    Good food, nice atmosphere, attentive and friendly staff. Was there for lunch with a friend and it was a very enjoyable experience. Had the tuna tartar and the tuna salad.

    Ended up leaving after waiting for over 30-minutes and never being acknowledged at our table. When the server did eventually come over he was incredibly rude. We walked out.

    Good service on part of Justin D. Food wise owever, the rosemary & asagio fries came... without rosemary and asagio. Our waiter dealt with the problem. The duck wings, which were drumsticks... (not wings) were very dry and chewy. Otherwise the pizzas were fine as well as the tuna tartare.

    The food and waitron were very good, but the music level in the restaurant was awful, as well as the choice of music. There were 3 tabled occupied, and we had difficulty in hearing each other. We asked the waitron to lower the volume, which she did, but shortly afterwards someone put it up again. Even on the streets outside as we left the restaurant , the noise was very loud. Won’t be going back again

    No pizza which is half their menu. Server had to be asked for everything. Asked us to pay before we were done and didn't serve our last drink or bring a box for my leftovers...had fun in spite of the service and the duck wings were good or they would have gotten a lower star rating....

    Restaurant was great and staff was very knowledgable when inquiring about allergies. I wish the menu items were labelled with common allergens (gluten and dairy specifically). If common allergens were clearly stated on the menu I would be back for other meals

    my main was the braised beef and it was a huge portion of meat (way too much), it was tender but it had no flavour and neither did the mashed potatoes. disappointing since it was a whopping $38. we waited awhile for service when it wasn’t that busy but the server was nice. i liked the interior but the food was really expensive for what it was

    We thought the charcuterie board was pretty skimpy. The pizzas were excellent, and the service was great. We met friends from out of town for dinner, and it was so loud we couldn’t carry a decent conversation. We will likely not be going back. There are lots of great restaurants in Ottawa. For the price, we expected a better environment.

    Very nice evening at the Tavern. Service was slow, but staffing numbers were minimal. The service staff were very pleasant and good, they were working very hard so it’s not their fault at all. We weren’t in a rush, so it really didn’t affect our evening. Food was excellent as were the drinks.

    Disappointed in the quality ofvv be the food this time. Had the curry and it was mostly sauce and hardly any vegetables despite the description. Definitely overpriced for what it was. I don’t know that I will be returning to eat at the Clarendon again.
