“Came here to try the Meal For Two ramen. I got myself the Beef Shoyu with garlic oil and my parner ordered the beef original. This was my first time ordering a beef ramen. I usually get pork ramen. It turned out pretty well. The broth was very flavorful especially the beef shoyu one. Give it a try if you want some variety with your ramen. Pork Gyoza was also delicious and crispy. The server was also very attentive and nice—great hospitality.”

“BEST pizza in Ottawa IMO. The “Sweetheart” is the idyllic pepperoni pizza with a bit of added “zing”, and it’s literally perfect in every way. The Fennel & Sausage pizza was also excellent! The birthday cake was a simple but perfect dessert. Our server was so kind, and the overall time spent at Heartbreakers couldn’t have been better. Hopefully they might expand at some point-getting a reservation isn’t easy! :)”

However, I think the four-cheese makes for a very oily pizza, as ours had liquid dripping from the pizza onto the pan. We didn't know their style of pizza was thin-crust, but nonetheless it was still really good. The dip was creamy and delicious too!The cheesecake was TO DIE FOR. I absolutely recommend it. $12 a slice, but so so worth.Noor was our server, she was so sweet and constantly checked up on us!A delightful experience in a quiet, clean, and comfortable restaurant. ☺️”

“Went for a romantic dinner with the wife tonight and have never eaten here before. We were lucky and found a parking spot directly in front of the place on the street. There is a paid parking lot right next door as well and there was lots of room there.The space is pleasant and hipsterish, with eclectic, slightly too-loud music that was slightly distracting. The lighting was low enough to provide ambience but was still bright enough to read the menu! This gets more important the older I get...The space was a little tight; our little table beside the wall was just far enough away from the 2 parties adjacent to us to not be able to hear their conversation. I think it might be why the music volume was slightly louder. It actually provided a little auditory privacy.Service was knowledgable and attentive. Between the waitress, hostess and kitchen staff running out some food, everyone was warm and pleasant.The food - we opted for appetizers only, because they all sounded so good! The ceviche was fresh and tasty but could have used slightly more acid. We had the pear and raddichio salad, which was an interesting blend of tastes- the bitterness of the greens was neatly complemented by the soft bite of the cheese. The stuffed clams were bacon-y and homey. A squeeze of lemon helped there too. The real prize was the Beef Tataki. Several thin slices of rare beef with perfectly seared edges was drowned in anchovy aoli and pickled shallots. Crispy sweet potato filaments and just the right amount of chili heat made this the best appetizer I've eaten out all year!We also had the Maple Pudding Chomeur for dessert. This was a maple soaked, buttery, cakey, pudding served with clotted cream and a tinge of vin jaune. Decadent and delicious, along with a very well made cappucino, it was the perfect way to finish.The menu apparently changes every now and then, and we will definitely be back to try it, as long as the Beef Tataki is still available!Vegetarian options: There was a charred cauliflower main for $40.”

The pot pie was delicious, however we were disappointed with the trout, especially at that price point. The trout itself was good, and the pasta with chorizo was good, but it just didn’t work together. The pasta was too spicy and it took away from the fish. Extremely disappointed with that considering it’s also the most expensive thing on the menu. With all that said the service was fantastic. Couldn’t have had a better waitress.”
