Pricey, but outstanding service and food. Would consider it in the top 3 restaurants in Ottawa.
Came to this restaurant for two reasons, three minutes walk from my hotel and it's on the 11th spot recommended by Tripadvisor. I really like the interior design! From hostess to server to busboy were all very friendly and professional. Food was good but not exceptional, price was a little on the high side, but tell me what is not these days? Over all I would give 4 stars out of 5
Awesome service <3 , special night , Zach who take care of us has been amazing
We had the Chef’s Tasting Menu with wine pairing and it was delicious! Excellent service from our server/host and other wait staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Always interesting food. Expensive, but good value.
Everything was first rate - with the small exception of the octopus starter, which was a bit too tough for my liking.
The steak and staff was superb, and made up for the starter. My advice would be to choose something different. Would go back for a special occasion.
Traditional cooking done with great care and attention to details. Service impeccable and welcoming. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked, rosé as we say in french. Don’t miss it.
We went there for our 16 years anniversary and completely enjoyed the experience. The food was fantastic.
Service was A1 and steak …Just perfect
Little expensive… but no regret!!!!
Good good (The black cod could havé been better); great service.
It was an amazing dinner. The servce was awsome and i would recommend it to all my friends and family. My birthday dinner was speachlessly good
The service was impeccable everyone was so nice. The food was wonderful. We will definitely be back.
Arrived at 10, which was too late for the tasting menu - so we asked the chef to make something s/he wanted to, without any restrictions. We were served two delicious courses (fois gras, duck) that were marvelously paired, along with a final cheese platter. We loved the staff's flexibility; Noemi, our waitress, was very personable and engaging.
Overall a wonderful experience, and we'll definitely return.
Awesome service, great wine and food
Great food. We went for the tasting menu with wine pairing and all was good.
Quality of dishes, plate presentation, service (Noemi, very special) and ambiance was perfect, in spite the room being large and on several levels, historic stone building with very classy, chic, "of today modern" decor, the feeling was intimate.
Last but not least, if you are a tourist (like we), some of the best hotels in town, as well as the National Gallery are but a short walking distance.
Great restaurant great food portion was perfect size
Great!! Good service, good atmosphere, good food, respectful of Covid precautions.
Gorgeous place, food was excellent and beautifully presented. The service was first class.
Had the half seafood tower to start. Wife had the striploin and I had the tenderloin for the main. Everything was cooked and presented to perfection. The service was amazing, table was cleared quickly after each course and servers were always attentive to when drinks or top ups were required. Ottawa’s number 1 restaurant by far.
This is a dining experience every one should enjoy
Beautiful environment, friendly, gracious staff, amazing food- I will dine here again
This place has amazing food and amazing staff!! The manager was very involved and we had a blast !! Highly recommend
The food was amazing!
There was a good quality of service the food was Excellente the meat very tender and the vegetables well seasoned
The food portions were too small for the price - customer service and explanation of food was excellent. It would have been helpful to receive proper explanation for the 5 course meal before it was ordered as we ended up only truly enjoying the 3/5 meal.
We had made the reservations for friends visiting from Switzerland who had invited us, and we were all very impressed. A Monday night in Ottawa, the greeting was sincere, the service beyond excellent and the food more than met our expectations.
All was good but the restaurant did not do any birthday special such as small cake. It was unfortunate as was requested
Great food and service. Would have expected a better seat not by the door having made the reservation 3 months in advance.
wonderful, attentive staff/service and comfortable noise levels...enough noise to be lively, but not so loud you have to scream. the dishes were exciting, beautifully plated, and were overall delicious. they even went the extra mile and served us a special anniversary dessert plate, which was a lovely touch.
the nitpicky part: there was a bit of room for improvement in taste (cod dish was overly salty and the burrata could have used just a touch more acid) but don't let that stop you...the grilled octopus and duck were fabulous, and it's a wonderful place for a special evening! :)
The food was properly cooked , beautifully presented and tasted good but it was not hot , just warm, when it arrived at the table. The cod and steak entrées were small.
I assume, due to Covid, the staff were new and that was the reason for the communication issues.
The birthday treat offered my husband was 1 lonely plate with 3 raspberries
, 2 very small chocolate treats and 4 forks to share among the 4 of us. Given the reputation of the restaurant, this offering was totally inappropriate.
As always, the food was amazing! The steak was cooked to perfection & the dessert was mind blowing! Out waiter was delightfully charming & assisted us with selecting the perfect wine to pair with our steaks in our price point. I would strongly recommend 18 to anyone. It is a wonderful dining experience.
One of the best steaks I've eaten in Ottawa, with delicious seasonal vegetables. Great service as always!
Great service great food great wine
The most amazing rib steak you will ever eat, cooked and seasoned to perfection
every time and adding the Béarnaise Sauce just takes things to another level, the mushrooms as a side are perfect and an art form all on their own. The field salad is so good-the jumbo chilled prawns-so well done. Do not get sucked in by the whipped butter that has this beautiful citrus flavour plus salted, and also comes with an oil which has this sweet taste to it... and fill up on bread, it is hard not to. I ate the last few bites of my steak with my eyes closed so I could memorize all the flavours exactly, forever. Manny is the absolute best server we have ever had, Mark is amazing too-all the staff are fantastic. We shared all 4 delectable desserts-again they too were perfection-ugh the crème brulee! My mum, sisters and I had an absolutely amazing experience. I don't know who the Chef is but that kitchen puts out the sexiest food, ever. End of true story.
We had the 5-course menu and the food was very tasty. Since we wanted to go for Canadian wines there were not too many choices. Very central location.
We enjoyed the whole evening. Chef tasting menu was delicious, and service was top notch. Definitely recommend.
Server was amazing and very attentive. Food was delicious but it was a bit on the cold side. Great ev to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
Amazingly delicious staff was extremely friendly. Very polite our waiter made sure we wore taken good care of We will definitely be coming back. Our experience was phenomenal. Thank you for this experience
My husband and I came in to celebrate our soon to be born son and we had the best time! They made our special event extra special and for that we are so very grateful. The food was amazing, cooked to perfection.
We will definitely return and bring our friends and family ❤
