We looked forward to the experience and chose the wine paring. The 12 course meal accompanied by wines included some innovative (at least to us) servings that we considered "food art." As far as taste - not much made an impression. We considered the wine...More

What a meal - so well presented - just want to work there for free to learn how they do it The Halibut and Potato Spiral with bacon was amazing - the dessert of the Dandelion and Rhubarb Tombstone was beyond amazing

The evening was also entertaining, thanks to the in-house sommelier who introduced...More

The 12 courses in this blind tasting were creative and delicious. I had the half wine pairing with my tasting and it definitely enhanced the dishes.

I'm embarrassed that a restaurant like this exists in Ottawa. Set price dinner menu at $250 for two, a ridiculously marked up wine list & a dead dull venue! A fine restaurant is judged upon quality of food served, service provided & atmosphere. With the...More

It's a great spot for couples or groups, but I would recommend this restaurant for adults only. The meal is 4-5 hours long and there is no choice in the menu except for dietary restrictions. That said, the restaurant has... More
