Came in for a bridal shower during barrielicious - service, drinks, food ambiance all AMAZING. I highly recommend this place for a nice date night, or having a large luncheon or party. Thank you Painters Hall for hosting a wonderful lunch for our beautiful bride. We will be back!

My husband and I went to Painters Hall Bistro last night for dinner, what a wonderful place. Our waiter Jose was charming and attentive, the food was absolutely to die for! Chef Rachel does an awesome job with the food. While we were sitting there all you could hear throughout the restaurant was "look at the presentation" "that is beautiful"... More

What a wonderful spot for dinner. We arrived and were seated imediately by very friendly staff. Our waiter had great knowledge of the menu and assisted us in making our choices. We started by sharing an appetizer tray that included homemade bacon, cheeses and jam. Amazing flavours. I had a chicken dish. The chicken was perfectly cooked, moist and flavourful.... More

We went on a Sunday night. The restaurant was quiet. Our server was very young, but exceptionally knowledgeable. He tuned into the fact that this date night was way past due and went out of his way to ensure we had the most exceptional evening. The Chef also went out of their way to bring us little "extra's" and recommendations... More

Very good food. Painters Hall is one of those "hidden gems" that every downtown seems to have. They often present specials for holidays like a couples Valentines dinner, or the Barrielicious event. All the meals are prepared just for you.

Best service in town. Classic cuisine, not many choices but all great. Wine list a little weak for the quality of the food

I love that this is an independent restaurant ...not cookie cutter atmosphere as typically found in Franchises.... It's intimate and unlikely location make for a refreshing change... Five star .... and I'm not easy to please....

Since I moved in Barrie, I tried a lot of restaurants. This one is by far the best one yet. The ambiance is great. The price are really good for the quality of food and entertainment you get. When I have guest that come to visit, I consistently bring them to the Painters Hall Bistro for a good meal and... More
