    The experience and food; the presentation, the sessions of serving-is just amazing. Well done; just fabulous experience. Few comments to consider: I don't have the same ability to drink alcohol; I love the wine pairing but I can only take few sips-when we asked for splitting the full serving with my friend because I knew I could not finish and drink all the servings -and we indicated we wanted to divide in two, the server informed us we would have the share the same glass- that was quite disappointing. May be next time verify why one would explore such option-I took the half serving; as if I would drink from the same glass as my friend-a bit insulting-I still could not finish the last 3 glasses. As well we were charged 20-and my friend did 25% tip on the final bill which includes the tax ; for such high end restaurant-just include the tip within the pricing of your meal-this is such disappointing culture -as well tip should not include the tax-I do lots of travel and many places include the tip in the price- and I have no trouble with this-suggest to explore how high end restaurant do this. The helium ballon desert is a very fun ending-nothing compares. Thank you

    I have been raving about my experience all weekend. Atelier was easily the best dining experience I’ve had in my life. The food was incredible. The ‘waves’ of courses were cohesive, explorative, unique, and an absolute delight to enjoy. Foods I would typically avoid, I found myself loving- a true testament to the artistry and talent of Atelier. The service was prompt and educated on every plate and drink. The ambience was subtle and classy with an air of comfort. Atelier was worth every cent and once I recover financially, I’ll be sure to be back. :)

    Our 9th time! We celebrate our wedding anniversary every year with the team at Atelier and wouldn’t have it any other way. From the innovative cooking techniques the absolute world class presentation and knowledgeable, kind and down to earth staff, there is a reason they make the top 100 list year after year. Truly remarkable all the way around. Thank you Chef Marc for giving Ottawa more than we could have ever asked for.

    Food is exceptional. Every bite is interesting. Sommelier was great but if you order wine by the bottle, rather than buying in to the pairings, expect to pour your own. Table washing between each course is a little annoying although I get why they do it. Server was knowledgeable and very good with questions. Ambiance is a little lacking - room is a little sterile. Expensive (dinner for two with wine was over $1000) but worthwhile for the experience and high quality. Would I go again next week - maybe not but i will remember some of these bites for a long time.

    Gourmet food with excellent service. I went with my girlfriend for our anniversary and had a great time. The staff was able to accommodate our dietary restrictions.

    The experience at Atelier was fantastic. It's been on my list of go-to restaurants for a long time. Needless to say, it did not disappoint. The service was amazing. The server, bartender, and Sommelier for the night all had great energy and were very informative. For something like a 40-course menu, it can be intimidating, but they helped make it very approachable. I got the full wine pairing, and my guest had the placebo pairing. The pairings were all delicious and worked well with all the food. The food was 10/10. Every single one of the 40 plates was delicious and left an impression on us. I would go into the detail of each one, but this review would be massive and would ruin some of the fun of others' experience. All in all, this was a wonderful experience, and I would highly recommend Atelier to anyone who wants something new and exciting.

    Wow! A 40 course menu served in flights of 6 - what and amazing concept! We went for the premium wine pairing and that was also exceptional. The team were super professional and lovely. Highly recommend this place!

    Outstanding. Having had the privilege of visiting Michelin star restaurants around the world, I can authoritatively say that Atelier is right up there with the best. Amazing flavours and textures in whimsical plates. Service was outstanding. All for lower than Michelin star prices. A must visit.

    The quality of food is very questionable, they taste like they come straight from the supermarket package with very little care of quality. They are all cold with confusing curation and flavour profile. I don't think it's worth the price, given the fact that some of the best restaurants in Ottawa can offer a better dinner with half of the price.
