Liked the food court on the second level. Good choices for a vegetarian. I ended up with sushi, but could have gotten udon or Indian food as well. Several other options too. My options were reasonably priced for the location. Pleasant atmosphere, even with the crowds on the weekend. There is some construction going on, but it just detracts from... More

There is construction going on in and out of the building. The facade is currently undergoing recladding. Some stores are being renovated.. Stores and boutiques are typical brands you see in most American malls.

Construction makes this mall difficult to navigate. Once you get your head around that, it is an omaymall. Not enough shops. Food court clean and new.

We decided to purchase something at the store called Forever 21. I found the store on the messy side with clothes lie randomly on the floor. No attendant cleaning up the clothes.

First let me say that whatever you are looking for this mall has it. All the big name brands and one of the most extensive food courts I have seen. The layout is a little wonky though. Nothing in any particular order and a little confusing. By comparison Eaton Centre in Toronto feels better. That said its still a great... More

The best part of this mall is it's Bay store, which is across from the Byward Market. At Christmas it is beautifully decorated and a great place to duc in when your fingers are frozen from looking at the outdoor vendors. They have most of the usual franchise stores . In all fairness , they were undergoing some renovations that... More
