Good and not so great! First, the grounds and the restaurant are beautiful. The ambiance is charming. Service was excellent, efficient, helpful, cheerful and was probably the hilights of our meal. We shared salmon cakes with banana relish for an appetizer. This was excellent and I give them a lot of credit for making such an original dish, which was... More

My experience at Bella's this past week was simply superb. The food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. I can't believe that hot waitress in the leggings is over 50 years old, wow - she's a beauty and obviously worked and trained in other fine dining establishments, as above average hospitality skills are so rare these days. We enjoyed... More

I normally don't write reviews about Restaurants.....but apparently I should. I dine out often and have been to Bella's several times with several friends and have nothing but great things to say. In saying that, it was much to my dismay that I read a review that was appalling! I don't know who this person was or where they came... More

I recently read a very mean-spirited review from CTC Employment..... they apparently liked the food but were very insulting regarding the less than Hollywood physique, and age of their server. What kind of people are they? Have they looked in the mirror lately. This is supposed to be the age of equal opportunity employment, with respect to gender, race, creed,... More

I went for a dinner and I was surprised to have live jazz. A nice surprise and created a great atmosphere. Was a lovely addition to my experience!

Enjoyed our first time visit! What a beautiful place... The inside is gorgeous! We really enjoyed our meals but unfortunately very over priced- chicken should never cost $28.00 and an iced tea $4.00. That would be our disappointment is the prices! But food and everything else is great!

Had lunch a few days ago and it was a very nice experience. Very good food and I can't stop thinking of the salad served with my meal. Really good! The server was charming and the atmosphere was elegant. I even bought some clothes in the lovely gift shop. I'll be going back soon.

Last week we visited Bella's for lunch with friends from B.C. who had had their wedding reception at Shaver House 30 years ago. They were delighted with the renovations and the upscale look of Bella's as it is today. There were 6 in our party and we were warmly greeted upon our arrival. We all enjoyed delicious cream of asparagus... More

I recently dinned with a Friend at Bella of Ancaster... I had the scallop dish with celery root puree and local asparagus. So amazing!!!! and creative I might add. I then followed that appetizer with the rack of lamb cooked to a perfect medium rare. My friends had a variety of other delights. One had the Salmon cakes with banana... More
