1. La salade était magnifiquement présentée; un délice pour les yeux et pour les papilles.
2. Mon invitée a dû retourner son plat principal : agneau trop cuit car elle l'avait demandé saignant.
3. Mon plat principal (menu 3 services), porcelet, était fade et tiède.
4. Le dessert (menu 3 services) était décevant.
5. Le café était excellent.
6. Le service était compétent et attentionné, tel qu'attendu dans ce type de restaurant.

Somme toute, le repas ne valait sûrement pas les 200$ + dépensés, incluant un verre de vin et une bière sans alcool.

Les portions des entrées de foie gras (poêlé et froid) étaient définitivement trop petites. Il faut ajouter du foie gras.
Les desserts ne correspondent pas à la description faite sur le menu.
Le service est exceptionnel y compris celui de la sommelière!
Merci.

Our experience was, unfortunately, not as good as past occasions. Le Baccara may be on its way to loosing one of its diamonds. Menu is apparently "revisited" from dishes that made the restaurant's name. It was not that inspiring. Service, while friendly and professional (long time personnel) was not as attentive as it had been in the past. Washrooms needed attention. An ongoing labour conflict where the kitchen personnel wore construction vests as a sign of protest, did not create a high level of confidence.... Finally, the minimal remaining dress code is not enforced. When we called to enquire, the hostess mentioned that head gear (caps) were not permitted. Yet, they were proudly wore by guests besides us. Baseball caps have no room in any restaurant in my opinion. To see them at Le Baccara?????

Have a birthday dinner for my wife at Le Baccara last Sunday with our family. The service was top notch with nice atmosphere; also our table overlooked the Ottawa river and the open kitchen. The food was well prepared with good taste. Although it was a bit pricey but money well spent for the experience.

We were there on Saturday night for dinner. The wine recommendation was superb. We ended up with two bottles. From the service, friendly and engaging to the amuse bouche and all the way through to the dessert we felt welcomed, appreciated and satisfied with every course matching the previous one. My wife raved about the veal and lobster. Quite generous portion given the french style cuisine. I had haddock and shrimps which was very well presented and seared just enough to give the fish a slightly crisp outer sides. Well worth going here, although not for the person who has a hard time pulling out their wallet.

This restaurant used to be much better. Now it seems like the chef's menu is priced high but the courses are cheap. Less value than expected when spending $1000 for 4 people.

Beautiful spot next to a window. Temperature was quite cool until they turned the heat on. There was a dinner table of 8-10 regulars who were there to party and drink, which ruined the romantic experience. We were disappointed that the restaurant placed us near them.

My wife lost her father to cancer this year. I really wanted to do something special for her. Our experience at your restaurant exceeding all expectations. The attention to every detail was truly outstanding and the food was without question one of the best meals we have ever had. I haven’t see her this happy in months. She actually said she felt like Queen for a night :) Thank you to the staff and chefs for such true passion for what you do. Glenn & Margot Menard

Nous étions 2 personnes avec des spécificités d'alimentation (allergie et diabète). Nous avions pleinement confiance puisque le serveur a tout de suite prise en note nous référant ainsi les meilleures alternatives dans notre menu. Chaque assiette était identifiée ppur nos besoins. De plus, le menu surprise rempli son mandat. Bravo!

Le Baccara never disappoints. We had the Menu Degustation (tasting menu) with the selection of premium wines. Both food and wine were beyond exceptional. It may be considered expensive, however for a special occasion it is well worth it.

Took a 5 course meal. Was asked what I don't like. Enumerated 3 things. 1 of those things was in 3 of the 5 meals. That situation left me disapointed considering the pricepoint and renoun of the place.

Despite that the food was good, would probably have been great if they had chose other meals on the menu to serve me (which there were). The desert was lacking (the donut was dry, had a sauce with 1 ingredient I asked not to have and the ice-cream was flavorless despite being tagged as maple).

Service was impeccable. Vincent, Jocelyn and Danielle were great. Reception was great overall.

As always, our experience at Le Bacara was exceptional in all respects. With the consummate assistance of Jocelyn, our server, we were guided through a wonderful tasting menu. The wine matching has always been inspiring on our visits but this night they were especially good. Not a single element to be faulted in any respect — how often can you say that? And, of course, congratulations on the beautiful new decor!

Le Bacara remains, in our view, the best restaurant in the region by a clear margin.

I reserved at the Baccara for my husband's birthday and we loved it. The overall experience was perfect. I really loved the fact that all the staff member were very sensitive to our needs. Everyone said Hi when we arrived and said bye when we left. they stop what they were doing and noticed us, I was very impress. It is sad that the price of meal is very costly because we would definitely go more often. Hopefully we will be able to go back for our 1 year wedding anniversary.
Thanks,
