Within the hour and 10 minutes we were there, we were reminded 3 times about how they were double booked and we needed to be off our table at a certain time. This includes immediately upon arrival and when deciding on menu items with the server. Everyone was much more concerned with pushing us out than providing a half decent dining experience. Our server was inattentive, dropping off drinks while talking to the table next to us. To the point that when we ordered appetizers, we had a question about another item, mentioning twice that we would just start with the apps, then reconfirmed the appetizer order, only to receive our appetizers and the other item we inquired about as well. The calamari was terrible. It was soggy with raw breading on many of the pieces. The seafood tower was alright but the lobster and crab was tough, clearly pulled out of a fridge (who knows how long it was in there) and tossed on the tower. (Go to Mati for a decent tower in Ottawa) Needless to say that after the appetizers we granted the restaurant it's wish of getting rid of us. I would have been disappointed with this experience at a chain restaurant, let alone a "high-end" dining restaurant. Many people we spoke to after told us of similar experiences. Too bad we didn't check with them before wasting our time and money.

The food was spectacular and the service (Mika was our server) was friendly, knowledgable and accommodating to some of our specific dietary needs. This is a special occasion restaurant for us, but it is so good we hope to go more often.

Good service at first but then it took for ever to get the bill and pay at the end. In the case of a business meal, the process to settle the bill shouldn’t take 20 minutes.

Waitress was inattentive and not engaging . Initial service was slow 10-15 minutes after we sat down. No acknowledgement from any wait staff when seated. Our waitress did not want to be there.

Waitress did pour wine.

Food was good.

Wine prices- not well priced - at the very very high end in comparison with other restaurants.

This was our 3 RD visit and the prior 2 visits were excellent.

The food was great, but pricey. Everything is a la carte. It's unfortunate that sides are not included as part of the main course. Otherwise great!!

Overall my wife and I had a very nice time at the Shore Club for New Year's Eve 2019.
Very good and fresh food; very nice waiter.
Yet 2 drawbacks: 1/ the melted "butter" served with the seafood tower was actually not good, not butter, more an oil; 2/ the man that gave us our coats back when we left, was very unpleasant, passing us our coats haughtily, not even helping us pull them on. He might have been the manager, so even worse. This individual should take some training on how to greet customers and/or let his nice female staff take care of them (very pleasant staff when we arrived).

I strongly recommend giving yourself between half an hour and an hour and extra time unless you're staying at a nearby Hotel. Traffic can be very unpredictable and parking can be very difficult. They do have the option for valet however. I opted for the seafood tower which was very good ;although it's considered an appetizer I ate it as my main course. My date had the steak and said it was very good. Expect to spend between 2 and $300 a minimum for two and keep in mind everything on the menu is a la carte.

We were out for a relaxed couples evening and it was extremely loud to the point of us not being able to have a conversation. They originally seated us beside a large group with people standing beside the party table as well as our table. We were moved to another table which was somewhat better. When I booked the reservation, I asked for a quiet table.

The quality of the food was exceptional. The noise was a bit loud for my tastes, but I tend to prefer quieter more intimate establishments in general. Very good service, combined with the exceptional food more than made up for any distaste of noise levels though.
