When ready to order, they decided to tell us the kitchen was closed. Food was coming out the the kitchen all around us.
Drinks were just ok
Got free popcorn
Great food. Great service. Just wish the portion size was a bit more based on what it costs.
Well, here it was Christmas Eve in Ottawa. My sweetie and I were looking for a nice place to have a romantic holiday dinner. We book this restaurant because it was in walking distance and looked like a nice place. Sadly, although we booked our reservation through open table, the restaurant was closed! I might not be exaggerating if I said that it ruined our entire holiday. OK, I am exaggerating. But what a bummer, Right?
Server was friendly. Fettuccine Alfredo was excellent. Chicken Fajitas sadly were dry. Paella only adequate. PB&Chocolate dessert was rich and decadent - 3 of us ate it - could have shared with more. Yummy.
Table non nettoyé à notre arrivé à celle-ci.
Musique très forte pour heure de repas.
Menu cocktail WOW ! But for food.... ;-(
Super serveuse !!
Vos employés ne semblent pas heureux ! Nous pouvons le ressentir en tant que client !
Bref je retournerai pour cocktail mais pas pour manger !!
HA oui !!! Les toilettes étaient infectent !!!! Vous savez que nous pouvons présumer que si les toilettes sont ainsi les cuisines ne sont pas mieux !!!
I was really disappointed in my dinner at Blue Cactus. We met out of town friends for a Sunday dinner, but the music was so loud that we couldn't really visit. The server agreed to turn the volume down a notch, but either he forgot or one notch was not enough. In any event, we still couldn't hear each other or the server. Why do restaurants think ultra loud music qualifies as "buzz" ? Given the noise and the indifferent food, I would never go again.
I reserved using open table 3 hours in advance and when I arrived they had no reservations for me. Guess they don't keep updated lists. Was not impressed. They should not be using open table if not live.
Very accomodating -excellent waiter (Mike) and efficient service on a busy evening. Loved the tuna salad!
Crazy busy weekend in Ottawa where other restaurants lacked blue cactus picked up in service quality and price!
Used to love this place years back when I went to school in Ottawa. But seems to have changed over the years. Felt like we were at chain restaurant like Kelseys. Service was lacking and food was just fine. Probably chose somewhere else before returning.
