The food was quite good as usual but we both felt that there is an attempt to get a bit "cute". For example, the pan seared fois gras was served on asparagus whereas in the past there is some small bread or similar food on the plate. We were not disappointed but a bit of a feeling of not getting the value that we have gotten used to in the past.

Absolutely the best when it comes to fine dining in the Ottawa / Gatineau region. Nothing compares. The continually evolving menu draws you back year after year. Where else can you end the night with a taste of Louis XIII!

We were served by many different staff members, however, our young main server who took our order and removed our plates as well as the water server were outstanding - very polite, knowledgeable, and quick to serve. They both had a fun yet professional energy that added to the overall experience. We had the 7 course tasting menu which was outstanding quality, presentation, and flavour.

Great renovations; beautiful decor, tables amply set apart allowing for quiet dinner conversation. Servers were great.

Only complaint was that my steak ordered medium rare was true medium. My wife's hot lobster appetizer was excellent but her Halibut entree was a little dry.

This dining experience, particularly in Ottawa area, [the culinary hell-hole of Canada] is always enjoyable regardless of the occasional kitchen slipup.

Great table with a spectacular view. Every staff member was welcoming, friendly and the pace of the meal service was very professional. Every course was beautifully presented and most important of all the chef is a four star. Magnificent meal. Words cannot describe our experience and as world travellers my wife and I rate Bacarra in the top five.

My husband and I went to this restaurant on our anniversary and the entire experience was outstanding. If you have been to a Michelin star restaurant the quality of food and of the service was certainly nearly to par of the best restaurants even in New York City. We live in the states but if we lived in Canada this would be one of our favorite places to go for sure. For true foodies you will appreciate the dishes here.

Le Baccara is a perennial favourite with an ideal setting and views looking out towards the city.
Crisp white tablecloths and classical service make up the perfect canvas for the best food in the city. We always choose one of the tasting menus and are never disappointed. The dishes are imaginative and presented as edible works of art. Wine selection is vast and the sommelière will guide you to interesting and unusual selections to match the food.
The only drawback is that you have to walk through the clanging betting machines of the casino before you reach the peaceful haven of the restaurant. Still.. It is well worth the effort.

On a bien aimé le menu dégustation 5 services et agencement vins. A 500 dollars pour 2 ...pour un 30ieme anniversaire de mariage ok mais pas à tout les ans ça fait chère! On irait plus souvent si un peu moins dispendieux. Par chance que j’ai gagné un 200$ au casino,ça compensé.

We loved dining at Baccara on two previous occasions for our wedding anniversary. We celebrated our anniversary there in February 2018, enjoying the amazing table d'hote for a reasonable price ($65/person), and leaving feeling full and satisfied. However, we were very disappointed to find that the 5-course meal (equivalent to the former table d'hote) had gone up in price by $40! We were celebrating our parents'anniversary and were shocked by the steep price increase. Food and service we're good, but upset about unexpected price hike. Won't be returning anytime soon.

My family and I were celebrated the graduation of both our daughters as well as an early Father's Day. The food was absolutely delicious and the creative artistry of the presentation of the food was incredible. We had an incredible view of the river on a sunny day. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate such special occasions. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the culinary experience!

1. La salade était magnifiquement présentée; un délice pour les yeux et pour les papilles.
2. Mon invitée a dû retourner son plat principal : agneau trop cuit car elle l'avait demandé saignant.
3. Mon plat principal (menu 3 services), porcelet, était fade et tiède.
4. Le dessert (menu 3 services) était décevant.
5. Le café était excellent.
6. Le service était compétent et attentionné, tel qu'attendu dans ce type de restaurant.

Somme toute, le repas ne valait sûrement pas les 200$ + dépensés, incluant un verre de vin et une bière sans alcool.
