I’ve never actually eaten in the restaurant per se, but my partner and I have been getting their gourmet take out packages. Our first meal was for Christmas, and it was so good we made sure to book them for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day,...and we just booked them for Father’s Day. The instructions for heating these high-end delights are incredibly good. As for the food? Wow! If it is this good as a takeout, I can’t wait to visit after COVID. Highly recommended!More

This was incredible. I ordered the Valentine’s Day contactless curb-side pickup. Four course meal including dessert. Everything was perfect- it came with instructions for reheating that you could not go wrong by. Also had instructions for plating. They really went above and beyond to create...a meal that let us really enjoy ourselves and forget about Covid for one evening. This is the gold standard that I have become used to with Cordon Bleu. All I ask now is that they create course to teach us how to recreate that incredible meal.More

Service is top notch, menu changes weekly with 2 options for app/main (so you can visit twice a week!) Amazing spot to spend a lunch with girlfriends - we were mainly impressed with their tiny tables to hold your purse! Food is ALWAYS outstanding

Signatures is associated with the brand Cordon Bleu School but the students are not preparing your food. Rather, this unique French restaurant located in a century-old mansion in Sandy Hill offers the diner a tantalizing experience of ambiance, service and wines. The gastronomique cuisine inspired...by the creativity of the French chef and his team will not disappoint. An ideal spot for weddings and special occasions.More

I cannot believe that the service sector in Ottawa has dropped so low that it has reached this institute, staffing has become that difficult. From the doorman to the waitresses, the service has been so poor that the delicious food could not be enjoyed. For...a bill of $330 before tax and tip, this is a great disappointment. It is time for this restaurant to reflect while I find another place to dine. One star for the food that really deserve 5 but the service destroyed the fantasy.More

We've had dinner at this restaurant last night. My daughter lives in Ottawa and we drove up from Montreal in freezing rain and did not want to cancel this event I had been looking forward to for a long time. All 4 of us had...the 'menu de degustation' (5-course meal) and each dish was delicious and very nicely displayed. I mentioned to our waiter that I knew someone who is connected with this organization (Cordon Bleu) and who knew the chef and that it would be nice to say hello. Well, I was told chef Yannick was too busy to come out (there were 8 guests all evening!!!). I found that very disappointing and bad PR. My evening would have left a more lasting impression in my book if he would have graciously appeared. Big - (minus) for M. Anton☹️More

1) Service is excellent 2) Five courses plus wine pairing is excellent. 3) Atmosphere is casual yet refined. 4) Bar is cozy. Will definitely go back. Thanks for a superb evening.

We had the opportunity to dine at Signatures twice in the last month and both times were extraordinary experiences. We greatly appreciated the ambiance which allows reasonable conversation, On our second visit we enjoyed our meal in the bar area which gave our party of...5 a private space, Our first visit was on a Thursday where the “blind menu” was available and delightful. One of our party is vegetarian and her needs were seamlessly met, which is not always the case with French cuisine. The dining experience is made special by outstanding service. Kirk is a consummate professional and made both occasions memorable for all involved.More

My husband and I (both 30 years old) went here for dinner to celebrate an anniversary after reading the positive reviews. While we had a nice experience, nothing stood out as amazing and we expected more from a high end restaurant. The restaurant itself and...the ambiance was lovely. The service was fine, but not exceptional. The food was good and presented beautifully, but the taste was nothing spectacular as we'd expect from a place run by Le Cordon Bleu. We had the octopus appetizer to share (too small to share), my husband had the lamb, and I had the fish. For dessert we had the lemon crumble and chocolate mousse, which was my favourite part of the meal.More

My husband and I went to Signatures last week for a belated birthday lunch. We enjoyed the wonderful corn soup with tortilla puree and my husband had the duck confit and I had the pickerel. Everything was delicious and was followed by a yummy dessert....Portions are not large and the menu (at least for lunch, is quite limited). Service was top notch and the restaurant is lovely. $39.00 per person plus wine, tax and tip. An expensive lunch but a nice treat once in a while.More
