We were a party of 30 and the room at the rear of the restaurant accommodated us well around four tables. The menu was varied and O enjoyed my choice of food. The staff were friendly and worked hard serving the group. Unfortunately the food came in stages but this was understandable considering the orders were taken from the menu,... More

Our Valentine's Day visit to the Old Bank Bistro was definitely a positive experience, even though the restaurant was incredibly busy as one might expect on that day In spite of couples and small groups showing up unannounced, our reservations were honoured, and the service was friendly and efficient. We were seated in the enclosed courtyard, apparently everyone's favourite part... More

We go to the Bistro often, generally for dinner and generally just the two of us. Recently we took our two grandchildren and it was a great experience for them too. We always have excellent service and food.

This is a favourite restaurant in the Niagara area. Great atmosphere and old charm with fantastic tasting meals. You couldn't ask for better service from the friendly welcome by Sam, a co-owner, to our waitress, Laurie........they both made us feel welcome and at home. A great start to any meal. After studying the great variety of meal selections we decided... More

Food was very good. The atmosphere rather romantic. The cost wasn't too bad but a little more than we normally pay for a night out.

Food was ok, I had crab cakes, don't know if they are scratch made. I do know the sauce was from a jar. Service was very slow and not very attentive.
