Very good food and nice vibe. A bit pricey for the portions and quality but would go back. Service was excellent and staff very friendly.
Oysters were delicious, charred squash very good, spaghetti snow crab was a bit salty as per other reviews but I like salty so I was ok with it but if ur not a fan of salt don’t order. Branzino was good but lacked flavour. The mashed potatoes were outstanding.
I haven’t been to many Ottawa restaurants but I’d give this one a try if u like ur food and aren’t on a tight budget.
The service is so welcoming and thoughtful. The cocktails are divine. The food is always fantastic. I usually get the branzino and always get some fries. Their vegetables are delicious as well as their various raw and seafood offerings. I really love their welks but they were not on the menu this visit. And even during Covid, the atmosphere is warm and provides a nice escape for a couple of hours.
This place is amazing. The food is delicious and the service is 10/10. You won’t be disappointed.
It is nice to let people know beforehand if you need the table back after 1.5 hours.
Wine was pricey and portion of steak frites was on the small side
Aside from the fact that a lot of beers weren’t available, the crab pasta was extremely salty, like the dropped the salt container in the dish. And that was the dish that came highly recommended... I’m sure it was a one off, but nonetheless disappointing
The service is great. The appetizers could be a bit better and more in portion considering the price. The vibe and decor is really nice with the music. A suggestion is to warm the plates for the food so that the dish like the steak doesn’t get cold fast.
Great dinning experience. The burgers and drinks were amazing. Service excellent. Felt almost like a true dining out experience given current restrictions.
Ordered the cipollini tarte tatin with goat cheese and bordelaise... it was delicious!!! And the wine selection is fantastic!
Food was great, service was amazing! Just one thing, the food was maybe just a little bit too expensive for the portion size! But the cocktails made up for it!
Always an outstanding meal and experience. It’s my favourite place to go!
Always a good time coming here! Outstanding food and the best service in the city!
Food was decent but menu changes every season. Their burgers are good. Short playlist, played the same music over again...overall not bad even value wise.
Great ambiance and lovely food. Definitely will be going back soon!
Some dishes were very very salty.
But overall very tasty
Outstanding restaurant, food amd service was top notch.
The food and service were excellent, but the music was WAY TOO LOUD. There were two of us, and we had to shout at each other to carry on a conversation. Aside from that, the experience was excellent. I would recommand Gitanes to friends with a caveat about the noise level.
Great experience. I think their menu was probably more exciting prior to COVID-19, but they are doing great considering the circumstances. Friendly staff. Tricky to find the entrance.
The food was delicious and the service was great! We went for a birthday date and we were treated so well! Can’t wait to go back.
Beautiful evening with great food and ambiance! There is a maximum of time to stay which is sad to leave when you are still enjoying ambiance, but understood.
Absolutely delicious food. Great options and ambiance.
Gitanes is fantastic every time I’ve dined here. And it is just as lively and experience on the outdoor patio in November. It was delicious with impeccable service as always, cozy, and warm, even on a rainy eve with their complimentary blankets, heaters and overhead canopy.
Our dinner was so delicious! We were so impressed and considering we were on a patio in 2degrees we were definitely warm enough. Overall great experience!
A fantastic evening with amazing wine, food and service. Thank you so much for the hospitality and care. Highly recommend the pomme aligot!
We had an excellent experience. The food was phenomenal and the service was exceptional. The patio was pretty crowded due to the nice weather which was slightly disconcerting due to Covid-19, but not the fault of the restaurant.
Delicious and creative food with incredible service! Will definitely be going back and recommending to all my friends!
Gitanes's waitstaff are perfectly professional, they have great timing with table check-ins and always pleasant. The food is spectacular and I always try something for the first time here. It's an experience. Romantic date night spot, or birthday celebrations— or staff appreciation (I've done all 3 ;) Will return, again and again. xo
Great food and great service. Love the cocktail menue. Highly reccomend.
From walking in to departure, service was friendly and attentive. I would say that during Covid, Gitanes is one of the few places where you still feel as if you are dining during pre-Covid times - the ambience is still there. Cocktails are a must have at Gitanes, as are their frites. I love seafood so I tend towards those dishes. This evening, the 6 of us tried the oysters, XO prawns, branzino, steak, 2 asparagus, celery, and the frites plus cocktails and a bottle of orange wine and a bottle of red wine. It was all delicious as always. I am so happy that Gitanes graces our town.
Cynthia, thank you so much for the kind words - it means a lot. You and friends are always a pleasure to host! Looking forward to seeing you soon, Amanda, GM
Our server was really nice and took the time to respond to all questions we had but it seemed to be very busy that night so the service was slow. We waited 15min for our wine to be served. The ambiance was fantastic and this is probably the main reason why I would go back.
really good restaurant! recommend it to everyone |
Amazing meal at Gitanes! We particularly enjoyed the creamed corn, the burger, the steak, and the gelato cake. We will be back!
Simply amazing! Definitely the best restaurant in Ottawa. Sea food is fresh and delicious! Excellent desserts! Service was top notch!
Amazing food and service. Gitanes never disappoints. Will definitely be coming back
Amazing evening, loved the service & atmosphere. Food was so delicious cant wait to be back for more- also great wine selection!
Food was incredible and service was top! Needs more gluten free options though...but they were very accommodating!
Beat resto in Canada's capital –without exception.
Amazing, just absolutely incredible dinner. Servers were fantastic, food and cocktails were divine and ambience was perfect. What more could you ask for?
Ambiance nulle. Plats bons sans plus mais le service fut tout à fat admirable. Seul le vin blanc de Touraine fut excellent.
Excellente soirée, beau cadre et le service est parfait
