West Plains Bistro is a classic European style bistro that offers a taste of Paris in Burlington style. Using local, seasoned ingredients, the restaurant serves everything from steak to quiche for lunch. The dinner menu features exciting chef’s specials daily, along with other tantalizing menu items from a Filet Mignon to halibut fish and chips and more. The restaurant has an early bird menu that is served from 4pm – 5:30pm. The homemade soups offered by the restaurant have won awards and are famous among its patrons.

West Plains Bistro offers a unique dining experience with the décor theme oozing European-inspired charm. The wrought iron tables are adorned with stained-glass lamps and bouquets of fresh flowers, giving a vintage feel. The outdoor patio is a true gem, as it is modeled to replicate a picturesque Parisian street. West Plains Bistro also offers professional catering services, including staffing, beverages and food.

It was nice restaurant, however they took very long to serve lunch and when I booked I had put for a birthday yet no special treatment and we had to rush . Food was sub par.

We had a great experience this week at West Plains Bistro. The service was outstanding - at no point did we feel rushed, but at the same time the server was attentive to our needs. Food was excellent - we both enjoyed the "early bird" dining option and the meal was delicious, with good portions. I highly recommend this restaurant!

This was a 'day late' Mother's Day lunch for my Mom. We always enjoy visiting this restaurant. Service was OK. Our server was very frirndly and knowledgeable. However, there were only two servers on and I don't think she stopped by to check on our progress and we seemed to sit for a bit before the dishes being cleared and dessert offered.

However, parking is not easy or generous in the lot.

Thank you

Always a pleasure. Catching up with my cousin after three years. We were not rushed . The server was so friendly. Our lunches were fantastic. My cousin who came in from Toronto raved about it. The owner, Irene, is always friendly and welcoming.

Unfortunately they didn't have mussels available. They should tell the customers when seated or remove them from the menu.

I’ve been there a few times, usually for lunch, so I know what to expect and am never disappointed. The food is always good and the presentation of the salad with the salmon dish was a lovely surprise. The prices are on the higher side but I don’t mind because I know I’ll have a lovely dining experience. It was the first time there for my friend and she said she’d definitely go back.

Our experience was top notch. From the on-form registration to this follow-up. The food is always very good here and the venue is perfect for a business meal for 2 to 4 people. Service as always, is excellent. It is also a great place for a nice lunch or dinner with family and friends.

Early dinner and really enjoyed the experience. Two of us ordered from the menu, the other two the early bird special. The soup had incredible flavour and texture. The salmon was superb and a nice portion. The desert was interesting and playful. All of us agreed we would eat here again. The price was not out of line with what we ate so I'd say it was good value and great food.

I didn't realize when I made the reservation that it would be a high top table vs the dining room so the ambience was a little more bar style. An amazing restaurant and great place to dine regardless.

Had some out-of-town guests pay us a visit one evening. Wanted to impress, so booked the Bistro because we had read so many good reviews. Food quality and presentation was impressive. Our server was personable and efficient. My guests called the next day to thank my wife an I for a fantastic night. Thankyou West Plains Bistro!

Even though it was very busy with" Taste of Burlington", we had a lovely luncheon. The parsnip /pear soup was especially delicious. I also recommend the lemon cheesecake if you have a sweet tooth. The service and timing was superb and the salads were very fresh and well-presented.

Our experience last night was perfect. The service was fantastic from Laura in the bar area. We have never dined at the high top tables but I think I prefer it there now. Everyone's meal was delicious and the apps were perfect. This was one of the best nights out we've had in a long time. We will be back soon.
