Ordered a soup to start and two large pizzas to share. The pizzas are very big and good value, however, found them to be overly salty. Service was fine but nothing special.

The food was superb and the service was impeccable. When I got my pizza it was not quite what I expected as far as toppings go as I ordered something called the Bee Sting and the centre part of it seemed too mushy but I was not going to complain. The waitress asked how my food was and she seemed genuinely interested because I had asked her about the pizza beforehand. I said it was good but next time I would get something different as it was a bit mushy in the middle. She was very happy to get me a whole new different kind of pizza even after I had one piece. It was not a long wait and when the meal was over she brought over some free desserts in a box to go for the inconvenience. Now that is fantastic service. The wine is quite expensive which is typical for higher end restaurant. Linen napkins. The pizza crust is divine and we really enjoyed our meal. We will be back!

My husband wasn’t 100% on going here for dinner but we were given a gift card so wanted to try it out. From the wine, to the food, to the service, our evening was excellent!

Our service was amazing! We never felt rushed and ordered each course separately.

The calamari was to die for!!! Definitely one of the best we’ve ever had! We also had the Lil’ Stinker pizza. So good! We also shared the kale Cesar salad. Yum!

We’ll definitely be back!!!

Always love going to the Bread Bar however the seating in some areas is sort of terrible and you feel like you’re dining with everyone around you which takes away from your meal.

The only thing we found was that with 5 people at the table there wasn't enough table space when our large size pizza came. But otherwise we love the Bread Bar and will be back in a week or so.

We had a 10:30 sitting and were seated right away. It was very busy and our server worked hard to keep up with everything. Food came out as it was prepared and sometimes with gaps in between but it never took too long. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and prefer the concept of ordering small tapas rather than heading to a brunch bar laden with food that people invariably take more than they can eat. The tapas dishes were just the right size to allow you to order 3 or 4 for yourself and enjoy wonderful flavors.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

I always enjoy the Bread Bar. On this visit they happily swapped asparagus for steak in the pasta dish and in the past I have brought vegan friends who have been able to eat well. The new mushroom app is good, but I found the cheese sauce a bit bland. The Arnold Palmer was tasty, the bread plate was a big hit, and the pizzas were excellent.

We visited Bread Bar for brunch on a Sunday. The restaurant was extremely busy upon our arrival, which is a mixed blessing. The servers were doing their best to keep up, but due to the amount of guests and how few servers were taking orders, there was a bit of a wait at times. The runners bringing the food out were unfortunately a bit careless, with some stopping just short of throwing the food on the table, without any real regard for who was to receive what. The food itself was good, though a few items were not as described on the menu (this is forgivable as the substitutions were good). The salad bar at the bar was well laid out, with a decent selection and well presented. Overall a good experience and a good value when you factor in that two drinks are included in the price.

We were so happy to have our son's birthday dinner at the Bread Bar. Our reservation wasn't ready on time but the waiter brought us some very yummy treats to tide us over and they were very gracious with our service. The pizza, soup, and salad were excellent. Nice beer selection. We will definitely come back. Thanks!
