Fantastic experience

Dinner in the Wine Bar as the restaurant was fully booked. Amazing service from the moment you enter until you leave. Great tasting menu with lots of helpful advice from our server.

We were very disappointed in our recent visit. Beckta has always been a special dining destination for us. For special occasion, we have often celebrated at Bekta. Recently for our wedding anniversary, we naturally chose Bekta to celebrate the special moment and also to try out the new location. We were very disappointed in the food quality as it seems...

We had lunch at Beckta and enjoyed every bite. The lunch menu offers a good selection of main course- our group chose the trout, the kale salad and the fettuccine and they were all excellent. We also had interesting beer choices and a lovely Chenin Blanc from Ontario The service was excellent and very helpful in our ordering. The decor... More

If you love great food and appreciate excellent service from informed waitstaff, go here. It's less formal than Bekta but the food is still top shelf. Appetizer sized plates means that a table can try a variety of dishes & suits (or challenges) most palates.

We have been to different excellent restaurants and our diner last night was probably one of our best experience. The quality and presentation of the food was outstanding and the wine paring perfect. We never felt rushed and the service was very discreet: the young lady that looked after us very knowledgable.

I was here for a business dinner in one of their rooms. The place looks amazing. The food lives up to their four diamond awards which you can get a glance when you're walking into the restaurant. The appetizers were great and the main dish "ok". I still havent found a reason why a simple steak cannot be cooked to... More

I took a large group here, they were excited to attend. We had to set a special menu in advance, the purpose of which I didn't quite understand. We weren't given the opportunity to select from the full menu for the lunch. I'm certain there's a reason for that, but whatever, it didn't deter me. The restaurant is lovely. The... More

On two occasions now I have enjoyed a delightful experience at the new Beckta Wine Bar which is located at the rear of that historic home on Elgin Street which is now the new location for Beckta. I should add that it is great to see how this historic building has been nicely restored and modernized with a very pleasing... More

I was looking forward to our dinner but was some what disappointed. I found the main course selection very limited and no specials of the day. When I asked our server to describe each dish on the menu, because they do need explaining, he was no salesperson and a few items he had never tried, so he could not even... More
