Italian
A Northern Italian kitchen inspired by the Bacari of Venice
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.

The service was great, the ambiance was lovely and the food was good. In comparison to other similar restaurants, I found it a bit pricey, but overall it was a good experience.

The food was amazing and very well presented. The portions were really small and should be a bit bigger. I totally recommend this place for the food. They clearly have an amazing and creative chef.
The decor is cute but can be a bit more interesting.

your wine list... too much of the same thing is a bad thing. while your wines are suited to northern Italy, they are all too similar. there are 1000 verities of grapes there. if you did a blind taste test very few people could figure out the blends or even tell the difference, the reds were all light bodied with high acid, and very little finish. throw in a super Tuscan or a chianti please. same with the whites. too similar.

the fish grilled fish and the lobster rav were amazing

Amazing discovery, we will certainly return!

Not only the service was excellent and very attentive to our preferences, but the meals were also presented in a very interesting way. The mix of flavours made our experience memorable. The drinks were a bit pricey, but the cost of food was very reasonable.

Fabulous meal, creative but without compromise to the finished product. Outstanding service. A 10-10. The only miss for us was the cocktails.

My fiance and I went to North and Navy. It was our first time and will not be our last. The food tasted really good. Our server, Sebastien, made some really great recommendations and we took his word for it. We were not disappointed with the polpette-really moist. The meals served were great modern spins on Italian dishes (i.e. popcorn and pasta- who would have guessed....and cannot leave out the small pieces of shaved truffles).

We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere at the restaurant. It was a great evening. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to another quiet evening.

LOVE this place. Low key one of the best restaurants in Ottawa. Big fan of your marriage of classic and modern takes on Italian food. I’ll be back most definitely

Sebastien was the most gracious server, recommending a wine within our requested price range without a hint of discomfort and offering complimentary antipasti and tea when the orders were confused and the decaf coffee ran out. The chips and caviar was a disappointing expensive version of chips and dip but the potato pasta more than salvaged the situation with quality down to its homemade dough.

Good food and great service. My friend did not like the texture of a specific dish and despite my request to charge it and replace with another dish, our waitress did not charge. Though I covered through extra tip, the gesture is appreciated. Overall, great experience.

Underwhelming food experience, which was disappointing given how long we waited too try this place. To top it off, we ordered espressos with dessert. Never had coffee that acrid ever. It was thoroughly disgusting.

Pasta was crunchy (undercook, not al dente). The person accompanying me had a bad mussel. We had warn that we did not want raw food but not warned that a dish had roe in it. The service was friendly and did apologize. They did not charge us for the two dishes that were bad.

North and Navy is an exceptional restaurant! From walking-in the ambiance was beautiful. The service was amazing, the staff really know how to make you feel at home. The food was so delicious, all of the flavours just worked so well together. And we can't forget about the amazing wine list, the wine we had originally ordered was out of stock but our server recommended another one and it was perfect! Will definitely be going there again and recommending all of our friends and family.

I loved the place and our server was very nice. The food was ok. My only complain is how pricey it is. I don't think I will go back for a while. I've should have looked at the menu before reserving. But if you'd like to spend over $100 per person (with no alcohol) for an ok meal, then this is your place.

My boyfriend and I had a great time at North and Navy. The service was great, as were the cocktails and food. :) We are both vegetarian, both times I have been to the restaurant they were able to accommodate with a “chef’s plate” which is full of seasonal vegetables and always delicious.

I would highly recommend dining at North & Navy. The ambiance was upscale and lowkey. The perfect setting for a date. The server was amicable and knowledgeable. I’m not a foodie but my date and I both enjoyed our meals. They have an extensive drink menu and an impressive wine list. The cocktails are professionally mixed. I will definitely be back to try more dishes!
