I went there one evening, I had a nice place. The food was really good and really hot like I prefer it. I had a nice plate of calamary really well cooked, in light battered. That entry could have been a main course. I had the mussels all you can eat, took it in white wine. Delicious. But I had... More

but that's it! This is like the stepsister of the busier restaurant downstairs. We made a reservation on OpenTable and were giving the WORST possible table in the place. It was right by the main entrance where the wait staff was running around. Luckily, we were able to move to a different table to our liking - but it begs... More

Where do I start? They seemed surprised that we had reservations, but found us a table. The napkins didn't arrive till the main course (we had to ask), well after our hands were messy from the bread and dipping oil. We had to ask for cutlery too. My young daughter, pointing to the drinks menu, asked if they could be... More

We have been to this place May 13, 2017. Service is pretty slow. The waitress said that everything was reserved and she could only allow us to sit at the small table in front the chimney. ( not comfortable to eat at all). We agreed. Half of the room had lots of empty table and even when we finished our... More

We went on good Friday. Although it wasn't the lunch time, but still the service was very very slow. Quality of the good wasn't great. I would say "Tasteless food" and the amount they charge for it is not worth it. Quite Small servings. Unclean dishes... I can go on and on....

Fantastic location above the Fish Market restaurant. If you got a table near the window, it is a pretty nice view out towards the Byward Market and the Parliament Hill (although you can't actually see the Parliament building). Nice rustic, vintage pub feel reminiscent of some older pubs in London that has a second floor for dining. Food is decent.... More

Excellent food. Lovely view of the Byward Market and the fireplace makes it extra cozy on a cold day. Our server, Julia, was very friendly and often came by to check if there was anything we needed. She couldn't have possibly done anything better. The cook did an excellent job on the mussels. You can't go wrong with the all... More

Treated out of town guests to all-you-can-eat mussels & fries on a Tuesday evening. Greeted by the Manager who asked if we had a reservation, which we did; he said he’d be right back. Less than 5 minutes later a server spun by to ask the same question; he said he would go check on our table. Someone else game... More

Checking the menus for Coasters & The Fish Market Restaurant I knew where I'd be going. Coasters-A good friendly casual atmosphere with excellent service & beautiful meal. Herb crusted Atlantic salmon beautifully cooked & a decent size with fries & house salad. Great service from Sarah. A good place to dine for good value & a casual atmosphere.
