“only OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

The food was average and the service left a lot to be desired even though it was not crowded. We were pretty disappointed

“Bad service!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Got our food an hour later with a black hair on it! Disgusting!
Should have given the meal for free!!!
The service was really bad! The water was refilled once in an hour and was warm in a hot day. Will never go back!

“great menu, good beer selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

We went here on the recommendation from another restaurant as they said they had good food and a good beer selection. They were right on both accounts, though we only tried a few of the taps. The dinner portions were a good size, and they had a great selection of desserts. Overall great service, excellent location.

“Lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

We had dinner there in June 2012. We chose their Charcuterie board (very good and great presentation) and some specials, good wine selection. Overall - a great experience and atmosphere! We will certainly come back when next time in Ottawa.

“One of my favourite places”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

I love this restaurant, and have never had a bad experience here! I have eaten here only once since I found out I have celiac disease, and our server was very helpful and checked everything I wanted to order. I was a bit disappointed though, because after making sure my food was gluten free, my mussels came with garlic bread on top... Their lunch deal is great value, and incredibly enjoyable. I am looking forward to going back the next time I'm in Ottawa.
