  |     |   Community, Ottawa, Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is all about celebrating love – love for our partners, families, and friends! What better way celebrate than a night out on the town? From cozy bistros to romantic fine dining, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you're looking for a quiet evening for two or a group outing with family or friends, you can find a restaurant that will make your Valentine's Day truly special.

At Osgoode Properties, we #lovelocal. Here are just a few of our favourite places around Ottawa.

Downtown Ottawa

Whether you are trying to make a great first date impression or celebrating a milestone in your relationship, Metropolitain Brasserie is sure to please. This cozy restaurant is warm and inviting and offers classic French cuisine with a modern twist. There is a full bar featuring local craft beers and wine, as well as signature cocktails. If you’re looking for a more laid-back evening, try The Albion Rooms. This restaurant is in a historic hotel that has been given a modern makeover. You have the option of a seated dining experience or small plates with drinks in their comfortable, chic lounge. Both restaurants are easily accessible for residents living in our downtown Ottawa apartment rentals.

Looking for a restaurant that also offers a fun experience to share with your date? Supply and Demand offers pasta-making classes. A chef will guide you through the pasta-making process and once it’s complete, you can move to the restaurant side to enjoy your creation! Not in the mood for pasta? Down the road is Absinthe Café with a menu featuring classic French-Canadian dishes with a sophisticated twist. The restaurant’s charming atmosphere features an eclectic mix of vintage and modern décor – a unique setting for a romantic evening. And, as they say, “absinthe” makes the heart grow fonder!

Want to take your Valentine away for the night? Cantina Gia will transport you to the (figurative) hillside of Tuscany, Italy. This boutique restaurant offers traditional Tuscan dishes with a modern twist. Northern Italy farm décor makes the quaint space warm and inviting. If you’re feeling inspired after a delicious Italian meal, there’s also a shop where you can purchase Italian spices, olive oils, pastries, and Italian wines. Another Italian cuisine option nearby is Vittoria Trattoria. This family-owned business creates classic Italian dishes straight from your Nonna’s recipe book. The dining room is open-concept seating with a beautiful glass-ceiling wine cellar as the focal point. Located near many of our Ottawa South apartment rentals, be sure to stop by this Valentine's Day!
