*Please note that on Sunday and Monday we only offer an exclusive Mezze Menu*
The halloumi and the lamb were perfection, as always. Definitely one of my favourite places to eat (and drink!) in Ottawa.
An outstanding restaurant that was superb again. The food is very authentic Middle Eastern, but also innovative. They have a great value $48/person ($58 if you add a lamb option) family style option that provides a selection of appetizers, main courses and desserts. It is served family style, but the food is a major notch above the usual, simple family style fare.
The service was outstanding. The food was great! Will go back
Delicious and refined Lebanese.
Tapas night was awesome!
Celebrating my wife’s birthday. Service was awesome. They even gave my wife a bday card.
As always, a lovely experience. The menu is innovative and delicious. Staff is welcoming and professional.
Love it! Thank you for always being so amazing!
Great experience! Food delicious, attentive service!
Fantastic food, good, and attentive service. Our only complaint is that the music is a little too loud to permit easy conversation.
It was our first visite. Excellent service. Great food. We will be going back for sure. We will invite friends.
Some items were charged for but were not told to us beforehand. Did not like that.
Enjoyable evening all around. Happy to have an a la crate option on NYE; however, disappointed it was the Mezze menu as opposed to the usual offerings since we had a craving for a dish not available that night 😕 Will just have to return soon!
Amazing food. I am madly in love with this restaurant. I will be coming back at least 3/4 times a year.
Wonderful food and service, really enjoyed the elevated and creative cuisine. Will be back!
Wonderful and imaginative food and beautiful decor, with great service.
I’ve eaten at Fairouz several times and the food is always remarkable, truly innovative and perfectly prepared. The service is professional at a level too rarely seen in Ottawa. My only reservation is the shared plates have to be shared which meant that while I wanted the lamb, the person I was with did not. Alas. We did share three small plates and a dessert. All perfect.
My partner and have come here a few times to celebrate special events, and it has always been wonderful. The servers are professional, knowledgeable, and warm. The menu has some items that remain but change slightly with the seasons, which means you still get something new if coming semi-regularly, but know it remains consistently delicious. I would recommend to anyone looking for good food, attentive service and an excellent atmosphere.
Delicious food, excellent service. Very satisfying
Amazing food and service - can’t wait to go back! Definitely well worth the price.
The food was excellent in terms of taste, presentation and quality. Nevertheless we found it a bit overpriced. The server was knowledgeable and very friendly and attentive.
Service was very good. The food was fantastic and four of us thoroughly enjoyed sharing the chef’s suggestions. I’d return any time.
Very good food, great ambiance and great service. Stayed a long time and never felt rushed. Great place for a special occasion or for anytime.
Our second experience at fairouz on our 5 year anniversary. Everything was perfect. Every flavour note of every dish was on point. The hummus dish was incredibly creative and executed with a high level of technique. The lamb loin was overall one of the best things I have ever eaten. When people ask me what the best restaurant in Ottawa is, I confidently tell them fairouz. We are looking forward to our next visit to see what wonderful new creations are on the menu
Thank you for a wonderful evening
See you soon
A real Ottawa gem! I travel to Ottawa on occasion and make sure I dine here at least once on every visit. Creative, reliably delicious and in a great atmosphere with great staff. It would be tough to ask for anything more.
The whole experience was very good. Nice ambiance, our waiter was excellent, very professional. Found the food a little expensive for what it was but overall it was a very good time.
Fabulous food. Celiac friendly options. Taste and presentation were superb!
My friend and I had a wonderful meal. I love middle eastern flavours and each dish was unique and beautifully presented, as well as being delicious. I will gladly return.
This restaurant served excellent food. However, the noise level was so ridiculously high that we could not enjoy a conversation. My husband tuned out. Very disappointed. There is an easy fix - try to make it a classy place instead of a party place.
Enjoyed a great first experience! The service staff was outstanding very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Table was comfortable and spacious. Like many restaurants today its on the noisier side especially if there are larger tables. Wine list was interesting and had a no opportunity to try an outstanding wine from the Cannery Islands - a first. A wonderful experience.
Food and service was very good. My table was situated at the back of the restaurant near the bar and the kitchen. As a result it was quite noisy.
Great service at Fairouz and beautiful plating. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly.
I was slightly disappointed by the very limited wine options by the glass but the overall quality of the food was excellent.
My husband and I had dinner at Fairouz a couple of days ago and we really enjoyed our evening there.
The food was awesome and our server was very considerate. We‘ll definitely come again!
The service was great, all staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable on the menu and helpful. The food was excellent, everything was flavourful and cooked to perfection. The ambience was warm, inviting and conducive to good conversation and the decor was also beautiful. The only downside was that the portions were a bit small but otherwise it was a wonderful experience.
Me and my wife had a birthday dinner there. The food was fantastic. We are originally from middle Asia and can tell we felt like home. The music was quite and pleasant. Overall Fairouz is a on the middle-price level but the service was definitely better that all higher end places we’ve been to.
Server guided us through the menu very informatively. Food was very tasty and proportioned very well. Cocktails were excellent and the wine very good.
Love, love this place with its delicious and creative food...if you like flavours, that’s the place!
This is by far the best food I have had in a restaurant in Ottawa after a long long time. Our server “Taylor” was so sweet and knowledgeable that made our experience smooth and memorable. The food was exquisite and perfect. A fantastic place for date and romantic evening. Gets a bit noisy though would prefer if the noise level was a bit moderated. Other than that everything else was perfect.
Excellent meal but the last moments were spoiled by a heavy wine deposit at the bottom of my glass. When I showed the glass to the waitress she said that all bottles had a deposit. Not so but nevertheless the deposit should have been kept in the bottle! They kindly offered to pour a glass from a new bottle but the meal was over with that last mouthful of deposit.
A Taste experience. Everything I hoped for
It was our first time there and would go back for sure if in the Ottawa area. Went on a Sunday night so had the small plates - great experience.
