This is always a lovely dining experience. Not only is the food exquisite in it's preparation, presentation and taste, but the service is impeccable. I can't say enough about how much my wife Susie and I look forward to coming here at least once a year. It is the highlight of our visit to the area. We love Jocelyn, Sebastian and Danielle and all of the other staff who do such a wonderful job of making each person feel special.

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

Nous y sommes allés pour notre anniversaire de mariage! Le service fut impeccable, les délicates attentions du personnel ont su rendre le tout inoubliable! Une sommelière a soigneusement pris le temps de nous aider à sélectionner une bouteille de vin selon nos goûts, les explications qui accompagnaient la venue de chacun des plats étaient à point! Il faut l’essayer au moins une fois dans une vie! C’était merveilleux!

Bonjour,

Malheureusement, mes amis, mon conjoint et moi-même avons trouvé cette année notre expérience au Baccara plus que décevante et c'est déplorable!

Voici quelques commentaires
La cuisine
La présentation des plats est toujours aussi belle et attrayante pour les yeux!
Les plats cuisinés: le tartare de bison était trop «mouillé», trop juteux ... mon amie et moi-même avons préféré, et de loin, celui qui a été servi l'an passé. Mon assiette principale, soit celle du saumon et pétoncle était acceptable mais sans plus: le saumon n'était pas moelleux et il était tiède, quant au pétoncle, il était savoureux.
Le menu dégustation - 5 services: le descriptif concernant le plat «filet et bouts de côtes de boeuf cuits 85 heures en croûte ...» a énormément intrigué mon conjoint. Malheureusement, il a été très déçu de la tendreté du filet.
Le menu dégustation - 7 services: j'ai goûté au granité et j'ai été très déçue. Sa consistance était inadéquate (trop de cristaux de glace) et il était peu goûteux.
Un des commentaires émis par les 2 convives concernant le menu dégustation a été «plus jamais»!

Le service
Nous avons tous été très déçus. 4 heures se sont écoulées entre l'entrée et le dessert. D'ailleurs, un commentaire et une suggestion ont été faits au responsable du Baccara.
2 personnes sur 4 ont choisi le menu dégustation (un 5 et un 7 services). Les 2 autres personnes ont choisi une entrée et un plat principal et «c'est là que le bât blesse»: le temps d'attente avant que leur plat principal soit servi a été pénible voire très désagréable.
Quant aux serveurs, ils affichaient tous un sourire et ils ont tous été polis. Les points faibles: nous avons du demander à 4 reprises des glaçons pour nos verres d'eau et j'ai du verser moi-même le reste du vin du carafon dans mon verre. Le plus décevant a été un des serveurs qui décrivait le plat principal de façon très «machinale» avec peu d'intérêt. Je déplore cette façon de faire car elle ne rend pas HOMMAGE aux chefs!

Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre expérience. Tout était bon, très bon service. Le serveur a même répondu à nos petites demandes spéciales (frites). Cependant, nous aurions apprécié avoir du pain à l'ail. Le serveur a répondu que ce n'était pas au menu, que les cuisines n'ont pas assez de fourneaux pour ça, etc. Pourtant, le pain à l'ail n'est pas au menu de l'Arôme et ils en font quand même. Au pire, le serveur aurait pu aller en chercher au Banco... mais bon. C'est une petite déception qui reste...

The food was spectacular, but the service was subpar. We thoroughly enjoyed the 5-course tasting menu, which was a testament to the culinary innovation and skill of the chef. The wine pairing was phenomenal. The service, however, was rude. Our dining experience was diminished by the behaviour of the waiter, who was loudly socializing with a nearby table while largely ignoring our table. For a $600+ dining experience, I would expect more attentive and considerate behaviour from the staff. That being said - the food itself was one of the most memorable meals I've had, despite being served in a rote and distracted way by seemingly indifferent staff.

Dinner at Baccara was one of the finest experiences we've ever had. The staff was very attentive , knowledgeable, courteous & friendly. The food was delicious & presented in creative ways. To our delight, a sugar free dessert was available since my husband is diabetic. The atmosphere was special as well. At the conclusion of our meal, we were able to view the Fireworks across the Ottawa River. We will long remember this unique dinner.

Notre visite au Baccara termine une grande tournée de plusieurs grands restaurants, et croyez moi, celui ci est en haut de la liste quand on parle d'expérience complète, incluant services, ambiance, situation et gastronomie. Rien à envier au grand étoilés Michelins, Le Baccara mérite le détour. Nous avions pris le repas 7 services et tout était impeccable. Merci!

The food was quite good as usual but we both felt that there is an attempt to get a bit "cute". For example, the pan seared fois gras was served on asparagus whereas in the past there is some small bread or similar food on the plate. We were not disappointed but a bit of a feeling of not getting the value that we have gotten used to in the past.

We were served by many different staff members, however, our young main server who took our order and removed our plates as well as the water server were outstanding - very polite, knowledgeable, and quick to serve. They both had a fun yet professional energy that added to the overall experience. We had the 7 course tasting menu which was outstanding quality, presentation, and flavour.

Great renovations; beautiful decor, tables amply set apart allowing for quiet dinner conversation. Servers were great.

Only complaint was that my steak ordered medium rare was true medium. My wife's hot lobster appetizer was excellent but her Halibut entree was a little dry.

This dining experience, particularly in Ottawa area, [the culinary hell-hole of Canada] is always enjoyable regardless of the occasional kitchen slipup.
