    There are other restaurants in the area that serve much better quality food. The 2 scallops served to me were rather salty on the top and bland in the bottom, and one scallop was saltier than the other. Similarly, pepper topping on the steak was overpowering, the sides provided didn't blend in with the steak. Fried curds in raviolo were not even crispy, at all. Dessert was sweet, too sweet in fact, both the source and mascarpone were very sweet. Overall the food lost the balance of flavors. I didn't expect this considering it was the chef's menu of 135 pp.

    We were very impressed with the main wait staff for our table. Engaging, friendly and knowledgeable about not only the food but the wine selection. We chose from the three course menu and the food was excellent. All in all a great night. Certainly worth going back

    Some of the flavours were lovely, others left me wanting. Steak was beautifully cooked, brioche a little stale and chewy. Loved the support of local wineries. But it was so loud it was hard to talk to the person across the table and got a bit exhausting and unpleasant towards the end of the night.

    A very homely place. We went there to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly, professional, and thoroughly explained each dish. The venue is very warm and welcoming. The chef’s skills are amazing. Food was excellent.

    First time dining at Otis and it won’t be the last. Great food, atmosphere and staff. Menu was fabulous and while feeling a little pressure to finish for the next sitting (thanks Covid) it wasn’t overbearing like others I’ve experienced. Chef’s discussion and explanation of the dishes was informative and fun.

    There's no place better than Canberra in Truffle season and OTIS Dining Hall for its truffle degustation menu matched with non-other than Clonakilla wines! While all of the entrees were great, for me the star of the show was the hand rolled Gnocchi with truffled butter chicken sauce and of course, topped with black truffle! The pepper steak was melt in the mouth and each of the 3 deserts were laced with black truffle. Great night and fitting end to the truffle season! Thanks.

    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!
