We are regular diners at this, our local restaurant. We are always surprised when we talk to fellow diners and find out how far they've traveled to our little corner of Ottawa. The food is always well prepared, properly seasoned and served quickly and with a smile. The menu is quite extensive, offering traditional Canadian staples, comfort foods, lots of... More

We live in Ottawa and have been going to the Red Dot for years. It is reasonably priced and you can get prime rib for a lot less than going to the Keg. Their desserts are fabulous - make sure you save some room. Last time we went we decided to get pasta (usually we only order pasta at Italian... More

We have been going to this place for years. You need a car to get there if you are in Ottawa, but a nice scenic drive to Osgoode. The food is very good (we really like the prime rib), prices are reasonable, and the staff is friendly. Leave room for dessert - especially the sticky toffee pudding (the main reason... More

yummy, yummy, yummy. I hate the calamari salad after oogling another patrons dish as it was brought past me. The place was busy but the wait staff were very nice and friendly. Daughter had nachos and really enjoyed her meal as well. I would definitely go back next time in the area.

This unassuming, homey cafe is not only the only restaurant in Osgoode but is (given it's lock-hold on the location) a GOOD place to eat. My wife and I dine there once a week (Wednesday nights to be precise) and are never disappointed. The smokey BBQ ribs are top rate- far leaner and meatier then any we've been able to... More

We went for dinner after our sons hockey game - very pleasant atmosphere; we ordered pizza, chicken burger, beef burger and quesadilla - all were excellent. The homemade soup (butternut squash) was also very good. We will definitely be back :)

I use to go almost every Friday. Sometimes just get takeout. Last time I ordered hot beef sandwich and it was cold and tasted like stale bread. Thought I would give them the benefit of a doubt and order out again. This time my quasedilla had the wrong ingredient and in TWO HAIRS! It's quite a shame as I use... More

My friend and I enjoyed breakfast here on August 25. We both had eggs benedict. As usual, they were served hot and the eggs were done to our specification. The atmosphere and service have been consistently friendly.

Decided to give this place a second try. We've been there for dinner before and got bad service. Food was ok and pricey but desert wa really good. Went for lunch this time and service was better. But food was horrible. The basil tomato soup was just salt added to the mix. The fried chicken was bland inside. Basically we... More
