Service was impeccable, as well as the food. Was there for a birthday dinner, and was treated to a birthday dessert which was so nice. It was very quiet (we were the only table in there) from 5pm-7pm which was a little awkward, so i'd recommend going for a later time. It was designed really well, we were comfortable at our table. Would go again for sure.
Everything was great.
Our steaks were not warm enough but the rest was great.
The service was amazing, great flexibility with food allergies, creative on how to present each course. Last but not least the food was excellent! Overall very nice experience and will go back for sure.
The food and service were both amazing. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Premium pricing but it delivers on quality and experience
2nd time here took my parents for their 50th. The food was good, I love that all plates showed up to the table at the same time. Great service as well.
Visite 3 jours à Ottawa avons décider de découvrir ce restaurant qui semblait très chaleureux de l’extérieur mais le service nous a bien refroidis très faible comme service
Wonderful Easter Brunch great cheese truffle Brie and great restaurant
Excellent meal with ample time to get to the theatre. The waitress (Hannah) was well versed on everything from wine pairing to ingredients in the meal. She was terrific.
I was a little surprised I didn't notice a poultry option on the menu, but I had the cod and it was outstanding. My husband had the lamb, and he was very impressed
Repas entre amoureux
Food was sophisticated but poorly plated. Some parts were overlooked temperatures were all different on the ingredients on the plate. Poor quality control in a very nice restaurant!!
The food and ambiance, simply sensational! Classy, attentive and knowledgeable staff
Beautiful evening and fantastic food
I do not have one complaint. From the minute my friend and I walked through the door everything was spot on.
Had a great meal meeting up with old friends. Restaurant has a great ambience.
Duck Duo, crab cakes and Caesar salad were fantastic. Cozy and classy atmosphere. Loved it!
We had a fabulous server. The food was excellent. Wine is very good if a little overpriced.
Our second time at Eighteen. The ambiance is warm and elegant, the food superb, and the service is excellent -- professional but friendly, and ...happy!
Enjoyed my meal with my daughter. The food was over-priced, but delicious. Service was attentive and very pleasant.
My family enjoyed another great evening at 18. The food is superb. We are all critical diners and we all found our dishes exceptional. The atmosphere is classy without being stuffy. The staff is all so professional, knowledgable and fun. I had the Ling Cod which was pure heaven. If you want a memorable and relaxing evening, this is a great place to go.
Our night at 18 was very pleasant. The service was exceptional, prompt and friendly. The food was great! The ingredient quality explains the price which is fair. Would recommend it 100%.
We are a somewhat infrequent but long standing customer who besides the food and service, love the fact that we can talk to each other without having to overcome the often noisy environments of many restaurants
Was looking to go out for somewhere to go for a special dinner and have a great meal, and I found it.
Was craving a steak so found this restaurant with some good reviews so gave it a try.
It has nice decor and an interesting layout. It has a feel that you know you're at a nice place but you can just chill and not have to be 'on' at a really fancy place. I was relaxed and liked being there.
I got the Beef Tenderloin and was not disappointed one bit. A great cut of meat cooked exactly how I like it along with a real nice demiglaze I believe? (I cook a great steak myself but this was way better than mine! haha) This was with the mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes. It was all really good. Everything had a nice balanced flavour and was a very enjoyable meal. Also perfect portions too.
I'll come back here for sure.
Always have a great time at E18hteen, regardless of the function. Incredible food, excellent service, lovely surroundings.
It was excellent, and the service, impeccable. I go to Ottawa every year, and I make it a point to go back because we are never disappointed. Service is really top notch!!!!!
Beautiful restaurant and the service is good but the food is nothing remarkable for the price. Crab cakes are fishy and the ling cod is boring. The steak was good but not exceptional.
Fête à mon amie
Good food and good service. Meal was enjoyable. Thanks
We went for my birthday after researching for a 5 star meal. I was not let down on any level. The staff was spot on with ....well, everything. It was special and 5 stars from start to finish.
We had the Duo Duck and the Duo Lamb. Fantastic. My wife is not a lamb lover and she loved the meal. Yes, that good.
We'll go again
The food was amazing and the staff went out of their way to ensure it was a beautiful night for us , always a stellar experience
For the price of the meal, Eighteen did not meet my expectations.
I took my wife to Eighteen for Valentine's Day. It was a Tableau Menu and we optioned for the wine pairing.
The wine pairing was to include a glass of sparkling wine to start our night, we never received our glass of wine.
My wife ordered Foie gras for her Starter. When she received it the food was frozen.
The rest of the dinner went very well but was overall disappointed with my experience.
The restaurant is over rated. Prices are too high and the food does not follow. Wines are also very expensive.
Service impeccable, de loin un des meilleurs de la région sinon du pays !!!
Absolutely loved our evening here. Celebrated our wedding anniversary. The service was fabulous, the property is beautiful and the food was delicious. The oysters were amazing. My only negative would be that the main course could have been hotter -- we both had steak. Otherwise the flavours, presentation and creativity were perfect. Thank you.
We went to eighteen for the first time on a Saturday night. The ambience is great, and all the food is very expensive, which is fine as long as you get the rewarding feeling of a fine dining experience. The server seemed frazzled most of the night, he took a long time to come take our order after we had closed our menus, and then once we ordered, my date's first meal choice was sold out. The food was very good, but we were disappointed that the server seemed too busy to come around to fill our wine glasses from the very expensive bottle of wine we ordered, so we had to pour ourselves...These are just a couple of things that I don't expect to happen when going out for a 300$ dinner for two in this city...
It is a rare occasion indeed for our family of 5 to find a restaurant that manages to completely satisfy everyone's expectations for every course of a three course meal. Over the weekend Eighteen managed to do that and more. The crabcakes, carpacio, Caesar and beetroot salads and a steak tartare starter done to perfection with AAA beef (chopped - not minced) raised everybodies expectations and the superb cod, lobster, duck, lamb and pasta maincourses finaly just proved the point that Eighteen is in a class of its own.
The elegance of the setting in addition to the neatly dressed, attentive and courteous server at our table rounded off the picture of fine dining done right. We will definetly be back soon.
High expectations that we not met. Food was not great - had to send steak back for being undercooked. Crab cakes were bland.....very pricey for not great food.
We had a marvellous dinner experience. The food and service were perfect. It's our favourite restaurant in Ottawa. Cant wait to go back.
A high quality restaurant, with a lovely atmosphere. menu selection and choices were a bit heavy, and weak on the vegetarian side of things. Complementary appetizer was a nice touch.
Didn't like the place we were seatead just beside the door & the rack of coats it was cold , at the price that we paid it was not a good location should not be a dining table in that space good only to hang your coats. My husband plate was good it was the lamb but I took the lobster it was so tiny and the taste was so plain , it's much better at red lobster and the plate is full & half the price. Your place is too much expensive for what it's worth!
I've planned a surprise date for my husband, we were there for 3:30 and totally enjoy our night! Staff was gentle and welcoming, wine waiter was amazing and new is product. Food was very good and plates were special! Nice ambiance, good music and good vibes, nice cocktails, The look of the restaurant is warm and original. I totally recommended it!
