......... BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER. We tried them all. Food superb and very creative. Friendly and efficient service. Plates and food HOT when served. We have "discovered" this wonderful Restaurant a few months ago and my husband and I have made it one of our favorite places. A real gem!

The menu was almost like War & Peace and there was something everyone would enjoy! They had your regular food items with a delicious twist; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Wi-fi was available but who would want to be on the internet with all that good food to try. With a fully stalked bar, you're good to go any time and... More

I wrote a review of the Wellington Diner in 2011. Since the discovery, my boyfriend and I have been frequenting the diner at least twice a month for dinner and once a month for Sunday breakfast. Since my last review, they have changed their menu. I love their Supreme Macaroni and cheese and the Wellington Poutine. My boyfriend likes their... More

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Ottawa. The presentation of the food alone deserves an award along with the excellent service and quality of food served. It is very affordable and they make excellent coffee. The ambiance is great, very comfortable not too noisy, worth every penny.

When we went it was pretty quiet, so we were served promptly. Service otherwise was friendly and quick. I had a mushroom gravy covered schnitzel, which was really tasty. Price was reasonable, and it was a good experience all around. Will definitely come back here in the future.

I quite enjoyed the entire experience. My friend suggested this diner because we were looking for somewhere that was disabled-accessible in the Westboro area which is hard to find among the old buildings with steps... lots of steps! The space was clean, well-lit & the staff very warm & welcoming. The portions were huge & the food was amazing. The... More

I've hit this place a few times in my travels to Ottawa. And if it's not too busy, this place is great. Good food (love the Benny's) and tasty milkshakes. But if this place is busy... avoid it like the plague. While the food is still solid, the service is a disaster. Slow to get in, poor communication, and in... More

The home-fries are divine, they made me a wicked Long Island Iced Tea from scratch and wow, was it good. Prices were fantastic too!

My wife and I went to the Wellington Diner for lunch on one of our "kid-free" dates. We were just looking for a quick bite to eat but were pleasantly surprised by their unique take on standard diner fare. First off, they serve Beau's beer which is one of my favorites. I tried the Wellington poutine which had sirloin beef... More

I have come here for breakfast after night shifts with girls from work and have not been disappointed! The breakfast special is very reasonably priced, good food and huge portions, the coffee is fresh and the service is quick, attentive and friendly. Only bad thing I could say is that it is a bit drafty at times, but that's first... More
