What a treat!

My taste buds were dazzled with every dish at Beckta. We had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. We chose Foie gras, smelt, sweetbreads, chevre and mocha and were delighted with each dish.

We had a great experience at Beckta for my birthday. The renovated home is decorated lovely. The glasses and cutlery were absolutely spotless - have not been to a restaurant in quite awhile where this is the case. We started with duck tartare and perch appetizers which were well presented and tasteful. For the main course we had clams and... More

The new Beckta restaurant is a block away from the Lord Elgin hotel where we stayed. The old house it is in is quite lovely but we were put on the second floor in a small room and had no view. I would have preferred to be on the first floor. There is no al carte menu so one is... More

Beckta's continues to be one of, if not, Ottawa's finest dining experiences. From the stunning decor, to a thoughtful menu, on to the excellent and knowledgable service and of course the delicious food. While some may find it a bit pricey, you certainly are getting what you pay for. Kudos to Stephen and his staff!

Was delighted with the food at Beckta - the smoked duck breast appetizer, the Cornish game hen with blue grits, kumquats and pepper meringue for the main course and the sea buckthorn berry tart for dessert - all were uniquely, delicately flavored and presented beautifully. Thought the old house was a bit drab but the food more than made up... More

The newly opened Beckta's Restaurant has maintained the high standard of food and service that one expected from their former establishment. Expect to be wowed by the new decor, in particular, the cozy wine bar in the back of the building. Menus are interesting and varied - enjoy!

I was skeptical about returning to Bekta for Valentines Day dinner as my last experience three years ago wasn't to my satisfaction. The experience we had on Saturday evening was excellent from start to finish. We recommend the Arctic Char, Sable fish and Strip Loin courses. The staff were attentive and the quality and presentation of the dishes were all... More

My wife and I went during the week for her birthday. Beckta knows the winning combination, solid food, great wine discovery, and very thoughtful service. The food there is something for everyone. The flavors are subtle where they need too and bold in other areas. The overall blend is very solid plates exploring the full ingredients flavors throughout. The wine,... More

The new location is in a beautifully renovated home, with a few rooms and several tables for two near windows or quiet areas. Tables are well spaced out so if you are looking to celebrate a special occasion, the atmosphere here checks all the right boxes. I also checked out the wine bar area which seemed like nice place for... More

We haven't been to the new Elgin Street location but are looking very forward to it in the next few weeks. Our dinner was at the old location on Nepean. Can't remember the menu name but we splurged and had the Chef's menu which is a five course menu chosen for you along with the wine pairing. The salad course... More
