Years ago, Mezzanotte used to be our favourite place for pasta in Ottawa. However, over the years, they've been catering more to the Market crowd by bringing in a DJ on Saturday nights, and generally making the place look and feel more like a club than a restaurant... The food, sadly, has gone downhill with these changes (although the prices... More

We had the pasta con pesce which had shrimps, scallops and mussels in a cheesy or creamy heavy tomato sauce. It was too heavy. Plates are not overfilled but its so rich I couldn't finish it. The other was a Fettucini Carbonara with sausages, half eaten, again it was too rich in a creamy white sauce. We brought it home,... More

Went here with a group from work for our Christmas social. To be honest, I was very impressed. It seemed like if you weren't dressed in black attire, you were sitting by the door. I also found the food to be over-priced and not very well seasoned, my chicken lacked flavour but the veggies were delicious. It was nice to... More

The choices and flavours are exquisite. Portions are very adequate, even for us guys. The food presentation is very appetizing and always a perfect temperature. The wait staff so far have been most accommodating, friendly, yet courteous and never intrusive. The wines are fairly expensive, but the various items on the menu are quite reasonable, based on the ambience of... More

The seating area is nice - nice decor, lighting, ambiance etc. Though it was a Friday night and when the DJ started music around 9 it was way too loud for that hour. Couldn't even hear the waiter. The food took a while to arrive and for the most part was pretty plain. The menu left much to be desired.... More

This is a very beautiful restaurant. We came at 5 o'clock so there were a lot of waitstaff hanging around with nothing to do. I believe we got the least genial of them as our server. He was not as friendly as the others appeared to be. Nontheless, everything was delicious except the mixed drink, which was supposed to be... More

Went for dinner with a group of eight colleagues while in Ottawa for a work-related event. A colleague picked the place based on on-line reviews. The decor is over the top - looks like they're trying to create the appearance of being on a cruise ship - except for the sports on the big screen tv over the bar area... More

Ambiance is beautiful, the food was amazing as well as the service. Make sure you share the appetizers as they are huge. My only negative comment is that I did not like the wine glasses that were on the table....nor the tv that as on CNN. For such a classy restaurant the glasses need to be upgraded and the tv... More
