Bier Markt - Ottawa
They used to have sharing boards with lots of items, but now they only offer cheese and meat.
Disappointed. Otherwise the service is always pretty good if you're sitting towards the front of the restaurant. If you're at the back, you seem to get lost amongst the tables.
we had fun...but feel the table rules are a tad strict
Great place to meet up with friends! Food was excellent and the knowledgable staff friendly. Highly recommend!
The sharing platter did not have much on it, but the portions for the the main plates were large and filling.
This restaurant was pretty good and the food was very delicious, but the service was very mediocre and barely any attention was paid by our waitress. I see this is a common review online and so I think the restaurant should put more effort into training staff.
Really enjoyed the options and decor. The service was good and the food selection had something for everyone. Great selection of craft beers.
The service is terrific at the Bier Markt, Ottawa. I would recommend the burger. Great atmosphere for both large and small groups.
The service was timely and food was good. The mussels is amazing
My farmhouse salad had zero pecans in it, despite being listed in the menu description. Duck wings were very good. Calamari too.
The food was great and so was the service. There was a piece of gum stuck to the edge of my seat (who would do that?), and it got onto my pant leg. The server cleverly brought me some ice to apply to it, and it came right off. We found the music a bit too loud for our liking, so perhaps we will not come back during happy hour. The volume decreased at about the time we were leaving, which was shortly after 7:00 PM.
Nothing special and the food is okay at best. Good selection of beers and that is about it.
Good enough to spend time with an old friend. We went during happy hour, so drinks and apps were reasonably priced.
The waitstaff was kind and accommodating to my party of 8. The beers were amazing and the food was fantastic. I loved the beer pairings on the food menu and the overall feel of the place.
My daughter is vegan. You do not offer a lot of vegan options. For that reason we would not return.
I loved the $5 Mojito special it was so good, beer selection is amazing of course and the service was outstanding.
Consistently friendly and fast attentive service. Our waitress knew the beer menu quite well, but was not as familiar with the wine selection.
Average night out. Food was good, but it took a long time to get served and then get our food (over an hour). Dessert menu has three items - one of which was no longer available (server flip flopped between it being sold out and also that the menu was changing so certain items were not available).
The food we did eat was good and our server overall was very kind and sweet. The restaurant was quite full when we arrived so it was a good atmosphere.
Duck wings were delicious, pork schnitzel was disappointing: dry and tough. The braised red cabbage that came with it wasn’t great either.
We went on. Thursday between 5 and 7:00 p.m. the music level was too loud, we could not hear ourselves talk. Whack is too bad, since we really like this restaurant. We will probably not go back at this time due to the loud music. Will probably try lunch next time.
Good food, good service, good ambience. Not easy for someone who needs to eat gluten free here. For example, one of the only things on the menu that is adaptable to be GF are burgers. Not sure why they don't have gluten-free buns available for the burgers - seems like a standard offering at other similar places. Lettuce isn't really a good substitute for a bun!
The place is great and the food also. I would just correct the floor mop smell, which too many establishments suffer from.
Great service and good portions. Food was fresh and delicious.
Our group of 9 had a wonderful time and the flights of beer and wine allowed us all to try a selection of beverages :-)
I go there for the baked brussels sprouts! love the healthy menu choices, European flair, and drink specials. Sad that I didn't get a booth though, the open room is very loud.
I really love this restaurant for its beer selection. I am also a big fan of the the Snitzel, so I love going to this restaurant. I would recommend it.
Amazing! Serious is one of my favourite restaurants in Ottawa. Perfect for any size group or occasion!
Almost too many beer selections (so many to choose from). Server made great suggestions. Looking forward to Bier Markt's own brew (which is supposedly coming next month).
The thing i was disappointed about was, there was supposed to be a band??? Parking was an inconvenience.
It was mellow ambiance... for a Saturday nighT? Just loved the beer i had and the meal was excellent.
I will return but hope there will be more FUN!
Although the taste was good, the schnitzel needed more pounding/thinning. Also, after our food was delivered we didn’t hear from the server for ages. We wanted salt, pepper and vinegar for our frites, but by the time we could flag someone down, the fries were cold and the rest of the meal gone
Great experience at Bier Markt. We were 13 guests for a work lunch and everyone was happy. Service from Jenn was great and accommodating. Food was delish and we really enjoyed our time there. We had to be out by a certain time and they made sure we were. Thank you.
They were out of some food and beer items we ordered, and the server was friendly but there seemed to be some communication challenges, perhaps due to the fairly loud noise level. The schnitzel was over cooked and dry. Good beer selection.
The food was great and the service awesome! Thanks again!
Had reservations for 7 people but was seated in bar area with 2 little round tables pushed together on bar stools with no backs - hard on the back sitting for more than 2 hours. Asked for a different table - not able to move us. Server was polite but service was very slow, waited long time for drinks and food, one person did not get his meal when everyone else did. Food was mediocre - onion rings were soggy and cold, French fries were dry and overdone. One pre-dinner drink, shared appetizers, entree - Dinner took almost 2 1/2 hours - far too long. Disappointing.
Food is amazing and service was great 😁 we went for dinner the night before the army race and ended to going back for lunch the next day! 🍻
Despite the power outages affecting many areas of Ottawa, Bier Markt were offering a full menu. Yes, it was busy, but with guidance from the server we were able to select menu choices that came promptly and that were excellent. Good food, good beer and great company!
Went for a lunch with office coworkers. Service was prompt and friendly. Food portions were good; unfortunately somewhat disappointing. Fish was rather bland and uninteresting.
Great food and excellent service! The variety of beer is impressive and very helpfully matched with food pairing ideas. The ambiance was so warm and friendly we stayed longer than expected. We'll be back!
our experience was good, although when i made my reservation there was a section that was marked "occasion" and since it was my birthday dinner, i selected "birthday". Throughout our whole dining experience, not once was my birthday mentioned. Why ask for the occasion if it won't be acknowledged??
Beer was good food not so much, over cooked schnitzel, fish & chips with wimpy fries over cooked fish and doughy batter covering, Gouda beef dip was more bun than anything and how do you dip a massive bun in a tiny jar of gravy and then with only 4 desserts on the menu how do you run out of one
Went for lunch and waited over 45 minutes for our food even though the place was virtually empty (I guess they think people's lunch hours are unlimited). Despite the wait, they still managed to get two of the three orders wrong. Waitress seemed more interested in hanging out with the girls at the front of the restaurant than actually providing any kind of service. Maybe they should put some of those girls to work in the kitchen or actually paying attention to the customers. Food was o.k. but by far the slowest and worst service I've experienced in a restaurant in a long time. Whoever's managing this place needs to wake up.
