“Not the first time I have been pleased with this place”
Reviewed 15 March 2017

I am in Ottawa rarely but each time I try to make it to Play. Located in the Bytown Market it is easy to get to. It feature small plates of excellent food, perfect for lunch, which is when I go. The wine selection matches the food in quality, lots of choice. Service was first rate. It made for an excellent start to our Gallery visit.

“Very good food and service”
Reviewed 14 March 2017

A nice evening with the family to celebrate a birthday. Small portion but fun to share with other and taste a bit of everything. Wanted to try it for a while and wasn't disappointed

“Did not disappoint!”
Reviewed 12 March 2017 via mobile

We live in Northern NY so "escaped" the US for a few days. We researched restaurants and decided to try Play Food & Wine our first night. The idea of small plates and wine pairings sounded wonderful. We didn't have a reservation so we're given the choice of sitting at the bar or upstairs overlooking the kitchen. We chose the latter and had soooo much fun. The chefs were wonderful chatting with is and making recommendations. The food was marvelous!

“Loved the concept”
Reviewed 5 March 2017 via mobile

We went for lunch and enjoyed the lunch special of 2 dishes for $22. This is a perfect place if you want to share and especially good if you want to try a few plates but dont have a huge appetite. Service was good . Wine choices by the glass were good. Food was excellent
