Beautiful spot next to a window. Temperature was quite cool until they turned the heat on. There was a dinner table of 8-10 regulars who were there to party and drink, which ruined the romantic experience. We were disappointed that the restaurant placed us near them.

My wife lost her father to cancer this year. I really wanted to do something special for her. Our experience at your restaurant exceeding all expectations. The attention to every detail was truly outstanding and the food was without question one of the best meals we have ever had. I haven’t see her this happy in months. She actually said she felt like Queen for a night :) Thank you to the staff and chefs for such true passion for what you do. Glenn & Margot Menard

Nous étions 2 personnes avec des spécificités d'alimentation (allergie et diabète). Nous avions pleinement confiance puisque le serveur a tout de suite prise en note nous référant ainsi les meilleures alternatives dans notre menu. Chaque assiette était identifiée ppur nos besoins. De plus, le menu surprise rempli son mandat. Bravo!

Le Baccara never disappoints. We had the Menu Degustation (tasting menu) with the selection of premium wines. Both food and wine were beyond exceptional. It may be considered expensive, however for a special occasion it is well worth it.

Took a 5 course meal. Was asked what I don't like. Enumerated 3 things. 1 of those things was in 3 of the 5 meals. That situation left me disapointed considering the pricepoint and renoun of the place.

Despite that the food was good, would probably have been great if they had chose other meals on the menu to serve me (which there were). The desert was lacking (the donut was dry, had a sauce with 1 ingredient I asked not to have and the ice-cream was flavorless despite being tagged as maple).

Service was impeccable. Vincent, Jocelyn and Danielle were great. Reception was great overall.

As always, our experience at Le Bacara was exceptional in all respects. With the consummate assistance of Jocelyn, our server, we were guided through a wonderful tasting menu. The wine matching has always been inspiring on our visits but this night they were especially good. Not a single element to be faulted in any respect — how often can you say that? And, of course, congratulations on the beautiful new decor!

Le Bacara remains, in our view, the best restaurant in the region by a clear margin.

I reserved at the Baccara for my husband's birthday and we loved it. The overall experience was perfect. I really loved the fact that all the staff member were very sensitive to our needs. Everyone said Hi when we arrived and said bye when we left. they stop what they were doing and noticed us, I was very impress. It is sad that the price of meal is very costly because we would definitely go more often. Hopefully we will be able to go back for our 1 year wedding anniversary.
Thanks,

En plus des plaisirs gastronomiques le restaurant offre une vue magnifique sur Ottawa, le lac et le coucher du soleil. Il est de plus un prelude au spectacle au theatre du casino. A cette occasion le spectacle emballant de Gabrielle des Trois Maisons «  Blue suede show » etait a l affiche.

Magnifique soirée pour deux éternels amoureux. Ceci dit, pour le montant déboursé (plus de 500 $ pour deux) on se serait attendu d’un peu plus, du service et de la nourriture. De petits détails, mais combien importants. Surtout qu’ils sont de base. Ce sera donc une critique constructive.

1er: le service entre les plats (menu dégustation 5 services x 2) était beaucoup trop rapide. L’oeil du serveur devrait être assez exercé pour évaluer le rythme des convives, surtout si ceux-ci n’ont pas terminé leur apéro et le verre de vin qui accompagne chaque plat (accord vin option Prestige).

2ème: la sommelière d’expérience devrait réduire son débit d’explication lorsqu’elle interagit avec les convives, et surtout les regarder dans les yeux 😉

3ème: notes au Chef. Le foie gras poêlé ne devrait jamais être servi avec une veine récalcitrante. Malheureusement, cela est tombé sur moi 😔 Aussi, les bouts de filets de bison plus coriaces devraient être conservés pour les mijotés et non pas servis au menu dégustation, par contre mon premier morceau était parfait.

4ème: finalement, les convives devraient jouir de tranquillité lorsqu’ils terminent leur repas. Tout en débarrassant les tables voisines des couverts souillés, on pourrait toutefois attendre avant de les remonter ex: nappes, replacer les tables, les chaises, etc. Surtout si les convives sont à grande proximité et qu’on est un jeudi soir, lendemain de la St-Valentin. Ça peut attendre.

Ceci étant dit, oui nous y retournerons et oui nous recommandons, mais pas prochainement.

Merci

C'était notre 3ème visite au Baccara,d'habitude,le service est excellent,mais lors de notre visite, j'ai l'impression que nous avons été oubliés ma femme et moi.
Quatre heures pour le menu 8 services pour moi et le 5 services pour madame ,c'est très long et presque inacceptable.

Ce n,est probablement pas de la faute de notre serveur,qui lui ,a été très serviable et très occupé surtout.

Upon arriving, we were made to feel special and warmly welcomed.
Maître d, waiters were all very friendly, warm, well informed and accommodating.
Service was impeccable, attentive without being in your face, they were very subtle .
Food was delicious and any special request was encouraged without fuss.
Presentation was out of this world. Each plate was a piece of art in itself.
Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone anytime.
Yes it is pricey but not over priced. Well worth the value.
