The Albion Rooms
My friend and I are both vegetarian. We thought the eggplant dish was delicious ! We would happily return if there were more vegetarian options on the menu. There is only one small plate which is vegetarian. It would be great if there were more options for us. You would see us more often. (I know other vegetarians would love the restaurant if there were more options.)
The wine selection is good but very pricey! A smalll glass of wine costs at least $13. I would like there to be a choice of 5 or 8 oz. glasses of wine and a respectable house wine at a more affordable price.
Food is excellent! I was sad to hear the scotch egg is no longer on the menu... the atmosphere is really nice and the service is great.
It wasn’t awful but I was less than impressed overall. The reservation said it was for a celebratory night with my wife, and I had preordered a bottle of wine. We got there and nothing was set up, we were sat at a table surrounded by little kids (Not sure why an expensive restaurant like that had so many kids at 8:30 at night but three of the tables surrounding us had five kids between them), I had to re-order the wine since nobody was on top of that then it turns out that the wine I asked for (which had significance to my wife) was all out. The charcuterie and appetizers we had were quite good, the entrées were so – so, dessert was not worth the money.
At that price points I have been to a dozen better restaurants in Ottawa… We won’t be attending that one again
Birthday celebration with my friend. Service and food was outstanding. We’ll defend be back!
Great food. A bit on the pricey side when compared to comparable quality elsewhere. Overall great experience.
The Albion room was fantastic, from the ambiance to the food! Also the portion sizes were great - definitely felt full after this meal! We will be back!
Excellent ambience and amazing food. Accommodated a special menu for us, given I mistakenly thought the Valentine’s Day set menu was for all weekend. Amazing flavours and excellent wine pairings.
Since leaving this restaurant, I’ve told everybody about this place. I’m definitely going back and will recommend this place for everyone’s downtown dining.
Excellent Charcuterie and farm-to-table menu options. Small plates or full entrees, something for everyone. We enjoyed trying some new things - the elk burger and “seed to sausage” bacon was delicious. Thanks for a great evening!
We had a wonderful dinner - loved the new menu! Always a great atmosphere and friendly staff!
Just in for a drink, but what a beautiful drink it was. Able to have a quiet conversation. Comfy chairs and unobtrusively efficient service.
Food was great but service was lacking. Our waitress rarely came over and seemed not to care about our table. Our hostess was way more helpful and way better attitude.
We were there at 2pm on a Sunday for a girls brunch. It was quiet and we had a lovely table with excellent service. We all enjoyed our meals: The Albion was delicious, as was The Smoked Fish (large wedge of smoked salmon), and Potatoes, Bacon & Eggs, all with an amazing presentation. We all loved the Signature Cocktails. They were interesting and delicious. We will definitely come back.
Fantastic craft cocktails, great service, excellent food. Worth the visit.
Enjoyed my New Year's Eve dinner here. However, we were first disappointed when we requested a window seat and were told all the empty ones were reserved but they all remained empty during our entire time there (and we had reservations too). The charcuterie was good but I did not like my main dish at all. My date's meal was overly salty. I was looking forward to their cocktails but I was honestly disappointed by the menu so I ordered a glass of wine instead.
Lovely Christmas Day dinner.
I had a great brunch with my mum and sister - the menu had some creative and delicious options! I have loved Albion Rooms for lunch and dinner but this is definitely amazing for brunch as well!
La nourriture était excellent, le service agréable et l'atmosphère très relaxante, parfaite pour un brunch
An excellent place to have a calm and relaxed dinned with friends. We were there as a group of 3 couples, and the ambiance reminded us of a cozy scene from the series Friends. The kind of place you want to just sit, relax and enjoy the evening with good food. This was our second visit to the Albion Rooms and we will definitely return.
Great food and awesome service. No complaints at all. Would highly recommend to friends/family.
How does the restaurant deal with problems? One meal came with hot meat and stone cold vegetables. Kitchen dealt with problem promptly, not just placing plate in microwave, but replating the sides.
Cocktails were a highlight.
Incredibly slow service! There was a giant party, but they should have had adequate staff. Took 20 min to get a drink. Not once during the meal did our waiter check in on us. The fools gold cocktail was not good (like a weak old fashioned with pineapple juice). Overall, spent $$ and over 3 hours for a charcuterie board- not worth it.
Delicious food and great service. Able to make small changes to plates given personal preferences. Recommend the goat cheese salad! Or the duck! And charcuterie board was excellent!
The food and service were incredible! The beef short ribs literally melt in your mouth. It is a common saying but not usually literal. they melted like butter!
Food excellent but the service was slow. I enjoy the atomshere
This was intended to be a birthday celebration but from the moment we entered the restaurant we didn’t feel particularly special. It took forever for someone to notice us. When someone did they didn’t crack a smile or seen particularly interested in welcoming us. The reservation indicated that it was for a birthday but he didn’t check the reservation list and sat us in the bar area. We left without ordering. Love the food there but service was atrocious. Won’t be back for a while
100% love this place. It was hard to find the server sometimes. Took longer than expected to give our order.
This is the place to go for a luxurious and romantic meal. The food and cocktails are phenomenal and the staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable. We will absolutely be back again and again.
Our server was good. The food was great, However the time between ordering and receiving our meals was very long.
The server was really sweet and accomodating with our reservation.
Wonderful clean hotel. Outstanding service and professionalism. Perfectly located downtown Ottawa, close to everything. Very warm and friendly atmosphere. Would definitely return.
This is a fantastic place. Amazing charcuterie and don’t pass up a Caesar. Great wine list and excellent service. You won’t be disappointed
Disappointing. We all noticed a bit of an attitude from the server. The food took about 45min to arrive and we had to go get the server to pay our bills. It was not the usual for this place.
Terrific food - we could have stayed all night and day ordering charcuterie and small plates. Thank you for making everything in house. The pickled sides, cured meats and sausages were spot on.
If I can make one suggestion - background music was missing. Nothing too loud - just to fill the space. But wasn't a deal breaker. Oh - and great cocktails!
Very beautiful room, with lovely decor. Service was excellent. The food was good but nothing exceptional. The air conditioning was too high and I was very cold throughout the meal. Still a very nice experience overall.
Loved this restaurant! Food and presentation were amazing! My plates were so beautiful that I took pictures of them before eating. Our waiter was great - - we loved this restaurant and will definitely visit again when we are in Ottawa!
Food was great and service was amazing!
Our meals were delicious unfortunately it was served barely above room temperature. We waited so long for our food that we consumed it rather than wait to have it warmed up. Service was slow. It seemed as if the wait staff were way too busy. Too few employees to service the clients properly.
An unexpected find. We were hoping to be in the dining room but were seated in the pub area, however it was quiet and seemed quite private. Lovely. Our waiter was great. The food memorable. We will return!
This is one of my favorite restaurant in the city and I'm always dining there but this time I decided to try their brunch. I was super pleased with their food and of course the great service I got. This restaurant never dissapoints me.
