    My favourite Ottawa bar. Always good ambience and service. Well constructed martini, as expected. But this time wife’s Bucatini Amatriciana was a tad problematic: we were told that yes, it could be had sans guanciale, since we avoid meat. But upon arrival it still came with a generous portion thereof. Hardly the end of the world, and the rest of it was fine, but still… Alas, stuff happens! Will we return? Of course!

    It was my first time at Zoe's with a friend and the experience was very enjoyable. The staff was friendly and asked about dietary restrictions that we had. The food was delicious, especially the savoury platter which I wish we had more of. Tea was also very good, there were many varieties. Overall a great experience and would like to come back again.

    The Chateau is indisputably the grande dame of Ottawa hotels. The afternoon high tea at Zoe's provided a very elegant but nut stuffy experience that one would expect to travel to larger cities for.

    Noise level was as expected but over all we found it was overpriced for the amount of food we received. We only received one tray for two persons but other table had two trays per two persons at the cost of 175.00.

    A bit disappointing for what we paid . I felt place wasn’t clean , I could see dirt on side of window and on tea pot . Desserts were heavy . Sandwiches and scones were amazing . Too expensive for what you are getting . Not what I expect at a Fairmont quality wise . Did high tea else where in the world and this is disappointing in comparison . Even tea cup and tea cup plate were mismatched . A bit messy

    The service was excellent. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. When I couldn't tap my credit card because the total amount exceeded its daily limit, one staff member split the bill in two so that I could tap the card. The food was OK, but considering the price of admission, they should be better.

    After a short wait in the elegant lobby we were seated at a table for two near the tea cart. The food and tea menu was interesting to read. The three- tiered platter showcased the entire meal. The tiny delicate sandwiches were delicious. My favourite was the shrimp salad on a mini croissant. Two kinds of scones were presented and you add the cream and jam yourself. The waitress lit a candle in a small piece of a chocolate cake along with other sweet treats and presented it to me at the end of our meal. My friend and I took home a box of the extras we could not finish. The dining experience was made even more lovely with the fine china and gorgeous decor in the room.

    Afternoon tea was average. Nothing spectacular. Not worth the cost. Sandwiches were interesting but average tasting. Definitely didn’t wow us. Scones were really a let down. Grocery store sells better. Certainly not what I would expect from a Fairmont. Desserts were the highlight. Enjoyed the selection and flavour. The wait staff were very good as well. Atmosphere however was lacking. Tea was served it in a glassed sunroom in 30 degree heat with no a/c only a couple of fans. In less intense heat it may be a nice room but the restaurant itself was mainly empty how about adapting to the situation and seating people in a cooler area of the room like on the main restaurant floor? All in all would not visit again. I have done lots of afternoon tea in various venues and this wouldn’t even make my top 10.

    The food was good, but given Zoe's reputation and what we paid, I expected better than just "good". The decor was bland - very little interest or colour, other than a few potted plants. The heavily padded chairs at the table we were shown were low and uncomfortable, so we asked for a different table. Those chairs were better, but the forward slant of the seat made them less than ideal. Servers were not masked, even though the city has recommended masking indoors with this new COVID wave. Although effort was clearly made in the food preparation, the results were unfortunately not impressive taste-wise. We were asked if it was a special occasion, and replied that it was our anniversary. The "bonus" for that was a plate with 3 small unremarkable dessert. squares. The bottom line is that we had high expectations, and were disappointed. There are better restaurants that we can go to next time.
