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 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.

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.

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.

A fantastic meal with great service and wine selection. Our waiter (Louis) was very knowledgeable and friendly. All appetizers, entrees and desserts were spectacular in appearance and taste. The bonus was a tour of the house and cooking school, including kitchen classrooms, main kitchen and the various dining areas and lounges. An excellent hidden gem in Ottawa - the only Cordon Bleu school in Canada.

It was our first time at Signatures. The building is very nice. The food was great, except that the sauce seemed to be the same between the duck and deer. The servie was extremely slow. We were at the table for four hours without, and did not even take a cocktail at the start or coffee at the end. In between the appetizer and main course, we waited an hour and a half, which is way too long.

Our second visit to Signatures and again an exquisite experience. Helen, our server, was most accommodating and welcoming. I am lactose intolerant and couldn't have the prix fixe ice cream dessert. The fruit plate I was served was extraordinary. Thank the preparers. We'll be back and recommend the restaurant to any and all.

We always love getting together at Signatures. It provides the ideal venue to catch up with friends over a lingering lunch. One can have a conversation without shouting, enjoy delectable food, beautifully presented, in a gracious setting with attentive, not intrusive, service. Crisp white tablecloths and napkins are the icing on the cake. All the above constitute a rare commodity in Ottawa these days.

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.
