In Byward market on York Street. Great decor inside, with a wonderful menu and wine list and we had excellent service. Very good food. Our group had the black cod and everyone loved it. I had a Caesar with duck, which was excellent and the crab cakes, also very good.

made an online reservation, added a note about it being my sisters birthday and arrived on time. our waitress had 6 other tables and it was a quiet evening. after 40 minutes without even had our wine order taken , we walked out. the server was surly and unkind and I wished I never booked here in the first place.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Appetizers: Mushroom Risotto (cold but ate it) & we sent back our Foie Gras as it was stone cold in the middle. Then our Rib Eye Steak came out over cooked and cold to the touch. When we complained to our waiter he essentially sneered at us. We left without eating our... More

This restaurant has it all - fresh, creative and flavourful food, fabulously competent and attentive service and a relaxing yet sophisticated atmosphere. We chose the Chefs Tasting Menu and wine pairing. The amuse bouche was a succulent ginger coconut shrimp with roasted peanut. This was followed by a charcuterie board with a masterful balance of sweet, savoury and salty. Up... More

This is a good restaurant: nice atmosphere in a nice part of Ottawa (Byward Market) and they serve excellent food and wines (good selection of Canadian wine). We had very tasty crab cake as a starter and the Angus beef as a main, all tasted very good. Desserts was “European sized” and delicious.

Thoroughly enjoyed a three course meal that should be recognized as signature dishes: Quebec Wild Mushroom Risotto, Lamb Chops and Chocolate Peanut Butter bar. Absolutely exquisite and well worth the fine dining cost. Great wine menu selection and atmosphere was excellent. Large party came in, but with heavy tapestry drapes pulled across the back end of the restaurant you would... More

Date night couldn't have been better! If you want to impress someone special, this IS the place to go... Started with the crab cake (she had the ravioli) and followed with the lamb. Seriously, the best Shepherd's Pie I've ever had. (She had the salmon). We shared the toffee pudding since we were both fully satisfied. Ambience was great. Service... More

Been there 2 weeks ago with another couple for our birthdays. Been there often before to celebrate our birthdays. This time very disappointed. The steak 7 on, was 52.00 $ , plus prices for all the extras except for two. Wine very expensive also. My husband was still hungry after this small steak! No other size, and very ordinary. One...

Went on a very wet evening for a dinner with 2 colleagues. One had a meeting 1 1/2 hours later, but felt she had enough time. Ordered drinks, and when the cocktail and glass of wine arrived, we suddenly realized that the cocktail had disappeared again. After about 5 or 10 minutes, went to ask at the bar, and the... More
