Excellent food/ wine pairing with tasting menu, amazing staff really helpful explaining each course. would happily return next time in Ottawa
High end, excellent food and welcoming atmosphere. Would highly recommend this restaurant, particularly for special occasions.
It is a very beautiful and classic restaurant within the Ottawa scenery. Unfortunately, we were for lunch, but on Sundays they only have brunch, which is basically a buffet. I was there to try some dishes from the main menu, but had to settle with the brunch instead. That is why I am giving a conservative score, since I couldn't taste the restaurant at its best. Needed to say, though, that the waiters were very attentive, and tried to do the most of the occasion after knowing that we were anticipating a very fine meal, which buffets usually aren't. If I ever go back to Ottawa, I will definitely would go for dinner and try that lobster and truffles that got my attention from their website.
We have reservation at 8:30pm. But we wait for another half hour to have our table. That’s the only thing that bother us.
I liked that they were very cautious with the food preparation i.e allergies. Great ambiance, beautiful venue but the food seemed a bit over priced.
The Service was great and the staff was very accommodating. This place is definitely worth a visit!
Celebrating the U-Grad of a special friend.
The ambience, service and fare were prefect for the occasion. We were seated in cozy stone-walled corner adjacent to the lovely fireplace and a window with a view of the Byward Market; wow!
Champagne, aperitifs, wonderful entrees and mains, digestifs, the server surprised my guest with a special dessert commemorating her graduation, specialty coffees... all YUMMY!
It's difficult to imagine how the evening could have been better.
Beaucoup d'thanks to e18hteen!
Great food and ambiance. Staff attentive but a little stiff. Would go again.
Food was amazing. We had the duck (two ways), and the lamb (two ways).
The bread was also light and crispy. Normally, I'm not to take interest in the bread basket, but the baguette was light and crispy.
Had an incredible meal this past weekend. Service was excellent and atmosphere and ambiance was fabulous. Gorgeous building.
The food just didn’t live up to the price. Beautiful place and good service.
Serving staff were accommodating and friendly. The hostess was somewhat frosty upon arrival, not very welcoming. Caesar salad had zero flavour, almost as if an ingredient had been omitted - could not finish. Oysters were bland and salty. The lobster served with the pasta entree was tough, chewy, hard to cut and the filling in pasta was cold. Crab cake appetizer was tasty but not heated all the way through, either. Extremely disappointed overall. Highly overrated. We were offered complimentary dessert but chose to forego and instead ordered room service back at our hotel. The restaurant was also very cold temperature-wise but could have been our specific seating. Nice decor and ambiance.
Eating at 18 was an excellent experience. The food quality and quantity was a great value and the staff were incredible helpful. Food presentation was exceptional. It was our anniversary and they presented us with a special dessert. Well done.
We live out of country. Loved it so much in the past, we brought another couple with us for dinner this time.
Service was impeccable, as well as the food. Was there for a birthday dinner, and was treated to a birthday dessert which was so nice. It was very quiet (we were the only table in there) from 5pm-7pm which was a little awkward, so i'd recommend going for a later time. It was designed really well, we were comfortable at our table. Would go again for sure.
Everything was great.
Our steaks were not warm enough but the rest was great.
The service was amazing, great flexibility with food allergies, creative on how to present each course. Last but not least the food was excellent! Overall very nice experience and will go back for sure.
The food and service were both amazing. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Premium pricing but it delivers on quality and experience
2nd time here took my parents for their 50th. The food was good, I love that all plates showed up to the table at the same time. Great service as well.
Visite 3 jours à Ottawa avons décider de découvrir ce restaurant qui semblait très chaleureux de l’extérieur mais le service nous a bien refroidis très faible comme service
Wonderful Easter Brunch great cheese truffle Brie and great restaurant
Excellent meal with ample time to get to the theatre. The waitress (Hannah) was well versed on everything from wine pairing to ingredients in the meal. She was terrific.
I was a little surprised I didn't notice a poultry option on the menu, but I had the cod and it was outstanding. My husband had the lamb, and he was very impressed
Repas entre amoureux
Food was sophisticated but poorly plated. Some parts were overlooked temperatures were all different on the ingredients on the plate. Poor quality control in a very nice restaurant!!
The food and ambiance, simply sensational! Classy, attentive and knowledgeable staff
Beautiful evening and fantastic food
I do not have one complaint. From the minute my friend and I walked through the door everything was spot on.
Had a great meal meeting up with old friends. Restaurant has a great ambience.
Duck Duo, crab cakes and Caesar salad were fantastic. Cozy and classy atmosphere. Loved it!
We had a fabulous server. The food was excellent. Wine is very good if a little overpriced.
Our second time at Eighteen. The ambiance is warm and elegant, the food superb, and the service is excellent -- professional but friendly, and ...happy!
Enjoyed my meal with my daughter. The food was over-priced, but delicious. Service was attentive and very pleasant.
My family enjoyed another great evening at 18. The food is superb. We are all critical diners and we all found our dishes exceptional. The atmosphere is classy without being stuffy. The staff is all so professional, knowledgable and fun. I had the Ling Cod which was pure heaven. If you want a memorable and relaxing evening, this is a great place to go.
Our night at 18 was very pleasant. The service was exceptional, prompt and friendly. The food was great! The ingredient quality explains the price which is fair. Would recommend it 100%.
We are a somewhat infrequent but long standing customer who besides the food and service, love the fact that we can talk to each other without having to overcome the often noisy environments of many restaurants
Was looking to go out for somewhere to go for a special dinner and have a great meal, and I found it.
Was craving a steak so found this restaurant with some good reviews so gave it a try.
It has nice decor and an interesting layout. It has a feel that you know you're at a nice place but you can just chill and not have to be 'on' at a really fancy place. I was relaxed and liked being there.
I got the Beef Tenderloin and was not disappointed one bit. A great cut of meat cooked exactly how I like it along with a real nice demiglaze I believe? (I cook a great steak myself but this was way better than mine! haha) This was with the mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes. It was all really good. Everything had a nice balanced flavour and was a very enjoyable meal. Also perfect portions too.
I'll come back here for sure.
Always have a great time at E18hteen, regardless of the function. Incredible food, excellent service, lovely surroundings.
It was excellent, and the service, impeccable. I go to Ottawa every year, and I make it a point to go back because we are never disappointed. Service is really top notch!!!!!
Beautiful restaurant and the service is good but the food is nothing remarkable for the price. Crab cakes are fishy and the ling cod is boring. The steak was good but not exceptional.
