Went to Absinthe on April 1 to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were a large group (12), and the service – from making the reservation to paying the bill – was excellent every step of the way.

The menu is small, but that's not a bad thing. The food is fresh and locally sourced. Everyone in our group loved their meal. We'll definitely be back!

Purposefully reserved at Absinthe for a birthday celebration because of their connection to Savour Ottawa. Interesting and tasty selections on the menu; and the service was friendly, prompt and informative. I also like that you can on street park right by the restaurant.

Went for a business dinner last Thursday, March 23rd, we were seated at the front window, and the service was excellent as was the food - everyone enjoyed their menu choices. Small menu - but that is because everything is fresh!

The evening ticked all the boxes--great food, attentive and professional service, and a sense of personal touch throughout the evening. The menu is not as broad as one might find elsewhere but we'd much rather go somewhere where every choice is imaginative and excellent. We definitely recommend this restaurant.
