    We ordered matching wines for two and a cocktail. It took three courses for the wines to catch up with the delivery of the food and I had to ask twice for the cocktail before I ended up cancelling the order. Our waiter was extremely apologetic about the delay. The food was good and overall we enjoyed the meal

    Our party of four of varying ages really enjoyed the evening at Otis Dining Hall. The mid-week tasting menu provided variety of choices. Our food was amazing (we each tried something new) 2 of us had the paired wines. Again, good choices made by somellier.. The wait staff were very friendly & professional. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent 5 courses matched with wine - food and service was outstanding - with our waiter being very knowledgeable and talking us through each course and the wines. Highly recommend.

    We had the 3 course fixed price menu. The standout dishes were the pork belly, steak, lamb and amongst the deserts the creme caramel. The wines suited the dishes well and the service was excellent. Our waitress, April, was spot on with her advice and provided attentive service. We will be returning.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Otis. The food was great and we had the matching wines which were perfect. The young man who served the wines knew everything there is to know about wine and he spent time explaining and talking to us about the wines. We thought the atmosphere, ambiance of the place needs to be looked at to make it more appealing.

    The food is excellent and the wait staff attentive but not intrusive. The chef/owner, Damien, checked to be sure our evening was going well. Highly recommend Otis...be sure to have the pepper steak!!

    The meals were incredibly disappointing. My gnocchi was bland and tasted as if it was out of a packet. My husbands pork belly was only just warm and tough. Our mains of steak was disappointing and my salmon was raw and the sauce and figs were stone cold. I was unable to eat half my main course. The desserts of creme caramel came on ice cold plates and unfortunately once again seemed as if they were from a packet, plus mine had lumps of salt which wasn’t nice. We left upset and won’t return. We’ve eaten there before and it was lovely. Not sure what happened to the quality of their food

    Some courses were really good others were basic for an establishment we felt would be quite impressive. One course was cold when served. It seems that it really depends on your selection of food as to the enjoyment you experience. The tiramisu for dessert wasn’t great - unfortunately all three of us had it expecting more.

    It was a nice experience. Nice food. We all had three courses plus some add on cheese and matching wines. Pork belly was hit and miss between us. Some parts were super tender and others stringy and fatty. Poached chicken was jelly like and a bit ordinary but filling. Soft shell crab was bland. Beef carpaccio with rice crackers stood out as a winner. Pepper steak was a stand out amazing dish with beautiful flavour, and a nice rich jus/gravy. Came with a salad and char potatoes. Lamb rump and fish of the day (salmon) were good too. Tiramisu was bland, but the cheese platter was divine. The first soft cheese was yumazing! OverAll good enough atmosphere to be able to talk and have a good time. Would go back.

    I have been wanting to try OTIS for a long time and today did not disappoint. Service was excellent - attentive but not “hovering”. Food was excellent. Every ingredient complemented each other. Wait staff were also very engaging with my 8 year old little gourmet who could not fault anything on the menu. I had ravioli, lamb and tiramisu. All were divine. Would return for just the service or just the food, but the two combined were magic. Thanks OTIS!

    Service was excellent and so welcoming. We did the 5 course tasting menu, beautiful dishes but maybe could have gone with 3 courses, so filling!

    The food here was absolutely outstanding! The plating was beautiful too - loved the oysters plated on little rocks. Atmosphere was lovely, warm and sophisticated. Service was mixed - waitstaff were lovey and friendly when they arrived, but we actually sat for half an hour before asking for a menu, because no one offered it to us! Overall, I would definitely go back though. Great night!

    Another fantastic meal at Otis. Big punches of flavour in a creative menu. Dessert choices could use some attention, but this is only a suggestion, not a criticism. Definitely in the top 5 Canberra fine diners.

    Loved that the place was relatively quiet although almost full. That's a big plus. Food was tasty as always, and staff welcoming and knowledgable. It would be great to have some decent GF and DF (ie both in one dish) dessert options. It's not hard but this is where most restaurants disappoint, when you go out for a nice night out.
