Amazing value and taste. Will continue to be my #1 choice of restaurants.
One of the very few restaurants that still bakes everything in house.
The desert at the West Pains Bistro you have to try it is out of this world!!!

This Restaurant is a Burlington Gem. Always a great experience. It has a very nice relaxed feeling to it. The two young women that served us ----you could not ask for nicer waitresses.

Food selection very good, but the noise level detracted from the overall experience. I am coming again on Aug. 23 and will be disappointed if again the noise level is unacceptably loud.

This was my third time to the WPB for dinner. I have yet to be disappointed with the service, food and relaxed atmosphere The server, Dave, was fantastic, knowledgeable and very friendly. I had the warm beet salad as a starter, beautifully presented & absolutely delicious. For the entree I had the boeuf bourguignon with a demi-glaze sauce, smashed potatoes and roasted yellow beets. The meat was so tender I didn't really need to use a knife. With a special coffee to round off the meal. I have recommended WPB to my friends and I will be going again & again. A small quaint restaurant, that is always busy. I suggest making reservations

Everything was great but I felt the 10.00 price for a piece of carrot cake was a little steep; though it was delicious.

Birthday celebrations for my husband and good friend. The food was wonderful as always and our server was perfect. Sensed the pace of our celebration and was on the ready without being intrusive. The apps of fried cauliflower and green beans not to be missed. Great restaurant for ordinary dinner out or extraordinary celebrating.

Every single time I visit this restaurant, I am pleased with the meal and service. It is a great little place - definitely my favourite! It's the little touches (like cranberry and lemon in the water) and serving woman the wine first that are impressive. The menu changes which keeps you coming back for more!

The variety of food is excellent with items not always found in restaurants. The food is present beautifully and is always flavourful. The service however needs improvement. We waited almost a half hour to be seated even though we had reservations. As well, it took almost an hour for our entree to be served. I will go again because the food is excellent but service definitely needs improvement.

First time my wife and I dined here. Exceeded our expectations. Attentive staff. I chose the pork chop and it was professionally plated and perfectly cooked. My wife's pasta was also excellent. Only suggestion would be to eliminate the Redstone riesling.

First time there, however friends we were with had been previously and raved about the food and service. I can tell you we weren’t disappointed and are still talking about how good our meal was and how great the service was. The menu is small but has enough to accommodate all diners and the prices were all reasonable. Highly recommend the tomahawk pork chop if they have it on special that night.

Meet a friend for lunch as it was half-way between towns we each live in. This was the first time either of us visited the restaurant, although it had been recommended by other friends. Overall, I was very pleased with both the quality and selection of menu items as well as the service. I have made a reservation for lunch with 5 other friends in two weeks.

I have heard many good things about West Plains Bistro and had lunch there a few years ago. Sadly the entrees were lack lustre Friday night. The chicken liver pate appetizer was very good. Service was friendly and professional. Atmosphere was pleasant.

Our appetizers were outstanding our server was a credit to his profession. My wife loved the Chicken and mother-in-law enjoyed the Salmon on a bed of beluga lentils. I had the Steak and Frites I found they used a little too much salt for my liking however our server made it right.
