I love this place because it does comfort food right every time. Nothing fancy but the fish and chips are glorious with a beer batter and a rich home made tartar sauce Salads are big and wholesome and as rich or as healthy as you like Desserts can be decadent it just a really nice piece of homemade pie. Great... More

I love this place, I consider it to be the premier breakfast/brunch spot in Ottawa, for quality of food/price/service. I have been many times for many purposes, meetings, breakfast alone, with fiends, and with a significant other. The Bennies are good, my go to dish is the California Kid, a bennie with chipotle mayo sauce, could order it every time.... More

I come here with colleagues at least once a week for breakfast and I really love it here. The Sunrise is what I get every time - good quality eggs and bacon, a lot better than most breakfast places in Ottawa. Homefries with the green onions are delicious. The service is phenomenal as well - always cheerful and smiling, which... More

My experience was to wait an hour and a half for food only to have it blamed on the driver with absolutely no accountability or attempt to rectify the situation attempted...bottom line is I paid $50 dollars to wait an hour and a half and experienced horrible service and will NEVER order from the Wellington Diner again and will actively...

David, The Wellington Diner has a 3rd party delivery company. The Holiday weekend must of been busy and or they were under staffed. I assure you we didn't make the food until the driver would contact us. Very sorry it took so long for your delivery to be completed. David I hope now you understand the situation better. Sorry that... More

I ordered a smoked salmon platter with a side of fries for take out. "A generous portion of Atlantic smoked salmon and all the fixings: lemon, capers, red onion & bagel with cream cheese. Served with salad or fries, coleslaw & dill pickle." My first reaction when I received the food was, disgusted. The fries were underneath the smoked salmon... More

Ryan, sorry their was missed items on your smoked salmon platter. Its a popular item so it should not have been missed. Regrettably you also had a bagel over cooked. I agree that for a takeout you should have had 2 different packaging containers. We seldom get salmon takeout orders so we will address the issue on takeout. More

Amazing! Very smooth and I could only handle half of a small portion it's so filling and rich! My order only came to $13 w/ tax so it was a... More
