The Shore Club - Ottawa Ratings and Reviews
Ottawa or Bust!
Vacation for us ended in Ottawa after stops in Quebec City and Montreal. Our dinner at the Shore Club was terrific from start to finish. Our waiter was brilliant as well as the other wait staff and the cuisine is truly fit for 'foodies.'

We brought our family of 6 (children ages 8, 5, 3 and infant) to the restaurant on a Tuesday evening. We arrived at 7:45, tired and hungry. The service was fantastic from start to finish. We ordered the calamari as a starter and then grilled cheese for the children and lobster tail for our mini adult (8 y o). I had the maple salmon, my husband had the raw oysters and rib eye and we shared sides of onion rings, salt & vinegar fries, mushrooms & broccoli. We each had dessert (icecream & brownies for the children, coconut pie & baked Alaska for the adults). The main courses and the service were the best part of the entire meal...simple, perfectly cooked, delicious food and attentive service. Our server Alex offered to cut our daughter's lobster and was quick to help adjust the food and drink on the table when I thought it might be spilled. One of our best dining experiences to date. We will definitely be back.

The food was okay, service was decent, but at the same place point there are plenty of better restaurants within walking distance. I wouldn't go to Shore Club Ottawa again for that reason.

Well designed interior , warm and comfortable. The menu selection was very good without being too big. I don't trust very large menus. I had the stuffed trout, comes a la cart, with a large selection of sides. Wine list was very good. Service was spot on. On the way out I saw the bar area where the game was on a few tv's and ample seating. Great for business traveler eating alone.
Over-priced business lunch
They don't offer an extensive lunchtime menu so we were stuck ordering from the dinner menu. It was overpriced and nothing special. The room is too dark. The service is amateur. Other than location I can't imagine how they get ANY business.
Professional and warm service
I had a great time last time I came to TSC. All the staff members were warm and very professional. Our server was patient and knowledgeable of all the details on TSC's menu. Although, the overall experience was excellent, the chef's mussel selection was odd and incomplete for such a classic dish. Again, I was impressed by the staff and by their genuine quest to please us. I look forward to returning there! Thanks!
great night at the shore club
Dinner at the shore club saturday night was terrific.. great waiter (Rad), wine, food and ambiance ... a little expensive but loved the vibe and my lady and i had a great evening.
Food and service very good! Very pricey ,expense account oriented .This price point demands a ambience that is quieter than a roadhouse. A dress code other than T shirt and jeans would be nice . Disappointed that the restaurant layout did not manage to equal the good food and service. Picky points, to be rated a true 4 star, all levels of a high quality experience should be managed equally !

Excellent food, atmosphere, and service. To say anymore would not do the place justice. Excellent dining experience.
Wallie:should indicate on the menue in season only
The atmosphere was exactly what I was looking for. Private, quiet celebration of senior managers who just completed a certificate training program. Service was attentive and non-disruptive to the conversation. Having 3 staff bring out the hot food plates all at once was a good service. I would return an host another similar group. Your private room for up to 15 looks like a place I could bring a senior management group for informal gatherings. Thanks

It was absolutely amazing. The staff was beyond helpfull and accomodating. The food was flavorful and delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. The atmosphere wasn't too busy and the tables are well placed. Even with people around and talking you were still able to easily have a conversation. The food came out in a timely manner and we weren't kept waiting for anything. Anytime we may have needed something there was always someone around and willing to help. Thank you again for an amazing experience.
An evening to remember
Have been several times at different times of the day and as always Had a great time. Fantastic food and excellent service. Worth every penny. Not a place for people who are looking for an inexpensive meal or quick service.
The Shore Club - Outstanding service
It was a romantic birthday dinner which was done to perfection by the staff at Shore Club. Sat down at a impressively dressed table with a presentation card wishing me a happy birthday, nice touch. My husband had the Sautéed Prawns & Scallops, absolutely a pleasure for the palate. I had the King crab legs. I ordered a pound (2, 1/2 pound sides) as the king crab entrée has been removed from the menu. I felt a bit short changed on that part. I have ordered a pound in many restaurants and had a heftier portion. The crab was a bit dry, but still enjoyable. I ordered a baked potatoe which contained nice fresh green onions, sour cream and real bacon, what a treat. Now the service. My water and wine glass were never empty. The amount of servers around our table gave us a feeling of importance....this is rare today! The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and a pure delight. A complimentary birthday brownie was sent to our table with Happy birthday written on the plate in chocolate syrup. Again a nice touch.

Food (steak) and service not great considering the level that the place is supposed to be. The ambience is good. A bit disappointed. Toronto location is much better.
Great food too bad about the service
The food was wonderful but unfortunately the service did not meet with our expectations. We had to wait almost 30 minutes for our desert and when it finally came we were ready to leave
Lunch at the Shore Club
This was my first experience at the Shore Club and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Our server, Paul, was excellent and the food was very good. I've already recommended it to one person and I'm sure I will return with a different group of friends.

