Yeah, you're one of us.

That’s a good thing. CITIZEN tries to fill that space between dining, gathering, being, enjoying – living. When you’re into more than just eating, drinking and chilling, you’re ready to be become a CITIZEN. Whatever you make of it, make it the most.

Rosé

Make it your own.

Generally walk-in for regular dining, we do however take a limited number bookings day of via the DINR app (look left) or by phone at 613 422 6505.

To say that CITIZEN is a unique place is an understatement. We’ve got the food chops and the drinks skills, no doubt, but, man, we’re so much more than that. Art installations, private events, corporate shindigs, parties, big groups, small gatherings, cocktails or sit-downs – WHATEVER. It’s all welcome here – host it, have us host it. Make it yours.

Make something happen

Thanks! We’ll get back to you ASAP.

This is not a reservation: You will be contacted to confirm your dining details.

Got a smaller group (6 to 14)? Just want to talk to a human? Call 613 422 6505.

Around the corner. Literally.

Actually around the corner from town., CITIZEN shares a kitchen and our community with locals and far-from-locals alike.

No, it wasn’t part of some master plan, but if we had to take the block, CITIZEN would be a great 2nd step. With the triumph of town., we knew we wanted to do something more – something different.

Walk in with friends and family OR book the whole joint for a private party. When you’re a CITIZEN, you make the rules.
