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.
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!
Service is very friendly, kind and attentive! Food is delicious!. Due to my late booking, we were seated in the noisy parlour.
Food was delicious as usual, although portions were a bit on some plates considering the price.
Would definitely return for many more meals.
Là nourriture est excellente. Le bruit est trop, par contre... au point d’empêcher une conversation à la table.
Essaye la caille farcie de saucisse. Très bonne !
After two years of wanting to go to North and Navy I finally got there. I am now regretting not going sooner. The sausage stuff quail was amazing and the Tiramisu was the best I ever had. I will be going back for sure.
Food and wine were superlative! The Florentine steak for 4 was worth the 165$. Everyone in our party raved!!
My boyfriend and i were very pleased with our first dinner at North and Navy. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was exceptional. Will definitely be coming back!
One of Ottawa’s best. Chef Adam and the crew are delivering to the highest degree. Great servers and ambience. Always a sure bet for a great evening.
Le service aurait pu être de meilleur qualité. Notre serveuse semblait très expéditive. Elle ne nous a pas expliqué le menu, aucune description des plats (nous avons dû la demander pour chaque plat). Nous avions une réservation à 21h00 et nous avons senti que notre serveuse avait tout simplement hâte que nous partions.
Particularly appreciated the service and decoration/atmosphere. Food was good, but slightly too expensive for what it is if you ask me. However, I could go back with no issue at all
Overall the service was exceptional, food tasted amazing. Portion sizes and menu variety compared to cost were sub par. When you walk out of a restaurant spending 260$ for two people you want to feel satisfied. It was my wife's birthday and A. we did not feel we got good value for the dollar and B we got very little in acknowledgment for the fact it was her birthday. We did let them know before our reservation of the special occasion. Probably will not go again as portion sizes and menu variety for an Italian restaurant is critical for me. As a good Italian friend has told me "Pasta Is Cheap" so feeling a bit ripped off!
Food is very good. Arrancini and popette made very well. Main course are very good too. Carbonara a little blend otherwise still a good dish. Service is amazing!!! drinks are very good. overall amazing experienced!!!
Sébastien, our waiter, was very nice and resourceful. Provided great recommendations that we followed and had one of the greatest meals with great wine accompaniment
Was pleasantly surprised and excited to learn that Ottawa does have some decent restaurants! Great ambiance and good food!
A quaint setting that’s easy to miss- the restaurant is a house between two semi tall office buildings. The food is FABULOUS! We went on a Sunday when there is a “family style” menu and loved it. Will go back on a day other than Sunday to taste their normal menu. A definite return to restaurant!!
We were disappointed overall, with the food as much as with the service. For a high end restaurant, especially in terms of prices, it just doesn't match up with the expectations. The food was good but nothing special. There was no 'wow' factor. The service was nice and personal, but sometimes too slow, especially in terms of bringing water to the table or the wine that was ordered. Wine that was on the wine list was not available so we took another bottle which was offered for the same price which also turned out to be a disappointment. We really wanted to like the restaurant, we loved the ambiance - but I don't think we'll be back.
Server was excellent & the food very good. Only real negative was the very loud patrons surrounding us (multiple tables) though this is something the restaurant can’t easily control.
Great atmosphere and food was amazing. Great pasta.
Fantastic service, unique but still exceptional food, unforgettable ambiance, would recommend 10/10 to anyone reading this review!
Incredible experience as always. Staff are friendly and attentive. Food was exceptional as always. Never a boring night here.
Our server was rude and almost challenged one in our party who had some food allergies and sensitivities. The duck she ordered was specifically requested to be well done and when it arrived - it was not . The server pretended that she did not hear it. No apology just a brush off.. Then for coffee after meal - she forgot an order and the other arrived cold even though it was requested to be piping hot.. Given how disinterested she was on hospitality, we did not bother asking for a correction. A shame as the food and the desserts were amazing as was the ambiance.. The servings can be better for what it costs. You almost feel cheated as the food excels in flavor. The Tiramisu was exceptionally lite and airy.. Not holding one bad server experience against the establishment, and recommending it to friends..
The food was ok the noise level was just awful we ask to change table cause it was so loud. The drinks are good.
The wine list ok
The food was ok nothing to write home about. But this might be my Montréal snob expectation.
As always another memorable experience at North & Navy. The food (outstanding!) the ambience (lively yet chill) and the service ... thank you Vincent for taking such great care of us. You will me missed!
I recently hosted a business dinner for four at NoNa. The service was spot on and the food was simply fantastic. Their pasta was great and the bistecca was cooked very well. We decided to order 'family style' and it added a more engaged and relaxed component to the dinner.
Great food - great cocktails. A tad too noisy with the other tables in our section - but overall pretty good.
A little noisier than we liked.
Food and presentation were excellent and delish.
Service was expert and knowledgeable.
Overall, a great experience.,
Food was delicious and inventive, great wine list, and cozy atmosphere. The only negative was the noise level, we could hear every other table in the room and it was difficult to hear the servers when they spoke to us (but the food is good enough to make up for the noise).
It was our first time dining at North and Navy and it did not disappoint. The reviews on the website were accurate and the dining experience met all our expectations. The dishes were eclectic and delicious. We certainly intend to return.
Excellent food, great atmosphere! I will definately recommend it.
