“Relaxing setting for dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We went for dinner after viewing the Winterlude ice sculptures. The decor is chic and the staff were quite personable and attentive. We both chose pasta dishes; they looked appealing and were tasty. We had wine with dinner. While we enjoyed our meals and the wine, we both felt that they were overpriced.

“Good food, mediocre ambiance and character”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

By reading the description and seeing the photos on thier web site you are led to believe its quite a fancy restaurant. Not to mention the very high price line. Dont get me wrong, the food was very good but does this place ever need a facelift. It is like walkkng into a Dennys !!

“Mediocre food, SLOW service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Ate here a Tuesday evening in a group, but there were only about 4 tables occupied. Despite this it took over an hour for the main after the appetizer. The main, taken from the fixed menu was excellent, but the desert was disappointing.
Service too slow, I'd worry if it was actually a busy night.

“Grillin' and Chillin' in the Nation's Capital!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I had a friend visit from Toronto recently and decided to use a coupon I had for the comfy and cozy Grill 41 at the historic Lord Elgin. Dinner was booked last Saturday at the civilized hour of
7:30pm. After a day of slushing and slopping around on the wet Ottawa streets- the warm welcome received at this traditional grill house was appreciated and needed.

Lots of good food, good wine, great ambience and conversation. All complemented by your
very knowledgeable and charming server, Fletcher( who by the way is 6"3", short compared to PEI Chef Michael Smith,) which he pointed out!

Perfect way to spend a cold, wet, January evening in the Nation's Capital- and no dishes to wash, bonus! Will definitely be back.

“Breakfast Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Ate at the buffet for two days as it was included in the hotel package while staying at the Lord Elgin. The staff was very friendly and had good service, brought you OJ and coffee right away. The food was pretty average for a breakfast buffet, noting special.
