I really enjoyed the quiet and romantic setting in this restaurant and the food was incredibly good! I ordered the tomato feta soup which was delicious and the beef tenderloin with peppercorn sauce was perfect! The crème brulee dessert was also much loved!! We enjoyed this restaurant as a couple but it would also be great for celebrations as there... More

The Bistro has been providing excellent meals for many years now in New Glasgow. We do not hesitate to trek 50+ km from a neighbouring town because we feel the dining experience cannot be matched here. The food is always fresh and delicious. The vegetables cooked to perfection and the beef tenderloin with goat cheese is awesome! What makes the... More

Much a due about nothing! We do not mind spending money on great food and service, but when you spend top dollar on mediocre food and service ... Disappointing !

I was happy to celebrate my birthday with great company, excellent personalized service and delicious food. The mussels were served steaming with the perfect amount of sausage (house made) as usual. We had a great time, if they are offering the Blueberry Martini.....try it you will like it. Hope to return again soon.

The front of house service was excellent along with great service throughout the night. A small establishment but the tables are well spaced with a pleasant ambiance. There was an adequate menu along with a selection of specials, it made it difficult to make a selection as they all sounded good. I enjoyed my chowder followed by halibut and delicious... More

Make reservations for this small find in New Glasgow. You will find a dining experience as good as in any big city with all the small town warmth and charm. Large portions with lots of flavour with each ingredient carefully prepared steaming hot before being plated. Each vegetable on the plate had been carefully chopped and individually seasoned showing a... More

Service was first-class and well-informed. Food was interesting and tasty. The chef knows how to cook vegetables properly, and how to present them well. It's definitely a spot for special occasions, for that elegant meal you promised yourself. Not for the burgers and fries crowd.
