La nasique le soir du 18 août 2019 était exaspérante ! Le même morceau n’a pas arrêté de se répéter ... ne convenait absolument pas à un repas gastronomique.

Our Le Baccara experience was amazing! There were four of us in our group and none of us had been to Le Baccara before, we were all very impressed. Our server was very friendly, very knowledgeable and provided exceptional service. There were several other dining room attendants who were also very pleasant, and very friendly. The warmth and friendliness of the floor staff is an area where Le Baccara should be very proud of themselves, it is very common in restaurants of this calibre to have floor staff who tend to be snooty and/or pompous. So, to experience the type of service we did was really really wonderful and contributed to an amazing experience. The food too, was fantastic. The menu is creative, not exceptionally creative, but creative enough, the strength of the kitchen though is the immaculate execution of the dishes. This is not a comment relating to the presentation of the dishes, it is a comment on the culinary execution of the food. Each of the dishes was perfectly prepared, well seasoned, well garnished and served at the appropriate temperature. Portion sizes for all but one of the dishes was well planned, the exception may have been the halibut entree, which was a bit too modest. Timing of the service was also quite good, we felt that we were never rushed, but also that we did not wait unreasonably between courses. Overall, an excellent experience, bravo!

Chaque repas est une découverte

D’une visite à l’autre, les mêmes produits sont déclinés différemment.

De fois en fois, c’est une belle et bonne surprise.

Toujours un parcours parfait

The experience is well worth it in my opinion. the food was excellent and the ambiance was good too. i found the staff not overly friendly other than 2 of the people who actually spoke to us. As far as cost, there was nothing i had here that i couldn't have made at home for 1/4 of the price. of course the convenience of not having to make it and clean up after is nice but in my opinion the restaurant is over priced but delicious.

Perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion with a special someone. Excellent ambiance, view of the Ottawa river, excellent food and service. It is relatively pricey for similar dining experiences such as Les Fougeres.

My wife and I celebrated our 43 wedding anniversary at Le Baccara this week. We have been there several times for this occasion and always a delight . My wife has suffered a stroke and is restricted to a wheel chair and our waiter Juliene was extremely sensitive to her disability . Thank you!! Food was as good as it gets!!

Oui, c'est un peu cher, mais les plats sont tellement bien apprêtés.

Over the last five years, we have enjoyed dining at Le Baccara on many occasions. As a culinary experience, it has always been superb.

Last night, however, our experience was different. Our appetizers and dinner were cooked and presented immaculately, but our service from Serge was a bit off.

In our previous visits, we always felt welcome and comfortable once we sat at our table. We were engaged in discussion about our visit, we bantered about wine and pairings, and there always seemed to be a rapport-- both in a friendly and professional manner. We never felt rushed, and always left with the shared sentiment that we truly enjoyed our stay in your restaurant in every regard.

While Serge certainly was knowledgeable, and was able to execute flawless mechanics of service, both my partner and I felt like he didn't enjoy our presence, and was waiting for service to end so we would leave. I brought it up first, and my feelings were confirmed that my partner felt the same way.

In addition, towards the end of service, Serge's attitude seemed to be even more evident. I had gotten up for a minute and had returned to our table. Serge was at the table, there was no longer any eye contact or greeting, and when I was getting seated he sharply pushed my chair into my knees so that I prematurely sat down. It was rude, and underscored the feelings that he was tolerating us, and he wanted us to move along as soon as possible.

Normally when we leave Le Baccara, our conversation is full of praise for the staff and the amazing food, while we also talk about being excited for our next visit. Not last night. While the food was as amazing as every previous visit, the attitude we got from Serge spoiled the rest. It dominated our conversation for the entire drive back to our house.

The service was good. We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary which the host knew. We thought at dessert time they would of recognize the occasion but they didn’t. My husband and I were a little disappointed. The restaurant did give us a beautiful table. We had the 7 course surprise menu. It was good. The Salmon Tartare was excellent as well as the Scallop dish.

Sylvain and all the staff so professional and kind.
The food, such as the seared foie gras and bison tartare, the best we have ever had (and we are foodies who travel all over the world).
The decor and view spectacular.
And this is everytime we go there. Never anything less then perfect!
Bravo!

The food was the worst I’ve ever had. Reheated food with a lot of sauce for camouflage. I eat regularly with my 99 year old mother. We always order the lobster and scallops. The food was horrible. Will have to rethink returning to this restaurant.
