I've had both breakfast (a-la-cart and buffet) and lunch here. Food was good with each visit, and service is always pleasant. Love the convenience of it being in the hotel as well.

Pros: great location in Kanata'a business park. Beautiful restaurant. Option to sit on the patio and overlook the golf course. Very good food. Great and speedy service. Not usually busy, this is a great lunch spot. Can get in and out quickly and has great food. Tip: if it's a rainy day, park underground for free.

We were with our Best of Friends. Eduardo was our waiter and he was more than kind and patient with us. Roly was also there to make sure all our needs were met. Michaela was our hostess and she was a lovely bright face to greet us. Food was very good. Only suggestion is maybe a broader menu or a... More

Food was really over the top as far as quality goes, my steak tasted fresh as ever! Also the restaurant harboured an inviting and relaxing environment that is quite relaxing. Servers were great but not excellent as our main server wasn't always around, and the food took around 45 mins to come out from ordering. Also the food was very... More

Friends who live in Ottawa suggested it. They were very disappointed in this visit. 1/2 hour wait until the server approached us. Service throughout was poor, but food was very good. So, 4 stars for quality of foods and 2 for the service.

Amazing 5 star steaks. I got the Rib eye (a little expensive but...) it was unreal. Cooked to perfection with deep fried mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. My GF got the NY sirloin and it too was amazing. We got a salad to start and it was something like you see on TV, prepared so nicely and the taste was... More

$9.99 for a buffet breakfast. Oh wait, coffee is an additional $2.95. Want juice? That'll be another $2.95! Worst idea ever!

Description
Experience a fresh perspective and be inspired by Executive Chef Lyness' contemporary cuisine. Perspectives Restaurant offers a menu enriched with simple, healthy ingredients from local suppliers within the Ottawa Valley and Ontario. From creative cooking techniques fused with exceptional ingredients to the contrasting flavours paired with our extensive wine list, each dish represents the culinary style that is unique to Perspectives. Our atmosphere is modern and inviting, delivering care and attention from the kitchen to the table. In the summer months, our spacious patio offers one of the best views in the city overlooking The Marshes golf course and the Gatineau Hills. For those with a larger party, the private dining room offers a more intimate setting, yet the restaurant energy is still cultivated through its glass walls. At Perspectives we aspire to offer you the very best in contemporary cuisine and casual dining providing choice, flexibility, and value.
