Finally a restaurant that lists not only its wines and beers, but its spirits also. It's not that hard to do - and it is worth doing. The selection for all 3 was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. Steak was delicious -- while the food menu was limited, there were some good choices. They may want to consider allowing... More

Enjoyed the wine flights. Nice way to really find the type of wine you like by doing a comparison. We also had a couple of appetizers which very good. Service was good and server was helpful with the wine tasting. Place was crowded but not noisy. The food menu is a pricey but then the restaurant is located in a... More

Waiter pushed me( and I know I should not have let him)into a "promotional" wine, different from the glass I had chosen...wine tasted like grape juice. Was pushing for me to order an appetizer, despite my telling him it would be too much food... felt... More

This is by far our best new meal & drink discovery in the Ottawa area! The $14 fries with a steak is absolutely delicious and the beer & wine selection is to die for! If you're a beer lover, I strongly recommend you try the flight of beers for $14, you're sure to find something you love! They also have... More

I went there a couple of times. If you want to enjoy wine and cheese, you have to arrive early (around 4PM). However, there is an excellent choice of wine.

We went there for the music. We were not disappointed. The food was good though. They have an amazing wine + beer selection. If you eat there, try the Jambalaya (one of the best I had since leaving New Orleans).

After a long day walking around Ottawa we decided we would look for somewhere to eat. We came across the window display of the Vineyard which was filled with their menus. We had basically decided on what we wanted before we even went in. We were a little surprised the restaurant was downstairs but we found there was a very... More
