My husband and I have been wanting to go to Fraser for a year... we finally managed to go---it did not disappoint. We started with incredible starters. The shrimp tasted like lobster!!! The service was impeccable. Chadi went above and beyond expectations. He was attentive and informative. Our main dishes were mins blowing. The duck breast was cooked to perfection.... More

Our food was really good and the service was excellent. I had the smoked trout which was wonderful and my son (10) had the poached eggs.

Have eaten lunch here three times over the past few months. Each time the service and food achieve a high standard. Food is innovative without being pretentious. Prices are very affordable for the high quality of food being served. Tables are a bit crowed together, but not really a problem. Will happily return any time again.

The food was excellent. I really can't find anything bad to say. The service is great. My drink was perfect- not sweet.we started off with the foie Gras. It was great. I like those of 'aubegiste' better but that's just a personal opinion and how each was paired and cooked. Right now it's between a 5.1 and 5. So the... More

Reservation time was respected. An anniversary dinner with excellent food. Salad to start. Chief's surprise was a pork dish, the other main course was scallops. Both were perfect. Server suggested a very good wine to compliment the pork dish.

Great restaurant, the chefs specials are always different and are always better than the last. The only downside is they use a lot of salt in the cooking, you'll be bloated after eating a big meal.

Celebrating my daughters birthday with Sunday brunch at Fraser Cafe. This was the first time for all of us. Our reservation was for 12:30 and the restaurant was jam packed. The brunch menu is not overwhelmingly extensive although it has a good variety, which I appreciate. Half of us chose the Scrambled Eggs (cheese curds/potato/house sausage/tomato) and the other half... More

My wife, daughter (37 years old ) and I visited this East End restaurant after receiving a gift certificate gift and high praises from our older daughter and son in law. The location is deceptive as it is off Beechwood Ave ( formerly Vanier Area ) and not really situated in a a trendy restaurant area...BUT... that is starting to... More

I have eaten here about 5 times. Tonight, I got a reservation on short notice. The food and ambience were amazing. I was seated quickly and told about the specials . The kitchen surprise was wonderful as always. My only complaint was that we waited 18 minutes to get our bill paid. Other tables were being served and bills processed... More
