Had an absolutely fantastic time at Riviera last night with friends! The whole experience was just incredible. The food? Out of this world. If you go, you have to try the whitefish caviar—it’s a must. The roasted octopus was also amazing. Our waiter was so great and really helpful. There are tons of drink options, and when I mentioned what I usually like, they made a spot-on suggestion that I loved. Trust their recommendations! I can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend!

About the restaurant
Chop was created for people who love sharing, connecting and everything steak. We are proud to offer a menu that shares our commitment to sustainable beef sourcing, serving high-quality cuts of 100% Canadian beef. It isn’t just the meat that’s special – it’s also how we cook it. Our Montague broiler cooks at up to 1800 °F, giving a beautiful crust and flavour to every steak! We slow roast our prime rib in a humidity-controlled oven, keeping it mouth-watering and tender. And we put this level of care into each of our hand-crafted drinks, and from-scratch dishes, including plant-based and seafood options, with something for everyone to enjoy. All of this quality comes with friendly hospitality in warm and energetic rooms. Open for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night!

This is the first time I choose the quiche/salad. It will be probably the last time as the portion is very, very small. Increasing the salad ratio would be the minimum acceptable at a reasonable cost.

About the restaurant
With a name that means "cozy or nice atmosphere, but also belonging and general togetherness," gezellig invites guests to experience an elegant menu of local, seasonal cuisine using french techniques in a casual and welcoming environment. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, gezellig prepares each menu item using high-quality ingredients purchased locally. On the menu are items such as seared scallops, braised beef shortibs, potato gnocchi, beef tartare, duck breast, and wild-caught lingcod. Our classic butterfinger for dessert is a staple that has been on our menu since opening in 2012

First time dining at Fratelli this Monday and it was great! Staff was very friendly, food was delicious—I got the giacomo pizza and it was very good! Others in my group got pasta dishes and were also very content. On Mondays, wine bottles are half off, which was a nice surprise as we did not know that prior to showing up for dinner! Very reasonably priced! I would definitely recommend this place and will be dining here again!

Food was great as usual and so was the service. However the temperature in the restaurant made it difficult to enjoy the food. It was unbearably hot - both myself and the person I went with were sweating. This is the second time in the past month that I’ve encountered this issue at EVOO.

We had a fabulous dining experience at Arlo last night! So glad we discovered this gem! The food was amazing….so creative! My husband and I always share our dishes so we get to try a number of things on the menu. The scallops, lobster and cod were fabulous! Cozy atmosphere and great, friendly service. Will definitely go back next time in Ottawa!
