Went for dinner on a weekday evening, walked in with no reservation. Sat immediately in their main dining room. There is a fair amount of seating but you aren't crammed in either, there is room to breath.
Service was amazing, as they were extremely friendly and checked in frequently to make sure you were enjoying your time. A few warm, fresh buns with maple butter were provided as the food was being prepared. Had a delicious red pepper, coconut curry soup to start. The main course was an amazing experience of a grilled pork chop with pulled bbq Pork of Yore confit, served with rosemary dijon jus, spaetzle, and winter veggies. So fresh, amazing flavours. Ended the meal with a serving of caramel apple pie, that had some strawberry sauce and coffee sorbet.
Even with the attention and focus on amazing food, and professional atmosphere, they also offer a great selection of craft beers from around Quebec and Ontario, available in both pints and flights. This was a much pleasant surprise.
I would easily eat here every time I visit Ottawa.
