My husband and I tried Allium after hearing about it from friends. We both loved our appetizers and main courses. My husband ordered the surprise dishes and liked them all. I was not as adventurous but loved my food (I tried the Snow Crab cake and Albacore Tuna for main and Beet Cured Salmon for appetizer). We also tried a... More

We had been hearing about Allium for several years now, and it had been recommended by several foodie friends. My wife and I were at a matinee at the theatre around the corner, so we came here for dinner. The atmosphere is minimalist, but we'll done and modern. The background music was really good! The service was both knowledgeable and... More

I recently re-visited this cute spot just off the beaten track in Westboro and was pleasantly surprised. The dishes were well presented, food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would not hesitate to return.

Our friends took my boyfriend and I here for dinner on a Saturday night. When we called to make reservations a few days ahead they did not have any tables free till after 9pm. We asked them to call us if any tables opened up and they did as promised and we were able to have dinner at 8pm. When... More

The girl at the door, welcomed us and hung our coats in the closet. I hadn't been here in some year and the interior is very nice. The service was excellent by a nice young man. We had asked to have the owner/chef sign our "Ottawa Cooks" book, which by the way they are also selling them here, and he... More

If you are in Ottawa and looking for fine food and fine service ( not always easy to find both), Allium in Ottawa's west end is the place to go. We were there the other night ( 4 of us all family members) and thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered from appetizers to mains to dessert. It was all served with... More

We returned to Allium last week after a one year absence and really enjoyed our meal. The Mushrooms on Toast appetizer is one of their signature dishes and it did not disappoint. The Crispy Eggplant, a new-to-us appetizer, was different and very tasty. My companions ordered the Pork Loin, prepared sous vide, and reported that it was very good. No... More

Allium is worth the extra expense. Whether it be Mondays tapas menu, with the chefs surprise selections or the monthly dinner menu, you will not be disappointed. Great friendly attentive service, good variety excellently prepared and presented!

Our first time there with friends yesterday. So the reviews were interesting and worth a drive out to see what this restaurant has to offer. Our reservation for 4 was at 7:00PM. I was a little concerned when I noticed more than half of the tables empty, but being a Thursday, maybe people were coming out a little later for... More
