Loved this cute place...the service provided by Dale was excellent (although she forgot to ask what drinks we wanted to have!!!).
Loved that we could watch the chefs working through the open kitchen and was amazed at how calmly they were executing the orders.
We were seated at the long table with raised seats-appeared to be a table for 12 at least- thank god that there was just one more couple at the other end of the table or we would be hitting each other's elbows and listening to everyone's conversations!! ( since we were the only two at the table at the beginning, we did not mind. My husband requested for one of the smaller tables for two. We were told that they were reserved, but we did not see anyone occupy one of the tables for two even by the time we left, which was more than an hour and a half later. By the time we left, which was about 7:50pm or so, half the restaurant was vacant. So wonder why they could not give us the table for two!!).
We did not let that deter our enjoyment because the food - right from the starters to the desserts - was truly amazing !!! We started off with the Crostone - which we both shared, followed by Ontario Lamb (hubby) and the Chicken (me). Both the dishes were awesome and so flavorful!!. We ended with Lemon Tart Brulee and Chocolate-Baily Creeme Brulle, both of which were excellent!!
We let Dale know that the food was awesome and she recommended the Brunch. Got to try that sometime.
All in all loved the place and our compliments to the two young Chefs and a third lady sous chef!!!
Would give this restaurant 4.8 !!!!
Food is spot on every single time we visit Rust Bistro! Great new spot - fantastic wine menu. Lovely staff!
The staff were very friendly. The burger and brussel sprouts were amazing. Short ribs meat was so tender.
Great food, great service. Nice atmosphere convenient
Great food, great service, fun atmosphere. Love Rust
Tried Rust to get away from downtown Burlinton spots. Very pleasing meal. Good service. A nice spot away from the downtown. Will return in the future.
Great food and excellent service. Cool cocktails.
What I love about this place is that you can taste the pride they have in everything they serve...and the service is always excellent. We will be back!
Great ambiance. Great food. Had the lamb... was fabulous.
Been here twice and impressed with menu, food presentation and great service. Out of the way for me but worth the drive.i would frequent this place if I lived nearby. My daughter and her husband are in the neighbourhood and it is their favourite place to eat.
Fantastic night. Will be back again and again.
Fabulous restaurant, amazing food and service. Have eaten here on several occasions and the food and service are consistently good. The bison and boar burger is the best I have ever tasted along with the parmesan truffle fries. The planks have a really good variety of unique meats and cheeses and are generous for an appetizer. Good selection of wines at reasonable prices. Atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable...if I were to make one small note of criticism it would be that the volume gets a wee bit loud during peak times...not that that would ever stop me from coming here but people we have dined with have made that comment...not sure that there is anything that could be done about it...it's part of the lively and friendly atmosphere. Service is friendly and relaxed but attentive. Has become one of our favourite local spots. Reserve early if you want a good table.
Great to have more than a cookie cutter restaurant offering in north Burlington. Menu is small but creative and more than adequate to meet various tastes. Ambience is lively but not overly so. Still easy to have decent one-on-one conversation.
I went to Rust a few weeks ago with a friend and we shared a plank and appetizers, which were delicious. As we sat near the kitchen, I was able to observe the care in the presentation and preparation, in addition to the great flavours and freshness of ingredients which we obviously appreciated. This time around I enjoyed a steak tartare prepared in the most authentic tradition, while my husband enjoyed arctic char, not a common menu offering around here. We love that fish and the Rust kitchen honoured it more than adequately. My son went for the comforting security of steak frites and was not disappointed. We will be back :-)
A last minute reservation led us to Rust on a Saturday night. Having never been before the four of us didn’t know what to expect. From the very beginning we were impressed. Our server was knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient. The dishes arrived with a pleasant pace and everything we ate was fantastic.
We can’t wait to go back.
Great service, open kitchen and incredible food! Will be back for sure!
Every dish from apps to desserts were beautifully presented and the flavours were outstanding. Even the complimentary bread basket was irresistible. Service was friendly and attentive. An excellent experience.
