I went there for breakfast. I ordered blueberry pancake, which was a pancake with lots of blueberries. I really liked it. So, I went there again for breakfast on the following day. I ordered the blueberry pancake again. Unfortunately, they just put blueberries on the top of plain pancakes. I told a waiter it's not a blueberry pancake. A waiter... More

If you're looking for a bit of an upper scale breakfast venue head to Metropolitan Brasserie on Sussex! I ordered the asparagus and egg breakfast plate and everything was cooked to perfection. The service was awesome and the decor of the brasserie is classic! They also have a nice outdoor pation facing the Rideau Centre. Cheers!

My wife, two kids and I were visiting Ottawa for race weekend and being a stone's throw from Quebec wanted to eat at a French bistro while we were in town. Metropolitan Brasserie did the trick- despite its mixed ratings here on TripAdvisor we had a wonderful experience and would return again. The service was top notch and we were... More

The restaurant was very accommodating with us. There was seven of us in the group. We first made reservations for Saturday evening then we had to change them to Friday evening and there was no problem to change the reservations. The restaurant was very loud; sometimes we could not hear each other. Some of the people in the group had... More

What a nice way to start my friend's birthday. We decided to sit outside as it was a beautiful sunny day. We all enjoyed our food, and our waitress took very good care of us. I went with the "Metro Bene" which I would recommend, but hurry because I heard they take it off the menu for the summer because... More

We had a client event in May 2014 in the Byward market and the Metropolitan Brasserie accommodated 30 people for after-dinner drinks. It was a beautiful night to sit outside and enjoy being in the heart of Ottawa. The service was excellent. Our server made everyone feel right at home - he was very attentive to our guests and his...

Went with 2 friends, we all really enjoyed our food. I had the Coquille St. Jacques and it was awesome. Would highly recommend it. We also shared crab cakes which were really yummy. Brian and Bill wait on us, and both are excellent waiters. It is almost impossible to request the waiter you want before you go (trust me, I... More

Very good restaurant. The menue has many choices all with a French twist. We had mussels,steak frites,rabbit,and artic char. Everything was well presented and tasteful. Good service and an upbeat casual atmosphere. The only fault was that the frites were frozen and not fresh cut. No excuse for frozen in a quality bistro.

April 7, 2014 Lunch with sister. Their menue is great. We had tartar, frissé with eggs and pancetta, cheeze plate, oyster and of course a good wine at $45. The food was fantastic but the price is a bit high. The waiter Jeffrey is amassing. He really tried to speak French most of the time. He knows is job and... More
