We were at Tulip for the Valentine's promotion. The restaurant is very nice and the servers very attentive. The menu was disappointing. The beetroot soup was luke warm and adding the frozen rose petals might have been theatrical, but really took away from the romantic dinner and didn't taste good. The roses were very large and overwhelmed the plate. The petals had a chalky texture, tasted bitter and were unpleasant to the palate. A couple of petals in the shape of a heart would have sufficed. The pork chop was well cooked, but lacked seasoning. The potato and turnip cream had an odd texture that seemed to melt with the heat of the pork chop. A thicker mashed potato consistency would have been better.
When we reserved I noted a fruit allergy. I was told they would accommodate. The waiter was not aware. He assured me it would not be a problem. He brought a chocolate tart then immediately advised it was made with orange rind. It looked beautiful, but I only had a few bites. It didn't sit well. Surprising they had no desserts without fruit. Should have ordered coffee instead. My suggestion - keep it simple. They tried too hard to make it fancy. Portions could be a bit larger. Salad was delicious, but micro in size. Cocktails were really good too.

From the moment we walked in we knew we where in for a great experience. The table was set with each plate having a tulip on it, tulip shaped wine glasses as well. Our server was great friendly the perfect level of attentiveness. Then the food, oh my the flood. The soup was interactive with a frozen rose you clapped on to your soup, such fun and tasted great. Each course was full of flavour and looked almost to pretty to each. We will be going back here again.

Would absolutely recommend this to anyone who is interested in beautiful and quiet evening to enjoy each other's company. Food was amazing and couldn't ask for service. That's including the whole staff.
Can't wait until next year.

The atmosphere was nice. The food was good but not what we were expecting based on how dishes are advertised online (dish presentation was underwhelming). I ordered veg pasta with no mushrooms and it came out with mushrooms. We ordered the Bombay gin cocktail three times and each time it came out in a different sized glass. Otherwise it was a great experience and our server was attentive and brought us a special dessert for our anniversary

We made a reservation for last Sunday night. It was obviously not necessary, as there was only one couple there who left shortly after we entered. There were no serving staff, or anybody else, around for about the next 4 or 5 min. when young man came out and said "Oh, Sundays aren't busy" and went to get us menu. We were not impressed by the ambiance, or the attitude and left to dine elsewhere. The menu looked quite interesting, but we suggest that some serious improvements are required. We will not be back again!!

Very slow service even though the restaurant was empty. Soured the experience sadly because the food was very good.

Most of the items were not available as we were just being fooled by the Instagram page. Posting photos only for promotion and not actually serving it is cheating the customer.

Super service! J’ai commandé un gâteau surprise pour mon conjoint et c’était très bon et toute l’ équipe du resto est venue chanter et apporter le gâteau à table. J’en suis très contente. Le gâteau était super bon aussi. Je recommande fortement ce restaurant.

The muscles are amazing as is the carbonara! Located inside the Hilton this unassuming restaurant could compete with some of the best fine dining establishments I've been to. Pleasantly surprised. The presentation, creativity, quality and taste are notable. I've went 3 times in the last 2 weeks I've been working in Ottawa. The staff were all great as well.

This is the second time that week we ate there because we liked it. The only reason it was noisy that day was the noise on the road outside. It was a holiday in Aruba and cars were playing loud music. Normally it's quiet and pleasant.
