We made reservations to be seated at the bar on 12/30/22. Our server, the bartender, provided the best service ever. Our food was delicious. When ever we are back in Quebec City, it we be our first stop. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We stayed for New Years eve at their restaurant and for other than atmosphere it gets a 1 star. It was insanely overpriced, the menu for the night was 85% seafood and the liquor choices they had were not very wide. Not to mention they...were out of items on their specific New Years menu (the only few items you could chose from) and we had made reservations a month in advance. We asked for some bread of sorts (as only half of us enjoy seafood) and we had to request 3 times before they finally brought us some. They were out of the ravioli and was substituted with cheap macaroni and the pork dish was so full of fat she couldn’t eat 1/4 of it. The meal was 150$ per person, and all 6 of us left hungry with an average bill of 500$. It’s a good thing we enjoyed each others company because it was the only positive thing from the evening.More

This post-pandemic trip had many first but the #1 first was staying at Hotel Port Royal where the Louise Tavern is located. We checked in late and needed a night cap. Jeff took care of us. We needed a post-dinner drinks/dessert on a busy Fri...night and Jeff took care of us again! We promised that we will be here for dinner on our next trip to Quebec! Did I mention that Jason makes an awesome Irish Coffee and Bianca was wonderful? Cant wait to see you all on our next visit! Thank you!More

We had several good meals during out stay in Quebec City, but it was Louise Tavern that we chose to return to for our last meal. Friendly helpful staff (our french is poor), great food and wine. And a fun atmosphere.

We had the pleasure of discovering Louise Tavern on a recent few days in Quebec. There are a few restaurants we return once or twice a year when in Quebec from Montreal. Louise Tavern was a new experience for us and it was perfection from...the moment we arrived to when we left several hours later. Starving for a memorial dining experience (pun intended) so lacking the past few years, our evening at Louise Tavern was exactly what we needed. From the minute we walked in to a warm welcome, hearing the lively hum and buzz inside, seeing the beautiful and welcoming decor, seeing the activity in the kitchen, great music in the background set the tone for the evening. The service was the best we have experienced in years and all thanks to our amazingly professional and personable server Bianca. Though she was extremely busy through out our dinner, she was very attentive, never seemed rushed and was engaging. The other staff we engaged with were excellent as well. The entire meal was very high standard, great menu to choose from, portions were very generous and the all excellent quality. I cook alot and am known for excellent meals so this experience was such a wonderful gift! We cannot recommend Louise Tavern enough and we cannot wait to return to enjoy another wonderful experience there. Thank you!More

Our meal was so good the first night that we returned again two days later. The food, the service and the ambiance was great. The duck special on our second visit was very different and very good.

Everything about Louise Taverne was perfection. As is typical in higher-end Quebec restaurants there was a seamless interplay of four or five different staff personalities throughout the evening, though our main waitress was Bianca. She was a wonderful server who, though extremely busy (a machine,...really), did everything with finesse, aplomb, and a generosity of spirit and friendliness, while balancing that with professionalism and efficiency. My wife and I shared a small charcuterie platter, which was really nicely prepared and presented. I then had a beef tartare which was beautifully and subtly seasoned and, as such, was very flavourful. It was a fabulous evening with wonderful ambience and a great buzz. Highly recommended!More

We wanted the feel and meal of a French bistro, and this place delivered exactly that. Had the steak special for two, and it was great. Service was very friendly. Tried a Canadian Bordeaux blend, and it went great with our meal. We went on...a Sunday night, and the place was hopping.More
