I really wanted to love this place; the setting is cozy and inviting, service was excellent, and it is obviously beloved my many locals. On a previous visit to Ottawa we had walked in off the street, drawn by the appealing menu and cozy decor, but the place was packed and no table was available. So, we reserved ahead for... More

Be sure to check out the online menu before you go, so you know what to expect. It's not your typical bacon and eggs - this place offers some unique options with prices in the $16-18 range. The menu is on the smaller side, but the portions were huge! Additionally, everyone seated in the restaurant that morning was also given... More

This is one of the places that we really wanted to visit while in Ottawa. We heard from the staff the sad news that the building has been sold, and the new owners want to put their own restaurant in the space, so the Murray Street Kitchen has to close on December 31, 2016. This is very unfortunate, because we... More

Make sure to look up the menu before coming here! I only went because a friend of mine wanted to go, and I glanced at the menu online beforehand but saw very few options and all of them were very strange, but I assumed once we got to the restaurant they would have a more detailed menu with more options,...

This restaurant is unique. It emphasizes local ingredients to the extreme. It specializes in specially prepared meats and local cheeses, all of which are presented well. We had smoked duck breast, which came with condiments like ginger carrot and a unique (and delicious) cranberry relish, and pickled onions. We also had the prosciutto and melon, which was a heartier form... More

We had a nice dinner on a weekday on Ottawa so we accept the hotel clerk's suggestion to go to this restaurant. The waiter was very friendly and had great suggestions. If you love meat you should come to this place, only 7 alternatives for entrees but everyone of them are very good! Local beer great and the atmosphere in... More

We had Saturday brunch at Murrays and we were delighted with the interesting and creative dishes--e.g., pulled pork in a crispy potato shell with homemade ketchup etc. Very good and kind service.

The food here is always very good, the service excellent with an attentive owner who mingles to ensure things are unfolding as they should. The smoked pork rib is limited and a go to plate

Lovely brunch in Byward Market area. Would have loved to return for dinner but limited for time. Maybe on a future visit?!
