I always reserve this restaurant for special occasions as it never disappoints. With the lack of good steak houses in our city, we have been eating steaks at home. Discovering this wonderful establishments gives us an additional dining option and a fun night out. STERLING is always consistent and offers impeccable service. :)

This beautiful restaurant was a fantastic location for our small wedding ceremony and intimate dinner in a private dining room overlooking the Gatineau River. Staff such as Pascal went out of their way to meet and exceed our needs. Our four course meal that we selected for our guests was also excellent.

Waite staff are phenomenal, very attentive, has a very relaxing atmosphere. We were a group of four, each ordering steak and it was prepared perfectly. Every restaurant has its own guideline for rare, medium rare…, we described our individual preferences and their chief delivered. Very, very impressed with everything. Will definitely revisit this steakhouse when in the Ottawa area again.... More

We had a great meal. The steaks were some of the best that we have had. Our server must have been new because there were a lot of rookie mistakes. The manager, possibly owner, obviously knew and stepped in a couple of times and made our experience great. He also helped with the wine and gave us some great selections... More

My Wife and I travelled to Gatineau from Trenton Ontario August 2016. We searched for the Best steakhouses in the area, let me tell you tripadvisor ratings were right and we found out why! We made reservations and asked to be seated on the deck outside. When we arrived we were greeted by the General Manager at the door, he... More

This is a typical American style steak house. The steaks are not the best quality. The prices are average. The service is good. Is it better than any other steak house? Not really. Would I recommend it over another one: not really. There is really no WOW factor.

My wife and I have been at the Sterling restaurant many times now, and we can honestly say this is simply the best steakhouse in the Ottawa/Gatineau area! First of all, we are always very well received by their staff, who are all very friendly and personable. Special mention must go out to Maitre d'hotel Ahmed B., who is also... More

We went to this restaurant last week with friends who had spoken highly of the food and ambience..Right they were. The ladies had the petit filet mignon which came to them perfectly cooked to order and tender beyond words. My friend Michel ordered the 20 oz. "Papa's Cut", a perfectly marbled rib eye which he demolished. I chose the small... More
