The food and service competed for the worst of the worst.

While being seated in a nearly empty dining area, we were given a choice of 3 tables. 2 tables were right next to the thoroughfare entering the kitchen/busing area. The remaining 1 was next to the cash with its obnoxious fluorescent light pointed into the eyes of diners. When asked if we could sit in another are that looked nicer, we were told the area was closed.

We had the french onion soup, smoked chicken risotto, and braised lamb shank. The french onion soup was palatable, but over sweetened and salted. Nothing special. The smoked chicken risotto was a cream based risotto with generic vegetables, and processed smoked chicken cubes. About what you'd expect from the frozen food section at the supermarket. The braised lamb made me feel bad for whatever animal it came from. Stringy, chewy, poorly seasoned. If we don't get food poisoning, it will be the only good thing to come of that dinner.

Not to mention, the total came to over $70 without tip and no booze.

Service was lackadaisical and impersonal. 3 waiters for 5 tables, who all seemed to be serving every table at random. Our questions and orders took longer than necessary because each one would come by then wander off. Another would then show up 5 minutes later and allow us to fill a different hole in the menu (specials/market items). Water glasses could not stay full. Food deliver was poorly timed/staged. Just did not do the meal any favors.

As guests of the hotel it was most convenient to eat here but as there are plenty of other options nearby we didn't have to. Breakfasts were works of art and very good value. The French onion soup was tres bon! We had three breakfasts and three dinners here and thoroughly enjoyed all meals.

Service was great, food was excellent and reasonably priced. Atmosphere is nice even though it is in the lobby of the hotel (not a lot of ambient noise goes through into the restaurant)

It was pouring rain when we arrived in Quebec City so we ate at Que Sera Sera at our hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott. What a pleasant surprise and it was not even recommended by the front desk staff! We had a gourmet meal that was absolutely delicious. I had the scallops and my husband had the seafood pasta. Both were delicious. The restaurant was short staffed and the waitress was doing everything she could to take care of everyone. It was very busy because it was a pre-cruise location. She had an excellent attitude and we just enjoyed a 2 hour dinner. Felt like Europe.

We ate breakfast in the restaurant and ordered from the menu. Again, it was delicious and far exceeded our expectations. I had the maple apple breakfast and it was absolutely yummy. I need that recipe.

Do not miss this experience when you are in Quebec City.
