We ate breakfast here as we awoke too soon for the continental breakfast. My husband had the canadian breakfast and I had an eggs benedict. Service was great and the food was good. My only complaint was that I requested my eggs benedict to be hard and they were still soft; however, I did not request that they be redone... More

I have tried a few restaurants in Ottawa for this. These guys did a great job. Portions for 10 were estimated correctly, warm up instructions were accurate and food got rave reviews. We appreciated the lovely pick up service with the turkey in a big wrapped present box - charming! The selection of 3 veggies, stuffing, tons of yummy gravy,... More

This year I decided that we were going to have friends in for Christmas eve dinner. I didn't want my Mom or myself to have to do any cooking, because most of the time the host/hostess doesn't have a break. I decided to order the Take Away Turkey dinner and I am not sorry that I did.

We have gone to Shallows for their Christmas dinner buffet for the last several years and always enjoyed it. This year with a new chef, they dropped the buffet and went with a table d' hote menu. It was a huge disappointment. Before going, I had decided on the prime rib of beef and my wife in the Cornish hen.... More
