Very nice restaurant with good food...

Had very good service and the food was the same. Nice atmosphere, casual but not too much so. Really enjoyed it and will be back.

This is a upscale restaurant built in the vein of the Houstons chain with dark woods and cocktail menus. The prices are on the steep side and the staff are above-average looking. Our business group expensed the meal, but when I looked around there were others who were paying out of their own pocket. Overall I was disappointed by the... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback! I am not sure if all of the billing for your group was covered, sometimes the organizers request separate checks for particular beverage items? If you have more questions surrounding that – I would be more than happy to dig into it for you! My email address is;ashleyh@charcoalgroup.ca or... More

Had dinner here last Friday with five other friends. Service was friendly but not overly efficient or attentive. Pleasant environment and we were able to reserve our preferred table. I ordered the Ahi Tuna Tartare app hoping it would at least rival the Tuna Tartare I had last month at 3 Brasseurs in Ottawa. Sadly the Wildcraft version did not... More

Finally got to Wildcraft a couple of weeks ago, joining a friend for a celebration lunch. She had raved about the burger and sweet potato fries......I had the burger and regular fries---FANTASTIC! We had a wonderful table right infront of the fireplace on a chilly Saturday. Can't wait to go back for dinner :)

Many choices on the menu. I ordered winter soup and a salad both were ok. my Husband order a grilled cheese which came with chicken. he thought that there would more focus on the cheese. the sweet potato fries were a bit spicy for his taste. the service and restaurant ambience was great.

Slow and boring, food is uncomplicated and roadhouse quality. The kale ceasar very good. The wait staff slow. Here for a dinner and two birthdays , the champagne a nice treat. The cheesecake lolls nice too. . Why can't the chef get it right? Better off going to the Asian, hot food. Crisp veg..... Why can't we o food correctly?????

Over the last few years I have eaten here many times. There is always consistently good food and great service. It is a difficult selection process because the menu is so interesting.

Very nice atmosphere when entering and service is very good. Our meal was very enjoyable and served with a high degree of professionalism. Would recommend people to try this place if it is not too expensive for your wallet. Very nice experience.
