About the restaurant
At essence bistro, we believe what makes food great is the use of fresh produce. Working with the seasons in Ontario, we get to capture the freshness using everything at its peak. The local bounty inspires us to create seasonal dishes and energizes our team to share our flavours with our guests!

Our Chef has over 20 years of experience in the culinary industry in the most prestigious establishments in the world, and knowledge of several cuisines bringing you a world fusion experience.

We are located in the charming Old Market Lane pocket known as the original Downtown Woodbridge, found on Woodbridge Avenue and a short drive from neighbouring communities such as Kleinburg, Nobleton, Bolton, and Caledon.

We had a fantastic experience yesterday. My wife and I eat at restaurants often and we truly enjoyed this one. Nicklaus was our server and he was absolutely fabulous. He was attentive, pleasant and funny. Never far away but gave us space too. A true professional. Food was great, but service is everything. Thx so much Sir Nick and Earls.

The restaurant was quiet so conversation was easy. The service was swift. The food was enjoyable. The non-alcoholic pina colada was delicious. Zero complaints. Yes, I would go here again.

We were seated on time and servers were very friendly and efficient. The cocktails and beer we had were delicious. The prices are a bit on the high side but that being said the food was fresh, and delicious. Serving sizes were extremely generous. The restaurant is a bit loud but not unbearably so. Would not bother with french fries next visit but get a side salad instead - the caesar salad got rave reviews.

Very expensive, so if you have a family of 3 or more can be pricey
