I had booked several weeks in advance and asked to have a table for 6 people at the far/west end of the dining room. However we were seated smack dab in the middle of the restaurant by the door to the kitchen...right beside a very very large and loud group.

The service (Amanda) was excellent so no complaints about that. The red sangria was unusual...just okay but not a redo. 3 of us gave it a try and felt the same way. The food ranged from awesome (Brussels sprouts or salmon entree) to bland (crab cakes or pasta of the day). We shared several desserts but the chocolate bar was the only true winner. The cocktails and the desserts are overpriced.

It was an extra busy night because a cocktail party was being hosted downstairs and a company party was on the sidelines waiting to take over the dining room. It just felt chaotic...especially when we were seated at the kitchen door.

2 of us had Four Tapas (large appetizer, dare I say too much before a meal!), Muscovy Duck Breast and Beef Tenderloin (both well cooked and delicious) with Chocolate Nougat Bar (large dessert, good for sharing!). Drank Rye/Coke, Pom Fizz, Trius Brut and Organized Crime Pinot Noir. I'd recommend the drinks with the exception of the Pom Fizz mocktail, it was bland and flavourless.

Our server was informative and attentive. Food came quickly (in and out in under 2 hours). We will go back to try the Winter Lunch Menu or shop at the Pantry (retail food store).

I love the fresh food and great atmosphere. My only request/complaint is that there should be options for plant-based eaters. Seems like all the soups and salads have cheese or yogurt. I don't eat dairy, gluten/refined grains, sugar and animal products (I don't label myself a vegan - my food choices are not about values - my choices are based solely for health reasons) so it becomes a challenge to order without making a fuss. If you would offer a completely plant-based starter, salad and entree that would be great!

Loved it from the minute we arrived. The service was impeccable. The drinks tasted amazing. The food was fresh, creative and we plan on going again. I had the catch of the day which was Salmon and it was prepared perfectly. My husband had the Duck and it was done to perfection as well. It was a perfect night out for us to celebrate our Anniversary.

Was a bit disappointed this time. We had the chicken, which was overly salty and cost 32.00. Nothing spectacular. This is the first time I have been disappointed, though. Usually very pleased. We had a big group and our server was friendly, but a bit unorganized.

This was my (our) second visit … accompanied by same group (working team). We all agreed and enjoy the fact that a lot of the ingredients are grown locally and by DC. The menu is very pleasing and we enjoy the seasonal choices you offer. The food presentation was very nice and the food was extremely tasty. We all agree that it is a place we will book in again … not only again with our working team … also individually with family and/or friends.
The service was excellent !! Thank you Nicole.

I love coming here because it feels like a treat. The food selection is always changing. Being surrounded by windows and being up high feels uplifting. The chef obviously loves their job and I get to benefit from the flavour that they bring out. Food is local and not smothered in sauce. The service is engaging, polite and timed beautifully.

Service was ok..I hoped to get a Cake for my husband with a candle ( which i did mention in the special requests) but howver the waitress came out after we had paid the bill and handed over a box to us and said it had a cake. When we got home all i could find was a stone like piece, so hard that i couldnt be eaten!

Was so looking forward to our group luncheon. For a culinary school was very disappointed.prices too high, service was not good. One waitress for 8 people. Many items were ordered. I ordered corn beef sandwich with soup. Corn beef very little asked for mustard on side came with mustard on both sides of bread. Way too much mustard. Not sure how this happened. Overall would not go back here again.

This was the third time our group has chosen Bistro '67 for our monthly dinner. I do not believe the group will choose the restaurant again. Our primary complaint is that the table we were seated at was uncomfortably cold. We were seated int the far west table, which has beautiful views but also a terrible windchill. This is the second time we were seated in this area. Both times we have found it to be cold to the extent that several people in our group ate dinner with their coats on.
On all of our visits we have found the food to be very hit or miss. On this last visit my soup was delicious, my salad though was overdressed in a very overwhelming dressing, and the dessert was poor. Most of my meal was untouched but the server did not ask whether I had enjoyed it or not. The other guests similarly enjoyed parts of the meal but did not enjoy other parts. Overall the prices felt too high for the experience we left with.

Food was great. I am a Durham College Alumni and thought I would check it out and support the school. The purpose of the lunch was to celebrate one of my sister's birthday and she lives nearby. The waiter was very attentive. My sister was given a lovely mini birthday cake at the end of the meal free of charge which was a welcome and nice surprise. A bit pricey for lunch however our lunch was very good. Service was excellent. GN Oakville, ON

I was pleasantly surprised to see the food prices are in line with great value. Interesting trying to navigate our way to the parking lot then to b67 for the first time. Each presentation of food was fantastic. Every bite a wonderful adventure. The food was so good it was very deserving & screaming for a complimenting wine. Very disappointed to find all the drinks very over priced :(

All in all, I would go back in a heart beat.

We've heard so many great comments about the Bistro that we decided to book our anniversary dinner there for October 2nd. We were seated at the very far end of the restaurant which ended up being a very cold area and it made it very uncomfortable trying to stay warm. Our server took the time to explain the dishes on the menu, one of which was the catch of the day. It was pickerel served with vegetables. One of the vegetables was suppose to be cauliflower, but when it was brought to our table there was no cauliflower on our plate. Instead, it was a ring of calamari! We both strongly dislike calamari since it's like trying to chew a mouthful of rubber bands!!! We now realize that we should have sent our plates back to kitchen, but instead tried to make the best of what started out to be a really bad meal. The portion size was ridiculously small for the amount we paid! We each ended up getting what amounted to probably a tablespoon of potatoes. The server said he would bring us extra vegetables to make up for the mistake, but the vegetables ended up arriving after we finished our meal! And, there were two of us, but we only received one very small plate of vegetables, minus the potatoes to share. Also, we were given a map of the garden to look at while we waited for our meal to arrive. We noticed on the map that there is an area of the garden that had fresh flowers growing, I guess to use as cut flowers within the bistro. So my question is this: why are there no fresh cut flowers in small bud vases on any of the tables? If you grow flowers, why are you not using them on your tables to add to the beauty and ambiance of the bistro? Also, it would have been nice to see at least a small tea light on each table as well! Fresh flowers and candles would have been a nice touch in this type of setting, which we feel is on the upscale side of fine dining. Very disappointing dining experience overall!

Absolutely amazing food choices and quality. Wait staff and hostesses, even the chef came out and spoke, were top notch and approachable - very helpful with suggestions. Strongly recommend the charcuterie board and the Shrub non-alcoholic drink. But absolutely everything was amazing and so reasonably priced. Just an outstanding experience!
