Excellent food and service. Nice atmosphere. Low, instrumental, background music. You could talk to your table mates. A wonderful dining experience. We're going back.

What You'll Get

To make un-fine wine, simply place grapes beneath a silk pillow, repeatedly mash your head against it, and then wring the pillowcase into a nearby mouth. Taste traditionally produced fine wines with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale cuisine and drinks at the Main Street Cellar Wine Bar, located on Manotick Main Street.

The Main Street Cellar keeps its innards packed with a venerable variety of wine bottles and an accompanying menu of eclectic eats. Commence consumption with an aromatic peach arugula salad ($9), where a balsamic reduction, Ontario peaches and goat cheese get intimate atop a bed of arugula, or catch the PEI mussels ($10), a roasted-garlic and white-wine-sauce vehicle that exhibits the innate talents of sundried tomatoes and fresh mussels. The Mariposa Farms duck ($25) introduces orange-curry couscous to a maple-syrup-glazed duck, and the homemade ravioli ($19) is stuffed, like a delicious teddy bear, with butternut squash and herbed goat cheese and bathed in a sage and white-wine sauce. An extensive wine list upgrades any meal with wines by the glass and bottle.

Oversized black leather chairs, exposed brick, and spotlighted wine-bottle displays along the walls create a modern yet comfortable feel, much like the voice on a GPS system, within this regal looking building. A sommelier on staff is available to suggest wine pairings and the eatery offers an outdoor patio for the enjoyment of nature enthusiasts and clairvoyant leaf whisperers. Reservations are recommended.

About Main Street Cellar Wine Bar

Executive Chef Amos Jarbeau and Sous Chef Ian Sunstrum wonder what to serve for tonight's special. Instead of looking in the cooler, they walk across the street to the local butcher and check out the available whole cuts of meat. Afterward, the duo heads toward the street corner, where a Roots and Shoots farm stand displays freshly picked organic produce. It's a typical day for the chefs, who continually tailor Main Street Cellar Wine Bar's menu to what's in season and what's local.

To enhance the nuances of the changing dishes, Main Street's four sommeliers—who include owners Paul Paton and Kim Burns—recommend vintages from a continually evolving wine list that spans regions from France to British Columbia. Paton and Burns play upon guests’ senses within a home built in the 1880s, where a varying decor of exposed brick walls, gleaming wood accents, and cushy black leather chairs with tufted backs creates different feels in each room. But Main Street's most popular space is its casual back courtyard, where diners enjoy seclusion from the main road and Ottawa's cutthroat paparazzi.
