Lovely bistro located on wine route and across from the Performing Arts Centre. We carry a large variety of VQA wines, many by the glass and even on tap. Hard time deciding? We also offer wine by the flight. We also have beer and cider on tap. Delicious and fresh, join us for tapas, for lunch, dinner or dessert, you will not be disappointed. We also have a boxed lunch option.

Delicious Night in St Catharines

We were going to Niagara Falls and decided to stop off in St Catharines. We had a very nice dinner at Dani's Bistro. The food was beyond amazing and the waitress was very attentive. We had dinner as well as desserts. Each of the three of us argued that our meal was best. We will definitely be... read more

What a great find. Dani's bistro came to our rescue. We were in need of an intimate setting to hold our son's Wedding Rehersal Dinner. Not coming from the area we had no idea where to go. So onto Tripadvisor I went. Dani's Bistro only had a few reviews back then, but they were all very good. I called, then... More

My husband and I were hungry after coming back across the border from Niagara. The Falls was too busy, so we headed towards St Catharine's and I did a TripAdvisor search of restaurants. Dani's was rated highly and looked good. We were so glad we went there. The bistro is lovely, the food was amazing and the entire experience was... More

My coworker and I ordered the box lunches, we both ordered the veggie wrap with pasta salad, I got the date square and they got cookies (1 chocolate and 1 oatmeal) and you get a drink. The portion size is perfect, and the price is very reasonable! I look forward to going to the restaurant next time.

Dinner out with my man. Love Dani's Bistro, a little gem of a restaurant in my own home town. Dinner feature was delicious and my hubby's salmon was awesome! Great local wine too!

My friends and I have met here for dinner a few times in the past and were often the only ones there. Very friendly staff; the wait on the food was a tad long..or maybe it seemed that way since I was staring at everyone else who already received theirs before mine. Otherwise, the food was great; very convenient location... More

Right on the main restaurant street of St. Catharine's, it's a great find. They say they're a VQA wine bar and they did have a decent selection of wines by the glass. (VQA is a designation of quality wines in Canada). Their menu is also set up so you can pop in for charcuterie or tapas and some wine. Judging... More

Our Friday Night Foodies Group dined at Dani's Bistro and we all really enjoyed our meals, the presentation and flavor were delicious. Our waitress Terri served us well and we all had a good laugh!

I've had duck in several places and this one is by far the best. Had it two nights in a row. Pete, the chef, graciously came out and spoke with us. High class! Everything we and our friends ate was super, yummy and a joy for the senses.

Adam the server did as good a job as he could being the only wait staff for the day. Perhaps there was only one person in the kitchen too because we waited over an hour for lunch and salads were delivered early so those people were either done or watching their lettuce wilt. The burger I had was very good... More
