This restaurant is wonderful and won’t disappoint. The chateaubriand for two is outstanding as well as the scampi and I have no doubt that anything on the menu would please. Our best meal in Quebec.

Atmosphere and services are excellent. I had a filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. I have been there quite often and definitely recommend to family and friends.

It was our first time in a fine cuisine restaurant, and it blew our mind! The food was absolutely delicious and the waitress was the kindest! She answered all the silly question I had without hesitations. You have got to try the fish!

Great ambiance, first class service, superb food. Having dined in many first class restaurants in Europe, Asia and North America, we rate our recent experience at L'imprévu as among the best dining experience of the past five decades.
