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

From someone who's dined at every establishment in the city, I would have to say this is one of my best experiences ever. Although due to COVID it was patio dining, the staff only provided some of the most comfortable and best service I've ever experienced in Ottawa. Thank you to everyone who made this possible. Will be back ASAP.

The restaurant itself was really nice, I can't wait to be able to sit inside. The patio Is great. Service amazing! THE FOOD 🤤🤤. The prices...don't go there expecting to spend under $100 unless you're by yourself. The washroom is nice too (I think I may have accidentally used the girls washroom but 🤷🏾‍♂️). I had a great and pleasant experience. PS incase you were wondering there wasn't any bugs or mosquitoes or anything like that bothering us.

Fabulous evening at Aiana! Wonderful cuisine, superb service, fairly priced. Looking forward to return and feeling grateful that such a good option is available in Ottawa. Highlight was the pasta with cream sauce and five different mushrooms…yum! Amazing cocktails as well :).

Very professional and courteous service. Though a tad slow.

Oysters were delicious but not worth $7 a pop even with the caviar.
The halibut was a very generous portion but a tad dry (so a few secs overcooked) and low on flavours without the pastry, asparagus, and mousse. The asparagus were amazing.
Nice wine pairing suggestion (though I usually don’t drink Chardonnay with dinner ;)). Thanks!

Salad too difficult to swallow. Too big and too expensive.

Magrets de canards: too chewy. Not enough vegetables

Rack of lamb: well cooked. Too much sauce: mustard and green - impossible to identify

Only 1 bottle of Cahor in the cellar????

Much too expensive for the quality

The server was amazing and really took care of us. The bartender and kitchen were very accommodating as I requested a drink that was not on the menu and requested substitutions for my entrée. The burrata (tomato salad) was nice and rich. The truffle butter was exquisite. The caviar delectable. My partner had the Ontario Striploin which I tasted and found that it was quite thick and hard to cut through by the end of the meal. It came with a side of potato and duck fat between each layer which was delicious. I’ll definitely be coming back for the truffle butter and the fungi entree. How can anybody have any complaints when the service is so good and the food is so delicious.

Also, gratuity was included in the bill which I found to be amazing.

The food was excellent, truly an art of cuisine and well presented. the only surprise was that it was not mentioned in their website that you pay for a three course meal as in it’s not a restaurant that lets you pay for one meal separately. therefore it was quite too pricey and unexpected.
