The appetizer was over-microwaved, the two steaks arrived equally cooked even though the request was for one to be well done and the other medium rare, the wine for a half litre of Rioja was too high, and overall the price was too high for the quantities delivered (2 beans for example). The hostess was in flip flops and dressed like she belonged in the back yard of a laid-back cottage. The server forgot the request for horseradish, had to be reminded, and then showed up when the last bite of steak was being consumed. Overall, we were reminded of why 5 years ago we stopped coming to Brigadoon. Now we will never return - they have not redeemed themselves.

The atmosphere and the service was excellent. This place is off the main roads for the greater Ottawa region, but definitely worth the scenic drive. Charming location in a small and beautiful town

The food was DELIOUS! and was only surpassed by the owner/server. They were extremely knowledgeable about how the food was prepared (which is on site), wines to accompany and all served up with grace and humour. MY SUGGESTION - MAKE YOUR RESERVATION AND ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY ! That way you can examine all of the artifacts that they have on display or review all three floors without bothering their other patrons.

Few places offer Afternoon Tea any more and they do it with traditional style. Every morsel on their three tier plate was delicious.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. Someone in our group has dietary restrictions because of health reasons. The waitress was very understanding and helpful. The chef went above and beyond what we asked for...thank you so very much. It was really our first time out since she was hospitalized and you helped more then you'll ever know. By the way, the chicken crepes are absolutely delicious!

It was our first time there and it was fun - our Server was great. The only complaint that I had was that I was told that if we made reservations for 7 and only 6 showed up that somebody would have to pay for the 7th person. That had me worried. My 7th person came down with the influenza and I didn't want her to come and spend the whole time in the bathroom.

The service was very slow. There only appeared to be 1 waitress to serve the whole room. She was very nice and efficient but was overworked. The food wasn't bad but mine was served warm rather than hot. I ordered a bottle of french wine for the other 3 at the table. I found out after it was consumed that the wine served had been a less expensive canadian wine. When reviewing the bill after I got home, I noticed that I had been charged for the more expensive french wine. I have had meals, just as enjoyable (or more so) at other restaurants for 1/2 the price. I will not return.

Service was exceptional as was the food. They let us chat till the lights went out, never asking us to leave, letting us have as much time as we wanted even after paying the bill. Highly recommend!!!

A must fine dining experience! Living in upstate NY, we don't have too many up-scale restaurants to choose from, and Brigadoon is a close, over-the-border drive for that date night or special occasion you're looking to give a unique flare of quality and atmosphere.

The food was excellent as usual. I did make the mistake of getting the Halibut of the day and not asking the price. It turned out to be much more than I would have paid if I'd known. It would have been nice to be told the price without having to ask.

We made this reservation as our Valentine's Day evening out. The food was well prepared and very tasty and the server was attentive. It's been 10 years since last we were at Brigadoon. I think it will be less than that before we return! The décor is very different and we enjoyed playing trivia games through the evening from the supply that the restaurant keeps on the knick knack shelves.

No fault of the restaurant, of course, but a large group of noisy patrons showed up halfway through our meal. I wish people would modify their behaviour when not dining by themselves and understand that they are not the only people in the restaurant. This is an expensive night out and, while it didn't ruin it for us, I wonder sometimes what happens in people's heads when they need to be the centre of attention like that.

I really like the Brigadoon when it is less busy. It was very noisy and too many people were packed into the restaurant on Valentine’s day. It made it unpleasant. Service was good considering the conditions. We had a nice server. The food was good, but portions were small and the food was overpriced. Even the wine pairings we had were overpriced for the small amount of wine we had in the glass.

It’s beautiful at this restaurant. The Atmosphere is breathtaking and from the minute you walk into the minute you walk out your treated with such respect and kindness. The food is outstanding… Very good quality and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anybody. If you’re looking for that special place to take that special person this is definitely the place to go

Lovely old mansion, with an entrance that allows you to get inside and hang your jacket before going into the dining area. The dining area was lovley and warm without being to hot. Perfect temp for both myself and my wife. Staff were polite, helpful and attentive. We had a lovley dinner and were not rushed. So many interesting nick backs on the walls and shelves to look at. Scottish entertainment was a wonderful add on to our Bobby Burns dinner. We had a fantastic evening out.

We chose this restaurant in particular to celebrate my 60th birthday and my retirement day. I can't decide whether it was the food or the service I liked better. Either way, the Brigadoon made celebrating these milestones very special. Thanks Larissa. You are outstanding.

I had heard of The Brigadoon for years, and finally had the chance to try it out. Every year, I try to pick a special place to celebrate my husband’s sober anniversary so I decided on this place. It exceeded our expectations. The food and ambiance was amazing. We will definitely return and not wait for another special occasion.
