This has been hubby and my fave restaurant for many years. We don't get out as often as we would like and hadn't been in quite some time. While the food was simply amazing (we had a blacked peach w/ bacon jam for an app), I had seared tuna (delicious) and hubby and steak (also very good although not as... More

Great seasonal dishes which change often. Very friendly service, and a nice selection of beers and wine. One of the best restaurants in Ottawa.

I had a wonderful dish made with a variety of local mushrooms and with chicken and bacon. The flavours and textures were perfect, as was the serving temperature. They have many area beers, and several wines by the glass. They seem to have enough staff to meet peak demand, which is great for people on a tight schedule. It's always... More

Very much enjoyed dinner with my sisters. Service was excellent. Wine recommendation were " en point". The appetizers were great. Good variety. The only complaint was the flank steak done "sous vide" i expected it to be more moist than it was. The salmon and scallops were tasty and fresh. The dark chocolate desert was one of the best i've...

Four of us had dinner at the Gastropub largely because one of the couples had received a gift certificate for this place. I was hesitant to go at first as my previous visit cost me more than I wanted to pay, but, in the end, you get what you pay for. We weren't disappointed - first off, the service was... More

I came here with a group of friends and coworkers, and we proceeded to enjoy a potpourri of appetizers and dishes, each of them prepared with care and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere and service only added to the experience.

A had the greatest grilled tuna dish! Soup and desert in the menu was so-so, but that tuna. Amazing. I had good help in selecting a wine I could pair the tuna with and was happy with it. Great service, great experience. Would like to come back to try the main restaurant area upstairs.

The service is great, friendly and good. We had a really nice grilled asparagus and duck breast, my only comment was that it was good but not great, The dick breast was a bit dry. The beef tartar however is perfect, fresh, tasty, well spiced and melts in your mouth. I really enjoyed the Pork Belly, it was succulent and... More

The Wellington West area is one of, if the best, areas for food and restaurants in the city. We went for lunch, had exquisite, friendly service. Meal was started with freshly baked bread, and only got better. Seasonal menu is great, with a little something for everyone. I work downtown, but always send people to this area, the food cannot...
