I wanted to lick the plate!

We had an amazing dining experience this evening. A friend recommended this restaurant after hearing we were looking for a place with good ribs. Boy was she right! I had the trout, while my husband had the ribs.(My mouth is salivating at the memory) Great service and ambiance to match the food.

In life most of the truly elegant experiences center around the concept of "mature simplicity". The Simplicity Bistro in Thornbury is that and more. We were a table of six, and all ordered different meals, and in the main they were excellent. One of our table had the venison. It was awesome, and the presentation was elegant. I had the... More

Every time we've visited, it's always been a great experience. From the servers to the Chef, this place has got it together. Not too casual, not too formal; a bistro experience that will have you coming back for more. We been several times for lunch, brunch, and dinner and never felt it was the "same old". Definitely worth the trip... More

The menu changes regularly so there's always something new to look forward to. Tasty chicken crepes for my friend and Roasted veggie flatbread for me, all delicious, never disappointing.

Have been twice already this month for Brunch. They have removed Steak & Eggs from their Brunch menu - but don't let that stop you... ask and they will make it! Everyone in our party enjoyed their food; great tasting and plentiful portions. You will not be disappointed.

January 5th, our family had the pleasure of dining again at Simplicity Bistro in Thornbury. First I must mention that we were all impressed with the tremendously positive improvement to the acoustics! My son noticed there was a felt material under the table top and we could see some special material curtains. It worked! The place was full but all... More

We were impressed with the quantity and quality. The service was slightly slow from being told our food was being plated to service. Interesting, tasty food. Kids' menu was high quality and great value. Overall, very enjoyable... Even though we were at the cold table at the front. Thanks.

Simplicity Bistro is the best restaurant I have been too in Thornbury in a while (since Largo first opened). It has a nice intimate and romantic feel. Great date place or dinner with the family / friends. I had the noodle soup for appetizer and steak for dinner. The steak was cooked perfectly. Others at the table had the ribs... More

Not cheap but the food is excellent, well prepared and beautifully presented. The service is always good and the staff consistently friendly. A dinner for 2 with appetizer and wine is about $100 but well worth it.
