“Nice Get Together Lunches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Rreliable food in one of Ottawa's most desirable locations. Walk the canal and time your walk to get to the Ritz just before noon. It gets very busy. Go on a nice day so you can sit and eat by the Canal. A truly memorable Ottawa experience.

“Food was terrible!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

They should remove the word 'Ritz' in the name of the restaurant. There is nothing fancy about it and the food was terrible.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Have eaten many times at the Ritz. Always very enjoyable but the latest visit was disappointing. Their specialty has always been wood fired oven pizza. On this visit there was no special pizza offered and it appears the menu has changed with fewer pizza options. The service was good but the temperature of the restaurant was very cold. They did turn up the heat when asked but little improvement.

“Great locale and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

There is nothing finer than sitting on a patio overlooking the Rideau canal on a fine day. The meu is fairly limited and not exciting, but the quality is there and they dont gouge diners for the view . We go back regularly.
