You must try the wine. The price is very reasonable for the wine you get. The down to earth pricing, margin are very very modest. Selection and we'll chosen. The menu is great, with rotating and seasonal. I loved the fig plate, the ducks, and charcuteri(sp?) board. Let the I'm house sommelier help with the wine paring if you don't... More

This is a small restaurant in the Byward Market. My husband and I greatly enjoyed our dinner. The main restaurant is on the second floor and they serve small plates. We had the halloomi and baked brie, small charcutrery board, duck poutine and meatballs with great wine! Everything was delicious! They also serve baked figs with prosciutto that are awsome!...

We were on holiday in Ottawa and it is always a gamble choosing somewhere to eat. Tried a couple of restaurants down the street but were told no tables - come back in 45 minutes or later. Tried Must and were greeted with warm friendly staff who found a table, took time to explain the menu and the options and... More

Upon arriving in Ottawa for the first time we were kindly directed to the byward market. This market is largely dominated by pubs. Our first attempt at food and service was very unsuccessful. On our way back to the hotel we happened across Must. There was a guitar playing inside so we ventured in. Unfortunately for us we had just... More

This little tapas style lounge is ideal for a romantic meeting of hearts and minds. The servers are knowledgeable and very helpful with a perfect selection of wine and small checutarie plates.

They seem to specialize in small plates. We had charcuterie and 3 small plates. We had the bison meatballs, duck wings, and the seared foie gras. The duck wings were out of this world fantastic. The have an enoteca system in this restaurant which allowed us to have a great super Tuscan by the glass. Service was good but they... More

Very limited wine list - a surprise considering the title, and cocktail menu was limited and disappointing. Food selections were interesting, but lacked in execution - sometime overcooked, but mostly over sauced. Will not likely return, with so many other choices in the area at that price-point.

I really like this place. The service is good and the food is amazing. I love the bison and the elk medallions. A great date place! Great wine list too.

Must has a very unique atmosphere located in a small heritage building nestled in the heart of the Byward Market. All of the Staff were very friendly and the food was so good. Can't wait to go back!
