For some reason, whenever I visit Ottawa, I always end up at this restaurant. I haven't had a bad meal! It's a bit expensive but the food is good.

My boyfriend and I were visiting Ottawa and wanted to have a nice dinner out. Luxe was recommended to us by a few friends. Overall, our meal was good. Dessert was my favourite part ! The servers were friendly and the service was great, although it did take a while to have someone take our order and bring us drinks... More

We've always loved this place and have been here many times over more than a decade. However today was a let down. The beef tartare on bread had so much whatever the heck sauce was mixed in it tasted like a church lady devilled ham sandwich. The salmon tartare had a lot of panko and there was more crunch than...

We visited here for brunch and were really impressed with the food options. The make your own omelettes were delicious. The fruit tasted fresh, and the food was all very well made. The waiters were kind and there was not a long wait for the food which was very nice.

My wife and I had resolved to hit some downtown restaurants starting in 2017, rather than our old suburb favs, and decided to start early with this one. Not a good choice. The service was slow, and it took forever to get anything. Which is odd as they didn't seem to lack staff, I saw a lot of people working,... More

Visited here on a coworker's recommendation for a weekday lunch. The restaurant is charming, with a mostly "business casual" type of clientele. The location is right on the corner, making it easy to find and offering lots of tables with a view of the streets. The windows also look like they slide open, which would be lovely in the summer...

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.
