Hello giddie2, we are glad to hear you had a lovely dinner! The foie gras is of course one of our favourites as well - always exciting to discover what the dish will be everyday (as the accompaniments change with the freshest seasonal ingredients)!

I’ve been to Restaurant 18 many times - it’s my go-to favorite place in Ottawa. The food is always excellent as is the service. A great place for a business dinner or a family treat when visiting Ottawa.

Working business dinner for 5. This is an excellent high-class restaurant. Decor is pleasant and relaxing. Staff is attentive and professional - no unnecessary hanging-around to chat. Food is expensive but good. Sommelier was a bit chatty but the wine selection was a good choice....More

Thanks gordoncr for the great review! We are glad you trusted our staff and kitchen in taking you outside of your comfort zone with the beef tartar! We hope your next evening with us is just as good (if not better than) the first.

The meal at Eighteen was superb. After a lovely amuse bouche of smoked salmon, the bread arrived at the table - a first-night experiment of the chef. It was called onion bread but had only the faintest flavour of onion, and it was totally luscious,...More

The front entrance is a large wood door, embedded into centuries old stone facade that has housed old schools, factories, and eventually re purposed into a restaurant, and a good one at that. I'm a simple guy, beer, steaks, fries, and even though you can...More

High quality food, service, ambiance, wine selection, etc. I love everything about this place and have been on multiple occasions. My only issue is that once I was served the wrong cut of beef. Otherwise a flawless track record!
