We enjoyed Spin for another great holiday brunch. The atmosphere was a bit different this time due to a large number of hockey tournament visitors but it was another great brunch and we look forward to returning for Easter or Mother's Day!
Betty is the best server ever. She is amazingly professional and helpful.
Love coming here for lunch. Have been twice with my infant daughter and have always felt welcome. Manager went out of his way to ensure that our daughter was enjoying herself.
Love the quiche of the day! Always my favourite!
When given cash for payment, the lady server asked if we needed change. I find that practice insulting. Considering the amount of the bill and the amount of cash given as payment, no change would have meant a tip of over 20 %. Why ask, simply give the change and let the customers decide how much they want to leave for tip. It would also be nice if the server would ask if she should bring separate bills instead of assuming that one bill would be OK. I hope I get a different server next time I visit Spin Kitchen.
I was disappointed that Spins no longer offered their gourmet burger. However, the quiche and tomato/chickpea soup were both delicious, and service was prompt.
Thus place I though would good. Since it was in the heart of Ottawa. Only decent thing I ate on the menu was lobster roll. I gave the place a couple trys. It was not worth it...tasteless and not anything worth the price. It seemed like no love put in and from a bag or freezer.
One of the best happy hour deal in town. Convenient location. We had a good time and enjoyed the food/drinks from the happy hour and regular menus. Try the pork sliders if they are still on the menu! My friend's kid really enjoyed the kid's menu.
My boss, a coworker and I had a semi-celebratory lunch here - our first time at this restaurant even though we work in the tower next door. Everything about this place was wonderful - the wine, an Ontario Chardonnay was chilled perfectly and tasted divine. The tomato and chickpea bisque was fresh and delicious and the Maritime lobster roll was perfect. Prices were way more reasonable than I was expecting and the portions were plentiful. My boss and I split the bisque as our waitress said it was a big portion and I'm so glad we did as even the split bowls were huge. I would recommend this for all occasions, service is quick and very friendly. Will plan more office events here in the future.
Very nice place with great service and delicious food.
Thanks! We will come back for sure.
We had only 1 hour to order and eat lunch and they delivered! Our group of 14 was in and out in under an hour!
The Indian butter chicken was unbelievable - the best I ever had. So moist and creamy, and the naan was soft and crisp with just enough garlic. Drooling thinking about that meal! (I had the turkey club on cranberry raisin loaf the day before and it was good but nothing to write home about.)
Great friendly service to top it off! Will be back no doubt on next trip to Ottawa!
A business lunch with friends... What a great place to meet! Food and service were both excellent. I've been to Spin twice and both occasions were excellent! Thanks!
I love, love, love your Salad Nicoise. My friend was very happy to be able to choose her own salad ingredients and was very happy with the result. You are close by to my office and my first choice for lunch. Our server was amazing, so attentive but unobtrusive. We are both older women and very much appreciated not being called "dear". This happens a lot in restaurants and we both find it condescending. I always tip less with this happens. Just a word of note for your servers.
There were three of us in our party and we all found our food to be quite good. It was not amazing, but as far as sandwiches go they were good. I had gluten free bread and found it to be better than average.
Excellent food and service, interesting and varied menu; a great downtown place for a lunch meeting.
Every time I travel to Ottawa for work, I stay at the Marriott to have dined at Spin many times. The food is always good and the service is always excellent. My only issue is that the food is a bit pricey if I were to pay myself, but otherwise, I would have no issues recommending Spin because the staff always make you feel comfortable and the food is always pleasing,
The only reason to eat here is if you stay at the hotel and is too cold to go outside. Diner quality food and service at hotel restaurant prices.
I'll start by saying I never ever complain about restaurants..... But I was a little disappointed with the food at Easter Brunch. I was looking forward to the "waffle station" only to get there and realize I had to make the waffle myself! The waffle timer didn't work and the waffle exploded in front of me. To top it off there was absolutely no fruit or whipped cream or anything to put on a waffle.
The hot buffet was nearly empty on everything and didn't get refilled the whole time I was there.
The omelette station was an actual omelet station. :) it was good. The desserts were amazing and the service was good. Our waitress was super friendly.
I left feeling disappointed, a little hungry, and that $30 a person was not worth it that day.
I don't know if I'd ever go back.
Spin is a great place for a lunch with work colleagues. The atmosphere is relaxed and if you have a table by a window or wall, it is relatively quiet. the food is very good but a tad pricey, especially the salad builder.
I was very pleased with the quality of the food. The plates were well presented, the food was fresh and there is a good selection. We were well received by the maître D, however, the only negative aspect was the lady that was serving us, she did not have a very friendly demeanor. She was a bit brusque which was a little embarrassing since I was taking some colleagues from another country and would have liked if the service had been a little more friendly.
An old work colleague and I regularly get together at Spin for lunch. They always provide us with a table by the window, as per our request and the service is great. We usually have salads but I have had the quiche twice and it is very good. My friend had the fish and chips for the first time and found the fish batter to be very greasy. Overall, we enjoy Spin and will definitely go back. Thank you.
