Great food and excellent wine pairings. Service was spot on. Great place to go with friends and share good times. The only reason it's 4 stars is the price point. My suggestion would that the wine pairings be proportionate to the food serving. Each glass is 14$, it adds up when your having multiple plates which is what the experience is suppose to be. Other than that it was amazing! More...

I was blown away by how completely prepared our server was to list out gluten free options. My partner recently moved to Ottawa and we had been struggling to find accommodating restaurants. On top of that, the design of the menu and the wine pairings are so fun and perfect for friends who love to share food and take their time. More...

Been here plenty of times, but my dinner tonight was so good I had to post here. My duck breast and charcuterie platter were absolutely beautiful both visually and in terms of taste. Ended with the maple ricotta tart which is the stuff of dreams. The perfect little burst of berries, pie crust, and maple. Crazy good! More...

Great restaurant in the heart of The Byward Market in Ottawa. Small plates is there motto, recommendation of 2 per person to equal a main.Server Nigel was very knowledgeable of the menu and the wines. Wine pairings are offered with each dish.Plates are very well presented and taste just as good,pace of service was fantastic. A very relaxing dinner with great food More...

Wonderful staff, fantastic food, but more important than anything: they were all allergy aware & able to accommodate us without any problems. It’s a real treat when we can dine out (as opposed to just “eating out!”) and relax. We will definitely be back. More...

My absolute favourite restaurant! They handled our GLUTEN FREE and DAIRY FREE meal with the utmost care and concern, marking what we could eat on the menu so that we could easily navigate it. They food and wine pairing suggestions are superb. I'm not that knowledgeable on wine but every time I'm there, I love it! The food it just absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is really nice.

Le 2 pour 25 $ pour le lunch est très avantageux. J'y suis allée une dizaine de fois. Très déçue cette fois-ci. Un des plats manquait clairement d'assaisonnement, le rendant très ordinaire. Nouvelle politique décevante : il faut maintenant payer 3 $ pour avoir un bout de pain pour tremper dans les excellentes sauces. Nouveauté : le vin n'est plus servi en format 3 on, ce qui nous permettait de prendre un verre de 3 on par plat. Les verres coûtent entre 12 et 16 $. Depuis un certain temps, aucun effort ne semble fait pour recruter du personnel bilingue, ce qui devrait aller de soi pour le Marché By. More...

We were just passing through town for the night and looking for a late, light meal that would accommodate our mixed vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free needs. Our waiter Nigel especially wowed us with his sommelier-esque descriptions for his wine recommendations as they didn't offer California wines and I wasn't familiar with anything on their list. I have the most restricted diet and ordered warm olives, mushroom soup. unbelievably dairy free w/o the creme fraiche topper. The flavors were rich and creamy like no other mushroom soup I've had before with a luscious texture. My 15 yr old daughters gushed over the pillowy gnocchi with basil cream sauce and shared 2 orders it was so good with a little fresh bread on the side. My husband is a dairy free carnivore and was delighted with his tuna carpaccio (minus the cheese) dish and another steak serving that I don't recall. Nigel was quick to recommend another wine when the taste he brought us of what I selected didn't suit him. This is the only restaurant I've ever seen offer chocolate as dessert by the darkness%. We had plans to try dessert at another venue, else I would have been all over their darkest! I'll close by saying Yelp served us well once again. This is a classic wine bar with delicious small plates with something for everybody. It's worth every penny! More...

Went with a group of 4 and did the lunch deal of 2 small plates for $25 per person with a shared charcuterie plate. Each dish was delicious and several people said the mushroom soup was the best they had ever had. The meal took quite a while, however, due to a large party slowing down the kitchen (1.5 hrs for lunch). More...

Wow is all I can say. It was absolutely lovely. Our waiter Nigel, was so knowledgeable and accommodating with everything we needed or had questions about. So helpful and informative. The food was delicious, with the small portions we could share every dish and walked away stuffed because of how much we ate. I was so impressed considering we were just stopping by Ottawa and casually stopped for a bite to eat. Definitely would recommend and wish they had a Play where we lived. More...

