In the area for three nights and we wanted one special meal. Upon the recommendation of the owner of Les Trois Erables, we reserved at the Maison. We were not disappointed. Everyone raved about their respective meal. The menu is interesting, and the recipes complex and sophisticated. The ambience is warm, friendly, and intimate.

Wow is the first word that comes to mind. What a wonderful little place. Just walking through the door being greeted by smiling faces starts off well. The food was amazing - such creativity. My husband and I each chose three appetizers and we loved each one equally. The dessert - they all sounded good but neither one of us... More

A truly wonderful experience from start to finish. The seafood duo was wonderful with lightly battered fried calamari and beautiful poached shrimp. The soup with spicy lentils and coconut milk was exceptional. Main had cloud like gnocchi with flavourful fork tender short rib. Creme brûlée was exceptional. Throughout service was polished and personal. This was a special experience. Merci!

Welcomed by the delightful front-of-house Sarah upon arrival, we were charmed by the the cozy ambiance of La Maison du Village. The in-house baked focaccia was so incredible that we purchased some to take home, and was a perfect opener. My braised lamb poutine was a fab flavour melange, based on perfectly crisped potato roesti, and my husband enjoyed his... More

I have not had such a great meal anywhere for several years. Although the menu is limited with about 5 appetizers, 4 mains and 4 desserts to choose from the food is simply amazing. I choose calamari two ways as my appetizer., braised short ribs on a broad noodle pasta as a main course and crepe brûlée for dessert. Others... More

We stopped in sans reservation after a stroll through this lovely village, and happened upon one of the best meals we've enjoyed in and around Ottawa. Ebullient, attentive, service, an unpretentious kitchen where terroir is omnipresent, were a prélude to a creative, original, masterfully executed meal. The calamari two-ways was on point: light, flavorful, a delightful starter, the pickerel was... More

The menu varies but offers some delicious and creative plates such as braised lamb poutine, pig cheek fetticcini and braised short ribs. High end food that will please a descerning pallet.... More

small and intimate restaurant with wonderful food. Great care in the quality of the food and the service. Good selection of wine at reasonable pricing. I have gone to literally 1000's of restaurants because of my work. I am careful about where I eat and the quality of the food. I would rate this place in the top tier. I... More

Rustic charm in the heart of Wakefield Village. We are a small 26 seat restaurant, with an outdoor patio that seats another 20. Our restaurant serves upscale comfort food, great wines and local brews. All while dining with views of the Gatineau River and hills.
