*Please note that on Sunday and Monday we only offer an exclusive Mezze Menu*
Stood at the front desk being ignored by 3 members of staff for two minutes.
After asking if we could move tables a waitress said she’d get back to me but never did.
Food was not hot when it arrived.
Felt the pita breads for the dip were purposefully made small to try and force you to pay for more. When we didn’t order more the waitress almost looked disappointed.
Food itself was just okay. But that could have been because it was not hot when it arrived
Excellent in every way. I highly recommend it. Server at the bar where I sat was very personable.
I found the place very tight and Too noisy , service very slow but food is good .
The service was exceptional as always and good to die for!!!
Food and device were exceptional. Every member of the staff knew it was a special birthday dinner and made a point of mentioning it. They had a hand signed card waiting on the table, and had a specially decorated dessert. Great meal!
This restaurant keeps amazing me with outstanding service, and serves food with amazing flavours. There was a birthday card for me upon my arrival. I'm already planning my next visit. Thank you!!
This was my second time at Fairouz, and I was blown away. The food was fantastic, delicious and well-portioned, and the service was impeccable. Will definitely go back, and would recommend Fairouz to friends without reservation!
Food was good, not the wow I was expecting from reading the menu, service meh, waitress was too loud, music doesn’t fit the middle eastern ambiance, and prices are way to high for what is being offered specially when you have to order your sides for your main course which is already at $70 and a bowl of rice or cauliflower is $13. This comes to a point of prétention...
This was our first time dining at Fairouz and it won’t be our last. We ordered the set menu. It was amazing! It was a selection of a variety of different taste starting with a wonderful selection of appetizers to steak and chicken main dishes ending with a nice assortment of desserts. Highly recommended!
Noise is a problem. Suggest installing some noise cancellation paneling or something.
We had a fantastic time. Food and service was great!
Thank you for the amazing service, great food and the birthday card!
We had such a lovely time last Saturday. Fairouz offered us a delicious meal with flavour profiles and cooking techniques that are not a part of our every day. Our server was attentive. The different courses were well paced. We felt sated but not stuffed when we left. I've been to Fairouz with a group of girlfriends and with my partner. Both visits have fostered conviviality and enjoyment--exactly what I hope for in a night out. (I wish I'd brought my wrap. I was a bit cold by the window.)
Absolutely fabulous and would highly recommend to all my friends. Found the lighting a bit low for reading menus. Wonderful service and waiters.
Our server was great but I gave a 3 for the bartender.
He didn’t acknowledge us until we were getting up to be brought to our table. Even if he was busy, he should’ve at least said hello or be right with you..
Perfect in all ways. Great food and service. Great value.
Great food. Awesome cocktails. Lovely atmosphere.
Lovely evening overall. Food here is phenomenal, and service was excellent. It was my second time here and I'll definitely be back.
Very disappointed. We love Lebanese cuisine which this did not resemble. Even with a limited menu, which might give one hope that each dish would be especially good, both the appetizers the main were a big disappointment. Even your average schwarma or gyro shack would outshine this over-hyped & over-priced excuse for Lebanese. Stick to Beavertails!
Very creative use of flavor, colour, and texture. Very impressive.
The food, wine and service were all tremendous. The sommelier has added some interesting choices to the wine list which just added to our experience. Fairouz has become one of the top spots in the city.
Absolutely, your restaurant is the best, thanks Tony!
Beautifully presented food with very interesting ingredient combinations. I really enjoyed and want to try the other things on their menu.
Excellent food and I was most impressed with the glass that my scotch came in. It was a proper scotch glass.
Terrible experience. They are dishonest and scamming. We ordered half a chicken for $40 and it wasn’t even half a chicken. We were told it could feed 3 and it could barely feed one, unless you’re under 4 years old. We were also told it came with a salad and it did not. It’s clear that it was all just a money grab. Very disappointing.
Amazing night! We had the full tasting menu and we enjoyed every thing! Service was impeccable! I will crave again for the appetizers and for the lamb! Salmon was not the best (not seasoned) but everything else was amazing. Thanks to Fairouz for that great supper and time!
I wasn't quite satisfied with all the plates. Middle eastern missed on the flavour of the region. I didn't believe that they charged for the olive oil to on one of the dips that you would get on any dip in the middle east.
We were looking for a different dining experience and Fairouz did not disappoint. Very unique dishes, nice ambiance and great service.
Absolutely delicious cuisine! Beautiful presentation and our bellies are always satisfied! One of my favourites in the city.
Some missteps on the food: heavy oversalting (and I love salt) and the cheese appetizer with strawberry yoghurt was like a child's imitation of fine dining - really ill-judged. I think this place is fine in a pinch, a little overpriced, and perhaps a little too pleased with itself. It looks better than it is.
Noise level was a real issue for us - difficult to keep up a conversation across the table. Food was good, but given the price, I expected better. My three companions were more satisfied. For instance, I thought my end piece of chicken was dry, but the others were happy with their pchicken. Our meal provided a good variety of interesting flavours.
Attentive service - waitress very knowledgeable of wine selections, and all plates on menu. Kudos! Nicely decorated. Meals are for sharing, and being 6 (including a vegetarian with a particular food allergy), we ordered an appetizer, 3 mains and 2 sides. Knowing the size of the plates now, 3 mains and an additional side would have been preferable. Overall, great food, fantastic service and very accommodating. I do recommend.
Great city vibe restaurant with exquisite food and flavours and fantastic service! Really great experience!
My wife and I had a pleasant time, but came away quite disappointed in the overall taste of the food and the price. While we both loved the cheese appetizer and liked the eggplant main (delicious if you love tons of cumin), the fish main was very disappointing - flavourless and slightly overcooked, and something we easily could have made at home. (note that it wasn't terrible... Just bland, and out of character, as we didn't really get anything middle eastern from the BC salmon...)
200+ dollars later, and I'm thinking there are many better places in town.
Fairouz is one of our favourite restaurants in Ottawa. We always get amazing service from the serving staff (thank you Taylor!) and of course the kitchen (chef Walid is a superstar). Every time we go, we just order the tasting menu so we don't have to make any hard decisions and we have never been disappointed. They change things up often to keep the menu very interesting and delicious. Thanks again for a wonderful Friday evening!
Great food and service as usual. The grilled Nabulis (sp) cheese was inspired. Always a wonderful place to be , with staff who know their stuff and really seem to enjoy sharing their food and place with you.
Everything from the food to the service was fantastic. The flavours were well balanced and the cocktails were delicious! The service was casual yet professional and not over powering at all. Thank you!
I can say with confidence this was the best dining experience I've ever had in Ottawa. I will definitely be back.
One of the best meals of my life. Very creative, incredible pairings, the combination of flavours was amazing. Service was top notch. Deservedly one of very best restaurants in Ottawa.
The ambiance was amazing, the table service was intimate and attentive (Alex) and the food was exceptional. We had a special drink made for us by the charismatic bartender (Daniel) who listened to our request and created something unique. The other patrons seemed equally satisfied as the energy was positive and the conversations at the tables were robust. We will be returning for another great meal. Thank you!
The meal we had at Fairouz was one of the three best meals I ha e ever eaten. And I am old!
The service was attentive without being annoying. I highly recommend this restaurant.