I’m pretty tough and can be critical but I have to say when I enjoy something, and let me tell you, this restaurant is amazing! The restaurant is warm and elegant. We didn’t know what to order so we went for it and ordered a bunch of different things, everything we ate was great, seriously, everything. The moment we walked in we were received by friendly hostesses, and our server Nigel was excellent (a true professional). The only thing that was a bit off putting was the bartender preparing the charcuterie board. The items are behind the bar and she quickly assembled the items, scooping items up with a spoon and the helping it onto a board with her fingers. After preparing the board she then went and wiped down the bar and moved around the bar stools. When she went back behind the bar she got another order for another board...and she first went and washed her hands before getting to it (YES!) More...

If you’re looking for a warm, bustling ambience right in the Byward Market, then visit Play for small tasty bites to share among friends. We tried a range of Play’s savory options and loved them all but highlights included the duck wings with a sticky, finger-licking sauce, devine, light gnocchi, and chick peas with lamb sausage. For a sweet way to end the meal, try the baked Alaska for its soft, marshmallow-like meringue. Service was friendly, but at times a bit slow. A good place to share good food with friends. Would recommend. More...

Nice atmosphere, both cosy and trendy at the same time, can become a little bit too loud with a full restaurant. Many of the dishes are easily shared. The dishes were of different quality and taste, but in general really nice. Great wine list. Service was attentative but also not too visible (which I believe is a good thing). More...

Summary: I was told this was a Tapas restaurant. Food quality was outstanding, but they don't understand what Tapas isTapas came out of a bar. It started as a piece of bread on top of a drink so the patron wasn't drinking on an empty stomach. Then it became a piece of bread with a piece of cheese, then cheese and meat, then it kept growing and evolving with each establishment trying to out do the next with creative foods to top the drink. The foods became the star, but they maintained their finger-food style. And the foods are so special that they are designed to be shared.Here's my observations about our meal at Play:-There were no serving spoons; how can a dish be shared without a way to pass it around. -Food was placed in front of people instead of in the middle of the table-No emphasis on drinking (tapas was born in a bar) -No stacks of small serving dishes. It's not necessary, but if you are trying a bunch of different finger foods, like a buffet, it's nice to have fresh dishes to put them on-The server wanted to take all the food orders at once as opposed to ordering multiple dishes over the course of the evening -I was surprised to see French fries as one of the sides with a meat...French fries are much too mundane for Tapas-the choice of dishes was not designed to be shareable. What am I supposed to do with thin slices of meat? It didn't come with crackers, although there was bread available. I don't know, but the presentation just didn't come off as a finger food.-The pricing of the dishes was not designed for expensive appetizers (which is what I expected of Tapas), but rather each one seemed meal-priced.Let me finish by circling back to the food quality: it was very very good...just not tapas More...

Play is a unique restaurant where the quality of the food far exceeds what you can make at home. The presentation of the plates, the friendliness of the staff, and the general ambience make for a pleasant dining experience. The cost is well worth the meal! Go Play, you won't regret it. More...

As always, the service, food, and wine were excellent. Friends were visiting from out of town. I was able to get a last minute reservation at the time of my choosing and they even accommodated my special request to have a table off in the corner as we had a 9-year-old with us. I am gluten-free and was able to find a number of items on the menu that I could eat. Have been eating there for years and will continue to do so. More...

We went to Play on Tuesday and had a stellar experience. The food was excellent as usual but the service was out of this world. Candace and Shelby were extremely nice and spoiled us when we told them we were celebrating an important milestone. Our glasses were topped off by their delightful Blanc de Beckta signature sparkling wine and we had the pleasure to taste their baked Alaska dessert. Thank you to both of you for infusing even more magic into an already memorable night! More...

The journey which this restaurant took us was amazing. This was one of the best meal we had in Canada. They like to change the menu frequently so probably you will not the find the meals in the menu today. Let me start with mixed charcuterie plate (pork creton+prosclutto +genoa+saucssion sec). I want to specifically recommend Prosciutto, Italian style, dry-cured ham that is usually thinly sliced and served uncooked. Second recommendation is pork creton, one of the delicious Canadian speciality, pork meat containing onions and spices. As the main dish I ordered duck liver mousse with cherry molasses and grilled challah. This was not a simple duck paste. It was prepared with so many integrants that it deserves to be main dish. It is a small portion dish of course so don't expect to be full with just this one. We also ordered grilled halloumi which was OK. As wine, we ordered Cabernet Sauvignon '16, Girasole . It was, dry, full bodied and a bit fruity. Went well with the plate.Our table was on the second floor, just in front of the open kitchen so it was also interesting to experience the busy kitchen. You don't get this chance a lot so try to book your table close to the kitchen. Their effort through out the night was worth mentioning. Not one second to breath. Unbelievable! It is for sure an expensive restaurant. I gave 5 start to many restaurants but I rate them based on my taste to price ratio. This restaurant deserves 5 start. It does not disappoint you. More...

