To celebrate our wedding anniversary we chose to dine at Bistro Signatures because the ambiance and old world charm provided a romantic atmosphere. Our primary server, Hillary, ensured we had a pleasurable experience and paced the courses perfectly. We chose the set promotional 4 course menu with house wine ($120) which did not disappoint. Every course was picture perfect and delicious including the Amuse Bouche and sweet bite at the end our meal.

Our meal at Signatures was probably one of the nicest meals I've had in the past couple of years. I ordered that seared deer loin with chestnuts, fresh ricotta pasta and roasted cauliflower and royal gala apple galette. The deer loin was so tender, it felt like it was melting in your mouth. I love chestnuts, you don't see them to often in menus in Ottawa. There was just a small amount of pasta on the plate and it was very good. The sauce was also just excellent. My husband had the strip loin steak which he thoroughly enjoyed as well. We chose 2 different desserts, a caramel tarte with lime curd, and white chocolate ice cream, as well as a frangipane mousse slice ( cake on the bottom, mousse on top, all almond flavored). The desserts were lovely and not overly sweet, especially the caramel tart which had the taste of burnt sugar ice cream. This meal was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

After being there, I must say it's the best restaurant in Ottawa. I have a chef as a partner and it's the only restaurant I would recommend. Believe me we went to all of the restaurants in Ottawa and it's nothing to compare with Signatures. It is a top notch restaurant and the service is more than outstanding. The waiter Alexandre is the most knowledgeable and very much a people person. The Chef Yannick Anton is the "Finest of them all"! If you have a romantic evening and you want to impress your partner, book the room call "Chapel" Best

Have not been back since the conversion to the bistro. Am pleasantly delighted that it maintained the same high quality of food preparation and presentation in perhaps a more modern setting. Portions were quite generous...foie gras came in 2 substantial cubed pieces. And the escargots with tomato tosti and black squid ink cracker was sublime. So were the main courses of duck and the lamb. A pretty good wine list that is perhaps as expected to be slightly biased towards French vineyards.

Also excellent dessert with passion fruit puree and black sesame ice cream which, to us, is as good if not better than the ones we had in Japan.

And excellent chocolate and pistachio macaroons to cap off an excellent dinner.

We have often spoken of going but never had. Until yesterday. It was my wife's birthday.
Our table was in a quieter corner of the main floor dining room very intimate without being closed off. The service was excellent the staff were attentive and paced our courses to us rather than continually banging them out. Each course was well presented and tasted delicious. The sommelier is knowledgeable and all the serving staff are engaging and enjoy what they do.

Everything on this menu appears to be excellent some diners were having set menus others mixing and matching

Best value is the set menu options the "blind" one on Tuesday Wednesday or the seasonal one.

Both offer an excellent dinner and you can pair the wine. So why make it complicated

The restaurant is attached to the Cordon Bleu school but is not part of the school.

There are multiple dining rooms which can be reserved and all have excellent decor.

It was a great pleasure to enjoy a celebration there. Simply perfect. Also enjoyable the ice sculptures outside... very nice as well
