Ridiculous. Amazing. Wonderful... There aren't enough clear, obvious descriptors to assess 'the Wellington.' In the west end of Canada's nation's capital (Surprise! it's not Toronto), this gastropub delivers in so many ways. It's clear the teams goal is to blend a casual setting - both physically & socially - with high-end food & drink. And they do. Vegetarians ate well... More

We had a get together with friends and dinner at the Gastropub was very tasty. The seating was a little tight but the ambiance was nice. The menu was interesting and everyone found something that fit. It was cooked very well and extremely flavourful. The price was a little high but the food was worth it.

This used to be a great place, packed at lunch (and dinner too) to the point where it was not for the hard of hearing ( too noisy with so many patrons). Often you needed a reservation - not anymore. I went with a colleague for a lunch meeting and there were only a few other tables occupied. My friend... More

I've been to the Wellington Gastropub many times since they opened, usually 3-4 times per year. The menu changes daily, and you can check it out online before you go. They always have a seafood/fish, beef, chicken, vegetarian main, etc. I have a sous-vide steak there once that was incredible. Lunch is the cheaper option and is also delicious. I... More

While we've lunched here in the past last night was our first dinner experience at the Gastropub and it was a real pleasure. A very full house didn't detract from the attentiveness of the knowledgeable and friendly staff. We started with some wonderful home-made bread prepared with yeast from a local brewery - soft and tasty. A glass of Hinterland... More

Perhaps my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed by the food and the atmosphere. Service was good, but the place was a bit noisy. The menu was not extensive, but I guess I picked the wrong choice, as I was quite disappointed with the meal. I had also expected a wider beer assortment, as the place is also... More

It can be hard to get a reservation but for good reason. The staff were all AMAZING. Seriously my friend got up from the table and a staff member refolded her napkin while she was away. The wine list is above average for the area and the food, oh gosh the food. I consider myself to be a foodie. I'm... More
