This bar's Halloween orange sign jumps out at passersby on Elgin Street. Popular with a younger crowd, Mash is a hip place to quaff a cocktail or snack on burgers, salads and sandwiches. A wide variety of appetizers is available, including Belgian Mussels steamed in Stella Artois. The centrepiece of the venue, an oval bar, is complemented by modern roomy seating, and the decor could stand in as a set in an IKEA commercial.
I thought this place is really under-rated and overlooked. Ottawa needs more places like MASH. I would recommend the spring rolls, crab & shrimp fondue (it's really a dip) and the Moscow Lure's are out of this world. Service is friendly and knowledgeable. Although, it could use a better wine list...but all wines can be ordered by the glass as well. Nice. I recommend this place.
This was a waste of my time and money and I (along with several others) would probably not frequent again. We had a group of 16 and our service was pretty slow with the waiter forgetting items a few times. I didn't find that there was much of a selection on the menu. I ordered the cheese fondue which came with apples, asparagus, a baguette, and beets. The apples were so soft and soggy - couldn't eat them. The asparagus was sooo overcooked that I couldn't eat it either - you could bend it in the shape of a U and it just stayed like that. The baguette was actually pumpernickel bread (something I don't like) so it was an absolutely rotten meal. My friend ordered the tenderloin ($29) and when his meal came, he had the piece of meat and some mashed potatoes - that's it, no salad or veggies. It was just a rip-off & the portion sizes were fairly small (enough but at other restaurants you leave feeling like you got your money's worth). My husband ordered the burger and fries and didn't even get asked if he would like vinegar or ketchup. He finally asked for ketchup - it didn't come, he asked again .. his fries were done and he was waiting to eat his burger with his ketchup. It finally came but only after his burger was cold. I had to wait several minutes (if not more) for a daiquiri I ordered. He kept saying they were busy but other people at my table were getting their drinks. Overall, a terrible experience and absolutely not worth it! Just avoid it!
The location is the best thing - Elgin Street. Well decorated little place, fun to go for an after work drink.
This place was cool when the "martini" trend hit Ottawa. They do have some nice drinks. A- crowd is now a B crowd.
The staff is friendly, but service is often very slow.
The food is not that great, some good menu ideas but the delivery falls short sometimes. Overcooked seafood, disappointing Thai dishes, some appetizers are very good though, ask server for suggestions! A few things are reliably good.
Too expensive for the quality food that you get, their premium drinks are pricey, but where aren't they?
Reliable for drinks and snacks, not always for a good dinner.
This groovy and upbeat restaurant has been gaining steam over the past two years to become one of the more popular dining and drinking spots of the Elgin St. and Ottawa night life. Offering a great selection of dining delectables, your taste buds can take a tour of some of the world's tastier dishes. As the evening progresses the hip and trendy come out of the wood and drift in to listen to the DJ's spin on the bar and quoff down a few libations. There is a good selection of both red and white wines, foreign and domestic, and tasty variety of beers on tap and by the bottle. If that is not enough to quench your thirst, then sample a few of the specialty cocktails that are quickly shaken or stirred up by the super friendly and attractive staff. Whatever you are out on the town for, a chilled out meal with a nice bottle of wine or a get the funk out evening of laughs and mayhem, MASH is the place to be.
