What a great experience. We were treated great fro the get go. They pay attention to details and it shows in their food. We were seated and attended to very casually and the menu explained. The food was over the top and we got to meet the Chef. Excellent experience and would recommend it to anyone.

OMG, the best carpaccio I have ever had. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, they treat you like royality, even if you are just there in your jeans.

The restaurant is well decorated and the food excellent but a few things fell short of expectations for a restaurant in this category. First there is no sides included with the main courses... And the waiter didn't know... So he had to come back and ask us to select some. Food presentation is lacking creativity. At least the taste was... More

Stopped in for a drink and snack before going back to our hotel. This restaurant has a nice relaxing atmosphere, if not a little dark. Not the best view out the window of the valet parking at the front door. They have a good wine list but a poor selection of beer. The oysters were a good variety and very... More

We decided to hit up The Shoreclub Saturday night this passed weekend for a few cocktails and light bites. We were greeted by a super gracious host and seated (great first impression). After about 15mins, a gentleman (who I presume was a runner) asked us if we had been taken care of by our server--we had not, and he went... More

This place is "in" the Westin but they're not connected businesses - which makes sense as they never seemed pleased during conferences when this becomes the boozy after spot to continue debates. Went for lunch and was surprised at the food prices (good for such an upscale place). I had a soup and salad that was very well prepared. They... More

Location: very convenient, lobby at hotel Pricing: appetizers < $20; main dishes (fish, pasta, steaks) $30+, note that all sides (potato, veggies, etc are extra $9, which is a strange pricing scheme. At the Keg and Stone house, they would charge a meal set including a side...just the meat itself on the plate looks rather awkward Beverage: jasmine tea served... More

The Shore Club is great for seafood and steak, however some dishes can be a hit or miss. I would recommend the prawn and scallop dish. The presentation isn't great for all dishes but the food makes up for it.

They say if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. While that's probably good advice, I just had to put in my 2 cents. The Shore Club is positioned as an "upscale" restaurant, located in the Westin Hotel in downtown Ottawa. While it may present itself as high end, the resulting experience is anything but. On a...

I'm not easy on F&B outlets, I'll admit it. My expectations are always tempered these days. I really don't think I'm asking too much. I'm happy if I get a smile, warm food and my glass doesn't go empty. I really don't like raising my hand and begging for service, nor am I a fan of mediocrity in food. Decent... More
