North and Navy
Our menu is inspired by tradition and dictated by the quality and availability of ingredients. We play off the similarities between the climates of Eastern Ontario and Northeast Italy, and create our take on classic dishes made with seasonal game, seafood and vegetables. Plus, sometimes we’ll just add whatever we want.
Small portions and quite pricy, but overall very good quality a lovely atmosphere.
Intimate space, great service, good food and good wine. Loved the freshly made pasta and antipasta assortment. Looking forward to going there for cinq a septs for negronis that looked super interesting.
Love coming here every time! Well taken care if by Pascal, food is always excepcional. We even got to meet the Chef.
Will be back
We truly enjoyed the typical Italian atmosphere. We had a drink at the bar (back of the restaurant) and then went to our table. Service and attention to detail was flawless. Our host (she didn't tell us her name and we forgot to ask) was handling 7 or 8 tables without any issue and was able to explain each dish on the menu in great detail - and with a genuine smile.
Would go back anytime.
Wonderful food, beautiful decor and great service. We will definitely be back!
Awesome food was greatly
Food is very flavorful, inventive, and beautifully presented. Service is impeccable. Different rooms offer different settings, ambiance. Portions are on the small side. Prices are on the high side. Complimentary in-house bread was very good. Wine list has a lot of good Italian choices.
As always, North and Navy was extremely pleasing -- especially for our friends from the US
Love taking my fiends here to enjoy a favourite of our
Treated like royalty by staff - wonderfully paced meal for a special night out!
Who knew that liver and onions could be that good, and the ricotta with mint and peas purée was delightful
Belated Father’s Day.
Exceptional! Perhaps one of the best meals I’ve had in Ottawa in decades.
Good service that was timely and efficient combined with original tasting food that was well presented.
Not your run of the mill italian food. Overall worth the price. Quite noisy at peak times.
Fix the air conditioning. We found the restaurant quite warm. Also, although people were not yelling or speaking loudly we found there to be quite a bit of ambient noise.
The meal itself was excellent. We've been before and will go again.
Great experience start to finish. Knowledgeable staff and the food was fantastic.
Great service, food and ambience. Our favourite place in Ottawa.
Amazing flavours and welcoming space. Wonderful way to spend a Sunday evening. And really enjoy the team.
Lovely front window
Great food and service
Delicious food and wonderful presentation and service.
We love this restaurant! It’s the perfect mix of high-end and accessible cuisine - with the opportunity to try new and interesting foods with the comfort of north Italian cuisine. Special mention to Seb - a truly excellent server.
The reviews haven’t been as rave as in the first year or two. Not unusual. But for us on a Monday evening it was five stars in every category.
As always bar staff were attentive and receptive to special requests (no egg on my secondi).
Bartender came over just before the end of happy hour to inquire if we wanted anything before happy hour finished.
Food was (as always) excellent and flavourful.
Do not go on Sundays because it is a different menu that was on their website. The food on Sunday with some of the worst Italian food that I have ever had. Gary
We didn't really like the food all that much. It was Ok, but nothing to write home about.....
Excellent. We would highly recommend. The setting is lovely and private. Our waiter explained everything on the menu. I liked the limited menu. The variety would satisfy anyone. I would highly recommend North and Navy to anyone wanting a special dinner event
North and Navy was a fabulous surprise. The food was complex and earthy.
This was the first time that I tried this little place. It’s located in a charming old house and has an intimate atmosphere. The service was excellent and the food was very nicely prepared. It was delicious, and presented very creatively. My guest and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The only criticism I have is that it’s a tad overpriced.
Service was good technically but lacked genuine care
Food was well executed, a bit heavy on the butter
Wine list needs to be elevated
Food was average. Not as good as previous visits. I would still go back
Food, wine and service were all top notch. A great experience!
Cozy place, great food, very nice server who took the time to explain. Would go there again.
Sebastian as our server was an absolute pleasure. We relied heavily on his recommendations and we were delighted with everything he recommended. The service all-round was outstanding and the food was simply wonderful. We’ll be back for sure.
Food and service were a bit lacking, however, it is usually very good.
The staff and chef did everything to accommodate our food restrictions and the result was great. The steak Florentine was amazing, with a huge side plate of sweet potatoes and another huge side plate of mushrooms and wild carrots.
Martini cocktails are unfortunately diluted: low alcohol level and no real taste.
Bar area is extremely loud (poor acoustics).
Food was delicious and our server was awesome! Love the decor and atmosphere.
This is a special restaurant. My wife and I are taking a car trip through Canada. I had researched this restaurant and it exceeded all expectations. A really cool venue. Food and service were spectacular., I would highly recommend this spot. You will not be disappointed.
The deportment of the staff, as well as the presentation and quality of the food, were all excellent. Running a professional kitchen myself, I usually have a hard time stomaching the cost of dining out at places like this because the margins are usually incredible, but that usually accounts for limiting seating space and time spent. 40% margins are pretty standard in the industry, but it seems that, food inventory costs alone accounted for, the margins would be closer to 75-85% at this particular establishment. The company and the service would have to be impeccable to make up for the difference, which today was achieved.
Dinner was great, food was exceptional and our waitress was very knowledgeable and didn’t pressure or rush us. My chair was over an ac vent hat got turned on after our meal- I did get cold from it blowing on me. But it was the end of the meal and we were leaving shortly so it didn’t overly bother me. But I could see it being a problem if it was on for the whole meal. Great restaurant, great food, would return and recommend!
