Went with a group of approximately 20 people. I was a little disappointed that we had a limited menu to choose from as I had already "scoped out" the menu prior to arriving in Ottawa. I chose the salmon and it was cooked very well....More

I am the poster of the review, wanted to add a comment regarding dishes and cutlery. Hoping the lack of cleanliness was a one off I decided to have the buffet breakfast the following morning. Took far too long for me to be seated. Decent food overall but inconsistencies and once again unclean dishware - this time a plate, absolutely disgusting to view baked on food when wanting breakfast. That found me critically viewing everything. the smoked salmon was beginning to dry out despite it being relatively early. Far too much was placed out, replenishing such dishes is more appropriate. This poorly reflects on the hotel.
