We went to Sterling for my husband's birthday celebration with friends. It was our first time and we will definitely be back. Outstanding service and food with unobtrusive live music. Truly an evening out to remember.

A few great Steakhouse's have come and gone in Ottawa and only a few remain. Sterling is and has been our new favourite location for a romantic evening and business get togethers, celebrations etc., for the past 3 years.

The service is very good and should there be something not to your liking, customer service is exceptional and it will be addressed.

Very few locations have been able to consistently prepare our steaks to our liking (rare). Time and time again we enjoy a fantastic meal with great service and hospitality.

This charming restaurant is situated along the Ottawa River in Gatineau, which is a scenic place to take photos and feel relaxed in an atmosphere of calmness and nature.

The staff were professional and attentive and the waiter even brought out real samples of the steak to choose from encased in a transparent cover. This was helpful to observe the different sizes and cuts of steak.

For those individuals who do not like steak there is a plethora of food items to choose from, such as surf and turf, seafood and pasta. The salted caramel cheesecake was delicious. The caesar salad had large delicious slices of Parmesan and a large crouton in a cone like shape. I enjoyed my Papa cut with the twice baked potato. It was accompanied by root vegetables. The wine list was impressive. You can order by the 355 ml bottle or by the glass. A glass of rose wine for me was around 12 dollars. My Papa cut was 45 dollars which included the potato or my choice of side plus vegetables. The Papa cut was quite large but one could choose a steak to one's liking, such as the filet mignon or New York steak. The visual transparent case made ordering very clear.

The restaurant was in a house-like structure and there were fountains with lights in the front area. One could take pictures outside, as the property was very pretty as well as the river view. There was a piano player to add to the elegant atmosphere.

Sterling was a wonderful way to end the day after going to the Canadian Museum of History. My friend and I took a short taxi ride from the museum to the restaurant (around 10 minutes).

I highly recommend this lovely restaurant along the river. One could dress casually or formal to one's liking! Bon appetit!

We dine often so it's rare that we find new places to rave about. This restaurant is the rare exception.

We dined on the front terrace. Highly recommended if the weather is amenable.

We were treated like kings by the wait staff and Maitre Ahmed alike. This added greatly to the overall dining experience

The food and beverages are all bar none. An impressive wine list for a restaurant in a remote local. Maitre Ahmed showed us the coolers and explained his choice of the finest meat

Our appetizers were excellent. French onion soup with a twist.... Camembert! Oysters that could not have been fresher. All excellent.

Steak prepared exactly as ordered, tender and juicy.....my mouth waters as I write.

All was topped off with fine desserts made in house.

It's only a short cab ride from Ottawa. Well worth it.

The only thing average here is the price. Truly exceptional service and food. Generous portions, excellent quality and service, great decor, easy parking. Call ahead for reservations. Downstairs is more casual while upstairs more formal. Thank you, We will be back.
