Stopped in for quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised , not only with the venue but with the food. My quiche was most delicious and the pastry perfect. My daughter raved about her gluten free pasta (and she is pretty fussy). My husband's curry carrot soup was not too spicey and so good. The hostess/ waitress was lovely, efficient and... More

Really enjoyed visiting this restaurant for the first time. The service was excellent, the food portion adequate and the food quality excellent. Granted, we were there fairly early in the evening (Saturday), however the pace at which we went thru dinner was very enjoyable. I am getting so tired of those places that want you out in 1/2 hour and... More

My family and I recently went for dinner and had an amazing time. The food was very delicious and the service was so attentive. I had the Arugula and Poached Pear Salad which was a perfect medley of flavours. For dinner I had the daily pasta which was amazing and the portion was very generous. My two children shared the...

My Boyfriend and I were at the Bistro Saturday night, the food, the wait staff and the atmosphere made our evening special. Too many time the wait staff are either at your table too often or not to be seen. I love the feeling that the whole experience was enjoyable from the Steaks we had to delightful deserts and the...

We tried this place 4 years ago and they have home down hill. Firstly our server Laura started off nice then her attention to us declined 100%, the couple behind us noticed and commented as well. I am pregnant so only has soup and salad, the soup came with the smallest piece of bread, I should of taken a picture,... More

A year ago I gave this once delightful little Bistro an excellent review with its wonderful complimentary bread that is no longer complimentary but an additional $4; the succulent schnitzel that is now way overcooked and much smaller, and as for the chicken pot pie, it is better at Swiss Chalet; AND the prices that were very reasonable if you...

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry your meal didn't meet up to your expectations, and you were disappointed with the price increase. We have not increased our prices since introducing the early bird menu 7 years ago, and have not done it without due diligence! In the meantime, as you know, food costs have increased substantially, as well as... More

I am very sad. This has been our go to Restaurant for the past 3 years and we spend a lot of time and money here. We live within walking distance and on average eat here almost once a week. We love the ambience and the staff. It has always been our home away from home as I work evenings... More

We returned to West Plains Bistro for dinner this week. The food is still good, the ambience very pleasant and the service good. However, after checking out the website for the early bird dinner, I was surprised to find that there has been a price increase as of last week when we arrived there. The website certainly needs updating with... More

I tried this place for the first time last week. We went for lunch. Many items aren't value for money. It is certainly geared to an older demographic. Nonetheless, I like to try some staple bistro food when I'm at a bistro. I had the Cesar salad and the French onion soup. I cannot not try the French onion soup... More

Noted the 4.8 rating, so booked the Early Bird dinner. Even had a table on the charming patio on a lovely summer night. Choice of soup or salad , several entrees & about 9 incredible, home-made desserts. Wonderful ambiance & attentive staff. All food was excellent, with creative presentations. And the price was modest. for the best meal I've had... More
