A silky spectacular meal unlike anything really that I have had in Ottawa, and I am not easy to please. Incredible 4 course lunch and each dish was done to perfection. Cannot wait to go back. Oh, and exemplary service too :)

The Table d'hote lunch changes weekly -- three courses (two choices) of Cordon Bleu deliciousness for $34. Perfect for group meetings in a very pleasant atmosphere with excellent service and exquisite food.

Food was alright. Scallops were over cooked and I didn’t love the escargot but the risotto was very good. The service was great and it’s a lovely location.
