    Sterling demeure un bon restaurant de steak, mais on a trouvé ça cher, pour un service correct, un gros groupe qui fêtait à côté, et un choix limité de vin au verre et petites bouteilles. Je ne suis pas convaincu que ça vaut si cher. Avant sa fermeture, on allait souper au Baccarat pour le même prix.

    Service was excellent, food superb. All meals from the steaks to the chicken and the wonderful scallops and lobster tail were perfectly prepared. The only caveat was on arrival where we had requested a main floor table as 1 of our party had mobility issues and cannot do stairs. They rudely tried to force us upstairs and the person who greeted us, while trying to explain the request to the Maitre'D, was decidedly chastised. Eventually they recognized the reason for our request and insistence. All service was great from that point onwards.

    Première expérience a ce restaurant grace a un très beau cadeau de fête. Le service était parfait, le steak cuit a la perfection. Tout était très gouteau. Une sélection de vins impressionnante de très très cher a prix abordable pour monsieur tout le monde. Je vais certainement y retourner.

    You will be hard pressed to find a restaurant such as Sterling. From the impeccable service to the food, plentiful, and mouth watering. The decor, the ambience, and the cleanliness is unmatched. The wait staff are the best around and the experience is well worth the price.

    The wood fired grill at the entrance set the perfect tone for a steak house. Very tasteful and classy with a beautiful layout that afforded a measure of privacy. The food was beautifully displayed and cooked to perfection. What stood out most was the service. Our server was absolutely delightful. My wife and guest had a wonderful meal that set a warm comfortable tone for our entire evening. Thank you.

    La nourriture était vraiment très chère comparée à laa avaleur des produits dans l’assiette. Manque d’assaisonnement de base (sel et poivre) et manque de condiment pour les accompagnements (Mayo épicée par exemple). Le bruit environnant était très élevé, difficulté à s’entendre. Très bon service, à l’écoute de nos besoins.

    Lovely heritage building along the Gatineau river. Missing a bit of ambiance (candles on table, lighting is bright), table d'hôte reasonably priced, I had the muscles as an appetizer and found them to be ok not wowed, steak was done as requested. Desert came to quickly after eating we felt rushed even though the restaurant wasn't that busy.
