I have been to The Wellington Diner several times for breakfast on the weekend, and I continue to be impressed with the courteous and prompt service. The food never disappoints, and service is always with a smile! Great diner to enjoy a tasty breakfast any time of day!

Looked up on sites and found a nearby restaurant for brunch. The website seemed to suit our needs but upon reaching it was closed for renovation. Went up to this Diner for brunch. Seemed quite busy, and we were seated in about 10 minutes. Lots of Uber Eats drivers picking up food. Between the four of us we ordered a... More

First of all let me thank you for posting such great photos of our food before addressing some of the mistakes you made commenting on our food.

Hubby has a restricted diet so we like to check that there is something suitable for him..it looked OK so we went in...very friendly welcome. We had to wait five... More

Beware all "last dayers" out there. Management claims the date on Groupon is when the date turns at 00:01. Contacted Groupon. The date shown is for the full business day. This is the only restaurant in Ottawa that ever refused to honour the Groupon. Same thing happened to the couple seated behind us. Food and service was good though.

Your had an expired Groupon. It expired the day you came in. You needed to come in the day before. I have a relationship with Groupon and one that is 100% perfect. I contacted Groupon and they have no issue explaining this to you. My rep is Brandon and he can be reached at 1-773-696-2374 Please be aware that this... More

I've eaten at many diners in several cities, and the food here was easily the best of them. They have those exceptionally crisp and delightfully irregular fries that crumble into silky, decadent flavour and some nice fresh vegetables to offset the richness. The place was packed, but somehow the service didn't miss a beat. The prices were refreshingly fair and... More

Creative fresh and tasty. Eggs Benny. Try the Mish Mash. Or the Dude Burger if you're really hungry. Getting hungry just thinking about the place.

Who would expect to find lobster at a diner? Maybe not a whole lobster, but there it was, at the Wellington diner. We tried two versions: one was good, the other was excellent. The good one was the lobster macaroni and cheese. Nice and hot, but could have been a bit creamier. The masterpiece was the macaroni poutine: sweet potato... More
