    Great ambience and nice staff - food was great and cocktails were fresh. Will be back to dine again! Leah and Kat were lovely servers and every other staff member were kind and thanked us for dining. Braised beef was delicious! Food and service was quick and no waiting. Cheesecake was delicious and great portion. Overall great night!!

    Ordered orichetti, the cheapest thing on the menu. Just ok, watery sauce. Definitely not worth 30.00. Not even a piece of bread with it and no option for a side salad. Drink prices are ridiculously overpriced. Our server was good.

    Service was excellent and good not be better. I was a little disappointed with some of the menu changes but easily found something to order. I had the linguini and it was perfect…. Perfectly seasoned and prepared. I was disappointed with my dessert. I had the apple crisp. The ice cream that came with it was SO good but the apple and crumble/ crisp was not good. Apples were way too firm and the crisp was just gross. Overall the experience was good - excellent server, great ambiance and fantastic entree.

    The pork belly was immaculate, where as the pastas I ordered had an interesting after taste also was not expecting the sausage to be ground, overall still good, our server was very fast accurate and friendly especially as she was short staffed

    We decided to celebrate our anniversary at Bistro One and the dinner was such a disappointment! Reservation at 5:45 in case they were busy later! Shrimp appetizer was good but downhill from there! We ordered steaks and that was the last time we saw our waitress until she brought our bill! An hour after we ordered our steak we had to ask where our meal was! In the meantime the restaurant filled up! We saw our steaks go to a couple on the tier below us who had come in half an hour after us! No one came to check on us even tho by now they knew we were upset! No visit from the manager and when the steaks finally arrived they had obviously been sitting and were barely warm! A simple smear on the plate of mashed potatoes and 4 stalks of uncooked asparagus but perhaps they were just old! They ended up not charging us for one of our steaks and the glass of wine that we had to ask twice for but that in no way made up for the terrible service, cold food and a disappointing evening! Last time we will visit this restaurant! If you want to celebrate a special occasion this may not be your best choice!!! They don’t acknowledge the occasion anyway!

    The ambiance was lovely. The food was really good. Big portions. We were a little disappointed with the service. The staff person seemed to be in a bit of a rush. When pouring our wine, she came very close to missing each glass. Also, she was a little abrupt when setting the dishes down on our table. As it was a evening with friends we hadn't seen in a while, the overall dining experience was lovely.

    The menu has been cut back. I wanted to order lamb chops but none on the menu. The filet mignon was delicious. Wish they had more appetizers.

    It was nice but not awesome. I found the waits very long between the courses. The new menu was interesting, after ordering the dish was totally not as expected. The appetizer was surprising in a really nice way. The main course ,the mahi-mahi, was overdone. I prefer my fish medium this was well done and hard to eat. I am a dessert freak and enjoyed mine very much.

    We choose to eat on the patio. Unfortunately we were forgotten. After being seated and given the menu a 1/2 hour went by and I needed to go into the restaurant and ask for a server to come take our order. We ordered pasta that was amazing, but it had a crusted appearance on the top as it likely had sat to long in the kitchen waiting to be served. It was served at least 45 minutes after being ordered. Absolutely wonderful food, they just need to be more aware of their customers.

    We love the bistro. Always our go to for date nights, celebrating and love taking our friends. The food was terrible last night. Filets were tuff, beat risotto was flavourless and like glue, broccolini wasn’t even cooked. So disappointed and was embarrassed we took our friends as we had hyped it up so much.

    Their booking system showed no tables available from 6-8pm so we went at 5:30. Place was still almost empty at 7pm when we left. They need to have a better booking system allowing patrons to reserve tables as they are actually available. New menu and food was good, service was great. Nice to have this restaurant around.

    Lovely atmosphere and very professional service. Food was excellent but there was no flexibility in deviating from the set lunch menu. We wanted to order just a salad without the soup side or chicken breast but were told that wasn’t possible because they weren’t offering a “full service” during lunch. Also asked for a plate of bread as we had just ordered appetizers and again, this was not available. Neither of these requests seemed too extreme an ask for a high end restaurant in our opinion but apparently they were. One of the appetizers came with one slice of garlic toast for us to share. Two pieces would have been a nice offering. Overall, a nice meal but some easy adjustments could have made it great.

    Disappointed to pay a lot for the meal and not be able to have the signature dessert of the Chocolate Gateau. Would wonder why making sure that all menu items are available isn't possible. I do have high expectations of fine dining like this. Aren't the desserts made in house? Thank you

    We rarely go out, and never to "fine dine", but our experience was WONDERFUL. Our server, Jenelle, was very attentive, knowledgeable and sweet. Our food was over the top good. The booth was great, the service superior and the greeters were also very kind. Cannot wait to go again!

    So our dine in experience was good … and then we ordered two salmons to go ;( one specifically with absolutely no meat whatsoever. My husband is pescatarian so it’s was not lost on us that there was pancetta in both salmon dishes. Spoke to the manager Cale who left me a voicemail to basically state I was lying so that’s awesome . Bistro One had lost a customer

    Everything was fantastic except for my main entree. We had salad, entrees and dessert. We all agreed my entree was plain and was maybe missing the ma8n sauce. It would have been 5 stars except for my entree.
