Decided to take my Mom out for a nice, Easter weekend dinner; after reading up on some great steakhouses near Ottawa I decided to give the Sterling House a try. Short and sweet if you like steak & enjoy a nice atmosphere in the company and care of owners who aim to make your stay a memorable experience, look no... More

From the moment we entered Sterling to the moment the most gracious Maitre'd, Ahmed, escorted us to our waiting cab, our evening was a delight. A tour of the kitchen and an amazing wine cellar was followed with a gorgeous salad and then perfectly-grilled grass-fed filet mignon with delicious frites ... perfect. Impeccable, gracious, and friendly service - we felt... More

Always very attentive service and do both seafood and steak well. Steak is cooked to perfection and served with sides which you can choose. Brought out dessert with a candle for the birthday girl was a nice touch too.

I've never had a meet on site. Although I know it is an outstanding restaurant for a one of a kind meal, Since it is sooooo good but quite expensive, I drive by to buy their meat from the meat counter to cook it at home. This way I can benefit more of their succulent aged tender meat.

The Sterling Steakhouse is truly THE best steakhouse in and around Ottawa! We dined here a couple of weeks ago and were again so very pleased at the top-notch service, non-rushed and personable service, and second-to-none steaks. A unique feature of Sterling is that your server will show you the cuts of meat you have chosen before they are actually... More
