The chef made us a special app that we had in the past but was no longer on the menu. Can’t believe they did it for us abs we were so appreciative that they accommodated us. Over and above!
Service was fantastic as always. We had this young lady before and she was and always is wonderful.

We all had the soup of the day and all agreed it was very good. Potatoe & Leek I believe. The turkey Brie sandwich was delicious. Quite large. Beet & kale salad was ordered as well and enjoyed. The reason it isn’t a 5 star rating was that it was very noisy. The high ceiling I think accounts for that. We literally had trouble hearing each other. I myself would not return because of this so I can’t consciously can’t recommend to others.

This place is usually great. Although, I was a bit underwhelmed on this particular dining experience. I had a small stone in my lentils. I found it by biting on it and nearly breaking one of my already irritatingly fragile teeth.
My waitress didn’t seem too concerned. And after speaking with the kitchen, stated it’s because of the lentil harvesting process. Uhhh..ok. Although it wasn’t a major issue, management should have offered either a discount or something complementary...🤷🏼‍♀️
At the very least, maybe write in the description of the Mediterranean bowl that small stones may be found in it. That way customers are prepared to possibly either bust a tooth, or..be miffed by the lack of concern over gravel in their bowl.

Food was amazing. I hade the baked rigatoni with short rib as my entree, and every bit from start to finish was a delight. I tried to stop early to have some left overs, but I couldn’t help myself. My partner had the leventine vegan pizza with bagel seasoned crust. OMG that was delicious too.

My only regret is I could have used some bread to go with my pasta to scoop sauce, and I was legitimately surprised given the name of the place that there was no bread in sight.

great food but the tables were too close together before covid, and now they are way too close. I don't need to near the conversation from the next table, particularly when they are even trying to be discreet.

I frequent both Locke St. and James only because I like the food. The noise level in both locations is terrible!! You have to lean across the table to hear each other.

I was disappointed with my table as it was very close to a large group. I asked to have another table (3 choices) and was told they were reserved. By the end of my meal 2 tables were still empty. I also had a reservation but was not allowed to change tables. There was no reason that I could not have had one of those tables. The food was fabulous though. I will give them that!

The service was good, when we entered they tried to put us at a table next to the front hostess desk when the rest of the restaurant was empty, the food was so so the pizza was doughy not cooked right through. I put in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday but nothing was done or said about it, why bother to ask.

We chose it because it appeared on a list of top brunch places in Hamilton. The great reputation is well deserved. The brunch menu was incredible, every option sounded delicious. The ones we chose were all delicious! We also loved the decor.

Bread Bar never disappoints — but this visit was especially good. Took my visiting parents, who thought the pizza (Bee Sting, Meat Mountain) might be the best they’ve eaten.

This place is AWESOME!! Great vibe, excellent service and AMAZING food! You can tell the people who cook the food are passionate about what they do. We tried the Brussels sprouts, cheeseburger w fries and Quinoa burger w kale Caesar salad. All. Were. Delicious. We will be going back for sure. Highly recommend! :)

Diverse and intriguing menu selections delivered as deliciously described with knowledgable wait staff. Ambience supported conversation. Order came in a timely fashion. The unique apple/bacon pizza was a taste treat for each of us. Will become our regular celebration location in Hamilton.
