JUST WOW, food was amazing and full of flavours. Every course had different experience and full of amazing flavours.
I would recommend anyone to come and to trying this amazing restaurant.

Just wow. The wife and I came for her birthday day dinner, and let me tell you that after dinning at various Michelin star restaurants MēNa should be the first in ottawa. From the greeting to the end ...was just fantastic, there is an amazing staff with Chef James Bratsberg. We had the 7 course dinner and both options for wine pairings. Some wines I would not have imagined to work so well with the courses but they did. MēNa is definitely the best restaurant in ottawa and should be nominated for a Michelin star. Can't wait for my next visit. See More

The uniqueness of the evening, started with a smile from the specialty servers, mouthfuls of savours, flavour burst and a well balanced blind menu paired with wines I never heard of before.... but OMG... it all worked well. We finished the evening with a smile from the specialty servers. Oh and a special appearance to our table from the Executive Chef, where else do you get this style of service in Ottawa? First for myself. Keep it up MēNa as you have a true unique gem here

What a special evening! From the warm greeting the moment I walked in the door, right to the last morsel of dessert, I could not have asked for a better night out! The 5 course meal with wine pairings... was an experience that will not soon be forgotten. While each course was small, each dish was obviously carefully thought out and beautifully executed, the overall culmination of dishes ensured that no one at our table was left hungry by the end. Don't plan on eating here in any type of hurry, as MeNa is more about the dining experience, and not rushing you from plate to plate, allowing diners to fully savour each mouthful. I cannot recommend it enough. Thank you to Erin, who was among the best servers I've had the pleasure of sharing such an experience with, and to Robbie, who made sure that each course was accompanied by a wine that was paired to perfection with the meal. Thank you also goes out to the kitchen staff, whose efforts certainly did not go unnoticed. See More

The service was fantastic. We had the 7 course meal with the wine pairing of course and all of the wines paired wonderfully. The food was good; however, the portion size was definitely small. We will... likely return for a casual evening of sipping wines; however, not for a formal evening meal. See More

A first class culinary experience! By far the best restaurant in Ottawa, and I would say Canada. This place is the place to go for something very special.

I ate here this past Saturday and loved every bit of our visit. The service was wonderful, the music playlist was awesome, the decor is perfect. I loved every bite of my meal and would have licked the... plate if it was socially acceptable! I will say that the entree portion (lamb) was really small, basically the same size as my appetizer. But delicious all the same. We'll be back! See More

Amazing atmosphere with a wide selection of culinary arts for the palette. Each bite left an experience and feeling like nothing I have enjoyed before. Very much worth the time. Will be back again.

Wonderful experience! Everything was pristine. The wine pairing couldn't have been more fabulous. The place was very inviting, the waiters where very knowledgeable, we will definitely be going back!

For me, a restaurant can only achieve a 5 star rating if it offers me exquisite flavours and textures that I had not yet experienced. This, in addition to excellent, courteous service, clean restrooms... and tasteful, imaginative decor. Check, check, check. Thank you MēNa, for a lovely evening. See More

While drink service was a little slow, the delicious food made up for everything! Beautiful décor & looking forward to trying out the rest of the menu. Maybe add a little extra help on the bar for bus...y weekends though See More

Tasteful environment, flavourful food and attention to detail is undeniable. We've been to MeNa several times and it remains one of our favourite restaurants in Ottawa.

Quel repas hier soir! Pierre-Luc a attendu 1 an avant de dénicher une réservation au Mēna, quartier Italien à Ottawa. Ça faisait 15 ans que nous ne nous étions pas vus et notre accueil n'aurait pas pu... être plus chaleureux. Excellent service surtout par le jeune homme derrière le bar où nous étions assis. Il y avait même du bacon 😍. Two thumbs way way up See More
