The Fish Market Restaurant
Fresh, simple with bell peppers & fine herbs & garlic butter Or sauted in our spicy smooth tomato Creole sauce loaded with southern spices
Cajun Salmon Salad
Fresh Salmon Fillet blackened with our southern spices, served warm over mixed greens with fresh pear slices, strawberries and candied walnuts tossed in our house creamy vinaigrette
Worst night waitress never wrote our order forgot food we ordered
i dont think we will be back at that restaurant
they lost a good customer
Looked promising from the outside but not worth the price. The lobster linguine was very heavy on the cream sauce and the rice pilaf was undercooked. Your best bet is to stick with the fish and chips. Service was attentive and friendly!
Great service from Chris.
Water dripping onto table from patched drain pipes In ceiling with buckets hung below the pipes. Claimed never happened before but then why the buckets and patches.
it was a very european experience, really enjoyed tHe atmospHere. tHe music was very cozy and tHe service was decent as well. tHey was good and tHe fires were excellent. would recommend if looking for a fancy nigHt!
The food took a long time to prepare and it didn’t taste very good. It wasn’t worth the money this time.
Main course was over cooked. We paid for Valentine’s Day dinner. Apps were good, but that expensive main course of lobster, scallops, salmon and shrimp was a huge let down. Overcooked and just not good for what you would expect from a seafood restaurant.
Hostess really disorganized and was putting us to sit next to the door with my mom who is in her 70s and it was -30 outside
They said it’s not cold and tried not to. Hey get us another table and room 3 people 5 mins to make a plan
Food came out cold and some warm and super slow
Over priced for what you get
The restaurant was freezing, the server was not attentive and sooo slow. The Valentine’s Day dinner was a serving for one that we shared we left cold and hungry over 2 hours later
The surf and turf platter is definitely not big enough for 2 people. & 13$ for 5 very small shrimp tempura is crazy. Every single host was very unorganized and it took a long time to be sat at our table. The tables are WAY to close together, I felt uncomfortable talking to my partner because I felt the person next to us could hear us. We asked to move tables and the host didn't even take a look to see if anything was available, she just bluntly said no. Very unorganized restaurant and we definitely won't be returning
The halibut was deep fried and arrived in a basket. Not a pretty sight when celebrating a Valentines Dinner with that special person. It was mushy with little flavour. Should have ordered the citrus salmon, which may have been presented on a plate. Will try a different restaurant next time.
Great restaurant! Love the place! Finishing the week with a great meal is always a plus! :D
Delicious food and great service! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Just as good as I remember
Thanks Sheri so glad to have you back in! Come back soon for Monday All You Can Eat Mussels :) Barb & Team
Food is not as good as expected. Shrimp was overcooked.
The food was phenomenal! Very attentive service and very accommodating to my allergy.
Thanks Debbie! So glad we took good care of you. We are always happy to accommodate allergies, we take our guests safety seriously. Please join us again soon. Barb & Team

Thanks Robert! So glad you enjoyed us and we took good care of you. Hope to see you again soon. Barb & Team
This is the second time we have had dinner here. The first time, the food was great for both my wife and I (she had the halibut and I had the fisherman's stew). This time, mine was good (mussels in tomato sauce), but my wife's was ordinary at best (fish and chips). I had a taste of my wife's, and you could probably do as good at home with frozen fish from a supermarket. We will likely be back for lunch, but probably not for dinner.
The food and service was great. Price is just a little bit too much but ok. The ambience I think in summer time would be great. But because we went there New year’s eve dinner plus it was slushy and snowing outside, it didn’t let me enjoy much the surrounding (Just because of the weather) Overall, almost perfect! I will be recommending of course!
We wanted a low key, fairly quiet restaurant with great food - this was spot on. The staff was great.
Thanks so much ! Barb & Team
Excellent experience! Will visit again upon my return to Ottawa!
Hi Ron! So glad you enjoyed us, please come back soon! Barb & Team
Good food fine service . Enjoyed a meal with friends here recently.
thanks so much Linda!! Hope to see you again soon. Barb & Team
I can see why The Fish Market has such a wonderful reputation! It might seem odd for Maritimers to go to an inland restaurant for seafood, but we found that once wasn't enough. So enjoyed everything!
WOW!!! Janet what a compliment we appreciate your accolades more than you know!! We strive to be the best inland Maritime restaurant possible. Barb & Team
Food was wonderful. All meals at table were enjoyed thoroughly. Service was great. Would recommend to anyone.
Thanks Kelly! We really appreciate your kind words.... please come back soon. Barb & Team
Fish stew is awesome.
Hi David Thanks so much we are so proud of our New Brunswick Stew! Barb
Service was a bit slow maybe they were busy
It is a little dirty and the food is not so fresh
Was there with the family for my Mother’s 70th birthday dinner. The service was great, the waitress was very attentive and pleasant. Food was delicious. Would definitely return.
Our reception was gracious and most courteous a welcoming warm and intimate..the ambient atmosphere was of a lovely casual fine dining trattoria...our waitress gracious and affable, charmingly informative; Our food was amazing! I thank you for this wonderful dining experience.. jca
Food was subpar
Waiter was very rude, condescending. Spoiled our special occasion.
This was me first time visiting the Fish Market. Highly recommend it! I will be back next time in Ottawa
This restaurant is outstanding! The food is fresh and delicious, and our food was served quickly after being ordered. Our server, John, was fantastic... very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. 5 stars for sure!
Good fresh seafood. Great service.
Lovely warm wood decor. Terribly uncomfortable corner seating. Round table pushed both of us into angular hard surfaces. Service was friendly and very fast. Asked if pepper was available and the micro amount that was ground (with a quick flourish) over the food platters ended up mostly on the table. Note to self: Bring your own pepper grinder next time. We ordered mussels and frites (with leek and mushroom sauce) as main dish and breaded calamari as appetizer, both to share. Neither serving was what would be considered generous. Calamari was crispy and nicely-seasoned. The mussels had average-sized shells with the tiniest amount of meat inside..and I'm from the Bay of Fundy area so maybe I'm spoiled by tablespoon-size mussel meat inside the shell. These mussels were in the teaspoon-size. Sauce was meh. Frites were meh. Not bad but certainly not great. Would I return? Not if I was the person picking up the bill.
Last evening of our Ottawa vacation we wanted a nice dinner experience.
Great service fun ambiance varied food selection, even a number of evening specials.
We weren’t rushed food was delivered hot and delicious.
We had supper here twice in 4 days. The menu is biased towards fish, naturally. The restaurant is spacious, has pleasant decor and is relatively quiet. We ate on the ground floor without seeing either into the basement or to the upper floor. So there is a sizeable staff; service was very good. We much enjoyed the food we chose. The restaurant is a cut above the many in the Market area. We were glad to have booked as the restaurant is understandably popular.
Overall Food was very good. The only complaint is that the vegetables we had were somewhat overcooked.
The restaurant is excellent and the fresh fish is definitely a must. The customer service was great and seamless throughout a busy Saturday night. The serving staff look after all the needs at the table and promptly delivers refills or other items. The chef really knows their seafood. You will enjoy the experience.
Thank you so very much for visiting us and the awesome review and rating! We appreciate you taking the time to share :) Kindly Barb & Team
Der Fisch war völlig durch und vertrocknet, kaum zu genießen und die Knusprige Panade war ein undefinierbares geschmackloses Pulver.
Leider ein Reinfall👎👎👎
Hello thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Our fish is prepared with care and we are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy yours. I hope you made mention to the server and management put things right. If not I invite you to connect with me personally Barb@fishmarket.ca
