    I’ve been to Atari during their normal business and it was great (the nachos were the best in Ottawa) but the brunch pop up they hosted was chaotic. From making everyone wait outside in the cold for 20 minutes after calling to remind us to be on time for our seating, to spaghetti on a brunch menu, to no milk for coffee, to super watery mimosas, to a senior staff (the manager I assume?) being super weird with customer service and telling us we were wrong after asking our opinion, then a guy (I’m assuming the owner?) coming over to fix it, then the table behind us having the exact same encounter. The table beside us sat there for 20 minutes without being seen so got up and left (I felt bad they had a gift bag with them so clearly some sort of celebration). Overall it seems like someone thought, we’re a bar how hard could be to host a brunch?, to which the answer apparently is, harder that you thought. We weren’t here for anything special so it was mostly just entertaining!

    Nye dinner was TERRIBLE. Set a three course menu for the evening - it took over three hours. Plus every item was cold or overcooked. Would not recommend to anyone, terrible experience.

    This review may be inaccurate since it was December 31 evening with special fixed menu. Food was very good, the cocktails very interesting. I assume the kitchen got overwhelmed for new years eve, since we arrived among the first, first two curses arrived very quickly, but our third curse took very long to arrive. At thr end, we didn't even had time to ask for coffee or dessert (not sure if there was any available for that special day) Overall I liked the place and the food, I should probably try it on a regular day to make a fair comment.

    The New Years dinner was tasty, I liked the menu, except for the steak that was not cooked fresh. Cocktails are nice but a bit too expensive.

    L’ambiance était bonne, la nourriture bonne, le lieu très très beau et comfortable mais!! En tant que amoureuse de la viande, c’est dommage qu’il ait pas un large choix de steak et surtout qu’on soit obligé de prendre une petite portion de steak qu’ils facturent à 61$ à peu près et c un plat pour deux.. et si je viens seule?? Et si la personne avec qui je suis ne veut pas forcément manger du steak? À revoir si possible mais l’ensemble le cadre est intéressant

    They did an incredible job updating the space! It's intimate and luxe, with good music and cool vibes. The service was great, the food was delicious, and the cocktail selection is fantastic. For these aspects, I would def recommend and give 5 🌟! But, if i could offer a suggestion to the owners, please stop the burning of incense. It made the space smoky (which I guess is meant to add to the ambiance), but the smell was really overwhelming after a while and the smoke is irritating if you have allergies or sensitive eyes. It was also quite cold, but this may have been a combination of being seated near the door and time of year when it's difficult to adjust to the changing temps. But we did feel cool air from the vents above us.

    Everything was great. We went for a bachelorette dinner and Atari Garden was perfect for this. I really liked the atmosphere of the restaurant - the decorations are very pretty with the greenery and lighting. Our group really enjoyed all of the food and drinks (yum!). Our server was also fantastic. Definitely recommended!

    Food and service was great! Portions were on smaller side for price and I was shocked to pay $12.50 for a Shirley temple. It cost more than my glass of wine! Otherwise a lovely spot.

    Rooftop was very cool, service was a bit spotty (I had a trainee who was trying VERY hard and was very sweet!). Food was *excellent*. I would go back. Watermelon salad makes a perfect end to a meal.

    The portions vs the price want worth it. Recommendations felt more like a business gimmick to have customers pay more which I would of felt fine with it if only the portions were worth it. It was embarrassing to share such small quantity of food let alone the taste wasnt good. The wings were medicore, felt like saracha sauce with sour cream. The fries seems freezer bought from no name brand and lacked flavor. The only good plate was the salad. My friend and I don't recommend coming here for the food but for socialize drinking late at night would be nice at the rooftop. The decor was fabulous.
