Fantastic 15th anniversary dinner. Warm staff acknowledged this event with a card signed by the entire crew waiting at our table. I have too many great things to say about the food, so just go and try it. Thank me later.
My family and I visited Fairouz for the first time this past weekend. We all enjoyed the food very much; it was cooked to perfection and everything we had was delicious: the dips, the kebab, the chicken, the cauliflower and the chocolate coffee ice cream bar. The restaurant is very attractive and the service was exceptional. Thank you!
To be honest we were disappointed. The food lacked a lot of flavour, which surprised us.
The food was excellent. The zaatar crusted lamb was the best lamb I have ever tasted. Unfortunately, the four bite sized pieces of lamb were not worth $44 in my opinion. I would recommend the place for the taste and the experience but everything I got off the menu was not worth the price at all. If the portion sizes were larger, I could justify paying the insane prices.
Ambience music was a too loud. Was difficult to cover noise, chats and music.
Très bon choix des ingrédients utilisés dans les différents plats. Une cuisine originale très appréciée à Ottawa.
Really excellent tastes and textures of surprising bites. Friendly, knowledgable service. Perhaps the best eating experience in Ottawa
It was my first time. I was there for my 25th birthday and it was an amazing experience. My server Laura was incredible. She is incredibly knowledgeable about wine and all menu items. The food was beautifully styled and the flavours were impeccable. I will definitely be going again. Well done!
Excellent food and service! A little on the loud side, but thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Thanks!
Good food, attentive service, nice ambience. Will definitely visit again.
Easily the best meal I’ve had in Ottawa to date. The service was outstanding, the flavours were creative and exciting - will definitely be returning soon.
While the menu has changed since I was a regular patron back in 2004 (I thought they had closed down, but they were actually renovating), the food is presented beautifully and the portions were perfect for the two of us. The one thing I would like to see is a sampler plate for sharing.
Amazing food, beautiful space. Will come back for many special occasions
The food was good but very expensive for the small portions presented. There weren't many options on the menu. The ambiance was nice.
Exceptional food and service. As always!
Wonderful dinner with family to celebrate two birthdays. Fantastic service, food and hospitality. Thank you!
Pitas and dips highlight of meal. All courses interesting, flavorful and well executed. Only thing mediocre was the salmon- I don't know if it is because good fish less available in Ottawa (& better in ny where we live) or because of restaurant but it wasn't as good as the other food- less seasoned and not rich. Service was excellent, attentive and friendly.
Had a great time with friends at Fairouz. The server was excellent and very thorough in helping us find what worked best for our table. Great food and excellent cocktails.
Excellent service and decor. Plates are very creative and delicious. Not many vegetarian options for mains, but a good selection for appetizers.
Upon arriving, we were welcomed by a friendly, professional and polite member of the service team who quickly showed us to a perfect spot in the well-decorated and cozy restaurant. While we had one main server, they work as a team, so we interacted with most if not all team members who were equally attentive, polite, social and informative. We were provided an overview of the menu, which was concise while informative. Server also provided solicited recommendations, which were spot on, which I know cause we followed them to a tee. As such, it goes without saying that the food was delicious, filling, but not overwhelming. Highly recommended.
Amazing! We had two dips, the roasted cauliflower and then the shared meat platter. We were worried about being hungry after and we were very very wrong. Everything was delicious! Great vibe and great sharing plates. YUMMY! Also amazing cocktails. Thanks for the great experience!
Nice atmosphere and but overrated restaurant! Less than our expectations. Even few tasty mezes and mains the menus is limited, portions are quiet small, prices are really high ! Good for drinks and appetizers.
Amazing food and even better serving staff. everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. we were there for the sunday mezze menu, and we were very satisfied with all suggestions and choices. would definitely return.
Great food....tanatallizes the taste buds. And great service!
I thank Fairouz for showing me what hummus is supposed to taste like. Everything we ate was delicious and beautiful. Loved how knowledgeable and friendly the wait staff was.
Everything was very good from service, food presentation to taste. Only thing is that if you are hungry double up on the mains and appetizers as portions are small, especially considering the staff tote them as sharing plates. The quality of the food will bring us back!
The food was amazing and the waitress, Sarah, was incredibly knowledgeable. I love that so much is made in house or sourced locally. Great find!
Loved it! Amazing as always!
We had the lamb and it's highly recommended. However, beware that it's listed as a sharing dish which is what we thought we had ordered. Instead we each got a sharing dish, making it expensive and too much to eat. Also, the lamb needs a small portion of rice to be added to the plate. We had to order a massive amount of rice as a side order.
Expensive, but for the quality of the food and service, worth it.
Amazing service and food. A beautiful atmosphere to celebrate a special occasion. Prices are very reasonable and the flavours are exciting.
The food was quite tasty. I went on a day when the portions were small sized (Mezze) which is the only reason I am not giving the food a 5/5. The service was excellent, the ambiance was great and the food did not take too long to be prepped. The lamb kofta was my favourite dish, as well as the chicken.
Absolutely delicious, great ambiance. Would recommend going with at least a group of four since the menu is all about sharing plates -- you'd get to sample more of the menu.
One of the best meals I've ever had! Enjoyed fabulous Lebanon wine, staff was excellent, thoughtful & well versed on details of the food & wine. Lighting was perfect and the atmosphere was inviting. I look forward to the next meal there. Thank you
Delicious food, excellent service. Best place to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Thx a lot
The food and wine were both delicious. I like the unique nature of the food
As usual a solid place to eat with amazing service; always amazing service.
Wonderful service, excellent, flavourful cuisine. Beautiful surroundings made fore a pleasant evening.
The only downside was the fennel side salad. It had a strong taste to it almost spoiled. Considering it was paired with the sockeye salmon, it should be a refreshing salad and not one that has too many ingredients.
Awesome experience and we are coming back . Food was very tasty , great presentation and service was one of the best we have enjoyed.
