    This is the first time we have been to D’Arcy McGees and we will most definitely be back! The food selection was amazing and the food we ordered was fantastic! Our waiter was very friendly and attentive to our table.

    I’ve lived in Ottawa since 2003 and never been to Darcy McGees. Finally went yesterday for Paddy’s Day, since it’s always in the top 10 places to celebrate. The first sign to stay away was the green beer. No self respecting Irish person would touch the stuff. The band sang off key and ruined a number of songs with the wrong tempo - it’s like they saw the words but had never heard the songs. And the overall ambience was severely lacking. We ate fast and went somewhere else where we had a real Paddy’s Day celebration.

    I noted that the size of the meal was smaller than the last time we ate here. The food was good but he portions seemed smaller. The service was excellent. The ambiance was as expected and the volume of conversation was loud.

    The food was mediocre at best but the service and ambiance were great. If you are going for a pint the place is wonderful.

    Convenient to the NAC and Rideau Centre. Food is top notch. Service very responsive and caring. Little round tables are a tight fit but manageable

    The food is always excellent. I love the pastry on their pies! It is the perfect place to go before a show at the NAC.

    We reserved a table before going to a show at the NAC (the Eagles tribute band - amazing). Got our table right on time, I had the chicken leak pot pie (homemade) with wine sauce mash potatoes and sweet potato hash with onions and it was succulent… my husband had the wings hot but not hot enough but big well cooked wings. We shared 2 bottles of Sauvignon Blanc ( hey it was date night!) which was very good - New Zealand. Would go again even if we didn’t have a show, worth it!
