This is a restaurant that is fun, active and serves great food. We visited during Countrylicious so the menu will change now. But the wait staff were happy and couldn't do enough for you. I would however recommend reservations for any weekend. They are always full!

This was our second trip to Wellington looking at real estate to purchase for retirement. East and Main Bistro was recommended by our real estate agent and what a great spot! The food was excceptional and the service was friendly and served in short time considering the amount of people in the bistro. My wife and I were both impressed... More

Came on Good Friday after trying several other places - full with no tables available without reservation. But we were seated at a communal table and it was charming. The countrylicious menu looked interesting but we didn't want that much food so ordered a la carte. We had the chicken and lamb shank. The chicken was the better choice. The... More

This restaurant was highly recommended and they had their Spring Countrylicious menu. We were immediately greeted and seated by very nice staff. My partner ordered the crab cakes and they were probably the worst we have ever tasted. I had the tomato soup which was delicious. I also ordered the steak and it was so tough I couldn't eat it....

Yesterday I ate lunch here alone, before attending an event at the arena. I had the 28 day aged striploin burger which I mistakenly thought was a steak sandwich. Of course it was a burger & a juicy one at that. I chose frites as the included side & they were delicious & so plentiful I took some home with... More

Second visit and very disappointed. Service was slow and poor. We all ordered striploin steaks with specific requests re med-rare, etc. They all arrived overcooked and cool.

We made a point of having lunch here on a recent visit to Wellington. In the summer we had dinner st the restaurant and couldn't say enough good things about it. Lunch was less impressive. We were greeted warmly and offered a choice of tables as the restaurant was not busy. My partner had quiche with salad. It was fine... More

We had a wonderful dinner at East & Main on a Sunday evening. Its a very pretty setting with a warm and friendly feel to it. And though the price was not cheap, I thought that it was worth the price we paid. Definitely recommend, though probably not for children.

The service was great. They have a great selection of local wines. We had the goat cheese and mushroom tart, seafood pasta and steak. The tart was different and very good, the pasta was delicious but it was a very small portion for $29. The steak was overcooked, ordered medium, got medium well to well and it was very tough....
