It was an embarrassing disappointment. I booked a brunch experience for friends who were visiting from out of town. When we got there, we were informed that certain items on the menu (including the chicken and waffles which I specifically came for) were not available and even the potatoes would not be ready for another 30mins. We ordered 2 coffees just to settle in and when they came, one had floating bits (seemed like dust from the cup). Needless to say we didn’t stay and thankfully found another reservation in tbe market.
Food was not the greatest. Drinks were not the best. I’ve been twice and so far nothing has changed.
Very good experience and atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. Flatbread is delicious
Went for Sunday Brunch. Food/portion was delicious.
2 negative points: music a bit loud and lots of wasps
We wanted to ignore the negative reviews and try B2B, but unfortunately it wasn’t a great experience. I thought everyone saying the music was too loud was dramatic, but the music inside was SO loud to the point where we left because we couldn’t even talk to our table. It also took 30 min to get one drink. The ambiance was great but the noise level made it unenjoyable. Hoping it was a one off and maybe the patio would be a better experience.
Beautiful restaurant service was good not great....I did enjoy my time though :)
Went in the afternoon, place was a bit shabby, server was wonderful, we had a flatbread,kettle chips (cold and pretty sure they were out of a bag) and a few cocktails which were good.
Horrible service. We ordered a bunch of entree about 6 to share and instead of having the common sense to bring them as they we ready they made us wait an hour and brought them all at once. We had a really small table so they couldn’t fit all but they didn’t care and just shoved all of them in the table.
The host was unfriendly and not ready at opening. Half my food was cold and the rest bland. The Caesar mix poor quality. Thank goodness for the peppy waitress.
They didn’t have a proper table arrangement for us initially, we waited for around 10 minutes to get the table cleaned. They charged us extra for no reason.
We arrived During happy hour, ordered drinks off the happy hour menu, but ended up paying full price after spending several hours that took us past happy for all our drinks - not cool
Moving daughter to University.
Food was a bit bland.
It’s noisy inside. A lot of people in a small area. Better to eat outside if possible.
Great food, vibe and the interior design of the restaurant was absolutely beautiful
It was terribly disorganised. We booked a week ahead, re-confirmed through OpenTable the day before and even confirmed over the phone on the day, yet they had trouble finding our reservation. Our table was ready so they stuck us in a lounge out the back for 20 minutes. Then we were moved to the front outdoor area to sit amongst stacked tables & chairs with no covid separation from other tables. The people waiting behind us were already seated. There was a table of 8-9 people next to us who were really drunk and walking around continuously without masks and bumping our table and pushing back their chairs and bumping our table. Our server was fantastic though. She kept apologising for the drunk people. We were keen to try the keto menu and the flatbread was good although it came our almost cold (at this stage we just wanted it all to be over so we didn’t say anything) and I had the chicken & chaffles. Chaffles are supposed to be cheese melted on a waffle iron but the ‘chaffles’ here are just a thin omelette wrap - still keto but not chaffles. The chicken was ok but it was a bit dry… need some keto BBQ sauce ! My wife had the keto burger. Keto bread can be dense and this was no exception. It didn’t come out hot either. The warmest thing we had was the chardonnay which came out slightly cooler than room temperature. It was great to go out and we laughed about how bad it was driving home. We won’t be going back. It needed a good clean.
Service was fantastic and food was delicious and well present. Cozy chill spot for a date night
Very nice and very good! Very good service and ambiance
Wonderful time, our waitress Jesse was amazing!
Very poor service, slow, and didn’t listen to accommodations
A lot of bees outside, food wasn’t hot and fresh. Asked for fries got a salad instead cause their were no more fries and weren’t Informed before hand
Minus the bees - it was great!
We had a reservation for an outdoor table. We were seated on the patio. Half our party was on a couch, the other two were on two chairs. The couch was substantially lower than the table, so for those of us sitting on the couch the table was up at chest level. It was very uncomfortable.
Additionally, we ordered a GF dish and were told it had no cheese on it. It came with two types of cheese so had to be sent back due to an allergy.
Finally, the server's mask kept falling under her nose.
It was great, a little disappointed with the how long we could stay as I had purchased a bottle that I had to drink a lot quicker than I would have liked, but over all was a great time
Chicken and waffles portion was large but the chicken was extremely dry, lobster mac and cheese was tiny portion for 30 bucks, not worth it. waitress was nice though, it was hard to hear her though over the loud music
Got place at the back, ambiance wasn’t very nice. Music was low. Some girls where just starting their shift and was setting up and talking loudly about going to Vancouver for a vacation. My server was really nice, made the experience better
Had a good experience at B2B last night. We had reservations, they were thorough in confirming our reservation. Upon arrival we were quickly seated and the server tended to us right away. I was pleasantly surprised by the food. The fig olive and goat cheese flatbread was decadent, I highly recommend it. Plus they have really tasty cocktails 🍸
The ambience is great, although I must say that the music inside was extremely loud. They also have rotating pot lights that shine right into your face which can be unpleasant while trying to have dinner. Altogether, I highly recommend trying B2B.
We booked table outside- were shown to a table inside- manager had to intervene to find us an inside table— very steep stairs to bathrooms which are just outside the kitchen????
I LOVE this place! Having grown up in New York City it’s great to have a funky place right here in Ottawa - my home now- for amazing drinks, delicious beautifully presented food and awesome service! Will definitely be back!
Amazing energy, food, service and dining experience! Vegan friendly options as well!
Staff is very polite and food was amazing! Great Keto options as well!
I had a great time and our waitress did an amazing job
Unfortunately the music is too loud. We went for dinner at 7pm and felt we were in a night club. We enjoy music while dinning but if we can’t hear or talk to each other during dinner service, this is unpleasant for us.
Server was good, pleasant and friendly. Food was subpar for us; the value was just not there. The restaurant looks nice.
Fabulous food and a great vibe!!!!!The service was truly amazing .. thank you!
My daughter and I absolutely loved our first night out dining in the Market . The food and service was amazing . The only thing I would recommend is to maybe lower the music . It was a bit loud as we tried to talk , other then that , we had an amazing time !
Enjoyable dinner experience. Overall dinner was 4 ⭐... the Brooklyn Cheesecake was an indisputable 5 ⭐.
Service wasn’t great, took them 15 minutes to seat us even with a reservation. No server came to the table to offer us water, I had to ask, portions are quite small. Decor inside is beautiful though.
My new favourite patio to enjoy great food... relax and drink in the Byward Market life... Be sure to order the olives as appetizers!
Over priced, bad quality food. Good tasting drinks but too expensive. 17$ for a cocktail is too much.
Good food vibe and service, diverse staff and all round good experience will be back
I love coming here !! Always a fun time. Workers are very friendly, food is amazing!!
