Ordered 5 different plates. 3 were exceptional. 2 were great. Service was stellar. You pay full price for excellent food. Not 100% sold on the grandpas cottage vibe for the ambience but it’s got a weird charm.

Belmont—the people, the food, the cocktails, the wines, the patrons, the music, the vibe, the needlepoints in the loos—is our all-time favourite restaurant. It’s part of the neighbourhood and a destination too.

Overall the experience was good. The servers were vey attentive and friendly. I had the goat cheese Gnudi. The plate had a little too much other stuff and seemed a little messy but the taste was there.

Great vibe and friendly service; nice brunch options and prosecco but be careful, they also serve with juice! :D Coffee meh, salmon was arguably over-cooked but very good nonetheless. Reunite with friends, come on a date or eat solo at the bar! Will definitely be back. Much love here.

Food was excellent (truly excellent) but service was the only let down, it was very slow. It took a long time for the first course to come out-a charcuterie board (like half an hour) but then once the food started it came out within acceptable time frames (we ate "family style" which was 6 courses). But getting out of there took forever. They rarely asked if anyone wanted another drink, it took forever to get the bill and then once we had the bill it took 15-20 minutes for the waitress to come back with the machine. Excellent food, acceptable service but taking an extra half hour just to get out of there kind of spoiled it at the end of an excellent meal.

Best bday dinner ever! Every dish was delicious - I can’t get over the prawns - and their wine and cocktail list is excellent. The super nice servers geared us up with a high chair and gave us great recommendations. Plus, their reno is 💯. Can’t wait to come back!

Great place in Old Ottawa South. Cocktails are awesome (but a bit too much lemon juice), but fantastic wine list. Food comes in decent proportions. Gotta try their charcuterie/cheese board.

I went there for brunch and we all really liked our food. Friendly service and a nice little place. The sunshine skillet was a generous portion of very tasty vegetables but we were a bit disappointed that it didn't come with potatoes as the menu listed. Though it's hard to complain because it still tasted great.

We went for brunch and found the food was average and the prices high. We each had the SunshineSkillet which was almost entirely vegetables for $19. We could not find evidence of potatoes as per the menu and we got one egg, not two. Hollandaise sauce was very lightly applied. Our friend had the Full Belmont at $20 and she said it was average and had more mushrooms on her plate than anything else.

The whole experience was fine but none of us thought it was great. Disappointing because we had high expectations given the reviews.

The food took an inordinately long time, considering we were there for brunch. The reservation was for 1045, we were on time, ordered our meals before 11am, yet our food didn't arrive until well after 1130.

However, an otherwise pleasant experience!

This was our first time at the Belmont. Everyone loved it. My friends found the prices a bit expensive but I felt the prices were congruent with most trendier breakfast places. And I felt the food and atmosphere were worth it! Would love to be back. Thank you!

My colleague and I were blown away by our experience at the Belmont! Ambiance was warm and inviting, as were the staff. The mussels were sublime! In fact, everything we had was delicious. Was also pleaaantly surprised by the quality and selection of wine. My Syrah was an unexpectedly fine match for beet salad, mussels and chickpea trini. Would highly recommend!

I imagine because we went on Friday evening and it was packed that the noise level was off the scale.
However you should not have to yell across the table to converse. They really need to get some baffles in the ceiling and try to use other means to dampen the noise, customers are yelling on top of each other to be heard and its a shame because the food is typically excellent, with some misses when it gets busy.

Food was phenomenal and craft cocktails as well. Service attentive as well. Only complaint is that the staff had no idea what to do with my Opentable reward cheque. Opentable please contact them and explain the process so I can use it next time.
