Restaurant wedding in Ottawa

Jesseve Oct 2, 2006 09:35 PM

I'm interested in holding a small wedding reception (25-30 people) in a restaurant in Ottawa with the best food humanly possible. A private dining room would be nice, but not essential. I'm a huge fan of Beckta, but I was wondering if you had any other suggestions.

    If you aren't strictly limited to the city and were willing to travel about 20 minutes into the Gatineau hills, I would try out Les Fougeres. The food is fabulous, service attentive and the setting very pretty - especially now in the fall.

      If I was invited to a wedding at Les Fougeres, I would bring a VERY nice gift!

      My cousin held his wedding at the Courtyard restaurant. I did not attend so I can't comment on the food but he said it was a wonderful wedding and other family members raved about the food. The pictures made it look like a lovely spot for a wedding and it is right downtown in the market area.

        Beckta would be wonderful and Les fougères is a fantastic choice just outside of the city (the decor would be a bit more special and "weddingy).

        If you like Beckta, have you considered parfyum in Gatineau(where former Beckta chef Steven Vardy is now the chef)?

          I would recommend Par'fyum simply because they could accomodate for a larger group like that, and they also have an event coordinator that helps the planning. I think it's a fairly common occurence with them..
