“Great food, excellent service.”
Reviewed 19 March 2017

Great menu selection, the food was very good, we ordered different plates to share in order to sample as many items on their menu, and all of them were great. The waitress was amazing, very friendly with a great sense of humour. We had a great time. I would highly recommend it.

Great wine list!!

The decor is however, very basic, it could use some improvement and add to the experience... it lacks ambiance.

“Great food. Awesome portions”
Reviewed 18 March 2017

I love this place. You can experience excellent cuisine and variety at the same sitting since they offer small plates without skimping on the quality and presentation.

“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.

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
