    Exceptional food, stunning venue and attentive staff = a dream venue

    We had our wedding here in September 2021, and we could not have made a better choice for a venue! Gyneya and her team are extremely professional, knowledgeable and provide the highest level of customer service. From helping us navigate changing the date multiple times during the pandemic, to ensuring that our guests felt safe during ceremony and reception, we had a wonderful experience working with Umbrella Bar. Planning our wedding from Toronto was seamless, with great communication by email and phone calls. We very much enjoyed our tasting, and there were tons of great options for food. During the wedding, the staff ensured my husband and I were able to enjoy our meals and even saved us the appetizers we missed while we were taking photos. They noticed we were away from our seats during dessert to mingle with guests and even offered to pack up our desserts. Our guests loved the view of the water, as well as everyone spoke very highly of all of the food. This is a stunning venue with exceptional food and cocktails, complimented by their attentive staff.
    Special thanks to Kaylee and Kim, and of course Gyenya who made sure everything went perfectly and making our day extra special. We could not be happier about our choice to have our wedding at Umbrella Bar!

    10/10 Book this venue

    So extremely happy we chose The Umbrella Bar for our wedding venue. The staff were so responsive and went above and beyond to ensure our vision became a reality. As the pandemic and rules changed over the year, we were kept well informed. On the day of the wedding, everything flowed seamlessly with the schedule they drew up for us and we were able to enjoy every bit of the day. I've received so many compliments about how the food was the best the guests have ever had at a wedding, how impressed they were at the beverage options available, and how stunning the venue looked. The staff were polite and patient and I cannot thank them enough. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an amazing venue in Ottawa, ON.
