Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food, good music and fast service. We loved it. People in Magog should be filling up this resto instead of some of the more mainstream ones. The food was very fresh and tasty. There is also a terrace overlooking a marina for those who...like yo eat outside. Try it! You will not regretMore

I like this place. The place is cozy and pleasant, and the food is always good. I've been there a few times in the years since they opened, and the quality has been consistent.

Fun, noisy, brusque, the Taverne was very good We had flank steak, a bottle of French wine (Bordeaux) and dessert. We planned on ordering starters but forgot! I understand other customers negative comments about the chilliness of service but it’s an effin’ bistro. Like a...NY deli, it’s part of the charm. The steak came heavy with a bbq sauce which I thought was ok and my sister on the other hand loved. The crème brûlée and chocolate half cooked pudding were delicious. It was noisy crowded n fun.More

Glad we chose Taverne 1855 for a memorable dinner. We enjoyed the atmosphere, soundtrack and the menu was tempting on many fronts. We chose some regional dishes, the duck was amazing as was the tarte au sucre.

I was looking forward to eating here and anticipating a nice meal but it was not the best experience. I am certain the kitchen was swamped because the errors were not those that a restaurant of this caliber would make. Maybe I made a wrong...choice and should have asked the house speciality. In any case the carbonara was overcooked and looked more like Alfredo, usually a good carbonara consists of yolks only and is very rich tasting, with eth guanciale being crsipy ,not this one! The beef rib was flavorful yet very fatty, not what I expected . My wife had the risotto and it also came overcooked and heavy on the garlic. In reading the other comments I am sure it was just a bad day . For what is was itwas overpriced .but we will try again ,since there were signs of food know how!More

Charming and intimate small restaurant serving delectable French cuisine. The calamari was superb as was the duck breast. Wine selection was varied and appropriate for the cuisine. Will definitely return for other options.

Located overlooking the marina in downtown Magog which, at this writing is uindergoing a lot of construction, so you have to do some detours to get here. The food was very good and the service friendly and helpful, but a bit slow. My wofe and...I split a grilled Caesar sakad and both had the Linguine Carbonara, all of which was very good. The desserts looked great, but we didn't have time to enjoy one because our 2 hours of parking had already expired and we didn't want to get a ticket (see slow service...).More

Visited during the reconstruction of the main road and restaurant is fully accessible from the rear. Awesome service from Jinny with a wide array of menu choices. All our 4 meals were top quality that were thoroughly enjoyed. Bang bang shrimp as an app was...excellent and the smoked salmon gnocchis were a hit. Will definitely go back during our next visit.More

Stopped in for dinner while visiting Magog during the long week end. Service was friendly and welcoming. We ordered the fish n chips based on the recommendation of our waitress. The fish batter was rather tasteless and mushy not at all crispy . The chips...were fine. Also the abundance of fruit flies in the dinning room took away from our experience.More