Delightful menu....charming and intelligent waitstaff and kitchen staff. Loyal customer building!
Pleasant Surprise, my wife and i totally enjoy the food and the experience.
Will be one of my go to places
LOVED everything about it
Will defiantly be back
The food was excellent as was the service. More choices of food might be a good idea especially for those who dont eat fish and are lactose-free.
Amazing ambiance , amazing service and amazing food. Can’t even begin to express the happiness I feel here
My wife and I go at least once a month. The service and food are very good (hard to say great but close). They change the menu every once in a while so surprise :-) We have tried pretty much everything on the menu and we were never disappointed. The chef and his staff are engaging and always willing to explain what they are doing with a smile. One and a half steps up from a good roadhouse. See you next month.
This was my third time in the last month. Food is terrific. Service excellent from the hostess to the wait staff. Creative items on the menu. I highly recommend the Kung Pao brussel sprouts as a starter. I will keep coming back.
This local gem never disappoints! The menu is always changing and scrumptious options delight any palate.
I had the stuffed chicken breast (brie, spinach and truffle mushrooms) and it was the best chicken dish I have ever had. I have been about 4 times since it opened in 2016, and I have always had a great experience. Yes the music can be a bit loud but it is great 70's rock. The age demographic was mixed, but I would say late twenties and up. The cocktails and appetizers are exciting and delicious! The chef and the young staff she oversees are professional and skilled. Bravo!
The steak frites was pretty hard to enjoy with our dull butter knives.
We attended to celebrate anniversaries with another couple and were immediately welcomed and seated at a corner table near the bar. We were then presented with 4 glasses of Prosecco on the house. Our server/bartender was very attentive (but not overly) throughout our evening. All of the food was prepared expertly in their open kitchen and tasted delicious. I would certainly recommend Rust Bistrobar to anyone looking for a top notch dinner in a relaxing atmosphere.
We had the most amazing time at Rust celebrating my husband’s birthday!! Our server Kate was warm, welcoming and so efficient. She had a great rapport with us but still super professional. Our meals were delicious, and on Kate’s recomendation we tried a few appetizers that proved to be so creative and different from the way we had had them before! Especially the brussel sprouts, the crispy broccoli, and the crostone, a different take on bruschetta!
Our mains were superb, I had the lamb dish which was cooked so perfectly to my liking! It was so tender and juicy,accompanied with fingerling potatoes and veggies that were so flavourful!! My dinner companions had the risotto with lump crab, and their signature bison burger....both delicious!!
The meal wa served beautifully timed, no rushing and at the same time no long waits between courses!!
The atmosphere was lively and the open kitchen added some lovely aromas wafting throughout the restaurant! Would we come back again??? In aheart beat!!
Our Waitress was amazing we were splitting the Wine and one meal and it was no problem great service nothing was too much trouble but I feel bad because I can't remember her name.
My favorite by far. The food is excellent with amazing affordable prices. Wine selection, cheese boards and the adventurous meat selection on the menu honestly make you break out of your usual comfor zone of ordering the same thing over and over again. Even the burger is phenomenal!!!! 💕 😜
Anniversary amazing waiter
Wonderful food, great service and ambiance. Our favourite spot in Burlington!
Another awesome experience! Looking forward to coming back!
Excellent restaurant. We have never been disappointed.
Rust is amazing! Love their food! We've had their crab cakes, burger, steak, scallops, lamb, Brussel sprouts and cheesecake - all were absolutely fabulous.
Outstanding. Love the uniqueness of each plate and the class of cutlery, glassware.
This place is the perfect mixture of chic , rustic and modern.
Kudos to the kitchen staff, bartenders and servers. Great night out.
Ate here twice now. Food and service was very good. Had the Korean cauliflower, risotto and beef short ribs...all were delicious. Would definitely go back again.
Best meal we've had out in a while. The Crab Cakes and Burrata were awesome as were the Scallop Risotto and Braised Beef shortribs.
OMG!!! This place will change your life. The food was exceptional and the service even better.
