Last night we celebrated another Anniversary at Signatures. Each time we go we are overwhelmed with the incredible food and outstanding service. They seated us in our favourite 'red' room and had it all to ourself...what a easant surprise as it was so quaint and romantic. I want to thank our incredible and very knowledgeable waiter David....he really gave us outstanding service and helped to create a beautiful evening for us...we will be back again for more Anniversaries..and maybe before

Great Lunch

Having been here for dinner before, some friends and I decided to try their lunch. This was actually in the part of the restaurant called Bistro Cordonbleu and it is operated by students studying at the Cordonbleu School. Each lunch is a fixed menu, so check the website since the menu constantly changes. One gets a glass of wine and a coffee as part of the fixed price, but you can always order more beverages at an additional price. Each of the 3 courses were excellently prepared. It was all very delicious. The guys working in the kitchen will clearly have great careers as chefs when they graduate. The students waiting on the tables were very polite but they lacked polish. They could have been a wee bit more attentive, but we were basically served well. The atmosphere was very nice and we felt very relaxed. Parking was a bit of a problem and we found it odd that their parking lot was completely full.

If you want a fabulous food experience order the menu de gustation with the wine pairing. It really is an evening's entertainment. You will be expertly served several small dishes that each in its own way will delight you. With the wine pairing, you will always have a great accompaniment. Even though I have a very large appetite, I felt completely sated by the end of the meal.

When we arrived there, we were warmly welcomed. We had excellent suggestions on orders from our waited. What i loved the most about the place is the wine. Putting the right wine with the right food is their specialty. It is some how expensive but the experience is unforgettable. I would definitely go again.

When two in your party have extra courses but the resturant does not wish to see them doing nothing while the other two enjoy their course, why not bring a little something for them to nosh on. This is the kind of service that is to be expected at this 5 Diamond resturant. I cannot say enough of the service and food at this place. The standard is definately set here and all others have a long long way to come to meet this level of excellence.

The service in this restaurant is truly spectacular. The food, however, was aboslutely horrendous, not so much lacking in taste, as just completely plain and simple. The portions are not only very small, they also lack in quality. Frankly, we might as well have opened a canned product... this was a great disappointment.

The house is so beautiful and the atmosphere is perfect. Our waiter Scott was extremely attentive, polite and worked hard to speak French even though we could speak English. The food was excellent, beautiful to look at and very tasty. My sister took the 5 courses and I took the 8 courses, I really should have taken the 5 courses because even though the portions were small when you get to the end you realize that it was a lot to eat.

Very nice restaurent, we did the 8 course tasty menu with wine pairing. We do these types of meals often, in all other restaurent of this caliber you usually start with a bit of bubbly, not here. We felt directly into the meal... also usually the amuse bouche is not included as one of the dish, here it was. Food was great, wine was nicely paired.

We chose the 4 course "blind" menu which came with 2 bottles of wine for the four of us . Each course was nicely presented and the food was quite good. Service was friendly and competent. While we chose to use taxi service, there was plenty of parking available in the lot.

For more than half of the meal we were the only people in the restaurant so the atmosphere could have been a little more lively. The music was great though. Service was excellent. Specific parts of the dishes were bland (e.g. the flax seed cake that came with the duck in the degustation set meal). Great experience overall

Really good experience overall. Amazing food and great service. A few tips for excellence: ensure that the "wet towel" is wet enough; mine was too dry to wipe my hands - and warm/hot water would have been nice. Also, the butter was too cold to spread on the bread ; leaving it out an hour before serving would have been ideal.

Always a pleasure to dine at Signatures. Old style and traditional French fair but service,presentation and food is superb. Never disappoints. Too many restaurants are lacking and especially in Ottawa trending towards the casual, small plates and inattentive service. Keep up the good work but would like to have an al a carte option rather than 3,5 or 8 course menu.

Not surprisingly, French wines reign supreme at the lone Canadian outpost of the legendary Cordon Bleu culinary institute. However, you’ll also find Italian and Canadian sparkling wines, at prices ranging from modest to stratospheric. Housed in a Victorian mansion, Signatures offers inventive takes on classic French cuisine, such as sautéed escargots with celery root purée or venison loin with port wine figs. Thoughtful touches and unexpected amuse-bouches make it a popular destination for special occasions.
