I came to this restaurant because a friend of mine is friends with one of the chefs. All she could do is rave about the food, So I took a chance. I was not disappointed! I had the mussels in an apple and bacon sauce, so good I could have licked the plate clean! (I tried as good as I... More

My husband and I dined at Boo's tonight. Being a Wednesday night it wasn't as crowded as usual which I guess was good for us. Service was excellent but we never felt rushed. My husband fancied the mussels from the listing of house specials, so he also ordered the Mango and Stilton Salad (Bibb lettuce, sliced mango, White Stilton, crystallized... More

I have taken my mom and family to this restaurant and have enjoyed it every single time. My favourite dish is the tornado steak with peper corn wine reduction. I love the vegetable and how they are prepared. I always make a point of going to this particular restaurant for family celebrations or just when I have a craving for... More

It is with regret that I write the following review of this restaurant where, a couple of month's ago, we enjoyed a very good meal. Because our first experience was so positive, we decided to bring two friends to Boos with the knowledge that our treat would be well received. Alas, the opposite occurred. The tiger shrimp appetizer was served... More

I rarely write a negative review about anyplace that my wife and I go. But tonight the experience we had at this restaurant was so bad I need to tell people about it. We walked into the restaurant an we should have turned right around and left. It was so hot an muggy we started sweating as soon as we... More

funky little restaurant. Everything ordered was superb. Staff very attentive but gave you lots of space and time between courses. From the crab cakes and scallop appetizers to the chicken and lamb mains to the cheesecake and creme bruelee desserts everything was delicious. Would go back in and heartbeat.....and we will be soon!!

Best beef tenderloin I have eaten anywhere-cooked to perfection and didn't need a knife. My husband ordered the roasted squash soup (delicious with some nice heat) and the halibut for his entree. While his portion was not huge (unlike his appetite) mine was the perfect amount. Parking on a Sunday night was not a problem and the restaurant was full.... More

The hostess was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient and made helpful recommendations. The winelist was very good offering a wide selction and all price ranges. The hostess (whose name I am very sorry that I can't remember but it... More

Im not sure how this restaurant can possibly be ranked so high of all in Hamilton. Went there with a group of friends just recently. The service for drinks was incredibly slow. Our waitress was pleasant enough but the whole bistro was understaffed. When I asked her how she finds the special chicken supreme she replied "I dont know I... More

Went in to Boo's with my mother and cousin after having read online that they offered Creme Brulee at the restaurant. I live in Toronto and my cousin was visiting from Boston. We had just come back from Niagara falls and were going to be heading back to Toronto later that night, but decided to stop by Boo's. We had... More
