From the open kitchen to the intimate and quirky d'école to the crazy beverage list contained in Campbell cookbooks. Seating in nooks and crannies make for a memorable visit. The service is terrific and is only surpassed by the fine food produced by the kitchen staff. So excited to showcase little Gems in Ottawa to my out of town coworkers... More

The octopus appetizer the best of the best compared to Greece and Turkey, but not Alexandria Egypt, still a delicatessen savourus tasty. Raw tuna is next, quails excellent, and oysters from whalebones always fresh.For the main menu let the Chef chose the surprise menu. You will never get disappointed. You have to make reservation ahead. The Frasers brothers I salute... More

I live outside of Ottawa and wanted to treat my sister and her fiance to a special dinner ahead of their wedding. I rang ahead a few weeks to book a table and asked that a bottle of sparkling wine be ready for us when we get there. They accommodated my request and were so lovely the whole evening. The... More

I had not been to this place in years. The only two times I had been in the past were for brunch...which was excellent. This time it was my birthday and I chose to dine here. It isn't possible to have chosen a better place. I was absolutely thrilled with my dinner! When I opened the menu I was a... More

Finding a popular restaurant that was open for Sunday dinner in Ottawa proved to be a real challenge. Fraser Cafe was a great choice. Delicious appetizers ~ if a bit pricey; pork dumplings, grilled octopus, raw oysters, sautéed scallops with tuna fritters - and a big leafy green salad with Asian dressing.... Everyone loved the flavours and size of their... More

Enjoyed Fraser Cafe's Brunch menu. Busy spot so sat at the bar given no reservations. Had one of the best brunches ever; Panzanella Salad with a Scotch egg. Fresh produce and delicious dressing. The scotch egg was unbelievably amazing; nicely cooked and flavorful. My friends enjoyed theirs as well one with Huevos Rancheros and the other the Japanese dish (can't... More

Omg....what a fabulous experience. This place was recommended by friends. The restaurant is very small, so a reservation is needed. The kitchen is open so you can see what is happening. The chef's special is awesome because the chef will make something different for each person. So, it was a unique dining experience. The homemade ice cream and donuts were... More

I wanted to host about 30 close friends and family members to a special anniversary for my wife. One of my daughters recommended Table 40 at Fraser Cafe. I, as well as our guests, were not disappointed by the choice. We shared good times and an excellent meal, served by two attentive and dedicated members of the Fraser Cafe's team.... More

Our Ottawa friends brought us to Fraser for dinner. They visit this restaurant often. Surroundings were very pleasant. Open kitchen environment. I'm always leary of a waiter who takes four orders - appetizers and main courses - without writing anything down. This waiter didn't disappoint. He got the main course order wrong and my main course was delivered when the... More
