    Staff goes above and beyond to make you feel special. 44 courses really are an experience. If you want a true white-glove experience in Ottawa, this is the place. There could be a bit more sound deadening in the upper level. Voices really get amplified by the smooth walls in that tight space.

    One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Knowledgeable and un-rushed service. Had the mid-level wine pairing which was excellent. I see no need to go for the more expensive option. Presentation was beautiful and fun in several cases. Every bite was delicious. I was full but not overstuffed by the end.

    One of the best restaurants in Canada, Atelier exceeds expectations! Each dish is a work of art and highly innovative with 45 courses with wine, cocktail pairing or non alcoholic drinks available. Salute to our server and the sommelier who were very knowledgeable and explained each dish and drink to us. Highly recommended!

    Wow, once-in-a-lifetime experience!! Expensive but for a foodie, it's a must! The only negative was that at the end, it was super hot in there. An open window would've helped. Exquisite meal experience with 44 course - no 45 for me since it was my b-day and they brought an extra bite of cake.

    Too much noise on the second floor linked to reverberation, preparation of the drinks at the bar, and music. So we needed attention to understand the speech from service wearing a mask. Otherwise everything was perfect and a great gastronomic experience. Thanks!

    Absolutely outstanding food, presentation, service, cocktails, everything. 44 courses were phenomenal but I’d also gladly pay the same price for only 20-30 courses. The last bit was hard to fully appreciate because of how stuffed I was. But nonetheless, this has been the best food I’ve ever tasted in my life. Well done!

    Amazing interactive experience! You really get to learn about each dish, and the portions are perfect, at the end of the meal you are full. The staff was super attentive with dietary restrictions with our party and when there were some concerns that came up during the meal the manager came to ensure that everything was ok and didn’t require additional changes. Everything was beautifully plated. Would 100% recommend trying Atelier at least once if your lifetime! :)

    Fantastic Place for a food lover - Pushes you to try new things. Food was incredible - even if not every item was a hit for your particular taste buds (that's the whole point of trying new things!) Wait staff was incredible! Very attentive but also allowed you to enjoy your time without feeling like they were right there at all times. The wait staff did an incredible job of food descriptions, answering questions, etc and made the experience that much better. This is a high end experience so prepare to spend but definitely worth it for the culinary art you get to enjoy.

    Overall good. Out of the 44 dishes. Only half was amazing the other ones were mediocre. For the price I have had better food, experience, ambiance and service for a third of the price. I feel like I was paying for the hype of the concept. Also our waiter did not give us half the attention and details then the waitress next to us. Also it was clear that he provided better attention to more other patrons. Perhaps we were not so pretentious

    I have been wanting to eat here for years and could never make the timing work. I was very impressed and the evening was loads of fun, great ambiance and the food was fantastic! With 44 courses, there were some that a few liked better than others obviously, but it was an absolute delight that was orchestrated in a playful and thoughtful fashion. It was an amazing experience that the chef has put together like a complex show that was paired wonderfully by wines and cocktails. I really enjoyed every dish, but loved the mushroom, short rib, pea, tomato, Greek salad and the mango desert. It isn’t fair really to break it down as I liked the flow and dishes working off each other as a real part of the experience. I think the staff, the chef and servers have put together something truly special and I would recommend it without hesitation. The music was wonderful, decor really cool. It is pricy, but very much worth it for an incredible evening.

    I can't think of anyone other than Marc Lepine who would even consider introducing a 44-course blind-tasting menu. And I can't imagine anyone other than Marc Lepine who could pull it off with such flair. The food was magnificent, Chef's love of puns evident, the service was great. An absolutely wonderful evening that I will want to repeat with other friends in future. Hint: Go hungry. And the four-hour estimate assumes you eat a lot faster than I do. But the time passed quickly, and we left the restaurant very, very happy. Thank you, Chef Marc, for another amazing dining adventure.

    Cons: Nothing stood out flavour-wise. The flights seemed disjointed and random. Temperatures and textures seemed off, like they had been sitting and waiting to be served: skins and crusts on some of the gels and creams, some of the foams were flat and hot protein dishes were barely warm. Crumbs and spills on table were left for entire meal. The QR codes felt gimmicky and didn’t add anything to experience. Pros: Sommelier was energetic and friendly. Wine pairing worked well. There was a really obnoxious and loud 3-top table that arrived after most were seated, but finished first. Going to attribute this to restaurant staff wanted to get them out as quickly as possible. If so, it was appreciated. Overall: Would not recommend. Was disappointing, especially compared to past experiences at the restaurant

    Atelier is a true culinary experience. The creativity and uniqueness is inspiring. Each “wave” is an adventure. Everything was perfect. Delicious and unique food that delighted our senses (taste, smell and sight). Attentive and friendly service. Knowledgeable and engaging sommelier. Awesome tunes and ambiance. Everyone needs to experience Atelier for themselves.
