Between the central locale afforded by its gracious home in the landmark Lord Elgin Hotel, a warm and yet contemporary ambience, a locally sourced menu and a casual-to-sophisticated stocked cellar, Forty-One has become one of Ottawa’s top new restaurants.

Named Forty-One in recognition of the year, 1941, that the Lord Elgin was built, the restaurant features a modern environment and classic menu that is a perfect match for connecting with new and familiar faces. Guests are able to relax in the inviting lounge with flat screen TVs and large windows overlooking Elgin Street or enjoy an intimate dinner or a group get together in the dining area. With a capacity of close to 150, the restaurant features booths and banquette seating to allow flexibility to accommodate guest needs whether they are popping in for lunch, a quick after-work cool-down, a pre-theatre warm-up or an evening night cap. Forty-One also includes a private dining room for up to 30 guests.

    We went here for breakfast. It was ok at most. The Benedict eggs were cooked hard and the portions were pretty small for the price. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

    The food was delicious. I ordered the half fish and chips. The piece of fish was small, but there were plenty of fries, so I was not left hungry. Everything tasted wonderful. Everyone in our group enjoyed their food, and we had excellent service. I didn't really notice the noise level. It was not very quiet, and it was not overly loud. We were able to converse without raising our voices.

    My friend and I both had the fish and chips, which were truly excellent. His wife had the clam chowder and the fish taco. The chowder wasn't hot or thick enough, but she absolutely loved the fish taco, which was very spicy! All in all, I'd rate our experience at 97%.

    For the cost, I found the food to be below average, when I am paying $59 for a steak and fries I am expecting the steak to be perfect and flavourful but that was not the case. Fries were good, beat salad was good, but the steak was average at beat, it didn’t have the restaurant quality flavour I would have expected.

    My grand daughter had a Shirley Temple that was mostly ice. 3 sips and that was all. Her poutine was OK but not warm enough to meet the cheese that was at the bottom. My chicken was well cooked but not much taste of the cheese, the vegetables were mushy, overcooked and tastless. It was suppose to be a célébration dinner but frankly very disappointing.

    The server Cathy that we had for both our dinner meals on Feb 22&23 was one of the best I've ever had. She went above and beyond to give us a great experience.

    Our server was amazing. The chef created a meal that met my dietary issues that may have been better than the original! Thanks for a lovely experience

    Relaxed atmosphere, friendly service, but every single dish we ordered was badly overcooked. Cooks night off?
