Looking for Ottawa recommendations - downtown/market

I am planning a Girls Weekend in October and looking for restaurant recommendations in Ottawa: the downtown or Market area. A range of prices and styles.

  1. Murray St...on Murray St.
    Kewl atmosphere, great food. Need I say more?
    Play, Wine and Bar..
    All of the above restaurants are in the market.

    1. There's a lot to pick in the Market area alone. I second Murray Street and Play. Also in the Market and worth considering are Sweetgrass (aboriginal), Domus and Navarra (contemporary/Spanish).

      Something in the downtown core, but not in the Market, is Town. It just opened up and I've heard very good things about it. I haven't been yet but can't wait to go. It's on Elgin Street.

      108 Murray St, Ottawa, ON K1N5M6, CA

      85 Murray St, Ottawa, ON K1N5M5, CA

      Murray Street
      110 Murray St, Ottawa, ON K1N5M6, CA

      93 Murray St, Ottawa, ON K1N5M5, CA

      1. I would second Social for their decadent lounge-y atmosphere and cocktail lists.
        A similar alternative would be Kinki, mostly for the nice group-friendly layout, sushi, and fresh cocktails, great for a night on the town.
