Great accompaniment to the NAC show
Exceeded expectations! It will be an ongoing replacement to Le Cafe at the NAC for future ballet nights. It was a short walk to the NAC and the service was so much better!

The service was very good
The service was very good on Saturday night. My suggestion is to decrease the portion sizes and reduce the price a bit. Our dishes were hotter than the food on them . The food was lukewarm which was not appealing.

Overall, very beautiful restaurant.
Overall, very beautiful restaurant. Food was high quality and well made. As for ambiance - it is a much older crowd - and in addition, the fire alarm kept going off which was a bit disruptive.

Monday night in Shore!
i was with two friends and Bob was our waiter and when he realised that we were going to be there for 2 or so hours, he relaxed and gave us space. It took us for ever to order as we were talking all the time. We ordered the starters first. They were delicious. After we finished the first course, we ordered the main course and a bottle of wine. The wine was a merlot from Napa Valley. A bit tarte to begin with but Bob suggested decanting the wine which did the trick. The main were also good. Two of us had deserts. We even commented about the deserts only being $10 each, as we thought it was very reasonable for a hotel restaurant. The key lime pie was great.
Overall a good evening. My first time there. Will definitely be back again.

Great Service, food is fair
The service was great, the food was fair. I expected better quality and presentation out of a high end restaurant. One friend orderd the steak medium rare and it was well done, the other friend who had steak found it too salty and I was not impressed with the salmon wellington. The spiniach was over cooked and it was huge chunks of papaya. The salmon was cooked beautifully.

Great menu and great food
The menu reminds me of an upper end American restaurant with bone-in rib-eye and bone-in New York steaks. As much as I was tempted for one of these, I had seafood and was not disappointed. The food was cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable.
I will definitely return to The Shore Club on my next visit to Ottawa.

Family, Friends or both!
Ottawa's Westin Shore Club offers a great place for a special family dinner as well as a super place to gather with friends. Fantastic service, wondeful menu and a welcoming atmousphere. Highly recommended for those looking to NOT go to the "chains" but want confidence in high quality food, great staff and a guarantee of a special time. Thanks

"I love the exquisite but relaxed feel of this place - like you are their special guest. I definitely would return to continue the experience and of course recommend to friends and visitors alike. The beet salad was fantastic, the surf and turf special outstanding and enjoyed by all in our party. The service was well-timed and friendly, the wine served a winner."

Nice Place, Good Food and Service
Sofisticated and serious, but my steak was overcooked, so they re did it and comped me on it, nice fix.

Good find on Open Table
Had a little bit of a rough start, as it seemed like the greet and service staff were all new. But they were pros and smiled and did their best :) We all have a first time for everything! You cannot teach someone effort and attitude and these people have great attitudes! I am saying this because I was a bit surprised that the server and the bartender did not know what a basic champagne cocktail was and instead gave me their "signature cocktail"....which was basically a champagne cocktail with other things added (I just wanted it simple! No Dubonnet thank you). Oh well.
The food was excellent, no complaints there. Surf and turf, and well done at that.

Nice setting in the Westin in Ottawa; central location. Staff friendly. Good choice of quality foods, with 'table d'hote' at lunch time.
Good place for business lunches - acoustics are excellent in this restaurant.

Great food and service
From the time we stepped in to our departure, we were treated like VIP customers (it was our first time). The hostess asked if we were there for a special occasion (it was my husband's birthday) and the dessert he ordered had a candle and they wrote happy birthday on the plate. The waiter knew the menu very well and helped me decide on what to order and everything was absolutely delicious. The portions were very generous too. We will go again!

Great evening out !
My husband & another couple had a wonderful evening at The Shore Club. The bar is very intimate & classy. All of us enjoyed our meals and the service was exceptional.

The Shore Club is our favourite restuarant to celebrate family milestones!
Once again, the service and food was excellent!

The Shore Club offer excellent
The Shore Club offer excellent service and great food. The ambiance is really lovely - dark and a little bit seductive. Floor plan allows diners the sense of privacy from the other patrons. Been there for drinks and lunch and keep going back.

Enjoyable lunch at the Shore Club
Had a great lunch at the Shore Club just before checking out at the Westin Hotel where the restaurant is located. The service was professional and friendly. I enjoyed the fish tacos with quality ingredients, nice presentation and portion size was just right. The ambiance in this restaurant and lounge is classy and comfortable.

Exceptional in every way!
Whether you live in Ottawa or just a visitor, this restaurant is a must! From the great menu selection, to the wonderful meals beautifully prepared, to the efficient and friendly staff, to the amazing selection of quality wines - every aspect of this restaurant is 5 star. We've eaten here a few times so we know it wasn't just a lucky experience. This restaurant should be at the top of everyone's list of places to eat in Ottawa!

Have eaten n your restaurant
Have eaten n your restaurant several times and continue to be pleased. If we have
to whinge, well, your prices are a little high. (Oh, and my wife's lamb shank
was very salty). But all in all an enjoyable experience which we will repeat.

Great evening with friends
Had dinner at the Shoreclub with two friends who had never been there before. These are very discerning people who have been to many wonderful restaurants around the world. While the company I had played a big role in making this a great dinner, the decor, the service and most of all the food (and wine) more than lived up to my expectations. The seabass, black cod, tuna, salt and vinegar shoestring fries were all amazing.

Lovely for a special birthday
Great spot, fish selection is phenomenal....service impeccable...highly recommend

Couldn't have asked for more!
We were a party of 6 for a special occasion. It was absolutely great! The food, the attentive service, the friendly staff! Will definately be returning for many more special events. The food is some of the best I have eaten, price is well worth the food and portion sizes are very fair.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food for thought...
We were 4 people and 3 of us decided to share the seafood tower!Great presentation! The seafood was delicious with a very nice variety! Highly recommend it! A little disapointed with the ceasar salad(croutons from a box).Chowder,velouté and very tasty.Temperature of the wine was a little on the warm side.Requested they adjust on the 2nd bottle.Overall...very satisfied!

Good food, but over priced
The proteins were quite delicious but over priced. I had a salmon entree that was delicious, but I have had a similarly delicious piece of salmon for half the cost, sides included at a nearby restaurant. You would hope that the service would make up for the difference in price, but in reality our server was quite absent. The was an amuse bouche served as well as a palette cleanser and that was a nice touch. The restaurant is beautiful on the inside. If the price of the main had included the side dish, my rating would have been significantly higher and I would recommend it to everyone but at an average cost of 30$ for a small piece of fish, that extra 7$ for vegetables really pushes it to the extreme of overly priced.

An elegant place, with good food
I chose the Shore Club because some friends were staying in the Westin Hotel.
The setting is elegant, and the lighting was low, which I appreciated.
We chose relatively small dishes, but the quality of the food was very high.
The service was excellent.
My only criticism is that the music could have been lower. I generally like very low background noise so as to be able to chat more easily with my dining companions. The volume was not very high, but for conversational purposes, it could easily have been lower.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved the selection on the menu! It lived up to our expectations. The servings are large so I would recommend sharing, especially the side plates. Would highly recommend!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was fantastic, the food was excellent and the menu was creative. I'd recommend the Shore Club to anyone looking for a very nice meal in Downtown Ottawa (so long as they are looking for steak or seafood).
