Earlier this week I was looking for a restaurant in downtown Ottawa that had a private room that we could hold a Board of Directors working dinner. Of course, I went to Trip Advisor and looked around. What I found was a hidden gem of a restaurant that I have already recommended to multiple friends.
I phoned the restaurant on Sunday and the phone was answered, it turns out, by a manager who had the restaurant phone call forwarded to his cell. After explaining that I was looking for someplace for our Board to have a working meeting and be able to spread documents around in private, he said they had a nice room they could reserve for us.
When the Board arrived we were situated in the room and the excellent food and service commenced. The servers (they assigned two servers even though there were only four of us) were professional, discrete and respectful of their timing. Service started with a lovely bruschetta that arrived without our having even opened the menu - nice touch!
The food was excellent and all four of us loved the various plates we ordered. My only complaint was that the serving of chicken parmigiana they gave me was way too big (but my wife loved the surprise when I brought it home later that night).
All in all an outstanding meal and I will certainly be going back, this time with my wife!
