My favorite restaurant in Ottawa. The choice on the menu has enough to satisfy all and the service is always very professional but not high-brow where you feel uncomfortable when asking a question. Although the staff are very dignified, they always relax and laugh with you when the situation presents itself. Some may think it is a little expensive but... More

Nice spot, quiet, dark and intimate. Would be great for a business dinner or a nice meal as a couple. Food was good and the service was great.

We enjoy this restaurant when in Ottawa, especially the fish dishes. There is a nice vibe and good wait staff resulting in a nice dining experience. We were disappointed on this night. My wife had oyster Rockefeller and I had the calamari for an appetizer. The oysters were tasty but the presentation nonexistent. Just 3 oysters on a white plate.... More

Nice restaurant, good service. Steaks are very good and cooked perfectly. For the sides, vegetables were good but fries not so much. Good choice of wines by the bottle and also by the glass.

Popped over after an event at the shaw centre. Sat at the bar, weekday night, quite a business crowd. Friendly and quick staff, very personable and genuine. Menu is well rounded, food wait time was a tad long. Quality of food good based on the price and reasonable portion sizes. Definitely would return, location and atmosphere are great features.

Enjoyed their happy hour with sliders and Jumbo prawns at $2 a piece. Great martinis served by friendly attentive staff. The room is luxurious with very comfortable seating available. Great spot for cocktails and a snack or a delicious dinner.

i would definitely recommend The Shore Club for dinner. The portions are a decent size, we ordered a steak and seafood tower. The steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The seafood tower was a little pricey considering the portion size. Service was wonderful (Thank you Chad) and we will definitely be back the next time we are in town.

Beautiful dining room, bar was big with a lot of seating. We brought our 8 month old in a stroller and they were very accommodating. Highly recommend the stuffed rainbow trout! The sautéed prawns and scallops were also delicious. Service was exceptional!

I am a big restaurant eater and i have tried many many around the world. Yesterday night, The Shore Club in Ottawa proved again being one of the top places I've ever tried. From the welcoming greetings at the reception to the charming words of goodbye, we felt the courtesy and professionalism of the staff. Samantha's service was impeccable, her... More

First we asked for a Shirley Temple for the kids, waitress said were out of grenadine. Which was fine, then we asked for appetizer mussels and she said were out of them? Then we ordered the seafood tray with snow crab and they brought the full tray with no snow crab legs?? I asked I thought there was snow crab... More
