Seems to have gone downhill

Dined there last night for my husand's birthday. We went early and service was fine. The meals however were pretty mediocre. The Portobello Burger simply doesn't suit a regular white bun with lettuce, tomato and pickles - what happened to the open face one with sprouts and aoli ? I paid an extra... read more

I thought I would try Bean Bar as I heard it was a great spot to hit up and enjoy some nice quality cuisine... my mistake to go there. I stayed for 2 hours and ordered a couple different things: their French onion soup $9 is no where close to what french onion soup should be, and is crazy over... More

I dined with my family in the middle of February and Bean Bar did not disappoint. Living in Hamilton, this restaurant has proven time and again that it serves high quality, delicious food. I had the Bean Bar Club with Truffle Fries and it was very tasty. My mother had the Vegetarian Chilli and she said it was probably the... More

Went recently for dinner, went back for dessert a couple nights later. I had a salad (add steak) and my boyfriend had a spicy pasta with meatballs. My steak was prepared to a perfect medium-rare and the salad was perfectly dressed. My boyfriend really enjoyed the pasta. We decidedto skip dessert, but came back a couple nights later and had...

Since my son has been studying in Hamilton, the Bean Bar has become one of our favorite go-to restaurants. The kitchen is innovative, dishes always hot and delicious. My personal favorites are a Moroccan? vegetarian stew, really fragrant and hearty, their fried Calamari, and they always have some excellent beers on tap (beer at its best IMHO). If I had... More

We come here for lunch when in town to visit on of the kids at university. The menu here is HUGE, and everything is just SO yummy! This time I had the French onion soup, which came with this AMAZING croissant-like, butter-laden bun. Also had the Bean Bar salad, which was generous in size and beautifully done. Overall, another great... More

I have been here twice now. Great menu items and lots of selection, even for those with gluten sensitivities like myself. Most recent visit was with my mother and 2 80+ grandmothers. All were pleased, even the picky pallets of the older ladies :)

My wife and I dropped in to the Bean Bar this week for lunch. Last time we had questioned the meal, but this one took the cake-being so good. My wife ordered an apple and cheese sandwich on multigrain bread and it looked quite elegant when it arrived-she said it was delicious. I ordered a Cobb Salad which is usually... More

They charged the three of us a $1.00 each for a teaspoon of tartar sauce. If the waitress would have told me that a teaspoon of tartar sauce was dollar, I wouldn't have taken it because I would have felt ripped off. That's robbery !!! It would have been cheaper if I would have bought it at the store next... More
