We use to go here quite often, especially for pizza,, but the food has gotten progressively worse. The last time, each of us ordered a pizza and they were both terrible. I think I have had better pizza from McCains. Very dissapointing. Our leftovers even ended up in the trash...and honestly... Who doesn't like cold pizza. Crust didn't taste fresh... More

This restaurant is in a nice location and the food is quite good . The menu is varied with Greek and Italian being their specialties . Great Pizzas !!! The service is very good . My only complaint is the atmosphere is rather cold and the booths ... Seats are hard as rocks ; there's no cushioning on them .... More

Had lunch with a client here recently, very impressed with the food and service. We ate in the atrium, cool concept. And, they have good local beers on tap. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

We visited this restaurant because I saw it on here and we were traveling to the area for a night. We asked for the courtyard as I had seen photos of it and liked the atmosphere. It lived up to my expectations and far exceeded them! The gentleman that greeted us at the door was a friendly, funny older gent... More

I was coming over from Buffalo and meeting a friend from north of Toronto and checked for a restaurant in the downtown area. In spite of some negative reviews I thought we would take a chance since it was only going to be a quick lunch. We were very pleasantly surprised. It's a delightful setting in a restored old bank....

No romance found here. We were Very disappointed with our experience at the Bistro. We made reservations over a week in advance and still we were seated in the back corner by the kitchen door. So much for the piano bar as we couldn't even hear it. Service - what service? Our waitress was not attentive and came to the... More

I have been to the Bistro several times, and they are always spot on. I try something different, each time, and I must say, that they have an excellent chef on staff. Always tasty and a good size helping. Delicious desserts also. Slightly upscale, which usually costs a bit more,but worth it. I would definitely recommend eating at this restaurant,... More

Best food I've ever had in a restaurant. If you're looking for a relaxed casual fine dining experience with something on the menu for everybody, this is the place. Very reasonably priced. I've eaten at the Bistro numerous times over the past 4-5 years and have never been disappointed with the meal or the service. When I have friends come... More

Food was VERY good, but for the price of the pasta, salad should have been included, as opposed to costing extra.

I've had the pleasure of dining at Old Bank Bistro several times now and each time was wonderfully restful, delicious and reasonably priced. I've made it my "Fort Erie Special Occasion" place.
