We went for dinner here during a romantic Valentine's trip to Montreal. It was an extremely cold night, but we felt really cozy and comfortable in this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was attentive and friendly. Suggested for a special anniversary or birthday dinner.

We took the degustation menu and were a bit underwhelmed unfortunately. The food was good, but I was expecting more refinement considering the price. The food was a bit 'boring', and I have eaten similar food elsewhere that was cheaper. I really loved their dessert however. The service was very nice and friendly. They also have free valet parking, which... More

Le Saint-Amour is in the old city on a small back street. We first heard about it from our taxi driver. The outside was beautifully lit with a strong wooden door. It is not a huge place which is nice. The decor was unique and appropriate. Jim, our waiter, was fantastic. He suggested a great wine and was courteous enough... More

Rather surprised by the reviews and expected more. The service was good, the wine was excellent but the food was just ok. Trying too hard is what came to mind. And the decor was just odd. Plastic flowers above us and we could just not figure out what the theme was. Overall, a disappointment after the reviews were so positive.

Bonjour madame Lewis, I am sorry to read that we haven't meet your personal expectations. Our decor is unique for sure, Giovanni Maur is a designer who's creations doesn't leave anyone neutral. Still, we hope you had a lovely time with us and during your journey in the old capitale. Best regards, Marcela for la brigade More

It's a very famous restaurant in Quebec city. I was with a group of friends and we had the 3 course menu. I did not get amazed by any specific dish, but I do recall that all of them were very well prepared and presented. For the grand finale, we went for a tour to the restaurant's wine house, which...
