My daughter and I just love your pizza! we are both vegeterians and enjoy the different types of toppings - very interesting and tasty! Thank you! Our food server was excellent and we like to pop in once a month for our pizza and very tasty beet salad. We look forward to each new month and the wonderful offerings at your eatery.

We're creatures of habit and love when we find a great place to dine and we can repeat the positive experience every time we visit :)

You're our place for a salad, pizza, and a nice glass of wine - even better when 1/2 price bottle night (and we can cork what's left).

thanks for asking!

Nice atmosphere. We ordered two pizzas which were good but the toppings were clumped here and there not spread evenly. So I would eat one piece of pizza full of hot peppers, and then other mild piece with meat on it. You would think with the amount of restaurants serving wood-oven pizza these days it would drop the price.

The food was great at B&R and I highly recommend any of their pizza's. The beer I ordered was flat and watered down and while they were very understanding of this it took a loooooooong time to correct the problem with an alternate - so much so that I was done my meal when it finally arrived.
Overall a great spot with excellent food.

We reserved a table and it wasn’t ready when we arrived. They made us wait at the front in uncomfortable chairs for over 10 minutes. The wine was way overpriced as was the food. It was definitely not a favourite.

Desapointed with where we were seated, right by the kitcen ,no door, noisy
We had antipasto dish that had cheese the waiter asked if we wanted bread and since there was no bread on the table we said yes, but then we were chrged $4.00 for for 5 small pieces,if no crackers or bread how are we suppose to eat the cheese.
The cesar drink had 3 olives,but very little vodka,and clamato, lots of ice ,nices spices but $12. To much
Our server was very nice

Main course I had was the steak fries and they were fabulous. Waiter should have offered bread to me as I was in a group of five who all had appetizers. I waited a solid 90 minutes before I had any food. It was long.

This was my second visit to this establishment. Second as good as the first. Favourite spot to sit, particularly on art crawl night, is in the front window. On the second visit we sat at a table for two by the pizza station. Very entertaining. First time around we had steak tartar and charcuterie board. This time the pasta dish of the eve, raw oysters and mushroom pizza. It was all outstanding. We were particularly pleased at how the wait staff took their time with us and explained the dishes in detail. A very busy place, so to avoid disappoint, make reservations.

We dined here for the first time as we wanted to try certain dishes. I feel the dishes were extremely overpriced for the quality of the food. The decoration was nice but that's about it. The pizza was decent but took about an hour and half to receive it. For some reason our pizza also came last so that didn't make sense. Service is probably the worst. No smile, didn't ask any questions and forgot our drinks three times. Would I go back ... nope. I am sure a lot of people can relate.

the service was very meh. very indifferent waiter...

my no. 1 complaint- wow. high turnover.... as soon as the plate was empty. people were cleaning up. i felt like staff was in a hurry to get us out. at one time we had a piece of cheese left from our app and the waiter wanted to take the dish so we rushed to eat it before he took it.

i appreciate great service and i've been there before but the high turn over , eat your food, finish your drink and please leave so we can sit anther table is poor.... it was a birthday dinner with four ladies and we left to go to another dessert place...why rush us... it was a sunday night...
