We went there this weekend, and were excited to come to this place for fine dining. We were accommodated even though we did not have a reservation. We were given time to leave within 2 hours though, as the restaurant apparently was busy. We availed the 3-course dinner for an additional of $8/person. I ordered the simple-faced fillet mignon, but... More

Bonjour madame, First of all thank you for your comment. The waitress did well me the message by assuring me that you do not want to change it. In the future, do not hesitate to ask that we change it to you, no matter circumstances, if I make an error, I assume it. More

Absolutely lovely. Please don't come here because I want it to remain one of my best kept secrets... But in all seriousness it is the best find for a semi casual cozy and delicious winter night. You will love it!

C'est la vie provided a different (to us) dining experience in a wonderful cozy atmosphere. We had the lava stone discovery platters which means you cook your own meal on a hot stone slab delivered to the table. The cuts of meat were very good, and the bacon wrapped green beans (along with regular side vegetables) was another different touch.... More

This is a very special place for family, and as we decided to come back for a ski trip, I just knew I had to make reservations again! Communication was great, I made reservations through email and heard back with confirmation soon after. The service at the restaurant was impeccable and very courteous. We had our two boys with us...

We had enjoyable Christmas dinner here. Three in our group of four did the hot stone cooking and greatly enjoyed it. The hot stone comes in a box with the meat or fish on it, along with a container of vegetables and 3 sauces. We had a flank steak, half rack of lamb and surf & turf (filet with shrimp).... More

Always have an impression that if you don't eat foie gras you haven't had the French cuisine! Really good foie gras. Generous amount. I think price is reasonable for a steak is it about 30-40$. They even have hot stone option! It is like cook it yourself! Absolutely love it! Next time in town I will definitely go back again.... More

Our family of five dined on hot stone plates and experienced a variety of meats. The hostess was very helpful with suggestions and the experience of cooking meat to your preferred taste was excellent. The presentation which included a mix of vegetables was also great. A fun experience for the whole family.

If you are looking for an enjoyable dinner with a homely feel, this is the place in Tremblant. Offering an option to cook your own meal, C'est la Vie is certainly a unique little place. We enjoyed the service and the atmosphere which is both comfortable and romantic. The salmon accompanied by pesto sauce was delicious and the potatoes memorable.... More
