THE WORST RESTAURANT I'VE EVER BEEN AT ALL MY LIFE, AND I'VE BEEN TO A LOT OF RESTAURANTS ALL OVER THE WORLD. I was there for my friend's 18th birthday dinner, one of my friends and I came later, the waitress showed us where our table was, we sat down, and she goes "what would you like to order?" like frig she didn't even give us a menu and kept on rushing us to the point that my friend ordered randomly what everyone else was ordering. I told her to come back later, she comes back less than a minute later and kept on returning every couple of seconds, extremely rude, and rushing me. She acted annoyed and was extremely impatient. Then I ordered my food, it came very late, but did not taste bad. Then there were all sorts of noises coming from the kitchen as we ate and it was not enjoyable at all. A couple of minutes later, when everyone had at least 1/3 of their plates full, she came back rushing us, even though most tables were empty. She rushed everyone into giving up their food, and took one of the girls' plates(which was also full) when she was in the washroom without asking any of us about it. Then when she was trying to take my food away I said no, I am not finished. She again kept on returning and standing over my shoulder waiting for me to finish. To add in, they were open 24/7 so there was no rush and we were there for less than 30mins. After a while I ended up being extremely sick of the place and gave up my food without even touching a 1/3 of it--all the rice. Then our checks came to us right away. She was again, extremely rude. I ordered my food for $14.99, and I ended up paying just over $19.00 because they had arrogantly included $2.70 tip--which I would NEVER include for the service we got-- and tax. I was very mad, ended up paying, and the waitress still had the nerve to go around asking us if we wanted our change back. I was so mad at this point, and said yes, she brought my change and threw it all over the table over my shoulder.

Ottawa poutine places to satisfy big cravings

Dunn’s likes to claim that it made poutine famous - a highly disputable claim, unless they are referring to outside of Québec. Still, theirs is wonderful. It is a great place to go after a night in the ByWard Market. Heck, I’d even go there for their smoked meat.
