Sterling Restaurant is located in a charming heritage building by the Gatineau River. From within its walls, guests can feel the history of Gatineau.
We had a reservation for 5 at 20:00h. Very busy place, parking was full. We were sitting close to the keyboard player so at times, needed to have people repeat as noise level was a bit problematic.
Food was very good, cooking of meats excellent, I was personally disappointed in the Calamari appetizer, did not find the batter crisp enough and aioli dipping sauce lack a bit of punch. As per our previous visits, cost of adding seafood to a meat main course dish is very pricey.
Bon restaurant. Très belle ambiance. Nourriture excellente.
Taxes and tip included, 500$ for 4
Soup, salad and main dishes filet mignon and lobster were excellent.
Gravlax and oysters were very ordinary and average as well as the desert, nothing special. Otherwise I would have put 5 all the way. That's why I gave 4.
Including 1 bottle of wine 70$
Service and Food are always Excellent at Sterling Restaurant
Meilleur steakhouse de toute la région et une carte des vins unique
The service was excellent and the food really good. However, I would have liked more vegetables with my main course (only got mashed potatoes and mushrooms). I also believe that larger groups should be assigned to specific rooms. We had a large group sitting at the next table and the noise level was too much. It was not pleasant at all.
My first time but not te last one!
Excellent from beginning to the end.
une endroit super
le repas exceptionnel très bonne cave a vin et un service impeccable
Best restaurant I have ever been to. Service was incredible. Food was so delicious. We had a nice romantic evening.
The service was amazing! Always available for you.
Food was great overall I don’t like fish and the calamari was AMAZING! The chicken tho had no flavour really and the peppercorn sauce was rather bland overall the experience was amazing!
As always Sterling did not disappoint. Service and food was excellent.
The food was really good, very tasty and presented well. The service was great.
C’était notre première sortie en restaurant depuis le début de la pandémie. On a choisit le Sterling basé sur nos souvenirs de la qualité de cet endroit et notre confiance que le passeport vaccinal y serait respecté. Nous avons été comblés sur toute la ligne des précautions à la grande qualité du service, une belle ambiance et de la nourriture exceptionnelle.
La nourriture est excellente et le service est super. Je le recommande
La nourriture est excellente et super bien apprêtée!
Un service chaleureux!
Very nice ambiance, and excellent food.
Service rather slow, though.
j'ai toute aimer mais je trouve le cout un peut elever
Dispendieux pour rien. Plat trop riche et service lent. Rien à envier à d'autres restaurants de la région.
We had requested - three weeks ahead of schedule - a table near a wall or window as one of our party is hearing impaired. We did get a table near a wall… under a speaker! As the evening progressed and surrounding tables began to clear, the music got louder. Despite repeated requests to turn it down (answer: either “we are working on it”, or “it’s inside a locked office” 🙄) needless to say nothing was done.
We understand it was a Saturday evening after things are finally getting back to normal, so the place was packed, but there was really no need to add to the din with ever-louder music.
One final complaint: air-conditioning is really not necessary in November.
Other than that, the food was quite good, service attentive. But if you’re looking for a good meal and great conversation, go on a weeknight. Or it will be a very expensive evening of nodding and smiling.
Our go to place when we want a tasty prepared steak over hardwood grill. Waiters were attentive but food was slow to come out, potatoes and mushrooms were more than a little cold
Service impeccable. La qualité ainsi que la quantité de la nourriture ont comblées et même surpassées nos attentes. Un peu dispendieux, mais à l'occasion il est agréable de se gâter un peu.
Great service , was there before and definitely will come back !!
Our second time there; first since Covid and had a lovely time.
Everything we ordered was truly delicious. From the onion soup to smokey perfectly cooked steak… perfect. Very happy with our experience
Outstanding culinary experience. The only other time we had such quality beef was in Alberta. Everything was delectable. Thank you.
Great location, Magnificent service. Steak a bit too much pepper for me but I didnt know to ask for no pepper and fries a little bit saulty. Overall great experience and highly recomended.
The occasion was for a birthday as was indicated on the reservation. In the website, it showed desert plates that were decorated for special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries. These plates included a scant sliver of cake but the decorations were beautiful and celebrated the person in question.
It would have been nice to have received such a gesture, complimentary of course given the cost of the meals and drinks.
Very good food ,a bit pricey but worth it for a soecial occasion.
great place to celebrate that special something for yourself or a loved one. great food, great service, beautiful setting.
We had our wedding reception here five years ago. We came back for my wife’s birthday. Easily one of the best steaks I’ve ever had.
Good food overall, bit pricey but decent portions . Nice and quiet almost too quiet sometimes..ideal for a romantic evening.
Very nice restaurant, food was very good. Service was also very good. I would recommend this venue for anyone celebrating something special.
We were surprised with a "Happy Anniversary" dessert. Thoughtful and delicious.
Nice place. Good food.
My husband birthday , I call and ask at the last moment to see if I was able to add 3 peoples! They were very nice and open a private room for us even with COVID they were shorts of staff. That was very appreciated and made the evening even more special!
Stephane as always great server
food always amazing
Stéphane recommendation for wine again spot on
Je suis très très décue. J'ai commandé un filet mignon avec 2 pétoncles individuelles de grosseur U10 à 10 $ chacun. J'ai reçu 2 très petits pétoncles et beaucoup trop cuits. Ils étaient caoutchouteux et n'avaient aucune saveur. Je l'ai mentionné au serveur et il m'a répondu désolé on n'avait plus de gros pétoncles. Il aurait dû m'en avertir. À la fin du repas il m'a apporté un morceau de gâteau. Vraiment! Les prix pour la qualité de la nourriture ne sont vraiment pas appropriés. Pour les prix, je m'attendais à une vraiment belle expérience.
Friendly, knowledgeable,efficient staff. Ambiance very conducive to dining. Noise level acceptable in spite of wedding reception. Tables well spaced for privacy. Excellent food well presented. Best Carre de sanglier I have had the pleasure to enjoy. Overall an experience I am likely to repeat.
The portions ordered were extremely generous. With these main dishes, you do not require any appetizers. The food is delicious. We came from Toronto to come here. It was well worth our while and trip.
