LIFT Restaurant & Lounge
Steak was unreal, rib eye was moist and the sides that came with it nearly trumpt the steak... Phenomenal mains.
After making the reservation we get to the restaurant and no table available. Manager Gabriel said it was an oversight on his part. Finally get a lounge table! For diner!. Order a rhum & coke in tall glass. Comes in small glass with so much ice and a lemon!. Ask to get fix Receive a tall glass but with 3\4 fill with ice. Its was a joke. Lime and not lemon is what you put on such drink. This restaurant is part of the Delta hotel. they should mention this as approx 50 persons showed up for a drink!.
J’adore Luc! Il nous donne toujours un excellent service. Merci;)
Service was a little slow for main.
Shout out to Melanie our Server who made our special occasion wonderful - thank you!
Hadn’t been to Lyft in over a year and found the beer choice improved. Menu is long on appy choices that were very good; didn’t experience the meal menu but looks good too. The ambiance is ‘glass & brass’. Enjoyed our Friday end of week visit
Beer was flat. Food was also flat, I had the fish and chips, and the fish batter was basically soggy. The tartar sauce could have been better, it was more mayo than I like, but there was lots of it.
I wish that Lift's website made it very clear that the restaurant was part of the Delta hotel, had I known I wouldn't have gone there for dinner (it's possible that this info was laid out clearly and I missed this detail).
Anyway, $50 is too much for flat beer and soggy fish.
Food was decent, however terrible overall service. Took over an hour for entrees to arrive. Desert also took over 20 minutes to arrive. All for a party of 5 people. Would not recommend for a business meeting or to take a client.
I made the reservation 2 weeks in advance and they didn't check their ressevation list online so they refused to give me a table
The service was excellent and the food was delicious! The ambiance was not quick like the romantic dinning setting I was hoping for. I felt like I was sitting outside of the restaurant in the hallway of the hotel. I would recommend this restaurant for a dinner with family or friends but not for a date night.
Dependable for good food and excellent service.
The menu on open table was not the same as in restaurant.
They did not carry popular liquors for an Aperol Spritz.
No pleased about the menu as all items we looked at were not available.
I am speechless! Everything was beyond amazing!!! Thank you for making my birthday dinner unforgettable. I recommend 100%.
The food was excellent. We each had steak, one medium rare and one medium, and they were done exactly as ordered. Our server, Melissa, was perfect - attentive without being intrusive, and appeared to be genuinely happy. We lingered a bit and did not feel any pressure to leave before we we were ready. Overall a great evening!
Nice and chill place for a quick bite on weekdays. Pasta and fish n chips were both delicious.
Food was greatttt and server did a very good jobbbb
Good service and food
We went for a family lunch. Great ambient and service. Food quality/price ratio also good.
Good food and good service. A bit noisy because we were seated close to the bar, but otherwise everything was fine.
We had a great time at Lift it's my second visit! I took a flat bread pizza, it was very good but slightly under cooked - very ok but would have been nice to have the cheese a little past the just melted stage! Otherwise everything was delicious and the service was amazing!
Chef very accommodating to allergies, friendly service
We were a bit surprised as we walked up to the address showing on our map that this restaurant was in the Delta hotel - there wasn't a clear indication of that on the restaurant's website, and I didn't notice anything about it here on OpenTable. I've learned from this not to judge a book by its cover! Lift restaurant was so cute and the decor is fun and modern. The food was absolutely delicious, and there were options for any type of dietary restriction. We were very impressed with the menu and food all around. The drinks were superb - we had Caesars, a raspberry mojito and an amaretto sour - all expertly mixed. Our server was incredible - we would think about ordering another drink, and literally 10 seconds later he was there asking if we needed refills or anything else at the table. His attention to us was very appreciated. Overall, we were very pleasantly surprised with this restaurant, and will never hesitate to try out a Delta hotel restaurant again!
Came here for a group dinner (4 couples). The service was great. The food was amazing. Coming into the restaurant, you'd think that it was really small bu it isn't. Restaurants like these should be considered more often then the regular spot everyone goes to. If you love food and you love to try out new places, I would recommend trying this place out. Great place for a quiet casual drink at the bar also.
Après on est allé boire des shots dans le bar d’en face. Pure soirée. 10/10 IGN
Everything about Lift was okay. There was absolutely nothing wrong and absolutely nothing special. A very neutral experience.
Nice restaurant and good staff. I was at a table of seven and for the most part the food was great but it had some inconsistencies. There was one plate of chicken that was over cooked and the asparagus was very salty but another plate of chicken was cooked well and not over salted. The same issue occurred between two plates of the teriyaki salmon. The meals were still enjoyable and I would recommend Lift to others.
After driving all day from Philadelphia and having an extremely difficult time getting to the hotel due to all the construction in that area we were too exhausted to go out of the hotel for dinner so we decided to eat at Lift - it was certainly more than adequate, but we would have preferred to try one of the many highly rated restaurants in Ottawa - Lift was fine in a pinch and very convenient.
Great menu. Wonderful service. A nice oasis downtown.
Elevated food cooked to absolute perfection! Menu was simple and yet very impressive and was what drew me to the restaurant. It definitely exceeded my expectations and I will go back in a heartbeat. Atmosphere was also very beautiful!
I found that my drink was overpriced but the salad niçoise was delicious and worth every penny.
It wasn't clear to us from the description available about this restaurant that it was located within the Delta Hotel. The restaurant was fairly typical of what you might find in a mid-range hotel - the food was not particularly creative or particularly tasty and it was overpriced for what it was. The onion soup was full of bread with very few onions and little cheese. The seafood chowder was just okay in terms of taste. The cobb salad was okay as well, but not great. The flatbread tasted like it was made from frozen. Service at the restaurant was actually quite good. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this place.
Waitress got my order wrong, included bacon after I specifically told her no bacon. The food was lackluster, my pasta was overcooked and the sauce tasted like flour. My coworkers' french fries were excellent though.
The restaurant was over half empty but everyone was seated clustered closely together in a tiny area. Absolutely no privacy was provided, which is not ideal for business lunches.
Overall, just did not meet my expectations.
My husband, son and I enjoyed a very good dinner in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. I would come again.
We went for brunch for Mother’s Day. There was no brunch contrary to the website information. A moment of disappointment but we decided to stay anyways for lunch. Our waiter Luc saved the day bringing us a nice supply of complimentary champagne. The lunch was very good. Mom’s were given a cupcake in a gift bag at the end. I really appreciated the service and extra effort! Thanks Luc!
A very nice spacious restaurant with delicious food. The prices are little more expensive than comparable nearby restaurants.
Lift is one of our go-to neighbourhood restaurants. We all enjoyed our meals. Nice trendy modern atmosphere. Awesome cocktails! One of the best options on west side of downtown Ottawa.
Very upscale setup , cozy and quiet . Excellent food and presentation
Good food and value for money. nice atmosphere. fish and chips was excellent.
Poor service; servers are rude and acted improperly with us. They were impolite despite the restuarant being empty.
Food was not good at all. Went there for lunch, ordered a ceasar salad with grilled chicken. Salad was ordinary ( mayo kind of dressing) and the chicken was actually a whole breast , but grilled previously and just served cold and sliced on plate. I ended up not eating the salad but took the chicken breast home and reheated it, and ate it . At this point it was interesting.
