“Very Dissappointed”

A'Lure Aquarium Bar
Ranked #27 of 98 Restaurants in Ottawa
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 26, 2018 via mobile

Two couples out for a birthday celebration that ended with 3 of us being very dissappointed. The decor & our waitress were both great, but that’s where the compliments end. One of our party ordered the fried cod and was happy with their choice. Three of us ordered the Shrimp Boil and felt we had wasted our money. First & foremost it had absolutely no flavor. It was like they dumped all the ingredients in a pot of water with no seasonings & boiled the heck out of it. The shrimp was like rubber, the corn was not fresh & the potatoes were mushy. The sausage was the only edible part of the boil. These owners need to seriously step up their game if they want to make it in a town full of great restaurants.

We where in town for the mushroom festival and came in here afterwords. We sat at the very neat fish tank bar. We sat and watched the fish and had a few drinks. The place seamed clean. The bartender was friendly enough.

Upon entering I had to take a look at the aquarium bar which is such a unique feature. The decor is very appropriate and inviting! The service and food were fantastic! I love corn nuggets and tend to have a hard time finding those on most menus. My lemon drop drink was delicious! I cannot wait when the weather is warmer, to enjoy the patio out back! We will be back! I hope others will support this nice establishment!

A group of 6 of us visited for cocktails the night before Thanksgiving and had a great time. Drinks were well mixed and tasty, everyone enjoyed their cocktails. We didn’t eat, but were certainly tempted to, food smelled and looked great. All in all a really funky little spot with a great aquarium bar. Will definitely visit again when in the area!
