My husband and I dined last Sat evening at Luxe Bistro for a special meal out. Located in the heart of the Byward Market, I was charmed by the modern decor and buzzing atmosphere. Being a Saturday night in the tourist hotspot of the Byward market, the restaurant was packed. We were seated by the window to also enjoy the... More

The food was so bad that we couldnt eat anything. The atmosphere and the service was wonderful. But i would not recommend this place for anyone if you are hungry.

Although the service was very very nice, the food was terrible. We ordered shrimp cocktail, onion soup and mussels. They were all terrible. We paid $30+ for the mussels each, and ordered two of them but couldn't eat more than a couple of them. Shrimp cocktail was frozen and the soup was sour. Overall, even though the atmosphere is very... More

We had foody friends in town and were looking for a place for breakfast that was affordable but a little more upscale. What a pleasant surprise! The breakfast here was fantastic! I had the eggs Benedict which were amazing. The restaurant is more upscale but with a very relaxed atmosphere. It was the perfect spot for a breakfast with friends.... More

Came here for drinks after dinner and was surprised by the vast selection of Tequilla. Forget the cocktail list and ask ur waiter directly for the drinks you like. They will make them and make them good! Average price is 10$ a cocktail. The music was loungy electronic music which suits this trendy place. Crowd is young professional. Would definitely... More

For some reason, whenever I visit Ottawa, I always end up at this restaurant. I haven't had a bad meal! It's a bit expensive but the food is good.

My boyfriend and I were visiting Ottawa and wanted to have a nice dinner out. Luxe was recommended to us by a few friends. Overall, our meal was good. Dessert was my favourite part ! The servers were friendly and the service was great, although it did take a while to have someone take our order and bring us drinks... More

We've always loved this place and have been here many times over more than a decade. However today was a let down. The beef tartare on bread had so much whatever the heck sauce was mixed in it tasted like a church lady devilled ham sandwich. The salmon tartare had a lot of panko and there was more crunch than...

We visited here for brunch and were really impressed with the food options. The make your own omelettes were delicious. The fruit tasted fresh, and the food was all very well made. The waiters were kind and there was not a long wait for the food which was very nice.

Thank Misslarose
