I had the opportunity to have lunch at this restaurant recently and I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch. I hadn't eaten there in some time and I was meeting a friend downtown. Our server Daphne was a breath of fresh air with a lovely smile. I couldn't decide on the salad I wanted so she said they could do a combo... More

I was impressed with the dinning experience and the food was to die for, I would do it all again it was so good!

When staying in a hotel in the winter it is nice to be able to have dinner without putting one's boots on! Grill 41 is a pretty good resto with an interesting tapas menu, a reasonable bar menu, and the usual full, and more pricy, dinner menu. We ate there a couple of times in the evening during our recent... More

I checked out the restaurants around the Byward Market but decided to continue on Laurier St that's when I spotted Grill 41. I was in jeans and winter clothes, it was around 4:30pm. This resto...

I visited this restaurant for a quick lunch during my visit to ottawa. The lunch menu is fairly concise and doesnt provide a lot of options for people with dietary restrictions..

I ate here on a recent business trip as I stayed at the Lord Elgin Hotel. I found the booths to be private and had a nice street view. Servers were friendly and attentive although a little green.
