My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at MeNa’s on their New York flavour night. All the courses and wine pairings were awesome. It was well worth the 175$ a person. We hope to go back on a regular menu night.

This is a gem in Ottawa! We had 5 courses and loved everyone. Highlight was an incredibly fresh crab gazpacho made with perfect tomatoes. Could go on about every dish....Look forward to my next visit.

Description
At MeNa, we believe fine dining should be a memorable experience. We make it our job to share pieces of art and culture by creating modern French dishes paired with tasteful Canadian wines to create the ultimate dining experience. By utilizing locally sourced ingredients, our new restaurant in the heart of Little Italy offers many things other do not. With a menu that features a twist on old favorites, exceptional drinks, and a unique tasting menu, MeNa is something that must be experienced and shared with friends. We are deeply rooted in tradition, but always have our eyes open, looking ahead to new flavours and concepts we know our patrons will enjoy. We could not be more driven to offer Ottawa a truly unique and progressive dining experience; we look forward to serving you at MeNa.
