Went in with a group after a business meeting. We got seated right away and enjoyed the light show at Parliament Hill from our table.
We ordered blackened salmon and vegetation lasagna . The food was excellent, along with fresh bread and homemade deserts it was outstanding.

We were a little tired when we walked up to the hostess an asked for a reservation, that all changed when (I believe Jennifer ) said you can be seated right now . We were seated right away, my 5 year old son was immediately asked if he would like to color. Jennifer was a very attentive hostess and made my son feel very comfortable! Our waiter Christopher was wonderful and earned every penny . Very seasoned waiter checked on our table , brought refills , was extremely nice to my son and my parents (one has hearing problems) and was extremely descriptive about the menu as we were not quite sure what we wanted he helped in the selection. I was very impressed with my blackened salmon , as was my mother with her salmon burger. My son ate all but a piece of broccoli and said his sweet potatoes were the best! The view was amazing and the evening was so pretty it made the entire meal the very best part of the trip! We will be back soon just for the great service!

On a brisk and sunny summer day, with a grand view of Parliament, its library, the Rideau Canal Locks, the Ottawa River, and the National War Memorial all at the same time while under the protective shadow of the Chateau Laurier, a Bleau's draft beer and a Canadian cheese platter made it seem like heaven. It is, however, open only in late summer. As the young waitress pointed out, it can get to thirty below zero in Ottawa in the winter......

I am surprised no one mentioned this outdoor dining option to us. We stumbled upon it, almost by accident and what a lucky find! The Fairmont Chateau Laurier is a beautiful and grand building that sits on the Rideau Canal and is next to Parliament. The outdoor terrace, La Terrasse, is a striking enclave on the canal with stunning views of Parliament, the canal, and the Ottawa River. At night, you can see some of the laser light show at Parliament.

The terrace was not crowded, it is set off the street so it is peaceful and quiet, the staff is very friendly and courteous, the food was very good. I don't know why this restaurant isn't recommended more for it's location and ambiance..?? It is a treasure.
