Great local restaurant, incredible service and food. Sat in one of the booths... seats could use a little more padding, and dim the lights - and you will have attained perfection! Thank you for a great night out!

It was the perfect venue to celebrate my friend's birthday. She doesn't get out much these days and she thoroughly enjoyed it, we both did. The staff was lovely and the food delicious. The menu offers a very good variety to suit whatever you're in the mood for. Worth the drive to Aldershot!

We've been going to the West Plains Bistro for special events for a few years now. On this last trip, we had a problem with one of our orders but it was quickly rectified to our satisfaction. A testament to their great food and service.

We came because we liked it so much last year! We were not disappointed this year. I have never had chicken rice soup that I loved so much! Many tender large chunks of chicken with spinach and neat toppings. I'd come again just for the soup! Interesting skillet main course with egg and mushroom, great on the rainy, cold day. Then my main course of dessert! I had the triple chocolate Skor cake with a generous serving of whipped cream! Divine! Great cozy classy atmosphere. Excellent service! We actually got the last table of standard seating and were happy because they thought we would have to be in the high seats in the bar section. It all worked out in our favour. You can be sure we will be back. Thank you.

Not sure why we are being asked at time of reservation if we are celebrating a special event. We indicated it was our anniversary and no one bother mentioning anything about it or wish us happy anniversary. We had read on the internet that it was a romantic restaurant and were expecting a lot more quiet but the noise level was loud.

We decided on a Friday night to go out for dinner on Saturday night. We reserved Saturday early bird. West Plains Bistro accommodated dinner for 8 and a great environment quite music so that we could all talk together. Food and service was fantastic . I would highly recommend this place,

I initially booked West Plains Bistro so that my friends and I could enjoy Taste Of Burlington which was starting on Feb 17. When we got there we were told that West Plains Bistro was going to do this promotion starting on Feb 18. The advertising online was all for Feb 17. So we were disappointed with the misinformation and we ordered from the menu that was given to us. The server was kind and recognized the mistake, so she offered us at her cost a free dessert on the house. That was a very kind gesture and did relieve some of the discomfort we were feeling about the restaurant. I hope she did not have to pay for this out of her pocket. For the most part, I recommend West Plains Bistro to my friends and family.

We had a fantastic experience at West Plains Bistro for our Valentine's dinner. The food was delicious, came promptly and was presented very nicely. The portions were a bit larger than we had expected and we may have opted out of the appetizer had we known...although the appetizer was wonderful too. We will definitely go back and bring friends.

Not too long ago, complimentary bread tray was served with entrées. Now it's $5 for the same thing. Salmon in philopastry delicious with the lemon sauce. Apples in the Dutch Apple Torte could have been baked longer. Service appropriately attentive; not obtrusive. Friendly staff made for a very pleasant experience. Overall; enjoyable, indeed. We are regulars for special occasions.

We don't often get to the West Plains Bistro, but the twice a year experience has consistently been exceptional. From special requests of flower arrangements to be set at the table upon arrival, to the subtleties of the handling of the payment, the staff have always exceeded expectations. The food has always been well prepared, well presented and with enough creativity in the taste pallet to keep the cuisine approachable but distinctive.

The hostess gladly held our table when we were delayed by traffic and the cosy atmosphere was most welcome as we came in from the driving rain.

The server was very friendly and experienced. The food was very good and i included choices for both the meat-lovers and vegetarians in our group.
