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

I took my wife there for her birthday after I had been for business. The service was wonderful and it was a romantic, well healed restaurant. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was just great.

We are very disappointed with the place. We came all the way from Toronto to have a birthday dinner with our son and family. We called for reservations and they never answered our message that we left nor did they every pick up the phone. We decided just to go down early and when we got there we found out... More

We had a perfectly delightful meal. The chef’s work was elegant—from the nicely herbed butter, to the perfectly balanced Caesar salad to the earthy robust mushroom risotto.

Two of us Visited for a quiet dinner on a Friday night. Great table, attentive service , allergy-aware wait staff. But it's the food that always amazes. Probably my fourth visit to this restaurant. Quebec mushroom risotto to start and half lobster plate for dinner. Very flavorful. Definately one of my top two favorites in the Byward Market.

Having moved to Ottawa from Montreal, I'm happy I found this restaurant. True French cuisine was not something I thought I would miss when I moved. The steak frites here is mouth watering and the wine selection is great. This place is an easy choice when it comes to special occasions.

Private dinner for corporate event about 150 people. Pre-selected limited menu... my choice was mushroom risotto, beef tenderloin & creme brulee. The service started out a little slow, but the wine flowed freely & once service started the food was presented and tasted very good! I was hungry but everyone at my table enjoyed their meal throughly. The topper was... More
