Im fauna dreht sich alles darum, was wir am meisten lieben: Essen und Trinken mit Freunden und der Familie in einem fröhlichen Ambiente. Unsere Speisekarte ist saisonal ausgerichtet. Wo immer möglich, unterstützen wir Landwirte und Produzenten aus der Region. Wir lieben diese Gegend und unseren Standort und sind glücklich, in Centretown ansässig zu sein. Wir haben gerne Spaß in der Küche. Wir servieren kleine Gerichte, sodass Sie mehr als nur eine einzige Speise probieren können. Wo immer möglich, verwenden wir Zutaten aus der Region. Unsere Inspiration gewinnen wir von den Orten, an denen wir uns aufhalten, an denen wir gewesen sind und von Dingen, die wir gerne machen würden.

Fauna has staying power! Some restaurants hit the market with fanfare, but after a couple of years, the fanfare seems to disappear and the experience becomes lacklustre. Not so with Fauna. I am not sure how many years they have been around (more than 5 I suspect) but the food and the experience, matched by a super ambiance and location, combine to give a great dining experience. I have been going there for many years now and continue to enjoy. Well done Fauna!

Fauna is great. The only downside was the lack of gluten-free dessert! Just seems odd to me that when even chain restaurants offer things that are "gluten-free" or "gluten-free friendly" to be in a nice restaurant that doesn't. This wasn't the first time this has happened to me when I have been a guest at Fauna.

Loved the duck with Kimchee. Very original and unusual pairing. Well done. Loved the quick service. Your kitchen is obviously very well organized.

Disappointing relative to the last few times I’ve been (the last few times I’d done the tasting menu whereas this time we ordered from the menu). Too bad had become one of my favourite restaurants in Ottawa but no longer. Service was also lacking considering we had “bad” scallops and it wasn’t handled well

Normally this restaurant is great. But this visit both meals, steak were not so good. The fries were overdone and they had no bokchoy which we think makes this plate. Hard to get the waiters attention

Worth the visit! Really enjoyed the tasting menu. Bison cheeks were amazingly tender and a crab rangoon crispy roll was excellent. Each course was tasty and memorable though nothing was quite perfect- a cold sauce here, bland puree there, desert with no relief from sweet. Just small things that kept me from 5 stars. I look forward to going back, but this place didnt quite meet my very high expectations.

The service was impeccable. The mains were amazing. I found the prices a bit high. I did not enjoy the ham appetizer but absolutely loved the duck main. My main feedback is the price of the wine list. The cheapest bottles are $60 and there are only a few of them. I think this is a limiting price point for many consumers.

The ham dish tastes just like I'm eating cold cut ham from the grocery store. Nothing special about this dish and not worth the money. The red deer tartar is amazing.

The restaurant received very good reviews and was recommended by a colleague, however, our experience was very disappointing. In a party of five, not one of us was satisfied with our meal. The servers also never asked us if we enjoyed our meals. The ambiance was really nice though.

We had the chef's special 5 course dinner. Each small plate was brilliant, creative and delicious. Cedar oil? Never heard of cedar oil. Babaganoush as a sauce for incredible sampling of beef shoulder. Wine list is very avant garde. Hip spot.

Amazing and varied combinations. Everything we ordered was a gustatory adventure. I eat to live, not live to eat so that is saying something. Definitely a keeper, we will be back and will recommend to friends. Stellar service to match the outstanding skills in the crafting of all offerings. It took all the restraint I could muster not to take tongue to the tableware and glean every last drop.

This visit was disappointing. The eggplant appetizer lacked flavour and the ceviche was also bland.
Other experiences have been great, so hopefully this was a one-off.

No heirloom tomatoes in tomato heirloom salad. That says it all. The halibut fish cake was overwhelmed by the fried outside so you couldn’t taste the fish. The fish and chips was the winner. Batter not too thick and fish moist and flaky. This was for lunch. Their only rosé wine by the glass is very ordinary. Disappointed

Went there for dinner and drinks with a few friends. Even though there was a widespread power outage, they honoured our reservation but could only serve cold dishes. We thought the staff did an amazing job under difficult conditions. We enjoyed the food and our server was excellent. It’s too bad all their plates/bowls are black/dark grey - with no lights we couldn’t see our food at all, which was pretty funny. We will return so we can try some cooked/hot food next time.

The overall look of the restaurant is good, trendy but pretty small. The ambiance was inexistant, very noisy and charged. The waitress was helpfull but very awkward. We ended up only having appetizers and going to another restaurant for the main course. The oysters were good and fresh but the ham was just some shreded cold cuts with a bunch of parmesan flakes thrown on top. I could barely taste the truffle.

Overrated.

Value for your dollar wasn't quite there for the tasting menu or even a la carte items - very small portions. The service was also lacking, we booked for two, but were seated at a table of six, we are asked to switch to the bar because a party of 6 arrived - fortunately we were having dessert. Also at times (e.g.: Water was not filled / no carafe), the bar tenders are too busy fulfilling table orders and are not attentive to those at the bar.

While great service, food quality is over hyped. Positioned and priced as fairly high end but feels more like decent bistro trying to move towards finer dining without success

Went in with my wife while we were in town and loved it. We shared everything and and let the server guide us with recommendations. My wife told her what she liked as far as drinks and the bar tender whipped something together it was an excellent experience.
