This is a nice place to eat. Food is good, location is amazing and the staff and service is incredible. They offer gluten free pizza that is local but the crust falls short on taste. Chicken salad is quite delicious!

pizza was homemade, good crust and flavourful. Service was great, and the food came out fairly quickly. Busy night but we weren't abandoned.

For our second visit to The Grand, my girlfriend and I already knew the pizza was good but this time it was even better. We had calamari to start, possibly the best calamari I've ever had. Then we had 2 pizzas, the Napoli and the Carne. We finished every bite (admittedly taking our time) but enjoyed every bite. Would highly... More

We were out walking and just happened to find this gem! The pizza was amazing and the price, because it was happy hour, was spectacular!!! We told our friends about this great place :)

The Grand Pizzeria & Bar is a pizza place, so I was hoping for some good pizza. The wood burning pizza oven was promising...but the pizza isn't very good. Quality of the toppings were not very good - pepperoni tasted funny, as did the cheese, and the crust itself tasted strongly of some kind of shortening/other fat. They should keep... More

The pizza is really great with variety of selections for any taste. Ample seating available and bar area. Great spot in market. Worth a visit.

Great location in Byward Market. They have half price pizza's after 3 but we were a little to early. The pizza was tasty but no more so than anywhere else. The burger came with a salad which was nicer than having to have fries. It looked clean inside but it wasn't at all busy. Disappointed that no free refill was... More

Food and service were excellent. Interesting selection of pizzas, nice wine list. There is a kid's menu. Prices are in the usual range for a mid-scale pizza-pasta restaurant. We enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it.
