Excellent service. Very quiet. Food was very nice.
Le brunch n’a pas été une experience surprenante, la tour de fruit de mer était bonne et les produits frais mais la suite aurait pu être meilleure, ce serait bien qu’ils revisitent leur menu ( la salade de betterave, les œufs bénédictines et canards confits ainsi que la burrata étaient moyens). Sinon bel édifice rempli d’histoires!
We were not advised prior to booking the reservation it would take over an hour and a half so we missed our pool time. The pool being the key element of our stay.
I am not sure the first food I want in the day to be a seafood tower with raw fish but the prawns were delicious and so was the fish cakes, and I hate fish.
Service was great, no complaints.
Expensive but that would be the expectation of a restaurant like that.
A bit pricy for the food as the most satisfying dish was the last - Mac cheese - and the desserts were very average. I would have expected more from Fairmont. The first two servings were barely warm. We will not go back for sure. Nice to be in the Chateau however as very nice.
Excellent. Two days later, I still think of the food with delight. Thank you so much!
Phenomenal meal and service. Worth every penny. The Fairmont never disappoints.
Notre repas était délicieux et le service impeccable, sans parler des portions plus que généreuses!
Turned out 30% more expensive vs. fixed reservation price.
Apologize for being rude but my experience was quite disappointed. First of all, I was waiting for 5 courses, like Open Table displays. When I arrived there it was 4 courses with some options that I was not quite happy with. Besides, the service was not too spectacular. I had to serve my wine myself and when my third course arrived I had no plate, knife and fork in the meantime my food was getting cold. In addition to that, the wines pairing options were ridiculous, wines that are sold at LCBO for 13 dollars. The sommelier didn't even have the whim to choose something that would delight the customer's eyes or think about them in terms of experience. C’mon we have a bunch of wines with good prices and value. Finally, I believe it’s time for you to review the food options or the value you owe for that because offering chicken with waffle was not a taste experience or this is not something you wanna offer to your customer. Taking into account to have a reputation to uphold, right Fairmont? Nothing finesse here only appearances!
A very nice occasion. The food and service were excellent, as always. The view towards Parliament made it very atmospheric.
For a lovely experience - great food, impeccable service and quiet so one can converse with their companion for a romantic dinner.
We had the 4 course meal. There was 2 pairings per course which none of them went together. The chef did not offer anything out of the ordinary. Some items lacked flavour.
I would suggest 1 outstanding item per course to focus on flavour rather than assortment choices.
Poor communication between the kitchen and waiter.
Waited 30 minutes between courses on a 5 course meal.
Went for brunch and was amazed! Food quality and service was out of this world!! Highly recommend!!!
The food was not as expected and experienced in prior visits. The coffee was really bad. I mentioned to the waitress that the coffee wasn’t as good as I tried here before and she came back saying we changed coffee brand. No action was taken to provide better coffee. Food was cold and service was a bit slow. Prior experience with Buffet style is better and waiter was more attentive.
The quantity of food was amazing for the price! Original, seasonal fare, delicious, sustaining.
It was an awesome experience. Food was delicious and service exceptional.
Very good dinner. Nice atmosphère. Respectfull of Covid rules of social distancing.
Very diverse choices eventhough it Was a set menu. The service was excellent, very friendly and accomodating
We had a very bad experience for my birthday
1. We only had option for the prefix menu
I had to guess one vegetarian and tithe other one diabetic
And the waitress gave option or additional menu
But later they said that no possible
The food were like sample
Food tasting like no chef involved
Some dishes looks like food were sitting in the shelf for many months : very old good
We were very disappointed with the price and the quality of food
We don’t recommend this restaurant
We tried the Discovery testing menu. Overall, the taste was good. Servers were polite, but the customer service was standard. I think I expected a bit more considering the amount and place.
Limited to the five course dinner. No other menu available. Waitress had little interest or knowledge to explain the variety of premium wines that we paid for. Kitchen staff served courses out of order, first course arrived before our pre-dinner cocktail. Seemed like an assembly line process with little effort from wait staff. I realize COVID is a factor but it shouldn't be an excuse.
Our Family lunch platter for two was excellent. The food was more than enough for us.
The seafood was fresh and tasty. The combination of food items paired well with each other and all dishes were flavourful. It was served timely and staff were very pleasant and helful in explaining all the dishes.
We will certainly be back and will recommend the restaurant.
Really enjoyed the service. Catered to our diet needs and food was absolutely wonderful.
Great spot for a nice dinner, the food and service was outstanding.
Excellent experience! Would recommend. Not one complaint.
The tasting menu was so varied and so delicious. The wine pairing was carefully chosen to complement the food and a good value for the price.
Me and my wife had a wonderful time at this Christmas brunch. The food was delicious, service very good, and there was lots of room for social distancing.
Excellent food and service although a little pricey.
Wilfred's service and food was PHENOMENAL!! The staff was attentive and courteous; the food was DELICIOUS, well-presented, and a great combination of flavours. I will definitely be back!
Great service and food! We had a wonderful time. We'll be back soon.
Atmosphere and service were great, as was the premium wine pairing. While the food was good, and elements were very good, it didn’t quite make the grade on the whole at this price point.
Great food, great service, a special place for dinner or brunch
amazing food, amazing service. nothing to complain about.
What a wonderful brunch; amazing food; phenomenal service; beautiful atmosphere.
Amazing lobster mac & cheese, veal meatloaf, scallops, and desserts! Venue is classy and luxurious.
it was good and tasty. Service amazing. I found it didn't have alot of variety...for the price. It used to be a lot better.
Dear Sara, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. Rest assured that we take such comments to heart. We do hope you return one day soon as we are confident that you will be impressed with the improvements. Sincerely, Marion te Winkel Director of Operations
the chair was dirty with bread crumbs, the $49.99 was missing or had undercooked items, we had to wait for clean plates, this place is $30 more than Tuckers’ marketplace for half the items
We regret your unacceptable experience. We do hope you return one day and allow us the chance to regain your trust and loyalty. We are confident you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Marion te Winkel Director of Operations
Our experience was quite unpleasant. We chose the buffet, which was ridiculously overpriced ($49) for the quality of the food - for example, the ‘hot’ food was lukewarm at best (cold waffles and pasta are not good). The variety was a positive, at least. The $7 ‘fresh squeezed orange juice’ seemed like it was freshly poured out of a Tropicana box.
The server we had was inattentive and at times rude. For example, while we were still placing our orders for drinks she began to walk away. After bringing us our beverages, she did not inquire whether refills were necessary.
We would not choose to go back to this restaurant, for the buffet or anything else.
Please rest assured that you experienced is certainly not typical of our usual high standards. We regret your disappointing experience. We do hope you return one day as we are confident you will be pleased with the improvements. Sincerely, Marion te Winkel Director of Operations
Just LOVE the food, ambience and service at Wilfrid's. Probably the best brunch in Ottawa. SIX stars!
Dear Carla, We are delighted that you enjoyed your Brunch in Wilfrid’s! We do hope to welcome you again soon. Sincerely, Marion te Winkel Director of Operations
Overpriced brunch buffet. Selection was limited, had expected far more for $49 pp + tax before tip.
There are other places in Ottawa at far less cost.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us and others on Open Table. We do look forward to hopefully seeing you again one day soon. Sincerely, Marion te Winkel Director of Operations
