Restaurant très chic avec une belle ambiance, la musique est un peu forte mais ce n'est pas ce qui nous a empêché d'apprécier notre repas. Le service était impeccable, l'endroit était beau et propre, le repas était délicieux et pour une première fois, je vous assure que je vais y retourner!

The best service, knowledge and passion comes through on their creativity the menu. We ordered the chiefs experience tasting menu with the wine pairing.
It was the most exquisite meal we have ever had and it could of not been more well matched with wine.
The most ridiculous and surprising plate just before the main course will delight you.
Kudos to the whole team.

The restaurant was, as usual, warm and welcoming. This applies to the actual physical surroundings and especially the staff. The crudo was superb, both with subtle nuances of flavour but also a lovely underlying heat emanating from its andouille oil. Both mains, salmon and black cod were carefully prepared; their textures excellent. The gentle saucing for the black cod was particularly enjoyable. We finished with a plate of artisanal cheeses from Quebec which was the perfect finish to a fine meal. Our main server chose a very suitable wine which complemented both mains. Service was exemplary.

We love this restaurant! It is always the best.

Girlfriend and I went for our anniversary. We both got the Chef Experience from the tasting menu, and it was incredible. Perfect amount of food spread across five courses. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely will be coming back for future occasions!

Our evening was excellent. Grilled octopus was delicious. Lamb and duck were good too, the first few bites tasted awesome, but slowly the flavor waned (maybe it got cold). Our main server was excellent. Others had a few bloopers(still water into sparkling water glass, adding a table to our 2 person table to make room for another group while we were still dining, which was not very nice , etc.). Overall, it was a good experience and would recommend.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Went for Valentine’s Day where they had a reduced menu and my girlfriend and I were blown away. Absolutely recommend going, well worth the price.

Absolutely amazing venue! Food is top-notch and the ambiance matches. We took my mother out for her birthday and the service was very kind and attentive. Our only complaint was being close to the door we were often hit with a very drafty blast of cold air and for the price, we would have appreciated avoiding that. e18hteen is a real treat and is the perfect place for special occasions.

Billed as one of Ottawa’s best. Not sure how. Only positive was a nice waiter. Crab cake smelled very fishy. Shared veal chop was average and not warm. Poor Ottawa if this is your best.

Overall loved our visit. Would only suggest improvement to the Caesar salad and also an increased volume of sides would improve the meal value. Excellent service and ambiance!

My wife and I went there for a quite night away from the kids and that's exactly what we got. Our waitress was polite and knowledgeable about the proper pairings. Food was exquisite. The Chateaubriand was cooked to perfection. Can't wait until we can have another date night. I know where we are eating!

excellent food and wine for the chef's tasting selection from the menu. Staff made the night even better. Even with the restaurant being full, the noise level was low and we could talk with yelling at each other. Keep up the great work everyone.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Nick, whom looked after our coats, hats, gloves and scarves, without missing a beat.
Skylar, brimming with enthusiasm and information, brought a beautiful Duck Proscuitto, Amuse Bouche, which was to die for.
A Gentlemen whose name we didn’t get, brought our Seafood Tower and capably explained every element of the food, it’s preparation as well as the lovely sauces which accompanied.
Kate, our Sommelier, was helpful in every regard and it was clear that she knew her trade.
Altogether, this place was a treasure and left no room for disappointment, whatsoever.
Ten. Ten. Ten...out of Five.
We will return as it’s only a 4 hour drive from Bracebridge.
Many thanks for a memorable experience.
Best,
Dave and Kellie Ross

Beautiful place, excellent service, the amuse bouche and appetizers were excellent and absolutely delicious (the octopus was perfect and the foie gras decadent) but the entrees were a bit disappointing. The lamb was good but pretty ho-hum. (Similar to what you could get at any midrange restaurant) and the salmon was off. The sides were ok but I couldn't eat the salmon. Partner tried it as well to see if I was wrong. I'm not sure if it wasn't as fresh or the supplier wasn't up to par but was disappointing. I will definitely go back because if they can hit the entrees like the appetizers, it would be a fantastic meal!
