The standard is always set high at this restaurant. The service, the food, the wine, ambience. Enjoy this establishment for a great dinner, special occasion or business meeting.

Every time we go we are delighted with the quality of the food and service. We had our son't wedding reception there a few years ago and everyone raved about the quality of the food.

We had the pleasure to dine at Eighteen when we were in Ottawa last month. Food was wonderful. Service was first class. Definitely one of the best meals we have had in a restaurant. everything was perfect. When we return to Ottawa, we will make reservations to be sure to dine there again.

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...
