I love small intimate weddings, especially when they are in unique and stunning venues. Restaurant 18 provides just that. I personally would not go over 100 guests for a count because anything over and above that, it is very difficult to manoeuvre around easily. The ambience in this venue is stunning and with the couple's own decor, it is truly an amazing backdrop for weddings. Of course we need to talk about the food that your guests will be enjoying....amazing. Just yummy and absolutely a gourmet experience for all. It is located in the historic Byward Market which I love and the fact that your guests can explore downtown after the ceremony and before the reception starts. If envision a trendy restaurant with amazing decor and cuisine for your intimate wedding, then Restaurant should be on your short list.
