    Unacceptable to have the fire alarm testing going off in the middle of family day brunch. Also, the food wasn’t great for a high end hotel restaurant like this. Will not be returning.

    We were there for the Valentine's dinner and had the last seating. Our server was rushed and abrupt, our courses came way too fast, we were not given a wine list until we asked for one, we had to wait a very long time to pay. To pay we were not checked in on sufficiently and while food was good it really did not match up to the price tag. Given how poor the service was. They were so busy trying to set up for the next day that they didn't even pay any attention to us despite the fact that they knew it was our anniversary too. It's just ridiculous. I really wish that we had chosen to go to Bekta instead.

    Great ambiance with a violinist playing. Nice table and seating, very discreet. The food wasn’t amazing but still good. I think the price tag wasn’t worth it for the food but more for the location.

    Went here for Valentine’s Day and honestly this was the worst meal experience I have ever had. Food was awful, took forever, and there were genuinely no redeeming factors. Salad tasted sour/old, prime rib was a horrible cut of meat, desert was hard and unappetizing. Our server was nice and I felt bad for him as it seemed like every one of his tables was having just as terrible of an experience. Maybe I should just come back for brunch since that seems to be what everyone comes to this place for…

    Bread came after the appetizers which took 30 minutes, main course took over an hour and a half, bill was nearly $400 with a tip, not worth.

    First and foremost, I would genuinely like to apologize for the disappointing time you had while joining us at Wilfred's . Based on the details you provided, is far from the standards and service we pride ourselves on at Wilfrid's and Chateau Laurier. On behalf of our entire team, we would like to thank you for choosing Fairmont Chateau Laurier, yet also apologize for the experience you had. Thank you for your feedback, it is always greatly appreciated.

    Simply put, food was very good, but not excellent, to have a total bill of $350 for two people for dinner, I would expect everything to be excellent. It was overpriced in my opinion.

    Our table, view, seats and service were great. The food was not as good as I remember but sufficient nonetheless. Sometimes elevated but still simple......is better than too creative and different. Ravioli tasted like brown sugar. The cold options and the dessert options were a step above all the hot options.

    Food was not better than a regular buffet. Booked in November for four, we were sitting in an adjacent room with not windows, no ambiance and noisy.service was like at a cafeteria. Vegetable not cooked.the holiday menu promise lobster, it was serve as some salad.. Overall we paid to much for the experience. Since Covid it seems more and more difficult to find quality value restaurant.

    On New Year's Eve, the food was very good. However, the gravy was not hot enough (barely warm), and it was the only thing I was hoping to use to heat up the turkey, as it was not hot at all.

    We attended the NYE/Christmas buffet. The food was delicious, but I found that most dishes were just warm not hot. Understandable since it was buffet and we had an earlier sitting when it wasn't very busy yet. The flavours of every dish were outstanding. Good service and lovely building! Wish I could have ate more for the price but I was stuffed after 1 plate.

    The overall food was amazing. So very tasteful. Service and friendliness of the staff was consistent with Fairmont brand. The only disappointing aspect was the dessert selection. We’ve been to other Fairmont special holiday buffets with far better selection of desserts. Even other restaurants with cheaper restaurants have better desserts. This would be our only complaint.

    We are regular customers and love the ambiance and cuisine. However, this time, the service, which is normally excellent, was rather poor. Our server was very very slow. Although the server was kind and pleasant, they took far too long to clear our plates; poured coffee when we specifically said no coffee and took too long to bring tea after the meal - we waited almost 15 min after ordering and finally cancelled and asked for the bill. Also a little disappointed in our seating time. I tried to change it to a later time (online and via telephone directly with the restaurant) but were told seating was sold out. That said, the restaurant was never more than half full the entire we were there from 11:30-1:30pm… it was quite disappointing as we had an 11:30 seating but would have preferred 12:30 or 1:00pm.

    Food selection was fabulous. Made a reservation for 6 for 1:30 pm I received a telephone cal at noon warning that we should get there early ascthey were taking down buffet at 2 pm. Dont understand why they accept reservation for 1 : 30 . We rushed to get there early and stressed some of my guests which was not to have been the case if we showed up for our regular reservation time as planned. This aspect was the biggest disappointment and leaves a reluctance to book again.

    Fanatastic menu for Dickens Buffet and the service could not have been better. This was a birthday celebration for 11 people and all were very pleased. The Trees of Hope for Cheo were stunning in the lobby and I would do this again next Christmas but may visit soon again for a special quiet meal

    Wonderful! We enjoyed the Dickens lunch even more than the brunch.

    This was an excellent experience for my guests and I. Everyone of your employees -- from the man at the front door (who made room for our car in valet parking) to the waiters, cooks and front-of-house staff at Wilfrid's were helpful, polite and frightening cheerful. The entrees and side dishes were all excellent: I very much regretted that I didn't have room for a serving of turkey and my best friend was very unhappy that she had missed another entire table of desserts. My only comment on the food is that the more 'homey' desserts (bread pudding and sticky toffee puddings in particular) were the weakest of the lot. The more elegant of your desserts more than made up for that -- in fact the flourless chocolate cake and the maple fudge I can describe as 'evil' for my diet and blood sugar. But as a someone from the backwoods of Saskatchewan, I truly appreciate a good, hearty bread pudding. My husband equally regretted that there were not Quebecois desserts. I plan to be back next year and am looking forward to making it a holiday tradition. Thank you for a very enjoyable experience.
