Service was unbelievably slow on an evening when there were many open tables and a full wait staff. Other tables received drinks before our table despite arriving after us. The waiter completely disappeared for long stretches and another server had to take drink orders etc. server was complaining about patrons at another table in front of us. Not a premium evening but charging premium prices. Not impressed with my first visit.

One of the best in the region! If you can get on the patio when the weather is good it's hard to beat. Tasting menu is always amazing.

I found my experience pretty good except for the wine that was on their menu at 100$ for a 2014 vintage...they brought us a 2017 and until I mentioned it to them they said they forgot to change the menu but after complaining then decided to discount it for me, slightly deceitful but extremely friendly staff all the way..Only other problem that was not mine but the table beside us is they were told they ran out of seafood...really??? beautifully decorated restaurant and the steaks were delicious

Had a wonderful birthday dinner with my wife during our trip to Ottawa. Excellent food and superb service. They even brought me a special birthday dessert, which was an unexpected delightful gesture. The server also threw in an extra bottle of sparkling water free of charge. Great experience overall!

Great restaurant! It holds a special place in our heats . That’s where we had dinner the night of our wedding. For our 5 years anniversary we wanted to come back to the same place, and it didn’t disappoint!

We had a great experience once again, thank you !

Beautiful restaurant with great ambiance. The food was good, but could have been better considering the cost. Our pasta was a bit cold, and the duck was a bit tough.
We will try again in the future!

Excellent food overall. The lobster pasta however was disappointing. There were missing ingredients and the lobster was tough. The 3 meat dishes all exceeded expectations in terms of taste but they could have been hotter when arriving at the table. Good service but some wait-staff need to stop using "no problem" and simply say "you are welcome" when thanked. When did "no problem" become an answer to everything? Most staff did not cross over guests when serving but some did when the table we were at was easily accessible from all sides -- but one waiter took the lazy route and crossed over guests. An excellent restaurant but quite pricey and they need to work on delivering for the price paid.

Had an amazing dinner on the patio as we are still in stage 2. Service was great. Food was delicious. We had burrata salad, grilled octopus, cod and pasta primavera (2 apps and 2 entrees) and they were all really good. Also had gelato trio for dessert which was a very nice finish. Highly recommend and I will totally go again.

Maybe they changed the chef but the taste and products makes you feel the difference if you are a common customer maybe other options are tasty but the ones I got were not !
Great Team and lovely crew in the kitchen will continue to support them

This is a must try restaurant. Food, service & location are 2nd to none. Only negative was the piston heads who roar through the area revving their cars which is no fault of the restaurant. Highly recommend Eighteen.

The food was delicious. The prices were expensive however. $26 for a glass of wine? If you are going to charge those kind of prices, your servers need to be better dressed. Very unprofessional to see tummys hanging out when servers bend over. Plus we don't need to see the brand of underwear they are wearing that day. If you are going to be a high end restaurant, your servers should dress accordingly. Our server was excellent. But a few others dressed like they just got out of bed.

Food was great! Especially the octopus and seafood platter. The steak portion was smaller then expected for the price. We were kind of rushed at the end but it wasn't their fault as it was 10pm, although the night before another restaurant let us stay way past. The waiter heard it was my birthday and brought me a dessert which was very nice! Overall recommended!

We kept getting interrupted every 2 minutes by 3 different staff members. We told our main server we would call him over when we needed something because it was making our experience really crappy. He then made excuses saying he needed to take away our plates and whatever. They did bring a delicious dessert to apologize for free which we appreciated but will never go back. Half tower was bland af for 85$.
