The food was very good and our waiter was excellent. He was very attentive and made some very good recommendations.

I loved the open kitchen concept, it makes it seem personal.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a dinner at RUST. It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten at a restaurant that exceeded my expectations on all counts...food, service, ambience and overall quality. We had a great dinner and were treated like royalty. We will definitely be back soon!

we've been going to Rust since it opened and probably won't again - the food was very disappointing and way too salty and the noise level was brutal because anyone trying to have a conversation had to yell to be heard

I’ve been to Rust a couple times. My first experience was awesome ie food was top notch and we loved our server; however, my second visit was not so good in terms of service. Our server was dismissive and was not very welcoming. We tried to engage in small talk, but he had no interest in having any interaction with us unless transactional. The restaurant was not busy, so it’s not like we were holding him up. Growing up in the restaurant business and having been a server myself for many years I know how important it is for patrons to enjoy their dining experience. The food is a big part of the experience, but in my opinion the service is equally important.

Once a table was seated beside us our waiter completely forgot about us.. left the machine, had to rip my own copy of the receipt..no good bye or thank you have a nice evening, nothing. The female waitress we had last time was fantastic!

Everything at Rust was great. I made a reservation for two for Valentine's Day without seeing or dining their before. We were very pleased with our decision. The restaurant in located in a retail plaza but on the inside they do a good job transforming the space to feel like you're in a trendy downtown neighborhood. Our server was great and very professional. All the food was delicious we had a plank, scallops, osso bucco and lamb. Everything was great and plated very nicely.

Only negative we were seated in right front of the washrooms, even with a reservation. Another couple came after us and based on observation they didnt seem to have a reservation and were seated at a better table. On a positives side was one of the best scallop appetizer and lamb dish we ever had.

Amazing food, amazing service - highly recommended. Open style seating is a little loud though, so if you’re looking for quiet intimate conversation, save it for later. You’ll love the experience overall though!!!!

Will absolutely be back as soon as possible - 5 stars across the board.

I love the fact that this restaurant has taken a stance against using straws and this is why I chose to go here. Also I absolutely love the fact that they created such a unique vegetarian option!! It was such a nice change not to just have one option on the menu. I will be back!!

Our table was close to the washroom, not ideal and every time the front door would open we would feel the draft of cool air across our feet.
Food was INCREDIBLE and the service was great.
Thank you and we will be back!

I (we) continue to enjoy Rust. I have commented on the noise issue in other reviews. Unfortunately it continues to be an issue. On Sunday the place was 1/2 full and still trying to carry on a conversation was extremely difficult. I recommend as I have in the past to bring in a sound engineer and have him install dampers/baffles to help lesson the noise level.
