Dinner while touring the city, convenience factor was fantastic as it’s right inside the hotel. The atmosphere, food selection, and service was high level, we thoroughly enjoyed the meal and experience...

Food was outstanding as was the service.
It’s a shame they can’t have a dress code as the service staff was better dressed than many of the customers.
We enjoy fine dining and dressing for the occasion. This is a very nice establishment with a suggested dress code of business casual.
Unfortunately many customers dressed like they had just been working in their yards!
Great experience detracted somewhat by shorts, tee shirts, dirty jeans etc.

Very nice atmosphere, the chef wasn’t satisfied about the tuna he cooked for me and prepared another and offered a free shrimp cocktail in meantime. Service also was very professional, as it should be in such a nice place.

Our second visit. Last hear we came for our anniversary dinner which wass really excellent. This year decided to come for anniversary lunch to avoid rush hour traffic. Downtown construction was almost as bad. Staff were excellent, unobtrusive but efficient. Little disappointed in the tortilla soup...it was tasty but felt I might be eating the previous day's days left overs. The chowders were well liked. Excellent lobster Cobb salad but would have preferred chunks of lobster rather than crumbled.. no complaints about the club sandwich or beef dip. French fries were excellent.
If we came again we would come for dinner, not so sure about lunch.....though the fish and chips being served at another table looked tempting.

Lovely, efficient service from Mika. Enjoyed our lunches (Niçoise and steak sandwich). My salad was lovely; hubby enjoyed the sandwich, but might try something else next time. Beautiful spot, solid food, great service. Well done.

We went for my birthday, the manager came and greeted us, gave us a little app and dessert on the house which was amazing. The staff was great and very knowledgeable. The only knock was the people at the table behind us were very loud, but that has nothing to do with the restaurant. Amazing spot, we will be coming back!

After checking several reviews, this dinner reservation was made for our 25th wedding anniversary.

The restaurant did not disappoint! Upon arrival, we found an anniversary card on the table from the staff. The seating was in a great location and the staff just couldn’t do enough for us.

Dinner arrived and the presentation was impeccable. Each meal was prepared exactly as requested. The taste was incredible and certainly did the restaurant proud.

We were extremely satisfied with this restaurant, service and dinner. We would never hesitate to recommend it for any occasion. We will certainly make every attempt to visit again when returning to Ottawa.

Bonjour et merci de nous offrir l'opportunité de donner notre opinion.
Nous sortons souper tous les samedis soirs. C'est une fête. Notre budget n'est pas limité. Cependant nous aimons bien manger, découvrir de nouveaux mets , ou les mêmes aliments mais pensés, servis différemement.
Le service à table était bien, sympathique et attentionné. On m'a assise face à un mur. J'ai donc changé de place (à la même table) pour voir un bout de la salle. L'éclairage est plus que tamisé. C'est trop sombre. Claustrophobes s'abstenir. Nous avons dépensé au-delà 300$ pour 2 personnes mais nous avons dû payer notre bout de pain (?!c'est ridicule) Nous avons pris une salade César (bonne mais sans plus) et un chowder de poisson... fade. Nous avons trouvé le steak collé au fond de son assiette et le pavé de poisson dans la sienne. C'est tout. Aucun attrait, aucune surprise. "toooo plain". Comment manger avec ses yeux devant ce manque de charme , de couleurs et d'odeurs? Aucune créativité venant de la cuisine. (Pauvre chef!)
Merci mais non merci.

This was my first time eating here and I must say that I loved it except for one thing which was entirely my own fault. I went to a steak and seafood restaurant and ate fried chicken. The meal was good but honestly not for the price and j should have eaten what they specialize in. Our server Geoffrey was top notch, every other item we ate was good (calamari) to excellent (duck breast & cioppono). If you're seeking a romantic evening out, with some great food, this is your place. Just remember its high end so that means high end prices $$$$$!! Well worth it though for the experience.

Excellent service and food was good. It's a really nice-looking restaurant with interesting decor and lighting. You order your protein and then you order sides for everyone to share. Portions were a good size (not too huge but enough that we felt satisfied). Only downside is it's fairly pricey but typical of a higher-end restaurant in Ottawa.

The overall dining experience was very good. The preparation, presentation and taste of the meal was excellent. However, the service was quite rushed, and certainly not gracious - was it an understaffed night? - not sure. However, an exceptional place is critiqued by exceptional standards - and therefore that evening receives very good and not excellent marks.

Can’t beat the service and quality of food. You wouldn’t think of Shore Club as a place for Vegans but they accommodate everyone and made an amazing vegan risotto! My husband always loves the steak and sides. We will be back, it’s our fav!

Once again the Shoreclub came up all aces! My wife and I return every year for our anniversary dinner and refuse to go anywhere else. From the moment you are greeted at the door to when the last plate is cleared away the service is top notch. The service is impeccable, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is nothing short of perfect! We look forward to going back every year!

Everything was as we'd expected (it wasn't our first time dining here). Surprisingly, it was quieter where we were sitting (in the bar area) than in the dining room proper - for which we were thankful! If I'd make a recommendation, it would be to play something like jazz instead of... I don't even remember what was playing.
