“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

It was my pleasure to be back at Dolmus to enjoy a beautiful meal. The soup today was a carrot ginger that was smooth and creamy with just enough bite to be interesting. For my main, the scallops - oh, what a treat. And for dessert, the lemon tart...Devine. Great service and ambiance put this restaurant tops in my book.

“A sure thing in Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Had been referred by a friend. He was right, this place does it great. Had a special of Lamb confit. It was awesome. Menu is imaginative, the location is excellent and it's easy to see why you need a reservation. These are given in 15 minute intervals. That way, the service is prompt and effective. Good wine list and nice atmosphere. Friendly chefs in the open kitchen add a nice touch. Highly recommended.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Went to Domus Cafe with a group of 12 and all of us enjoyed our meals. The menu is small and I think that we had all of the main courses. All were excellent. For appetizers the soup and tomato salad were particularly outstanding. A little bit pricey but high quality food

“One of the best in Ottawa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Consistently good; great food, a nice wine list and excellent service. We had not been there in some time and were pleased to find out that it hasn`t changed.
The décor needs a little update but it`s OK as it is.

“Why don't we eat here every Friday night?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

After a fabulous meal, that was the question we asked ourselves. My husband started with the market soup - pureed egplant and tomato with a spicy cumin edge. I had the best tomato salad ever - beautiful red, room temperature beauties served with tons of fresh basil and a delightfully salty olive tapenade - oh and some crumbled goat cheese for garnish.We went on to have a perfectly medium rare steak/frites for my husband and an oh. my. god. good saddle of rabbit stuffed with mushrooms and wrapped in prosciutto for me. Unfortunately no room left for dessert. Service was outstanding,atmosphere wonderfully romantic for a rainy night. Highly recommended!
