Special night out

Looking for a special dinner or night out then this is a good option. It is more on the expensive side but worth it Rustic classy environment with great service. Food menu changes and is delicious and well presented. Take a stroll in the market before or after

Great ambiance & decor. My wife & I both had the rib eye steak and it was memorable, one of the best meals we've ever had. To top it off, my wife accidently got a shirt cuff in a bit of juice on her plate and one of the servers. Nick, came over with a glass of water and napkin... More

I dined at Eighteen this last weekend with my fiancé, and I can say that both the food and the service was among the best I've ever had, anywhere (Paris, Rome, Toronto, New York, etc.). Kimberley and her staff there were extremely welcoming and attentive, to the point it made us feel like we were the only ones in the... More

When visiting Ottawa for the Chamber Music Fest we happened upon Eighteen. We had a very pleasant meal here. Our waiter, Mark, was polite and attentive without giving us the feeling he was woatching over us. I asked for my steak to be rare to medium rare and the waiter suggested medium rare, which was a bit too done for... More

Went here for my birthday. Top notch experience. Not too formal of a restaurant, has a lounge feel. Very romantic. Food is incredible... order anything on the menu and you'll probably love it.

A gracious welcome, food that's incredible would seem enough to give Eighteen a 5 star rating but they truly go beyond that. First, their black cod is amazing and the wait staff are willing to give their opinions of various menu items as well. The atmosphere is lovely with a great bar. Just after paying for our meal, the sky... More

The food here is exceptional. Our order was accurate and cooked to perfection. The steaks could be cut with a butterknife. The service is very attentive! This is must visit in Ottawa!
