The steak was definitely great, but really everything (food, atmosphere, service, etc.) was excellent. I would say it is without a doubt the best restaurant in the city (that I've been to).

Quiet atmosphere good to chat over a savory meal. Waiter was knowledgeable about menu and paring recommendations.

In its new building closer to center city and much larger than the original townhouse where I first encountered this excellent eating place, Beckta has become a much larger and more impersonal place, although the food is still very good.

I reserved our table ahead of time and requested a window seat. I wasn't disappointed! We were nestled away inside a window nook very comfortably and treated like queens the entire evening. Every morsel of food was unique and delicious. We were treated to wine tasting and expertise from the staff on hand, including the gentleman who wrote the wine... More

We did the three course fixed prix on a weeknight. Interesting options, tilting towards in season. The brocolli soup was lovely. And they found me a wine (sauvignon gris) that went perfectly. The service is professional, although i think we were forgotten towards the end, as we weren't really drinking. The non-alcoholic drink options were intriguing and delightful. A lovely... More

We sat in the hushed, elegant lounge for a glass of wine and a beer before heading to Town for our dinner reservation. As we sat there, I almost wished we hadn't booked at Town and could stay at Beckta to eat :) The server we had at Beckta was lovely - very friendly and engaging without being obtrusive at... More

I have been wanting to try Beckta for a while, and it was my birthday so we decided to go. My husband and I wanted the full experience as well, and we did the 5 course tasting menu. They tell you the main component and the rest is a surprise. Not only was it incredible, the dishes and all the... More

Looking to spoil your tastebuds? Professionally designed food for a taste you've never had before and probably won't outside of here. Service was great from start to finish. The oysters were full flavour as was the soup apps. Wine choices were the best. They made great recommendations to match our food choices. We had cod and steak - both phenomenal... More

The first time I went with a group of work friends and I think it was an off night. Service was a little wonky and a couple of food issues. The second time I went with my wife on her birthday weekend and it was stellar. The service was terrific, fun, and the food was great. I highly recommend sitting... More

Recently had dinner at Beckta (romantic birthday with a companion). The service is out of this world. Truly world-class - and I am a tough patron to please when it comes to service. Unfortunately the food did not equal the service. Our amuse bouche was excellent, but very large. Sadly our fresh oysters (as appetizers) were scrawny and lacklustre. The... More
