It shouldn’t be hard to find a fine dining place in Ottawa, but sometimes you feel like you’ve seen it all. You’re ready to taste something different, but not sure where to start. If that’s the case, here’s what you should do to get the spot you want.
#1 A place with music
There’s nothing compared to a dining place with live music. Relaxing melodies from a local band will set the mood for your friends or family on your dining out. Not to mention you’ll receive “the boyfriend/girlfriend of the year” title for planning the perfect night out!
When it comes to the music, you should pick a restaurant with a live band. Listening to the live music performance is of particular importance for jazz or ambient music because you will get the full grasp of the harmonies and melodies.

#2 Check out their menu
Are you a seafood lover or just want a “regular” meal? In either case, you should check out the list before you head to the restaurant. Even though you should stay open-minded, especially in regards to different food, there might be a chance to get disappointed if you try something you didn’t use to. If a restaurant can’t offer you a menu before you go and make an order, you should check out online reviews on authority sites. Pick ones that are not too “emotional” and try to make your own decision.
A pro tip: if it looks good in the picture, it probably tastes good, too!
#3 How does it look like inside
A lovely decorated ambient is also important in finding a fine dining place in Ottawa. Sitting in the right place, with nicely blended colors and shapes, will make you feel more comfortable and relaxed. On the other hand, a balanced design has an effect on your appetite. So, take a look at the pictures of the interior first, or take a walk to the place and check it out by yourself!
