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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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.
