First visit to this hotel and restaurant and I must admit that it was a most disappointing bistro lunch experience for me and my guest. This is a luxury boutique hotel restaurant that misses the mark in terms of creating a pleasant warm welcome for its guests. While the setting is lovely, and the menu and wine selection are fine,...

The restaurant at the small, luxury hotel Quintessence turns out beautiful plates of exceptionally prepared, locally influenced cuisine. The atmosphere is very pleasant with professional service. Prices are high but not much more so than the adjacent Tremblant pedestrian village restaurants, and the food at Quintessence is vastly superior to any other establishment nearby. We'd recommend starting your evening with... More

We had brunch at La Quintessence Restaurant on New Year's day. The restaurant itself is absolutely lovely. It has a beautiful view of the lake. We sat at the Wine Bar. It looks like a gentlemen's club with a beautiful wine cellar and cigar humidor. We found the food to be expensive but we enjoyed the overall experience.

The brunch buffet we had here New Years Day was truly exquisite and included French and Canadian delicacies like smoked duck, pork pies, shrimp cocktail and of course amazing eggs benedict. Also had a smoked turkey and pork station and I could go on and on. Finally, there is whole table of home made high end chocolates that we probably... More

Great atmosphere beautiful dining room and great service but the food is average. Questionable flavour combinations suggest a chef trying too hard but also basic cooking errors left us feeling disappointed. Breakfast by contrast was consistently excellent

The hotel is splendid, unfortunately the restaurant is a disgrace and needs a root and branch upgrade. Service was miserable, slow and eventually rude when called to task after waiting over an hour. My wife does not eat meat, her fish came smothered in Veal gravy......God only knows why, the so called waiter thought it was OK and normal. Breakfast... More

We attended as part of a business group, with a fixed menu and a private room. The food was delicious, and although not inexpensive, it was reasonable all things considered. The service was pleasant, but far too slow. It may well be due to the kitchen and not our waiter. We weren't rushing, but we didn't have our main course... More
