We ordered the prime Rib and 1/2 order Ribs. Great Cesar salad (finding out Canadian's make great Cesars). Ribs standard fare. Prime Rib = 1/3 fat, more than normal. Fries good. mashed potatoes standard. Expensive....but, you're in Quebec City. Any metropolitan city is expensive.

Not so sure but usually all hotels' concierge do this. I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't.
