Attentionto the customer wins in this restaurant!

We have been to Beckta twice and been very pleased both times. The food is very good but it is really the service that stands out.

I took a friend here for dinner as a thank you! We ate in the more casual wine bar area. We started with drinks, which were quite good. We shared a few dishes, the highlight being the risotto. We were a bit disappointed with the cheese tray, it was not what we ordered, then our server brought out additional cheese... More

Four of us enjoyed the 5 course Taster Menu with wines. food was beautifully presented, unique and interesting. Combined with unusual wines and outstanding service it made for a great evening with lots to talk about. In a restaurant what more can you really ask for? Not much, but for me the décor doesn't work. The proportions of this fine... More

We returned to Beckta Dining for 2 2nd visit with friends for a total party of four, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the wine, the service and the company. The three course meal is, to our mind, the way to go at this restaurant. The 1st course for two of us was oysters from the east coast. The oysters... More

I was so looking forward to dining at one of Ottawa's best restaurants. I was quite happy with my experience as far as decor and service went, but not so with my meal. While my steak was done to perfection, the sides were served almost cold. The waiter's reaction was to advise the Chef. Nothing more. Not what I expect... More

Beckta's new dining room and facility is gorgeous and conveniently located in downtown Ottawa.The newly added wine bar is a great place for casual drink and a good bite to eat. The two dining rooms have the same great tasting menus as always in lovely, comfortable rooms in a beautifully restored historic home. Kudos.

We visited the new location and were very impressed. A very nice ambiance, service was impeccable. The food creative and very good. Smallish portions. We had the five course with the wine pairing. The only downside was the first wine pairing. It was a sparkling wine but it was flat and likely was a bottle left over from lunch or... More

We had a lovely 3 course meal here that was amazing. The restaurant decor is like someone's unique home with minimalist feel and interesting art. The service is relaxed and fun, which seems to translate to all of the diners; I think I talked to everyone in the room I was in - which is unusual, right? . Oysters amazing,... More

Wow, I am very fond of fine dining, and this establishment wowed me. From the relaxed and polished service to the delights discovered in every dish we enjoyed. Excellent! The ambiance is as one would expect of a progressive Eastern Canadian restaurant: stylish contemporary decor in a restored edifice.
