Always Excellent

I eat here a couple of times a year, and the food is always fresh & the menu changes to feature what's in season. Reasonable prices & good-sized portions.

My wife and her sister recently had to be in Brockville for several days. They ate here on more than one evening and remarked to me how excellent the food was. I joined them for lunch on their last day. I highly recommend the Bistro for their food and service was fast and efficient.

This is one of the most charming restaurants in Brockville, and the food is consistently well prepared. However, on the recent evening in question, it took 40 minutes to get our main courses, even though we did not have appraisers. Furthermore, the restaurant was not very busy, either inside or on the outside patio. Since we had an engagement right... More

We've finally found a restaurant in Brockville that we would call fine dining in Brockville. Although the restaurant is not overly fancy, the menu offers interesting options. The portions are huge and the quality is very good. The wine list is ok and offers a couple really nice choices. If I had a choice, I would have rated the restaurant... More

Overpriced restaurant with mediocre food. Service is very slow with subpar food. Would not recommend this restaurant!

I have not been there since the summer at which point we sat outside in the patio. It was beautiful, it reminded me of an English Garden, there was even a resident cat. The food was amazing, the service was outstanding and I would highly recommend this place.

The food is...for want of a better word, eclectic. Having said that, I have allergies to some common food items, and one or another seemed to be in every item I wanted. So I went old school, Steak....and it was very tasty. The service was ok, not spectacular, not awful either. The venue needs work and more space. When the... More

This restaurant has excellent foods and also serves gluten free options and will work with their patrons who are on special diets.

I must quantify my rating of 3. On the food alone it merits more like a 4.5 but the restaurant itself drags the score down. In some fairness we did arrive 5 minutes after opening and in winter which I imagine is slower than tourist season. Now having said that we walked in and easily waited 4 to 5 minutes... More

Buell St Bistro ranks first in my dining experiences for 2014. The chef had just placed Organic Chicken,a new dish, on the menu when we visited for the first time in May. When I saw the chicken had Earl Grey tea crusting I had to try it. Described as, "Organic free range chicken breast with an Earl Grey-fruit tea rub... More
