North and Navy
Our menu is inspired by tradition and dictated by the quality and availability of ingredients. We play off the similarities between the climates of Eastern Ontario and Northeast Italy, and create our take on classic dishes made with seasonal game, seafood and vegetables. Plus, sometimes we’ll just add whatever we want.
The food is always absolutely delicious. It is always such a treat. I highly recommend.
We had such an amazing meal at North and Navy!! Service was impeccable, attentive and friendly. Stand outs were the sauce on the liver and onions!!! Holy, that we could drink! We have strongly recommended to friends and we will be back. We actually flew from NS on a little foodie tour and North and Navy was our first stop, and it set the bar !!
The food, as always, was excellent, especially the corn/pancetta risotto. I had the quail and polenta as my main, and I asked a question about the polenta to which I never received an answer, so I'll try again. The polenta did not taste like cornmeal to me; it tasted like it was made from the meal of another grain. Nothing wrong with that, just didn't taste like cornmeal. Could someone please inform me about the ingredients for your polenta?
Great meal, and very good service, otherwise.
Our server was exceptional and the food stellar.
We will come again
Food is innovative, but note the quantity is small.
There were several tasty highlights of our 3-course dinner, including wonderful homemade pastas (primi) and a stuffed quail (secondi). The seared tuna, while perfectly cooked, was one-note and needed a bit more acid and/or spice around it. The wine recommendation was perfect, and the negroni before that hit the spot. However, and we've noticed this based on this 2nd recent visit, that the front room sound level explodes when the room is full and one table is LOUD. Do people really need that much attention? Guess so. We still recommend this lovely place for stellar food and drink and attentive staff.
Top notch food and service!
Superbe and very personnal service seating at the bar.
Food is delicate and first quality. Amazing care and balance of flavors.
Excellent value considering the expertise and quality of the products.
To have a high quality experience, trying something different than the usual classic Italian dishes, this is a treasure in the heart of Ottawa
My husband and I went to N&N for our anniversary and were given a glass of champagne upon arrival. Our server was awesome, the food and drinks were incredible, and I especially loved the decor.
Amazing food , plating and service . One of the best restaurants I have ever been to in my life
Small portions and quite pricy, but overall very good quality a lovely atmosphere.
Intimate space, great service, good food and good wine. Loved the freshly made pasta and antipasta assortment. Looking forward to going there for cinq a septs for negronis that looked super interesting.
Love coming here every time! Well taken care if by Pascal, food is always excepcional. We even got to meet the Chef.
Will be back
We truly enjoyed the typical Italian atmosphere. We had a drink at the bar (back of the restaurant) and then went to our table. Service and attention to detail was flawless. Our host (she didn't tell us her name and we forgot to ask) was handling 7 or 8 tables without any issue and was able to explain each dish on the menu in great detail - and with a genuine smile.
Would go back anytime.
Wonderful food, beautiful decor and great service. We will definitely be back!
Awesome food was greatly
Food is very flavorful, inventive, and beautifully presented. Service is impeccable. Different rooms offer different settings, ambiance. Portions are on the small side. Prices are on the high side. Complimentary in-house bread was very good. Wine list has a lot of good Italian choices.
As always, North and Navy was extremely pleasing -- especially for our friends from the US
Love taking my fiends here to enjoy a favourite of our
Treated like royalty by staff - wonderfully paced meal for a special night out!
Who knew that liver and onions could be that good, and the ricotta with mint and peas purée was delightful
Belated Father’s Day.
Exceptional! Perhaps one of the best meals I’ve had in Ottawa in decades.
Good service that was timely and efficient combined with original tasting food that was well presented.
Not your run of the mill italian food. Overall worth the price. Quite noisy at peak times.
Fix the air conditioning. We found the restaurant quite warm. Also, although people were not yelling or speaking loudly we found there to be quite a bit of ambient noise.
The meal itself was excellent. We've been before and will go again.
Great experience start to finish. Knowledgeable staff and the food was fantastic.
Great service, food and ambience. Our favourite place in Ottawa.
Amazing flavours and welcoming space. Wonderful way to spend a Sunday evening. And really enjoy the team.
Lovely front window
Great food and service
Delicious food and wonderful presentation and service.
We love this restaurant! It’s the perfect mix of high-end and accessible cuisine - with the opportunity to try new and interesting foods with the comfort of north Italian cuisine. Special mention to Seb - a truly excellent server.
The reviews haven’t been as rave as in the first year or two. Not unusual. But for us on a Monday evening it was five stars in every category.
As always bar staff were attentive and receptive to special requests (no egg on my secondi).
Bartender came over just before the end of happy hour to inquire if we wanted anything before happy hour finished.
Food was (as always) excellent and flavourful.
Do not go on Sundays because it is a different menu that was on their website. The food on Sunday with some of the worst Italian food that I have ever had. Gary
We didn't really like the food all that much. It was Ok, but nothing to write home about.....
Excellent. We would highly recommend. The setting is lovely and private. Our waiter explained everything on the menu. I liked the limited menu. The variety would satisfy anyone. I would highly recommend North and Navy to anyone wanting a special dinner event
North and Navy was a fabulous surprise. The food was complex and earthy.
This was the first time that I tried this little place. It’s located in a charming old house and has an intimate atmosphere. The service was excellent and the food was very nicely prepared. It was delicious, and presented very creatively. My guest and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The only criticism I have is that it’s a tad overpriced.
Service was good technically but lacked genuine care
Food was well executed, a bit heavy on the butter
Wine list needs to be elevated
