We were here for dinner with our family and generally things went well. The ambiance and setting are great. Food was generally good but we had some service glitches. Our daughter-in-law ordered tuna on the rare side but it arrived well done and although they brought her another plate properly cooked, she ended up eating alone as we had all... More

I came for dinner with 2 of my friends. We arrived at around 7pm. Seated at a decent table. We started with cocktail drinks before our dinner. Two of us had the beef tartar. Honestly it was ok, I didn't like the thick cookies that were served with the tartar, I prefer thin style cookies not to over power the... More

Seven of us went to Sterling to celebrate two birthdays and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. They have the best steaks. Service was amazing and Ahmed (the maître D) looked after us with a special treat. Thanks Ahmed! Also, our server was very attentive and noticed the birthday cards so he brought us a special cake. Looking forward to... More

I wrote a positive review in 2008, but now feel differently about this place. Let's start with the pros, good location, nice building, good meat. I'm struggling to find more this time around. I've been there about 6 times, and always notice a tiny difference in quality. I used to love the perigourdine sauce, now it just seems like typical... More

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
