Wonderful place a night out. Food was fantastic. Service was efficient and timely, it was not intrusive on our conversation. I came here on the recommendation of a friend and now I'm recommending Oz Kafe..

Everything was outstanding from start to finish! Drinks, service, food and atmosphere. Our server Damir was attentive, friendly and professional. We had the beef and it was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend coming for a meal or even just a drink. Thank you Oz Kafe for a wonderful evening!

Really busy. Good for couples and small groups. Tasty menu. Short staffed as all restaurants are nowadays. My steak was perfectly cooked and my wife's porkchop was tender and flavourful. All the sides were yummy as well.

We visited Oz recently for the first time in several years, due to an abundance of caution related to the COVID19 pandemic. We were reassured by the health protocols implemented by the restaurant. The food was excellent, as we fully expected, and very attractively presented. The menu was a very suitable selection for a cold autumn evening. Our server, Sacha, was helpful and attentive and contributed greatly to our enjoyment of the occasion.
We are very pleased that Oz is flourishing and we will visit again before long.

Food was tasty and unique but a little salty for my taste. Beet and pear salad was amazing as was the cod. Not a great selection of desserts.

Benjamin was an outstanding server, very warm, funny and helpful in his recommendations. The squash risotto was delicious. A bit disapointed by the scallops and sides served with a beautiful St-Ambroise Cheese and crostini. All in all, I will certainly go back to try more options.

I had the Grilled Enright Beef 6oz Sirloin and it was amazing. Very flavorful and decent portion. Although I wanted more but this wasn’t because portion was small but because it was actually THAT GOOD. Would highly recommend

We loved our waitress (she has an accent but I don’t know her name) and the food was delicious and creative. Not your typical fare - so refreshing. The taste combinations were like a little party on my palette. The lighting and ambiance were just right for couples or two friends enjoying good conversation.

Food was fabulous. Prices are reasonable.The old stone building is a lovely setting. However OZ needs some more curtains or room dividers to hide supplies & the kitchen from view.

Oz jade is tucked away in a quiet little corner of byword market
The setting is cozy and charming with a nice balance of old and new
The menu is small and well curated with an excellent range of options
The self selection for the charcuterie board makes for a great start
The portions are good and not too excessive
For my main course I had a fish that was delicious
My partner had a steak dinner that was so tender and delicious
The service is very professional and knowledgeable . They were able to guide us to select the best pairing of food and wine
Definitely will be back there

My wife and I came for dinner last Friday and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. My wife had the Icelandic cod and she loved it. I had the pork rib ends and they were also very well done. Our server Yuvall was attentive and extremely courteous. Thanks for a great meal.

What a beautiful Ottawa ByWard Market Restaurant to celebrate my birthday in style. I was greeted warmly by Ms. Yuval and treated special during my entire meal. Since it was my first time dining here I had to of course dive into the full Beef Sirloin experience accompanied by a delicious Henry of Pelham, Speck Family Reserve, Baco Noir. The sirloin steak melted in my mouth. I exclaimed "that I wanted to take Chef home with me back to Muskoka!" Thank-you to everyone Front of House and Back of House at Oz Kafe who made my birthday so wonderful. I will be back again and again.

The food was good but it took an hour. Plus the server seemed not to care at all, she brought our food with no apologies and never gave us an update as we were waiting hungrily for our food. She was quite unfriendly which was too bad because it could have a been a good experience despite the food being late
