Had a wonderful time at Rust brunching with my friend. Food is so elegant and service is so friendly. If you a lover of cheesecake - that's where you should go :)

Very good food quality and decent portions.

The eggs benedict on Sunday is done to perfection and is worth repeating.

My husband and I visited Rust to celebrate his birthday and really enjoyed it. We shared the Kung pao Brussel Sprouts to start and they were outstanding. I then had the steak frites, which was also delicious (and I couldn’t finish it so I brought the leftovers home and made myself an amazing steak sandwich the following day!) My husband had the parpadelle and really enjoyed it as well.
The restaurant gifted us a complimentary dessert for my husbands bday and he ordered the vanilla cremé brûlée. Yum!
Service was great and we would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends.

I know I put less stars at ambiance but 100% legit it's not their fault: it's covid!! Less people in a resto means less "happening". The waiter was amazing. The food outstanding. I always love to go. Covid has nothing on them! Please go so they stay open because they do things right.

Wife and I have been going here since it opened in 2016. The one place that lives up to our expectations every time. Never had a bad meal or service. They proclaim they have the best burger and they are absolutely right! Keep up the great work! See you next time

We have never had a bad meal or service at Rust. Outstanding restaurant, excellent staff and an amazing assortment of foods to try. It is by far my family's favorite place to eat. The kitchen staff is so welcoming and the food they produce from scratch shows a lot passion and dedication. The front of the house staff go above and beyond to make you feel at home and special when you go to Rust.... absolutely love Rust!

The food is a little on the pricey side. It it was fantastic!!! We felt safe on the patio and although it’s up against a busy street the way they have it setup you don’t really notice.

For booking a reservation of 3 a week prior to attending, I would have expected being put in a better spot. Not right by the opening and closing door for the patio. It was a chilly night which caused us to have to keep our jackets on by how many times the door was opening. That definitely put a damper in the night that was supposed to be celebrating a birthday. Burrata and Caesar Salad was delicious as app. The birthday boy and I both ordered the lamb, ordered medium rare, and his was perfect (thankfully) but mine was well done. After sending it back and it coming out so quick, I was surprised to see that it has been quickly cooked on one side but left to show the bright red colour. It was super fatty and not rendered down because it was done so quickly and there was spots where heat hadn’t even touched the meat so it was raw. But because it was done so quickly, the colour on the top was deceiving and it ended up being well done again. I finally settled on having something else, though my guests were done their meal by now. I ordered the filet which took some time but it was one of the best filets I’ve had. So exceptionally tender and flavourful. It turned the night around a bit. Thank you Matt for wonderful service!!

Difficult times right now during Covid but was impressed with even the wiping down of chairs when customers had left. We sat on the patio snd the heaters were on and were kept lovely and warm. The food is never disappointing and the servers always delightful.
Never disappointed when eating there

I love the food and the servers at Rust; my wife and I have dined there 4 times.

What I don't like is how LOUD the restaurant is. Even with only 3-4 other tables seated I always find myself having to yell across the table to speak with my wife. Not really conducive to a romantic brunch or dinner.

The decor at Rust is very nice, but I would suggest they look at adding architectural ceiling tiles that are sound absorbing. I'm sure they can find some that complement their aesthetic.
