The food was great. We really enjoyed our appetizers and main course. Service was excellent and loved that we weren't rushed. Sat and enjoyed 3 hours of drinks and delicious food. The only complaint was it was really loud, a little too loud.

Our filet mignon was not good, went for boyfriend’s birthday and had a surprise cake for him, and the waiter ruined the surprise by going to my boyfriend and telling him they cannot put candles on the cake because of COVID restrictions, when he should have asked me. He ruined the surprise and it upset me, as I had called well in advance about this. We also asked for our food to go, but they never brought it back, however they took it off our bill and that part was appreciated.

My husband had fish, he never finished the food as it was making him sick, in fact he was sick while at the restaurant and after we left. It ruined what would have been a lovely experience.

This place never disappoints! As everywhere is coming back to “normal” after COVID, the menu here is still a little reserved.
Food was fantastic with exceptional service!
Will be back for sure.

We had our anniversary dinner there and everything was perfect. Wonderful service, the food was incredible, and the surprise anniversary truffles were the perfect way to end the dinner. 5 stars to all.

We attended for my dad’s birthday. The venue was chic and well appointed, and we overall had an excellent time. I only have to deduct a star because my dad had some gastrointestinal distress right after eating. Everything on the menu tasted delicious and was elegantly presented, the staff were extremely attentive and pleasant to work with, and in general I’d still recommend the venue to anyone looking for good seafood/surf and turf.

The service was impeccable despite the server having many tables. The food was tasty although the greens with the Lobster Cobb salad were limp and the lobster soggy. While the Sauteed Prawns and Scallops dish was excellent, rice would be a welcome addition as a side. The Coconut cream pie was good, but a cake option on the dessert menu would have been welcome

Hands down, the best service I have EVER received at a restaurant. The food of course was incredible, but the service was astoundingly amazing.

Our waiter was Kian, and his attention to detail and etiquette were second to none. He made us feel welcome and showed the upmost respect. Yumi also made sure our visit was comfortable and welcoming.

I cannot wait for our next visit!

The ambiance, food presentation and attention to detail were phenomenal. The professional and supreme service from the moment we walked in continued through dinner and dessert. The food was better than anywhere. Trevor, our server, was fabulous. He’s the perfect example of a professional server.

We had an amazing time! We ordered the beef tartare and beet salad for apps. (They were both delish). For our mains, we ordered the salmon and the halibut. Both great choices and so filling. On the side we ordered the salt and vinegar fries (you have you to order them). We ordered a bottle of white chotard, great pairing with the fish. Our waiter naomi was outstanding and made sure we were always ok. I also have a dairy allergy and they were very good with changing up dishes and making sure that there was no dairy contamination in them. We 100% recommend going to this place for dinner or a special occasion. We would go back.

Menu was bland. Presentation was non existent. Food was fine. Waiter was very good. Beef tartare appetizer was enjoyable. My choice of of an Italian red was good. Fingerling potatoes were cold and unimpressive.
Overall experience? Slightly above zero. David

Just disappointed that there was items online that was not included in the menu , like the soups.
We had decided our menu online but then we had to make other decisions because of that.

My wide and I were visiting Ottawa from Novo Scotia and really lucked in with this restaurant. The in-bone ribeye steak is the best I have ever had...and that includes Quebec and Toronto, Buenos Aires and Mexico, and New York and many cities in europe.
My wife, who is a bit snobbish when it come to food, had atlantic halibut with chimicurri sauce that she says was wonderful, 'out of this world'. And the service was first class. All together, an outstanding experience.

Un accueil très avenant. Ambiance lounge. Qualité inégale dans les saveurs. Un crab cake qui manque de piquant mais très bonne sauce. Le meilleur tartare de bœuf goût depuis très longtemps. Salade César correcte. Pétoncles et crevettes sautées qui manquent cruellement de saveurs. Excellent dessert. Bonne carte des vins mais plusieurs à des prix assez élevés. La qualité du service est irréprochable.

All of the staff were great but Trevor warrants a particular shout out. Attentive and helpful without overbearing. A great balance. Food was amazing. Calamari & shrimp appetizers. Lobster tail, filet, hamburger (yes, hamburger) and short rib entrees. Broccoli and mushroom sides. We doubled up on the broccoli and it was the first dish gone - yes, it was amazing. The short ribs get a special shout out (again). While we were filled after entrees we did a single order of coconut creme pie for the table with four forks - outstanding - a must do at Shore Club.
