The Elmdale Oyster House & Tavern1. The Elmdale Oyster House & Tavern

Seafood | Ottawa, Ottawa

A great spot to gather with friends and on a Friday night, their steak special is always welcome. Great atmosphere and the oysters are always awesome...but, on this night, the service was completely inattentive and lacking. Food and drinks were forgotten, she could not be found...overall, disappointing and honestly, not the norm. Hope this does not become a trend because its a great place. More

Italian | Ottawa, Ottawa

Absolutely phenominal experience. I say experience because at DiVino you're doing more than just eating. You're experiencing the family-like atmosphere, the extensive wine list, the outstanding food, and the courteous staff; all while watching the chefs cook the meals. The staff is knowledgable in the wines which is what I went for. I knew nothing about wine and actually learned a lot as well as opening up my tastebuds to new things. Definitely a great place for wine lovers and newbies alike. I can honestly say this was my best dining experience of my life, so far. I'll be back over and over! More
