Went there to celebrate a birthday and each person ordered a pizza and a cocktail. The food and drinks were overpriced and the quality was not that good tbh. Not sure i would come back again.

Warm white wine, marginal pizza that is overpriced and crappy service. They advertise 1/2 price pizza prior to 6 on weekdays, except the server fails to indicate that only certain pizzas are 1/2 price, really very poor service. At half price the pizza is still...More

Located in the By market in Ottawa, the Grand pizzeria and bar is a great place to grab a quick bit and a few drinks. Attentive staff, limited variety on the menu other then pizza.. Pizza is freshly made in a wood oven.

This restaurant has a great terrace ideally located for people watching in the market. The servers are super nice as well but the pizza is not that great. I've eaten here a couple of times and the pizza is either undercooked or lacking in taste....More

For a place in the middle of the most touristy area in Ottawa, I think that they offer reasonably good food. The atmosphere is very lively as they're always very busy being in the center of Byward market. The pizzas are good, but nothing over...More
