An Ottawa Favourite! Excellent food, service and sty.
The only complaint was the food took long to come out. Good food, good ambiance our server was excellent.
Phenomenal food & service! Everyone needs to try the new cocktails!!
This place transformed from an unique middle Eastern restaurant with amazing offerings to basically a restaurant like any other in the city with limited menu items and food that lacks flavor! I was very disappointed. The meat was cold, their "covid-19 menu" is very limited.
The vegeterian food was a little blang (artichocke app and the cauliflower)
Always dependable and delicious food with unique cocktails.
Food was tasty but small portions, service was outstanding with Alexander. We was so considerate and fun. We were four girls enjoying a special birthday and he made us feel so welcome even though we were being loud and enjoying ourselves so much, maybe too much! We had a blast with the service of the whole restaurant. Everyone was so sweet and they made the birthday girl feel special, with a card and a special cake! Thank you Fairouz!
Delicious food good service and large variety of wine.
Loved it. The food was excellent and the service was amazing and imaginative. We shared the 4 person sharing plate and loved it - lots of food for a very reasonable price. And the bartender made up a cold night tea cocktail for us that was perfect.
Felt very safe. Good distancing between tables. Staff are excellent. Food was plentiful and delicious.
Canadian cities are full of restaurants offering some generic menu of supposedly 'Arab' dishes that everyone seems to stick to - the same mezze items, a mandatory shish tawouk, lamb and beef dish. I was expecting Fairouz to be different from all the reviews I read. I was underwhelmed by the menu and its execution. The spin on muhammara was alright maintaining the flavors while colonizing it with cashews. It was more like eating chopped cashews dressed with some dibs-rumman (pomegranate molasses). I was excited about eating the classic fried cauliflower as I was super homesick but this turned out to bland. The cauliflower was not browned enough and the tarator (tahini sauce) was missing desired tanginess. My beef was chewy and near cold, sitting on a bed of cold ezme. It came with saj that was dry and cold. Saj should be warm and soft. I couldn't eat it. The lamb sandwich was the only dish that was satisfying but again it came with kale tabouleh that was orphaned in terms of flavor.
Service was painfully slow from the time it took to be seated and to order.
Maybe this food works for people unfamiliar with the cuisine but as someone from the Arab world where restaurants display tremendous sophistication in revisiting traditional dishes, this restaurant completely missed the mark.
This meal was fabulous. Every dish we ordered was delicious. Really nice melding of flavours. Great service.
They removed several tables to allow for social distancing. Upside - we felt comfortable/safe. Downside - you lose some ambiance/vibe, but que sera sera. It’s the time we are in.
Great outdoor space. Delish food. Awesome wine selection. Friendly and knowledgeable staff provide laid back place to enjoy a meal with friends.
The kale taboulé was too acidic for my liking, and the pulled lamb sandwich had a spicy sauce on the bread that I didn’t care for. I did not think it went well with the lamb.
For the fried cauliflower I’ve had better.
Expérience culinaire très intéressante, les parfums de cette cuisine! Un délice! À un prix très raisonnable, dans une magnifique maison. Service attentif, impeccable tout en étant tout à fait convivial ! Bref a recommander ++++
Truly a jewel in Ottawa. No other place can compete with the flavors you'll experience here. Its a homerun every time and the service is awesome. Do yourself a favor and overindulge, experience as much as you can, its worth it!
Excellent service and tasty food. We went to celebrate our anniversary, and were pleased with the service, the hand written note, and the treat at the end.
Extremely great service. Felt so comfortable. Great Ambiance.
Falafel fries and chicken main were delicious. Hubby found his pulled lamb sandwich a bit sweet. Service was good, not as jovial as you would expect pre-pandemic, but this is our new normal! Tables were appropriately spaced, we were never near other diners. Everyone wore masks coming in and out. Bathroom was clean. Fouf cake was amazing. It's a must try!
Une très belle soirée en amoureux sur la terrasse du restaurent. La viande est savoureuse!!! Un très bon repas.
Great place, good food, excellent service.
Our only disappointment was that our bill came to $250, and were charged $1.50 for each of the 3 additional pieces of pita we ordered for our dips. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a restaurant before that charged for bread when you spend $30 on dips.
Delicious food, generous portions, and a wonderful patio! We will definitely be recommending Fairouz to our friends and family!
Excellent food, warm and helpful staff, and a lovely setting on the front porch. Can’t wait to return, very soon!
Food was delicious and the service at this restaurant was great. Portions are moderate size and you leave feeling satisfied after having a quality meal. Definitely recommend!
We had an incredible birthday celebration at Fairouz! Outstanding service from our server and absolutely delicious food! We had an issue with our family coming from out of town who were going to be late, while the head hostess did sound a bit stressed on the phone she was able to make it work and we are very grateful for that! Very impressive menu especially in light of Covid-19 restrictions. I would say it was fairly expensive but the level of service makes it worth while.
Very ordinary... over rated i think. Small menu and expensive for no reason.
Fantastic food. Great service. Very enjoyable experience. Definitely recommend!
Food and service are phenomenal at Fairouz...nice drink menu as well...every visit is enjoyable!
Depuis environ un an ce restaurant sert une nourriture passablement fade. Le poulet était ennuyeux de même que le pain qu'on m'a servi. La seule chose qui fut bonne fût le vin blanc. Ce resto n'a rien à voir avec ce qu'il fût il y a trois ou quatre années.
Exceptional service, cocktails and food, as always. Great options for vegetarians and meat eaters. Looking forward to visiting the patio again soon.
Very nice experience. The food was full of flavour and very interesting. The service was professional. For the quality of food and portion we found the pricing to be very reasonable.
Wonderful meal and service ! The lamb was so perfectly cooked. We enjoyed this meal!
Great variety of vegetarian dishes and great service.
It was our first time and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was excellent.
This was my wife’s birthday dinner with our sons and their girlfriends. Food was amazing. Our server was one of the worst I have experienced at a highly rated restaurant. She only seemed interested in explaining the menu and speaking to my eldest son and his girlfriend. We ordered both white and red wine. I wanted to taste test the white and after saying it was fine she took the bottle to younger end of the table to offer it to those who wanted white, she totally skipped asking my wife and only realized after putting the bottle back in the chilled holder. I asked for a clean glass to have the red wine she took my dirty white glass and didn’t bring a clean one back. After over 15 minutes I had flag down another server to bring me a glass and they brought it straight away. As the meal progressed she came to our table less and less. The other table staff were very good and brought anything we asked for right away. Even getting our bill was a chore as our server decided to spend almost 20 minutes chatting with another table who had already paid their bill. As a birthday celebration.it is a shame that such a poor server tainted such amazing food. We hope to return someday, but hope that the quality of service is addressed.
The food was very good but the level of service outstanding. I have IBS and had difficulty digesting some foods; the server was very concerned, even sent us a supervisor who communicated with the chef and bend over backwards to accommodate me out of her own volition.
Food was amazing. A bit pricey for the portion sizes.
Excellent service, and food! Staff remembered us from previous occasions which is very nice and shows that they really value their customers!
Very good food, nice ambiance
Delicious food. Excellent service in English and in French!!
