Hidden gem in this neighborhood. First time going and definitely coming back. Amazing wine selection.
Finally got a chance to try this little gem. It is small but cozy and I was very pleased with my overall experience. The staff was personable and helpful in both the wine and menu selection. I was even offered a sample of the recommended wine....much appreciated. Dinner was very good....Parisian gnocchi! I now want to return to try breakfast. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Charming neighbourhood find for brunch offering fine meat & cheese boards and wine list. Our hostess/waitress recommended the Croque Madame; it was very good and hit the spot. Smart and sleek design for restaurant space. Cozy vibe and get the feel that this is local favourite hang out for drinks. It was our first time and hope to come back for pre-show dinner.
Meh. If you like cactus club and moxies etc you will probably be happy here 😊
I met a friend for a fairly impromptu early dinner. We had a lovely waitress who was quick to make suggestions, all of which were very good. It is the perfect neighbourhood spot. A word of caution, they used to have a full bar but serve only (delicious) wine now.
Server was rude
The room was really nice and the service was great. I found the menu a little limited and a bit over priced, but the food was still good. I'd go back again for drinks at least.
excellent, like always
Fantastic food and a lovely atmosphere. The gnocchi dish is perfect.
What a find! Relaxed atmosphere with an extensive wine list and wonderful dishes to either share or savour on your own! Try the seared scallops!!!!
Quality of food is outstanding. Everything was prepared to perfection, from the limited, yet diverse menu.
First lunch visit to Stable after 3 dinners. Small but effective menu. Like dinner, food is spot on. Not delicate, not heavy. Just spot on. Not many gd places outside of downtown open and appropriate for biz lunch. Stable wasn’t busy, but I hope they manage to remain open for lunch. Will become my “stable” go to.
Excellent service and knowledgeable wait-staff about their menu and in-house specialties. We enjoyed being seated at a quiet table in the nook which made for good conversation. The house made chicken liver pate was smooth and flavourful and the wine as also good.
Had an amazing lunch at the Stable House last Friday! Everything was perfect. The server was very knowledgable and lovely to chat with and the food was amazing!! We can't wait to come back for dinner!
Awesome food, quaint and good ambience.
Usually great, this last visit was lacking. Service was not very good, kitchen was slow, and server was more focused on folding napkins and polishing glasses than the tables being served. The food was very good, however the menu needs a refresh.
I had a lovely Sunday brunch
they run happy hour all day here on sundays too, which is nice
if you haven't had the croque madame, get on it
Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Attentive but not intrusive. Great food & bubbles, good beginning to a night out at the theater. We’ll definitely be back.
Our server, Cher, was fantastic. Every dish was perfect. Can't wait to come back! Sarah
Came here for Father's Day. Although the restaurant was pretty, was disappointed with my Eggs Benny. The flavours didn't work well together, the coffee was weak, and the service was slow. Wouldn't recommend.
Amazing food, but the service was very poor and they weren’t busy. Took over 20 minutes to get our Americano’s. Then had to ask for our bill 25 minutes after finishing.
Super service, nice food, beer and wine. I found it noisy even though they have a fantastic cork wall!
Ate before show at the Stanley. Great service. clean and open in style. Short menu, small,medium and large plates. Good choices. We had a meat and cheese plater ($18) and good choices from chief. Nicely presented. I was recommended the chick pea gnocchi - and while nicely presented,found it a bit heavy. My wife had the pasta with bacon and cheese, it was great. Chocolate mousse dessert was small but stunning. Strawberry shortcake was a bit dry - but local strawberries. Great and very attentive service. Would go back again. Got a bit noisy with the space was full not we could still hear each other. Good wine list and the server was very knowledgeable and helpful
Our first time here and we really enjoyed it. The wine was a bit expensive but excellent choices and quality. My tomato soup was the way it should be - smooth, flavourful with subtle seasoning. My partner's reubin was unlike any he had eaten before, the meat tender and tasty with a generous melting of cheese on top. We will go back.
Really great friendly, knowledgeable waitress. Good food, nice relaxed atmosphere.
