The Bread Bar serves delicious food and has great atmosphere. The Sunday brunch is pricey, but so worth it!

I visited for Sunday Brunch with some friends and family. It took quite a while to get seated even though I made reservations. The food on the brunch menu was alright, I don’t recall any item that stood out to be above average. The pizza however was amazing as always. I’ll definitely visit again for dinner.

I've been to Bread Bar lots of times and will keep coming back. I ordered something I didn't like this time, so consequently rated the food lower. Usually it's delicious.

Great staff and ambience do not make up for mediocre food. Bread tasting plate was very good, the burning rosemary very off-putting.
Falafel bowl good, but 4 falafel and hummus and salad - $19???, risotto not very good, - over cooked rice ( not arborio rice, which it should be), grainy sauce, very strong, scant broccoli. This was pretty much rice and cheese, $20?
Smoked salmon soup not advertised as Manhattan style, but was. Tomato base with salmon?Odd. Very over-cooked salmon; extremely chewy.
The coffee was good, the featured cider too. The featured beer, swampy.

Meals were good, not many gluten free options but plenty of vegetarian options. Service was just okay, nothing extraordinary. I would recommend it for business meals that are on the more casual side.

Great pizza and wine. Bread pudding was good as well. Service was okay, had to remind the waitress to bring the wine we ordered. Mussels were very tasty and so was the garlic bread it came with but why only one slice when there were two of us? Asked for more but took too long, while waiting for more bread 3 different wait staff tried to take the mussels plate away :)

The only thing I was disappointed in was that they do not offer any special treatment for a special occasion. It was my daughter's 25th birthday and Bread Bar is her favourite restaurant. I had hoped there would be some gesture from the restaurant to recognize her birthday. I even asked ahead of time when I made my reservation, but the answer was no.

I made our reservation on-line and received a confirmation via email. Several days prior to our reservation, I received a voice message from the restaurant asking me to call to confirm again. I did not appreciate this. I then received another email confirmation on the day of our reservation.
When I arrived I was greeted first and secondly told that we had our table for 1.75 hours. I abhor this practice and find it offensive.
My friend's meal was twice not handled correctly; the requested item to be left out was left in and when returned back to her from the kitchen, some of the item was still there. The manager addressed this and our server was pleasant but our overall experience was poor. I will not return.

My fiance and I like to try new (non chain) restaurants and were pleasantly blown away by this place! The food was incredible. We had muscles and arugula salad to start and then shared the apple and bacon pizza. You could tell the ingredients were extremely fresh and our server (who was so friendly and attentive) let us know that the ingredients come from the owners farm, which is another reason to support this local business! The establishment was fun and cozy and we ended up sharing one of their alcoholic milkshakes at the bar after our meal because we did not want to leave. We will be back very soon and this time with a few friends to share the experience!

An excellent departure from the usual brunch. Small plates made it possible to experience a wider variety of the kitchen specialties. All were well prepared and delicious. The salad and dessert bar was not all that extensive but what was offered was very good. The tasty berry pie with a crumble topping topped off the brunch really well.

The servers were attentive, friendly and kept the selections coming with no interruptions. A job well done.

Would of liked to see additional salad choices i.e. Ceasar Salad with Romaine rather than kale (who eats kale??). Also, choice of draft beer was limited. Would of liked an IPA with lower alcohol content. Only one available was a 6%++. Very good, but you can't have 2..

We had a great night and the staff went out of thier way! I mistakenly booked a table online for 2 so they were surprized when we showed up on a busy Saturday night before Christmas with a group of 6! The hostess worked her magic and reorganized the whole dining room to fit us in! Thank you for saving my skin and providing us with a wonderful experience. Pizzas are great and so was the crispy duck leg. Burgers are always a hit.

I had a business lunch at the beginning of the holiday season. Food was great. Value was there. Service was amazing. It is a BUSY place. Reservations really necessary during peak season. I asked for a quiet place, it was provided. Attentive service and allergies were dealt with very professionally. Thank you!
