Fodor's Review

A contemporary setting and gracious service place L'Initiale in the upper echelon of restaurants in this city, in cost as well as quality. Widely spaced tables favor intimate dining, and the warm brown-and-cream interior is cozy. But don't rush to your table. Begin your night in the lounge, where you can peruse the menu at your leisure. Chef Yvan Lebrun, considered unanimously as one of the top chefs in Québec, demonstrates remarkable precision and balance in all his dishes. The constantly changing menu follows the whims of the chef and the season. Try the foie gras or the lamb. There's also a C$129 eight-course tasting menu. For dessert, many small treats are arranged attractively on a single plate. After dinner, you can return to the lounge for your coffee.
