I took my wife to the Fraser Café for a great birthday dinner last week! She enjoyed her BBQ Beef Striploin and my Kitchen's Choice Main turned out to be a very tasty Lingcod with a peach compote and slaw. We finished off with the Strawberry & Rhubarb pie for two. A wonderful celebratory evening with delicious food and very... More

My boyfriend and I come here every so often on a date and each time we are always extremely pleased. The dinning experience is wonderful. The environment is always calm and inviting. Food could not be anymore amazing. I have never left disappointed of the 5 times we have been. Highly recommended for a date night.

We arrived a little before noon yesterday.There was no line up but it was quite busy inside. Got seated immediately. Waitress offered to get us a beverage to start. Nice décor and nice atmosphere. Quite the eclectic brunch menu. Ordered the Huevos Ranchero, my spouse ordered the poached eggs with hollandaise and our friend ordered the yoghurt pancakes. We did... More

Not my first visit, but my first as a half a couple hoping to share a quiet lunch experience. My companion and I had an excellent lunch - generous servings, presented well with excellent service (smoked trout as a main course, doughnuts for dessert come especially recommended) but the experience was not memorable due to the cacophony surrounding us. If... More

Fraser is always great. I go there almost once a month. Always well cooked, friendly service, nothing bad to say about it. I will keep going here.

The event was organized by the wonderful staff at Books on Beechwood. Our menu was described as having 3 courses but in reality was 5. Each was fabulous, with interesting tastes and textures and attractively presented family style. The staff was courteous, attentive and accommodating, especially to the vegetarians attending the event who had beautiful dishes whipped up for them... More

Based on good reviews, we were delighted with our lunch choice of on a recent trip to Ottowa. The food was very good and the waitress was very attentive. We found a place to park on the street, as the lot was a little tight. Would definitely return next time I am in the area.

We visited the Fraser Cafe last Thursday with 2 other couples and we had a great time. Our server was very accommodating and allowed us time to chat and casually view the menu. She explained all of the dishes but wouldn't reveal the Kitchen Surprise no matter how many questions were asked. The food was superb - amazing tastes, perfectly... More
