The food was good. The service was really really slow. Considering the alternatives, I would suggest you try this place if you are in the area.

New Glasgow has a relatively limited selection for dining options. So if you want to take someone to the highest quality place around, this is a safe bet. From the perspective of fine dining options offered in major cities, The Bistro falls short. It makes a good effort but cannot compete. With that said, it's a good restaurant, great staff,... More

Starting with appetizers, flavor was "right up in your face" on every serving. The meal was superb in every respect from start to finish. Each dish was succulent, satisfying, and served in timely fashion. We are fortunate, indeed, to have this quality of food and service here in New Glasgow. We will be back!

The food and service are first rate. The menu is not too extensive which allows for expert preparation. Food was hot and presentation was excellent. This family owned restaurant is a must for visitors to New Glasgow.

This was my second visit to The Bistro for a team dinner with my office, about a dozen of us. Once again, I was more than impressed by the atmosphere, the service, the pace, and most importantly the delicious food from a chef and kitchen clearly taking pride in every plate they put out. Tonight I started with a garden... More

The New Glasgow Bistro is awesome.Great service and super delicious food and best of all, fresh food. I've always heard great things about the Bistro but for some reason it took me a long time to go. I was very... More

Wonderful surprise. Everything was so tasty! From the terrific bruccehettua (and goat cheese salad) as starters to the shepherds pie and the fishes. The service here was exceptional. Good malbec red wine. The chocolate pecan pie for dessert.

It is always a family favourite to visit The Bistro on Archimedes Street. Whenever we come to town, my wife likes to get there at least once. Menu selections are simple but satisfying and the service is second to none. Rob and Heather are running a first class operation.

As part of our regular annual family visits to New Glasgow a visit to The Bistro is always on the agenda. Our last visit confirmed this choice. This is great place for family and friends to enjoy well prepared meals served in the most hospitable manner. The ambience supports the sharing of a memorable experience which encourages return visits.
