I chose the mystery dish for both my appetizer and main course. They were both awesome! My wife had the scallops and lamb and both were amazing!
Having read the reviews and the ratings we had high expectations for our dinner... We had the bad luck to be seated next to 2 couples where the two women were sitting right beside our table and held an ongoing dialogue that could have been heard on the street... The service was adequate at best. My partner ordered a rack... More
The lunch time Fish and Chips are some of the best to be served in Ottawa. While they had run out of the listed Walleye fish, we were served a really nice piece of Haddock in its stead. The batter is light and does not overtake the fish. The chips (french fries) are home-made and cooked to be deep brown... More
We celebrated our anniversary there last night under time constraints. We had theatre tickets and had to be out of the restaurant in one hour. We began with the mushroom appetizer and cheese plate...beautifully prepared and presented. The cheese platter was artful and stocked with wonderful Quebec cheeses. We also had the mushroom appetizers chock full of wild mushrooms...amazing. We... More
This is a fabulous restaurant in an unassuming location. The service was exactly right with unobtrusive attention to all our wishes. The Bees Knees Martini is a real win! The appetizer of Oyster Mushroom and Snail tart had so many flavour options on a beautiful plating that it was a heavenly start to the meal. The maple roasted duck breast... More
Wow...what a meal...what a presentation and what great suggestions by our waiter Lucas... Started with Allium salad...the flavors in the salad were twirling in my mouth....underscribable...my main course was the maple roasted duck...again the flavors in my mouth were blending and partying for my palate.... the binofee pie (half) with the best cappuccino that i have ever had was dolcissimo......

Lovely, lively little restaurant in suburban Ottawa. Good location and we were able to find parking on a Friday evening. The menu is interesting; it was fun to try the "blind" appetizer - we weren't disappointed! We had the flat iron steak and the salmon for main courses and they were well-prepared and beautifully served. Friendly and unobtrusive service. Good... More
Always a warm welcome, always an exciting menu, updates monthly....but hold that Banofee Pie!...a chef who works to make dining out an experience...and all for a wonderful price! You will never tire of this place, promise!
Great place, friendly server, nice atmosphere and really great small dishes. My friend didn't eat shell fish- so when I ordered anything like that- I had to eat all of it. Which was easy because they were small. When I go back I will have again the gnocchi but will order it just for me. It's fluffy and delicious and... More
An all round top notch experience. All the food was cooked and presented beautifully - we tried the swordfish starter, salmon & duck mains and rounded it off with the banoffee pie and each was delicious. Rooting amongst the bin ends also unearthed the best bottle of Canadian wine of the holiday,a chardonnay - good price too - with some... More
