    Mushroom toast is amazing. The breakfast menus is excellent. I would simply ask that they put less salt in the mushroom toast recipe.

    BelmontResponded on July 18, 2022Our sincere apologies for the slow service on Sunday brunch. You were not the only table to review on our Sunday service.

In terms of price, the world has doubled prices on everything so there's not a ton we can do there unfortunately Thanks so much info @belmontottawa . c*m Adrian

    We celebrated a family birthday and the experience was perfect. The staff were exxceptionally attentive and one even recalled that a member of our party was avegan and they proceeded to identify menu options when we were ordering (and the food we all ordered was creatiively prepared and delicious). This restaurant is a real gem in Old Ottawa South.

    First time and the food was very good but unfortunately the noise level was almost unbearable as we were sitting next to a large group that were very loud, so we had a difficult time to hear ourselves and our table of 5. The staff tried to move us outside but there were no tables available. The staff were very courteous. Adorable place but may be reluctant to return for fear of the same noise issues. Perhaps when there is going to be such a big party others with reservations should be told and perhaps be able to change their reservations. The party was about 10 people.

    BelmontResponded on July 6, 2022Thank you for your review and were so happy you enjoyed your food. Being a small space and very busy at brunch it can get quite noisy. As of yesterday we have decided not to take reservations larger than groups of 6 at brunch to help with the noise and enjoyment of others dining Thanks again and we hope to see you back in our space soon:) Adrian Owner/Operator

    Although I’ve loved Belmont in the past this experience unfortunately did not live up to the past ones. The asparagus was undercooked and the dessert arrived while a main course was still outstanding. When that dish (cauliflower) arrived it was not as good as when we’d tried it in take out. To “take care of it” the bill of over $100 was reduced by $4.70 which seemed a bit odd in the circumstances. Overall it was quite disappointing especially because last experiences were so awesome. That said the watermelon salad and mushroom toast was fantastic!

    This is definitely on my list of places to return to. The food was in my humble opinion, spectacular. While my gf and I disagreed on which dish was the best, we both agreed that they were fantastic. We started off with the Trini Doubles with shredded porc added. The accompanying hot sauce was so good that I purchased a bottle for home. This was followed by the Mushroom Toast, the Argentinian Pink Prawns, the Flat Iron Steak and the Lamb Meatballs.
