Amazing place, staff are amazing. Food is high quality, a tad expensive but, definitely a great experience overall.
My wife and I had a great time enjoying the raw food and fresh ingredients. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend!
Great atmosphere, fantastic drinks and even better food! Thanks for the great service.
Excellent experience. Great food and service. Good vibe for friends and large groups. The plates came out a little too quickly and we felt a bit rushed, but overall would highly recommend
I will definitely be back. What a beautiful place and delicious food. The staff are top notch.
Went with my partner. Had a lovely evening with amazing cocktails & the meal was fantastic. Highly recommend for a delicious meal and a lovely evening. Very safe dining environment.
Food was excellent, first experience there for me but not the last!
A must try!
Amazing food and great service
Went to Fauna for my husband's birthday and the meal was wonderful. All the food was delicious and extremely well presented. We enjoyed cocktails and few glasses of wine. I appreciated the wine list being more focused and our waitress knowing exactly what to suggest with the dishes we were having. The only thing that took away from the meal was the level of noise. Due to the large open space we found ourselves having to shout at times to hear one another even though the restaurant wasn't at full capacity (Covid). Other than that it's a lovely space and would go again.
The server was great, drinks and wine options were very good and they very easily adapted to a dietary issue. Honestly the swiftest, substitution I’ve ever experienced, I would go back just for that. It’s a rarity.
Food was excellent and beautifully presented.
Our host was checking on us to me make sure we're enjoying everything.
We sat at a table by the door at first which did not make for a good ambiance, with the coming and going of people... And the cold air coming in.
The staff was kind enough to move us to another table, which was more comfortable. The food was very good, the service very attentive. We will be going there again!
Overpriced for the quality and quantity of food. Nothing spectacular.
Food was inspiring
Wait staff was engaging, informed and genuine in her appreciation for the chef and food -
A interesting wine list and excellent food, with great, relaxed service
Amazing food and staff with just enough background noise to keep your conversation intimate.
We loved the food and service. What is special about the service is that one’s table isn’t assigned to a single servers. Anyone passing by the table will assist the diner. Makes for a really pleasant experience. Only drawback for us - really noisy at peak hours.
Amazing good, yummy cocktails. Definitely recommend!
The food was excellent, as well as the service.
Food and service was exceptional!
We were definitely the loudest in there (so sorry about that). We had a blast! The food was great, wine was amazing and our server was the best!
This was a really lovely experience. The cocktails and the food were uniquely original and at the same time absolutely delicious. Presented beautifully on gorgeous ceramics. This special farm to table restaurant has superior service and aesthetic. Would definitely go back again.
We enjoyed the entire experience. One of our party has severe allerlgies. The attention by the wait staff and kitchen and the flexibility in menu to ensure she was taken care of was exceptional. As with every visit to your restaurant, the service and food was great.
The atmosphere was both cozy & lively without being too loud to hear the person across the table. The cocktails were great, cleanly presented & not overwhelming with sugar. The arctic char was plated elegantly & all the elements of the dish played into one another to create a perfectly balanced meal. Well done all around
Great vibe - food and service was top notch. Looking forward to our next time.
Excellent food. Had the osso bucco. Superb. Server was great. One of the best restos in Ottawa.
Fauna was definitely a happening place. it was vibrant, the service was excellent even though it was very busy. the food was very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and I will be going back again .
Absolutely incredible meal and service. We tried lots of dishes and they were all outstanding. Service and atmosphere also top notch. Highly recommend
Excellent food. Fresh ingredients. Dishes are plated beautifully. I always look forward to see what is new on the menu!
Everything was great except the music was way too loud, we ended up having to shout and we were at the bar. I don't think it needed to be such high volume.
Great hosts very welcoming and attentive to details. We’re helpful even in helping find parking.
The food was top notch and definitely worth the visit. The tastes were elevated, complex and layered yet simple, not overdone or presumptuous. The simple sounding « carrots » starter was a solid ten and left you wanting for more with the smoked lebneh and sweetness of the purée. The beetroot tartare was on point and meaty. The ribeye for two is worth the try even for serious meat lovers, its sides were in perfect harmony (Kale, mushrooms and mashed potatoes were very, very solid on their own).
Dessert choice was very limited to crème brûlée and chocolate eclair but you will know why when you try them both, as they were excellent. Lastly wine list is generous with good enough choices, maybe a little more boldness would have been appreciated but it was just fine and offered some good options that were very much appreciated to accompany our meal.
Would I recommend? 100%. Enjoy this little Ottawa gem.
Lovely drinks, lovely service. Big shoutout to the beautiful hostess xoxo
Very poor offering for vegan food. Otherwise the restaurant is very nice.
We really enjoyed the food and the service. Menu was kinda small but what was available was on pointe. The pork belly was fantastic and the duck was amazing!
Great food, friendly knowledgeable staff. A great night out!
Excellent. Have been there a few times. Waitress new from a month, was extremely pleasant to deal with. Thank you
Excellent food, we loved everything we ordered, from starters to dessert. Expensive? Yes, very, but worth it if you’re looking for exciting food that you’ll never be able to make yourself at home ;)
Fauna never disappoints! The food was spectacular!
The experience was great and the service was excellent!
Fauna is always solid. Delicious innovative menu that changes all the time. Plus they know how to make a killer bourbon sour
