    Beautiful view, amazing night. Reserved seats outside and it was nice to sit side by side drinking prosecco while the sun set. Service was friendly and she returned at exactly the right times. Delightful

    Server was friendly, helpful and attentive. Food wasn’t great, had to peel large shrimp by hand, oysters hadn’t been cut from the shell, beef tartare seemed to have a vegetable in it. Cocktails were very nice.

    Beautiful venue. Despite stating on their web site that there is a DJ on weekends, there are none. When we asked they told us they did not have one. Service was extremely slow and they got our drink order wrong twice. Prices are really expensive for what you get.

    Very limited seating on the terrace. Impossible to take a drink outside if you have a table inside. Prices are high for the quality of the food, but the view is great. Service is ok.

    The view is beautiful, but that's about it. The seafood tower for $200 was NOT worth it; it came with mussels in a can and barely enough food for 4. The service was just okay, the lights were SUPER bright at 900pm... it just wasn't worth the cost. Might be a nice place for a cocktail and a picture, if you want to spend $17-$20/drink.

    It had a beautiful view, and the drinks were fantastic. I was surprised how low and uncomfortable the tables and chairs/booths were. I’m 6 foot 1 and it was torture having no leg room under the table, hunched over. Also despite the place being empty, we were seated beside a couple of strangers. It’s almost like we were touching and you feel uncomfortable talking. Then they constantly started trying to talk to us/interrupting our conversation. This was supposed to be a birthday cocktail evening for just myself and my partner. And we couldn’t really enjoy it

    Amazing view Amazing service (Marlena you MADE our night) I'll be honest and say that i wish the menu offered more BUT no worries, their Short Rib in wine sauce is OMG and kind of makes up for it. Combine that with the Scorpion and Songbird drink and VOILA AMAZING night wile watching the sunset and seeing the byward market slowly go from daytime to nightlife

    View is unparalleled in Ottawa. Cocktails were good but expensive. Charcuterie was not as good as I recall - expensive for two types of meat and 3 very small slivers of cheese. They closed early for a Friday - cleaning up at 11:30pm.

    The note is given for the view. It is splendid. You have to see it ! For the bar and the restaurant, there is no effort given on the cocktails'presentation, on plates's content and on the service. My reservation's comments were not even realized.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary & received complimentary champagne. Great ambiance -- the chocolate cake was the best chocolate cake we ever had! It was truly scrumptuous. I'm a girl that likes fruity cocktails, and there wasn't much of that on the menu, but that's okay. Perfect spot to watch fireworks as well - unexpected surprise that made our night all the much special. Thank you to the lovely waiter who served us and was such a sweetheart.

    Reserved table to enjoy watching the firework festival, I was extremely disappointed with the amount of random people standing and blocking my view. This would not be an issue however these individuals did not make any form of beverage or food purchases. I did not find this fair to the wait staff or those paying customers. Perhaps next year limit outdoor access to paying customers only.

    For a place that is supposed to be a higher-end place, I wasn't impressed. It was loud, we didn't originally get the table we were promised in our reservation, and my wife and I felt very rushed when all we wanted to do was relax and celebrate our anniversary. Quite disappointing because the place has a million-dollar view.

    We were staying at the hotel and decided it would be nice to have drink with a view. We were told that we could not go outside and the tables inside were so close to one another there was no way to social distancing? I couldn’t hear what my daughter was saying and when saw the cost for a drink we decided to leave. The cheapest drink was $18 for half a glass of wine 🤦🏼‍♀️and there was nothing food wise that resembled or stated gluten free.

    Honestly, the view was the only good thing about this venue. We arrived for our reservation and, yes we were early. After 15-20 minutes of us sitting there, our waiter never showed up. I flagged down a hostess and asked if we could order, she was surprised our waiter didn't come to see us but took our order. Another 15 minutes goes by and no drinks, no sign of anyone, I asked the hostess again if our drinks were coming and she said "There's only one bartender tonight" (for a Saturday night). So I asked if our drinks were made and if not, we would be leaving. I've worked in customer service for 15 years and restaurant service/bartending for over 5, it was a complete disappointment. I asked to speak with a manager and the hostess said it was the bartender but "you did show up 20 minutes early for your reservation". She asked if we still wanted to speak with him. He's slammed with orders and I've been in that position before so I obviously didn't want to disturb. This is supposed to be a high end restaurant/lounge. Perhaps they need to invest in customer service and more employees to cater to their patrons. And if it were such an issue to be there earlier, why not tell us that they are busy but we can sit and enjoy the view in the meantime? Transparency is everything in any industry.

    Amazing food amazing atmosphere, can get a bit expensive but is completely expected for a restaurant like this - you pay for what you get. My only complaint is it is very hard to get in touch with the restaurant. No information on the menu and I had questions about food sensitivities but could not reach them, email, call, and using the open tables app I reached out for weeks. When we actually went it was great and the servers made sure to keep all food allergies into consideration which was fantastic, it just would’ve been nice to not worry about this until the day of.
