This is a bit of a gem in the market... I think its a great place for 2 people.. that first or second date, or just catching up with a friend in one of the booths.. or when in a group of 5-7 that reserves ahead to get one of the two round tables at the back of the restaurant.... More

Easy seating. Excellent service. Had the Chicken Caesar - good; 14$ fries - good. Jambalaya - excellent - spicy but tasty. Drinks were very good. Pricey, but not too expensive.

Weekend in Ottawa and this place was nearby and accepted reservations on OpenTable - very convenient. Had a huge selection of wine and beers. Ignore the website they serve you your drinks you do not have to go up to the bar and ask. I had the spicy crab cakes, very yummy. Mussels in spicy creole sauce with french fries.... More

The wine and the service were very good. They have a wine tasting offering which contains 3, 20 oz glasses of different wines. They made very nice selections for different kinds. We tasted 6 delicous red wines and continued with the ones we loved most. But the food was not as good as we expected. I had a seafood rice... More

Good selection, but mostly more common wines. Not as adventurous as some others. Still a great place though that I have no trouble recommending.

This place is great for evening cocktails with colleagues, friends or for more intimate occasions. Fantastic beer, wine and bubbly flights. The atmosphere is cool, relaxed and intimate. Live Jazz throughout the week - recommend getting a seat early!

Absolutely amazing as always. Hubby and I love going here as often as we can. Great wine and beer flights, food and service. They never disappoint us. On the weekends, there can be a bit of a wait for a table because they allow a lot of reservations. Therefore, all the tables get booked up not leaving any for people... More

Good location downtown, easy walking distance to all parking in market. Old pub feel rather than a wine bar, but nice enough. comfortable seating at a booth. Waitress very knowledgable about wine menu, very helpful. I tried the chardonnay flight, 3 different chardonnays, very good and fun. Chicken Parmagiana, very salty, did not arrive hot, noodles overcooked and oversauced. Chicken... More
