The restaurant was divine. The food was delicately chosen from across the Mediterranean and really showed the Lebanese cuisine properly throughout each meal. The house cocktails were really good and showcased the various essences of the region. The ambiance was lovely and the decor really takes you to a beautiful scene in one of Beirut’s heritage buildings. The staff were friendly and a big shoutout goes to Alexandre for being so kind and so welcoming. He truly made our experience lovely. I would definitely come back again. Thank you for that special night.
Je recommande vivement ce restaurant au marché by.
Les plats sont délicieux, l'accueil est chaleureux et l'ambiance est cosy.
Quoique j'aurai aimé que des chansons de fayrouz y soit diffusé vu qu'il porte son nom!
Mais en général, très belle expérience à refaire sans hésitation!!
We had a great time! Love the ambience! Service was fantastic!
The new location in the Byward market is wonderful. Food was very flavourful and arrived at our table in a timely manner. Portions are generous, so there were take homes that night! In my too 10 restaurants in Ottawa. Thanks! Gordon
Good cocktails, cozy ambience, delicious food and friendly but responsible service. Great experience!
Great service and great food. Very helpful bartender (Alex).
Great food, service, drinks & atmosphere- Fairouz is always a fantastic experience. Their new location is really lovely.
They're doing a great job implementing all COVID-related guidelines. We felt safe & comfortable.
Delicious food across the board, with a lot of wonderful vegetable/vegetarian dishes to choose from if you are not a meat eater. Nice ambience and good service too.
I am glad that I picked Fairouz Cafe to celebrate my wife's birthday.
Professional and kind staff, delicious food, amazing drinks, excellent ambience, ... What more could anybody ask for?
It was above our expectations.
Thank you Fairouz Cafe!
It was a great experience overall! Would definitely recommend it.
The food is absolutely delicious. It is a nice change to other restaurants as their menu is unique.
Amazing experience. Alex the bartender/ server was fantastic, excellent cocktails and very knowledgeable. Food was top notch.
We had dinner on a Sunday evening. They followed all public health regulations and we felt very safe dining here. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional, checking on ingredients and providing suggestions.
We had a very memorable night a the new Fairouz Cafe location for a birthday. They know how to make an occasion special in a perfectly subtle way. It is the same delicious food and beautiful ambiance as the Somerset location. The barman will gladly help you choose which drink from the unique menu to sip on. They are also very COVID wise. I would definitely recommend!
An Ottawa Favourite! Excellent food, service and sty.
The only complaint was the food took long to come out. Good food, good ambiance our server was excellent.
Phenomenal food & service! Everyone needs to try the new cocktails!!
This place transformed from an unique middle Eastern restaurant with amazing offerings to basically a restaurant like any other in the city with limited menu items and food that lacks flavor! I was very disappointed. The meat was cold, their "covid-19 menu" is very limited.
The vegeterian food was a little blang (artichocke app and the cauliflower)
Always dependable and delicious food with unique cocktails.
Food was tasty but small portions, service was outstanding with Alexander. We was so considerate and fun. We were four girls enjoying a special birthday and he made us feel so welcome even though we were being loud and enjoying ourselves so much, maybe too much! We had a blast with the service of the whole restaurant. Everyone was so sweet and they made the birthday girl feel special, with a card and a special cake! Thank you Fairouz!
Delicious food good service and large variety of wine.
Loved it. The food was excellent and the service was amazing and imaginative. We shared the 4 person sharing plate and loved it - lots of food for a very reasonable price. And the bartender made up a cold night tea cocktail for us that was perfect.
Felt very safe. Good distancing between tables. Staff are excellent. Food was plentiful and delicious.
Canadian cities are full of restaurants offering some generic menu of supposedly 'Arab' dishes that everyone seems to stick to - the same mezze items, a mandatory shish tawouk, lamb and beef dish. I was expecting Fairouz to be different from all the reviews I read. I was underwhelmed by the menu and its execution. The spin on muhammara was alright maintaining the flavors while colonizing it with cashews. It was more like eating chopped cashews dressed with some dibs-rumman (pomegranate molasses). I was excited about eating the classic fried cauliflower as I was super homesick but this turned out to bland. The cauliflower was not browned enough and the tarator (tahini sauce) was missing desired tanginess. My beef was chewy and near cold, sitting on a bed of cold ezme. It came with saj that was dry and cold. Saj should be warm and soft. I couldn't eat it. The lamb sandwich was the only dish that was satisfying but again it came with kale tabouleh that was orphaned in terms of flavor.
Service was painfully slow from the time it took to be seated and to order.
Maybe this food works for people unfamiliar with the cuisine but as someone from the Arab world where restaurants display tremendous sophistication in revisiting traditional dishes, this restaurant completely missed the mark.
This meal was fabulous. Every dish we ordered was delicious. Really nice melding of flavours. Great service.
They removed several tables to allow for social distancing. Upside - we felt comfortable/safe. Downside - you lose some ambiance/vibe, but que sera sera. It’s the time we are in.
Great outdoor space. Delish food. Awesome wine selection. Friendly and knowledgeable staff provide laid back place to enjoy a meal with friends.
The kale taboulé was too acidic for my liking, and the pulled lamb sandwich had a spicy sauce on the bread that I didn’t care for. I did not think it went well with the lamb.
For the fried cauliflower I’ve had better.
Expérience culinaire très intéressante, les parfums de cette cuisine! Un délice! À un prix très raisonnable, dans une magnifique maison. Service attentif, impeccable tout en étant tout à fait convivial ! Bref a recommander ++++
Truly a jewel in Ottawa. No other place can compete with the flavors you'll experience here. Its a homerun every time and the service is awesome. Do yourself a favor and overindulge, experience as much as you can, its worth it!
Excellent service and tasty food. We went to celebrate our anniversary, and were pleased with the service, the hand written note, and the treat at the end.
Extremely great service. Felt so comfortable. Great Ambiance.
Falafel fries and chicken main were delicious. Hubby found his pulled lamb sandwich a bit sweet. Service was good, not as jovial as you would expect pre-pandemic, but this is our new normal! Tables were appropriately spaced, we were never near other diners. Everyone wore masks coming in and out. Bathroom was clean. Fouf cake was amazing. It's a must try!
Une très belle soirée en amoureux sur la terrasse du restaurent. La viande est savoureuse!!! Un très bon repas.
Great place, good food, excellent service.
Our only disappointment was that our bill came to $250, and were charged $1.50 for each of the 3 additional pieces of pita we ordered for our dips. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a restaurant before that charged for bread when you spend $30 on dips.
Delicious food, generous portions, and a wonderful patio! We will definitely be recommending Fairouz to our friends and family!
Excellent food, warm and helpful staff, and a lovely setting on the front porch. Can’t wait to return, very soon!
Food was delicious and the service at this restaurant was great. Portions are moderate size and you leave feeling satisfied after having a quality meal. Definitely recommend!
We had an incredible birthday celebration at Fairouz! Outstanding service from our server and absolutely delicious food! We had an issue with our family coming from out of town who were going to be late, while the head hostess did sound a bit stressed on the phone she was able to make it work and we are very grateful for that! Very impressive menu especially in light of Covid-19 restrictions. I would say it was fairly expensive but the level of service makes it worth while.
Very ordinary... over rated i think. Small menu and expensive for no reason.
