A after work favourite for anyone downtown, Spin has a great $6 wine and appys between 5-6PM weekdays. Having been there on various occasions with colleagues, the prices are reasonable and the space can accommodate large groups without reservations. In the summer, the outdoor patio is nice. Favs include their selection of local Ontario wines and their mini fish and... More

This review is for the most recent time I was there but the previous time, a few months earlier, was about the same. Food is delicious. For some reason very little of it grabs my interest on the menu but everything I've ordered is amazing. Really liked the salad I got one time. Not sure what was in/on it but... More

Good corned beef hash is hard to find, but Spin does it up nicely. I make the trip downtown for brunch every couple of months to enjoy a brunch. The atmosphere is good, the service generally good, the Corned beef, really good, the bennies aren't bad either.

We met on the bar side of Spin rather than the restaurant side. There's a great loungey/cocktail bar vibe here with the decor and chill lounge music. There were tv screens, not too obtrusive, showing a darts tourney on one but mostly news on the others (CBC News for one). The Spin 6 is a smaller menu offering that runs... More

There might be some things on the menu that are very good judging from other reviews, but I really did not like what we ordered - the pizzas were bland and not real pizzas - more like a naan with too much cheese. We ordered the vegetarian and the chicken - both were not great. The burger was just ok.... More

Recently travelled to Ottawa and stayed at the Marriot on Kent St. Stayed away from the hotel restaurant, as I usually find them over-priced and mediocre. On my last night I decided to give it a try. What a nice surprise to find that "Spin" was the exception to that rule. Our food was very good and reasonably priced; our... More

The breakfast buffet is the same price as a traditional breakfast in this restaurant except with the buffet, you get beverages. Service was good and friendly, it is just too expensive ($18.99) for a $6 breakfast.

This restaurant is in the Ottawa Marriott Hotel; the staff are good, friendly and helpful, but the food is over priced, not good, and luke warm at best. Would not eat here on my own dime. Also, this is not a family restaurant, this is more for business folks.
