I have eaten here a few times and each time the food and service was excellent. If this restaurant was in the US or Europe it would have a Michelin Star. The price was unbelievably reasonable for a 12 course menu.

Twelve courses with a half wine pairing over 5 hours : a wonderful evening ! Each course is a small serving of wonderfulness, creativity and fun. To enjoy, you have to be adventurous and open : we had fish, shrimp, scallop, chick, wapiti among other things. The highlight was this sweet course where we were served a sugary balloon concoction...

A wonderful multicourse adventure through the world of food, Atelier provides cuisine and service worth the price in this diamond in the ruff restaurant in Ottawa. Worth a visit for a special occasion.

Atelier is more than just dinner out, it's a culinary experience. Each of the 12 courses were interesting and challenged our senses. I was particularly impressed with the wine pairings: Atelier is the first place where the wine pairings actually triggered specific tastes for me. We also enjoyed our exploration of a sour beer before dinner. Highly recommended for foodies... More

If you are "food adventurous" you will love this restaurant. It's where fine dining meets molecular gastronomy and art. It's like nothing most people have experienced before and, most importantly, it's delicious. It's fine dining which tends to be pricier but you won't be disappointed!

From my first contact with Marc Lepine requesting a date of availability for our party to the end of our dining experience - nothing but professionalism, class and an artisan cuisine that won't soon be forgotten by anybody in attendance. They met the needs of our party (1 person with shellfish allergies, loved all alternatives served). The wine pairing is... More

This is a great restaurant experience. The food was delicious and the whole meal is very unique - a must try for foodies! This restaurant treats food as art! My husband and I are both vegetarians and they were extremely accommodating in changing the menu to meet our dietary needs.

Utterly superb, in all aspects. We've been twice for dinner, and once for lunch (during white truffle season). Perfection in all aspects - service, food, presentation, the works. A couple of the best meals I've ever had in my life.
