    You’re paying for the view. Everything about this place is trying to be upscale to justify the insane prices. Absolutely horrible food and drinks at absurd prices. Do not waste your time here.

    Hello, Firstly, I want to thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Unfortunately, it is evident that we did not meet your expectations. We pride ourselves on what we do and what/how we serve, and it is uninspiring for us to see our menu come across as "horrible." However, every feedback is appreciated, and I will make sure that we will look into it accordingly. Kind regards, Can Taspinar Director of Food & Beverage Andaz Ottawa Byward Market

    Very nice restaurant with amazing view !Good food and ambiance but the menu is every limited. Not enough choice. According to me it’s more a place to have a drink and go eat somewhere else.

    We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Spectacular view. Very limited menu - only the chef’s board was available although it was good. You are limited to 1-1/2 hour time segments. Outdoor patio area looked nice but it was too cold to use. Professional service.

    It was disappointing as due to staffing issues the only food served was an over priced cheese tray . 6 oz wine was $18 per glass. However, the view was spectacular and the service was great .

    Good view, poor service. Came for cocktails on a Saturday and was only able to put one order in, the second order we waited for half an hour and the bartender still hadn't started our drinks and we unfortunately had to leave as our reservation had ended. Service was also very slow from the waitress as well.

    I booked a reservation for brunch for my birthday over a week in advance for 11:45am. I was not aware of the fixed menu & $55 set price because it is only mentioned at the bottom of open table. The morning of my reservation I was informed that I had to come at 11am if I wanted to sit for more than 45mins. So disappointing:(

    The canapés were just okay. Charcuterie and pastries were good but that’s hard to mess up. Breakfast poutine bar was really good. Dessert selection was a little disappointing, especially considering the cost, however it’s still a ton of food served over and over so you can definitely get your money’s worth. Just wish it included another mimosa in the price. Seems a bit steep to only include one. Service was fantastic. Waitresses were very friendly and attentive.

    When seated was told immediately that we had to be gone in 90 minutes. We knew from reservation- was off putting to be told that as we sat. Was way too loud - including one of the waiters yelling (friendly, but loud, loud) and music was to the point that you had to shout across the table. Maybe okay for 10 pm, but not for dinner.

    The best thing about this bar is the view. Keep in mind that in the winter months it is dark when the bar opens. The city lights look pretty but there are reflections on the windows because of the indoor lights and televisions at the bar that can obscure it. The only food they are serving now is a meat and cheese platter which was delicious and paired well with a glass of wine. Not a huge selection of wines by the glass though. Service was great and the vibe was nice.

    We had some friends visiting from Toronto & booked a reservation at 10:30 pm at this bar which was a complete disappointment. Before you book, understand you’re on an hour 1/2 time slot. We were seated 20min late and surprised to learn from our server that we only had 1 hour and 10min before we the next table arrived. Service was terrible, the staff was unfriendly and our server came to the table once to take our order and never returned. I even had to walk to the bar and ask for my bill. Ambiance was subpar at best with poor lighting and absolutely no music playing until 10 min before we had to leave when it finally came on. The only positive aspect of the evening was the view of Ottawa.

    Second time going and I thought it was going to be better but it seems it always falls short. I Had a reservation and wasn't directed properly and was just ignored. So that didn't start well. But I moved past it. The service was alright but nothing special. the people at the table beside us just left after waiting to get served. The ambiance seems like your living room, TV AND background noise of people talking. Again not bad but just regular. So much potential but falls short The good thing is the view and that's why they are still open.

    Hi, lovely venue, if I had a few suggestions it would be that the table lighting was too bright, making us feel that we were being interrogated, and then the music was a little too loud so it didn’t lend itself to an intimate setting with both the over bright lighting and loud-ish music. Also, the bright lighting caused a reflective glare on the windows, interrupting the lovely view outside. Also, the Copper Mule drink was served in stainless steel cups and Moscow Mules aren’t as sweet.

    I was very excited to try this venue, having heard really good things. But for me, sadly it fell short. I finally got a reso, and surprised my fiancé with 'date night'. I had hoped we would be on the patio, esp with a reso made well in advance. But sadly, we were told it was full, and were seated indoors. Inside was nice, lounge-y, but nothing spectacular. A decent soundtrack playing in the background. It was however well spaced, pandemic-wise, alleviating any worry. That said, I would say you go for the view, poss the atmosphere, but not much else. Our drinks were 'weak' to say the least. And at their high prices, left lots to be desired. If given the opportunity, I would 'maybe' go again. It's a novelty venue, imo. But the view can't be beat!!

    A fantastic view of Ottawa - which really delicious food. More effort could be given into seating arrangements during Covid. As a table of two we were given one very awkward bench to share, which didn’t allow us to look at each other. Our backs where against a planter box which wasn’t comfortable. A heater was brought out but it had no gas. Again, great view and food, just a little unprepared. 😊

    The view is great, but beyond that it wasn't anything insanely special. Having to sit on pretty much a bench (not even a dining table) and stare directly at another group across from you is a little bit awkward. Everything we drank and ate could have easily been just as good if not better from a different restaurant that didn't have a view so that is pretty much all your paying for. This restaurant is trying way to hard to be boujie for its own good. If the food and drinks matched how good the view was, then maybe I'd come back, but I have a feeling this is due to management issues that won't change any time soon.

    Hands down the best view in the city. Beautiful patio with spacious booths and individual fire places. We ordered a pitcher of red sangria and would not order it again. The sangria tasted more like grape juice, overly sweet. Overall beautiful patio. Would definitely visit again.
