Just returned from Quebec City

Loved L'Echaude - went twice. begged for the recipe to their chicken liver pate (which is really more of a terrine)but no luck. it's got a classic bistro menu, and everything we had was prepared beautifully.
Yuzu was a big disappointment. The food was above average, but not as good as my favorite sushi places in NY. But the service was horrid. At first we assumed disinterest on the part of the waiter. But, with the exception of an order of edamame, we waited 1 and 1/2 hours for our sushi. Questions like "do you think we've ordered enough?" were met with "I don't know how much you eat." The waiter never asked how we were enjoying the meal - or we might have mentioned that the cooked fish and vegetable dish had undercooked, inedible potatoes. Clearly a trendy spot, but unless you simply must eat sushi, give Yuzu a pass.
Although we stayed at the lovely Dominion 1912, we twice ended our evening in the comfortable lounge at Auberge St-Antoine. We were able to order desert and coffee there, and avail ourselves of the fireplace and wingback chairs.

  1. Thanks for your review MeginNY. I've just arrived and am staying at Dominion too. Will try Auberge St Antoine based on your recommendation and will avoid Yazu.
