At Aiana, our humble roots are planted in a desire to bring the abundance of Canada’s food products – many of which grow wild in or around Ottawa – to the forefront of flavourful dishes.

Traditions and techniques long forgotten (yet well-loved) are restored here, not only in tribute to what’s been practiced and procured by our nation’s peoples for thousands of years, but also in celebration of the one thing capable of uniting friends, family, and foes alike: food.

We're firm believers that an exceptional dining experience is built from the inside-out: it starts with quality talent and permeates all levels of service from there. This is why we've implemented a service fee in place of the tipping model. It allows us to redistribute gratuities to pay a living wage to ALL of our employees, ensuring – at a minimum – they are able to cover the actual costs of living in our community. It's just one way we plan to make a dent within the hospitality industry

We had a great time. The staff are all super friendly and the decor is very cool. We had the bison tartare & black walnut salad to start followed by the pork chop & short rib. The short rib sauce with black lentils was outstanding. We finished with hay ice cream... yes, it’s a thing ! The ice cream had hay in it, or at least a subtle hint of hay ! It’s my wife’s favourite restaurant now (mine too) !

During this COVID time I had expected a bit more separation between guests, but this was not the case.

The drinks were fantastic!

Kitchen was a bit uncreative, throwing truffle on everything does not make the food exception, but rather unimaginative in my opinion. The pot pie was a bit bland in flavor - I'd rather go for the vegetable pie from thyme & again to be honest.

Let's see what they can do post COVID.
