauces and sides to go with the entrée. Steaks weren't bad but nothing to write home about. I had the 14oz... More

This was supposed to be a special night but it was awful, we were a party of four to celebrate my wife's birthday. I would have normally done my nut and complained but didn't want to spoil the night anymore. With a steak you get ONE vegetable (choose wisely ) and a choice of chips or a whole baked potato....

Had dinner at the bar with friends and although the service was fine the food is just not good. The absolute worst NY Strip I've eaten and the baked potato was cold, small and not well presented. Good place to grab a drink and maybe an appetizer but a sad attempt at a premier steak house.
