I very much enjoyed lunch at Beckta. The building has a charming renovation, and delightful staff. My lunch of grilled trout was very tasty, and nicely accompanied by an Austrian wine suggested by our waiter. If you are a small group, ask for the private room at the top of the stairs. It has beautiful wall art by Andrew King... More

Let me start by saying that I am somewhat biased where Beckta is concerned having eaten at all his 0ttawa locations a number of times with no complaints. The location at the Grant House is elegant and genteel and as one would expect the service is first rate matching the high quality of he food. Mr Beckta continues to maintain... More

I went to Beckta Dining & Wine for my birthday dinner this year. I'm a fan of his restaurants and often patronize Play. My experience at Beckta was a delight, from start to finish. The food was among the best I've ever tasted - my party and I opted for the three-course dinner option and were not disappointed by a... More

I went there for a wedding lunch with family and friends. The overall experience was more than positive. The venue is stunning; a perfect mix of chic and cozy (we had one of the beautiful private rooms upstairs). Food was creative and delicious (more French-inspired than American I would say) and the wine list impressive. I am saying this having... More

We celebrated my birthday at Beckta Dining and Wine last Saturday, April 11. First, I am a foodie and getting harder to please, so be aware. We had the five course dinner with wine pairing. The restaurant: - Very nice layout, décor and the chairs are very comfortable - The location is perfect, 150 Elgin is in the centre of... More

We first went to Beckta at their original location and have since been twice to the new location on Elgin Street and we continue to have wonderful meals and great service.

We took my husband here, with a party of five, to celebrate his birthday. The menu items are all wonderfully tasty, creative, and well-portioned. Service is just the right combination of professional and friendly. It was our first time at your new location - we look forward to returning!

Beautiful setting for a special celebration dinner – it is like a secret oasis on Elgin Street. The food is an experience - layers of flavour and presented on the plate like a piece of art. The staff are very knowledgeable about the wines and suitable pairings. The meal was paced exquisitely and was a welcome reward after a very... More
