Over all food was good. A little noisy for conversation.
No dessert is ever worth $10.00 or tea/coffee @$4.00!!!
We were asked to politely leave as someone else was waiting for our table!!!!

West Plains Bistro is a wonderful restaurant! We thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, the food and the service. My husband had the pickerel which he said was delicious and I had the french onion soup (which was one of the best I ever had) and the warm beet salad, which was also very delicious. The zucchini fritters were also fabulous as an appetizer. There are lots of good menu options. We live in Etobicoke, and I wish we had this restaurant there! We'll be back next time we come to Burlington.

Both our main dishes were over cooked to the point that my meat was so dry - it should have been moist and juicy.

Our server was excellent and interacted with us.

We had a great experience this week at West Plains Bistro. The service was outstanding - at no point did we feel rushed, but at the same time the server was attentive to our needs. Food was excellent - we both enjoyed the "early bird" dining option and the meal was delicious, with good portions. I highly recommend this restaurant!

This was a 'day late' Mother's Day lunch for my Mom. We always enjoy visiting this restaurant. Service was OK. Our server was very frirndly and knowledgeable. However, there were only two servers on and I don't think she stopped by to check on our progress and we seemed to sit for a bit before the dishes being cleared and dessert offered.

However, parking is not easy or generous in the lot.

Thank you

I’ve been there a few times, usually for lunch, so I know what to expect and am never disappointed. The food is always good and the presentation of the salad with the salmon dish was a lovely surprise. The prices are on the higher side but I don’t mind because I know I’ll have a lovely dining experience. It was the first time there for my friend and she said she’d definitely go back.

Our experience was top notch. From the on-form registration to this follow-up. The food is always very good here and the venue is perfect for a business meal for 2 to 4 people. Service as always, is excellent. It is also a great place for a nice lunch or dinner with family and friends.

Early dinner and really enjoyed the experience. Two of us ordered from the menu, the other two the early bird special. The soup had incredible flavour and texture. The salmon was superb and a nice portion. The desert was interesting and playful. All of us agreed we would eat here again. The price was not out of line with what we ate so I'd say it was good value and great food.

I didn't realize when I made the reservation that it would be a high top table vs the dining room so the ambience was a little more bar style. An amazing restaurant and great place to dine regardless.
