Very disappointed, service was really bad. We received our meal about an hour after we ordered​ and only my when we asked about why it was taking g so much time. My meal was cold. Waiter was confused most of the time, forgot to bring the beverage to one of the person's at our table (we were 7). No would... More

I don't know why this place is not always busy? The emphasis is on sharing plates. Though they do have some main dishes too. The food sharing menu is excellent, every dish is superb ... the service was great, the prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere cosy and friendly! We took our own wine with a corkage fee of...

This cosy little restaurant in Byward market offers a great atmosphere for dinner. The menu and food presentation is unique. The duck I had was grea and unique but the apple crubmle was not expected. Worth a try!

Went with a friend to their first tasting menu evening, which was 10 courses with accompanying wine pairings. Atmosphere: Decor is lovely, old stone walls and wooden touches. Food: Great variety, good presentation, interesting flavours that blended well together. Wine pairing was by far the best I've ever had; also unique (ex: having a tiny Caesar with oysters) Service: Excellent... More

I had the Chicken Supreme and the Brie & Halloumi for an appetizer. My dinner was delicious. I have a sensitive stomach and I am very cautious of where I eat - I will definitely go back to Must! The restaurant decor is perfect. The service was friendly.

Definitely worth a visit! I would suggest the brie and halloumi appetizer! I had the filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection as well as very tender. I was too full for dessert so I can't comment on that.

My date and I were looking for a place to have a drink before going to dinner so the information kiosk at By Ward Market suggested Must K & W Bar... Upon arrival on the main floor we were directed to the second floor where we say down and we sat down to a empty floor, we all alone... We... More

Our group of 4 went on Sunday of Labour day weekend. It was the first time we were going but it will not be the last. My husband can not do stairs so we sat on the ground level in the window. We had great service and the food was fantastic, we also brought our own wine for a $5.00... More

Enjoyed our time at this cozy restaurant in the Byward market. Very nice selection of wine and craft beer. Choice of small tapas-style plates of food or main courses. Delicious! They were very busy but service was excellent. If going on a Saturday night you may want to make reservations.

This restaurant was recommended by a local to my husband and I. We were one of two couples eating there and the waiter acknowledged he was new to the restaurant. He was helpful with wine suggestions but was still getting used to the food menu. My husband ordered a steak which was okay, I ordered a chicken salad, the chicken... More