The place is nice, but the service wasn't good. I asked the waitress to explain the wine flight and what wines they were and she didn't know, the wines were also an acquired taste, very bitter and fruity which isn't mine or my friends taste, which I told the waitress after and she agreed they're not your typical wines. You would expect for $28 for a flight you've have some heads up prior to them being delivered. Service generally was slow and unknowledgeable.
We really like this restaurant . Staff is friendly, and the food is very good. I like that it is quiet and you can actually have a conversation with the people you are having lunch, or dinner with
A nice dinner before a show at the Stanley theatre
We went here for a quiet dinner one Wednesday evening. Our server was horrible. Rushed, stressed and made us feel like she had other places to be. The restaurant was maybe half full while we were there. The food was fantastic, I just wish the service had been better.
My girlfriend and I came into the restaraunt. Our table wasn’t ready when we got there. Waited for 5 minutes. Which is fine. Say down, a waitress didn’t come over for 10 minutes. When she came, she dropped off one menu for the both of us. She didn’t come back after that. We saw her standing behind the bar and chatting the bar people. We waited for 10 more minutes and left. She didn’t even notice us as we were walking out the door, past the bar. Terrible place to spend a special night with someone special.
This is my third visit to Stable House Bistro. I enjoyed a birthday lunch with a friend last year and have since been back for dinner with friends. It is a great venue for a pre-theatre meal. The menu allows for sharing and has small and mid-size plates plus cheese and meat boards. We have had excellent, friendly and helpful service on each visit. Good wine and beer choices. A lovely, cozy, casual dining spot, with history.
Definitely will be back.
Food was decent but not spectacular...We had the Parisian gnocchi w/ duck leg, the pork belly, and the arctic char tartar, with the duck leg the best of the three. The pork belly needs a tad more seasoning and the arctic char needed to be served at a colder temp.
Overall, the value for money is lacking and it may be due to our misunderstanding of the menu. With their "small, medium, large" categories for their dishes, I had expected "large" plates to be entrees, but they were a mere few bites each. The pork belly I had for $24 had at most 3-4 oz worth of pork belly + pulled pork on the plate.
A delicious ,tasty lunch with a chilled rosé and excellent service. I felt as if I was in France and topped it off with an expression, just as it should be. Bravo
Nice restaurant tucked away from the main road. The hostess/ waitress was very attentive & greeted you right away. There were only 2 waitresses on duty for a Saturday evening. They took turns being both hostesses & waitresses.
Their food were quite delicious. We started with their scrumptious kale salad & chicken pate which melted in your mouth like butter. Very nice starters but it took awhile for each to come to your table. When we asked for more bread for the pate it took it took another 15 min for 3 pieces of toast to get yo your table.
I had the duck confit with gnocchi for the main course. The gnocchi was delicious. The duck would have been better served as a whole leg instead of being pulled apart into shreds.
My husband tried the pork &he enjoyed it very much.
Portions of the mains were quite small but they tasted very nice.
Casual tiny spot with sophisticated elegance
Great wine list
When we arrived, the host showed us our reserved table and we got seated in no time. We were offered water immediately.
After we ordered our food, most of our food came shortly after. However, after we finished our appetizer which is a liver pate and the knife was used for the pate and I left it on the pate plate thinking the waitress will change another knife but she kept saying this is your knife and give it back without offering a new knife. Since we share most of the appetizers and no one came to change our plates. When most of our entree arrived but missing one, we just realized the order was wrong. Would it be better to repeat the order after taking the orders to ensure it was ordered correctly. We asked to get the order put in immediately but it didn’t come for another 30 mins. When everyone has already finished and still waiting. If t really will take this long, the waitress should advise the time it is going to take or offer something else instead. Then I asked for the bill since the order still has not come, then she said it will be ready in a few mins. Offer to pack to go. And I said ok. But she brought the plate over thinking I may want a few bite first. If I do, I would have asked not to pack to go. It was a very poor experience because it could be due to lack of experience or lack or staff.
Great food and ambiance! The server with the lavender hair was both friendly and knowledgeable with the wine and food menu!
It was our first visit to the Stable House, we will return. My wife has some food issues and the server and chef went well beyond in accommodating her. The wine by the glass offerings were great and reasonably priced considering the calibre of vineyards. Our dinner and appetizers were also outstanding, great flavour, healthy and very reasonably priced again.
Husband and mine date night
