This little gem in Ottawa South is well worth the visit. The Sunday brunch menu is short and the four of us each had something different. All four of the classic dishes had a twist on the original and were very well prepared. The portions were generous and best of all, the plates arrived hot and at the same time. The service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant is a bit dark in the morning because it faces West and the noise level is quite high, but overall it was very pleasant experience. We certainly plan to try it again for dinner.

It was our first visit to the Belmont, it was a wonderful experience. Interesting well prepared food, wonderful cocktails and a great atmosphere and we both noted how the music in the background enhanced the mood. We will come back...with friends.

The seats were not the most comfortable & the menu was very limited with some unavailable. Aside from that , the plating, freshness, seasoning flavours & perfect cooking of the meal was spot on, and superior to most restaurants. Moroccan chicken & burrata salad were absolutely delicious. Nice large restrooms.

Very good experience, it was a hot day and this was a great place to stop in and cool down. I had the eggs Benny with smoked salmon, with a side of the house made hot sauce which was the highlight menu item personally. All in all reasonable value for what you pay!

We have been going to the Belmont for a few years now and have never been disappointed by the food or the service. I would literally walk over broken glass to get to the Belmont’s Steak Tartare, superb!

Absolutely everything was exceptional. The food blew us away, the mix drinks impressed, the vintage glassware took us aback, and the servers were personable but knew to not interrupt.

We were truly impressed and will recommend.

Ordered 5 different plates. 3 were exceptional. 2 were great. Service was stellar. You pay full price for excellent food. Not 100% sold on the grandpas cottage vibe for the ambience but it’s got a weird charm.

Belmont—the people, the food, the cocktails, the wines, the patrons, the music, the vibe, the needlepoints in the loos—is our all-time favourite restaurant. It’s part of the neighbourhood and a destination too.

Overall the experience was good. The servers were vey attentive and friendly. I had the goat cheese Gnudi. The plate had a little too much other stuff and seemed a little messy but the taste was there.

Great vibe and friendly service; nice brunch options and prosecco but be careful, they also serve with juice! :D Coffee meh, salmon was arguably over-cooked but very good nonetheless. Reunite with friends, come on a date or eat solo at the bar! Will definitely be back. Much love here.

Food was excellent (truly excellent) but service was the only let down, it was very slow. It took a long time for the first course to come out-a charcuterie board (like half an hour) but then once the food started it came out within acceptable time frames (we ate "family style" which was 6 courses). But getting out of there took forever. They rarely asked if anyone wanted another drink, it took forever to get the bill and then once we had the bill it took 15-20 minutes for the waitress to come back with the machine. Excellent food, acceptable service but taking an extra half hour just to get out of there kind of spoiled it at the end of an excellent meal.

Best bday dinner ever! Every dish was delicious - I can’t get over the prawns - and their wine and cocktail list is excellent. The super nice servers geared us up with a high chair and gave us great recommendations. Plus, their reno is 💯. Can’t wait to come back!

Great place in Old Ottawa South. Cocktails are awesome (but a bit too much lemon juice), but fantastic wine list. Food comes in decent proportions. Gotta try their charcuterie/cheese board.

I went there for brunch and we all really liked our food. Friendly service and a nice little place. The sunshine skillet was a generous portion of very tasty vegetables but we were a bit disappointed that it didn't come with potatoes as the menu listed. Though it's hard to complain because it still tasted great.

We went for brunch and found the food was average and the prices high. We each had the SunshineSkillet which was almost entirely vegetables for $19. We could not find evidence of potatoes as per the menu and we got one egg, not two. Hollandaise sauce was very lightly applied. Our friend had the Full Belmont at $20 and she said it was average and had more mushrooms on her plate than anything else.

The whole experience was fine but none of us thought it was great. Disappointing because we had high expectations given the reviews.
