This place was great! The restaurant is located inside Hotel Indigo Downtown Ottawa so if it is raining like cats and dogs outside and you want a quick bite, Phi is the place to go. They even serve Starbucks coffee! I ordered the omelette where you get to have a choice of meat and two additional ingredients, I got the... More

The Phi restaurant inside the Hotel Indigo Ottawa is a nice place to have lunch or dinner. I enjoyed several lunches and in particular the Caesar salad with grilled chicken.

We were staying in Ottawa Residence Inn Downtown and on a cold winter night decided to try Phi which is in the adjacent Indigo Hotel and can be reached without venturing outside. Overall the meal was okay but the billing of a gourmet restaurant is overdone. The salads ( a beet salad and a Caesar) were large, fresh the the... More

A few months ago I visited this restaurant while staying at the hotel. The steak was surprisingly good but the service was terrible. This time around the food was hit and miss but the service was consistently bad. There were 3 tables and a total of 6 people in the restaurant when I was there and it was hard to... More

The servers were great but the food was okay. It was average priced for Ottawa, small portions and not great but it was convenient. Indigo Hotel and the Marriott are connected and this place is located in Indigo just off the Lobby. Small place but nicely decorated and comfy arm chairs.

There was no one in this restaurant but it was in my hotel so I thought I would try it out. My meal was really well done and I was quite surprised. Unfortunately the server appeared to be also delivery room service so service was sporadic. There were other servers but again getting noticed was slow. I would eat there... More

The bar tender was rude and dismissive. They were "out of chicken" and also "out of pizza crust" - meaning no pizza, which is a major part of the menu! Very odd for 6 pm. I simply departed
