I have come here for a few times for dinner, and really love the steak frites here. I highly recommend it, especially the frites and mayo. But I came on a Saturday morning for brunch, and the food was amazing. I went for the breakfast poutine, and my friends both went for the frittatas. I am not an egg person,... More

Stopped in for Brunch on a Saturday morning, and we were surprised that the restaurant was not crowded. In fact, we were the only ones. The menu had some interesting variations on eggs benedict, including serving them on potato latkes, as an option. I had duck and cheese curd on mine, and my guest had Californian, which had avocado and... More

For such a small place, it's good that the atmosphere isn't stuffy. Prices are higher, so expect a slightly older crowd to go with it. The food is rather delicious, fresh, and well prepared and they have an attentive waiting staff.

This was a treat for me while on vacation with my 10-yr old. We had lobster poutine. I had a tomato salad and my son had a burger. It was all delicious. The service was a little slow and we couldn't figure out why since it wasn't busy.

Excellent service, but the cook (notice I did not say chef) had no idea how to choose or cook a steak. I ordered the 20 oz T-bone with salad and au-jus. The salad was fine, nothing to write home about, the complimentary bread has heated to toast consistency, and the butter had fennel ( so I had licorice toast). Now... More

A very upscale place focusing on burgers done their way. After always making The Worx our must visit burger and pouting stop on a visit to Ottawa, it has been replaced. Wife had the duck confit burger with Caesar salad and I had the lobster burger with frites. Both uniquely outstanding. The service was spot on and the outdoor seating... More
