Diner Reviews
  • "Nothing really wrong with restaurant, just didn't care for Menu '"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Food was good - not amazing. Server was attentive (there were very few patrons in the restaurant). Price was reasonable. Nothing that would cause me not to return. Just nothing remarkable."

  • "We went here for dinner with another couple, we ordered some appetizers and they were OK. Our dinner was also just OK. But then we all went home each of us complained of upset stomachs. I also took half of my mild seafood curry home, only when I wanted to eat it later, I realized that it couldn't have been my dish. There was way more food then what I left behind and this was very spicy. Once I realized that there was no way this was my leftovers, I was really grossed out. I think the restaurant is pricey and the food quality does not equate to the price."

  • "Unfortunately when we went it was right after Valentines Day so they had run out of a lot of their meal choices. There wasn't anyone else there, but we all agreed it was a nice place. Probably picks up a little later at night."

  • "Great day out with my boyfriend and stumbled upon the Native by accident .... So glad we did. Half price wine was such a treat so we had a bottle, and settled in by the adorable fireplace for their burger with bacon and Brie - wow!! Delicious piping hot and smothered with goodies. Always a salad girl I went for the fries as a treat - again crunchy on outside and super soft in - haven't had that perfection in a while. Waitress was lovely - friendly cute and bubbly and very accommodating always had a smile - she was just a delight! Overall a terrific gem in the Burlington downtown neighborhood that we will for sure go back to and try again with friends and or the kids."

  • "Fantastic service and great atmosphere! Our server had perfect timing and was very friendly and efficient. She went out of her way to accommodate my gluten-and-dairy free diet and made me feel at ease in asking. We really enjoyed the evening and would go there again."

  • "Was disappointed by the extreme wait time to order, receive drinks, order food, and then receive food. The food that I got (pad thai) wasn't at all what I imagine Pad Thai to be, but was still good. The bills took a very long time to come out and then when they did a few of us had a mix-up on our orders so that had to be fixed. The place would be a decent enough local spot to hang out at if the service was more attentive, sorry."

  • "Service too slow (50 mins to ge our dinner at 6 pm) only about 6 tables with people. My Singapore noodles were very tasty and a perfect portion size."

  • "Went to Rude Native for the first time on a very cold Monday night in January. Parking is free from January to March and is very close to the restaurant. Food was great. I had the beet and tomato salad to start . It was surprisingly very filling and the portion was perfect. My friend had the brie brule with crusty bread which she loved. Main: I had the salmon with crisp vegetables, it was good but little dry. I would have preferred a little more of the dressing/sauce that was on the rice. But I still enjoyed it very much. My friend had the jerk chicken and rice. She loved it, beware it is very spicy!! Wine list was a nice selection and the perfect amount to choose from."

  • "This decent restaurant inexplicably turns into a club at 10pm with brain pounding techno music. However everyone there still seemed to want to watch the hockey game or enjoy dinner with friends. I suggest they decide if they want to be a nice restaurant or a dance club. Right now they seem terribly confused."

  • "I had been to the Oakville location when it was still open and hadn't been to the Burlington one before. This restaurant was upscale and elegant with a very interesting menu. We had a few appetizers and thoroughly enjoyed our time."

  • "We dined before attending the theater and when we arrived about 6PM were the only patrons (even though restaurant is only one block from the theater). Some additional patrons showed up over the next hour but establishment was never more then 1/3 full. Needless to say service was attentive although not over bearing. The beet and tomato appetizer salad was very fresh and was an interesting combination. The salmon fillet was done to properly although nothing outstanding. The Pad Thai was very tasty but contrary to servers assurance was quite spicy for the "medium" version. Overall an OK meal but would not run right back or go for a special occasion, basically a bar with an enhanced menu."

  • "I tried appetizers that make your mouth water. The meals are worth going back for or selling your favorite outfit for. I will go back again and again until I get bored of the menu which will be never! 7 out of 5 stars!"

  • "Would completely recommend this restaurant, the service was excellent and we did not feel rushed throughout the meal, all 3 courses came at a nice pace. The food was nicely presented & tasted lovely, the double baked cheesecake is well worth the indulgence, a good dessert to share, menu prices are very reasonable, looking forward to going back again!"

  • "Nice dining spot to gather with small group of friends. Service is excellent and food always tasty and worth discovering. I like that there is a special feature every day and we went for the Tuesday night all you can eat mussels. Served in 4 different options and portions are generous. The mussels were plump and juicy. Green curry sauce was a favourite. The wine menu needs updating as some offerings have been discontinued and replaced. Also a little limited in the whites. The decor is soberly stylish and not intimidating and the background music , if any, allows you to carry a quiet conversation without straining to hear each other. A good place to enjoy food and conversation. Thank you for a great meal."
