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
Great place for a special occasion! Exceptional food and service.
Everything was so delish and it has such a cute, romantic vibe. The server was also very helpful and efficient.
The best ambiance, friendly and well trained servers, awesome owner and most importantly AMazING food and drinks. Best spot in town.
Maybe it was the fact that it was our first real restaurant outing in the pandemic era, but my partner and I really enjoyed our night here. The food is playful and novel but still accessible, and there are plenty of options for both the adventurous and those seeking comfort food. The staff were attentive and helped craft a memorable meal; an unlisted Alsace red in particular was a wise choice by the somm'. The cold bar may be the calling card, but the grilled meats also were very tasty.
We were a bit worried that Gitanes would be more style than substance - we were happy to be wrong! A great night out.
An intimate setting, with social distancing measures in place, with and authentic cuisine.
Since traveling is prohibited due to the pandemic Gitanes makes you feel like you are in Paris on a patio. :)
Customer service and considerations were impeccable and food mouthwatering.
Drinks were creative, colorful and refreshing.
Really great. Thank you. Really interesting food.
Our favourite special celebration restaurant in Ottawa. I’ve said it before, people should look to this place for a masterclass in how to run a restaurant, from the management, to the kitchen, to the front of house staff and servers. They have repeatedly amazed. Special shout out to Stephanie! There should be an award in Ottawa for people like her.
First time, definitely I will be back, the food, service everything was really good
Such a wonderful restaurant! Lovely ambience, great service, and beautiful cuisine!! We are so lucky to have this restaurant in Ottawa...
Was lucky enough to get to experience my dinner at the chefs table and it did not disappoint, the chef Mitch walked us through the menu and made the whole evening very engaging. The whole staff was friendly and attentive and the food was superb from the great selection of the raw bar to the mouth watering pastas. Would definitely recommend and will be back soon!
The food was delicious. Service was also amazing. The waitress was very friendly and helpful with the menu
Great food and excellent service. It’s expensive, but you get what you pay for. Would definitely come back!
Innovative menu, welcoming and knowledgeable staff, excellent execution of dishes, many of which not often seen (e.g. Pomme Aligot, which were exceptional). Overall an excellent experience. The only miss was the Escargots, which weren't -- substituted whelks were pretty much tasteless and had an unappetizing texture.
The best part of this restaurant is the service. It’s outstanding and the food doesn’t disappoint. Would recommend!
We only had three vegetarian dishes. They were delicious, colorful and flavorful. The savory tarte tatin is a hit! Our waiter was perfect, both personal and professional.
However the vegetarian options are very few and no vegan option at all. I believe this type of restaurant should venture more into vege dishes - lots of local vegetables are available. We unfortunately won't go to Gitanes too often for lack of choice.
Thank you for sharing feedback from your recent dinner, it's much appreciated. We are glad you enjoyed the service as well as the tarte tatin. Our dinner menu changes regularly, and in anticipation of warmer months stay tuned for summer vegetables!
Everything was beyond expectations. The “let the chef feed you” experience was absolutely incredible and so worth it. Highly, highly recommend.
All the food was delicious, even the squash we didn't order but they gave us accidentally. The service is so good I get warm fuzzy feelings just thinking about it - they can read my mind and know which wines I prefer! Of course I want to go back, whenever restaurants are open again ....
Amazing food 👍
So, I think it’s unfair to write a review on food when you’ve tried 10% of the menu. The cippolini tarte is a must try! It was perfect. The oeufs mayonnaise have a strong anchovy flavour which isn’t really the way it’s described on the menu as most people don’t assume that the word “tonnato” means it will taste super fishy. I did like them, but my boyfriend gagged. Lol. The burger was great, moist and great bun, BUT it does need something tangy like like dijon or sweet cornichons or something to offset how rich it is. I would recommend asking for something tangy , I’m sure they would accommodate you. The fries are amazing!!!! The French onion soup was alright, honestly it didn’t have the richness and depth I would have expected from them. Might have just been a batch that didn’t reduce as long as it should have. With that all being said I’d love to go back and try other items. The ambiance is great and super stylish. However I didn’t have a drink to sip until 30 min. after my reservation time which I find I unacceptable. They sat me at the bar as my reservation
table wasn’t ready. I was ignored by the bartenders as they did there thing for 5 min. chatting with each other and pouring drinks for other people who already had glasses in front of them. A simple “hello will be with you soon” would have been nice since the bar is so small and I was right in front of them. Then they sat me at my table before I had a chance to order. Then by the time she came and took my order and came back with the wine it was 30min. Not cool at all. She apologized but the whole thing was a turn off. Then it took 10 min. to pay because they have a bad signal as the restaurant is in a demi- basement. So about 40 min. of time there was not pleasant. Def. worth a try as it’s a lovely place with some great appetizers, and our server was a sweetheart. However if my second visit is like the first then I won’t return again.
A fantastic date night! The food here is fabulous. A nod to classic french cuisine which is well executed. We enjoyed every dish we tried. Portions were generous and we actually couldn't finish our mains which was a welcomed surprise. Only sad it meant we could not try the desserts. Decor and ambiance have both been well executed. Hope this place sticks around. Welcomed gem on the Ottawa food scene.
Service was good but attentiveness did start to drop as the evening progressed.. which is our only complaint.
Wow. Never thought I’d eat squash that would change my life.
Excellent all around! Enjoyed every bite and the service was 5 stars.
Loved every bite and the service was fantastic! Exquisite menu - great ambiance. Would 100% recommend.
