Great location in the heart of Somerset village, a short walk to Bank street. The decor is pleasant and the place was quiet while we were there, but it would be pretty loud if the restaurant were full. The server was attentive and friendly, and well informed of the menu and wine list. The food was fantastic. Up market Lebanese, good for a couple's night out.
The service was AMAZING! Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. Joked with us and made us feel like we were old friends.
Overall, it was a great experience. The food was excellent! The cashew pomegranate dip was delicious. The chicken was slightly over cooked but the taste was really delicious. The fried cabbage excited my taste buds. The tahini ice cream bar was tasty! The best service and servers. The ambiance and food presentation was better than expected. They even had a surprise for us at the end for our special occasion. No complaints - definitely recommend this place. PS the menu is halal except for tuna, meat kebabs and the rabbit meat dish.
Quintessentially the best Lebanese food I’ve tasted. Two of our 4 guests come from Lebanese background and were completely blown away by the flavour profiles and combinations. We all collectively gave every dish a 10/10 - amazing! And the anniversary macarons were a lovely treat - thank you!!
The service was excellent, but the fois was okay. I was really disappointed with the salmon and the salad.
Beautiful relaxing environment that serves delicious food. The service is high-class with lots of attention. A must-go place if you go to Ottawa.
The food was amazing, so many different flavors. The staff was super friendly and the service was exceptional.
Lovely meal with a delicious and unique menu. Excellent cocktails and good value.
Great restaurant. Small quantities but each bite is delicious. Would be nice to add a few candles on the tables in the evening.
OMG. This is the place. Service was wonderful. We went on Sunday where the had a special menu with a tasting menu and you got a great variety of menu items. The tastes were memorable, quality 10 out of 10, and great staff. We will be back.
Staff at fairouz really made our anniversary a special event. Food was delicious and vegan options were easy to find. Will definitely be back!
Went for anniversary dinner. Busy but not too loud. They gave us a nice card for our anniversary.
Food was excellent.
Atmosphere delightful. Thank you for the birthday surprise.
This was my second visit to this restaurant and it was namely to introduce my husband to the wonderful tastes of Fairouz. It will definitely not be our last visit as we hope to continue to enjoy the incredible food, service and setting.
This was my second time dining at Fairouz, and it was exceptional! The weather was favourable enough, that we were able to enjoy our meal on their well acquainted patio. As always, the service and food were splendid!
Service was outstanding and the food was incredible. Cocktails very unique and delicious and complimented the food very well. Highly recommend the pomegranate cashew dip.
Everything about Fairouz was perfect! Taylor was our server and she explained everything in incredible detail without sounding pretentious. For the appetizers we had the Mohammar dip which was amazing! The flavours were so on point with a very unique texture that was intriguing and full of Indulgence. The olives complimented the dips very well. As our entree we chose the chicken and paired it with the cauliflower. Both were absolutely perfect! This place is a must-try!!
In my opinion, this is consistently the best more impressive food establishment in Ottawa.
Fairouz delivers once again. The meal started with a variety of delicious and original takes on Mediterranean mezze served with hot fresh pita bread right out of the oven. A bottle of Pinot noir from burgundy matched perfectly with the zaatar crusted lamb with cauliflower and tahini on the side. Only wish they would top up our glasses more often.
Cool vibes but overpriced for mediocre food. Good service good ambiance.
Fantastic experience. Lived up to expectations. Hope to return when next time in Ottawa!
The service as always was outstanding. The flavours are so well balanced.
We always come to Fairouz for celebration. Food is always great. Service is always good.
Amazing food! So inventive! Service could be a bit more professional at those prices.
Excellent food and excellent service! 100% recommend
Hands down second to none restaurant in Ottawa. Great middle eastern food; great ambiance; but, above all, great service. Visited the restaurant because of our Anniversary; our table was ready and neat and they received us with a greeting card signed by the staff. At the end of the dinner, they surprised us with a complimentary macaroons dessert with a Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. We love it. definitely returning.
It was a great place to experience Middle eastern food. The service was very thoughtful and quick. The food was excellent and the presentation awesome! I highly recommend!
Delicious as usual with the added great service
My absolute favourite restaurant in Ottawa. The sumac chicken and dip platter are outstanding and the atmosphere and service are first-rate.
Our second time here. There will be a third!!!
This is still a good restaurant but their mezza menu has significantly thinned out and I feel as though the quality of the dishes has also decreased in past years. This used to be a wonderful food experience. Not sure what’s changed or if it was just my most recent experience! The atmosphere is still lovely though.
Excellent. I really enjoyed the unique flavor combinations. The service was friendly and inviting. I would definitely go back.
The lamb dish was divine. We enjoyed the chicken dish, although the meat seemed a little dry. The rest was absolutely perfect, with impeccable service.
Great experience . Had person with hearing aids and they found it very noisy. At stage where we will be looking for quieter easier conversation venues in general. ANPL is a good idea.
This was my third time and my wife's first at Fairouz. Amazing food, great service. Creativity is spectacular. My wife has an Egyptian background and throughout enjoyed how the flavours played with her senses - bringing back memories of family meals yet presented in such a unique manner.
Such an elegant place to spend a memorable evening!
Time and time again, Fairouz offers high quality food, exceptional service, with incredibly knowledgeable staff, in a well appointed atmosphere.
The vegetarian options are always tasty and on the menu this season, their cashew pomegranate dip was outstanding!
Amazing experience. We loved it and can not wait to go back!
Everything was fantastic.. we just found that we were sitting a bit too close to the other table and could hear the whole conversation.
The food was excellent. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I would highly recommend Fairouz to my family and friends.
Staff were all amazing and the food was incredible. We had such a fantastic experience. Would definitely go back...
