“The BEST in Ottawa/Gatineau PERIOD”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

OK, lots of places to eat in Ottawa. NONE can come close to this one. This is the finest dining experience in the area. Seasonal Canadian menus with classic french style. I have a theory about this place too... It's in the casino which makes a LOT of money and must sustain a 4-5 star restaurant to appeal to the "high rollers"...this means it's probably subsidized to a point. To the customer this means VALUE...despite the unavoidably high price of dining here...I feel it would be an extra 50% if it was a stand alone establishment. They have the best wine list in the area to accompany great ideas that come from the team of chefs at Le Baccara. If you want to experience the "scene" that is a French kitchen brigade like in "Ratatouille" then you must go here. Sometimes they even have an NAC Harpsichord playing in the background. For me, ANY excuse to go to Le Baccara is a good excuse. I think the last time it was mowing the lawn...LOL....

“A Family Favorite”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

When we have something to celebrate, like a 25th wedding anniversary, we always choose Le Baccara. The service alone is decadence. If you need to be treated like royalty then this restaurant is for you. From start to finish it is an event, not just a meal. The food is equisite and the details are worth every penny.

Situated inside the Casino, the food is excellent and the service is even better. Expensive, but for special occasions, it's the place to go.

“The best in Ottawa!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

The only place on my 50th Birthday wish list! I only wish I had the budget to wine and dine there more often. Fantastic food, service and wine list for us collectors.
