Visited February 2016, group of 9 of us. Great service, Paddy runs a terrific show. Started with charcuterie and cheese, great selections. The pirogies, nachos and poutine are insane, the spring rolls and oxtail, pickerel and rabbit were delicious. Will return again for sure!

I visited this restaurant with my husband and they served us one of the best charcuterie plates we've ever had. I love their "whole animal" philosophy and their committment to local producers. The waitress was friendly and very helpful.

I went for lunch with my husband last week and had the same outstanding experience in terms of food and service that I have come to expect at this restaurant. The food is always fresh, well prepared and presented. The server was attentive and friendly. I love the atmosphere here as well. Whether dining with family or work colleagues, it... More

Been there alone and sat at the bar. I had a very good experience. Nice chat with the staff. I tried the set menu that comes with foie gras and cheese. The 5 courses came each time with a different craft beer. Prices are correct. I'd recommend.

We did not go where to have our Brunch yesterday. Most of the downtown restaurants are closed on Sunday and very few offer something different. We're glad we selected Murray Street Bistro. The place was very busy and we're offered a nice and private corner table. A friendly waiter took care of us. We started with some charcuterie. A very... More

We went to Murray Street during what the call Happy Hour. This runs from 2:30 until 5 every day. Unfortunately, during this time you can only order "boards" and not anything off the menu, with the exception of oysters. There are also drink specials, of course. I'm not a big fan of pates and strong cheeses, but our server was... More

The menu at Murray Street isn't huge and has lots of meats, cheeses, and rich food, with little choice for vegetarians, which is not a problem for us. We purposely selected a variety of dishes from the menu so that we could sample many dishes. The weak dish was the poutine, every other dish was more interesting. The highlight was... More

This place is so unassuming from the outside. The inside is nicely appointed but causal and comfortable. My husband and I met another couple here for dinner on a Saturday at 6pm. It was starting to get busy but the service was still excellent. My husband started with the beef heart tartare. We all tried it and loved it. One... More
