Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful service. With an elegant atmosphere . Service was prompt and quiet lovely. Our steak dinners were perfectly cooked to order. Pricey but worth every penny. Hope to be back soon.

WOW! On our 2-week vacation, Winnipeg to Ottawa, we ate over 18 meals out (including three diners in Ottawa), this was, by a wide margin, the very best. The charming, period based, exterior wrap, reveals the prize of an intimate historic interior, providing exceptional eye...candy, uniquely created, only to enhance the food and service experience inside. Like a luscious dark chocolate Holiday treat. We could not possibly give this wonderful restaurant a higher recommendation.More

Ate here twice, both times the food and service was great. Their old fashioned and espresso martinis were great. The filet mignon and rib eye were also cooked perfectly. It nice that it's not an enormous steakhouse so it didn't feel overly busy and super...loud, was a good atmosphere.More

Zak and his team were nothing short of outstanding. We had not been at this property for some time and have forgotten what a really great place it is. Say enough good things about this restaurant. On arrival we were greeted by Zak who continued...to take care of is throughout the evening. he knew the menu well and was objective in offering suggestions. Our meals were in a word, 'outstanding' and the service was flawless. There were a number of interesting touches that really impressed us, amongst those was (1) the fact that serving tongs were given when we were having larger servings of salad and meat., (2) the delightful birthday desserts, (3) the doggie bag for the bone, that our yellow lab thoroughly enjoyed, and (4) that Zak was at the door as we were leaving and gave a genuine 'thank you' for our being there. Thank you Zak for making a special evening memorableMore

One of the best meals we had ever had, anywhere. Exemplary service, great wine list, and everything we ate was spectacular. Special mention: the octopus appetizer, which was incredibly tender and delicious.

Beautiful setting, the entrance door is a work of art and the interior is a combination of chic modern contrasting with exposed brick. Service was not lightning quick, but this is a place to linger. It is better not to dwell on prices as they...are high, but the price reflects the quality. The dishes we had were absolutely excellent, wines by the glass offer great options. Desserts were good but not historic. Highly recommend.More

I had the five course chef’s tasting menu with wine pairing. From the start it was clear the team was invested in us and this experience. Jason and his team were so passionate about each dish. It was clear the chefs put so much thought...and care into each dish. The platings were works of art, the descriptions masterful, the parings perfection. I have dined at this restaurant many times, but this was beyond any culinary experience I have had in Ottawa. I highly recommend this!!More

This is my go to place for celebrations. Took the team out for a much delayed Christmas dinner. The staff were wonderful and clearly glad to have clients back in greater numbers. The mains and dessert were ok but didn't have the finesse of pre-pandemic....The octopus was overdone and the risotto just didn't have a lot of flavour.More

They are offering a special Christmas brunch here on Sundays in December. Served in several "waves" of platters of food, it essentially presents a buffet to each table. Exceptional food, warm and professional serice - what a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season!

Incredibly outstanding food and service! We enjoyed the steak tartare, seared fois gras, châteaubriant and several desserts. The best meal we have had in ages! The service was attentive and absolutely exceptional from the moment we walked in to the very last second. The atmosphere...was absolutely lovely - as always. We can’t wait to return!More

Came to this restaurant for two reasons, three minutes walk from my hotel and it's on the 11th spot recommended by Tripadvisor. I really like the interior design! From hostess to server to busboy were all very friendly and professional. Food was good but not...exceptional, price was a little on the high side, but tell me what is not these days? Over all I would give 4 stars out of 5More

We went to this restaurant with our sons to celebrate my husband's birthday and were extremely disappointed. We were told by friends that this is an excellent steak and seafood restaurant and had very high expectations. We ordered steak (which was very good, but extremely...expensive), fish (mediocre), lobster (ok), and I ordered grilled octopus. First arrived the steak and the fish, and it took a long time for the rest of the dishes to arrive. When the octopus arrived, it was totally BURNT! After I returned the dish, I was promised to get another one; when it finally arrived, it was also burnt, and the dish was half the size... We were offered free dessert and the octopus dish was removed from the bill, but the whole experience was a huge disappointment, and one of our worst dining experiences. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone!More

Probably $100 to $125 for two people with an appetizer and main course each, but without alcohol.
