Maybe not for the Machomen, but for the Girls - Yum!

Have been for lunch several times and supper a couple. Only caveat is that it is an old house and therefore conversation can be difficult with noise reverberating. if I was being executed tomorrow, would be eating their smoked trout tonight!

We had an enjoyable dinner for a larger group at their "Table 40" private function room. The service was friendly and the food was good. (The beef tenderloin was outstanding). The acoustics are however quite hard in the room, and is was a bit difficult for us to find parking for our car.

Attended a business dinner in their private room "Table 40." It is a great place to have a business dinner since it's quite private and have large screens to see presentations. The staff was extremely friendly. The food was good and the service was just slow. If invited to have dinner there again, I'll definitively try it again.

Last night we went for dinner. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. The sidestripe shrimp was amazing! The steak was incredible and my surprise chef's meal was delicious. Will definitely be back. Highly recommended! Only minor negative thing we can think of was the sour dough bread was a little dry.

The servers were attentive, quick and efficient always with a pleasant smile. The atmosphere was perfect for supper, great music playing in the background with a... More

While visiting my daughter in Ottawa, she recommended Fraser Cafe for a quiet dinner in a small but intimate setting. Although small, the close quarters weren't really a distraction. Having said that, it can become a bit loud but adds to a lively atmosphere. The server was friendly and accommodating and the food was above average. We opted for the... More
