I took my sister out for a "birthday" lunch, and with the pandemic still an issue, we decided to go somewhere that would not be crowded (it was a Tuesday lunch) but would have great food, a good glass of wine and a sweet dessert. Bistro One fit the bill! We both loved our meals--she had the pickerel and fries; I had the burger and fries. A nice glass of wine to go with it and a crème brulée for dessert rounded out our amazing lunch. Yes, it cost more than most places; in fact, we spend more than her husband did for dinner at the Keg on Friday, but it was worth it. The food, the service, the restaurant...worth spending a little more on special occasions!

Had a great business lunch at Bistro One. Service was excellent, timing was perfect, and the food was fresh. Ordered a beet salad with add-on of salmon. Will be back soon.

Server was great! We miss the roasted garlic with the bread. As it’s served now, it’s not as flavourful. Great appetizers & salads! A seafood sauce option with the calamari would be nice. The lamb with Gorgonzola butter is sadly missing from the menu. The sirloin steak was a little dry.

The starters was excellent as usual but the crab sandwich was poor. We’ve dined here for dinner before and it was fabulous.It’s our first time to go for lunch and was disappointed.The fries looked like leftover fries and recooked the next day. I wish the fine dining quality of the starters complement the mains. Paying $131. is quite expensive for a lunch of sandwich that can be had anywhere. The chef need a bit of consistency and creativity planning their menu.

Service and food was excellent. We had the pickerel cakes with arugula salad and the bistro burger that was all really good. The only thing I’d change next time I go is an ask for crispy fries. Otherwise everything was great!
Will definitely be back!

Patio dining not conducive to the ambiance of fine dining. Rock and pop music more a bar scene. Food delicious but didn’t have dessert as the music was off putting. Even after it was turned down. Til pandemic behind us we will do take out.

One of the finest restaurants we have ever visited throughout our travels around the world. The decor, art, make for an inviting start to your dinning experience. Chantel was our server who knew the menu and expressed perfectly what our selections would be. The wine menu permits selecting a match for entrees. The food presentations are superb and the food is amazing with flavors that will explore all taste buds. We cannot express a more positive experience. Enjoy!

Our server was exceptional! Her dedication to us was above par. Our meals were very good as well. The pasta was fantastic along with the duck entrée. Only downside was the string fries that was served with the duck. We found it to be a bit of a different pairing with such a great choice/selection of meat. Having said that, we will definitely be back!

Great service. The soup was fantastic. Risotto was chewy and under seasoned. One piece of asparagus despite it being a featured vegetable in the vegetable risotto. The BLT steak salad was lovely and the steak was perfectly cooked.