Great food - quiet spot in a busy area Was here with six people connected to a conference at the Shaw Centre nearby. Highly recommend booking table on the upper floor if you want to hear people talk in your party. Food was outstanding - small plates place. Little on the pricey side but it’s the Market and this spot is closer to the conference centre. Snow storm when I was there and the short walk was a bonus. More...

We had the Valentine's 3 course set menu with wine pairings. The duck was phenomenal, best I've had anywhere. The service was very good. However, the portions were ridiculously stingy. We thought it was just as well since we were going to have dessert, until dessert showed up and it was just 1 small dessert to share. Good food but overpriced. More...

Went here for dinner with my bf, we ordered a plate with duck liver , a cheese platter, gnocchi dish, a tofu curry rice dish, and a pasta dish, and two alcoholic drinks and it came out to be 112$. Fantastic quality food with fresh ingredients, the gnocchi was my personal favorite but everything was wonderful. The staff was super friendly. No complaints in all aspects. Atmosphere was good as well, with little candles on every table. Overall great experience. More...

Great lunch. Go get the 25$ for two plates deal, it's a good sized lunch. Had the skirt steak and frites (well seasoned), the duck liver mousse and challah (perfect), grilled haloumi, and pineapple pork ribs (like a sweet and sour jerk marinade). The food was excellent. The decor brings the place down. The tables are nice, the chairs look like they got them at a Walmart (black faux leather and chrome legs). The decor does NOT match the food. More...

P

Pete Zoutis

30 January 2019

Very nice place for dinner. Tapas-y type plates means you can try more items. Standout dishes were the Gnocchi and Duck liver pate. The Gnocchi was quite possibly the best I've ever tasted (up to this point La Lampada in Rome held the standard in my view). Very good plates were the Beef Carpaccio and Cod. The fish cakes fell short in our opinion as they seems somewhat bland with very little fish in them. Price-wise, the plates are on the expensive side for tapas style but you'll understand why when you taste them - high quality and very flavourful. More...

I choose to try Play Food & Wine because the restaurant features a vegan menu in addition to the regular menu.From the vegan menu, I opted for the tempura broccoli that I paired with a glass of Alentejo Paulo Laureano (Vinhas Velhas, Portugal). Then I went with the seasonal vegan creation, which was a crispy tofu that I paired with a glass of Swartland Secateurs Red (Badenhorst, South Africa). Please note that the broccoli contains hot sauce so it is very spicy. Personally, I enjoyed the food when it is well seasoned and my experience at Play Food & Wine was agreeable.Find more pictures on my Instagram (kelledstyle) and more info on my blog :) More...

Fantastic. My wife and I celebrated our 25 anniversary here. The service was impeccable and top scale. The food paired with wine (thanks to our waitress)was phenomenal. Understand this is not a restaurant yhat gives you heaps of food for a cheap price. The meals are similar to appetizer size but very high quality. A great meal with warm marinated olives to share, we both had the butternut squash soup, lamb skewers and some fried pork ribs which were divine. Topped off with breads and dipping oils , and a shared desert with coffee and we went away impressed and content. Our visit was on a Sunday night In September. The atmosphere is very relaxed and intimate More...

The food served here is absolutely superb staff is very knowledgeable and friendly without being overbearing at all. My server Paul is as very likeable and made our experience great. The $25 for two meals for each person was a great deal! We we're able to sple their exquisite menu of luxurious items such as octopus and black rice or trout in a cream sauce without hesitation while still able to get a steak and gnocci to be safe. Very pleased to be able to eat high end food on such an affordable budget. And it is right next to parliment and street market by the Ottawa sign More...

Par la suite, truite, bar et pieuvre pour terminer avec une viande rouge (beuf) parfaitement cuit selon la demande. Le tout accompagné par une excellente bouteille de vin blanc recommandée par notre serveur. Attention, les brocoli tempura sont piquants. Pour bouche entraînée! More...

