    It was great food and great service! It was super quiet as we were the only table there for brunch. Perhaps due to the weather. Would be a great place for summer brunches though! Small, and limited tables so if it was a nice sunny day, I would book in advance just in case.

    The ambiance was great, the service was acceptable but the food was very mediocre . Everything tasted like it came from cans.

    Our waitress was lovely and provided great service, not too pushy and arriving just when needed. My partner had the bowl and I had the mushroom gnocchi. The bowl was so so and the gnocchi was nothing short of mushy with a lukewarm mushroom sauce. It had the consistency of papier mâché and the taste of day old mashed potatoes. We were both super hungry so we ate just the mains and left. There will be no going back to Back to Brooklyn, only because of the poor food.

    I love the ambiance and the service was EXCELLENT. Unfortunately, the restaurant let me book a reservation for 7pm, when the waiter normally leaves around 5pm because they close earlier on Sunday (we were not informed). So we felt a little bad about that, for the waiter but he was very sweet. Because they planned on closing sooner, we had very limited options to choose from, food wise. I chose the restaurant for its mussels and couln’t order them unfortunately. The burger I ordered was still very tasty and the drinks were delicious.

    Nice dinner, nice location, great service. A little pricey but it’s downtown Ottawa’s so expected. All in all a nice night out and would return.

    The service and cocktails were good but the food was terrible. We had the filet mignon and it had absolutely no seasoning, not even salt or pepper. Along with the steak was roasted potatoes and brussels sprouts which all came out in the same shad of brown/black. It was the most unappetizing looking plate I have ever seen. The only colour was the plate itself. We also had the mussels with fries, and the fries had the most flavour out of anything we ate. Extremely disappointing for the high costs.
