My wife and I have been to the Sterling on 4 previous occasions and couldn’t stop raving about the place to friends and coworkers for the exceptional service , food and ambience ..
On this occasion we were greatly displeased with the service and overall experience .
We were placed in a brightly lit room and then surrounded by other people that we had to listen to talk loudly and rudely . When we arrived there was ample seating to seat us in a more enjoyable setting for our special occasion .
We fully expect to pay for quality food and service and this time we received neither .
We are very disappointed and probably won’t be back !!
Best. Steak. In. Ottawa.
And of course the staff was absolutely wonderful, offering tours of the place to anyone who is eating there for the first time.
Loved everything about it.
Would absolutely recommend.
Thanks for having us!
Excellent food and service, will definitely return.
Nourriture triste et sans goût; surfaite.
Services sans attention que ce type de resto exige. Le serveur m’éclaboussait de vin a chaque fois qu’il remplissait les verres!!
Undisputedly the best customer service in the Ottawa/Gatineau region by far!
J'ai adoré le service et l'attention apporter pour la fête de mon conjoint. Malheureusement, la seule chose que j'ai aimé dans mon assiette étais le filet mignon. Les légumes n'avais aucun goût et la patate au four était très sec. Je trouve également que même si la restaurant était vide on était coller avec d'autre client quand nous aurions voulu et pu être assis beaucoup plus en privé.
Nous étions probablement à la pire table du restaurant. Il y avait une petite table de service à côté de nous et nous étions déranger à tout les 10minutes. De plus le serveur à eau ne s'exusait même pas quand il passait la carafe à eau devant notre face au lieu de se mettre à côté de chacun. La seule façon que je retournerai à ce restaurant est d'avoir une meilleure table et certainement un gros rabais. Notre serveur ne sait pas présenté et il est flagrant qu'il y a des services préféreciel.
Beef was cooked perfectly although everything was pretty salty for our taste. Expensive for what you get...the keg's food is just as good for less money. Overall good for a special occasion, but not regular visits.
It has been a number of years since we'd been to Stirling and felt it's slipped. The service was great but the food was not nearly as good as we'd remembered. My steak was underdone and my guest's was a little grisly. My Caesar was boring with no interesting garnish and absolutely no punch. There was sediment in our wine. All in all, it was a disappointing dinner. If not for preparing the steaks over maple wood, there would be no incentive to go back at all.
Exceptional service and super delicious food! Very awesome staff!
We go there as much as we can for every occasions
Marc, the server was awesome. The ambiance is great. The food is very good. The ceasar salad is better than other restaurant. The steack was great.
This was a great experience. My wife and I had wonderful evening on our wedding anniversary.
However, we found that the portions on the table d’hote were enough for two people.and much to much.
Next time i would just order an entree on the a la carte menu and share a starter and dessert
Great food, staff and ambience. A little more menu content might be a good idea.
This is our second visit to Sterling and had another fabulous meal. We had the table d'hôte and it did not disappoint. We will most definitely return.
Une visite au Sterling est toujours une expérience unique, mais avoir l'occasion d'y passer le réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre est une expérience hors du commun.
De l'accueil jusqu'au vestiaire du départ, tout a été féérique.
Le Sterling n'est pas qu'une adresse parmi d'autres; c'est une destination en soi.
Great quality food and great service. Our night was perfect.
The service was excellant. Best filet mignon I have had in years. Quality of the food never disappoints.
Great food, service, an atmosphere! We loved the live music. They brought a small dessert with a candle on it for the birthday we had. Such a nice experience. Will definitely go back. Highly recommended.
Environnement relaxe, les steaks sont excellents et la liste des vins impressionnante
Everything was amazing!! My son really enjoyed it too! Thank you for amazing dinner! The steaks are done really well!
It was perfect, as usual. I asked for a specific table to be reserved and they did! I always enjoy my time there and I’m eager to return!
Everything was perfect! Excellent service, excellent food and the live music was wonderful!
I strongly recommend this restaurant! You will love it! Thank you for a wonderful evening!
We celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful time. After dinner Ahmed took us for a personal tour of the restaurant including their amazing wine cellar. Thank you for making our 27th anniversary truly memorable.
Great food. The soup was excellent.
Service was great. It was our first time & it won't be our last.
A bit pricey.
First off, we love Sterling. My husband loves their steak tartar and we wanted to go somewhere special for our third wedding anniversary tonight. We booked a month and a half in advance and had been excited and looking forward to a classy dinner.
We were seated at a table in the middle of a big Christmas party. There were tables full of gifts, everyone was standing, milling around, and being incredibly loud. (As they should, they were having a party.) It was unbearably loud and uncomfortable, so we requested to be moved, but there were no other tables for two. We were simply told that “It’s Christmas”. Having to literally shout across the table to each other and having people bumping into our chairs was not the atmosphere we signed up for, so we left.
Sterling made no attempt to rectify the situation and they ruined what had been until that point a wonderful anniversary. We tried two other restaurants, but given the time on a Friday night, both were full. So we ended up at home ordering Chinese, having egg rolls and resentment for our anniversary dinner.
Delicious meal with great service. Best steaks we've had in a long time. Impressive wine menu.
I loved my experience... I strongly recommend it... I will surely go there in the future...
My partner and I went there to celebrate our anniversary and ordered the table d’hote, soup, appetizer, main and desert for a fantastic price and the portions were generous. The food was incredible and the service was perfect. Highly recommended.
We had an excellent experience at Sterling. Amazing food and ambiance, with excellent service as well. Highly recommend it.
Great quality food with good service and wonderful restaurant ambiance.
