My son and I visited here and found it quite decent. They have a fantastic wood grill and the steak had a lovely smoky taste to it. My son loved the Calamari, said the batter was the best he had ever tasted and he also extolled the virtues of the Pecan Pie :) I must say, if you are a... More

Dinner at Sterling is not just a meal; it is an event. Plan on making it an evening. Expect to be served in the finest atmosphere, with the best... More

The setting by the river, the ambiance of the house, the attentive service, the unhurried pace that cultivates savouring both a great meal and great company, the quality of the meal were all top shelf. I decided on Sterling instead of the Keg Manor and this is definitely my new favourite steakhouse.

We had the Table D'Hote selection; we both had the... More

Decided to take my Mom out for a nice, Easter weekend dinner; after reading up on some great steakhouses near Ottawa I decided to give the Sterling House a try.

From the moment we entered Sterling to the moment the most gracious Maitre'd, Ahmed, escorted us to our waiting cab, our evening was a delight. A tour of the kitchen and an amazing wine cellar was followed with a gorgeous salad and then perfectly-grilled grass-fed filet mignon with delicious frites ... perfect. Impeccable, gracious, and friendly service - we felt... More

Always very attentive service and do both seafood and steak well. Steak is cooked to perfection and served with sides which you can choose. Brought out dessert with a candle for the birthday girl was a nice touch too.
