Reinvigorating pride in Canada’s multicultural background and shared heritage through seasonally-inspired food combined with an exclusive wine list. At Aiana, humble roots are planted in a desire to bring the abundance of Canada’s food products – many of which grow wild in or around Ottawa – to the forefront of flavourful dishes. Traditions and techniques long forgotten (yet well loved) are restored at Aiana. Not only in tribute to what’s been practiced and procured by our nation’s peoples for thousands of years, but also in celebration of the one thing capable of uniting friends, family, and foes alike: food.
Being a progressive and socially responsible business, we have chosen to be a living wage employer. Aiāna was the very first restaurant that was certified as a living wage employer in Ottawa. We take pride in our extremely talented team of professionals. The financial well-being of Team Aiāna is one of the most important measures of our success.
