One of the best meals I have ever experienced. From the greeting at the front door to the complimentary birthday cupcake, this was a truly special evening. Gillan was the most attentive and respectful server who made every course enticing with his mouth watering descriptions....More

The 12 course tasting menu is really an experience at Atelier. They don't tell you in advance what you're going to get so it's a fun way to be pleasantly surprised each time. Of course, the meal is mind-blowing. The flavours, presentation and innovation is...More

I've been to many Michelin starred restaurants and I must say that this restaurant offers an exceptional quality of food, worthy of a starred-restaurant! The meal was creative and very tasty. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves food!

This is THE place. The attention to detail, the complete creativity, the service were so absolutely incredible. What a special evening. Blind tasting was amazing. Wine pairings were magical. I wish thus was closer. Great way to ending our three days in Ottawa.

Sweetie and I always make it a point to stop by l'Atelier whenever we are in Ottawa. Their tasting menu is always creative and fun, and their recent addition of a second floor gives everyone more room. As always, they handled my dietary restriction (gluten)...More
