Went to Buon Gusto to celebrate my birthday. I suggested this place because I had a gift certificate I had been given previously that I had not had a chance to use yet. Apparently, the place had changed ownership since the certificate had been purchased. The manager would not honor the certificate. We thought this was a poor decision on his behalf because when you purchase a business, you purchase all it’s debts.
Our waitress hovered and seemed to be rushing us through or meal.
The food was good, but we won’t be back. Seemed like greed was getting in the way of good service and good business.

Relaxing unhurried evening with simple but delicious flavors. Loved the salmon in a salad as well as main course. Several visits here are always consistently tasty & satisfying.

This was our first visit to Buon Gusto. We came based on their ads for organic produce, grass fed beef and wild caught seafood. The menu is a not big but there is a little bit of everything. We started with the Bruschetta. The topping was tasty but the bread wasn't toasted. So it was difficult to eat. I ordered the Sonoma Salmon dinner and the other 3 people ordered the Greek Wraps. The salmon was very good and the rice was delicious. The people having the wraps all enjoyed them, but they all agreed the slaw served with it was bland and they left it on the plate. But the biggest hit was the dinner rolls they served before the meal. They were worth the trip all by themselves. I would go back again.

How can it be that a Sunday Bruch menu , half of which lists pancakes, waffles, French toast, and such which generally are accompanied with syrup, finds the Kitchen without syrup?
Yes, a compote was substituted, but !!!

There are sources for purchasing syrup on Sundays, albeit not the exact product usually offered.

Is there no alliance between restaurants that would have been an emergency source?

Just disappointed particularly since I had invited friends to drive a considerable distance to join me after a terrible brunch here on Easter Sunday

Love the ambiance of this little gem in Brighton, Michigan. Ordered the Brussel Sprouts and Brioche with some wine to kick start our night, deliciousness with the shredded sprouts and pork belly and caramelized onions. We tried a little bit of everything and all were prepared and served with perfection.

The Etouffee was excellent, Cajun sauce was perfect. Risotto was creamy and delicious. I had a bolognese sauce with pork, beef, and veal that turned the tastebuds upside down. My wife ordered blackened salmon that I sampled and was great. Not too spicy, just right. But the Tortellini my daughter was served was a spectacular sight. All the way through 5 different deserts, they did not disappoint. Each desert was a work of art, and some of the finest finishers we could have requested. Can’t wait for the patio experience.

Service was perfect, attentive but not over bearing. Loved this place.

Always a pleasure eating at this quaint little italian joint. The food is really good, and they have some interesting and yummy craft cocktails. The atmosphere, although a bit cramped, is comfortable, clean and not too noisy. The service is great too. Nice place for a date night, groups of 2-4, even 6, but it's a bit too small for larger groups.

I was so impressed with Buon Gusto. I 100% will be back! Food was so good (brunch).

My only suggestions would be to add bottomless Mimosas; not that I need to drink that many Mimosas, but the current glass size is small and they're not super cheap. :)

this was a decent second time to the restaurant. Unfortunately the food paled compared with our first trip. The schnitzel was overcooked/dry. The appetizers were solid. Wait staff did a nice job recommending things. Unfortunately our "booth request" was juxtaposed to the exit door from the bar which interrupted both conversation and warmth with frequent cold blasts of air. Will try it again before making final recommendations.

Great food and healthy. I started going to Buon Gusto a few years back after I was diagnosed with cancer and wanted to take a more holistic approach. They have tons of gluten-free options, food that is locally sourced, organic, and free-range. Found this restaurant at the right time ands totally recommend, especially if you're wanting to eat healthy.
