Good food and good service. Meal was enjoyable. Thanks
We went for my birthday after researching for a 5 star meal. I was not let down on any level. The staff was spot on with ....well, everything. It was special and 5 stars from start to finish.
We had the Duo Duck and the Duo Lamb. Fantastic. My wife is not a lamb lover and she loved the meal. Yes, that good.
We'll go again
The food was amazing and the staff went out of their way to ensure it was a beautiful night for us , always a stellar experience
For the price of the meal, Eighteen did not meet my expectations.
I took my wife to Eighteen for Valentine's Day. It was a Tableau Menu and we optioned for the wine pairing.
The wine pairing was to include a glass of sparkling wine to start our night, we never received our glass of wine.
My wife ordered Foie gras for her Starter. When she received it the food was frozen.
The rest of the dinner went very well but was overall disappointed with my experience.
Service impeccable, de loin un des meilleurs de la région sinon du pays !!!
Absolutely loved our evening here. Celebrated our wedding anniversary. The service was fabulous, the property is beautiful and the food was delicious. The oysters were amazing. My only negative would be that the main course could have been hotter -- we both had steak. Otherwise the flavours, presentation and creativity were perfect. Thank you.
We went to eighteen for the first time on a Saturday night. The ambience is great, and all the food is very expensive, which is fine as long as you get the rewarding feeling of a fine dining experience. The server seemed frazzled most of the night, he took a long time to come take our order after we had closed our menus, and then once we ordered, my date's first meal choice was sold out. The food was very good, but we were disappointed that the server seemed too busy to come around to fill our wine glasses from the very expensive bottle of wine we ordered, so we had to pour ourselves...These are just a couple of things that I don't expect to happen when going out for a 300$ dinner for two in this city...
It is a rare occasion indeed for our family of 5 to find a restaurant that manages to completely satisfy everyone's expectations for every course of a three course meal. Over the weekend Eighteen managed to do that and more. The crabcakes, carpacio, Caesar and beetroot salads and a steak tartare starter done to perfection with AAA beef (chopped - not minced) raised everybodies expectations and the superb cod, lobster, duck, lamb and pasta maincourses finaly just proved the point that Eighteen is in a class of its own.
The elegance of the setting in addition to the neatly dressed, attentive and courteous server at our table rounded off the picture of fine dining done right. We will definetly be back soon.
High expectations that we not met. Food was not great - had to send steak back for being undercooked. Crab cakes were bland.....very pricey for not great food.
We had a marvellous dinner experience. The food and service were perfect. It's our favourite restaurant in Ottawa. Cant wait to go back.
