Three of my friends took me for lunch at Absinthe on a Monday which was not very busy in the restaurant. The waitress was amazing. She brought 4 or 5 different wines for us to sample before we each chose our wine.
Two of us have the Nicoise and two the beef Stroganoff. The presentations were appetizing and flavours very much to our liking. The dessert sampler was enjoyed by all os us.
I was given a complimentary dessert as a birthday favour.
It was a delightful, leisurely lunch with friendly but not intrusive service.

I really like the beef tartare and the chocolate fondant. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly. We enjoyed our experience.

This was my second visit to Absinthe. Food was delicious. Nice ambience and great service. I didn't try the Absinthe but one of my friends did. Excellent experience but my friends are always the best part.

We had the pleasure of tasting Absinthe's mushroom soup at a fundraiser for the Ottawa Food Bank earlier this year, and decided we would try a full meal for our anniversary. Incredible! The service was above and beyond, and the atmosphere was really cool!! Loved every moment and I can't wait to go back!!
