“Great dinner with friends in Ottawa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

While in Ottawa on business, our Canadian host took us to this restaurant and the five of my colleagues and I enjoyed it immensely. All the meals were pleasing to our pallets and desserts and dessert wines were delicious. Highly recommend this very unassuming place.

“Always great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Loved the wood fired pizza. Kitchesipee (spelling?) Beer Pie was yummy. Last time in the capital we ate there several times. Still a great atmosphere and of course great food. Lots to chose from besides pizza too!!

“Lively, decent food, slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

We went as a group of 5 on a busy Saturday night. Vibe was nice, servers were pleasant but there just didn't seem to be enough bodies to do the job. Took too long to get our wine and too long to get our entrees. When the food did come, it was apparent that mine at least had sat under the warming lamp a bit too long. Flavour was good but it was a bit dried out. I would go back but would aim for a quieter period.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

We didn't make reservations for a busy Saturday night here but we got the last three seats at the bar.
The bartender was very accommodating and the GM took our order because it was so busy and was also a very pleasant man.
Food took just the right time to come out. We had bread and oil while we waited and it was delicious.
I ordered the fettuccine with chicken and shrimp and it was delicious. Huge portions as well.
Would totally come back here again!
