This is a great and unique dining experience. Our food was just as delicious as it was pleasing to the eye. Our waiter was AMAZING! He was knowledgeable on the food and was great to chat with. He truly made our dining experience that much more elevated. The sommelier was also very knowledgeable and a pleasure to talk to. If you’re in the Ottawa area it is definitely a great restaurant to check out.

The experience was absolutely mind blowing. The level of creativity and quality in both the food and wine pairings but also in the presentation was extraordinary. You are being invited to ‘play’ and ‘explore’ the food and wines in a way that we have never experienced.

An Atelier dinner is a large (44 items) tasting menu of very small bites (lots of molecular gastronomy). The meal lasts about 3 hours, but the chairs are very comfortable. The presentation is excellent, many of the tastes are sublime, and the restaurant has added some charming and silly (not a bad thing) interactive elements, such as an edible helium balloon. Well worth the high price.

OMG, this 44 mini sampling course dinner (for each of us) was mind boggling. I love Atelier and have been going every 5 years for many many years now and honestly have to say this new 44 sampling menu per person with wine pairing is the most amazing dining experience I have ever had anywhere. All the samplings made by Marc Lepine and his staff is so creative and tasteful. Each plate truly indulge our palates. The creation of using the QR codes on the table using communication devices to get more information on each serving was genius. Servers also took the time to describe each plate if you didn't use the QR codes or just wanted more details. This whole new dining experience incorporating technology in the mix is wonderful and really fun. It took us 5 hours to get through the entire dining experience and the entire 5 hours was a blast. Was totally worth the total cost paid out. I tip my hat to all the staff at Atelier.

Atelier was above and beyond what I expected. Each dish I had absolutely no idea what flavours to expect and each dish was better than the last. The staff were kind and very knowledgeable about the food and accompanying wines. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience if you have the chance to go!

We had a lovely time at atelier for their 44 course experience. It took us 5 hrs but we did take our time, others around us were there for less time. The food is elaborate and you get to taste a bit of every kind of food. Would highly recommend for celebrations, as it is quite an experience. We did the full wine pairing and it is about 10-1 ounce glasses.

Just amazing. We had been for the 12 courses previously and had high expectations for the new 44 course meal. The whole thing was amazing. How Marc Lepine can so perfectly make so many different styles of dishes is mind boggling. Our waiter, Cameron, added a lot to the experience as well, clearly taking pleasure in the enjoyment the diners experienced.

WOW! What an amazing dining experience! Food was phenomenal, wine pairing expertly put together and the service was attentive, friendly and professional. Dining at the Atelier is expensive, but worth every cent and every dollar. The dishes are unique and the overall experience was worth the 4 hours that took us to go through the 44 courses.
