My wife and I chose "Big Easy's" to celebrate our 32nd anniversary, and we were not disappointed. From the moment we were welcomed and seated, we were enlightened, educated, and entertained by the excellent staff. The steak commodore was perfect, and my Maritimer wife raved over the Nova Scotia scallops. The meal was capped off with a pair of diet-destroying... More

My husband and I love having dinner here. We are never disappointed. The staff is very nice and helpful and always very attentive. The food is great with a little spicy Cajun kick to it... We come here when we want to treat ourselves but don't necessarily want to be in a Chi-Chi place. We love the relaxed atmosphere of... More

We had an early supper for there here. The service from the kitchen was very slow and when I cam out it was as though the pasta and stake had been under a heat lamp for the duration. Value for money is not what this place offers

This is one of our favorite restaurants with excellent food and service. It is a little pricey but it is all worth it as the food is always good. Their Blackened Salmon Pontchartrain and Broiled Shrimps are fantastic, they have the best crab cakes we have ever tasted and their dirty rice is to die for. The service is very... More

After a lot of research on-line, & this being our first visit to Ottawa, we decided on Big Easy's as one of our restaurant choices. We were NOT disappointed! I was originally very skeptical about their claim of having real Kobe beef, as it is extremely scarce in North America., so I e-mailed them & they assured me that their... More

This is definitely an upper class place. A little bit on the expensive side but they treat you as if you are in classy restaurant. The steak and scallops we had were both very good and the wine was pretty good too. We were there in late afternoon before it got busy and the service was great, This is a... More

My first time at the Big Easy and it was not a disappointment. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. He was treated to the Kobe steak and I had the seared nova scotia scallops which were excellent. One thing, both plates were very salty and we did mention it to the server. She was very nice and thoughtful - great... More

Description
A fantastic selection of fresh shucked oysters, Alberta AAA Sterling Beef & Japanese Kobe Beef, fresh fish and seafood, all served with a New Orleans flair. Take the historic foundation of Creole Louisiana style cuisine, combine it with fresh local ingredients to create the most delectable flavour combinations, and that is what you find at Big Easy's--great food, wine, and service in a relaxed warm environment.A thoughtful wine list has been carefully chosen to compliment the tastes of Louisiana. Stop in for some oysters and a sip of fine wine at the fun & energetic oyster bar, or you can enjoy a more intimate atmosphere in the dining room.
