Very nice experience. The food was full of flavour and very interesting. The service was professional. For the quality of food and portion we found the pricing to be very reasonable.
Wonderful meal and service ! The lamb was so perfectly cooked. We enjoyed this meal!
Great variety of vegetarian dishes and great service.
It was our first time and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was excellent.
This was my wife’s birthday dinner with our sons and their girlfriends. Food was amazing. Our server was one of the worst I have experienced at a highly rated restaurant. She only seemed interested in explaining the menu and speaking to my eldest son and his girlfriend. We ordered both white and red wine. I wanted to taste test the white and after saying it was fine she took the bottle to younger end of the table to offer it to those who wanted white, she totally skipped asking my wife and only realized after putting the bottle back in the chilled holder. I asked for a clean glass to have the red wine she took my dirty white glass and didn’t bring a clean one back. After over 15 minutes I had flag down another server to bring me a glass and they brought it straight away. As the meal progressed she came to our table less and less. The other table staff were very good and brought anything we asked for right away. Even getting our bill was a chore as our server decided to spend almost 20 minutes chatting with another table who had already paid their bill. As a birthday celebration.it is a shame that such a poor server tainted such amazing food. We hope to return someday, but hope that the quality of service is addressed.
The food was very good but the level of service outstanding. I have IBS and had difficulty digesting some foods; the server was very concerned, even sent us a supervisor who communicated with the chef and bend over backwards to accommodate me out of her own volition.
Food was amazing. A bit pricey for the portion sizes.
Excellent service, and food! Staff remembered us from previous occasions which is very nice and shows that they really value their customers!
Very good food, nice ambiance
Delicious food. Excellent service in English and in French!!
Every dish is prepared and plated beautifully. The flavours combine perfectly. The staff is informed, helpful and attentive. It can be a little bit difficult to hear once the restaurant is full, but this is a sign of how loved the place is. Favourites right now: the muhammara, carrot tahini, artichoke, asfar rice, cauliflower and chicken. Every dish has happily adored flavours for my Middle Eastern palette, with innovative twists that delight while respecting the culinary origins of each plate. Fairouz is always a win for me and I love bringing friends here to try it!
Had an amazing experience! Our server gave us great wine recommendations! The food was absolutely delicious! I will be coming back!
It was very nice. Good was great.
Amazing food! Their waiters and waitresses are well trained.
It was a nice experience, good food and excellent service. We found a little pricy but it was a treat!
Always fantastic. Thanks very much for a great evening.
Did not disappoint.
Birthday was good cool
First rate all around. Venue is lovely with enough space between tables for comfort. Very nice atmosphere. Servers were friendly and not condescending to those unsure about the mezze concept. Food was delicious and not too expensive. I recommend one dip and two main plates max do you might have room for dessert. Will definitely go back.
Cannot wait to go back for the new menu! Thank you!
Delicious healthy food in a wonderful atmosphere. Try it!!
Food was amazing! It was quite pricy though for the portions of ‘meals to share’.
I’ve seen $$-$$$ for your restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was definitely a $$$.
But again, the food was amazing!!
Delicious food, attentive service, fun ambience. A bit noisy.
This was our third time at Fairouz. It was an opportunity to taste some new items on the menu, iterations of previous ones, and some fix staples, and corroborate that the outstanding quality that we had encountered before was no fluke. Fairouz is consistently excellent!
Also, open yourself to tasting some of the Lebanese wines on their list, you will be pleasantly surprised.
Perfect date night. Super quaint and beautiful textures to the design of the space. The food was special and delicious. Unique drinks offered. A little bit pricy for drinks, but given the quality and attention to detail, the food was worth the little bit extra. The service was excellent. I really loved it.
The food is really flavourful. The lighting was DARK! And as the place filled up the noise level increased.
It was our first time to Ottawa and our dinner at Fairouz was excellent. The cashew and pomegranate appetizer and the tahini mousse stand out in my mind as both unique and delicious. Wish we lived closer!
My boyfriend and I celebrated our 4th anniversary here and it was amazing. The ambiance is beautiful and intimate, the service is knowledgeable and so friendly, and the food is incredible. I can't reccomend this place enough!
First time but certainly not the last. A perfect Valentine outing.
Not your standard shawarma shack, Fairouz offers a gourmet middle eastern food experience. The suggestions were spot on. Three delicious dips to start, followed by delicious lamb and a sublime cauliflower side. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the garnish offered a crunchy hit of spice. The tahini sauce and pomegranate offered a wonderful salty-sweet compliment to the roasted cauliflower. The offerings are meant for sharing and we cleaned our plates! Sorry we waited so long to try Fairouz, but we’ll be back.
The food was delicious and we had absolutely great service. There was a dish we didn’t like so they didn’t charge us for it and replaced it with something else and we weren’t charged. It was our first time at fairouz and we truly enjoyed it.
Very enjoyable evening with extremely attentive service. Menu was a welcome contrast to some other standard-type fare in other establishments - we were looking for something a little different and certainly found and enjoyed our experience.
Fairouz is one of the best romantic restaurants in Ottawa to try if you are looking to treat your significant other on a special date!
It was my girlfriend’s 20th birthday. We had just walked in outfitted for our date. My girlfriend was holding a bouquet of roses I’d gotten her as well as a small gift from a well-known jewelry store. Our coats were quickly hung by 2 friendly servers and we were seated by this cute window sill – that I would have personally picked if I had the choice of seating because, honestly, it was ‘the perfect spot’. My girlfriend forgot her phone in her coat so I got up to go get it, but they told me to take a seat and they would bring her coat over to us, despite it being busy, and sure enough they did! When I was about to ask if they had something we could put my girlfriend’s flowers in, they came over with a vase with water and asked if we would like to put our flowers in it.
We were asked if we wanted ‘Still’ or ‘Sparkling’ water to start with.
For our ‘Mezze’ we had the Muhammara Dip $6 + Zaatar simply dip the pita bread into the oil then the Zataar or sprinkle the Zataar onto the oil and dip your pita into the bowl.
For our ‘Sharing Mains’ we had the Sumac Glazed Half Chicken. The plate was stacked vertically, with potatoes compactly stacked underneath most-chicken breasts. The pepper sauce was squeeze bottled into dots across the plate. All three of these ingredients put onto one fork made for one delicious bite!
For our ‘Sides’ we had the Fried Cauliflower (Tahini Sauce • Pomegranate • Sunflower Seeds). By the time we got to this course we were already pretty full. But, it was so delicious the sauce was too flavourful at this point to want to try and finish it as we were full!
We went for my daughters birthday. The service and meal were fabulous. Thank you for making the evening so wonderful.
We went there last Friday and the food was great as usual :)
Great food in a friendly warm and exotic surround. Loved the dips, chicken and fried cauliflower. Service was fab! Thanks!
This was the best meal I've had in Ottawa. The flavours were incredible, service was excellent. I also enjoyed the best cocktail of my life - the Open Sesame.
Food was ok. Service was ok. So much more value in ottawa’s restaurant scene than this!
We found it to be quite noisy. That was our only issue.
The noise level was so high, we had trouble hearing the person sitting next to us.
The food was good, but not fantastic as I remembered it used to be.
The prices very high.
If you go, i would suggest the tasting menu if they have it.
