We were seated on the deck outside. The view of the river was quite nice. There was a mix up with our first course. It seems as though my wife's soup was delivered to another table. So we had to wait until her soup was ready. The soup was barely warm, nowhere near what French onion soup usually is.

We both had fish and chips. The fish was really good, but the chips were just so-so. The triple chocolate brownie was really good also.

This was our best meal while vacationing in Quebec City. I have never had such tender meaty flavorful ribs, the meat was tender and falling off the bones.
And the Poutine!!! Amazing, the fries were PERFECTLY cooked and crisp, no sogginess at all even with the gravy!!!

Worst meal ever EVER
We had reservations but were not given the nice empty table by the window over looking the river, instead my wife had a view of the cutlery near the kitchen. Half of the meals on the menu were not available, the wine we ordered from the menu was not available. This should have been our sign to leave but we stayed as we were hungry from walking all day.
I ordered the fillet minion and my wife ordered chicken supreme. The chicken was pressed chicken that was cold, on top of stale lumpy mashed potatoes and 2 slices of onion. One bite and my wife was no longer hungry. It can’t be that bad I said as I cut into my steak. It was also cold and the gravy had congealed.
We drank our wine 1/2 litre of local white, pushed our meals aside then paid cash $140 and walked out without eating anything.

We went down the road and purchased a pizza.
The pizza was really good!

Food is not bad but pricey for the quality. Poutine is good but at $17 is a bit too much. This is to be expected in a touristy area.

Friendly service, helpful that their English was pretty good as our French is not. They were tolerant of our rambunctious 1 year old. Food variety was pretty good and ribs were their specialty, but no one out of our 6 different meals was disappointed.

Honestly, there are many better options in both lower and upper town. We had the duck confit salad (mixed greens with a duck drumstick on the side, so it was DIY?) the flank steak (not seasoned, undercooked and with the sauce on the side in a plastic cup) a burger (was very good, but not a reason to choose a restaurant) and the fish and chips (again ok, but wasn’t here for a deep fried piece of fish). The plating on slate tiles made for messy meals, and incongruous to the plastic wrapped napkins and plastic containers of mayo. It feels like they’ve not decided on a format... more casual pub food vs foodie/fine dining. Anyway, with Cochin Dingue, La Lapin Sauté etc nearby not a restaurant I’d recommend.

Despite it being a wet and miserable night outside, inside was warm and inviting. Service wss prompt and the food, as always, delicious. I selected the Table d'hote for $35 but paid a little more for the red deer ribs and trio of creme bruleé. This gets you a 4 course meal and a coffee or pot of tea for about $50 including tax.

We had a wonderful late afternoon early evening at Cotes. the NewYear's Eve menu was great and the wait staff were attentive and fun. Our family with two teenagers enjoyed the food and ambience of the restaurant. The deer ribs were cooked perfectly and the wine list was great.

When we came at 18h00 on September 15th 2018, no one told us that there were a waiting time for the service.

We waited for 30 min after placing our order before having any news from the waiter regarding our entres. If not from the fact that we had to initiate the question, the waiter wouldn’t had asked the kitchen when would have our entres would been served. He them told us that there was a problem with the entres and that we had to change them. Since we had already been waited for more then 30 minutes since we ordered, we decided to cancel the entres and go directly to the main meal. Once served, the filet mignon we ordered was far (and I mean very far) from the cooking temperature we asked. The meat had to go back in the kitchen to be corrected. Once the main meal finish, we did not take any change and ask for the check.

I do understand that at this periode of the year the restaurant must have been low staff (with the beginning of the school and the fact that staff is hard to find these days), but communication between a restaurant and is customer is the key for success as far as I know (and I have work in restaurant when I was at school).

Not everything is the server’s fault, so that is why I did gave him a tip.

For please, tell you staff to have a better communication with the customer and most of all when they arrive. By not telling them that there is a waiting time, you a creating expectation and if you are not able to live to those expectations, you will be out of customers pretty soon.

Do what you want with my comments. It was the fist time at your restaurant and I at this point, I am not considering going back.

We sat outside. Though it had been raining earlier it was covered and it was night. Beautiful ambience with the River on one side and the Chateau Frontenac on the other side.

We visited on a very busy night during a festival event. As a result, service was a bit slow and it took quite a while to get our meal. One person in our party ordered a multi-course meal which may have caused some of the delay for the rest of our party; however, the wait for all of us to receive the main course was extensive. Most of the entrees were very good but the filet mignon ordered by one person in our party was not hot and they were disappointed. The BBQ ribs for 2 dinner was quite good; however, we were not impressed with the sauce on the duck legs that were served with that entree. All in all, I would return to this restaurant and would recommend it for a casual dining experience.

Good food - not great. Service was very good. Wonderful location and fun outdoor space. I ordered bison as an experiment and it was stronger tasting than I expected - kinda like liver. Wished I had gotten the pork ribs instead. Trout was also good. Sides were good.

Went on a Sunday evening - 6:30 PM. Very quiet. Cool and windy so we move over. Staff very helpful, but it turns out there was a big event the fly before so a lot of the dessert options were gone. Food OK - great onion soup though. Id give it another chance - location to die for

We were visiting Quebec City for the weekend and decided on Cotes a Cotes Resto-Grill for our Saturday dinner. Being a weekend in July, the town was crowded with tourists. When we arrived at our reservation time, I was a bit concerned our table may have been given away. However, after only a five minute wait, we were seated at a lovely open window table with a great view for people watching. The food was delightful - it just took quite some time to arrive. We were not offered any bread either, so had to patiently wait for our appetizers to arrive. My dinner companion and I didn't mind the long wait, as we had lots to watch from our window!
We were seated inside, but there is a lovely outdoor patio area that was filled with guests and looked like it would be fun to be seated there as well.

I don’t want to be one of those long reviews that complains incessantly, so it’s short and sweet. We ordered 1 appetizer and a regular meal and we waited 1 hour for the appetizer after
We ordered, and 45 minutes after that for the main course. 2.5 hours in total and the food mediocre. Lots of unrealized

I made this reservation on Open Table and after driving 45 minutes from Beaupre arrived at the restaurant to be told the kitchen closed early because they had a "slow night". Staff then told me that they would not reopen until Wed 21 March 2018 because business had been slow.

Great location, interesting atmosphere, we had a few issues (one meal was sub-standard especially as compared to the identical meal one other in our party ordered) as soon as we addressed it the server brought the owner over and they made it right with a replacement that was an upgrade. Very interesting local cuisine, excellent presentation, accommodating to one in our party with dietary restrictions.
