My husband and I flew from Victoria to Ottawa, and my sister raved about this restaurant!! It was a good drive but the area reminded me of a quaint little resort village. Serve was great, perfect amount of time between or appetizer & entree's! Our server, was very patient, as our French is quite rusty, we found out she was... More

We drove from Ottawa . The drive was about 45 minutes but well worth the drive. The Champignon Rack consisted of 5 different mushrooms . It was excellent. The scallop dish that I ordered was superb. Huge scallops nicely seared and tasty .

I love going to this restaurant. With an seasonal changing menu, you always get something new. They offer a delicious table d'hote and an accompanying wine pairing if you wish. Their wine selection is good and rages taht are not overpriced. The atmosphere is excellent and their service is exceptionnal. A must if you love delicious food.

Celebrated our daughters graduation in June 2014 and chose this restaurant for its beautiful setting in the Gatineau Park. I had not eaten here in a very long time and it did not disappoint. I had the Mixed Green salad with goat cheese, fantastic!. Others had the Carmelized Onion soup and it was also fantastic. As a main course, 2... More

Enjoyed the food overall, found the Table D'hôte to have a nice variety, and lots of flexibility. We were in a large group, and started dinner at 6 pm, and placed our orders at about 6:20pm. My impression was that our waitress just didn't know how to manage the service cycle of a large table. We would finish a course,... More

We have not been back for quite sometime. A big mistake, the successor of Chef Blain does an amazing job. Using mostly local and regional products. The table d'hote is a bargain for the quality served. We decided to go a la carte. We shared a feuillete of Coprin mushrooms and Sauteed foie gras on brioche. Both perfect. I ordered... More

We ate here May 18/14. We eat out regularly.....including some of the best in Toronto. This place has them beat...no question. Service: top notch, personal and very helpful. Food: absolutely fantastic, flavour is right on, portion size perfect. I had the filet, my wife had the scallops, and both were delicious....it left us wanting to lick our plates....However, we were... More

This continues to be a gourmet restaurant. We all had a truffle dish followed by lamb- both were excellent. The table d'hôte was $44 and we were allowed tot substitute dishes. The service was friendly and fluently bilingual. The prices for wine were exorbitant- this May deter me from returning.

My first dinner here was probably thirty years ago, and thankfully, little has changed! The traditional menu, the service, and the surroundings are all perfect, and the prices continue to be excellent value. Also, it can't be more than a twenty minute drive from downtown Ottawa, with plenty of parking. What is different in Spring 2014 is a four course... More
