If you’re a meat lover this is where you want to be. If you love Filet Mignon there is no finer place for many, many miles. I mean yes, there are some high end steak houses in Ottawa, Montreal, or Toronto, but why travel all the way to those cities when Eastern Ontario has Eight Zero Zero? Many people actually travel from some of those cities to dine at Eight Zero Zero.
Chef Ahmad Mansori and his staff understand the delicacy of a good piece of meat. It’s important; especially in a fine dining room for expectations to be met. Excuses are not part of a dining experience and that’s why Eight Zero Zero is so renowned.
I always like to bring a bit of a posse when I do reviews so that we can sample many of the dishes.
Chef Ahmad is a Saucier. A Saucier is a mystical artistic form refined in France. The sauces at Eight Zero Zero are simply what puts them in another class of dining experience. Our appetizer of Mussels were simply amazing. You could taste the freshness and it wasn’t drowned out, but enhanced by the world wide spices and herbs that Chef Ahmad uses like a Wizard waving his wand.
I had the Lamb because my guests were having Filet and Steak and I love lamb especially when prepared well as Chef Ahmad did! We also had a plate of grilled veggies and portobello mushrooms which really were just a perfect compliment to our meal. My lamb was with pistachio nut flavorings.
The filet was cooked magnificently too. Pictures can’t do the flavour any justice. You simply have to dine at Eight Zero Zero to appreciate the food, the service, and the amazing wine list they had. We shared a few bottles of a Masi wine; near the bottom of their price list, but still an amazing wine to match up with our entrees.
Eight Zero Zero does a fine job with its layout. While not a huge space, it’s laid out so that you can have a quiet meal without having noise from other tables invade your evening.
With all the staff and office parties as well as people just needing a bit of luxury during the crazy Christmas season it’s always best to make Reservations for Eight Zero Zero.
The service was superb as well.
Our server, Bella, had a strong understanding her menu and was supportive without being invasive.
