We went for the Sunday brunch to celebrate an 18th birthday. We were given the window table requested, the food selection and quality was excellent, as was the friendly service. The birthday dessert plate was a nice touch. This is a fairly expensive brunch, but well worth it for special occasions.

They brought us super nice birthday dessert plate, which made our day special!
Only thing was that table was really shaky and every time we use knife, it shakes.

Booked the restaurant through the Open Table App. Specifically added that it was a very special occasion, my wife’s birthday, and that we wanted a table with a view of the parliament. None of these were known by the restaurant.

Overall we enjoyed our lunch. Karl our waiter was beyond excellent; friendly, helpful, attentive, knowledgeable and informative. He was there when required but not overbearing, just right. When I told him it was my wife’s birthday Karl prepared a lovely surprise.

Comfortable surroundings and reasonably good good but not outstanding.

At the end of the lunch we were not able to order another drink and we were advised to bar called Zoe’s. We did go ther but it was cold and impersonal and we did not stay.

I asked for coffee at the end of the meal and it was served from a flask. My view test in a restaurant if this calibre my coffee would have been fresh.

I would go back for lunch but not necessarily rush there.

Good and service were excellent. Decor was not bad, but for the price range and class of hotel I do expect table cloth.

We have booked to have supper twice a year once on my birthday December and one in June for our anniversary. We were married at the chateau Laurier Year’s who. We have time and again asked for table by the window. I cannot count the number of times this was not fulfilled. Very sad and disappointing. Many wonderful restaurants in Ottawa. And to repeatedly not get a table by the window when it was requested at time of booking.

It was a christmas brunch with my team from work. Everyone took the buffet option. The food was really good. There was lots of choice! We received good service from the hostess, the cook, and the waitress. Everyone was satisfied with the brunch. Thank you!
