To whom it may concern
I have been to the Banco Bistro many many times. It is a relaxing atmosphere to have dinner. I had reservations and I was seated almost immediatley. Our server was excellent and was courteous and polite. I speak english and this has never been a problem with any of your servers. The buffet food was good and hot and was full at all times. Your desert selection is good but it would be nice if you could
add cheesecake to your menu. Your establishment is very clean and inviting.
Thank you and keep up the good work.

Usually a good experience, albeit a little expensive. Unfortunately the restaurant was overwhelmed, so the service was pleasant but extremely slow. We had to ask several times for basic things (coffee, drinks, menus to order eggs Benedict).

Notre réservation était pour 13h00 nous avons attendu en ligne jusqu'à 13h30 avant qu'on nous amène à notre table, alors que la salle à diner était presque vide.
Pour la nourriture, la qualité est de moins en moins là et les prix sont de plus en plus élevés. Manque de raffinement, aucune sauce pour l'agneau, œuf Bénédict froid, pas de càpre pour le saumon. Tout le monde a été assis en même temps donc longue file d'attente pour le buffet. Nous avons attendu que la file diminue avant d'aller au buffet avec nos mères de 92 et 96 , ans, mais rendu là plusieurs assiettes du buffet était vide, miette de saumon fumé, pas de citron, pas d'huile et vinaigre pour la salade que des sauces épaisses pas très appétissante. Ce qui distinguait les restos du Casino Lac Lemay était la qualité de la nourriture. Mais maintenant c'est comme partout et c'est très décevant. Si vous ne voulez pas perdre la clientèle pour le Casino d'Ottawa, SVP continuer à vous distinguer avec la qualité.

Je le recommande durant l’année car le prix est bon, mais pas pour la fête des mères car le prix est trop élevé pour le mème buffet à peu de chose prêt. Je m’attendais à un WoW vu le prix plus élevé mais j’étais devant presque le même buffet lorsque j’y suis aller 3 semaines avant.

Food was bland and cold. Choice was limited. Roast beef was very tough and fatty. Hubby was not impressed with sea food choices. Nothing exciting to make me recommend to friends. I wasted so much money on what was supposed to be an amazing date night.

Les serveuses et serveurs se parlaient super fort que c'était dérangeant. On avait l'impression d'être chez eux et que l'on dérangeait. Le steak cher et vraiment tendre. Les légumes trop cuits. La patate au four bien trop petite. Très déçue.

Dans l ensemble, la soirée était très agréable. La nourriture bonne , chaude , variées et bien présentée .
La famille s est bien amusée. Nous étions plutôt bruyants et enjoués suite a l anniversaire de la grand-mère était heureuse de voir toute la famille réunie autour de la table. Nous apprécions les efforts que vous avez fournis auprès de nous afin de faire de cette soirée un moment mémorable.

Since our last visit though the choice of different foods items has decreased.
A suggestion would be to have an omelet making stand...

I was pleased with the excellent service, but not so pleased with what I felt was a reduced buffet selection from the last time that I came. At a time when they must be feeling pressure from the Ottawa Casino, I was surprised to see some changes that devalued their offering from the past.

That said, food quality was excellent overall.

It boasted of a fantastic buffet however, this was not the case. They had 3 meat options, rice, mashed potatoes and fries and vegetarian pizza. There was no real variety. Their desert bar however was immense. I would recommend to stick with the menu option, skip the buffet.

My step-father and I went to the Banco Restaurant for brunch to celebrate his upcoming birthday. Our server, Eric, was very pleasant and made our visit extra special when he informed us that he was also celebrating his birthday on the same day as my step-father. Eric sang happy birthday to him, made sure we had everything we needed and was very thoughtful overall. The food was served very fast, very hot and a great amount (we were full for the rest of the day). Dessert was very well presented and delicious. My step-father felt like a King and I truly felt like a Princess. I would definitely recommend this location for brunch. Thank you very much Eric for going the extra mile. It was greatly appreciated.

It was surprisingly a VERY small buffet. If I am going to spend a decent amount of money I would like not to have so many items that were very cheap to supply (potatoes, root vegetables i.e. carrots, dumplings and pasta). Sorry to say but the desserts were terrible. I have been told that it used to be amazing but that things had changed. Wish I had heard that before going for a very special occasion. :(
