The restaurant located on York Street just hundred meters from the By Ward Market has been newly renovated and offers spacious and cozy atmosphere. The food and service are excellent but you pay for it. I recommend it on a special occasion.

Had a prix fixe menu here as part of a big celebration dinner, and it was still outstanding. Some of the best lamb I've ever had. Good wine selection too.

I've been to Eighteen several times over the last year, and I'm never disappointed! My husband setup a surprise Birthday dinner for myself and 15 other friends. The service was impeccable and the waitress was very accommodating for such a large group. Their steak is hands-down the best! It is melt-in-your mouth good, and the potatoes are divine! We really...

Eighteen was selected as the venue for my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception. From a dinner menu offering a selection of exceptional fare to the very attentive yet discreet service from a fully professional staff, guests were unanimous in their comments that this was the best wedding they ever attended. To say that a party atmosphere prevailed where all guests... More

Came here with a group of 5. This was our second trip here and it was very good. Wait staff were very attentive. The place was packed (thursday night) and very noisy (the table beside us). Food was great - Venison and Lamb were sampled as well as an assortment of appetizers. Good wine selection

Hosted a group of 26 for my Canadian meetings and even good restaurants have experienced challenges with larger groups but not this night! The service, food and attention to detail were off the charts awesome! Coq au vin, filet mignon & black cod were all incredible. Comments from my guests for 2 days, "best steak I ever had", "the fish... More

We attended as guests at a large function at Eighteen. The quality of the food was excellent. Since it was a large affair, the menu options were limited to two entree choices, which is an excellent arrangement to allow the kitchen to be prepared with a minimum of confusion. Between the four of us in our particular seating we had... More

From the moment you walk through the grand door, the service begins. This is what I expect from a fine dining establishment. Taken care of on every aspect. Great service and food. This is truly one of the best establishments in Ottawa if you are seeking an amazing dining experience.

You would think it's a small thing, but the oysters were the most nicely shucked I've ever had. No grit, no rough bits, no flakes of shell. It really adds to the enjoyment. Oh and the rest of the food was lovely too. It was the service and attention to detail that made an impression on me. We didn't mention... More
