We love Quebec City, specially during Christmas. It is simply magical. Bistro Le Sam located at the World's most photographed hotel "Chateau Frontenac" is one of the best in Quebec City. For the most romantic moments in life, you have to experience this place. The...More

Inside the Chateau Frontenac but should not be missed. Our waiter was exceptional and the dinner did not lack in any way. Lovely setting overlooking the river. Should not be overlooked for a lovely dining experience.

After reading the very mixed reviews I was a tad worried, but all was fine. You can't fail to love entering the Chateau Frontenac to go to dinner. SAM Bistro is a comfortable space, and the widow seats have a fab view, but we were...More

Reservations asked for window view and we had beautiful views of the river. Our service was attentive and unrushed. Drinks were as well prepared as the meals. Everything was done right. A very gracious and pleasant experience.

Had two wonderful meals here, and every dish was excellent. We enjoyed the bacon appetizer, steak frites, lobster rolls, fish and chips. The space was beautiful, the food was tasty... it's worth a stop (ask for a view of the river) even if you aren't...More

Dinner at le Sam was ok but not special. We ordered rack of lamb and filet. The rack of lamb was over cooked and the filet was not very tender. The service could be improved on. We waited a long time for our waiter to...More

The location of this restaurant couldn't be better - located right inside the Chateau Frontenac. What could you ask for? The decor was beautiful and trendy. Our server, Sherri, was wonderful and friendly. The food, however, was just okay - it wasn't bad and it...More
