Elegant venue for jazz

We attended the 2015 Ottawa Jazz festival's Jam in the Spin Kitchen's Bar. The room (bar) was cosy and the acoustics were adequate to provide the patrons with good sounds and interaction with the musicians. Nevertheless the room itself was narrow and the posts obstructed the view of the stage... read more

Personally, I felt that this place was very overpriced and the food was mediocre. Two of us got burgers....both overdone and pretty tasteless. One glass of wine...5 oz, I think, was $17. Ridiculous. While the waiter was nice enough, the service was incredibly slow. The restaurant was practically empty although the bar was pretty full. We waited close to one... More

We are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations from both a service and product standpoint, particularly given that the restaurant was quieter. This is not indicative to the level of standards we have set out for ourselves and our guest experience. Please allow me the opportunity to review with you the details of your experience and we can... More

The bartender was courteous and fun to watch, and as a single, made me feel a part of the crowd. The meal itself was excellent, as was the house wine. And the dessert was worth the extra calories!

While staying at the Marriott on Kent in Ottawa, we had dinner at Spin. As a family of 5 with very different eating preferences, we didn't have any trouble each finding something right for us. Kirril helped us with the selection of a few meals. One in particular that he referred to as "divine" was the roasted chicken supreme. High... More

The lounge at night. If your selling 9oz glasses of wine at the price of a bottle (about $17 dollars), your service staff should be friendly with great timing and offer suggestions, etc. Not here, it really seemed like the staff didn’t want to be there and even with a mostly empty lounge there was no speed to the service.

I had ordered a French connection sandwiches and a French onion soup via room service. The soup was certainly less than ok, it was not hot at all, I felt it was done at earlier time and reheated upon order. It was evident because the order was delivered in 20 minutes. I know it is usually the case (reheat), but... More

Had a Bramble drink and a fish & crisps appetizer - very tasty and took the edge off of my hunger. The bartender was very friendly.

I have been to Spin numerous times but my most recent trip will be my last. The menu has changed but not for the better. No more corned beef hash, their hash browns are now fast fried like MacDonalds and the service given the upper end pricing was wanting. It's probably a good place for the expensive buffet if you...
