The food and service were incredible. It was an amazing experience and we will definitely be back again.
Really cool experience with some very tasty dishes. In my opinion, the food didn't quite match up with the price and what that money can get you at some other high-end restaurants. The service and attention to detail was exceptional.
Very good and innovative experience. Will recommend 100%
An excellent experience! The 44-course meal was truly worth it. I enjoyed my self so much !
Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Menu was unique and most of the dishes were really delicious. A few too many desserts, there should have been 1 more round of mains. Overall excellent!
Laura was amazing!! food was wonderful. loved that it did not feel crowded.
Was overall a wonderful experience and we are looking forward to the new menu in January 2022!!!
Atelier was amazing, the food was impeccable and the service was top notch. Really excellent experience and I would highly recommend it.
My fiancé and I went to Atelier and we love to experience adventurous but delicious food and Atelier was just the perfect choice to celebrate our engagement, it was one of the kind experience. Everyone was so professional and the right amount of friendly and fun. Dishes were all exquisite! They were kind enough to sign our list of dishes & wines that we tasted. Atelier was heart warming and elegant. Excellent choice of wines, food Art and marvelous taste! Their interactive menu it's so unique! Thank you so much Atelier staff! See you next time :)
yes it is expensive but it’s worth the experience
A once une a lifetime, put of this world expérience !
What an experience ! Something unique and that you will remember forever ! The quality of the food and the service are perfect, those two combined are building an unforgettable experience.
If you are a foodie or just looking for anything fun to do in Ottawa this is the place right now.
The Wine pairings with the sommelier explanations are needed in my opinion to fully enjoy the experience.
Special thanks to Nour, Devin and Bernard for the outstanding night.
As a restaurant manager I strongly recommend Atelier :)
Une expérience de vie autant qu'une expérience culinaire, et une belle. Le souci du détail était évident. Finalement, nous avons été servis dans notre langue, en français, par un serveur franco-manitobain qui connaissait fort bien les plats.
It's expensive but totally worth the price. The creative process is outstanding.
We’ve been to and loved so many expensive 5 star restaurants and this is by far the worst in terms of value, taste and ambiance. Service was good but the value for the 44 course is not worth the money. There were probably 2 good tasting treats. The rest was questionable. They could do so much better with the cheap / cold ambiance. The experience is all it is and it ain’t worth more than 40$ at best. Lighting way too bright at some tables. Had a couple of wines but overall I’ve never felt so robbed. 500$+ bill for 2 lol. Dessert was good though, definitely the best part. Never going back there again. If that’s what you call rich people food, then I’d rather be broke because we ate way better for less. This is a 2 star, at best Resto.
Hello Edouard, your behaviour was very performative & garrulous. I'm questioning why I allowed my staff to endure the readily displayed rudeness, entitlement & abuse. As I'm sure you've experienced in your acting career, not all productions are palatable. This one certainly was not. While you will not be returning, rest assured we would not have allowed it anyway. Furthermore, we will not reimburse per your request as buyer's remorse & arrogance are non-refundable. Regards, Bernard Joseph - GM
Spectacular as always. We loved the 44 courses! We can’t wait to be back!!
Great Service - Great Food - Great drinks - Great Experience
Nous sommes des habitués de longue date mais première expérience avec le 44 services. C'est toujours un repas spectacle , une expérience et c'est ce qu'on recherche !
This would have been a 5 star review were it not for the fact that one course required people to watch a video on how to put it together so at random times throughout the meal we were trying to enjoy there were screeching cell phones going off constantly as people turned the volume way up to watch the minute long (or longer?) video. We just turned the volume off and read the subtitles but most people didn't. The video should have the audio stripped from it and just rely on the subtitles. We paid $500 for the meal (2 people, 2 drinks each + tip) and really would have enjoyed it a lot more if we could have just been listening to the awesome music selection the restaurant used and our conversation. It actually ruined the experience for us and we rushed out of there as soon as we paid our bill. If I'm paying that much money for an amazing meal the last thing I want is to hear videos playing on people's phones.
Cameron, our server was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. He added significantly to our overall dining experience. At the conclusion of our Anniversary evening, I requested, if possible, a tour of the kitchen. Not only did we get a tour, but also were fortunate to have a few precious minutes with the head chef. Wow, huge bonus. Fabulous memory for my wife and I on our 30th Anniversary.
Nice fancy tasting. Great service. Maybe a little too many dishes : it is hard to stay alert for all the different flavours after a while. We were near the entrance door, so had a gust of freezing air coming in every now and then. Overall good experience.
It was definitely worth every penny. The service was fantastic and the food was super creative and delicious. There more misses that hits for the dessert round (hence the 4 stars) but my hats off to the chef!
It's a restaurant that I look forward to coming back to.
Awesome experience. The only one thing I noticed was the food was Luke warm as well as the water.
Unique experience in Ottawa! Dined for a special occasion and we felt ‘special’ throughout the entire evening. Thank you!
What an amazing experience and so incredibly unique!
latelier is an excellent restuarant with top notch service and an amazing 44 course tasting menu.
Wonderful experience and great way to spend an evening with loved ones or friends. The food is exciting and the wine pairing is great as well.
C'est une belle expérience de service avec la cuisine fusion, moléculaire, mais je m'attendais à beaucoup plus au niveau du goût.
Visited this amazing, high-end place for our anniversary. Our server explained everything for the dishes, desserts and ingredients. and the little fun guessing game. Wonderful experience!
Interesting concepts for making +presenting the "gourmet food labels" to production of dishes such as "Lobster" dish and receiving as a "Lobster cracker", Mac+ Cheese dehydrated powder as a dish. I felt ripped off. After 44 courses, I had to cook when I got home.
amazing experience! Incredible service and great food and drink
Unbelievable experience. Like nothing else we’ve ever done. Worth every penny.
Invigorating, interactive evening that exceeded expectations.
Came here on our anniversary, and we were absolutely blown away by the experience. The craftsmanship, creativity, and taste of every single meal was unmatched. Amazing value for the money.
A great way to spend a night. Service was extremely attentive with great attention to detail.
The food and service was excellent, but it would be nice if the wine list was more expansive for purchasing by the glass or half litre.
Amazing culinary experience. Would have liked an equally exciting cocktail menu at the beginning.
Definitely an experience! The food was all spectacular - not a single item was disliked by any of our 4 diners. The pace was perfect, our waiter and sommelier were both great as well. I can’t believe I ate 44 courses!
Food was amazing!! Service was great, staff is passionate, nice, and very enthusiastic about the entire experience. 10/10 would recommend!
We ate at Atelier to celebrate our anniversary. Excellent food and service. We got the full wine pairing which was my favourite part. The sommelier was knowledgeable giving us some interesting facts about each wine. Would highly recommend!
If you can afford to go - GO! An experience you won't forget. Do the wine pairing, it is as good as the meal. 45 courses wow, loved it!
An exceptional food and wine tasting adventure. Will remember this for a long time.
