Food-wise, quite a different experience from our first visit. We opted for the 5 course tasting menu and 3 of them were fair at best. Those dishes were overly contrived and not very good - e.g., the rock salt added to two of them was too much. We like fois gras, but it was presented as a thick layer on a biscuit that made it unpleasantly heavy. And while the dessert cake was good, the fois gras ice cream was simply over the top and didn't pair well with the cake. It's as if the chef was thinking the more fois gras the better, which unfortunately achieved the opposite effect. Overall it left us with the impression of an unrefined dinner.
I celebrated my birthday, it was the best decision. Delicious food and wine, the waiter very friendly and attentive.
Our group was for 4 ppl last night and all of us thought that the food was Fantastic, the staff was very friendly, and the overall restaurant appearance was beautiful!! The fireplace is so grand, we were wowed!! I had steak and it was the best I’ve had in years, I Highly recommended the tenderloin. Our server overheard that my fiancé and I are recently engaged so they brought complimentary cake to the take to celebrate! It was a really amazing meal experience and we will definitely be back!!
Always a great place for dining. The food is excellent and the service, friendly and outstanding!
The atmosphere, service and food were good. During the Christmas holidays, I wish there was a little more Christmas atmosphere.
We had a really fantastic experience. The building is so beautiful, and the food and wine was excellent.
I found the portions to be on the small side for mains, but other than that a truly wonderful restaurant.
Great food, this brunch was definitelt the best value for the money, and good amount of food too! We rolled out of there we were so full!
Excellent food and service, was expecting smaller portions for the advertised price set menu but in the end we left absolutely stuffed and very happy.
Great place for gatherings and small events. Food is [chef kiss]
It was amazing. Definitely going back.
An experience to repeat, good food, good wine nice calm atmosphere
Amazing food, great service. I can't wait to go back!
Service was horrible and the atmosphere was not great
You will never be disappointed by going to E18hteen : impeccable service, outstanding food and an ambiance that makes you feel like you're worth a milion bucks!
Absolutely amazingly wonderful on all accounts! Thank you
If you want to enjoy every aspect of fine dining in a historic building in the heart of the capital this place is for you!
The best restaurant in Ottawa! I really loved the food.
The food was great. But that’s where it ends. Our server had that “I am a little too cool for you” thing going on, reminiscent of 20 years ago. So unnecessary today. They sat us by an ice cold windows and rock wall and put a cheap space heater at our feet. it’s November. In November. Of course it’s gonna be cold. Do something permanent about it instead of making people suffer. The decor? Or should I saw decors, because there’s like five different themes battling it out in there, much to our dismay. Over all, it felt like an expensive throwback.
Pricey, but outstanding service and food. Would consider it in the top 3 restaurants in Ottawa.
Came to this restaurant for two reasons, three minutes walk from my hotel and it's on the 11th spot recommended by Tripadvisor. I really like the interior design! From hostess to server to busboy were all very friendly and professional. Food was good but not exceptional, price was a little on the high side, but tell me what is not these days? Over all I would give 4 stars out of 5
Awesome service <3 , special night , Zach who take care of us has been amazing
We had the Chef’s Tasting Menu with wine pairing and it was delicious! Excellent service from our server/host and other wait staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Always interesting food. Expensive, but good value.
Everything was first rate - with the small exception of the octopus starter, which was a bit too tough for my liking.
The steak and staff was superb, and made up for the starter. My advice would be to choose something different. Would go back for a special occasion.
I have to add that unfortunately the wine prices are WAY out of line. The Stags Leap Cab is $100 at other restaurants - and is $165 at e18teen. No way to justify this level of robbery.
Traditional cooking done with great care and attention to details. Service impeccable and welcoming. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked, rosé as we say in french. Don’t miss it.
We went there for our 16 years anniversary and completely enjoyed the experience. The food was fantastic.
Service was A1 and steak …Just perfect
Little expensive… but no regret!!!!
Good good (The black cod could havé been better); great service.
It was an amazing dinner. The servce was awsome and i would recommend it to all my friends and family. My birthday dinner was speachlessly good
The service was impeccable everyone was so nice. The food was wonderful. We will definitely be back.
Arrived at 10, which was too late for the tasting menu - so we asked the chef to make something s/he wanted to, without any restrictions. We were served two delicious courses (fois gras, duck) that were marvelously paired, along with a final cheese platter. We loved the staff's flexibility; Noemi, our waitress, was very personable and engaging.
Overall a wonderful experience, and we'll definitely return.
Awesome service, great wine and food
Great food. We went for the tasting menu with wine pairing and all was good.
Quality of dishes, plate presentation, service (Noemi, very special) and ambiance was perfect, in spite the room being large and on several levels, historic stone building with very classy, chic, "of today modern" decor, the feeling was intimate.
Last but not least, if you are a tourist (like we), some of the best hotels in town, as well as the National Gallery are but a short walking distance.
Great restaurant great food portion was perfect size
Great!! Good service, good atmosphere, good food, respectful of Covid precautions.
Gorgeous place, food was excellent and beautifully presented. The service was first class.
Had the half seafood tower to start. Wife had the striploin and I had the tenderloin for the main. Everything was cooked and presented to perfection. The service was amazing, table was cleared quickly after each course and servers were always attentive to when drinks or top ups were required. Ottawa’s number 1 restaurant by far.
This is a dining experience every one should enjoy
Beautiful environment, friendly, gracious staff, amazing food- I will dine here again
