We had to wait 40mn to get our pizzas. Pizzas were all overcooked and almost burned. Try everything else but not pizzas!

We went to The Grand Pizzeria & Bar in Ottawa for dinner, and we would repeat again. The menu is wide enough to doubt about what to choose, everything accompanied with lots of beers (draft and bottled) and several wines. The have children menu too. Especially in the night, the terrace is comfortable and nice, although sitting inside is a... More

Service slow, but not the servers fault. Also not the kitchens fault. We were seated in plain view of the wood burning pizza oven and they worked flat out all the time we were there. Their patio effectively doubles the seating capacity of the restaurant and the kitchen simply can't keep up. Food once finally arrived (40 mins from time... More

Split a delicious lunch with a friend, added the side salad and it was more than enough food for two ladies for lunch. Had what I believe is called the Sophia pizza - tomatoes, arugula, parmesan, goat cheese - lovely crust, sauce, veggies - quite a good pizza. Strange choice on just placing a giant pile of fresh arugula on... More

We had a great experience at The Grand! From the moment we sat down, we were provided with excellent service! The Caprese Salad was dynamite and our pizza (we ordered The Grand Pizza) was delicious! The atmosphere was wonderful. We sat on the patio (highly recommended) and had an overall excellent experience.

Out of several kinds of beer, calamari bland and swimming in grease, pizza extremely soggy and crust underdone. At least they took the pizza off the bill but a bad experience all around.

The server was friendly, the atmosphere was nice but the pizza seemed a bit over priced. Anything with protein was at least $17.99. The portion was that large since we finished the whole pizza. The middle of the pizza was not cooked but I guess this in the new trend for fire oven pizza because this was the second place... More

We were two families of four. They lost our reservation despite showing them the booking info on our phone. They said the online system wasn't working well? They were able to accommodate us anyway but I'm always disappointed in poorly organized restaurants. We sat on the patio 5:30 and were pleasantly surprised that until 6pm they offered a few of...

My wife and I ate dinner here on our recent visit to Canada. We sat in their outside seating area, which was an absolutely perfect way to enjoy a beautiful Canadian evening. We shared the calimari and split the Capricciosa. Both were exceptional. The service was very quick, despite the fact that the restaurant was full. Overall an excellent experience... More
