Would do better with a buffet. Food was OK. Gluten free bread was appreciated. I liked that they left the pot of coffee on the table.

I've only been to this place a handful of times. Mainly for quick drinks before an event in the area or at the Holiday Inn hotel. Fun staff from bartenders to waiters/waitresses. Nice atmosphere.

Graffiti's is one of our favourite places to go when we're looking for a good breakfast, especially during the week when a lot of restaurants aren't serving breakfast. There are a lot of things on the menu, but we always end up ordering eggs Benedict. These are consistently among the best we have found anywhere in the Ottawa area. The... More

Graffiti's in the Holiday Inn in Kanata's Centrum Place is always a pleasure to enjoy. The menu focusses on Italian specialities and is well worth the choice of any of their dishes. The prices are reasonable, portions large and service is leisurely. Plan to spend time with an unhurried business meeting to impress your clients or a romantic interlude. You... More

Our Server was an excellent ambassador to overcoming the slow and poor kitchen staff. We went here for a birthday brunch, but the restaurant came no where near to our expectations. There was a long wait between our order and being served. When the order did come, the eggs Benedict was raw even though we had asked them to be... More

I have been staying at the hotel for over two months on an extended business trip. I am in the restaurant for breakfast EVERY morning. This morning was, by far, the worst service to date, and that's not saying much. Service has always been mediocre. However, today was surely showing the sign it was Monday.
