Need to Know … from food writer Allison Van Rassel: “It is at once one of the most creative and boreal culinary experiences I have had in Quebec City. Everything in the decor has been thought of: textures to marry the menu’s flavours, accessories that suggest a modernist cuisine and a magnificent selection of privately imported wines available by the glass. An environment in perfect accord with the senses that hereupon awaken to the near sight of Légende’s colourful, minutiae detail of their dishes.”

Caroline Marchand of Dcouvertculinaire says: ”I love that they only have Canadian products in the kitchen, so you never have something with citrus! It's a tasty take on Quebec cuisine, with the smoked meats and fish, and charcuterie. The chefs work with the producers around them and it shows in the freshness on the plate. The presentation is beautiful; the service is wow!”
