Concierge.com's insider take:
This is the Auberge Saint-Antoine's Relais & Châteaux restaurant, and it lives up to great expectations. The menu is a carefully curated list of French and Québecois dishes with a good sampling of traditional stalwarts, like a foie gras appetizer and an entrée of pan-roasted venison soaked in truffle sauce. Chef François Blais also has a way with lighter dishes: Look for marinated sea scallops on the half shell, a lobster and lentil terrine, and wild sea bass with pine nuts and olive oil. Though it's located in a former warehouse, the space feels intimate, with naturally burnished wood beams and columns glowing under the flicker of the glass-encased fireplace. Dinner runs around $100 per person; for a less expensive option, sit at the small bar and order the diverse local cheese plate.
Breakfast Monday through Friday 6:30 to 10:30 am, Saturday and Sunday 7 to 11 am. Lunch Monday to Friday only, 11:30 am to 2 pm. Dinner daily 6 to 10 pm.
