West Plains Bistro is always one of my favorite restaurants for lunch or dinner. Always great food, fabulous service and wonderful atmosphere. Prices are reasonable with good quality food with excellent presentation. I love the early bird special for dinner and it is a regular spot for our birthday group celebrations. You do need to call for a reservation as... More

Definitely a hidden gem in Burlington away from downtown. Food is spectacular and the specials are so creative and tempting each time we go. The only negative is food sometimes takes a while but honestly, it's so good I don't ever care. It's usually packed so make a reservation as they close a bit early. My boyfriend and I go... More

We went on a Saturday evening for their last seating (7:30pm), we were sat right in front of the door which was not optimal since it was VERY cold that night and people keep coming in, good thing was it was their last seating of the day so once everyone was in the door was only opened once in a...

This intimate little bistro serves a wonderful variety of fresh and innovative food. Ambience is soothing. Chef will customize dishes to suit people with allergies or food preferences and there is something for all on this menu. We love the Mushrooms on toast and the Moroccan Shrimp. The salads are fresh and lively with beautiful ingredients. Lovely selection of wines.... More

After spending a few hours at the Royal Botanical Garden on a chilly December afternoon, my friend and I decided to stop off at the first decent looking restaurant we could find. It was the West Plains Bistro. What a treat! She had the pasta special of the day with the soup of the day and I had the chicken... More

We were a recent group of 8 for our annual Christmas lunch. We went on a Friday so it was good to have a reservation. The restaurant is not overly large, but it is very nicely decorated (and NOT over-decorated for Christmas as you see in so many places) with a polished yet relaxed ambiance. The menu has good variety... More

My girlfriends and I were out to do the Burlington Hamilton Christmas House tour and stopped for lunch at the West Plains Bistro. This was a Saturday afternoon. It wasn't to busy when we arrived. We placed our order and we received nothing for over half an hour. When I got my tea I asked for milk it took forever... More

Eyeraa, Owner at West Plains Bistro, responded to this review

I am sorry you were disappointed with the service. I agree, that was not a great day for service at the bistro due to unfortunate circumstances of my scheduled staff being sick that day and a commitment at the Burlington Art Centre Soup Bowl event which two staff had to attend. I was left solo that day, and I was... More
