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 came in for our seven year anniversary, there’s not one thing I could complain about. Everything about her experience was amazing. Everything was worth the price, the staff worked like a well oiled machine. I can’t wait till the next time I go there to try something else on their menu

All the food was good, but we never took a bite and said wow. Flax tweel, very nice. Brussels sprouts - SERVING WAY TOO BIG. We did not know we had to order tasting meal in advance- Huge fail for our anniversary dinner.

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.

Hi Nora, thanks a lot for your wonderful review! We are delighted that you enjoyed your experience at Aiāna. We offer table d'hote lunch service ($50) and a la carte menu for dinner. We had introduced a 4-course dinner experience following the 10-guest restrictions and reverted back to al la carte menu for dinner as soon as the government reversed its decision. We look forward to serving you again. The Team at Aiāna Restaurant Collective

My husband and I, along with another couple had dinner on Saturday evening. The food was great, the cocktails even better. And the service was wonderful. When we arrived we weren’t thrilled about the table we had been given, but after mentioning it, the staff went above and beyond to ensure we were happy. Would recommend! Lovely place!

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.
