The duck special was very good, but delivered closer to medium than medium rare. Wonderful zinfandel from Marietta.

Took hubby for birthday dinner. Delicious menu and lovely presentation on your plate. Cozy atmosphere and the servers very friendly with a desire to please. We were sat down right away but if we weren't there is a bar area to wait in. I would definitely recommend for a special treat.

Bring back the rabbit! It was an excellent special one night. The salads, French onion soup, fish and chips are second to none. Our pork medallions we’re dlightly overdone, but very flavourful. The beef bourganeon (sp) was fabulous. All the staff are exceptional.

Over all food was good. A little noisy for conversation.
No dessert is ever worth $10.00 or tea/coffee @$4.00!!!
We were asked to politely leave as someone else was waiting for our table!!!!

West Plains Bistro is a wonderful restaurant! We thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, the food and the service. My husband had the pickerel which he said was delicious and I had the french onion soup (which was one of the best I ever had) and the warm beet salad, which was also very delicious. The zucchini fritters were also fabulous as an appetizer. There are lots of good menu options. We live in Etobicoke, and I wish we had this restaurant there! We'll be back next time we come to Burlington.

Both our main dishes were over cooked to the point that my meat was so dry - it should have been moist and juicy.

Our server was excellent and interacted with us.

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
