We had never been to Quebec City and did not know what to expect in the way of fine dining. We were not just pleasantly surprised, we were bowled over! Restaurant L'Initiale is a marvel. The dining room is tastefully understated. Lead by the extremely knowledgeable and personable co-owner Rolande Leclerc, the staff provided friendly, well-trained, and knowledgeable service. And the food - c'est magnifique! Chef Yvan Lebrun's tasting menu, created from local products and artisans, was a parade of delights. And thanks to Isabelle, the sommelier, for her well-thought out pairings and her explanations of each wine. This was a night to remember in a vacation to remember. Should we be fortunate enough to return to Quebec, Restaurant L'Initiale will be our first stop.
