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.

My friend and I went for lunch at the Signature Cordon Bleu Ottawa. We were, both, very impressed with the site, the service and the excellent food. We will definitely be back. Having lunch here was a great way to check out the place. I think dinner here would be amazing too! This may sound strange but we were very impressed with the attention to details at this restaurant...the little ottoman for our purses was unexpected and appreciated!

We held our 50th Anniversary event at Signatures. Signatures excelled in absolutely all respects -- in providing a beautiful setting, impeccable service, and a truly memorable meal. The front staff were incredible with all our guests and they treated my 95 year-old mother-in-law like a queen. A grand thank you to the chef and his staff; our guests are still sending us their compliments. Signatures was outstanding in helping us plan our event, and we all had a truly wonderful dining experience that was quite simply flawless.

We especially appreciated the unexpected special touches (ie small appetizers). As per usual, the quality and presentation of the food was excellent and the server was both knowledgeable and attentive. Perhaps the chef could have prepared the mains with a little less sauce and added a few more vegetables (ie a slightly healthier meal) but we enjoyed everything.

We had a wonderful experience at Signatures. This was our first time. Our 14 year old daughter wanted to experience a "nice restaurant" for her birthday. The staff was very friendly and the food was wonderful. She especially enjoyed the food presentation and explanations when each dish was presented. We will definitely be back for our next special occasion.

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.
