Excellent food and service, in a beautiful old building setting, in downtown Ottawa. Flat rate ($5) indoor parking in the evening. Menu offers a large variety of dishes and wines. Quiet armospere and very professional staff.

My wife invited friends to celebrate my 76th BD. Everyone but I enjoyed the evening... I did not like the choice of the main course. Story repeated to all our friends. In July to celebrate her BD, I invited another couple to... You guessed it, at Beckta to her big surprised. It was a great evening; the service, the table... More

Had a generally positive experience at Beckta over dinner, but the food didn't really meet our hopes and expectations. Atmosphere is very nice as well as the service - both refined but relaxed at the same time. Cocktails and wines were also fine. Disappointment was with the food. Appetizers and mains were beautiful to look at and had some strengths,... More

I understand this resturant had a good reputation and was expecting great things. Unfortunately I can not rate it higher than I have given the price of the meal and the overall experience. The food was good not great - I have tasted french cuisine better. The service was good not extraordinary. The ambience was distant not warm. The entree... More

Great wine menu as expected, both by... More

Beckta is a place to enjoy, relax and above all appreciate... The food, wine, music, house. The tasting menu takes about 3 hours. The 3 course menu about 2... Everything very fresh and delicious.

I had always wanted to try Beckta due to its reputation but on my visits to Ottawa it was always a bit inconvenient due to my hotel locations and schedule.I had frequented his less expensive restaurant, Play, in the Byward market and had always been happy. This time, after getting to my hotel in the Elgin Street area I discovered... More

6 of us dined in the wine bar section, not the main dinning lounge. There seemed to be a lack of servers maybe. When we did get service it was great. Food was not as good as it should have been. Nice atmosphere though. Maybe it was an off night.

The building is gorgeous and service is very good, but the food is not nearly as good as expected. The salad was very bland. The portions are small. The desserts tasted as if the sugar was forgotten. Very disappointed and probably won't return.
