    The food was superb. It was very busy and noisy in the main restaurant. We were on the patio and probably a little early in the year for ambiance. Waited too long for drinks but overall it was excellent

    Outstanding and very enjoyable, food and service exceptional. Gentle recommendation to turn down the music/bass; it made it difficult to have a conversation and perhaps add some softer finishes to absorb some noise.

    We celebrated our 43rd anniversary here. rust did not disappoint. Sam our waitress was top notch, she knew the menu inside & out including wines & cocktails. The Prosecco had the tiniest bubbles. I've never had anything like it, a frosted glass at $14 is well worth it (wish we could buy it here). We will definitely be back.

    Everything was perfect - fantastic service, unique cocktails, the Brie en Croute is a must-have starter, we both had the brown butter cod (delicate, flavourful), and finished by sharing the cheesecake. Already planning our next visit

    Birthday…it was okay but too pricey and charcuterie news was too hard and all the meats were spicy. The patio needs some planes/flowers and heaters for night.

    Always a great meal at Rust. An early dinner after a long day to celebrate our anniversary. Chef’s table and able to watch the staff take such care with each meal. Chatted with chef about the process and the secret to the drilled meat spice mix.

    Ravioli was disappointing in flavour and size of portion. Morrocan chicken and Risotto with scallops were both good. We sat outside on the patio which wasn’t ready. Planters had dead flowers in them from last year and patio looked like it hadn’t been cleaned up yet to have guests sitting outside. Overall I found the prices have gone up and the portions have gotten. smaller. Not sure if I will go back. Our server was great so she made the experience good bit the food was mediocre which was surprising because I have been ti Rust many times last summer

    Food was excellent as usual but would have been nice if our Server brought our bill to us. We tried endlessly to get Her attention but she kept running past us to gather cutlery from the kitchen. Finally went to the Bar where someone finally helped us

    We were looking forward to a great evening at rust as we had heard great things about it. We were told we were the last table at 8:00 so no rush to leave. According to the website you are open until 12. At 9:40 we were the only people left in the restaurant and our server did his best to make us feel comfortable but when we asked for more drinks the bartender rudely replied that her bar was closed. After that we felt as though we were being pushed out and left shortly after 10. It was very uncomfortable.

    Went to Rust Bistro Bar with friends for brunch on Easter Sunday. The atmosphere was really nice, and the food was really great. The only cons were that the hostesses at the front door were lacking professionalism, and that we felt a bit rushed to order our food. Overall a good experience and we would go back.

    Enjoyable meal at Rust - portions are large which is great as it aligns with pricing. boccacini salad was excellent as was beet salad. Crab cakes were OK and Arctic char was delicious. Cheesecake was also very good. As this was our first visit we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will return and recommend to others.
