“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Food and service were exceptional. Date night goes until mid-may and provides for a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for $99. You don't need a steak knife for their filet.

“Superb meal in a nice setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Dined on the Chateaubriand - no steak knife required. It was hot, juicy tender and flawlessly cooked. The dinner for two special that is on right now can not be beat for value. $99 for 2 includes 3 courses plus wine. The Chateaubriand was a $12 up charge from that. However, they had fillet and lamb that also looked very appealing. Try the creme brulee for a fine finish.

I don't think there is a bad dish in the house based on my experience. This is not just a highly recommended but a MUST DO for foodies in the area. The Rustica is also an easy option for tourists who didn't pack for a formal affair but want to enjoy top notch food. The location is more dressy-casual than formal and both friendly and accommodating. The views were beautiful too. What a location for special occasions.

“Excellent! Best meal I've had in a long time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Rarely, if ever, have I given a restaurant or a hotel a five-star rating, but with Rustica, I have no choice. The staff were amazing from the moment we showed up, they took our coats and quickly showed us to our table. There was only two waitresses working on the night we were there and the restaurant was packed. They handled themselves really professionally and no one had to wait for food. They were excellent. Now, let me tell you about the food....

The food was to die for! It was, by far, the best Chateaubriand, I've ever had! I ordered the scallop to start, which at first, I was a bit disappointed because you only get one. However, the menu was a fixed priced menu, so for $99 per COUPLE (not per PERSON), which included a bottle of wine, you had one starter, one main, one side and one dessert per PERSON. There was loads of food by the end of it and they had to practically roll me home.

The steak or chateaubriand, in our case, was absolutely fabulous. It was tender with a delicious crust on the outside and then a wonderful au jus to dip it in. Our sides were the button mushrooms and the sweet potatoe mash,which we had to ask for the recipe because it was so good. The food was served piping hot. I also added a lobster tail to my meal for an additional $12 , but it was worth it too. For dessert, I had the toffee crunch creme brule,which was so good. It was a creme brule with Skor bar pieces on the top. The brule was made just how it should be with a crunchy layer of carmelized sugar on top and then a deliciously smooth and creamy desert underneath. The Skor bar just made it their own. My husband had the flourless chocolate cake and if you are a choc-o-holic, then that's the dessert for you. It was small, but you really wouldn't be able to eat much more of it, as it was dark chocolate, with a ganache on top, and very rich tasting. We overheard another table raving about it and asking for the recipe too.

All in all, it was just one of the best meals we've had in a long time and the bill was so reasonable. We gave a good tip and hope that when we return again, it will be equally as good because now, they've set the standard. Well done!

“Simple food, quality setting, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012 via mobile

The room is plush and oozes quality. High-backed leather chairs, tables spaced well apart, furnishings that make it a quiet and elegant retreat.

The food is simple and straightforward, our beautiful steaks cooked exactly as we ordered.

The service attentive and helpful.

This would be a great place for couples, or a foursome looking for a quiet and elegant evening where you can actually hear each other.

Not recommended for larger groups, nor for children.

The value is excellent - at least when we visited in winter - there was a fixed price option at $90 for two, which included 3 courses each plus a bottle of wine from a short list (or $29 credit towards another wine of your choice).
