You can't place l'Oree du Bois in any box or label it within any restaurant category... it's simply magnificent food and the ultimate foodie experience in Chelsea. The owners, Jean-Claude and his wife, will startle you with phenomenal food and attentive service... but in an ambiance without the snobbish attitude from other 5 star restaurants. They have achieved the delicate... More

We visited L'Oree du Bois on a Sunday evening in October. Our group of two couples enjoyed the atmosphere and were made to feel welcome by both our waiter and the bus boy. Three of us had an excellent shrimp bisque to start, the other member of our group had a chicken ballentin (?) salad which he enjoyed. Both of... More

Beautiful location for dining any time of the year. The service is very good. Several people at our table ordered the venison and it was hot and miss. Some were cooked well but unfortunately several, including, mine were too tough to even chew. I'd stick with the salmon if I were ordering. The service is lovely, attentive and professional. The...

We visited L'Orée du Bois over the Thanksgiving weekend, and took our son and his fiancée who had never been there. It was a wonderful evening. Service, as always, was wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable. The menu was interesting with seasonal local produce prepared in a traditional French/Quebecois fashion. Our server told me what few options I could absolutely not have,... More

Dear PAfromOttawa, Thank you for the wonderful review. It is our main concern to make sure our guests get the best dinner experience possible. We do apologize, though, for the lack of gluten-free bread that night. Please know that we always try to have gluten-free crackers or bread to accomodate our celiac customers. It is unfortunate that we probably ran... More

Our party of six enjoyed an excellent meal with attention to every detail. We were warmly greeted and attentively served. The telling service detail for us was that our waiter, Alexandre, brought the bill only when asked even though our party lingered in the dining room long after other diners had left. Alexandre recommended that we order from the Table... More

We just enjoyed a wonderful meal as part of a group event at the L'Orée du Bois. We have been there many other times but it continues to excel. Very attentive service combined with beautifully prepared and served food, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold. For a large group not an easy feat.

Cozy restaurant at the edge of Gatineau Park serving traditional French dishes. My Provençal-style escargot whipped in pesto and confied tomato coulisle was uniquely lean on butter. I ordered a duo ( not on the menu) of Confit de canard marinated in assorted herbs and pan-fried-filets d'agneau served with lamb jus. Both dishes screamed traditional as I would have liked... More

I've been here a few times over the years and we are always so pleased with the food and service. The table d'hôte I find a good value and I love that they let you substitute.
