I've been to the Wellington Gastropub many times since they opened, usually 3-4 times per year. The menu changes daily, and you can check it out online before you go. They always have a seafood/fish, beef, chicken, vegetarian main, etc. I have a sous-vide steak there once that was incredible. Lunch is the cheaper option and is also delicious. I... More

While we've lunched here in the past last night was our first dinner experience at the Gastropub and it was a real pleasure. A very full house didn't detract from the attentiveness of the knowledgeable and friendly staff. We started with some wonderful home-made bread prepared with yeast from a local brewery - soft and tasty. A glass of Hinterland... More

Perhaps my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed by the food and the atmosphere. Service was good, but the place was a bit noisy. The menu was not extensive, but I guess I picked the wrong choice, as I was quite disappointed with the meal. I had also expected a wider beer assortment, as the place is also... More

It can be hard to get a reservation but for good reason. The staff were all AMAZING. Seriously my friend got up from the table and a staff member refolded her napkin while she was away. The wine list is above average for the area and the food, oh gosh the food. I consider myself to be a foodie. I'm... More

... with good food and service. The grilled halibut was cooked to perfection and unusually served with chickpeas. These were tasty but the serving was much too large and kind of marred the flavour of the halibut. The mushroom risotto was equally good and a good size portion. Service was friendly and efficient and although the restaurant was full, we... More

Excellent food, with large servings. Celebrated a friends engagement and the staff noted a congratulations on her dessert plate. Excellent alcohol options, but pricy in that department.

We have been frequenting this establishment since it opened 10 years ago. Although the decor is not fancy & the staff is casually dressed, you will not find better food in this city. All the staff are extremely personable & knowledgeable. You are warmly greeted on arrival & well taken care of once seated - but reserve early if you... More

Never disappoints,the menu changes daily with scallops,all soups and risotto among our favourites. The beef tartar is always a great choice for an appetizer when on the menu. Great atmosphere and service,this is a top 5 restaurant in Ottawa!
