This restaurant has been on our wish list for some time. We finally tried it for a romantic dinner but were disappointed. Overrated for the price. Service was slow, inattentive, dismissive and well below average for a high end restaurant. Wine list is very limited. The only positive was the "surprise" appetizer. Mains were underwhelming, they don't know how to... More

The food is always great. But for the prices charged, I resent leaving hungry! And for the record, I am not a particularly large eater.

I ordered the steak frites and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived with a tasty side salad. Steak was a bit overcooked but fries were delicious. Desserts sounded delish but didn't partake given it was lunch.

Went to Allium for my birthday dinner. The food was pretty good. The atmosphere was also nice. I would rate it 6.5 out of 10 as a whole.

My husband and I tried Allium after hearing about it from friends. We both loved our appetizers and main courses. My husband ordered the surprise dishes and liked them all. I was not as adventurous but loved my food (I tried the Snow Crab cake and Albacore Tuna for main and Beet Cured Salmon for appetizer). We also tried a... More

We had been hearing about Allium for several years now, and it had been recommended by several foodie friends. My wife and I were at a matinee at the theatre around the corner, so we came here for dinner. The atmosphere is minimalist, but we'll done and modern. The background music was really good! The service was both knowledgeable and... More

I recently re-visited this cute spot just off the beaten track in Westboro and was pleasantly surprised. The dishes were well presented, food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would not hesitate to return.

We asked them to call us if any tables opened up and they did as promised and we were able to have dinner at 8pm. When... More

The girl at the door, welcomed us and hung our coats in the closet. I hadn't been here in some year and the interior is very nice. The service was excellent by a nice young man. We had asked to have the owner/chef sign our "Ottawa Cooks" book, which by the way they are also selling them here, and he... More
