We enjoyed an excellent Sunday Brunch recently. Lots of great choices on the menu. Everything we ordered was excellent. Great service as well. We will definitely return.

We ate dinner on the patio for the first time, let me start by saying it's a cozy set up and very comfortable!! This particular evening was extremely hot, however, Rust does has a mister system in place. The unfortunate part was, that they allowed one table to dictate whether it was on or not. This was very disappointing, as most people wanted it on and instead of a consensus, they allowed one poor sport to ruin it for everyone else. I propose (like other places), you have sign indicating that in warmer weather this comes on intermittently. This will warn patrons in advance and if they have an issue with that, they can choose to sit inside or place themselves accordingly.

Dinner was again spectacular, the wine fantastic and our sever fun, energetic and very attentive.

Highly recommend !!

Our only disappointment was when our waiter told us Rust had been open for two years now. Wish I had found it earlier. Loved it!

Food was great; Service was very good; the only down side was the temperature in the restaurant. It felt as warm inside the restaurant as it was outside (heat wave)... It was uncomfortable for all 5 in our dinner party. It made what would have been a top rate experience questionable...

Thank you

Went here to celebrate my 30th birthday. Food was absolutely outstanding. The new menu was just as good as any other I have tried. Was my hubby's first time there and he already wants to go back. Our server Drew was fantastic! Personable, accommodating and quick. We will be seeing you again soon!

The place is nice and the food was great. The disappointment was we looked online for a restaurant offering sea bass for my mothers birthday dinner, this was her one request. I found it online at Rust and booked, and put in the comment section that we were specifically coming for a birthday and she wanted the sea bass so please not to sell out. We get there, no mention of happy birthday and no sea bass on the menu. I guess there is either no point in adding comments to open table bookings, or this restaurant just does not care to read them. Maybe they need the business, but if I read someone was coming for a specific item, that we no longer offered and could not be bothered to update our website over... maybe I'd let them know, but that is just me. I won't go back because of this experience, apart from my workplace is looking to book the Christmas party there lol.. but as long as you aren't going for something you really want then sure it's a nice place.

Enjoy Rust twice for bday celebrations. The Ontario lamb gnocchi dish is fantastic, steak and frites are an absolute hit, the burger was gigantic and the steak tartar and Cesar salad are outstanding!! Drinks and service are wonderful too :) finally found a local gem

Good food and fantastic service. Everything was great except there were no fans or AC. Open kitchen + 30 degree weather does not make for a comfortable environment. A few ceiling fans would help, I was actually sweating.

Always find the service to be very friendly and prompt which makes the occasion a success. The food is always delicious and I love the cauliflower dish. Excellent choices for a vegan diet. Staff is very friendly and gracious. All of these things makes you want to come back. I have recommend Rust to many friends who have nothing but great things to say. Keep up the great work that you do in creating a friendly atmosphere!! Your pricing on food and drink are great as well. Thanks again for a great time at the Rust Bistro!

The food was probably the best food I have ever had at a restaurant it was simply amazing. The service was also fairly good but the food took around 30-45 minutes to come. The overall atmosphere was also pretty good, if not a little noisy. Overall if you are looking for great food and are prepared to pay for it rust is just what you are looking for

We're never disappointed with the food at Rust! We always start with the crab cakes because they're amazing. The filet mignon, the bison burger and the scallops are all excellent. I've also tried the bison pappardelle, but it isn't up to the same WOW standards as the rest.

My first time visiting RUST. We were warmly greeted and seated. Our server was a little on the slow side. I had to ask the manager for water. My meal was a little disappointing. I had the lamb. I found it unappealing. I couldn’t make out what I was eating half the time. The gravy/sauce was very rich and a bit oily. But my friend had the sea bass and he loved it.
I had a taste, it was nicely poached. I had notified when making a reservation that it was my friend’s birthday. I also let the server know. No special treatment or offerings.
I dine out frequently, so have lots to compare to. Not sure if I would be back in a hurry, or recommend to friends.

Absolutely amazing! Service was outstanding, great vibe, awesome food. I would remove the sign above the restroom hallway, it was tacky and not in keeping with the rest of the decor.

My boyfriend and I came to celebrate our anniversary. I booked a seat at the “countertop” and upon arrival were placed at the kitchen countertop, which in my opinion is the best place to have dinner here. Watching their chefs prepare everything, including the tomahawk steak, is something special. We’ve been here in the past and will definitely be returning.

We especially appreciated a vegan option that wasn't a veggie burger or pasta! The Portobello Wellington was delicious we could eat it once a week!!

We had an overall great experience and the food was quite good. We put that we were celebrating our first year anniversary and typically restaurants do something nice for you. They only wished us towards the end. Not a terrible thing but it’s always nice when the restaurant goes over and above to make you feel great especially for rare occasions

We would likely return again.

This will be our new favorite neighborhood go to. The food was very good. You know you're going to have a good meal when the aroma hits you upon walking through the (hard to find) door. Our party ordered the meat platter appetizer, and it was generous. The Risotto was excellent. The paperdelle and boar was good. The truffle, Parmesan fries are our new favorite way to eat fries.
Hope the business does well as it would be a shame to see this gem fail.

Very much enjoyed my meal and experience at Rust. Would recommend that the menu online match the menu in restaurant. I was very much looking forward to a dessert I saw online but it was not the same in the restaurant. Other than that, I would highly recommend this bistro.
