This place is certainly aimed at beer and wine fans, but that is no reason to make things difficult and less comfortable for those who prefer spirits. While there was an encyclopedic wine and beer list, spirit drinkers in the group were out of luck and left playing "spot the upsale" with the friendly but slightly too prescriptive wait staff....

Food was good! Lots of interesting choices. Extensive beer menu. Ask to share the main course and they brought it out on two plates! We liked the atmosphere as it was warm and relaxing. Service was excellent. Will come back!

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

Went here for my birthday party with a party of 8. It was awesome - great atmosphere, fantastic food and lovely wines. Would suggest looking at the menu the day of to make sure there is something that you would like as the menu changes daily.

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
