Great food, very friendly staff. Seasonal menu. Good beer and wine selection. Tapas/small plates offer great alternatives

A wonderful place for dinner or lunch, and also for tapas on certain evenings, The Rousseau House should be on everyone in the Hamilton-Burlington-Brantford area's list of restaurants for that "special occasion" Lunches are special, dinner is outstanding....even sitting at the bar for "munchies" deserves top marks

Mediocre food at best. Service was lacking... missed attention to detail. And to top it off they add a 20% tip for larger parties (12 people).

My wife and I decided to go out for dinner. Cavallo Nero was booked solid so we decided to try Rousseau House again. Fish tacos, crispy duck salad, chicken pot pie, and fries (they call them frites). Very little taste to the crispy duck and the chicken pie was mainly crust. Portions are too small relative to price. No wonder... More

Prices are consistant with a fine dining experience which this was not. The waiter was quite busy and could not serve all tables so we were served initially by the hostess who was very nice but not experienced as a waitress. The food was mediocre at best. The meat was very fatty and not much flavour and the fish was... More

No question that the quality of the food is excellent. However the portions are so small it is embarrassing to witness given the huge prices.

We had a menu of many choices. Beef, Chicken and Fish were supplied. Those that had the Pickerel or Chicken enjoyed their meal. Beef eaters will find that there is not enough. Choice of soup or arugula salad. Both were enjoyed. There was no choice on the dessert. Some people went without dessert as they didn't like pumpkin cheesecake.There were... More

We generally come to Rousseau House about once a year as we live quite a ways away. We were there recently on a Saturday evening and were seated upstairs for the first time. Between my wife and I we split 3 appetizers and one entre. Everything we ordered was very good. Service was great as always and our bill was... More

The Rousseau House was the perfect place for my husband and I to have a nice dinner together. Our server Chris, was so knowledgable about the food, wine, the city of Ancaster, etc. I have to mention that I did bring our 8 month old on the date due to a cancelled babysitter. It was no problem. They welcomed him... More
