It was positively lovely. We sat in comfy club chairs on the bar side so it was a bit quieter.
Understaffed but kind of to be expected in this climate. Having said that, our server was delightful.
I would return.
We loved everything. We just didn’t like being that table next to the washroom area. It was a good table but I was acutely aware that it was in front of the washroom access.
But otherwise. It was a great experience.
Fantastic food and service. Quiet on a Sunday night. Cozy by the fire with comfy chairs.
Nice ambience. Good service - she was very nice/friendly.
Food was great - would order the Fish and Chips again. My friend ordered the Beef Tartare which was also good just a bit brown looking and overpowered by the jalapeno.
We love this place, best charcuterie in town! Also, the brutus Ceasar is insane and tasty!
Jordan, the “mixologist”, is fantastic! I feel that calling him a bartender would be an insult. I’ve been numerous times and he just creates cocktails based on my tastes. The food was fantastic and didn’t last 5 minutes on my plate. Always love going back there.
The Albion Rooms has become one of my favorite restaurants in Ottawa. Upon entrance to the restaurant we we immediately greeted. The staff are always very welcoming and professional. The charcuterie board is phenomenal! The Autumn Menu has been perfectly set out and love all the options listed. I rarely take the time to write a recommendation and felt that The Albion Rooms deserved it.
Always great food and cocktails!
Amazing service and awesome drinks, staff was super helpful
Everything was lovely,
Buy my linguine was just a tad overcooked. I love my pasta al denté and it was probably my fault, I should’ve mentioned it to the waiter. Apart from that it was a lovely evening and the food was great! I still ate my pasta it was tasty nonetheless. Fantastic scotch egg.
Ambiance was nice, drinks were great and food was just average.
Great gem off Byward Market!
First time to The Albion Rooms - we really enjoyed to experience and service along with our entree's.
Ordered the charcuterie platter, and had to ask for softer bread. I just got braces a few days earlier and couldn't handle the crustini that is normally served with the platter. Overall it was a delicious platter and the waiter promptly helped with softer breads.
Sarah was awesome-- didn't hesitate on a quality check to remove an item, really nice and very informative. Tasty food that's a lil over priced (fault of location, I think). 100% would go back for date night or another night with the girls. Loved the ambience.
Overall 4/5 stars.
We came back to the Albion Rooms after a long time and were very impressed with the server - friendly and efficient. However we were very disappointed with the fish and chips - they had replaced the thick cut fries with thinner limp ones and the fish also was not crispy or tasty. We will give them another try as we like the service and ambience.
Good food great value! Ambiance we very nice considering it’s a hotel restaurant. Fries were a little to salty and greasy, charcuterie board and tartare was excellent.
Fantastic venue for drinks or dinner. Highly recommend!
Lovely space, server was lovely, food was tasty, and pretty good value for the amount of food overall! Thanks!
Sarah and team were amazing. Great place with ambiance and good food.
The Albion Rooms is always good. Food, wine, service, etc.
The med rare steak was well done. The elk burger overcooked and dry. Fries were great. No bread served on arrival. Menu selection was skimpy
Another wonderful experience at the Albion Rooms! Love the atmosphere, the friendly staff and the food. One of our favorite places to go.
The ambiance was good, just not the food. Ordered the charcuterie and fish & chips. The fries were soggy and the fish, hmm... Had better
Good quality food and drinks. Really like the patio. We will be back.
Carte modeste mais très bon ! On y revient.
Excellent service and delicious food. One of the best Manhattans I have had in ages. Can’t wait to return.
I am a big fan of Albion Rooms taking many guests there over the years. However, I was very disappointed with the summer menu selection. More like pub food than the fine dining I have expected. The website did not give any indication that the menu would be so restricted. We most likely would not have gone if we had seen the limited selection. A suggestion is that you indicate on the website what the menu looks like going forward.
Hello Patricia, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Our current/reduced menu has been displayed on our official website since we re-opened in Mid-June. Unfortunately the older menu is still displayed on our opentable page. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I'm sure you can understand the need to offer limited menu options in the current global pandemic. We strive to offer a fresh and exciting dining experience in a safe and COVID responsible space.
Great hide away in the downtown sector. Great vibe and drinks/food. Exceptional staff/service.
The wait staff was so nice, the patio is gorgeous, and they took all the necessary precautions for COVID
Greeted right as we got in, ans very friendly. They had masks and we were seated inside right away (was raining and made a reservation). Ordered 2 glasses of wine which came on time and 2 x elk burgers with fries. The fries were so good, and the burgers had great flavour. My partner stated his patty was a bit dry, but mine was good. We agreed we would come back again for drinks with friends (within reason).
Excellent service, handling things efficiently with theor pandemic set up. Patio is lovely.
We had a wonderful meal and was particularly fond of their charcuterie board. The host took the time to go through each of the portions of the board for us and was extremely nice to talk to.
There was a nice ambiance seated outside on the patio.
Service was a bit slow and after the initial check to make sure everything's okay after our main plates were served to us, the staff seemed to disappear for the majority of the night making it difficult to get refills and order or inquire anything else.
Fantastic food, service and ambiance as usual, even during COVID. My only minor complaint is that the seats were not very comfortable though we ended up sitting longer than anticipated. Otherwise, great all around!
We have always enjoyed coming to the Albion Rooms , whether for brunch, drinks or a meal. This last time did not disappoint either. We were warmly greeted on the patio and seated in a wonderful area just for 2. We tried some new dishes, the grilled asparagus was outstanding as was the grilled bitter greens ... all great accompaniments for our steak. Our drinks (Manhattan and Cabernet Sauvignon) hit the spot. We will be back.
The Albion Rooms did not disappoint! Their cocktails are as amazing as ever and their patio menu was perfect to satisfy our cravings. The service is what stands out. We felt safe and comfortable being away from the busy Byward Market and well distanced from the next tables.
Absolutely wonderful dinner! Our server brought a special surprise dessert to the table for my partner’s birthday which was absolutely lovely. Great experience all around.
Very unique menu. Great service, calm atmosphere.
This was a great find. We loved the sheltered (shaded) patio with well-distanced tables. The abbreviated menu had a number of great choices. Staff were carefully sanitizing everything between seatings. Thanks to server Sara (Sarah?), hiding behind her mask, for taking such good care of us. This might be our new favourite spot in Ottawa.
My friend and I are both vegetarian. We thought the eggplant dish was delicious ! We would happily return if there were more vegetarian options on the menu. There is only one small plate which is vegetarian. It would be great if there were more options for us. You would see us more often. (I know other vegetarians would love the restaurant if there were more options.)
The wine selection is good but very pricey! A smalll glass of wine costs at least $13. I would like there to be a choice of 5 or 8 oz. glasses of wine and a respectable house wine at a more affordable price.
