    As usual, the food was fantastic and great service. I have to say, when I go somewhere for dinner with friends or family at 6 or 7. It would be nice to have a conversation. Live music is cool and all but through the dinner hours??? Start it at 8:00 please. Also, the chairs are cruel and unusual punishment through a meal. I stood for most of mine.

    Sadly a bit disappointed. We were not told of the dinner special before we had ordered and started to receive our food. We should have been warned that the warm olives we so spicy as to have been inedible for us. Two of three pizzas were very good but the third not so much. The night we went was supposed to have been ceilidh night but sadly they played about three tunes and that was all. Not what we had expected.

    Another amazing meal at Betty’s! This time, it was for Mother’s Day brunch with some very special people. Our server Ben was great. He was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed. We had a visit from the lovely Betty herself, and enjoyed hearing all of Eliot’s knowledge a watching him work the oven. We can’t wait to come back!

    Pizzas (The Davis and The Broderick) were fantastic. Cooked perfectly, flavourful toppings, very filling. Service was excellent, really attentive and incredibly friendly servers. Will definitely be returning.

    I made the reservation for my husband’s birthday. Not sure why you ask for the occasion when nothing is done differently? We were seated next to a large table of 6 who were very loud, combined with the music playing we could not have a conversation without yelling at eachother. The service was slow. Our pizza showed up and we still had salad plates waiting to be cleared. Pizza was mediocre- lacked flavour and was dry. The Meredith’s mushrooms were dry like cardboard. Our table for 2 was too small and we ended up having to use the a decorative table beside us for water glasses.

    We loved the cozy vibe and live caleigh (?) music. Menu is fun to read and lots of interesting options we wouldn't make at home which is always appreciated. We had the warm spicy olives and they were delicious and spicier than we thought (and we like spicy food). And the Who am I to dis a Brie. If you like hot melty brie this is a must try. We both had a pizza and almost burst at the seams. We got the Hutton and the Meredith with artichokes instead of bacon. We'd get them again! If you get a coffee, make sure the lid is pushed all the way down to avoid pouring hot coffee all over your lap... and don't be shy to ask for it strong. My coffee was more like diluted tea. In this shoulder season there's no herbal tea or any milk alternatives other than oat. Impressive wine selection - loved seeing so many local vineyards represented. The wood burning pizza oven, wooden beams and lights make it extra cozy. Booking through open table was easier and more efficient than calling to reserve.

    We had a wonderful time, great friendly service and delicious food. We come there a lot and usually it's more crowded and noisy, it was very nice to be there at a more quiet time. Some sound treatment to mitigate the reflective sounds in there would be very helpful (audio nerd here).

    Great meals all around. The only glitch was poor service after our meal. The waitress did not return to our table for about 35 minutes to offer dessert and unfortunately it did not allow time in our schedule to oder and enjoy one of their desserts ( everyone had wanted one- table of 7).

    Sounds like Betty owes you guys a couple of cookies! They are wildly popular and we are so sorry that we were out when you were in last! Let us rectify that - we'll hook you up!

    We were disappointed in our dinner last night (Feb 17) and the service. We are regulars and always choose the Ford pizza to eat with our wine. It was our first time back after the reopening (Jan 26 weekend) and found to lack the toppings and the dough was chewy and tough. The pizza also looked to be smaller compared to the many times we had the Ford pizza previously. The service from our server wasn’t the best as. Well. They did serve us, but did not check in with us to see how our meals was until we paid, and we did let her know how we found our meal. She did say they someone new was making the dough and pizzas but that was it.

    Betty's is always a wonderful time -- excellent service, attitude, food and drink. It's like being at someone's well appointed, fine and friendly dinner party. Hostess with the mostess and so delish open hearth fired pizza. Just go. It's a cozy nest of a restaurant.
