With a name that means "cozy or nice atmosphere, but also belonging and general togetherness," gezellig invites guests to experience an elegant menu of local, seasonal cuisine using french techniques in a casual and welcoming environment. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, gezellig prepares each menu item using high-quality ingredients purchased locally. On the menu are items such as seared scallops, braised beef shortibs, potato gnocchi, beef tartare, duck breast, and wild-caught lingcod. Our classic butterfinger for dessert is a staple that has been on our menu since opening in 2012

    The food and staff is outstanding. The braised beef short rib with creamy mashed potatoes is so good. As far as ambiance goes, we chose a late dinner time to avoid the loud noise and kids but alas it was noisy and there was a group with very young children. The noise level went down significantly at around 8:00 pm. The food is a tad pricey but well worth it and we I will definitely go back.

    Service was fantastic: never without a full glass of water, starter and mains were timed perfectly, dropped knife was replaced instantly, server was courteous and funny without being invasive. Tall tattooed chap, fantastic at his job. Food was delicious but super rich: had the scallops and I will say, order this only if you're extremely hungry. Nut allergy was accommodated without any issue. Their current batch of PEI mussels are enormous and delicious, highly recommend.

    Greens salad was extraordinarily delicious— uniquely flavored with red onion purée and vanilla lime dressing. Wonderful prawns and rice noodles (a bit salty but very flavorful). Spectacular raspberry chocolate crème brûlée!

    Enjoyed a lovely lunch celebrating a birthday. Requested a window seat and was pleased to get the front window booth. Food was amazing as usual and the service was impeccable. The lunch meal of 2 plate selections for $30 offered was impressive - large portions for both dishes. We have enjoyed the brunch, lunch and dinner at Gezellig and never disappointed!!

    We five octogenarians enjoyed an excellent evening, reminiscing about our times together in the 50s. Gezellig facilitated our reunion with their friendly warm ambiance. For the most part the food was excellent; however, a couple of the dishes were not up to our usual high expectations - built upon many years dining there, but this in no way distracted from our joyous reunion. Now if the noise level could be cranked down for us hearing impaired seniors, our evening would have been even better... Thank you to Ry and the other staff for making our evening.

    It was Mother's day but the restaurant wasn't crowded. This time we felt like we were being rushed. The food came quickly and we were in and out in under 75 min. The mushroom and ricotta on challah bread was amazing as was the butterfinger dessert. I had a raspberry creme brule but the creme looked and tasted a lot like raspberry yoghurt. I've had the eggs benedict in the past and it was delicious.
