The B Side is the lounge area of the Bears Den, offering the full menu selection available on the restaurant side in a casual, less formal, relaxed atmosphere. There is no shortage of dark wood, with lofty ceilings and soft lighting, including real candles on the tables....a nice touch in a lounge. The wine list is extremely extensive, but we... More

This is an impressive high end venue and aside from that there isn't anything good to say. The variety of food was very sparse and the quality not good. Six of the more pricey items, e.g. shrimp, "steak bites" were to be served at the table. The shrimp serving consisted of one shrimp per person with a very unspecial spice... More

My husband & I were planning on Fathers Day Brunch only to discover sold out. We had a gift Certificate so went night prior for dinner. Beautiful evening, dinner was to die for. Look forward to returning as one of the best meals we have encountered in awhile.

Excellent service, very knowledgeable staff. Menu selections kept to a few I think so that they can focus on perfecting each one, and they do. I had the 'garden selection' and what was expected to be fresh and crisp was while what was expected to be melt in your mouth tender and juicy also achieved that. Very nice!

The quality of the food and service seldom disappoint at this restaurant. We sat on the Bistro side and I was happy to see they have returned to offering their full menu on the Bistro side! We shared the artisan cheese platter and ahi tuna for our starters. The in-house made fig preserve was a very nice addition to the... More

We have come to the B Side Bistro a few times in the past year. Except for on one occasion, the service has been excellent; attentive but not obtrusive. Food is always delicious, although tends to be on the heavy side . One time our server tailored a dish to specific request which was not on the menu. Good wine... More

We have just got back from an amazing Sunday brunch at the restaurant. Including tax, the brunch came to a little over $27 each. I was very happy with the selection of food available and stayed more towards the breakfast items of fresh fruit, yoghurt, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and pancakes. There was omelets, eggs Benedict, roast meats, salads, pastries... More

The Bear's Den has been our favorite restaurant since we discovered it 5 years ago. A place to entertain out of town guests and celebrate special occasions. Since December of 2013 we have noticed a declilne in the food quality and service. Last night was the ultimate disaster. Cold prime rib, tastless steak, overcooked salmon, withered vegetables and substandard service.... More

The ambiance was rustic yet elegant. The staff were top notch and every bit as professional as a 5 star restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was magnificent. I had the fish, my hubby and our friends had the steak. Everything was great, the salad was fresh and the caesers were made PERFECTLY! I would definitely recommend this... More

I hosted my wife's significant birthday celebration there and I can't say enough good things about the staff, service and food. It was a group of 17 people and it was a perfect evening!! The food on all counts was excellent, fresh, flavourful and fantastic. A great evening.
