Ladies, you are doing it right! Wine selection is awesome, daily features are always creative, and the fact that the menu changes with the seasons is really refreshing for Barrie---I think it shows that there is care put into the restaurant, and that the chef is versatile and educated. Dining out is a hobby of mine, I've also worked in... More

Full stop. Mel's selection of plates is constantly changing with the seasons to spotlight local ingredients. Chefs Sarah and Em serve up all your favorite comfort foods with a "groovy twist". They are... More

Now this is a true bistro with excellent quisine and service. Open kitchen with the chefs in plain view preparing your meal, the wine racks you can browse and then actually select your wine and carry the bottle to your table and the owner on hand to help take orders and serve dishes !! Fantastic little secret in Barrie, Onrtario

A little noisy (strangely) and a little too warm (kitchen is very close). Great quality ingredients but food presentation is on the decline (the last 4 months... More

I am frequently at Groovy Tuesdays Bistro for lunch. The food never falls short of superb – something like comfort food with a gourmet twist. The staff is always gracious and accommodating with menu modifications or requests. One of my favourite lunch menu items is the burger, they are fresh homemade burgers and they are always garnished with a delectable... More
