Saturday night in Ottawa with (grown-up) family

Can anyone recommend an easy, low-key restaurant for a Saturday night extended-family dinner in Ottawa? Concerns are: my husband is a strict vegetarian, his brother is a strict vegan, the rest of us don't have any dietary concerns but my Step-Father is mildly scared of spicy/ethnic food outside his comfort zone. We would hope to spend $15 - $25 on mains and really just want somewhere where the food is yummy and we can comfortably enjoy each others' company. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

  1. Zen Kitchen on Somerset Street just east of Bronson is fantastic. People who aren't vegetarian or vegan still love it. Should make a reservation.

    Another vegetarian restaurant/vegan restaurant is called The Green Door and is on Main Street. Also lots of dishes that would appeal to non-vegetarians.

    1. I agree totally with the recc for Zen Kitchen. - wonderful

      As well, I have friends who like The Table at Wellington and Holland but I can't offer an opionin as I have never been there myself .
