If you like fresh and creative twists to culinary delights, this is the spot. The ambiance is very unassuming. The food was great. It is worth noting that the menu perpetually changes so what we ate may very well not be available. When I asked why that was, I was informed that the chef like to buy as fresh as... More

This is one of my Ottawa favourites. I have been there a few times, and the meal is always great. The service is great and the environment is casual but classy. The only negative is that lunch is a bit pricey for smaller servings.

First off...if you have any mobility issues, the entrance and staircase to this restaurant will challenge you. Having overcome my initial 'shock' we were warmly greeted at the top of the stairs and guided to a lovely booth. Second word of warning...noise travels and there was a gaggle of star-y-eyed bridesmaids and a bride giggling their way through lunch. Our... More

Went here with a few friends. The service was AMAZING. The staff worked as a team the entire evening, this is what a dining experience should be. Great selection of beer and wine. Small Menu changes daily. Food was great. Parking along side streets.

My fascination with the Wellington Street Gastropub is that, as a regular visitor to Ottawa from London, England, I am able to compare it with the original granddaddy gastropub of all, the veritable progenitor of the gastropub concept, 'The Eagle' in Farringdon which just happens to be a short walk from the barristers' chambers I belong to just outside Grays'...

I'd like to rate it 3.5 stars just because they bring in so many micro brews and change it up. I'd go back just to sit at the small bar to try something different. But at the end of the day it's a restaurant right and so while I'd be seated at that bar to try a new beer I... More

Went with friends and we had a great time. Great food in a casual environment. I had the beef striploin that was cooked perfectly and the rest of the crowd complemented their food choices as well. Highly recommendable

This was my second time eating here and once again, had a wonderful meal - the menu is not long but the dishes are interestingly complex. We were able to enjoy ourselves and didn't feel rushed at all. Good wine choices, good microbrews, helpful staff, nice environment. A great find if you're in Ottawa and looking for a relaxed place...

The Wellington is a nice place for well-cooked food that is higher quality, variety, and price than a standard pub. The only negative here was that my party was served another round of beers, then told we had 5 minutes to leave because someone else had our table reserved at 9. For your purposes, if you are meeting friends you... More

This is a very good restaurant and was just what we wanted: interesting and tasty food choices, quite reasonable prices, fun atmosphere, good service, good coffee with generous refills, no feeling of being rushed, and very much the feeling at the end that we would go back. This is a great choice for a fast (given the good service) or... More