We had two plates each with my partner, which we advised were small appetizer plates. I got a charcuterie plate which came with bold, spicy mustard and rich red honey as a beautiful constrast. Easily the best plate I've had in years. The misses had a celery soup that was of the same quality.Our second plates were problematic however. I had a mushroom, pine nut gnocchi that was so buttery and oily as to be inedible. It was clearly slow cooked and well prepared, just unfortunately in bad combination. It was returned without issue. The misses had a spicy broccoli tempura that was poorly battered and spicier than expected. She had about half it.The staff was extremely professional, friendly and helpful. We were there approxiamtely an hour and half for two plates, an no wine, given it was midday lunch. More...

On nous a expliqué courtoisement que beaucoup d'Asiatiques et d'employés de l'Ambassade américaine mangent chez Play.

This place is amazing. Let's start with the service. It was our anniversary and however they magically communicate, it was as if everyone we were in contact with was aware that it was a special day, which was really nice. When our server saw we weren't pleased with our original seating (we're not picky, it was just that it was our anniversary afterall and we were sitting by a wall in a corner) and she moved us upstairs to a window seat overlooking the market- fantastic! Our server, Sarah B was truly exceptional. She explained all the plates and made some recommendations. We ordered the liver pate mousse (AMAZEBALLS flavour!) and the pate en croute, which was probably the only dish I wasn't completely wowed with. She brought out a recommended Dolcetta d'Alba wine which paired perfectly. Afterwards we enjoyed the gnocchi and the hanger steak. My husband said that he had never seen my face make the expression it did when I bit into the gnocchi- I could have eaten that all day, every day. Wow, it was incredible. The hanger steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Again, Sarah had a great wine recommendation to pair with those dishes. As a final touch, Sarah surprised us with a complimentary dessert to share for our anniversary! We were not expecting that at all, and it was a beautiful touch that we really appreciated. We will definitely return. Thank you Play for making our anniversary a night we'll never forget. More...

Fantastic service! The food was really lovely. We got three cheeses, the beef tartare, the gnocchi and the pork belly. The beef tartare was my least favourite but still good. The gnocchi was surprisingly light and refreshing. The cheeses were delicious but served with very little fixings. Didn't show very beautifully but honestly amazing cheese. The pork belly was the best part of the meal. The pork melted in your mouth, and the Dijon, sauerkraut and spätzle complimented it very nicely. The restaurant itself was not visually interesting, I really didn't like the open kitchen. This can be successful but the kitchen didn't look that nice. More...

I've only been here once. It was our first date in the area since moving here. Had the mixed charcuterie and a 5 cheese platter with some wine to drink. First off, the portions are much more reasonable and you are encouraged to order more than one plate. Our charcuterie was delicious, with chutney on the side. The cheese platter had a great mix of cheeses, we were able to choose 5 from a list of about 10 cheeses. Crackers were nice and the wine was delicious.It may be a bit on the pricey side of things, but this isn't somewhere you are going to be everyday. Well satisfied and recommend going for a light lunch or brunch. Many other meals in the menu, but I cant comment on those yet. More...

I was looking for a nice place to dine alone and was recommended this restaurant. They have a few places overlooking the open kitchen , and I was given the very best spot... Where all the plates wait to be delivered after being scrutinized by the Executive Chef Ardington...While a tasted only two plates (portions are deliberately small, so you are expected to order two or three of them... Bigger than a tapas, more like appetizer-sized...) I saw pretty much all the menu.Chef Ardington dealed in a breeze with my weird allergy and I was able to see her very efficient brigade preparing all the food for the restaurant from that very small but highly organized kitchen.A very nice experience.My first plate was a duck liver mousse with a really good cherry molasses. Not sure that the bread needed butter on both sides... But the mollases was very, very good.My second plate was the gnocchi... Home made. I asked. While they are a little on the big side, they are really tasty and their texture is light and very soft. Not chewy at all.This last plate being made essentially of mushrooms and cream with some sage and grilled pine nuts, maybe not the best best choice if it's very hot outside... But for tonight, it was ok.I will certainly visit this place again. More...

Small portions of amazing food. We had our first dish coming to our table with a little bit of a delay and as a compensation without us complaining they didnt charge us for that dish! If you are interested in trying out new tastes that is where you should be going to More...

What a gem! Had tapas with a wine that I hadn't seen since my last time in Le Marche, Italy. The wait staff knows their stuff. We never felt rushed to get out, even though we closed the place on a Wednesday night.Next time I am in Ottawa, this place is definitely on the top of my list. More...

Great sharing tapas in the market. One of the last restaurants in the market where quality doesn't get influenced by the fact that it's in a tourist area