Filet mignon was fantastic. Cooked to perfection. Oysters Rockefeller yummy. Loved the California wine. Our only complaint was the crab cake. My husband is a big eater. He wanted more than one 🙂🙂🙂🙂
Wonderful wine list, great food!
We reserved a table for New Year's Eve at the Shore Club. Food was excellent; the jumbo shrimp cocktail was amazingly fresh, filet mignon was tender and the sides were very generous. We were delighted they had our favorite wine on their list. Service was very professional. We would go back for a special occasion.
Fantastic New Year's Eve Dinner
My sister and I visited for New Year's Eve and I cannot sing the praises enough. Our waiter, Owen, was fantastic. The other servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was unbelievable. The only criticisms I would add are that it was a little dark for my taste, and the wine was a bit pricier than I expected. To be fair, it was worth the price, just more than I expected to pay. Overall, it was one of the best experiences of my visit to Ottawa and I would recommend it for any special occasion.
We came here for Christmas dinner. Wait staff was friendly and professional. However, their food recommendations could have been more knowledgeable, and they could have suggested better pairings. The halibut was a little over cooked. Overall, it was a good place for dinner. Far better than the Christmas buffet happening at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier.
Christmas eve dinner
This is our5th christmas eve dinner at the Shore Club and we always look forward to being pampered by the staff. The food is excellent. Service is hors paire
I enjoy going to the Shore Club for lunch.
Especially great for the oysters as they always have a good selection and the personnel is quite knowledgeable about the different varieties so they can help you making a choice suited to one's taste. Ambiance sophisticated and romantic at the same time.
Good but Expensive
2nd time in a month eating here . It is very convenient if you are at The Westin. We asked for a quiet table and were placed at the end of a hall near washroom hallway - not bad but not great . Waiter was good but somehow we expected a bit more . This is a high end KEg owned by The Keg ..food is good but doesn't warrant the prices - we may or may not go back . Overall it is good but just overpriced for what you get .
Good but very pricey
Everything about this restaurant was very good, but the price range listed on Open Table ($31-$50) is incorrect and misleading: the appetizers are in the $10-$18 range, and the steak cuts are *all* above $30 (more for the larger premium cuts, up to $48) and, like other high-end steakhouses, your sides are extra and in the $12-$18 range. Add at $12 dessert and a $18 glass of wine, and you are way above the listed per-person price on Open Table. That is my one comment is the misleading price on Open Table.
WACCA Silent Auction
A few years back, we missed out on a WACCA silent auction opportunity to dine at your restaurant and my wife and I have been anxious to try it ever since. The auction brought our attention to your restaurant and we are very pleased that we finally took the time to experience it. It was a great evening out with friend before a NAC event. I hope you consider providing another opportunity like this to the Walls and Ceilings Contractors Association (WACCA) as it was the ticket that brought us to your restaurant and will will come again. Thank you.
A1 fantastic Service
Outstanding service from Lizz and the Manager Craig. The food was also excellent . The restaurant itself has a very nice ambiance to it . It was really wonderful .
Outstanding Night of Celebration!
I chose The Shore Club to celebrate retirement with my closest friends after 40 years of military service. Our server, who was also a sommelier, did an outstanding job of quickly, yet discretely, attending to all of our needs. His champagne and wine recommendations were perfect. The food, as usual, was superb. This restaurant is a favourite in Ottawa, and highly recommended for anyone looking for a touch of class in a modern setting. I'll be back.
Service and food were really good.
A special evening out. The food, wine, and service were really good.
good food, Great Service
I booked for a business dineer with 6 guests. our Servers were great, knew when to be there to keep things moving and when to leave us to our discussion. the food was very good, everyone enjoyed their meal. overall this is a great place for an important business meeting.
Great scene, okay food
My friend and I went to the shore club for a nice lunch and wine. The staff was very knowledgable and the environment was perfect to me. Dark lighting, quiet, relaxing. The food however, I expected a better menu from a resturant with higher pricing. If I am paying $22 for chicken id like a side dish without an extra $6-12. Other than that I did enjoy my visit at The Shore Club
We were there on Thanksgiving evening because so many other places were closed. The food is of high quality but the portions too large. It's a good choice when in Ottawa but not by a long stretch my favourite place in town - a little stuffy.
I talked at great length with the manager. I was very impressed by the tea-oriented approach to service. At least five different people performed different tasks at our table throughout the meal, yet it was apparent that each one of them know exactly what the others were doing, and the status of our table's progress through the meal. This is not an easy thing to pull off, and is the result of very good training, and the instilling of an attitude that we're all in this together. The old saying is, "There's no limit to what can be done when it doesn't matter who gets the credit." The food—off the Thanksgiving menu—while not spectacular in my opinion, was VERY solid and very well presented.
Wonderful spot for a special occasion!
My husband & I recently visited the Shore Club for our 5th Anniversary. It was fantastic!! Thank you to all the staff who helped me surprise my husband. He is often away and our time together is limited. The staff at The Shore Club made our Anniversary special and our weekend together very memorable. Thank you many times. We will be back as soon as possible.

Very good seafood. Lobster bisque is intense. Sea bass is of high quality. Very good wine list and knowledgeable sommelier to help navigate.
