I have been to the wine bar here several times this year, and overall enjoy it and will return. However, sometimes service (while charming) can be inefficient in terms of timing. As an example, recently we asked for additional bread for a charcuterie plate, and it took such a long time arriving we had given up on the dish. Similar... More

I have been to Beckta and Play a couple of times, and obviously, they are both very nice. Beckta has a quieter, more respectful atmosphere than Play and is a great place for a serious business lunch. But to be completely honest, I do not always 'get' the concept of small-plate, fine dining. I had a crispy fish sandwich the... More

This is my Full Review of Beckta in Ottawa. Executive Summary: From the courteous and attentive service to the delightfully crafted courses of food, this restaurant is a winner. This was my third visit to Beckta. Pure and simple, the best value yet high end restaurant I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. I had the chefs tasting menu... More

We choose the right spot for a special celebration. My friends and I had a fantastic time. The food was phenomenal and delightful service. Attentive, friendly and efficient. Will definitely be back for another fine dining experience.

The food was good, although the menu was limited to uninspiring options. However the dishes were well prepared and tasted delicious. This is an upscale restaurant so don't go unless you are prepared to spend.

Had a couple wonderful meals at Beckta with friends. The food is impeccably prepared, very traditional. For me, Beckta is not where I go for something innovative or to blow my mind. It's consistent. However, I personally find the decor stuffy and old, but that's obviously an individual's preference. I like things on the minimalist, airy side!

My wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here. The restaurant is located downtown opposite to the Ottawa city hall and faces the Ottawa Court house. It should be mentioned that the food is pricey but delicious and well presented. Service was excellent as well. The restaurant is housed in a well maintained heritage building. A good choice if...

We always love coming to Beckta, where we have had many excellent meals over the years. This time, we had oysters followed by grilled scallops, accompanied by a rich and powerful Greek white. What we miss, since this restaurant moved from Nepean street is the audacious, "we'll try anything once" à la carte menu. They should really think about bringing... More

We have been twice to this restaurant with friends and both times nothing to write home about. In my opinion, very pricey for the quality of the food. In Ottawa many restaurants try to duplicate what's in ie. nouvel cuisine and Beckta is one of them. Their prices are unreal for what you get. Its for people that have more... More
