This restaurant is pretty average and didn-t live up to the reviews. We went on a Saturday night around 7:30pm. The place was very busy. There was a table available in the "front porch" area just as you walk in. We didn't want to sit...More

Expect good value for tasty comfort food here. It is a local favourite spot so expect an energetic vibe. There is limited ground floor seating so expect to climb stairs.

I have been to Chez Lucien on several occasions, usually to eat. This place really is a hidden gem, probably because of its location. However, each time I went it was pretty lively and the service was great. First, I have to say that their...More

Chez Lucien has one of my favourite burgers in Ottawa: The Frida and Diego Burger. It's a small place with a great atmosphere! We've been coming here for years. Check it out!
