Our group of four came from Calgary, Saskatoon, and Toronto and we cannot thank the staff at La Cuisne enough for making this rare family meal one to remember. From our initial contact by email to our departure from this fine restaurant, the service was beyond reproach while the food and the atmosphere were simply fantastic. This is an exceptional... More

We dined on Sunday evening, without booking in advance. Our waiter, Renaud did a great job- he's friendly, good English speaker (not too common in this part of Quebec...) and was very nice to chat with, despite the busy evening. We had Foia Gras of duck and Fondue of cheese for a starter- both were very tasty, although small portions.... More

Had the general Tao chicken. It was served quickly and was very tasty. Best I have ever had. A little on the pricey side but the service and food were both exceptional.

It gas been at least a year su ce my last visit but the food is still wonderful. We had the calamari appetizer and it was delicious. The soups was creamy and the muscle main course was very very good. The pear tart desert is a light delight.

We were a very large group and the staff were great. The pasta with duck was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant and wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

I was in Saguenay for a conference which had an unfortunately timed cocktail hour. We arrived shortly before closing for a real meal and they were kind enough to seat us. I had a delicious goat cheese salad and tasted my friend's chicken, another friend's lamb, and we ordered fries for the table. EVERYTHING, and I mean everything, was delicious!... More

Went on a Sunday evening - one of the few restaurants open. Good food and good service. Quality of food was excellent and presentation was first class. Would certainly recommend a visit.

This is the best restaurant I’ve ever been to. The atmosphere is distinguished and warm. The staff is caring and thoughtful. Our waiter was smiling and full of attention for us. He provided us with helpful pieces of advice in food & wine matching. The table d'hôte menu is original and refined. The portions are adequate. My bone marrow dish... More

This place has been a long time favorite for me, as I live in the same town. We have seen then evolve with their clients, always updating the menu and decor. Nice private room for reunion or special occasions. One of the rare place in town to offer a lovely view on Saguenay river, only at the second level though.

The menu is varied. I had the pork which was a lump of meat sitting on mashed potatoes with sauce, presentation could have been better. One of us ordered a vegetarian risotto and it came with fish so we did not really eat together, as the dish had to be sent back and a new one cooked
