    Octopus was over cooked and chewy but they did redo it and it was good the second time around. They use a lot of corn and it appeared in several dishes. To many flavours all mixed together and they get lost in the final taste. Overkill. Love the decor and the service was good.

Been here before; this evening there was some delays with the starters, but they were apologetic and gracious about it. Overall good experience, highly recommended.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary and have a fabulous experience. We started with scallops then had the duck (amazingly good) and then had the white mousse strawberry dessert. Food was excellent and the service was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Absolutely would recommend.

    The staff were pleasant and the ambience was excellent. Our prawn appetizer was disappointing - if they were prawns they were quite small on the other hand the steak tartare was very good although my partner thought it had a bit of a vinegar aftertaste. I had the ribeye steak which was good and my partner had the lamb chops which she ordered medium rare - they came very rare to the point of being partly raw in the centre part. Deserts were good. Overall a pleasant venue for dinner - a bit overpriced but we expected this in Ottawa.

    Both the shrimp and Caesar salad appetizers were not as good as they have been in the past, and one of our steaks was way too rare. Service was excellent though and they comped our dessert to make up for the undercooked steak.

    Beautiful venue in historic building, hard to match. It was dead quiet, surprising during Winterelude even for a Sunday night. The food and service were good and about fair value for the price, maybe lacking a bit in portion size. My expectations are high as a big eater when paying $29.00 for a salad and $58.00 for a piece of Black Cod. We brought our own wine and paid the corcage fee [$30.00] but still managed to spend $250.00 for 2 people.

    Couldn't hear ourselves think let alone speak over the group of rude idiots at the table next to us. Some people have no concept that others live on the planet. The food and service were excellent. Wine arrived after our meal was served but this was the only mark on a perfect meal. Our waitress Hannah should teach a course on waitressing. She handled the hiccups handed to her with grace and aplomb. I had oysters and tenderloin with the bone marrow sauce, and it was a top ten lifetime for me. My daughter had the duck and it was plentiful and a little heavy (it was duck after all). Her creme brulee was 7.5/10, my Pavlova was 10/10. Cocktails were perfect. I highly recommend a side car and my daughter recommends a corpse reviver #2. The ambiance was perfect. Gorgeous setting. You must eat here.
