My girlfriend and I treated ourselves to a night at Beckta for Valentines Day this year and were incredibly impressed. It was my first time so I made the reservation based on recommendations and prior research on the dining scene in the capital. We started with a nice glass of bubbly which paired perfectly with the fresh oysters I had... More

I've been looking for a restaurant like this for a long time. It was full, yet people, even groups, were respectful enough to keep their voices down. That's "really" hard to find in Ottawa. This food.. it's not just food, it's a legendary experience that you have the privilege of being a part of, for a modest fee. The staff... More

The food is always great. The staff is always super knowledgeable and the service is wonderful. I've been here several times now and whether it's for an occassion, lunch with friends or pre-dinner drinks I'm always pleased. I also liked being able to book a private room for times when I've gone with my young kids so that they didn't... More

My wife and I had a great meal at this Ottawa establishment. Steven Beckta has built an excellent eatery. The menu is very simple with very good presentation. The care from both the owner, floor manageress and waiter were second to none I have been to this restaurant several times and the value, care entire experience is worth the visit

I knew we were in trouble when the appetizer was so vinegary. The trout was so bland that my husband really did not enjoy it at all. My mussels were average. We thought the dessert could save the day and we actually had to send the fruit tart back. Such a let down after all the positive reviews.

We recently dined at Beckta and I must say that I was somewhat disappointed with the experience. I had not been there since they moved into their new building. I was disappointed that not much time or effort had been put into upgrading the décor , which has a 70s piano bar feel to it. Also , the paintings on... More

Having moved from its small premises on Nepean St., Beckta now occupies a huge and lovely historical house on Elgin St. in downtown Ottawa. The decor is graceful, most inviting. The service was attentive (but not up to the standard of the old Beckta on Nepean St.), but a bit slow (although this might have been attributable to the kitchen).... More

My husband and I went for an early Valentines celebration. We were seated in a small dining room upstairs, making for a more intimate setting, and with a great view of all the people attending Winterlude events. Our meal was delicious --- we both felt that the raw oysters from New Brunswick were the best we had ever eaten. And... More
