Packed on a busy Friday night, the staff were friendly, the selection decent but it had a real restaurant/pub vibe to it. This is somewhere Iíd go for lunch rather than dinner. When we walked in my brother said this looks posh/pricey and he wasnít far wrong...

Among the better places in Ottawa, especially to catch up on all the local offerings. Always have a few broadhead, Beyond the Pale, Cassel, Kichesippi, and Neustadt on tap with a few others from time to time. Service is friendly and the decor is cool as long as you end up on the bar half of the restaurant - the other part feels a bit remote and neglected in terms of vibe. Food is good, but typical Ottawa prices. Offer cheap taster flights of four here - great to get a smattering of the local microbreweries.

Good solid place for tasty higher end food that always has a number of craft beers on tap. Focus used to be more on Quebec brews but now they support a lot of the local stuff happening. That being said in the market there are much better places, be it for food (Murray Street Cafe and Sidedoor to name but two that are close) and a better combined beer and food option (Brothers).

Although seated in a beautiful Byward Market building, the faux English pub interior did not seduce us from the get-go. The huge, stonewalled shared terrace though is quite an oasis with all its shade on hot and humid days like the one on which we visited in early June. We were coming hoping for la totale, the full gastropub experience. We had some pretty good plates and the beer selection was nice enough, but we ended up finding the fancier venue, more expensive prices and not necessarily tastier if often more complex plates less convincing than what seemed like a friendlier atmosphere just a few blocks away at Brothers Beer Bistro. Itís hard not to compare the two when they have the same food attention, a similar tap selection and are so close to each other. And while Black Tomato has lots of strong points, it did not reach my heart the same way, not convincing me that I would want to spend more time here than what is required to finish my meal, in large part because what is to me a better alternative is close by.

Really an upscale restaurant but with a small drinking area. Food very good. Reasonable selection of local micros.

saw 15 taps, with at least 12 craft. As good as anything in Ottawa with of course Beaus right through to Guelph offerings.

My wifes fav eatery. Artsy bistro ambiance with local artwork and music. Service is typically more hit than miss, and beer knowledge varies depending on server. Beer selection is okay not a huge variety but they focus on micro Ontario beers and better macro varietys (Creemore, McAuslan, Griffon). Food is excellent, eclectic inspired maybe a little pricy though (ditto for the beer). Still one of the better spots in the Market though.

Great food, the service was spotty i got a hassle for wanting to sit outside on a beautiful sunday afternoon in June.....what is up with that? The beer selection was lacking the lineup was a unimpressive, the 3 beers i wanted were either no longer carried, or they ran out. THe menu was obviously old. Meh, i dont see myself goijng back.

Visited this small but spaciously arranged restaurant and bar back in October when it was fairly busy on a cold weekend lunch break. Friendly service brought some delicious cheesy chicken sandwiches and tasty brews to our table where we munched away and listened to the good selection of music playing. Selection is decent and the place is in a good location for the market nearby.
