Everything you eat is commenced with cloves of garlic. Wine was not expensive. It does not matter what you order, it all tastes like garlic.

What's not to say....great food, great service, cheap coffee (cappaccinos 75 cents) and if the owner is in, be prepared to be entertained - all included in a very reasonably priced menu. Lots of choices. Ambience is very romantic - this is the place to be on Valentine's and those special occasions in your life.

The Cook Shop is one of Windsor's hidden gems. It is non-pretentious, but always offers a fabulous pasta dinner (amongst other selections) at a reasonable price. The service is attentive, but not pushy. If you tell your server that you want to linger over appetizers, they will oblige. However, this is a small restaurant that requires turnover on busy nights,... More

Ah...the Cook Shop! Everything is good. The food is excellent. Service is exceptional. And the prices are among the best in the city of Windsor. The restaurant has the feel of a European bistro and is best enjoyed in a small group setting (table for two or four). You'll see many repeat customers at the Cook Shop in Windsor.

The Cook's shop is one of those places that unless you are looking for it, you will miss it. This place is not to be missed. Great food. Great prices. You will not be disappointed. You will however need a reservation. Try the mushroom appetizer!!!
