I didn't taste any smoke flavor or any flavor at all here. Why is it that both Montreal and Toronto have amazing smoke meat restaurants and Ottawa has none? I was starving and thought twice about eating the other half of my sandwich. When I started eating it there was a piece of smoked meat that I couldn't even chew,... More

I gone to this express lunch location many times, Recently have attended two different occasions and have had quick enjoyable lunches. I had the smoked meat platter with my brother and we both enjoyed our lunch. Both of us commented that the sandwich was not like the Dunn's Montreal Jumbo smoked meat we grew up with, but enjoyable just the... More

I was there to celebrate the seasons with friends. As we are all busy, we chose sparks street, lunch hour break. The service was really good, I also enjoyed the Malbec, but the salads could be better.

Found this by a groupon which I decided to try since I loved the original Nates. The express is well hidden in the business park. It is as good as the original. Not much space in the joint and it closes early but I recommend it.

My girlfriend and I stumbled upon this place while visiting Ottawa and trying to find some lunch. The food was very nice and it was great value for money, I had a smoked meat sandwich which was very nice and highly recommended and my girlfriend had a chicken Caesar salad which she also recommends. The service was also very good... More

We decided to try Nates Express with a Groupon. Of the four of us, three ordered breakfast and one ordered lunch. The breakfasts were the worst we've had in Ottawa. At $5, the standard breakfast might have been priced fairly except that Nates Express was a fast food establishment with self service at a cash. After we received our meals,... More

Nate's is a great spot for lunch if you are in the neighbourhood. The food is excellent and the service is good and friendly. It is a spin off of a long standing restaurant in lower town that had closed. It had a very good name then and for a little place it still does.

This small lunch-time only deli is located in a light-industry plaza in a suburb not too far from the airport. Run by ex-employees of a long standing and well known Ottawa deli that had closed, it carries on with the basic menu. (It should not be confused with another successor Nates on Marivale Ave which is not being reviewed here).... More
