Ottawa, ON

Restaurant Eighteen

A gorgeous restaurant in the heart of Ottawa, situated in the Market near Sussex Drive. I visited this restaurant with 3 other friends. The food there was great though a little on the expensive side but overall , the food was exceptional and steaks and lamb racks were cooked just right. Service is generally great however, I do have to say the food does come out a bit slow, it took about 30 minutes for the appetizer to come out and the bread served was plain and cold. I was definitely expecting warm Focaccia or something similar to that. Overall , friends commented that the steak was just right and the Duo of Lamb I had was amazing.

Be warned that this restaurant is quite expensive… an appetizer, entree and wine pairing came to about $90 per person. For $90 I would probably go elsewhere, but it was worth the try and the atmosphere and decor is very modern.
