We had another great mealWe had another great meal at Le Cafe. As always the food was excellent and the service outstanding. We had plenty of time for the lovely meal and to get to our seats upstairs for our Pops performance.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAppreciated the multi-grainAppreciated the multi-grain bread & not just white baquette. I enjoyed my arctic char but my husband did not like his choice of venison. More choices for the table d'hote would be better bc it only included arctic char, venison & a vegatarian option.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTwo of us split a salad appetizerTwo of us split a salad appetizer and a main. The kitchen plated both dishes separately for us. We really appreciated that (since many kitchens refuse to go that extra step).8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial lunchFor a special anniversary meal the lunch at le Cafe was perfect.

And service from our waiter, Michael was excellnt.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious meal.We were the happy group of five enjoying our meal, soaking in the atmosphere and having lots of laughs . This was a reunion of four siblings ( and my spouse) who live in four different cities, two different countries. It is not often that we have the time and opportunity to be together and I chose Le Cafe in the hopes the food and weather would prove to be memorable. Neither was disappointing.
Thank you for a wonderful meal, great service and contributing to our super time.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA friend and I had ticketsA friend and I had tickets to the NAC theatre that evening and we decided to have an early dinner at le Cafe . The setting was lovely, the service very good and the meal delicious. I will definitley return there.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSummer luncheonWith the nice weather back, it was a beautiful sunny day to have a special retirement luncheon for my executive assistant. Sitting outdoors along the canal was an additional plus. Although an expensive restaurant, the service, food and ambience is worth the price. A nice place to go if you are not in a rush and you want a quiet place to eat.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Relaxed Dining ExperienceI love the relaxed patio dining experience as did my companions. I have been at Le Cafe on busier nights and always appreciate the fact that the staff at Le Café check to confirm if diners are attending a NAC event. My venison was perfect - tender and served on the rare side of medium just as requested. I was impressed that the wait person advised me on ordering that the venison is served medium rare. My one dining companion thoroughly enjoyed her flavour-loaded chowder and after having a taste at her insistence, I thought it might have been a better choice than my smoked duck appetizer, which was somewhat bland. Both companions were very pleased with their Arctic char, a fish new to them.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe table was prepared theThe table was prepared the way I asked for. The staff were very kind. The food was great.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNew menu is varied and moreNew menu is varied and more understandable than the last version during 2012. The service was great - waiters very friendly with sense of humour - the two of us dining are gluten-free - and it was no provblem. The food was really delicious and very generous portions. They also know how to ensure you get to your theatre performance on time.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great as always.The food was great as always. The service was attentive and I appreciated that extra bread was provided. The view overlooking the canal and the congress centre cannot be beat. Thanks for a great experience.
