“A wonderful treat with great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

This restaurant has a very unique atmosphere, beautiful simple decor and great service. The special that night was steak with seasonal vegetables, including a soup or salad, for 38$. It was well worth the price because the meat was cooked to perfection, the vegetables were tasty, and it beautifully presented. The Grape and Olive has an interesting Martini menu as well. The evening entertainment was great too...

“Good restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

The food is good here and the bar is fun. It is nice to be able to eat at the hotel you stay at. It is a bit out of town but if you are staying here well worth checking out.

“Another excellent restaurant from BW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We stopped here on our way home from Montreal in which we were very disappointed food wise. My wife had the chicken breast with blue cheese and I had the rack of lamb. Both dishes absolutely excellent. Portions were perfect and wonderfully spiced and plated. I have to say, we do a fair bit of traveling, and so far we have never been disappointed at any Best Western restaurant.
