Mediocre at best
Went to this place after some people suggested it. Food was bland and cold, service was spotty. Once was enough.

Benitz Bistro is my number one restaurant when I visit Ottawa. The food is always amazing and I am always satisfied with the service. The wine list and the drinks are constantly impressing me.

Dear Dr Know,
I hope you continue enjoying this restaurant whenever you come to town. It will leave an open table at the better restaurants.
Buon appetito!

Disappointing experience
A group of five of us went to enjoy the Taste of Winterlude menu. It's a small restaurant, so the only place to seat five of us was a table near the bathroom - not great, but acceptable. The appetizer was pretty good, but the main courses were not. Three of us ordered steak - it was so tough and stringy it had to be sent back. They replaced it with the ribs, which were good but greasy, and the accompanying gnochi was cold and doughy. Another of us ordered the risotto - once again this was only mediocre with it being too wet and yet not at all tender. I did enjoy my dessert though. The service was good , attentive and apologetic. It obviously was not his fault the food was not edible. However they made not efforts to compensate us for the lousy meal outside of not charging us for the coffee. Anyway, overall, terribly disappointed, particularly for the price.
