“Taste Extravaganza!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Had another great meal at the West Side Bistro last evening - had the Chicken and Scallops in mango sauce with vegetable basmati rice - simply to die for!!! And then wonderful Pumpkin Cheesecake for dessert - had to take it home because of the huge portions in the entre. The food at this restaurant can compare with the best of anywhere I've ever eaten!! Thanks, Phil and Darlene!

“Another Special Occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Once again some of our friends joined us to help celebrate our 32nd anniversary--and where else but at our absolute favorite eating establishment, the West Side Bistro. And once again Darlene and Phil made it extra special with the most incredible food and wonderful, personal service. From my Waldorf salad to the delectable blacken salmon steak to the to-die-for pumpkin cheesecake dessert (that Darlene made especially for us), my meal was, as always, fantastic. And everyone else raved about his or her meal as well. An intimate setting, incredible food and awesome service--what's not to love about the West Side Bistro!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

My bf and I went here and the food was delicious. I had salmon and he had lamb special. Both were amazing and flavourful. The thai mussels were great, and homemade scones were to die for. Definitely going back next time we are in new glasgow.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have had both lunch and dinner here. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff very friendly and you can watch you meal be prepared, if you wish. Anything I have had anything here would be well worth the visit.
