Had a great meal here with friends. The exterior does not do the interior justice as it is cosy, whether you are in the lounge or dining room. Our server was very knowledgeable and patient as she explained the menu and food/drink pairings. Overall a little pricier but definitely worth it for the flavour.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a fantastic romantic atmosphere and I want to love it, but its getting harder to return due to mediocre wait service. With this price point I shouldn't have to wait for drinks and get food orders mixed up. I am always underwhelmed by the wait staff at Bears' Den and I bristle at the... More

Excellent restaurant with all the amenities expected of a high class restaurant, but with a humble engaging staff that are eager to please and ensure your night is memorable. As it has been since it beginings this place has always set the standard for first class food, sevice and experience, Well done Bears Den staff.

Food was okay - quite overpriced for what you get. Service was terrible. Party of twelve on a Thursday. Not busy in the restaurant but still service was lacking. We returned a couple of drinks as they were not good at all, turns out we were charged for them anyway. Servers were defensive when asked on the status of items... More

The food was not bad, but not as great as it used to be, and not worth the price charged. The prime rib was cooked well, but the au jus was non existent, the seasoning was bland, and the yorkshire pudding was cold and stale. The fish was good and the appetizers were good but for the price the portions... More

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
