This past weekend we were back in Ottawa for a couple of wedding’s we had so we decided to get together with our friends for supper. I wanted to try something new and the Albion Rooms have been on the list for a while.
I made a reservation while we were on our roadtrip and though I try to avoid detailing negative experiences on here I have to share one tidbit, but only because there was a positive outcome. They lost our reservation. When we landed on Friday night at 6:30 I hadn’t heard from them to confirm, and it made me nervous since we were taking 8 of our friends on a Friday night. So I called and they didn’t have it, but assured us they would make something work. When we arrived they sat us in the lounge until they could get us a table, and I was pleasantly surprised when we got seated before our drinks even arrived. The customer service was wonderful and they really handled the slip well.
We all absolutely loved the atmosphere and the selection. Our waiter was THE BEST! I think his name was Mike (excuse me if it wasn’t) and he was a total doll. We nibbled on different items before finally ordering a main. I think we spent about 3 hours just chatting and catching up. I strongly suggest this for drinks, or dinner for a group.
