“Beckta does it again !”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Twice a year, we are a small group that like to enjoy the Beckta experience. We always take the 5-course discovery menu. We have never been disappointed in the past and this proved to be true again on our last visit, early in January 2014. The experience starts when the waiter begins by making sure that there is no change in our allergys, they keep a close record from our past visits. The food is always excellent and the service, as usual, was up to the standard you expect from this kind of a restaurant. We usualy like to do our own wine matching but on our last visit, the waiter step forward with is own suggestions for two different courses, a Pinot gris from the Niagara région with foie gras and a Barbera with ravioli and his suggestions were a perfect match for both courses, and this at a very reasonnable price. The decor could do with an update but other than this small detail, Beckta did it again ! See you in next July

“great experience this time around”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

After having a rather disappointing experience the first time, we tried it a second time around for NYE. Let me tell you that this time, we weren't disappointed! We spent a fabulous evening with a couple of friends. Everything was simply divine : the food, the wine and the atmosphere. We fully enjoyed it and we'll be back.

“Happy New Year!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Our New Year's Eve dinner was the 5-course fixed menu at Beckta. My husband also chose the wine-pairing with each course. We weren't disappointed. The food was excellent - tasty, beautifully presented. The service was impeccable and we enjoyed the knowledgeable server, Derek. It was a busy place that evening but we had a lovely meal and will return to Beckta again.

“Overcooked salmon at $35!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is an elegant and innovative restaurant. Too bad the food doesn't measure up. I ordered a salmon fillet which the waitress warned me might be a "bit under-cooked", and did I mind? I said that in fact I preferred it nearly raw, or in other words "seared." What did I get? A thoroughly over-cooked salmon fillet, and worst of all, they gave me the tail-end! Considering the very high prices in this restaurant, this is simply unacceptable. Luckily, someone else paid for it, but I would certainly never return and pay out of my own pocket!

“Excellent meal at an excellent restaurant”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We recently went to Beckta to celebrate an anniversary. Both the food and the service were wonderful & we had a great time. The most memorable dishes were the Wild Icelandic Char & the 5 degrees of chocolate dessert. In addition, the wines by the glass suggested by our waiter were great choices & accompanied our meals perfectly. We love the ambiance at the restaurant, the service & of course, the food. Beckta is definitely one of the best restaurants in Ottawa.
