Phenomenal cuisine. Truely sensational.

The atmosphere is quite nice and the service was far above par. Now the food...In ordered the filet mignon and it was very good. It could have used a sauce, possibly peppercorn or blue cheese but never the less it was great. As an appetizer I tried the croquettes which were very nice. Mild but... read more

Have had many meals at this delightful restaurant. Food is varied and delicious. Tenderloin a fave that's always perfect. Wine selection excellent. Owners and staff knowledgeable and friendly. They welcome feedback when you're there. If something is less than perfect, they want to fix it immediately. Not usually an issue, but nice to know their customers are important to them.

We've been to the charming Main Street Cellar a few times and each time has been outstanding. Staff are welcoming, attentive, courteous, friendly & knowledgeable. Our meals, we both had tenderloin, were cooked to perfection and portions were plentiful. The atmosphere is cozy, quaint and very romantic. Definitely our favourite restaurant.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and have always liked the food and why we have returned. Last weekend we were not impressed with the new menu. The prices were high and for what you paid you would expect more food on your plate. It was very disappointing. Not worth the visit in my opinion.

My husband and I have been to the Main Street Cellar at least 4 times in the past two years, once with our daughter, who is vegan, and twice with another couple. My recollection was that all of these meals were delicious, which is, of course, why we returned. It's also worth mentioning that the staff/owners are always very gracious... More

We enjoyed a great seven course dinner - including a fantastic lobster bisque, an excellent gnocchi with shallots, roasted butternut squash, lamb rillette/pistachio crusted chop , venison with a fig and apple relish, beef roulade with spinach/gorgonzola and poached pear/chocolate madagascar vanilla. The wines and ports were delicious with a good variety of Canadian, Australian, French and Californian wines. Perfect... More

I LOVE this restaurant. For many many reasons. First, it is in a very cozy little town not far from downtown Ottawa and well worth the short drive. It is in a heritage building, the former home of a famed Doctor in Manotick so it is lovely, warm and wonderful ambiance. The owners, Kim Burns and Paul Paton are exceptional.... More
