It was very nice good service nice room and food was very good
Overall the food was good, the portions sizes were generous. The cocktails were ok and the smelts appetizer was ok. The staff was friendly and helpful.
We had excellent food and a very friendly waiter who catered to our specific requests. Will return for sure!
Love this restaurant. Food is fantastic. Never disappoints.
It was a lovely restaurant. Chill and quiet vibe. Quick and friendly service. The food was amazing! Desert was probably the highlight, aside from my date;)
First time at this restaurant. Will definitely be back. Best Veal Piccata I’ve ever had.
This was my first experience at Tosca's and I could not have been more satisfied. High class from beginning to end our experience left us with saying that we can not wait to return.
Great food, excellent staff. Patio had lots of space and wasn’t crowded.
We went there for my daughter birthday. Service was outstanding and of course food was super - we went with different kinds of pasta for each and everything was so delicious ! We will be back again.
The sitting and the staff are great. The food was decent for a mid range restaurant.
Food was pretty basic - nothing particularly spectacular about this place - it wasn’t bad, just wasn’t worth the price. Don’t think I’d come back
Made reservation and show up and restaurant is closed?? It looks.like hasn't beeen open for a long time. Why dis Open Table accept reservation on behalf of restaurant. Tried contacting no answer. Had to scramble for dinner. Not impresses with open table or restaurant. How was your dinner??
Food was good. Service was ok, he could of had bit of a personally to be in this business. the location is in the business section so its pretty quiet after work.
We totally enjoyed the evening and the experience. I recommend that anyone who goes to Tosca try the fried Calamari (phenomenal). The Tortelini Gorgonzola and the Risottop Pescatore are perfect.
First time there- very accommodating, had reservations available, very friendly service and our two pastas and bruschetta were delicious! Will be back to see how it is inside when Covid stops and opens things back up.
This has been the second time that my partner and I have visited Tosca exactly a year apart and the experience was just as memorable as the last. The service is the best in the city and the food is just as good. I left satisfied and longing to come back. Everyone here knows exactly how to make their guests feel special. This is by far the best restaurant in the city. 1000% recommend
Great food, lovely vibe, great serbice. High quality
Food and service were great! Will likely go there again.
Awesome food and service!
It was an excellent meal. Great service. Warm environment for a date night.
Saw the waiters once the whole night. Reserved well in advance yet got a table beside the entrance and waiter booth in the front corner of the restaurant. Never going again.
Food was great and the service great like usual
The ambiance was nice and welcoming but the food was just mediocre .
We booked this restaurant because it was highly rated but it did not “deliver”
The service was just ok.
Our server was nice but never came back to see if everything was ok or if we needed anything else .
First time visit but will definitely come back next time we're in town! 6 stars! **
Great food, very hot and delicious. Service was great, thank you.
Très belle ambiance, bonne cuisson, bon goût beau resto bref... superbe place à aller. Great food/ service with an honest price listing...one of the best resto in Ottawa!
Overall wonderful evening, the food and service was excellent. The only thing that I feel could be changed is the playlist. Being in such an elegant restaurant I would much rather hear smooth jazz type music instead of upbeat Justin Bieber singing at me lol.
We love going to Tosca any chance we get. They treat you like family. Cheers to everyone for a wonderful birthday dining experience.
Nice to see smelt on the menu, they were very good. Salmon as well was good, veal chop leaved a bit to be desired given the price. Waiter was attentive to the wine but think he was pushing the sale of another bottle, aside from that barely saw him.
We had a birthday dinner at this place but our server Gotti is too lazy to remake the new drinks because we order 2 ceaser drinks but he served those drinks without celery rim. I mentioned to my server but he refused to remake rather he brought celery on side plate that’s very disappointing . My wife ask him about my birthday for candles we ordered dessert but he didn’t provide any candle they just wrote on the plate which is can’t even read ... i will never go this place ... I thought we will get good service coz reserved the table and also this covid time they should make us good service and good food than we could come there in future....we are trying to help restaurant & service industry due covid 19 situation .. Food tasteless I ordered veal which is just came almost cold soggy no taste ... I asked server gotti what kind vegetable come with it he seems like don’t know... he answer me i think pepper cauliflower i don’t know exactly... they should be more professional... we go there to celebrate our birthday, anniversary so expect good food & good service, we go there to spend some money to have good night out , but server gotti seems like dont wanna make money his rushing us even we still have wine left he puts bill on the table & in 5 minutes after come with credit card machine to make us pay seems like we came to dinner this is hilarious....ok now i know about this place because our first night out for my birthday it’s horrible they will lose customer because this kind of unprofessional service... its my bad experience..
Outstanding service and quality of food, with great selection of wines. The Penne Fortunato was delicious, and struck the right balance between zesty and spicy. Very fresh and perfectly prepared. Very attentive staff. I've been a happy diner at Tosca for many years now and it is my preferred choice for Italian fare downtown.
Great food, good service. Only disappointment was that a number of the wines on the menu were not available
It was awesome! Great food and very nice service!
Very good, fast service and great ambiance!!!!!!!!
Really nice atmosphere with friendly service. Food was amazing and fairly priced. At first I was seated by the washrooms and the door to the kitchen so it was loud but I asked to move and they accommodated. Will definitely go again. Would recommend the veal with shrimp in the cognac and peppercorn sauce for sure.
The three of us went for a meal during Covid so we were cautious. We enjoyed our meals although the Lasagna could have been a bigger portion for the orice
This night, the Chef was clearly out of his mind. The food was horrible. They served us a "soup of the day", it's not ajoke, it tasted like a Lipton Soup Base. THe Main course was so-so too. That's strange, because this restaurant have a very good note on the web, but like I said, this night was a nightmare in the kitchen.
Bon repas , service excellent et sympathique malgré les restrictions COVID 😉
Location very quiet on weekends. Food quality needs to be higher for price point.
Service was great, food was delicious!
